Overall, Mr. Cunha and his staff did an excellent job in representing my interests during my divorce. I would definitely refer his office to my friends and family.

Last year, my now ex-wife and I decided that we no longer were able to live together and that we needed to end our marriage. After things became so unbearable at home, I finally had to leave. With several weeks passing by and the dust settling, I believed my ex-wife and I would be able to amicably divide all of our property and agree on custody of our child. Things began spiraling out of control to the point my ex was keeping me from spending time with our kid. I decided that I needed a good lawyer to help me out.
I went online and researched local attorneys. When I met with James at his office, he appeared confident and listened to what I had to say. He didn’t give me any BS or some sales pitch to get me to retain him. During my initial meeting with him, I truly felt that he was already representing me. He answered all my questions and advised on what needed to be done.
Once retained, James immediately took control of the situation. Although my divorce took a while to finish because of the scheduling backlog with the court and the fact that my ex-wife contested every single issue, James and his office fought on my behalf every step of the way. My ex would not settle at all, so our case went trial. At trial, I was impressed with James’ presentation of my case. His experience and confidence made him shine in the courtroom. Without a doubt, I was very pleased with his representation, as well as the outcome of my case. Thanks again, James and Karen! You guys are rock stars in my book.

James and his staff were truly great in my case. After being served with divorce papers, I began looking around for a reputable divorce lawyer to handle my case. I happened to come across James’ ad on the back of a city bus while stopped at a traffic light. I saw that he practiced family law, so I visited his website. After reading his bio on the firm’s website, I decided to schedule a consultation. Just prior to my consultation with James, I had met with two other well-known attorneys who were recommended by a colleague. However, I was very impressed with James and how knowledgeable he was about the law so I retained him. Throughout my divorce, James and his staff always kept me informed. With every office meeting and telephone call, my questions were always answered. He was upfront, honest and detailed in discussing with me all of the issues in my case. Bottom line, James’ level of professionalism, knowledge of the law, and commitment was top notch during my entire case. His staff was just as incredible. I don’t think you will find a better team anywhere.

I want to take this time to complement Mr. Cunha and his staff on the quality of work they performed in my divorce. I was referred to Mr. Cunha through a friend of mine. I was really impressed with Mr. Cunha and his staff and how they conducted themselves. That office is a workhorse...to say the least! They were very professional and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend him for any family law case.

Working with James Cunha and his staff was a wonderful experience. This was the first time I had to deal with a contract dispute with one of my clients. Prior to my initial consultation with James, I was very anxious due to my inexperience with this type of situation. After listening to my situation and seeing the evidence to back up my account, James was able to quickly assess the situation. He offered the best course of action and immediately eased my fears. James helped to end a bad situation with an unreasonable client.
Mr. Cunha and his staff were professional, knowledgeable and caring. I would not hesitate to refer him to my family, friends or anyone that is reading this review.

If you find yourself in trouble, this is the lawyer you want in your corner. James' extensive experience as a former Prosecutor in the State Attorney's Office puts him in the privileged position of knowing exactly how to articulate your best defense.

I was referred to Mr. Cunha by a trusted friend. From our first meeting, I was reassured that I could be defended and protected through the divorce process. All the way through, Mr. Cunha and his caring staff of professionals showed me respect and compassion. I was kept well informed at all times, and never felt that any question I had was insignificant. I respect Mr. Cunha's intelligence and admire his empathy. I appreciated his counsel and will be forever be grateful for him fighting so hard for my rights. Now I can secure a financial future for myself and my children.

I happened to meet Mr. Cunha by chance, when he came into my place of employment for his needs. I remember when he came in, down to earth, very friendly. I had a friend who was in need of a divorce attorney, I referred him to Mr. Cunha, before I even used him myself, based on my personal, first impression of him. He too, was satisfied with Mr. Cunha's services.
When it came time to me needing any attorney to help with my divorce, I called and asked for his help. We discussed a few things on the phone, and I went in for the initial consultation. I felt so comfortable, and I didn't rushed. He understood my concerns, filed all my paperwork promptly, made sure that I knew what I had to do, and what to expect next. (well, he couldn't aniticipate everything, but what would be typical, so to speak). Mr Cunha and Karen have kept me informed on the status of my case, and I never feel like I'm inconveniencing them, if I call in to ask questions. I've even had to call back the next day to get a "refresher" on what I was told the previous day. Dealing with my divorce, and having children involved is very stressful, but with Mr. Cunha on my side, him and Karen have lessened my stress level - thank goodness!!!
I will definitely refer any of my friends to Mr Cunha, should they need an attorney.
