Outstanding experience with Mr. Quigley. Very down to earth person who listens to his clients needs. Excellent knowledge of the law, and really works to strike a chord of fairness for both parties. Would rather be practical and resolve issues between the parties, but will fight if necessary.

Before I met with Mr. Quigley; I was nervous, lacking confidence and direction regarding divorce and all that comes with it. Mr. Quigley listened to me intently, and assured me, that I would have equal or more time with my son, wouldn't have to pay my ex anything and things would be favorable for me. My divorce was finalized April of this year and everything Mr. Quigley said would happen, did happen!! They are professional, astute, experienced, wise and always, always, always, prepared. They kept their word! Thanks Mr. Quigley!!!

In the North Shore family law community of “good old boys” bereft with Porsches and Corvettes, James is a proven family lawyer and challenger who really fights only the good fight for the client’s benefit in your family’s best interests – not for fight’s sake or to run up your legal bills with triple billing like other North Shore divorce law firms do – while being a tough negotiator and litigator. I knew within 10 minutes of interviewing James that he was the Doberman I wanted in my corner protecting my family and switched to Beermann North Shore.
James and the Beermann Pritikin Mirabelli Swerdlove team did a fantastic job advocating for my kids and I; applying the law; and putting on a great case at trial in my divorce. They treated me with absolute respect, humanity and dignity everyday especially as a late-deafened mom of 2 young kids and who supported my CEO type husband and our family.
James fought hard like a pitbull and Doberman while being honest about what was worth fighting for and never overbilling me. His compassion and understanding of the pain that divorce causes children and families and made it easier for us. James and his firm are truly one of the best kept secrets on the North Shore, Lake County and Chicago. Since my ex hired 1 of the big 2 North Shore divorce firms that everyone uses up here, I initially hired the other firm who billed over-the-top high and would not let me question their bills. My husband’s firm said I faked deafness and did not need ADA accommodations in court to hear what was going on. I switched to James, Jared and the Beermann Pritikin Mirabelli Swerdlove team. I wish I had hired James 1st as they are truly the best. In addition to their downtown Chicago office, Beermann just opened their full-service North Shore office offering family and business law services in a discreet and convenient location at SE corner of Highway 94 and Half Day Road in Bannockburn.

My brother started divorce proceedings four years ago. As this progressed, I became more involved in the actual logistics of the case and how it developed. He had four different lawyers representing him during that time, who could not help him through this process. Luckily we found Mr. Quigley's law firm. We were immediately impressed with the professionalism and empathy that he showed. He was very clear in his communication and kept us informed as to the plan of action and any changes or developments as things progressed. His team was also professional, and very personable. They worked with us to get everything done in a timely, cost efficient manner. We felt well prepared and confident that we knew everything that was going on. I cannot recommend Mr. Quigley and his team strongly enough--My brother is now divorced!!!!!

He was highly recommended by a friend. He was very friendly in initial consult. I felt comfortable hiring him. However the problems began in the negotiations with the other attorney where there was a complete lack of attention to detail. Not being knowledgeable in legal matters I followed his advise. The case was settled as most are. Now I find that I have to hire another attorney to fix the JPA's many errors. I became obvious to me now that the JPA was an expensive but bad cut and past job. There were even things that Mr. Quigley/staff put in that benefited my ex.

At the time I filed my divorce, I had been employed in the legal arena for 15+ years, so I had an expectation of my how attorney would behave, communicate and interact. The first attorney I engaged was of the mindset "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" which is sometimes otherwise known as "the boys' club". As soon as this became evident to me I sought out a new attorney as I was not looking to partake in this type of behavior which I knew would not serve the best interests of my children or myself, either financially or emotionally.
At this time I engaged Attorney Quigley, who handled the remainder of my divorce proceeding. I met Attorney Quigley initially for an hour consultation. He was timely, very professional and inquisitive about the facts of my current situation, including my minor children (then ages 6 and 4) and whether they had their own attorney. At the time they did not, and Attorney Quigley insisted that engaging an attorney for them was critical. Attorney Quigley's understanding of custody issues and his recommendation to engage an attorney for the children was instrumental in keeping the divorce proceeding moving forward.
Throughout the entire process Attorney Quigley was proactive (not reactive), professional, timely, actively listened to my concerns, receptive to my ideas and solutions, especially with regard to parenting issues, and advised of both realistic and legal ramifications.
Subsequent to the conclusion of my divorce, I have referred several friends and co-workers to Attorney Quigley and will continue to do so.

Two miracles happened last week. George Clooney got engaged and James Quigley was able to get me divorced. James and his partner Shana Vitek did in two months what no attorney could do in three years. I have been separated for three years. My ex-husband changed legal teams three times. The final team was cut throat and out to "squash" me as my ex-husband told me. It was then that I hired James to advocate for me. He was extremely compassionate to my cause. He was able to get me an excellent settlement within two months. I highly recommend him.

James was very responsive to emails and calls from me about my case. The advise I got from James was dead on. I would recommend him for any family law case, he knows his stuff inside and out.
