Review James Quigley

    Hired attorney

    I hired James for my divorce. He was aggressive in the beginning but lost interest in my case when conflicting issues and ongoing problems arose with my ex. I also signed a binding custody agreement under his direction that I now terribly regret. Second opinions from established attorneys confirmed that the agreement was unfair and prejudiced against me. Top that with outrageous billing that included charges of $500/hour just to read emails. I do not recommend this attorney.

    James M. Quigley’s response: “Unfortunately, from time to time anonymous "reviews" are sent from unknown sources that can include opposing parties or even competitors, making it impossible to address vague reviews. The vast majority of reviews you will read about myself and my firm have clients that identify themselves in a way that I recognize the client and reflect their positive experience and results. That said, reviews like this can be used as a teaching moment. The unidentified "client" points out that he/she entered into a custody "agreement" and apparently now has buyers remorse. Did that person agree to the terms to avoid the tremendous cost of custody litigation? Did they agree because they did not present well to an elevator or child's representative and were at risk of getting a worse deal after an expensive trial? These are just some of the factors I present a client with in determining whether to settle or to litigate, but ultimately, as a client, it is your choice to make. What I do is I present the options, the costs associated with those options, and the risks/rewards of those options and make a recommendation. If a client chooses the costly approach of litigation they are doing so fully aware of what lies ahead and the team I assemble within my firm works hand in hand in developing and implementing a strategy to be successful in litigation despite the cost, and as such increase our chances of winning at trial. Divorce is an extremely emotional process. If you are uncertain as to a decision you are about to make, particularly one that has legal implications, feel free to seek a second opinion before making that "agreement."”

    Obtained Atty Quigley's expertise and his staff numerous times. We obtained what we had negotiated for through the court and by his expertise and the help of his staff. Atty Quigley is very professional and outlines exactly what he needs from his client. Sometimes the process takes a long time to accomplish which I wish was shorter. I would gladly request his help again if needed.

    I turned to James after it was my determined that my divorce - which should have been a fairly simple process - was indeed going to be a difficult mess instead. He stepped in effortlessly, and did an amazing job. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney in the courtroom. James's confidence and knowledge was priceless in my case.

    He was recommended by a friend. I hired him, but was very unhappy with the service I received. A failure to simply read what the opposing attorney wrote in the settlement agreement resulted in an incorrect evaluation of my income. He didn't return my calls. I had to hire a new attorney and return to court to correct it. Details matter!

    James is a FANTASIC attorney! After many hours of research, planning, collaborative discussion w/ me and the opposing counsel he was able to bring a satisfactory solution that supported my goals/objectives and was reasonable in terms of my family's needs. I would recommend him to anyone seeking support - from easy to complex family restructuring scenarios.

    I am a litigation partner in a national law firm, so I am a fairly sophisticated consumer of legal services. I can say without reservation that James is an excellent matrimonial attorney. He previously represented me in my divorce and more recently in my ex-wife's motion to increase child support and raise a cap on support that was negotiated in the marital settlement agreement. James successfully handled the matter in a highly competent and cost-effective manner. His knowledge of the law in the jurisdiction and specific experience before this particular judge proved to be invaluable. In sum, I was highly satisfied with the outstanding quality of the legal representation that I received, and I would highly recommend James for any divorce or post-decree matter in Chicago or the surrounding counties.

    Jim represented me during my divorce proceedings. He was a terrific advocate for me during that very trying period in my life. I found his counsel to be first-rate, as he blended his deep knowledge of divorce law, with "rubber-meets-the-road" practical advice on when and where to negotiate, and what the trade-offs might be in any given set of circumstances. I would recommend Jim without reservation.

    From the very beginning James was honest and upfront.
    He reviewed my case and told me what the outcome would be , even before going to trial.
    He explained how to minimize legal costs for me and my family.

    Finally James really had my children s interest in his heart.

    I have been divorced now for over 10 years and my kids are A+ students, and with Jim's hard work I was able to live a comfortable life.

    He's is the best.
