    • I recommend James Hornsey.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    James Hornsey represented me in my divorce and he was extremely knowledgeable. I honestly would be very afraid to be on the team opposing him, since he is seriously tough as nails when it comes to knowing the law and defending your rights. I was amazed, just when I thought he had pulled out all of his cards in our case, he pulled out even more and it was just a wipeout for the other side and their lies and things they had pulled. I thank God I had his as my attorney or things would not have been so great for me since the other side was playing not-so-nice.

    • I recommend James Hornsey.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    James represented me through my ongoing divorce. He was honest and upfront - discussing my options and reviewing information I had provided, as well as explaining what might be the best course of action, and why. As my case drew out (as circumstances do happen), he re-assessed and adjusted as necessary. I received more than I initially requested in the final settlement. I would not hesitate to recommend James Hornsey to my friends.

    • I do not recommend James Hornsey.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Child Custody matter.

    He gave my ex everything he asked for, didn't even try to defend me. He settled out of court, without my permission, with the opposing lawyer. Then he had the nerve to come and lecture me on his personal beliefs of how he would feel if he were the other guy. Boo hoo , not sure whose lawyer he was, but I can assure you that he wasn't working for me! Paid in advance, don't do that, he stops working for you!!

      Lawyer Comment:

      Ethical and professional rules of conduct limit what I can and should say in responding to a negative review like this. I can, however, say that I am absolutely unaware of any former client of mine having voiced these types of concerns before and that if the person who left this will contact me directly I'd gladly see if we can determine if there was some misunderstanding about the outcome of your case and the manner in which my services were provided. To others reading this, I would point out that my standard client agreement indicates that I will take no action to dispose of or settle your case without your advance knowledge and approval and that I do sometimes try to get my clients to see the viewpoints of the opposing party so as determine what he or she finds important and so we can consider those issues in settlement discussions and trial preparation. I've had hundreds if not a thousand or more clients and while some of them may have been unhappy with the outcome of their individual matters I think I can safely say they'd each tell you I worked hard for them up to and though the end of their respective cases.
