    • I recommend James Gillen.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    James handled a complex child custody jury trial. He was excellent in keeping us informed of every thing that was happening ( explaining it so we understood ). The opposing attorney was a very aggresive somewhat known but James far surpassed him with his professionalism, calmness and being prepared. He is top notch. If ever in need of legal services he is the man to contact.

    • I recommend James Gillen.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I was looking for a former partner when I contacted James to handle my divorce. The initial consultation was very informative and I instantly felt comfortable and confident that James could handle the case. James was very informative and always kept me "in the loop". Although most contact was done via e-mail (which was fine with me), he was also readily available when I needed to speak with him. I would definitely recommend his services to others.
