Peter James was extremely professional from the beginning until my case was settled. I interviewed a few different attorneys and Mr. James by far was the most patient and thorough in explaining to me the process. He never hesitated to answer all my questions and bring up any issues I should plan for before hiring him and his firm. Through the process of my case, he and his assistant were always responsive and the kind of service you would expect when hiring a law firm. You can feel comfortable working with Mr. James.
Peter provided me with the assurance I needed during the difficult divorce and child custody proceedings. All of my concerns were addressed in a timely fashion and I could not have asked for better service or outcome. My case had many twists and turns in dealing with the other half and he knew exactly how to properly navigate through the legal system in order to provide the best outcome not only for my but my children. I have always heard the horror stories about a divorce and the terrible outcomes, but he was able to put those fears aside and provided the guidance I needed to navigate this unpleasant time for my family. Thank you Peter and staff!
I have been working with Mr. James for over a year. He has by far exceeded all & any expectations in my case. He is very knowledgeable of the laws, he keeps me informed in a timely manner, & has responded to my many questions (no matter what). He is also very honest & doesn't sugar coat things (which I totally appreciate!). I appreciate his hardworking, professional, & easy going personality; which makes this very difficult time in my life seem possible. Everyone at the law firm is friendly, pleasant, & on top of things.
I have known Peter James for many years and I have refered him to my clients many times. In cases where people are not able to afford a lawyer he has gone out of his way to help them. He has even help with documents and advice to one of my clients who he said "she doesn't need me" because she had enough knowledge to do it on her own.He took the time out to help her and she was able to get custody rights back.He goes above and beyond any attorney that I have ever known. He helped with child support owed to me by my ex and has been helpful with any questions issues etc and is always there for me. He is well respected in the community. He is someone you can count on and trust. Debra
Peter is an excellent attorney. His knowledge is superb, ability to litigate is superior.
Peter first handled my divorce, which went as smooth as it could under the circumstances. Following that, there were several custody issues that arose due to my ex and Peter was able to successfully navigate those waters in an outstanding fashion.
Peter is and has been as solid as a rock in terms of his ability to meet the opposing party head on.
Though I hope I never have to, if needed I will call upon Peter again and again.
Mr. James has represented me through a long and difficult divorce/custody dispute lasting almost two years. In all that time, he never missed a deadline or an appearance. All work presented was professional, well researched and compelling to the Court. He is certainly a competent and knowledgeable attorney, but he is also approachable and easy to deal with from a client's perspective. His staff and colleagues are also very helpful and friendly. All things considered, his representation was a very pleasant surprise amid a very unpleasant time in my life. Family law matters are very important and stressful on a personal level. Get yourself a good lawyer like Mr. James to help you.
