I was stuck with an attorney that I was extremely unhappy with. His bills were rich to say the least, he didn't return calls for many days, sometimes longer, seemed distracted when I finally did get an audience, and worst of all, was not a true advocate. He seemed to care more about getting out of my situation without making any waves and as a result convinced me cave from the start on points I told him I felt strongly about. I became exasperated in an already very stressful time.
I had a friend that was telling me she was having the exact opposite experience with her divorce attorney after having the same terrible experiences with her previous 2 attorneys. After making the change to Jamie, she felt a strong sense of relief.
I finally got to the point where I felt I needed to make the change as well. Suffice it to say, it was one of the best decisions of my adult life. Not having any experience in the divorce world, I relied heavily on Jamie for her advice and support, and from the start and she delivered. She was clear, concise and provided a thoughtful game plan that put my interests back on the table. She was extremely strong and firm when it came to any and all issues related to my children. She was very knowledgeable when we needed to decide how handle finances and assets. One of her most valuable skills to me was how she was able to promote my interests in but, at the same time, keep my expectations in check.
It was very stressful to even make the decision to switch but that change made all the difference with how my divorce turned out.
The icing on the cake was the way she handled her billing. She did not charge hourly so I felt comfortable to call, email or text (when urgent) whenever I felt I needed to without that nagging feeling that I was racking up the bill. Remarkably, she always responded on the same day.
I highly recommend Jamie and hope you don't have to suffer through others before you find her.

It is without reservation that I recommend Attorney James as counsel. Jamie Mauritz James is amazing. She works on a flat fee and makes herself available to her clients -no matter the time of day. She takes the pressure off of her clients being worried about the fees associated with the incidents and questions that arise throughout the process. Working with her to secure a future for my child and I proved to be a daunting process but it was with the advice, expertise and thoughtfulness of this woman that brought me through one of the most difficult battles of my life. I am, without a doubt, convinced that there is no one that could have handled it better. Jamie brought me through the process always with an eye on what was best for my child. Her professional nature and sincere concern for the emotional and financial wellbeing of my child was always her first concern. She solves problems, instead of causing more, by being reasonable and caring about the impact it has on the lives involved. She showed up prepared to win, her tactics were focused and fierce; based on experience and education. She was tough but she worked with compassion. She communicated effectively and worked in a timely manner. I always felt confident of her counsel and trusted her guidance. She was able to navigate my divorce and got me everything that I was looking for and then some. Jamie is well connected in the legal industry and respected by her peers. Jamie’s office staff is concerned and efficient. I always felt cared for and respected. Jamie brought humor and empathy to an arduous undertaking, and I will forever be grateful. *AFB

Jamie, Nick and Nichole are very good at what they do.
I ran into Nick while in court representing myself and fortunately for me I took his card and the rest is history.
Jamie is a very strong litigator. When she's by your side you feel a sense of comfort.
She doesn't forget a thing which is very impressive considering her case load.
Last thing I'd like to mention is If you're going through the divorce you know that it can be an emotional rollercoaster ride. The comfort I got was when I needed a question answered or just a boost to get me through was calling into and talking with Nichole. She was always consistent, kind and compassionate to the issues. That was huge for me.

I found Jamie on AVVO last spring when I was looking for a domestic relations attorney to represent me in my divorce and custody matter. Jamie had great reviews so I hired her - I am very glad I did. Jamie and her associate Nick Halks have guided me through this incredibly difficult process- they are very thorough and strategic. My divorce is not yet complete but, in less than a year, Jamie has persuaded the court to allow me to take my 7 year old daughter out-of-state to live with me - the top priority of my divorce case. I could not be happier and am very pleased to highly recommend Jamie and Nick!

Jamie James is a dedicated attorney who puts her heart and soul into every case she has. She is highly skilled in family law, an advocate for children and an expert in child custody matters. Jamie was not the first attorney I worked with during the divorce process. I had been misguided with bad legal advice from prior counsel. Jamie navigated through my divorce disaster and left me with a great outcome.
Nobody wins in divorce. It's a disgusting and emotional process. I felt like Jamie took me under her wing and helped me manage my drama, even if it was 10pm at night, weekends or holidays. You will not find another attorney as responsive or as emotionally invested in your divorce case as Jamie.
Jamie's entire staff is wonderful. Nichole and Deana are kind, knowledgeable and respond quickly to emails and phone calls. Nick Hawks is highly skilled in the courtroom. The Law Office of Jamie Mauritz James and Associates is an excellent law firm and I feel so grateful for their representation on my case. I have already recommended them to a friend.

I have been divorced for several years, but soon found myself in a legal battle again. This time, custody of my children who I adore was trying to be taken away for me. My previous lawyer, who I thought was excellent, was no longer practicing. I was recommended to Jamie James through a friend who had worked with her. During my initial consult, I could tell she was professional, experienced, very knowledgeable, and really seemed to care about her clients. As my battle progressed over a year and a half, I came to realize that Jamie becomes a friend. In fact, she became like my big sister looking out for me. I felt she always had my best interest at heart and what was important to me became beyond important to her. She works tirelessly to not only be prepared, but to excel. I mean working and preparing at all hours of the night. She is extremely personable, friendly, caring, and knows family law inside and out. Her staff is wonderful as well. I would not even consider going into a legal battle without her by my side representing me. Divorce and family issues can be a frightening and unknowing process, but with Jamie by my side, I could not have been more comfortable and in better hands.

Jamie James and Nick Halks became like family to me after representing me for nearly two years in a complex divorce/custody/removal case. It was a very high stress situation and I was not always the easiest client because of the pressure of it all. Sometimes I sent text messages to Jamie at 11:00 at night when a concern I had wouldn't let me sleep. She answered me right away almost always. If it wasn't an immediate response, I would hear back from her within a matter of hours. Jamie conducted the long trial and prevailed over a very reputable (and very expensive) attorney. Nick handled multiple court dates leading up to trial, was excellent, and also prevailed each time we went to court. I also need to compliment their paralegal, Nichole Medley. Nichole was amazing and worked so hard with Jamie and Nick on my case. I really appreciate how hard everyone worked, because it was certainly not easy. If you want a lawyer who actually cares about you and returns every call and email, hire this firm. I have to say one more thing and that is this: If you want a good judgment, be a good person. You can hire the number one lawyer in the business, but if you're guilty of being a bad parent or bad spouse, chances are the final judgment will not be in your favor.

I walked into Jamie's law office just about a year ago. Looking like and feeling like a deer in the headlights. I literally didn't know which end was up. My divorce had taken me by surprise, I had been married for 23 years -and apparently oblivious to . I needed the best legal representation I could find ( you find this out very quickly the first time you go to court). Thankfully I got the best representation with Jamie, Nick, Nichole. First the calmed me down, got me to focus and guided me through the process of the court system, judges, lawyers, custody and on and on. They got me out of the hole I was in and then to even ground then got me into a advantageous place. Jamie did this by focusing on a strategy and staying the course and never giving up. I have been to court more times then I can or want to remember. Each time gets a little easier because I trust Jamie and Nick . I knew/know everything would be ok. We "won" ( Nobody really wins anything in a divorce) all of the important matters. Don't get me wrong we took some hits as well but they turned out to be fairly minor in terms of importance. I feel incredibly fortunate to have Jamie James representing me. I have the utmost confidence that she and Nick and Nichole have my back. It also doesn't hurt that they are all incredibly likable people. If I had to do this all over again ( i pray I never have to) I would choose Jamie in an instant.
