Jim's firm represented me during my divorce. My divorce was one of the very few that go to a trial. While Jim did not represent me directly he was involved in all of the work and time that was put in to helping me get through it. Jim is a very kind, fair and responsive professional man. I have been a client of his fim since 2003 as my divorce was very contentious and involved. Jim and his staff treated me wonderfully; they were patient and supportive during a very difficult time in my life. Jim's firm represented me after the trial as unfortunately my situation warranted. With the kindness and support of Jim and his firm I was able to continue to work, live my life and single parent my two children over the past 9 years. I plan to stay in touch with Jim going forward and highly recommend him as a lawyer and his firm.

I enlisted the services of Attorney James Lynch in order to help me navigate a very difficult situation regarding the care of my ailing mother and the protection of those trusts (of which I was Co-Trustee) which had been set up to protect both my mother and her estate. At the time, two of my three siblings; one of whom was also a Co-Trustee; were quite literally stealing from my mother and through their deceitful maneuverings were attempting to force a dispersal of her estate far in advance of even knowing what my mother's expenses might be, and certainly without due regard for her well-being. When I first sat down with Attorney Lynch, I was struck by the fact that, while he listened carefully to my description of the situation, he did not take me just at my word, but instead asked all the insightful questions, then did his own investigation, and slowly but very surely became one of my greatest allies. His desire to verify the veracity of my story was and is something that I both greatly appreciate and respect. Soon thereafter, Attorney Lynch was able to implement certain safeguards so as to put a halt to the bleeding of the estate as well as force my siblings into a more forthright and prudent approach to my mother's care. Throughout the ensuing years, as my mother's health and mental acuity failed, Attorney Lynch was there to help me ensure both my mother's continued good care and protect her estate from the premature dissolution which my two siblings continued to maneuver for. His knowledge and understanding of the law and his facility with the legal landscape was nothing short of impressive; but even more than that, his insightfulness and his clarity of thought were a supreme comfort to me. He gained my complete confidence and proved to be a most steadying hand through a very, very, trying period. He was always quick to respond and never failed to provide wisdom; truly what 'counsel' is meant to be. He has my respect and my undying gratitude.

Jim helped me several years ago prepare for a dispute and attend a hearing with the Massachusetts Department of Employment when I owned my own business.
After working with him and seeing his professionalism, I subsequently referred my mother to him. She needed help in addressing a number of legal issues after she was diagnosed with a terminal illness. He asked both of us pertinent questions, helped formulate a strategy and then executed his part of the strategies flawlessly. Especially in the case of my mother, he not only displayed the legal expertise to effectively solve the problem, but displayed sensitivity, understanding and human qualities that very few people have.
I have referred a number of people to him since, generally people getting divorced. The feedback is always the same â€“ â€œWhere did you find him? He was great! â€œ
If I sound like a fan, it is because I am. "Integrity" is the word that always comes to mind when I think of dealing with him. My mother was a tough critic but couldn't say enough positive things about this man, both in terms of what he helped her accomplish and who he was as a person. Not an easy thing if you knew my mother.
I can't say enough good things. I HIGHLY recommend him!
