I couldn't have asked for a better attorney for my divorce case. Jim took the time to understand how much my marriage meant to me, and how reluctant I was to proceed with a divorce. In fact, it was over a year between when I first contacted Jim, to when we filed the paperwork. At such a sensitive time, it was helpful to know Jim cared, and treated me like a human being, not just a legal case.
Also, being sensitive to my financial situation, Jim strongly encouraged mediation, instead of the more costly option of going to court. He recommended an excellent mediator, who was instrumental in helping us settle. Clearly, if Jim was mainly interested in making money, he would not have encouraged mediation.
Jim is a consummate professional, who excels at strategy and execution. He analyzes situations quickly, provides excellent counsel and practical next steps. Jim is attentive to detail, and responds quickly to emails and phone calls. He remained composed and respectful, even when his adversary did not.
I am so grateful for Jim's personal advice, particularly when he told me to stop allowing my husband to “bully” me. This allowed me to finally stand up to my husband, truly for the very first time. Jim timed his counsel perfectly, at a pivotal moment in the negotiations, resulting in me getting more than I had expected.
I would recommend Jim most highly to anyone, without reservation.

After my first meeting with Mr. Moloughney I knew he was the one to handle my divorce. He explained in detail what my options were and the costs involved. He was very patient while answering my numerous questions. He explained in detail the benefits with mediation. I went with this process to end my 36 year marriage since I did not want to go back & fourth through the court system. I never had a problem getting in touch with him either by phone or email. From start to finish the entire process took 6 months. The only regret that I have is that I did not do this sooner. I highly recommend Mr. Moloughney.

I would highly recommend James Moloughney. He was considerate, caring and was great at guiding me through an emotionally tough relocation case. I trusted his judgment and was able to rely on him throughout the whole process. I will definitely refer him to all my friends and family. Couldn't have found a better lawyer to represent me.
