When I had to file for my divorce I didn't know where to start. Finding a reliable, honest and dedicated attorney is not an easy task. The process itself can be as tiresome, complicated and confusing. James Sexton put my mind at ease by clearly explaining my options and providing sound legal advice on how to proceed—always mindful of the children involved. I felt from the very first meeting with him that he wanted to protect me as his client and defend my rights. He took the time to listen to all my concerns and provided honest, straightforward answers. He explained to me the things that could go wrong and the things that could go right. James did everything in his power to complete my case with the sole purpose of saving me as much money as possible and making sure I would be happy with the outcome.

James Sexton is a mensch in the street and a pitbull in the court. My family would not have survived without his thorough, tenacious professionalism.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Jim Sexton is one of the most aggressive, well prepared, zealous advocates that I have encountered in the Courtroom. As a fellow attorney, I can also say that Jim will always demonstrate the highest level of ethics and decorum even while fighting tooth and nail to advance his client’s goal. For these reasons, I endorse him without reservation.
