Mr. Sexton is excellent at what he does. He is warm, compassionate, and most importantly knows and understands people. He knows when to interject during mediation and when to allow you to negotiate on your own. He is empahetic- he knows and appreciates how trying and difficult this processing is and can be. And he always acknowledged both sides of our point of view and made recommendations on each of our account. Without Mr. Sexton, we would without a doubt be in a nasty court battle. Look no further.

I had a consult with James Sexton on February 13th and felt he understood my needs as a client. He is very knowledgeable. I hired his firm on March 7th and am working with them on my existing case. I feel their knowledge of the law and experience with many marital and family law cases will best serve me at this time. I feel that i have hired a team to help make sure me and my children are properly represented.

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.

Jim helped me back in is early days as new attorney. He was thorough and took his time explaining things to me. I could not have survived my divorce without him. He has continued to help me over the years and I recommend him to everyone I know who could benefit from his expertise. I am currently working with Jim and he still makes time to explain everything thoroughly even when I am certain he has more pressing things he is working on. He is professional at all times, yet brings a sense of "normalcy" to your situation. You are not alone when working with Jim. He takes his job seriously and includes you in all decision making. Without hesitation I give Jim a rating of Excellent!

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.

James provided a courteous and professional consultation. He was helpful and thorough, as well as extraordinarily personable. I would recommend him to family and friends.

James Sexton was my divorce attorney in 2008, he was professional and fair and encouraged dignified and courteous exchanges with the opposite party. He was ready to battle if it was warranted but never pushed to make things more egregious.
I referred James Sexton many time since and my friends thank me for the referral. Nothing but stellar service!!!

Words can't express how pleased I am with the service that was provided to me by Jim Sexton. His team at the Law Offices of James J. Sexton were exceptional. I had the pleasure of working personally with Mr. Sexton, and I found him to be straight forward, honest, and compassionate. Anyone dealing with a situation like divorce and custody issues that requires an attorney knows how trying, nerve racking the process can be, but he was able to help keep my mind at ease at such a difficult and stressful time. He was a steadfast advocate for me in court and I’m very pleased with the outcome of my case. Professional, dedicated, and fierce are the words I would use to describe Mr. Sexton. I would highly recommend him to any of my loved ones.

I hired James Sexton for my child custody hearing and gave them a fixed budget (substantial) and they came back to me with a bill double the budget without advance notice. I paid it...based on false pretense from the kids mom I was accused of an infraction that was not true. I gain my custody back but was stuck with child support that was unwarranted and outlined in my divorce as agreed to be not included. Basically I got back what I already had a huge cost and on top of that child support. He is good at what he does but makes no apologies for over billing. When you call to discuss strategies, they won't talk to you with a retainer on file...despite a large sum already paid.

Sexton failed to represent me diligently. He lost my case at every opportunity. He compromised my situation and charged a small fortune to put me in a worse position. He is arrogant, spiteful and is super focused on how much he can bill me. His staff is super aggressive and care only about collecting money. He put me in a significantly worse position than before I worked with him. I would recommend using anyone else but him. Hard to believe his tactics are legal.
