James was fast and highly effective in getting our tenant evicted. We were at our wits' end having to deal with the most problem tenant ever. Then we found James Murtha. He was responsive and listened to our concerns. He was highly professional and we felt we were in good hands throughout the process. He was there for us when we needed him and he accomplished all of our goals in a very short time. We would definitely use him again and we recommend him highly.

My brother and I hired this man for my mother who has dementia. He would only talk with her even though we paid him. We told him she wasn't a reliable source of information but he would not listen. He did ultimately get the tenant out but it took much longer than proposed and I don't feel he did anything that we could not have done for free. The process is all online and the forms on the court website. He was rude, dismissive and expensive. I would not recommend him at all.

I hired James Murtha to evict my tenants from a home I own in Nassau County. Being a widow, and having had prior issues with my tenants, I anticipated I would have difficulties getting them to leave. This proved to be true. Even after being properly served - my tenants refused to leave and used every means to claim they had "rights" in order to stall their eviction. However, Mr. Murtha met them head on - even changing his approach while at court - that resulted in a stipulation of settlement signed by my tenants. If he had not done what he did at the time - my tenants - who knew how to work the system- would probably have been able to get the case delayed for another 2 or 3 months. I'm thankful I used Mr. Murtha to get these tenants removed from my property. He knows how to get the job done.

A shady debt collection law firm sued me but never served me the summons so they got a default judgment against me that I didnt know about until they tried to garnish my pay. James not only got the judgment thrown out he got the whole case dismissed. Price was very reasonable too. Great result. Thanks.

Murtha & Murtha represented me and my wife in a foreclosure. Thanks to James we were approved for modification and we sleep easy knowing that our home is ours. I highly recommend them.

James was fast, professional and thorough and my tenant was evicted faster than I could have hoped. He made me feel like I was in good hands and spent a lot of time explaining everything to me. I recommend this lawyer.

When I had trouble getting my pistol license b/c the PD was stalling and not approving me James successfully brought an artilce 78 lawsuit against them and get me my license. I totally recommend him and would use him again in a heartbeat.

Mr. Murtha was excellent. He talked with me and explained everything about my case for free, and when I decided to hire him to evict my tenant, the process server was there the next day serving him with papers! He always answered all of my questions, and was very responsive and professional the entire case. I would definitely use him again if I have anymore tenant problems. Thanks again!
