Best decision of my life
After splitting up with now my ex wife, I began looking for a "good" attorney. Naturally I searched the internet reading reviews etc. I decided by his great reviews that I wanted Liam Duffy to represent me. That was the absolute best decision of my life. I absolutely loved how Liam spoke to me man to man as though we were friends and having a conversation. He made me feel extremely comfortable, and always explained everything so it all made perfect sense. Liam pretty much put my ex's attorney to shame. It was quite awesome really, I would be lying if I said I wasn't grinning from ear to ear as Liam just shredded my ex's attorney. At one point my ex was trying to stop my daughter from coming with me on my appointed night, it was roughly 6 pm I made a phone call to Liam, he had my ex's attorney on the phone and literally within the hour my ex was dropping my daughter off at my home! Now how many attorneys will do that for ya at 6-7 pm in the evening? Liam got me full physical custody of my daughter and I didn't think it would be possible. I could go on and on about the things Liam did for me, I am so pleased. If you are looking for a top notch attorney that will not nickel and dime you, that is very fair on everything and will work with you every step of the way, then Liam Duffy is the attorney you want to represent you. I know every friend & Family member I have, knows about Liam and won't hesitate to retain his services in the future.

5STARS!!!
After 18 years of marriage, I had finally come to terms that we had hit a point of no return in our relationship and I was absolutely miserable, it was time to make changes and quickly. I knew I needed a great lawyer because my soon to be ex husband is a spiteful man plus I have 2 children, 2 dogs, and lots of questions and concerns so I reached out to google to start checking out my options. After a bunch of free uncomfortable consultation conversations with attorney’s and tons of emotions, I spoke to Liam Duffy. Our consultation was not rushed nor uncomfortable, he listened to me, answered my questions and advised me in how the process was about to unfold, maybe mother’s instinct but my gut told me that I could trust him and he had our best interest in mind. I am glad I listened to intuition because it was right ... every step in the process and/or crazy soon-to-be-ex-husband scenarios that needed immediate attention, Liam was just a call or email away and “had my back” I went to the firm’s office the other day to sign the final divorce papers, and FINALLY had the honor to meet Liam in person (since so many changes had to be made due to Covid and all of my battles were handled outside of the courtroom) and I must say he is just as awesome in person! To anyone who is reading this, I want you to know that I highly recommend Liam Duffy to represent you in all your unfortunate family matters. He is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and an all around genuine great guy whom you can trust to be on your side and get results! To Liam, thank you for all of your time, your patience, your support and encouragement, your wise and beneficial advise and favorable results. It has been a pleasure. To Pam and Stephanie, your assistance does not go unrecognized. Thank you ladies!

Explained an unclear lease
I needed some clarification on breaking a lease and Liam was extremely helpful. He was open and honest about what to expect in both the best case and worse case scenarios. He made me feel comfortable, and didn’t seem to mind a surplus of questions that could’ve probably been answered with a simple internet search on my own. While my issue was certainly not an earth shattering one, Liam still went out of his way to give advice, answer questions, draft up paperwork for my landlord, and made me feel like my concerns mattered.

Going through a divorce I chose Liam J. Duffy to represent My case. Very professional, sympathetic to My needs, responded in a timely manner with all questions I had.

Because of everyone's excellent attitude I am able to move on in My life. Thanks to All. Dan

Excellent Attorney!
Mr. Duffy is an excellent attorney that has represented me in a custody matter. Mr. Duffy has explained all the details and outcomes along the way no matter if it was what I wanted to hear or not. His no nonsense and down to earth approach has made my custody battle much easier for me. I highly recommend Liam for any family law issues. He truly is top notch.

Always a great experience!
Liam has helped me with various legal issues over the past few years including wills, deeds, and other assistance with legal matters. My experience with Liam is the best that I have ever had with any lawyer. He is organized, professional, and always has my best interests in mind. I also appreciate the fact that he comes off as a regular, everyday guy who listens to me and respects my wants and needs. I highly recommend!

Best attorney in Montgomery County
I hired Liam to represent me for both my custody case and divorce. I plan on having him do my will and estate plan. If you're looking for professional representation, you've found your guy. He's helped me stay sane through a 6 day custody trial and all the ancillary craziness that's been associated with my case. I've dealt with numerous attorneys on a variety of issues and, by and large, I've been disappointed. Whether it was because they weren't responsive to questions, made promises they couldn't deliver on, or were just late to important meetings - its left me with a dim view of the profession and those who practiced it. Liam has single-handedly restored my faith in the profession and all the good that attorneys can do. He gets back to me quickly when I have a question, he's early to every meeting, he's got a great staff supporting his efforts at RGSG, and most importantly, he knows his stuff. So stop looking and give him a call - he'll take care of you.

Dependable, Professional, Trustworthy
Liam Duffy was nothing short of amazing in every aspect of my divorce and PFA processes. My situation all the way around was stressful for me, to say the least. Liam's steadiness, knowledge and professionalism are what helped me to stay clear through the process. He's diligent and compassionate; a true "strong arm" that lit the way for me and yet also, handles opposing parties with posture and professionalism. He never made a move without my full understanding and approval of each step and handled himself with 100% professionalism (even when dealing with my stubbornness). :) Without a single doubt, I would not only hire Liam again but, would also very highly recommend him to anyone who has a Family Law issue. There's no one better that I could have asked for to handle my sensitive situation!

Honest and helpful, you won't find a better lawyer!
I recently found out that after three years of thinking I was divorced, I was missing a document and my divorce had not been finalized. I contacted Liam in a panic, since I was getting remarried in less than three weeks. He was practically a miracle worker! He was honest in his assessment of the situation, and had emailed me the documents that I needed before I even got in the door from my trip to the office. He was diligent with his follow up and keeping me in the know as to where I was in the process. With his help, I was able to have everything finalized withbtine to spare. He helped me through an extremely stressful situation, and never made me feel foolish for missing something so important. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

Terrific Attorney
My family hired Liam to handle a lawsuit against a headstone company to recover money that we paid for a product that was never delivered. Despite being only a small claims matter, Liam gave us, as well as our case, his full attention. He never let more than a day pass before responding to our messages and developed creative strategies that helped us obtain a favorable outcome at the least cost to us. Perhaps most importantly, Liam was supportive, patient, an attentive listener, and carefully explained his thoughts regarding our case and what we should expect going forward. In short, I would highly recommend Liam to anyone dealing with a legal matter.

Expert, Intelligent and Diligent. Won't find a better lawyer.
Unfortunately I ran into a deadbeat contractor who destroyed our house and disappeared. My wife and I were unexperienced and we unsure of our rights. Within minutes of speaking with Liam, he put us at ease and rattled off a number of things we could do to seek restitution. He represented us in court and the defendant didn't have a chance. Sadly, the defendant disappeared again but Liam has guided us through the very complex and overwhelming process of collecting our judgement. We know we are in great hands. I hope we never need legal counsel again but if we do, we will be hiring Mr. Duffy to represent us.

Extremely Thorough, Knowledgeable and Honest
This past year, Liam guided me through a very unsettling and stressful situation with my previous employer. From the start, Liam kept an open line of communication where I was able to discuss my situation and confide in him. He was very thorough in his response to my situation and made sure I understood all my options. Liam was able to successfully obtain the full amount of compensation I was due. I was very satisfied with the outcome and extremely thankful to have found a trustworthy lawyer, so I had Liam help me again. During my second experience with Liam, he maintained his honesty, detail-orientated nature and passion to help his clients. This situation was in regards to a business opportunity. He researched my questions and concerns and provided me with a detailed list of key items. Ultimately, I was able to make a sound decision that was in line with my personal, professional and financial goals. I recommend Liam to anyone looking for a lawyer and/or not satisfied with their current lawyer.

Diligent, Professional, Trustworthy, and Friendly the best lawyer you can have!
Liam Duffy helped me with the eviction of my very difficult tenants. Eviction can be extremely stressful and confusing for a landlord, but Liam guided me through the entire process. He made a difficult situation bearable. He helped me to get the results I wanted, and got my tenants out. He is a very patient and kind attorney, who constantly answered my questions and truly listened to me. He is attentive, reliable, and extremely trustworthy. He always made time to talk with me, and answered me promptly. Liam honestly has his clients best interest at heart, and cares about the outcome of the case. I highly recommend Liam Duffy, and definitely plan to use him again in the future.

Great service and honest
I took Mr. Duffy to a PFA hearing with me. He had the PFA against me dismissed. He was honest the whole time - I was really happy with his service.

Satisfied Tenant
Liam took a look at my housing lease for me when my landlord and I had a disagreement over making exterior improvements to the property. He was able to clearly translate the 'legal speak' in a way that was accessible without being condescending. Definitely seek him out. He was a very pleasant and knowledgeable guy to work with.

Smart, honest, great results
I worked with Liam Duffy for custody of my 2 kids and divorce from my ex wife. He listened to me and explained everything that was going on. I had a lawyer before who used to seem annoyed and rushed our meetings. Duffy didn't do that - he gave me as much time as I wanted and was HONEST and he answered all of my questions. He handled my case very good and he worked hard for me. I got as good of an outcome as I could get with my kids visitation and the divorce. I was very happy with him.

"As an attorney not licensed in PA, my family and I retained Liam to handle a small claims matter in Bryn Mawr. Liam was extremely professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. He developed creative legal strategies that produced a favorable outcome for my family when I started to believe that one was no longer attainable. In short, Liam provided a great example of how I believe all attorneys should conduct themselves when representing their clients and I wish we had more attorneys like Liam in upstate New York."
