HE WALKED ME THROUGH EVERY STEP OF THE DIVORCE AND TOLD ME HOW IT WORKED AND WHAT TO EXPECT AND STAYED IN CONTACT WITH ME TO LET ME KNOW WHAT WAS GOING ON . I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYBODY THAT NEEDED AN ATTORNEY.

Excellent lawyer to have represent you
I hired James to represent me in a child custody and support case. It ended up being probably one of the most stressful times in my life, but James was very upfront about the battle ahead and laid out all my options for me. I honesty felt like he cared about me and my child and was fighting for me every step of the way. He was very honest and efficient and kept me informed during the process. I got the outcome I wanted, and I hate to think where I would be if I hadn’t hired a great lawyer like James Downey. I highly recommend him for anyone with a family law matter. Thanks again James for everything
