About James

Learn James’s areas of practice.

My practice is focused on divorce and family law related matters in Wake County.  I approach each case with the goal of helping my client reach a satisfactory resolution in the most efficient and least stressful manner possible.  Whether it is an uncontested divorce, drafting a prenuptial agreement or a separation agreement, negotiating, mediating, or litigating, that goal remains the same.  Many of the cases I handle settle.  Settlement is by far the most efficient and least stressful way to resolve legal matters.  As I tell clients, we can only control our side of the case and, therefore, when settlement is possible, I will work equally hard to litigate their case.

James helped a lot
James picked up my case from another lawyer, who was waisting money without result. He were able to help me thru a very hard divorce situation with minimum time and money. He listens and he does the job, great experience.

Great divorce lawyer
I had a need to consult with an experienced divorce lawyer over a holiday weekend and James was the only one that took the time out of his schedule to return my call and set up an appointment. After meeting with him I knew he would represent me well, have my best interests at heart, and guide me through a contentious divorce. When division of assets became very challenging, he reminded me of my options and to focus on what I wanted to do. James helped me through a challenging divorce and was a pleasure to work with. He was always on time and answered any questions I had in a timely manner. I recommend consulting with and hiring James if anyone is in need of an experienced divorce lawyer in the area.

Worry Free divorce
After battling with my ex-wife's lawyer in New York ( who I paid over $1700 to) for over 2 years, my divorce was completed by Mr Brooks in a matter of 45 days. He was honest and upfront about the procedure and costs, and always kept me updated along the way. "Great Doing business with you"

Overdue divorce
I was married in 1996 for about 6 months , I was young / naive and getting divorced was not upmost important , He moved far away ,when IRS let me know he started filing jointly using my info, I knew it was time , 19 years later , I hired Mr Brooks after much deliberation, He answered all of my questions and showed no judgement of my situation , He was able to get papers signed for me , I am happily divorced now and my man of 10 years is no longer angry that I'm married , I will use Mr Brooks going forward for any legal matters that may arise , possibly a prenup , his rate was reasonable

Excellent
James and his firm were fantastic to work with. He was prompt, courteous, and answered all the questions I had in a timely manner. He was thorough and concise and made an otherwise somewhat painful process easy to deal with. I would strongly recommend him.

James Tyler Brooks Review
James did a great job in handling my complicated divorce. He handled the complications quickly and smoothly. He always got back to me very quickly with any questions I had. When I thought I hit a roadblock he assured me we would continue through until the divorce was finalized and it was done in the short amount of time that he said it would. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking help with their Divorce.

Smooth and Painless
I hired the good counselor Brooks to execute my Divorce based on my needs and cost constraints. He was happy to provide the services needed at the custom level I required. As always, I was ready to defend my wallet against an onslaught of adders this and add that. I was shocked and thrilled that I did not need to do this and we came to an agreement to his role and price in short order. Counselor Brooks stuck to his price even though my spouse was difficult and time consuming. I was extremely impressed with his smooth execution and how he simplified the process. I would highly recommend James Tyler Brooks to assist you with your Divorce. Bruce S.

Knowledgable, Realistic, Spot On
James worked my divorce case and what I liked and appreciated about him was his candid, no fluff straight forward approach. From the beginning he went over my case and set realistic expectations, costs and likely outcomes. One of the most important aspects of James is his confidence in what he counsels you on which enabled us to move forward with making informed and strategic decisions that ended up with a positive outcome. In my opinion you will be in good hands with James.
