His work was outstanding!
My family and I were involved in a somewhat horrid case with my wife's ex. Mr. Jamieson and his staff were simply outstanding. They were honest, realistic, and always had the ability to calm our nerves when they were most frazzled. There was simply nothing that they were not forthcoming about. Moreover, they always provided us all of the information that we needed in the most timely manner imaginable. Their service was first class. Because we were out-of-town clients, they were willing to work with us over phone and on weekends when we could get into town. He suggested expert witnesses that truly helped our case. He also cared about the welfare of our child above all else. He also respected us, our opinions, and our needs. This was a non-traditional case, so his expertise was absolutely essential. He understood the need of our daughter, developmentally and otherwise. He also understood how to build a very complex case that demonstrated that justice was on our side. Rather than reducing a complex case to the "standard," he and his staff fought hard for us. Here is the best part: We won everything. His knowledge of case law, use of experts, and professionalism far exceeded that of opposing council. The truth of the matter is that he was simply better prepared and that the cost of that was worth the quality. He provided us with advice that we did not necessarily like and asked us to spend money on the places that were worth it. And the results were worth it! Really nice to have an honest, results-oriented attorney who treated our problem with the seriousness that it deserves! We will continue to use him and HIGHLY recommend him and his practice. His ability to demonstrate that an unconventional case deserved an unconventional judgement truly sold me (and the judge) on the quality of his practice. He has impacted our lives so much to the positive, I'd give him 6 stars if I could. Thank you!!!!!

Priceless guidance and support
I owe my peace to Mr. Jamieson. He masterfully crafted a Marital Settlement Agreement for me. This legal document served as a catalyst in opening the gates to real communication with my husband. I honestly don’t know where our paths may lead, but I do know I owe the progress we have made to the flawless implementation of the Collaborative Divorce principles Mr. Jamieson provided. His vast knowledge and experience in what is a relatively new approach are priceless. What would have cost me far more money, time and grief, resulted in an unexpectedly positive outcome – bonus! I am grateful to have found this law firm and recommend it without hesitation.

Not your average lawyer
We were so naive when we first entered the legal system. Fortunately Charlie knows what he is doing. He understands how things really work in the judicial system. We had other lawyers just take our money and tell us what we wanted to hear. Charlie's team thoroughly researched our legal situation and gave us the counsel we needed to make good decisions. If we ever have to go back into the legal system again, we want to have Charlie by our side.

Great experience
This was a second marriage for both of us. This was a mutually agreed upon divorce and I was so lucky to find Mr. Jamieson and his firm to represent me. We both wanted a quick and as uncomplicated as possible to avoid any ill will on either side. We had a very thorough pre nuptial agreement as well as binding property agreement regarding the disposition of the one asset we owned jointly. Mr. Jamieson came highly recommended by my Trust & Estates lawyer as an attorney who is even tempered and concerned first and foremost in the best interest of his client. The entire process took a little more than a month and we are both in a much better place for this reason. Mr. Jamieson is an excellent and very knowledgeable attorney when it comes to marital law. In addition, he and his entire staff at the firm were accessible, efficient, caring and concerned.

Parent Alienation
Mr Jamieson offered me a real world actionable step by step procedure to get my son back from brain washing grandparents. Mr Jamieson also gave me the motivation and confidence to do what I had to do to get my kid back. Mr. Jamieson even spoke to police officers on my behalf to remind them of my rights in a difficult situation. Mr. Jamieson understands parent / child alienation and has methods that my sound counter intuitive to the uninformed. I'm very happy with how effective Mr. Jamieson's help was. My son is permanently back home with me and doing great.

Highly Recommend!
Mr. Jamieson is an outstanding attorney who successfully guided me through a divorce. He is very knowledgeable of matrimonial law and I felt very comfortable having him represent me.

The BEST attorney to have on your side!!
My first impression when I met Mr. Jamieson, was that he was a fair and professional individual, and he lived up to my first impression. We had another attorney before we met CDJ and was more expensive and the results were nowhere near as positive. Attorney Jamieson works on your case as if he was representing his own family. He will even work on Sundays if need be to accommodate his client and or get you prepared for court. He is always a phone call away 24/7. I thank God for putting Mr.Jamieson on our case and pray that he will continue to bless him and his wonderful staff.

The BEST Family Attorney, Trustworthy and Dedicated!
I found myself unexpectedly in the situation of needing legal services. My first attorney was a personal friend and familiar with family law however was not comfortable with custody and false allegations of abuse. I contacted Mr. Jamieson and after our initial interview was fortunate to engage his services. After a very long battle with the Criminal, DCF and the Family courts I was victorious in winning sole custody of my 7 year old son. Initially I was forbidden to have any contact with my son for 6 months; Mr. Jamieson guided me through this very emotional and strenuous time. His professional and compassionate manner allowed me to stay focused on saving my son. Mr. Jamieson and his staff have a strong network of professionals that I was able to work with to better myself and the situation. Both him and his team were very approachable and went out of their way to assist whenever was necessary. With all the distractions from my former wife and DCF, he remained focused and was able to navigate through all the obstacles and continuous false allegations. After several years in the court system, I was awarded sole custody and my former wife was restricted to supervised visitation. The experience was very difficult and emotionally draining. Thanks to Mr. Jamieson I am a better person in the end and my son is thriving. If you are looking for the BEST, then you will be privileged and fortunate to know that Mr. Jamieson and his staff are on your side. No words could ever express my gratitude for finding Mr. Jamieson and having him in my life. Respectfully submitted, Dave

Gets the job done with compassion
Unfortunately or maybe fortunately I required the excellent services of Charles Jamieson and his staff for trial in settling my marital affairs. My experience and outcome was unparalled. Charles knows the intricacies of matrimonial law and helps you navigate these treacherous shark infested waters. He is there to guide you every step of the way. His knowledge of the law is amazing; his ability to apply it and remain level headed throughout the process while one often loses perspective during such an emotional time is to be commended. I highly recommend his services

Attorney YOU can TRUST
Mr. Jamieson and his staff helped me thru my lengthy and difficult child custody case. I am a single dad fighting an uphill battle to be able to be a part of my child's life. With Mr. Jamieson's professionalism and expertise my family was able to have peace of mind navigating thru the very complicated ins and out of the family court system. I lived and work over an hour from Mr. Jamieson's office, but would travel gladly knowing that my family's best interest was a priority and they truly and sincerely cared about the results. I was not just another case or customer. I highly recommend attorney Jamieson, to anyone who wants a "REAL PRO" on their side when it comes to defending your rights.

Best Collaborative Divorce Lawyer
Mr. Charles Jamieson is the best! With his help, my collaborative divorce was a very painless experience. I would recommend Mr. Jamieson to anyone who is searching for a marital and family law attorney in West Palm Beach. Thank you for everything.

Top Divorce Lawyer
Charles represented me in a lengthy, complicated, and very contested divorce action filed by my ex-wife who had extremely high expectations regarding the outcome. Notwithstanding the highly contested and conflicted litigation in this case, coupled with a change of judges in the midst of the process, Charles was able to keep the process moving forward, and remained focused on the important issues on our side of the case. He was not distracted by side issues and the dramatics presented by the other side. His intimate grasp of the inner workings of the court system, the economics of the situation, and the law as it applies to the unique venue of divorces makes him an invaluable advocate. I highly recommend Charles Jamieson as your divorce lawyer or to represent you in any family law matter that you may be confronting.

An Excellent and highly knowledgeable Lawyer
Prior to meeting Attorney Charles Jamieson, I worked with three lawyers who were unable to complete my case. Upon entering his office I knew that I was going to have a better experience. Attorney Jamieson took the time to explain what seemed to me, to be complex information. I also felt that he was able to stand up for me. In the end we ere able to carve out an agreement that I was able to live with. We have maintained our relationship since 2009. Michael Dunkley

Honest and professional
Mr. Jamieson and his staff members were always honest and professional. My case involved a child visitation request following a prolonged period of abandonment. Each step of the way, I felt I was welcome to contact the office at any time to have my questions answered. Every aspect of my case was handled with the mark of a true professional and the attention to detail is what ultimately led to the results I was seeking. Fees were very fair. I would definitely recommend.

Charlie Jamieson is an incredible lawyer with the highest of moral character.
Charlie worked with my family for 5 years on a very difficult and complicated legal battle. He fought for us when it wasn't a popular postion to put himself in and traveled week in and week out for weeks, months, and years to court fighting for our family's life and well being. He is the absolute best lawyer I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and we are blessed to have had him in our lives to fight for truth and justice.

Unfair
I hired him based on reviews. It was mistake. Very unfair work: 1.You will be over charged about 4 times of other attorney charge. 2. While high amount of prenup research fee was charged, preparing for validity was not necessary at all according to Mr. Jamieson himself. He said it will be decided by the judge  "Judge's mood of the day".3. After charged over $12,000 even before going to a mediation, Mr. Jamieson seems he started to study about my information the day before mediation. He supposed to have knowledge of amount equal to $12,000 but he requested not just update but most important information he should already have. Also important information were lost. Mr. Jamieson apologized me for paralegal's dispicable work- I should be reimbursed since he admits his fault. Two staff include one attorney quit only in a first few months. 4. Nothing timely: I was in need for urgent temporary support. Mr. Jamieson promised me to file for alimony and informed me that it will be in February but it was filed in the end of May. When I question, response are very late most time. I was shocked when husband attorney was trying to set the date for mediation, Mr. Jamieson's office did not inform me nor wrote husband side back for 13 days. There are tons more complaint about delay. They were even late for due dates for financial affidavit and extended 10 days after already 3 days late. I would not recommend this law office at all. I don't know why he has some good reviews-maybe his friends & family. I was warned by 2 attorneys his over charged work and trying to take time for anything include mediation to be able to charge. I terminated his service before hearing to ask a different attorney to continue.
