    I hired James Cunha after paying another attorney a lot of money with little or no progress after 9 months. He settled my case to my satisfaction within 5 months. Mr. Cunha was honest and forthcoming with me and did not "nickel and dime" me to death. He is sharp and did not back down in the face of opposing counsel who tried to bully and drag the case out. If you need a creative attorney with a backbone, I highly recommend James Cunha.

    I had a consultation with Mr. Cunha after reading all of the positive reviews on him on this website and others. I went to him after hiring another attorney who wasn't helpful and I needed new representation. After meeting Mr. Cunha there wasn't a doubt in my mind that he was the right person to represent me. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made. He is extremely sharp, a good listener, compassionate, and so dedicated to his work. My situation was extremely complicated, and he worked diligently throughout the entire process to help me. He never lost his patience with me no matter how many questions I had. During such a difficult time in my life it really meant a lot to know that I had Hired an attorney I could trust like Mr. Cunha. I would recommend Mr. Cunha to anyone needing a divorce attorney without hesitation.

    While a divorce is never an easy process, Mr Cunha made it just that. Not only does he know the law, he listens, cares, and is compassionate. He does not back down (in fighting for you) even if you want to concede. He is patient in explaining the process and makes sure you fully understand before you leave his office. Also, his staff consisting of Louise Baker(Paralegal/Assistant) , is also very knowledgable, supportive, and kind. If you want to feel at ease during a very stressful time, please call upon James Cunha at The Law Offices of James Cunha. You will be glad you did. The BEST Divorce Attorney in South Florida.

    I hired Mr. Cunha to take over a very complicated custody case, after another attorney decided that she was not qualified to handle my case. It involved many complex issues, and it required intense negotiations with my ex husband's attorney. Mr. Cunha was able to resolve the issues without going to court, including a mutually agreed upon visitation schedule. His assistant, Tisha was always kind, and helpful, answering my questions, and making sure that she had Mr. Cunha call me immediately when she could not give me the answer. She encouraged me to call anytime. Everyone who works for him is completely professional and did everything they could to always keep me well informed. I spoke with Mr. Cunha several times a week during the time he was working on my case, and I was extremely happy with the outcome. I highly recommend him to anyone in the West Palm Beach area who needs an attorney who is an expert in the area of Custody/Divorce/Family Law.

    When I decided to get a divorce, I didn't want to just get any lawyer you find online. I asked around and ended up in a consultation with a lawyer in Broward County, he was highly recommended by a friend of a friend. Needless to say, I sat with him for 10 minutes and knew, he was not going to be my lawyer. I left frustrated and decided to read reviews of various divorce lawyers in Palm Beach. The reviews were not convincing until...I read all the great reviews of James Cunha. I had to meet him because I felt...too good to be true. Well, I'm writing this review so that you can stop looking and choose James as your lawyer. This morning my divorce was finalized and I'm so happy I chose James as my lawyer. From my first visit, I felt he was honest, empathetic, professional, trustworthy and very knowledgeable. I must also mention, every time I called the office, Louise would answer with her usual welcome and then say "Hi Luz, how are you doing?" always making me feel my calls were welcomed and important. Thanks, Louise for being so pleasant and genuinely concerned for me. I highly recommend James Cunha to anyone who needs a great lawyer. You will not be disappointed.

    I was trying to get a 50/50 shared custody for my only son; my first lawyer told me that was not possible. I later came to Mr. Cuhna and explain what I wanted and he advised on the best approach. He and his knowledgable and awesome staff treated me like family.
    They always kept me informed and responded promptly to my emails and phone calls. They genuinely care.
    Mr Cuhna knows his stuff and his trial experience was top notch. The judge granted what we've asked for in Mr. Cuhna's skillfully and detailed parenting plan.
    MR. CUHNA IS THE GO TO GUY WHEN IT COMES TO FAMILY LAW IN PALM BEACH!!!

    I cannot tell you how much James has helped us. It goes beyond the financial straights he helped us to get out of, but also psychologically and emotionally. For years I had been battling my former wife. And through it I had suffered loss after loss, and one impossible demand after another. On top of that, I had two previous attorneys who only helped to make things worse and get me deeper into debt. All of you living in Florida know that it is one of the toughest divorce states with a strong anti-father streak. I had given up. It seemed the system was against me. I was broke in pocket and in spirit. Then my wonderful wife found James. At this point I had little hope of change and a dim view of attorneys. Let me tell you: James changed all that. We won our first hearing with James. Then another. Ultimately, we won the big one which changed our lives and gave us hope again! James is NO ordinary attorney. Not only is he highly competent, skilled, and clever, but also a great human being. When he sees a genuine wrong, he will work for you, fight for you, and represent you like no one ever has. He will not talk to you with a high-and-mighty-professional-in-the-cloud-robotic tone. He will not keep you at a distance so he can drop you at an instant without thinking twice. He will not fleece you of thousands of dollars for worthless service. You are not just another client lost in the stack of paperwork on a desk. You are not a credit card number. He will tell you the truth and lay out all the cards plainly. I also lived out of state, so 99% of the time I worked with James on the phone. James’s staff is also great (Louise you are a darling!). What James has done for me and my family is beyond words. He treated me and my wife like family! It has been a few years after my divorce, but now I can say I actually feel like it. I can actually make a living now and move forward. Thank you James! Thank you so much! You are a great attorney, a wonderful human being, and a good man.

  • Finally we found him!

    After my husband had two extremely incompetent family law attorneys representing him, who made things worse instead of better and costing us a fortune, I decided to find him a new attorney. I found Mr. Cunha on avvo.com and the reviews about him convinced me to contact his office. Finally I got to talk to a human being who immediately understood our case. He was easy to talk to as well as very sympathetic. He knew what to do and instantly came up with a plan. Things looked really bad for my husband when we hired Mr. Cunha and he managed to turn things around by 180 degrees in one year. There was a lot of damage control which needed to be done and he stuck with us through those hard times. We finally managed to have child support modified to our favor. He is very competent and professional in court, he defended my husband and stood up for him like no other family law attorney ever did, cutting right to the point. He knows exactly what to expect in court and how to prepare. After a final judgement that nearly ruined our life and a very problematic and difficult ex-wife against us, he managed to help and get us the results that we desperately needed. Thank you James!! I’d say that he is the best Southern Florida family law attorney that you can possibly have on your side.
