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.

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.

I can't express with words what Mr Cunha had done for my family! I found him online with the best ratings and it was the best decision ever. We needed an attorney in WPB even though we don't live there, my little cousin was never returned to the mother after going on vacation there with his father! Mr Cunha explained to us how exactly things were going to be done and all the pros and cons and gave us always a sincere, professional and truthful answer. Worked around our schedules, was always available by phone, email, fax, text anytime we needed him. His staff was always courteous and knowledgeable and a phone call away. Our case was mostly over the phone, long distance but we never felt distant or ignored. Mr Cunha promised to returned the child home and after a year and many dirty tricks from the father and his unprofessional attorney we were able to see my little cousin again! James made us part of every single detail of the process no matter holiday, weekend or after hours! We were able to get everything we wanted and needed for the child's well been and all because we hired the most intelligent, smart, humane and dedicated man I've had the honor to meet in my life. Thanks James from my family to yours; welcome to our family and God Bless You!

I hired Mr. Cunha to handle my Child Support Case which was very complex.
Mr.Cunha did a great job for me. He is Very Professional, Extremely Knowledgeable, and great to work with. I didn't feel intimidated talking to him like a lot of lawyers. Easy to talk to and a great listener. He will actually listens to your anger but will not give you a misleading answer. He will always give you and answer that he thinks the judge will give you but has a remarkable approach to each issue.
We won 4 out of 5 of the issue we were dealing with and I settled on the 5th issue which was in my favor. I couldn't have been happier with the outcome of everything he handled.
We are all worried about running up Attorney Fee's. I was very impressed with the way he handled keeping the cost down which was one of my main concerns in hiring such a great attorney. The office actually explained to me how to keep cost down. This was extremely helpful.
I have worked with Mr. Cunha for the past year and will have him handle all my needs in the future not to mention he has become a great friend as well since working with him.
Thank You James, I appreciate your hard work. Its been a pleasure working with you.

From the first consultation I knew that Mr. Cunha was the advocate I needed. He was responsive, precise, kept me informed, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable of the law. Divorce is an overwhelming and emotional process. Mr. Cunha and his team of professionals were exceptional in handling every detail so that I could focus on my children and rebuilding our lives. I cannot express how pleased I am with his performance and how grateful I am to have had him represent me. I confidently recommend Mr. Cunha to anyone seeking legal representation.

I am currently a client of Mr. James S. Cunha, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a divorce /separation attorney. I was looking for a good lawyer not only to handle my divorce, but fight for me to have equal rights for the custody/time-sharing of my son. After extensive searching and reviewing online, I found Mr. James Cunha. I decided to make an appointment for a consultation. During this consultation, the entire staff was friendly, personal, and courteous. James was completely fair in pricing, knowledgeable, and professional. He was very detailed and explained how the process would go, about the length of time to complete the divorce, and also talked about how to get time-sharing of my son.
During this process, James and his staff has kept me informed through email, phone calls, and appointments. If I had any questions James and his staff was only a phone call away. We went to mediation, and he managed to get me everything I could have asked for. This process could have been very stressful and painful; however, James made things flow with ease and without hassle.
Overall, his performance was excellent and over exceeded my expectations. As a father I am blessed to have such an understanding attorney, and I am forever grateful for what he has done for me and my son.

I highly recommend Mr James Cunha to anyone who needs a divorce lawyer. He is fair, honest, and knowledgeable. I am still very impressed with all the many extra hours James put in after the Marriage Settlement Agreement was signed. The opposing side filed many motions which the Judge eventually denied. Mr Cunha did not charge me for all the hours he spent to respond to the added litigation and to attend the court hearings. I plan on using his services when I file for full custody of my son. Thank you again, James.

I am so grateful for Mr. Cunha and his staff, especially Karen Garrison his Office Administrator. She has helped me throughout my separation, divorce and custody issues. She is genuinely empathetic and always greets me with, "How are the kids doing?" She has been a wealth of information about resources available to me. She recommended that I look into Workforce Solutions, who are now paying for my classes at Indian River State College. She also advised me to explore Early Learning Coalition; they are helping me pay for afterschool care and summer camp so that I can work and go to school knowing that my child is safe. She recently helped me through the confusing State Disbursement Unit when two months of alimony payments went missing due to a "processing error". Karen always returns my calls and e-mails promptly, and has been so generous to me with her words of encouragement. She has so much faith in me and my potential. I do not know how I would have gone through this most difficult life experience without her in my corner. I am so thankful to Mr. Cunha for hiring such a dedicated professional.
