What a Great Human-Being, Besides Being a Great Lawyer!
James Lilly is by far the best lawyer for the job, with Matthew Karim. He handled my case with passion, deep dedication, profound knowledge, very competently and got the job extremely well-done. I am very grateful for the help I always receive from James. His service exceeded my expectations tremendously. At any time I needed James or Matthew, they were always available to help quickly and with a high level of professionalism. They are sharks! I HIGHLY recommend James Lilly and Matthew Karim for any family issues you have. In general, James Lilly is a man of his word and a great man overall!

SUPER LAWYERS, SUPER LAWYERS, SUPER LAWYERS
2 Years ago I was faced with one of the toughest situations I have had to walk through in life, which was an ugly custody situation that was impossible for me to expose alone! I came to AKesquire (Matthew, Alexander, & James). This was a time sensitive situation involving my then 2 year old son. The prompt actions of giving me advise on what I needed to do, filing emergency motions in court, and being legitimately concerned for my son's well being gave me the confirmation that I needed at that time to know everything was going to work out. Seeking out counsel is important when it comes to personal issues that arise in your life and without having a SUPER LAWYER to fight for you or your loved ones you are not going to end up with the base case scenario. If your looking for a lawyer that is going to go to bat for you and bring heat to the opposing party then give them a shot. by far best attorneys in or around the Broward County area and I am not throwing that out there lightly. I ended up with Full 100% Time Share, Full parental responsibility, Ordered Child support and most importantly I know my son is safe and being raised in a good environment.
