Experienced Divorce and Custody Lawyer
John Tilley helped me obtain custody of my children. He is knowledgeable and well respected by the judges. He always returned my phone calls promptly and showed genuine concern for my case throughout my divorce from my wife. He effectively defended me in Court against numerous false accusations made by my wife. I was able to keep the house and and enjoy an uninterrupted relationship with my kids.
