Highly recommended
Mr. Tj and his staff are Great! Mr. Corcoran was a great lawyer for my divorce and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the law. Compared to other lawyers, he is different. He was kind, accommodating, and understanding. Very professional and provided an excellent service. If anyone needs legal help with divorce, I would recommend Tj Corcoran.

Highly recommended
I was referred to him by another attorney, he was very helpful and kind. He didn't hesitate to help me and without a ridiculous amount of money like many others. He started to work on my case immediately and within a few days he was finished and i was divorced.

My lawyer and his team
First, Mr. Corcoran spoke with me on the phone, he was direct and answered all my questions. If you want a soft gentle lawyer, than move on. I’m not saying he’s not caring, I’m saying he doesn’t play games. Second, his staff is amazing. I was able to gain an answer on any of my questions at anytime- even on the weekends. I had full access to my lawyer through email and phone. It was awesome. Third and lastly- my case was handled so well, and pain free- and professional, that if I were ever in need of a lawyer again, Mr. Corcoran would be the first person I would call.

Great experience
Unfortunately I was in need of an attorney to handle a divorce. Mr. Corcoran answered my initial phone call to his office personally and was able to answer all of my questions about what was needed and what to expect if I were to hire him. Other attorneys I called would not even answer simple questions without an office visit. I am now a single dad of two and the entire procedure was able to be handled over the phone or by email, with the exception of signatures, which was very convenient not having to arrange childcare or being the kids with me to the office. He had everything completed faster than I expected.

Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Corcoran recently brought our difficult paternity/custody case to a fair resolution for the child and both parents. In addition to being highly professional and knowledgeable about the law, we found him to be extremely approachable and responsive. The level of support was exceptional and included helping us connect with local resources. Highly recommended!

Best divorse/custody attorney
Mr. Tj Corcoran represented me in a divorce/custody case. Mr. Corcoran guided me every step of the way and definitely made the process less stressful. There were many obstacles in my particular case which Mr. Corcoran handled and even used some to our advantage. If I were to ever need to go through this process again there is no other attorney I would want to work with!

Excellent lawyer
I highly recommend TJ Corcoran. He got me divorce done quickly, at a reasonable price, and had excellent communication with me throughout the entire thing. Divorce is hard to deal with, but he helped make it go a lot smoother!

Mr. Corcoran was a blessing!
From the moment I first consulted with TJ, he was helpful and very honest. He took care of my case in less time than expected, and was able to help me work out all the details in between. Thank you, Mr. Corcoran!
