I retained Joe at the very end of my case. My attorney before him made a mess out of what should have been a winning case. Joe came in with only a few days to prepare, and created the best possible outcome of my divorce - which is finally finished.
He listened to my concerns, prepared like pro, communicated clearly what he needed from me (documents), then used that information to negotiate effectively.
In the final day of my case, I won everything I could have. He made me feel hopeful before the day of trial, while also being straightforward about what realistically likely happen. He was able to use evidence to my benefit to avoid trial (trials are ridiculously expensive). And he delivered a MUCH a better result than I thought possible.
Joe is sharp as a tack, compassionate and really cares about helping. He is conscious of the expenses involved, and works hard to thoroughly and passionately attain the best result for his client, without wasting your time or resources (like my former attorney did). He wont nickel am down dime you to the brink of bankruptcy, like so many attorneys do. If you want a skilled and brilliant attorney, you should already be expecting to drop some coin. But his rates are more than fair for the quality representation you will get (aka he's worth every dime, and then some). If your resources are limited, borrow the money to hire Joe, instead of someone more expensive who won't get the results you need. You won't regret it.
He's respected in the legal community and well-liked by other attorneys and judges. (He knows the temperament of judges, and knows what to expect from them.) It helps immensely when negotiating the terms of your case. His common sense approach to solving problems is easier to understand for the client, but is also well beyond a level in law that I could muster. Hire Joe if you want to win. Don't wait. Don't give a different attorney a "chance". An incompetent lawyer will damage your case. Joe is the opposite. He communicates in whatever medium you find most comfortable (phone, email, even a bit of texting!) He's flexible, and accessible. He cares. Don't miss the opportunity to hire Joe. He will be straight forward with you, and speaks in a way you can absorb the most information and make your decisions accordingly. Joe knows the law. But he is not an arrogant know-it-all like so may attorneys are. He listens, he empathizes with people. He's talented at observing others needs, wants, and also is highly intuitive. He'll know if your opposition is being dishonest, and he will strategize (with you) to expose that. Liked and respected by judges, attorneys and clients. I believe that Joe is going places! Hire him now before he probably moves on to becoming a judge!
I would never deal with another attorney for family law issues - which are likely to materialize in my future. The case is settled, but he's already thinking ahead about ways to improve my situation. He cares and will work hard and brilliantly for you. Hire him and take his advice. He knows what he's doing. He's among the best of the best! I feel blessed to have him on my team, and only regret not hiring him much sooner. Don't lose any time. Consult with him now!

Joe represented me in a divorce case. He was excellent, always communicating with me the status of the case. He was always available and followed through. What I really liked working with him was that I felt that I was working with an individual and not a big law firm. He knew all the intricacies of the case and he was respectful to my spouse. We were able to resolve the case cordially.

Joe represented me in a divorce case. He was super helpful throughout. It was not the most straight forward divorce-there were some unfortunate events along the way with the other party's approach and representation. Joe was patient and knowledgeable. I was extremely happy to have Joe on my side.

Listen...Divorce sucks. It symbolizes something terrible...the ending of a relationship. That in and of itself is tragic enough. Then, because it's a legally binding contract, it brings fourth many more things that make it so much worse. Yet, from the very moment I met with Joe, I knew he was the right choice to handle my divorce. What should have been a pretty simple divorce (no kids or shared assets) was anything but. Yet, Joe handled it professionally at ever turn. Even having to deal with my hysterical rants (sorry about that Joe), he always remained with his head in the game and found a way to ease my frustrations and concerns. I honestly cannot think of anything that he could have done differently or better with regards to my case.

My colleagues highly recommended that I hire Mr. O'Brien to represent me in my divorce and I quickly came to know why. He was a strong advocate and readily available throughout the entire process. I was extremely pleased with my outcome and would recommend his services to anyone in need of a solid family law attorney.

Joe was very professional throughout my entire experience. He took my case very seriously and always had my back. I felt very comfortable with his services and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for the best. I was impressed every step of the way. I could go on and on with things to say about Joe. The bottom line is he is leaps and bounds ahead of the competition. I can't think him and his team enough.

I had already been in a very difficult position and spent the last 6 years in a nasty custody battle when I first contacted Joe O'Brien. I explained to him my situation and he immediately took on my case, when plenty of other attorneys had recently told me it was a losing case, and they wouldn't accept me as a client. I knew it wasn't a losing case. I cannot put into words the helpless position I felt I was in. Countless court dates and continuances for over half a decade with 3 prior attorneys, 4 different judges, countless funds thrown out the window, and still things were looking as bleak as ever, I felt I had gotten nowhere. Then I contacted Joe O'Brien and after 3 consecutive successful court dates in a row later, with Joe as my attorney, I had reached my goal in a fraction of the time it had already taken. He knows the system, he knows what may come up and prepares you for it, and he knows as a parent himself how important this all was to me. I very highly recommend his services, he is a great guy and a great lawyer.

I was referred to Joe by two of my family members who at the time had been using his services and highly recommended that I reach out to him in regards to my own need of legal council. After all has been said and done, I'm definitely happy I did because he couldn't have done a better job in getting my divorce finalized in such a short period of time. He kept me in the loop throughout the entire process and was always very professional, keeping my best interests in mind. After all is said and done I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer they could trust and someone they can count on to get the job done. Thank you again Joe for all of your help. I very much appreciate everything.

Joe is a great attorney. Besides an attorney, he is a regular guy and a family man that understands your needs when you consult with him, he is honest, knowledgeable, and very professional. When he is in court, he is a machine. Nothing gets past him. Detail oriented and very impressive. He really knows his stuff and is a great trial attorney! He really cares about his clients and the result of your case shows his passion for his profession. He did an outstanding job for me which wasn't a simple everyday divorce case. I was very pleased in the way he handled it from beginning to end and the office staff is outstanding. They are always available for you and very accommidating. Joe never leaves you hanging and unsure in any way. Joe Obrien is well recognized and respected by his peers. The reason is he's just a straight shooter that delivers results. Just a damn good attorney and not to mention very reasonable as far as his fees. You get way more than you pay for when you hire Joe Obrien and walk away with piece of mind!

I hired Joe after looking at reviews on AVVO and he met beyond my expectations. My case was really complex. There were lot of aspects of the settlement that me and my Ex was not agreeing to…which end up with lot of dispositions of different family members. My Ex started sending lot of subpoenas to my banks, credit card companies, My work and it was really stressful and at one time I just wanted to agree on everything she wanted but Joe helped me a lot on dealing with all the issues and we fought really well in the court with all the things she was coming up with. My case went on for 2 years because of one of the lawyer I hired before Joe was very greedy and he tried to make my case more complex and top of that he didn’t know what he was doing. Once he was trying to do child support calculation worksheet and couldn’t do it. That point of time I realize he is useless. I don’t know how these kind a people can just become lawyers. So after 16 months I fired him from my case and hired Joe and he fixed lot of mess which I was in. Joe did a wonderful job in fixing things that was left from my previous lawyer and worked really hard to get me on track. He is very open and very prompt in responding with in no time if I had any questions regarding my case. I highly recommend Joe.
