After attempting to handle my "uncontested' divorce myself, I quickly realized I was in over my head. As soon as I spoke to Tim's assistant, Terri, I felt instantly relieved. Tim and his team held my hand through the entire process. Tim was tough when dealing with my ex and supportive with me when I would have hard days. The team was also very responsive to calls and emails. I couldn't be more pleased with the terms of my divorce. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

I cannot say enough good about my experience with Mr. Durkin and his staff. I have referred friends and family to him. It is the best experience I have had with a law firm. I have worked in the legal field and have had experiences in civil, criminal, and family law cases. That said, I did not get everything I had wanted after trial either. I was able to get a clear cut case presented that represented well my interests and that of my child. The things that were the most important, especially for my child were supported by the judge, but there were things that wound up more in the middle. I felt that the judge got the truth and was able to make a decision based on the facts and evidence. My case has been ongoing for nearly 12 years and this is the first time despite rulings in my favor that I was able to get attorney’s fees. Mr. Timothy Durkin has been a friend of my family for many years. I knew him when he was a law student and worked as a college teacher. I was impressed with his teaching skills yet when he began practicing family law I continued to use a different attorney. Through the years I have used multiple attorneys. There have been times I have been charged a great deal more and received much less service and times I have paid less but also received less service. The assistants at his firm are well educated and pay great attention to detail. I first decided to switch to Mr. Durkin’s law firm after I saw him at trial. This man is quick on his feet, he knows his information and he fights for his client. I was impressed with how he handled the opposing party. My current husband struggled with the cost of my case, but after seeing Mr. Durkin in action said he would have paid more, it was worth every penny. Prior to trial he is real with you. He prepares you for questions and for possible outcomes. I didn’t go into the situation with unrealistic expectations yet I was able to be hopeful about the things that were attainable. His experience in the court room gives you great insight. He is familiar with the judges and how they handle certain situations, he knows when you need an expert and when you can depend on your own evidence. One of the most useful things I experienced is the guidance from his legal assistant on how to handle correspondence with the opposing party. I feel that documents were prepared accurately, timely, and with the sensitivity that they needed. I will continue to use Mr. Durkin on my current case and would happily use him and his staff in the future if needed for any other family law matter. I highly recommend him!
