Highly Recommended
I was referred to Mr James Padish to handle my case and was very pleased to have had his representation. Extremely professional and a good man. It is good to have someone that you can count on when the need for expert legal services comes about.

I couldn't be happier
Mr. Padish was recommended to me by an attorney friend of mine, and I couldn't be happier following that recommendation. He handled my divorce case and was knowledgeable, calming, honest, upfront, and reliable. His paralegal, Alicia, was also extremely helpful and communicative. Make the right choice and call Padish Law, you won't regret it!

Top Notch
Jim Padish handled my highly contentious divorce and I could not be more grateful to him and his team; Alicia Gallo is top notch. During a difficult time, Jim advocated for me and also taught me a great deal about advocating for myself by the time the divorce was finalized. He has one of the sharpest legal minds around and shows tremendous compassion and patience for his clients. It is rare to find attorney's with both qualities and Jim has them in spades.

Excellent
From the moment Jim Padish introduced himself to me, to the time he stepped into the courtroom, he handled my case with professionalism, integrity and timeliness. And he is an outstanding litigator. I felt like I was the only case he was working on. Jim Padish always returned my phone calls and emails promptly and never made me feel like I was burdening him. Mr. Padish is detail oriented, made sure he filed my paperwork on time, and always handled other parties and attorneys very professional. His paralegal, Alicia, is patient, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. Alicia worked very hard on my case; a special thank you to her as well. My case was complex; and Mr. Padish did an amazing job. I will not hesitate to recommend him.

Couldn't ask for better!
I was given a recommendation to see Mr. Padish as a divorce attorney for my daughter. Due to her abusive situation she was being completely controlled. Mr. Padish knew the right way to guide and counsel her before he proceeded with legal action. This was a blessing to have my once close relationship with my daughter restored again. He allowed parts of the process to be done by us to hold down costs. We never felt pushed to do anything that would have added to the cost of the divorce. He and his staff quickly dealt with all issues that needed his attention. This office really cares about their clients.

Great office and felt well represented
I have a very complex case and Jim and his paralegal have been beyond accommodating to hear my case and make feel feel protected and represented in the best light possible.

Very pleased!
James Padish represented me through my divorce and I am very pleased with the outcome. He made me feel confident and comfortable the entire time. His Paralegal, Alicia Gallo, was just as pleasant to work with and very personable. Going through a divorce at a fairly young age, and add two children under the age of 3, was very frightening at times. But I never lost hope that Mr. Padish would have justice served, and give me the ability to move forward with my life. His expertise with law, and previous career as a Judge, gave me the ease to go about my day and remain hopeful the entire process. I would recommend James Padish to anyone who feels taken advantage of by their spouse or business partner, and wants a shark to represent them. His name alone is worth every penny because of his reputation among his peers. A huge thank you to The Padish & Wells team!

Highly recommend
Judge Padish is different than most lawyers because he really cares about his clients. He kept me informed throughout my case and I always knew I was in good hands.

James Padish is one of the best attorney's I have worked with ever. He is so knowledgeable, easy to talk to, always available and just an all around nice guy. He goes out of his way to help his clients. He is not all about the money but about helping his clients out. He is great to work with and I recommend him to everyone! You can't go wrong with James Padish.

Great Attorney!
Jim is by far the best attorney one could ask for. He is worth every dime and comes to court prepared and ready. He has been my attorney for the last 8 years and still is as issues arise.
