James expressed his legal opinion and then let me decide how to proceed. I valued his opinion and really liked his frankness. I've utilized his services twice and highly recommend him for anyone needing advice or courtroom legal support. His wife, Cathy, is very friendly and complements the firm well. When I called for a second advice call, I was surprised that she remembered my first case. Speedy work, solid advice and quality legal care!

I have retained James Claflin twice; initially for my divorce in 2014 and again for a child support/school zoning hearing in 2016. Issues he has addressed for me are: division of property, child custody and holiday scheduling, child support, financial responsibilities of both parents, and school zoning for my son. Mr. Claflin and his paralegal Kathy ALWAYS provided excellent advice, support, and prompt responses to my questions. They are honest, forthcoming, and clearly passionate about what they do. Additionally, Mr. Claflin's knowledge of the law is exceptional. After meeting with him I always felt well informed and prepared to face whatever legal hurdle I faced. While I hope that my court dealings with my ex-spouse will subside as time goes on, I will absolutely re-retain Mr. Claflin every time I need legal representation.

James and Katherine's professionalism should not go unnoticed. Dealing with a stressful situation they acted with kindness and responded to emails or calls timely with answers I needed. I did not feel alone in my situation. They came in near the end of my situation and understood what it was I was trying to achieve and helped me reach that. They stuck to what the game plan was and did not veer off. If I were to ever need their services in the future I would most definitely use them and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I cannot speak highly enough of both James and his paralegal, Kathy. I came to Mr Claflin in need of a modification of my divorce decree which included gaining joint physical custody of my sons and ensuring I recieved the correct amount of child support.
If you want an honest, fair attorney, look no further. He and Kathy treated me wonderfully, both being very patient with my questions and ensuring I remained calm and unafraid through what was incredibly stressful for me.
Apart from his affability, Mr. Claflin respects the court and the law and will do his best to ensure that the case is handled correctly and fairly for both sides. He is not someone who tries to play the pitbull lawyer - he will fight for you but will not pander to the lowest common denominator. If you are looking for steady, reasonable, and honest representation, James Claflin is the attorney for you.

My experience with James Claflin was excellent. He drafted numerous divorce settlement agreements in a very timely manner. My wife's attorney was very unprofessional and lazy. James and his team picked up the slack and filed documents that wasn't their job to do. I would highly recommend James and his team.

James provided reassurance and exuded confidence throughout our case. He acted professionally and in our meetings he showed attention to detail and was thorough in gathering information for our motion. During our trial James stuck to the facts, admirably presented our case, and worked amicably with the judge in a cooperative manner to find a satisfactory solution. Overall, Claflin Law was a pleasure to work with and provided the results we desired.

Mr. Claflin explained everything to me so I would understand every detail of what was happening or going to happen with my case. he help me get through some very hard times and I was able to call him and his staff any time. Always returning my calls as soon as possible. Mr. Claflin is very polite, understanding, a gentleman and very professional. I felt I was treated as a person and not just a case. I would highly recommend Mr. Claflin to anyone in need of an attorney.

James and Kathy Claflin are a wonderful team. They are personable and very genuine and true professionals. Throughout the divorce case, James was clear and transparent when it came to both the strategy and the fees. Along with his wisdom and years of expertise, Claflin's intuitive sense helped guide us in the right direction. He fought hard and won the motion to completely dismiss our case to California and also went the extra mile to fight for more.
There were moments when the situation became emotional, but both James and Kathy opened their kind hearts and minds in order to understand the personal complexities of their client. They understand they are dealing with human beings going through a very tough chapter in their life.
Claflin's knowledge of law and his patience in communicating this knowledge was a further extension of his professional and emotional intelligence. I would highly recommend attorney James Claflin to anyone going through a divorce.

I was a little suspicions of all who work in the legal field. I thought that all Lawyer's were ambulance chasers or vampires. James has change my views of what it is to be a lawyer, so much so that I would like to join the legal field to help others as much as he helped me.
James has represented me on multiple occasions during the process of my divorce, attempted relocation and attempts to remove my parental rights. Most recently he assist me in defeating a motion of relocation. He had me prepared every step of the way and did a wonderful job of explaining the process to me. He gave me legal guidance that I followed and still follow to this day. Because of this, I still have joint custody of my children to this day.
During the course of my case James had to take an immense amount of information that I was providing to him and turn it into a legal countermotion. He did an artful job of integrating the facts of my case, with the legal precedent and things that I felt were important to my case and turn it into a valuable defense.
James and Kathy did such a great job that I would gladly recommend James to any of my closest friends or family members in need of his services.
