Mr. Neavitt was an excellent choice for my custody case matter. I had previously worked with Jarvis, Kreager and Sullivan, a supposedly "big name" in the local Family Law scene, but everything about Mr. Neavitt and his staff was an improvement over that much larger firm. Mr. Neavitt's staff prepared my court filings and did an excellent job from the beginning, and they took the time to get to know my case so that they could effectively communicate my arguments. This was a big deal for me, because the staff at Jarvis did a terrible job, and my wife and I were eventually forced to prepare all of the documents ourselves. On the day of the actual court appearance, Mr. Neavitt was clearly in charge. He seemed to give off an air of competency and control that was felt by everyone, including and especially opposing counsel. I would recommend his office highly to anyone looking to settle a Family Law case.

James Neavitt went over and beyond the call of duty! He helped me and my children through one of the most dark and difficult times of our lives. He is knowledgeable and trustworthy. The divorce and custody battle went on for two years, with many issues continuing over time! He is always there for us. He also had excellent referrals and helps for many issues and needs that come along with divorce. His staff is awesome! They are patient, kind, professional and helpful. They explain things that might be going on and they calmly inform you of things that will be happening.
Going to court was SO stressful and scary to me. Jim , was always prepared, and explained what would /or could happen. He cared for my children and me and what was important for our needs and desires. I always felt he was respected by the court. We would never have made it without the help , wisdom and protection of James T. Neavitt and his amazing staff. May God continue to bless them all.

Mr. Neavitt was my attorney on a complex domestic violence and child custody dispute, and support matter. My complex custody issues included substance abuse, domestic violence and mental illness, all of which Mr. Neavitt skillfully reported to the court over vigorous opposition. I was granted domestic violence temporary restraining orders. The support issues were complex because my husband (self-employed) has refused to produce discovery and any financial information. Mr. Neavitt was able to focus the court's attention directly on these matters, despite the smoke & mirrors & misdirection of my husband and his legal counsel. The result of the hearing was 100% in my favor. Mr. Neavitt's skill, knowledge and Family Law expertise have been well worth the money that I have paid him thus far, and the $25K attorney fee award which he was able to obtain for me yesterday will go a long way toward continuing my legal representation and obtaining a fair distribution of our assets. I am a single mom, on a limited income, and Mr. Neavitt really fought for me. P.S. Mr. Neavitt's staff is fabulous to work with, especially Julie, Claudia and Sue!!
