I hired Mr. Madden last minute after being granted a temporary restraining order against the mother of my Fiance's son. I needed help moving forward with the permanent order and was desperate. This case was complicated, yucky and extensive. I had only a short time to meet with Mr. Madden and he caught on quickly to the severity.
After filing for my Temporary order without representation and making many rookie mistakes, Mr.Madden was able to clean them up. He sifted through all the complicated evidence and was able to provide a clear account of my suffering.
Just yesterday we went to trial and I was granted a permanent restringing order. I now feel safe for the first time in 3 years. As all cases are important to those involved, this was particularity sensitive for my family. My Fiance being a Physician, myself a Teacher and Business Owner with a blended family, life is already stressful enough. Being harassed for the pure fact of wanting to live our lives together was daunting to say the least.
Mr. Madden winning our case means I will be safe at my work places, safe to parent my soon to be step son and safe to move forward with our wedding without the fear of the unknown. Mr.Madden's professionalism and his caring nature has changed our lives, I feel extremely confident in recommending him and will be hiring him again this week to push forward with my Fiance's portion of our case.

A few years back I hired James for a complicated custody case. His paralegal made it seem like I had nothing to worry about and it turned out later about 90% of the info she gave me was wrong. James up and left to some other law firm after doing NOTHING on my case. Literally nothing. They never even filed a single paper with the court. He made up some story about a big lawyer retiring and making some super lawyer team up in his place. Total BS. But to keep his representation, I would have to pay an entire new retainer. They sent me a bill for some BS charges so they wouldn't have to pay me back and that was the end of it. I'm still considering complaining to the BAR.

I came in frantic on a emergency situation, my 16yr old daughter was in some danger , a runaway from a unsafe environment, when she would come to me for help and I couldn't protect her and she was put back into the same situation and continued to runaway, there was nothing I could do as I had 0 physical or legal custody in over 8 years. I brought everything I could with me but it just didn't seem like enough on paperwork for me to get any of my rights back let alone custody. I knew I couldn't do this alone as that route failed for me many times in the past. I called his office around 11am on Monday was given a appointment for the following Tues which was 8 days away!! I explained the I needed help much faster than that! James agreed and had me come in at 5pm, he also explained to me I made it very difficult for him but he would gladly try to help. After over 10yrs of fighting alone , JAMES STEPPED UP FOR ME AND HAD MY DAUGHTER SAFELY OFF THE STREETS AND PROTECTED BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. I can not THANK JAMES D. MADDEN enough. this is no doubt my best day in court during the entire process and I wish I would have went to Howington & Associates on day 1, but even with all my mistakes they handled my case with the upmost priority
and came out with extraordinary results.
