I recently went through a very difficult child custody case. I met with several attorneys before deciding to retain James McGuire. James and his team were extremely knowledgeable and kept on top of everything to ensure we had the best case possible.
Opposing counsel was very difficult to work with and they kept trying to drag things out and delay as much as possible. They were determined to keep a 50/50 custody arrangement that was obviously not working and all attempts at mediation were unsuccessful. James fought their attempts to postpone trail for the third time and won. Our case was one of the few that end up in trial and James fought very hard for me in the courtroom.
I was extremely impressed when I went to his law firm to prep for trial and James had an entire team of people there providing guidance on my case. He really cared about my case and worked very hard to achieve the best possible results. I could not be more happy with my decision to hire him. I would hire James again and recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney.

James Mcguire is one of the finest attorneys I have come across in my career. He is the best advocate and counsel that I could have asked for. Without his guidance and expertise, I am sure I would not have been able to get through and finalize my divorce with the outcome that was acheived. James is a great attorney!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse James McGuire. James is a skilled family law attorney and mediator. He is well respected in the legal community for both his strong advocacy and ability to successfully mediate cases. I readily endorse his work.
