Repeat Use: DUI and others
I have used Mr. Filliben on 3 occasions. In each case, he has delivered an outstanding service that has led to the best possible expected outcomes. His knowledge of the law and his pragmatic approach and advise are invaluable. Most importantly, in the law profession, he is clearly a lawyer with outstanding ethics who utilizes his practice to serve his clients' best interests. I would highly recommend for a variety of services from DUI charges to help with business dealings.

You did a fantastic job, Thank You!
My experience with him was fantastic, attorney Jamie Filliben accepted my case a day before my court hearing and he was able to dismiss a restraining order - domestic violence case which is based on false allegations. He exceeded my expectations. Highly recommended!

Tremendous Lawyer
I was charged with AWS drugs - A misdemeanor charge stemming from a false accusation and I got myself a speeding ticket in a work zone that was going to get me outrageous points. I had gotten another lawyer who wasn’t fighting for me as he managed to get me 3 points on a deal when I hadn’t had but one dropped traffic violation in 2 years . That’s when I researched and found SeiferFlatow. I met Jamie and explained the circumstances and he was able to club together both the cases for an reasonable charge. He’s a very straight forward professional lawyer who will relate with you on a human level. He doesn’t pass any judgements and he’s got great tact in dealing with what he’s being handed to him (your case). He put in more time in one week on my case than my previous lawyer had in 3 months. If you have an issue be confident that Jamie won’t waste your time. He’ll give you the best representation possible and won’t charge you unfairly.

All charges dropped
I'm currently in a doctorate level program and any criminal charges could have vastly messed up my future and ability to pay off already acquired debt. I was accused of a felony and a misdemeanor. However, Jamie was able to help get the state to drop both charges. He was professional, supportive, and honest throughout the process. He works long hours for his clients. He called me past 9 PM on the evening I was turning myself in just to make sure we both understood the plan he laid out. He did not make over the top claims initially, but once the facts were on my side he made sure the charges would not follow me. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a lawyer. I hope and pray I never need to hire an attorney again, but I would be very comfortable with Jamie in my corner.

Jamie is the advocate you want on your side
Jamie represented me in a challenging divorce case with multiple complex considerations and factors. He was empathetic, responsive, thorough, and supportive. His counsel provided me the confidence I needed to navigate this difficult process. I highly recommend him.

Perfection
Jamie was an absolute pleasure to have as my Lawyer! I couldn't believe how efficient him and his team are in the court room. If you want the best representation for your case I HIGHLY recommend using the Seifer & Flatow Law firm! I owe these people my dignity and career. Thank you again and again!

Great firm to work with
My Lawer, James Filliben was fantastic and what is most important, is he personally cared for my case and made sure I was given the justice I deserved. I have great respect for James and the firm he represents and recommend everyone to concider James and Adam for your legal needs.

Absolutely Amazing Attorney!
Jamie is incredibly intelligent, compassionate, and professional. He is the only attorney I have worked with that truly is cost conscious and cared about me as a person as well as a client. He is extremely strategic and sees the big picture. If you are still reading reviews looking for a top notch attorney, you can stop here. Jamie is your man!

Could not recommend Jamie more highly
I was arrested for DUI in Cabarrus County, NC, and hired Jamie to help me navigate what was an extremely stressful situation. While I did not ultimately win my case in what turned out to be an extremely tough county, I could not recommend Jamie more highly for his inside-out knowledge of the relevant case law, courage to make whatever arguments necessary in front of a hostile judge, empathy for my self-imposed situation, and responsiveness whenever I had questions (and I had a lot!). He identified serious holes in the state's case and was able to maneuver my trial date to fall in front of the most favorable judge possible, but unfortunately the DA switched us at the last minute to a much tougher judge -- still, he was able to salvage for me the lightest sentence possible. If you find yourself in a similar jam and need someone to fight for you, things are not hopeless. I could not recommend Jamie Filliben more highly.

Awesome Attorney!!!
Attorney Filliben is an outstanding attorney! Very strategic, transparent, compassionate, and a man of very high character. He's extremely responsive, answered my calls even while on vacation with his family. Going through a custody case is not easy, but I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. I was very worried about the bias of being the father in a custody case and hoped that I would never have to step foot in a court room. I did however have to go to court, Attorney Filliben presented all the facts and was phenomenal in the court room with a great closing statement. After almost 2 years and 8 hours in a court room The case was over and I got equal custody of my son!

A good man to have in your corner
I was facing 4 criminal misdemeanor charges with all the odds stacked against me, the situation I was in was extremely stressful and exhausting. I contacted Siefer Flatow and hired Mr. Filliben as my attorney. My case was difficult as the prosecutors were adamant on me not walking away from this. Jamie worked vigorously and laid out all my options in a way that was easy for me to understand. With everything that we were up against it was a daunting task to defend but Jamie was able to work out a deal with the prosecution to not only dismiss the charges but also worked it so they would be eligible for expungement after a brief period of time. I had lots of questions and concerns regarding the outcome and Jamie addressed them quickly and with great counseling. With Mr. Filliben expertise we were able to secure the best possible outcome. He jumped through several hoops and went above and beyond in order to satisfy my concerns through the entire proceedings all the way up to when we took the stand. He never lead me to believe anything that wasn't possible, and was very honest, which is exactly what you need when you are facing criminal charges. If you are looking for a lawyer who is well connected and extremely knowledgeable in the profession of law then look no further and hire Mr. Filliben. Thanks to him I can sleep peacefully and move forward with my life without having the gloom of guilt over my head. He was there day and night when I had a concern and i'm certain he will do you the same for anyone reading this looking for representation. Thanks again Jamie, your work is greatly appreciated.

Great attorney
Jamie stepped in on my legal case that I had in his office when he didn't have too. He was willing to fight for me and give me a chance I wasn't fully explained before he stepped in. My case has been, and still is, going on for over a year now and since he stepped in, not long ago, it was the first time I felt as though someone was caring enough to try for me and my situation. I would most definitely hire and recommend Jamie!

Best Child Custody Attorney
It is hard to put into words the gratitude I have for Mr. Filliben and his team. My case was complicated at best. Many attorneys couldn't begin to figure out how to help. Mr. Filliben, Ms. Dusenbury and Ms. Koch worked tirelessly for months to assure my children's safety. There were times when Mr. Filliben even contacted me from remote locations while he was on vacation to make sure we were alright. He was always prepared. He is compassionate to our situation, yet knowledgable and sharp in the courtroom. Jaime never made unrealistic promises. However, he delivers. Because of this firm, I now have renewed faith in the justice system. I will never use a different attorney in the state of NC. My family is finally healing because of the blessings given through Jaime and his team.

Awesome!!
Jamie represented us in a child custody case. He walked us thru the process and was on call not only during business hours but after hours. He was very involved and handled everything from day one to completion. We knew once we hired him that we were not just another client, and we felt confident he would get the best outcome for us which he did! We interviewed with other well known attorneys in the area and signed with him on the spot. I highly recommend Jaime! Thank you so much for everything you did for us!!

Turn-key divorce solution. Look no further.
This was my first rodeo. Jamie Filliben gently assessed my unique situation, eased me toward a full understanding of my options, and provided strong advocacy throughout the process. He is very knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. All fees were reasonable and well-documented. Best choice I ever made (to resolve the worst one).
