Jim O’Neill has successfully handled many divorce cases with child custody and child support issues together with alimony and property issues. Recently, he handled a post-judgment of divorce on behalf of a client, who as mother, was prevented by court order from seeing her 2 teenaged daughters. While this matter had been dragging on for almost a year, and his client had spent close to $70,000.00 for several top Oakland County Family Law lawyers – no progress was made.
When the client hired James P. O’Neill, however, he prepared a detailed and appropriate Motion to be heard by the Oakland County Judge and as was opposed by the Attorney for the father, the Oakland County Friend of the Court and the children’s Guardian Ad Litem. Despite having such strong opposition, Mr. O’Neill was able to get immediate but somewhat limited parenting time for his client and with her daughters. After the next hearing, and through his direct efforts, his client’s parenting time with her daughters was expanded even more.
Mr. O’Neill used DNA evidence to prove that his client “Was Not the Father” in a paternity case.
Alimony, adoption, property settlements, custody of children and support of them together with parenting time issues make up the vast majority of family court issues.
There is no benefit to hire firms that represent only men or only women. Representing each side provides the best information and experience.
Mr. O'Neill helped me win my case and receive the settlement. I don't think I would have won without him.
O'Neill Law Firm is my go to lawyer after he convinced the jury that I had done nothing wrong and in fact had been taken advantage of by an unfair business. I recommend him highly.
