 James T Flaherty And His Team Are Experienced And Innovative

James Flaherty and other attorneys at Flaherty Legal Group focus on handling family law. All attorneys at the firm are experienced in litigation, arbitration, mediation and collaboration methods of resolving domestic divorce and post-divorce disputes.


Approach To Mediation And Trial In Divorce Matters

Attorney James Flaherty  regards trials as expensive and damaging in divorce cases and believes that litigation should only be undertaken when all other options are exhausted. However, in spite of a number of mediation alternatives built into the judicial system, in some cases trial becomes the only option, This usually happens in cases where one partner refuses to compromise or has been abusive in a relationship.

Attorney Flaherty brings decades of litigation experience to the table in every case that reaches trial, and is recognized by the legal community as a tough advocate for his clients.  In the courtroom Mr Flaherty strives to attain results his clients believe they deserve.
