James "Jay" Devitt - Partner

Jay has been practicing law for 26 years and never lost a divorce case or custody dispute. One of the reasons is that he will often retain a forensic accountant to testify as an expert on complex financial issues. Furthermore, when the Court orders a child custody evaluation, he knows which evaluators tend to favor Husbands or Wives and which can be counted on to be fair and impartial.

If you need a restraining order or you have been served with one, Jay will be able to make sure that the Court considers all the facts by properly preparing witnesses and evidence and presenting it to the Court in a logical, lawyer-like fashion.

Jay prides himself on close communication with his clients by taking all client telephone calls or returning them the same day, even if he is in trial and must call back in the evening. He is available on weekends and evenings when necessary.
