I have been working with James Madden for over a year. My case is complicated and my X mis-states facts in both mediation and court, which adds a lot of stress. But Jim assured me that the truth would prevail. He took the time to fully read and understand my financial history (for the child support hearing) as well as my history with my ex-husband, which includes a stay away order (for the visitation hearing). I needed my story to be heard by the judge and Jim made sure I was able to do that. In the end, I am happy with the outcome on all of our trials. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for representation in family law.

Cop vs con custody battle
My son came for vacation decided he didn’t want to return to his mother on account of home life and new boyfriend she hit me with emergency custody and was informed by her sneaky lawyer day before court James was the only lawyer out of about 20 who felt he could help me everyone else said I was going to lose because I was a convicted felon and she was a cop i was granted temp custody till next court hearing I personally felt I was going to have to give up my son his mother made me look real bad but James saw through the false claims and got me custody of my son I was real pleased with his performance I wouldn’t have my son if not for him…. He is a great lawyer – would highly recommend him….

Best family attorney around
Mr. Madden took my case when nobody else would. Every attorney I had spoken with told me that my ex was going to win. I called Mr. Madden after speaking to him he WANTED my case. He fought long and hard for me. He went above and beyond his legal obligation to me as an attorney. In the beginning the ball was so far out of my court that I had begun to give up!!! He fought harder than I was ever capable of fighting. In the end I had won. I am now happily living with my son. Mr. Madden was able to pick me up when I felt I was not able to continue. If you want an attorney that is going to fight for you like you were one of his own I would suggest him!!!!

Excellent Divorce Attorney
I highly recommend James Madden as a Divorce attorney. His Law firm is very professional and efficient. James really makes you feel important and he has always been available to talk or meet in person. James always had my best interest when representing me in my divorce case and every time we went to court we got very positive results. I can’t say enough good thing s about Mr. Madden and his law firm of CKB Vienna. Mr. Madden represents that law firm with the utmost respect and has represented me in my Divorce with the utmost respect and I am so glad I had him as my attorney. Mr. Madden is very knowledgeable with family law and was very professional in our court room appearances. I will continue to use Mr. Madden and CBK Vienna for any and all my legal circumstances. I would highly recommend anyone needing a Family law lawyer to at least get a consultation with Mr. James Madden.

I have all faith in his work
Mr. Madden is representing me for my case for divorce and custody. He is a very prepared attorney and I truly feel he has my best interest at the forefront. We went to court for custody after my ex tried only giving me 1st and 3rd weekends of the month. Not only did I get to keep my four days a week but he got me everything to go in my favor and made opposing counsel look like a rookie. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer!

David Slays Goliath: Underdog in move away case & I listened to Madden & it worked out
Sons’ mothers moved away. He was only 1 but I had 22 percent custody and she was just trying to take my son from me. I listened to Madden, it was stressful, expensive, and a lot of work, but everything worked out. I was elated. My son’s mother moved back and I have 50 percent custody. Afterwards I referred Madden two friends and he handled their divorces and another friend interned for him after graduating law school. Madden is a local guy, he knows the courts and he knows everyone from the judges to the sheriffs. He’s experienced and if I hadn’t hired him I probably would have an uncle type of relationship with my son and not the close father-son bond we have today.

Civil Restraining Order
I hired Mr. Madden last minute after being granted a temporary restraining order against the mother of my Fiancé’s son. I needed help moving forward with the permanent order and was desperate. This case was complicated, yucky and extensive. I had only a short time to meet with Mr. Madden and he caught on quickly to the severity. After filing for my Temporary order without representation and making many rookie mistakes, Mr. Madden was able to clean them up. He sifted through all the complicated evidence and was able to provide a clear account of my suffering. Just yesterday we went to trial and I was granted a permanent restringing order. I now feel safe for the first time in 3 years. As all cases are important to those involved, this was particularity sensitive for my family. My Fiancé being a Physician, myself a Teacher and Business Owner with a blended family, life is already stressful enough. Being harassed for the pure fact of wanting to live our lives together was daunting to say the least. Mr. Madden winning our case means I will be safe at my work places, safe to parent my soon to be step son and safe to move forward with our wedding without the fear of the unknown. Mr. Madden’s professionalism and his caring nature has changed our lives, I feel extremely confident in recommending him and will be hiring him again this week to push forward with my Fiancé’s portion of our case.

James, a hero to me and my daughter
I came in frantic on an emergency situation, my 16yr old daughter was in some danger, a runaway from a unsafe environment, when she would come to me for help and I couldn’t protect her and she was put back into the same situation and continued to run away, there was nothing I could do as I had 0 physical or legal custody in over 8 years. I brought everything I could with me but it just didn’t seem like enough on paperwork for me to get any of my rights back let alone custody. I knew I couldn’t do this alone as that route failed for me many times in the past. I called his office around 11am on Monday was given an appointment for the following Tues which was 8 days away!! I explained that I needed help much faster than that! James agreed and had me come in at 5pm, he also explained to me I made it very difficult for him but he would gladly try to help. After over 10yrs of fighting alone, JAMES STEPPED UP FOR ME AND HAD MY DAUGHTER SAFELY OFF THE STREETS AND PROTECTED BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON. I cannot THANK JAMES D. MADDEN enough. this is no doubt my best day in court during the entire process and I wish I would have went to Howington & Associates on day 1, but even with all my mistakes they handled my case with the upmost priority and came out with extraordinary results.

Responsive and Effective Defense
James was fantastic! Responsive, aggressive and fair in handling my daughter’s case. My daughter is a good kid who got caught in a bad place. James not only got her case dismissed but went the extra mile in helping me as a parent educate and put a healthy dose of fear in her to change her habits and her friends. I would use James again for any criminal related case because he is very strategic. He had laid out several possible plans of action depending on the way the case proceeded and stayed with us throughout. A real gem!

HONEST & TRUSTWORTHY!
James Madden and his paralegal are truly genuine great people! After talking to several attorneys and the circumstances I was up against they were by my side the entire way! The cost was reasonable and they went beyond their means to assist me in my matter! Both James and Angelica are very knowledgeable! James is an incredible attorney and Angelica is such a professional and an amazing human being! They were both sensitive to my case and got involved as if they were fighting it for themselves! Looking at the odds I never imagined the results that we got! And for that I am so thankful to them both! My calls were answered day and night and even on the weekends! I would highly recommend attorney James Madden he is honest and will give you the true facts pertaining to your case.

He’s the best and will get you the results you want!!!!
I never imagined divorce would be this difficult to go through, especially after moving cross country to be with my family. When it came evident that my marriage was headed for divorce I started calling different attorneys. The free consultations on the average lasted between 20-30minutes and I wasn’t impressed with their responses. So I did more research online about Law firms that are advocates for father’s rights and HOLSTROM, SISSUNG, MARKS & ANDERSON, APLC was the best for my situation and their reviews were outstanding!!!! Their free consultation lasted about an hour and they didn’t try to rush me off the phone like some other firms!!! Mr. Madden and his paralegal had me come in and right away they made me feel at home. Mr. Madden did a great job of preparing me for what was ahead and educating me on the legal aspect of divorce pertaining to California laws. In court he did a FANTASTIC JOB OF FIGHTING FOR ME AND LISTENING TO WHAT I WANTED!!!! Mr. Madden, his paralegal, and the entire firm makes me feel like family each time I walk through the door especially with me not being from California that is important to me. Mr. Madden and his team have gone far and beyond to help me. They respond quickly to my concerns with professionalism and efficiency!! He was able to get custody for me and protect me as an individual. I don’t know where I would be without Mr. Madden concerning the most important matter in my life which is my daughter and protecting my rights as a FATHER!!!!!!!

Custody & Family Law
The greatest thing that could have happened to me was walking into James Madden’s office and meeting his paralegal! She took charge of my situation put me in contact directly with Mr. Madden and assisted me in a time that I felt my entire world was coming to an end! Dealing with a custody battle out of state and re-gaining full legal custody of my daughter with the help of this dynamic duo, I am forever grateful! Mr. Madden fought and never gave up worked day and night along with his paralegal. They both would call me and when it came down to flying to pick up my daughter they rejoiced along with me! My case was very complex and they achieved what everyone said I would never gain! I highly recommend James Madden as an attorney. Forever thankful!

Child Support & Custody
Mr. Madden represented me for my child support and custody case. From the initial consultation, throughout court hearings and until the end, Mr. Madden understood my concerns and goals I wanted to accomplish with my case. During such a difficult time for my children and I, Mr. Madden’s representation brought peace and balance back in our lives. The final custody orders were in my favor and child support as well. I’m extremely pleased with outcome of my case and would highly recommend Mr. Madden. Thank you for all your professionalism and services.

Restored my faith!
I am like most people who, when faced with a situation that requires legal help, was completely overwhelmed. I was in the midst of a nasty custody battle and to honest, I was getting my butt kicked. I found Mr. Madden through this site as well as through a recommendation from a friend. I was amazed at how Mr. Madden took charge and turned everything around. I could not be more happy with the results. Mr. Madden got the judge to see the truth and I now have primary custody of my daughter. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Hard working, Dedicated, Devoted and Knowledgeable are just some of the words that pop up in mind when thinking about James’ work ethic. He will FIGHT for you until the end. Working beside James, I’ve noticed how many clients are 100% dedicated to him and his services and have returned with any other legal issues they have encountered. If you have any legal issues, contact him ASAP. You will thank me later.
