Since he was "sworn in" as an attorney in Brooklyn, New York in 2001, James J. Sexton’s skills as a trial lawyer and courtroom advocate have rapidly thrust him into the forefront of the New York State family landscape.


Described by some as a "compassionate and dedicated advocate" and by others as a "courtroom gunslinger" or "the sociopath you want on your side," Sexton has captured the attention of the New York legal community and the results he obtains for his clients, in the courtroom and at the negotiating table, speak for themselves. 

Sexton has intentionally focused his practice on divorce and family law since his graduation Fordham Law School. In addition to his Juris Doctorate (Law Degree) he has a Master of Arts degree from New York University where he focused his graduate research on the areas of persuasive speech and propaganda studies.

Known for his intense focus and discipline, Sexton wakes up at 4:00am every day (including weekends) so he can return emails and contemplate his next move in the "chess match" of your divorce. 

Sexton resides in Manhattan where, in his limited free time, he enjoys competing and training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a member of the Marcelo Garcia Academy (NYC).
