In 2001, James J. Sexton, Esq. borrowed $5,000 from friends and family and founded Law Offices of James J. Sexton, P.C. in a small office with a part-time administrative assistant. He had been admitted to the practice of law for approximately six months and was told, by countless well intentioned friends and colleagues, that his chances of building a successful divorce law practice were slim. By 2003, his practice was thriving, his calendar full and he employed two Associate Attorneys and a full-time staff. By 2014 Sexton was managing a team of six Associate Attorneys supported by a dedicated staff of Paralegals and Administrative Assistants working from two full-time offices (located in Manhattan and Rockland County).
Mr. Sexton's skills as an advocate and trial lawyer, and the results he has obtained for clients, in the Courtroom and at the negotiating table, have grown his practice and facilitated his rise from a "small town" lawyer to a dominating force in the New York State divorce and family law bar - experienced and smart enough to handle everything from complex litigation to simple "uncontested" divorces.
From Fortune 500 executives and world renowned surgeons to police officers and stay-at-home moms - from "traditional" divorce, custody and child support matters to "cutting edge" courtroom battles that have actively shaped the development of law for families of every kind: men, women, unmarried co-parents, "traditional" heterosexual married couples, same sex couples (married and unmarried) and every other possible permutation. Mr. Sexton's client base is diverse but always well represented.
Although the demand for his representation has, in recent years, experienced an unprecedented growth, Mr. Sexton insists on providing each and every client with the level of responsiveness and personal attention that they deserve and should demand from their attorney. Mr. Sexton's uncompromising attention to detail, technological innovation, "lightning fast" response time and unyielding approach to advocacy, in the courtroom and at the negotiating table, requires that he maintain an intentionally selective client roster.
James J. Sexton is Managing Partner of Law Offices of James J. Sexton, PC where, with a hand picked and highly skilled team of attorneys, paralegals and support staff he proudly serves all five boroughs of New York City as well as Rockland, Orange, and Westchester Counties.
Mr. Sexton meets with clients and potential new client consultations by appointment only.
