Happy Clients We’ve Helped

"I hired Attorney James Mulligan on the recommendation of a friend for a custody case. I’m the grandmother of two beautiful children whose parents were not fully engaged and sidetracked by other issues. Attorney Mulligan guided me through the entire legal process and explained all of my rights as a grandparent. My custody case was very lengthy but recently came to a conclusion where I received legal and primary custody of my grandchildren. Attorney Mulligan really helped through some very difficult times. I highly recommend him for anyone with a family law issue in Pennsylvania."
