Tenacious Rockville Family Law Attorney
Rockville, Connecticut is situated in Tolland County. Whether my purpose is business or pleasure, “going to the Rock” is never boring. When I have time to stroll around, I enjoy the architectural delights of the Rockville Historic District such as the St. Bernard Church and the Tower on Fox Hill. My clients come first, however, and some have needed my help, as a Rockville Family Law Attorney.
Family relationships are the most intimate, and sometimes the most fragile of all relationships. When something goes wrong, whether it be divorce, custody issues, the arrest of one of your children, or any one of the myriads of other problems that can arise in the context of family relationships – your whole world can be turned upside down.
The Law Doesn’t Enforce Itself
The entire U.S. legal system is based on a competitive model, the so-called “adversarial system.” Although Connecticut has moderated the more brutal aspects of this system when it comes to most family law matters, the essential nature of the system remains.
My name is James C. WIng, Jr., and as a Rockville family law attorney I have been assisting people like you as a family law lawyer for more than 30 years now – all right here in Connecticut. I understand the nuances of the local legal system, and I know from decades of experience when it is time to fight and when it is time to cooperatively work things out. I promise to treat your problem as my problem, and your concerns as if they were my very own.
If Someone in Your Family Has Been Charged With a Crime
As far as I am concerned, the arrest of a family member is a family law problem, even though it cannot be resolved in family court. I have represented many criminal defendants over the years, especially juveniles. The juvenile criminal justice system applies its own laws and standards, and navigating it requires experience in juvenile court, not adult criminal court.
A Client Speaks Out…
“I have used different lawyers throughout the last 7 years regarding my child and her other parent. James was very supportive in my endeavors and fought hard for the safety of my child. I wish that I was still in CT and could use him now as my attorney. He is a great lawyer and I highly recommend him.”

- You have the right to an family law attorney.

Under Connecticut divorce law, there is a mandatory 90-day waiting period beginning about two weeks after notification is served on the other spouse. Realistically, a divorce could take anywhere from four months to two years (in rare cases longer). The length largely depends on the amount of contentiousness that exists between the spouses over issues such as property division and child custody. It i important that you hire a skilled and proven Rockville family law attorney to help you through this time.
