We have received many glowing testimonials from former clients, as well as from local counsel with whom we have worked or to whom we have provided expert analysis or testimony. 

Here are just a few of them:

5 Star Recommendation for Jeremy Morley: "Jeremy Morley did an excellent job in both advising and structuring a complicated prenuptial agreement for me. He explained clearly what could and could not be done in New York and he helped me craft a solution that was acceptable to all sides. I would whole-heartedly recommend him to any friend or family member"

A Superb International Family Lawyer: "Mr. Morley is an incredibly knowledgeable and bright attorney. I used him an an expert in a family law case to prove that California custody orders are not enforceable in Japan and the Court relied on his testimony to deny the opposing party's move away request.  His website is also a phenomenal resource that I continue to use to this day." 

Steady and Sure: "Jeremy was my legal guru in a multi-jurisdictional complicated divorce case. He quarterbacked the process communicating with legal advisors around the world...I felt throughout that Jeremy cared genuinely about my challenges."  

Not Enough Stars: "From the time I first became aware that my daughter might be facing a Hague suit, Jeremy provided exceptionally sound, clear counsel. Although the trial was not in New York and Jeremy could not actually represent my daughter, he continued to be available, providing expertise to her lawyer and tremendous support to me and my family, even calling us while on vacation. He took a personal interest in us, was willing to call colleagues on our behalf, and answered all queries very promptly with a great deal of sensitivity for our anguish. Anyone facing the horror of a Hague would be very lucky to retain Jeremy and wise to listen to him from the beginning."

He is the best: "Guys I am fighting a very complex battle internationally-Jeremy is the best he is thorough, and expert witness and has an impeccable reputation internationally and has a thorough understanding of international law.  Consider yourself lucky and blessed by god if you are in his guidance." 

Best Lawyer in the Field: "Mr. Jeremy Morley is the best attorney a parent can hire in a situation involving the difficult and emotional cases of 'parental abduction'. He was extremely comforting and professional. He went to bat for me on all fronts and I have full confidence that I hired the best lawyer in the world for my problems. I would feel very sorry for those parents on the other side whom he would go against. Definitely the most knowledgeable lawyer who is also cares for the children involved (usually they are completely forgotten by the warring parents). I genuinely felt he gave the needs of the child importance and voice to them. And he doesn't take advantage of desperate parents who find themselves in a very difficult situation. His fees are very reasonable and he is a good and caring lawyer, I felt. I was very thankful that I had his support and professional knowledge to assist me and my family through a very trying and difficult time."

"Jeremy, if only we'd listened to you!"

"Jeremy has been my lawyer for over 2.5 years...I had an extremely difficult and complex case...He put together a game plan for me in my family custody issues/planning and today I would not be raising my child in a healthy environment had it not been for his counsel.  He is extremely competent and professional and if you hire him, you will have a formindable team for the other side to reckon with."

"No words can describe the appreciation to you and your staff in assisting (my daughter). You will always be remembered.  May you continue to impact family law at such a global level."

"I can't thank you enough for your speedy attention to this matter...We certainly sent a strong message today thanks in large measure to compelling affidavit material."

"Hi Jeremy, thanks very much for today's consultation. It was incredibly informative and insightful."

"Your advice worked like a charm...the children were turned over to my client and she was authorized to take them back to [her country]."

"I returned to New York with my 3 year old son from England following a Hague Convention initial telephone consultation with Jeremy Morley gave me the confidence that not only was he an expert, but his advice was totally honest, realistic, and clear. I knew what my options were and what to expect. For my personal situation he recommended his associate Anne Glatz to take on my case...I now have full custody and permanent relocation to the UK. Throughout what has been the most difficult and lonely time in my life, having someone I could trust has been invaluable for not only for me, but for my family waiting in England. I have not once doubted her dedication, professionalism, and expertise in all aspects of child law and international custody and relocation."

"Your service and expertise is on a level all its own.  You are the unparalleled expert in international child custody issues!"

"I consider you as one of the most brilliant international/family law minds of UK and USA" (from a top family lawyer).

"I thought you would be very interested to know that we had a complete victory.  The court was very persuaded by your testimony and is totally prohibiting international travel until the boy reaches 18...My client is very grateful to you as well." 

"I'd like to thank both of you again...for all your excellent work...If we are successful in persuading either court to grant a stay of the custody order, it will certainly be in large part due to the strength of the declaration you were able to provide us on short notice."

"Your blog today, Strategic International Divorce Planning, is absolutely brilliant.  It is by far the most comprehensive and incisive rendition of the subject.  Needless for me to say, it also conveys the exceptional depth of your knowledge and skill."

"Thank you again.  Mr. Morley brought me enormous peace during the worst days of life.  I will never forget that."

"I thought you did a fabulous job, and feel that you turned out to be the only expert that the Judge listened to on any level..."

"Words cannot express the gratitude you have shown and advised me with!  I am glad the Judge could see the situation clearly."

"The judge issued an order...I thank you very much for the amazing work you did with such short notice. It has been a true support to deal with you and your firm in this short but stressful time. I felt listened to and protected, and assisted with great professionality."

"S and the babies got on the plane.  Thank you so much.  It is a miracle.  Thank you so much for being an amazing advocate for S.  Thank you thank you thank you so much!"

"Your report and testimony were found to be instrumental for the court to decide the custody and visitation.  I have no words to express my gratitude for the help and support extended by you.  I truly appreciate it."

"I am writing to thank you for your appearance today and for your wonderful testimony...The Judge ruled in my favor and did not allow my ex-wife to travel with our daughter...The Judge spoke very highly of you and your testimony in his closing comments, I certainly feel your testimony made the difference to the overall outcome. My parents and I want to thank you for helping me keep my daughter in America."

"As so many days passed I still couldn't believe what happened to me.  And I am soooooo lucky that I can have my son with me now, I almost lost him forever!!!  And I am so lucky that I have best lawyer that helped me...I really want to say a truly thank you for all the things you have done to let me get my son back, and all the words you told me as a father which you don't have to...I appreciate it."

"Nobody understands the subject of Hague child abduction law better than Jeremy Morley and [associate]. They are the foremost experts in this area and practise the law with high integrity, conviction and success. These are the people you want on your team if you ever find yourself involved in a Hague trial, no one else."

"Thank you again for all the professional help you gave me and I am sure you can greatly help my friend ---- !! I totally understand the pain she's having now, and I hope she can have her kids back to her asap!!"

"Simple words cannot describe how Mr. Morley's experience and thorough knowledge in the subject of international law helped me get back my children to the U.S.A.  Now I am a very happy father enjoying every moment with my kids.  Guess what?  Now my wife and I are in the path of complete reconciliation with kids around both of us!" 

"Bottom line, we won and the girls are staying home where they belong.  Your opinions were central to our success and my client asked that I thank you for all that you did for her and her family.  I, too, am very thankful."

"Jeremy Morley is an excellent attorney and a kind person. I contacted Jeremy after five months of shock, insecurity and disorientation. After only minutes into our conversation, I felt Jeremy knew what we needed to do. Jeremy was always available, even when a European attorney could only work with him on the 4th of July weekend. Thanks to Jeremy, a bad situation is behind me, and I have no regrets. I 'won' so I can go forward living comfortably."

"Jeremy, We want to let you know how incredibly important your help was to us. The case was finally resolved last week, and it would not have happened without your help. Your affidavit was extremely persuasive and changed the entire complexion of the case. Our lawyers and the mediator said it was the most difficult case they had ever dealt with. Had you not helped us so much, I am sure we would have been exposed to terrible risk. My goodness, we were desperate, and a man whom we only knew through the internet reached out and helped to lift us out of a treacherous situation. We will always be very grateful. We will never be able to repay you for how much you helped us."

"Jeremy, I have successfully relocated.  I have to tell you, that without your assistance, guidance and assistance in preparing my thought process for dealing with the situation, I would be in a very different place right now. Thank you so much for your careful guidance.  I hope you find your work meaningful to you, because the work you have done with me has changed the outcome of my life and my babys in the most positive direction I could have asked for."

"Jeremy, I appreciate your efficient and professional efforts in helping us preparing our international prenuptial agreement. Thank you very much also for always being there to answer my questions and offering advice in the entire process from initial consultation to final execution."

"Thanking you for all your hard work, advice and most of all your personal touch. You are truly a kind hearted and lovely person.

"We were all very grateful that your presence before the judge made the difference in our case. I hope all mothers and families could have the same opportunity to be defended by you, the very best attorney and a wonderful person. We will never have enough words to thank you for your kindness."

"The complex Hague legal battle has been won!  I greatly appreciate your professionalism in assisting me win my case.  I would not have been able to navigate the stormy international skies without your expertise!"

"I contacted Mr. Morley at the lowest point of my life being the surprised respondent in an international Hague child abduction case.  Within minutes of talking to Mr. Morley I felt better and knew I was in good hands.  Throughout the year long case Mr. Morley went way beyond the call of duty, was totally professional, was responsive and was the absolute leader of a complex case spanning multiple states and countries.  He was prompt and at times worked literally round the clock to ensure I had the best representation.  He was so thorough and knowledgeable with up to date and accurate cases seemingly right at his fingertips.  Mr. Morley immediately responded to any and all of my questions and numerous concerns.  Thanks to Mr. Morley I won my case and it is not an exaggeration to say that he is a life saver!"

"I came to Jeremy Morley with a unique problem: how to relocate to Tokyo, Japan as a single father of two boys, and as an American.  My job prospects were significantly better in Japan than in the U.S., but I was unsure how as a non-Japanese I could raise my sons in a nation with a such vastly different approach to child custody.  Jeremy Morley gave me timely, expert advice about structuring my divorce in a way that made this possible.  He introduced a me to an important expert witness for my divorce case. After the divorce, he wrote an opinion regarding Connecticut law for use in Japanese court.  On the basis of my experience with his deep knowledge of Japanese legal issues and his high quality, professional service, I would recommend him to any expatriate in Japan seeking legal advice concerning international divorce."

"I have to tell you that my contact with you has been an inspiration. Your advice and help is priceless to me. I am a doctor and I see a lot of people and I provide services to them. This situation is making me take everything a lot more to heart in my wanting to offer the best and most effective advice just like you helped me."

"Jeremy was knowledgeable about the complexities of international marriages. He understood both the technical 'legal' aspect as well as the prevailing interpretation of the law abroad. In addition he brought a common sense approach that helped to set expectations without being biased. The advice was sincere, accurate and concise."

"Jeremy, thank you for expeditious and excellent work on my case!!"

"I contacted Jeremy Morley in regard to my pending Hague Convention case in the United Kingdom where I was trying to have my daughter returned to her home in Connecticut.  I contacted Mr. Morley to assist in the development of my case a short time prior to when the hearing was scheduled to take place in London - I was concerned that I would only have one chance at getting my daughter returned home and I did not want to make any mistakes.  I found Mr. Morley to be experienced, dependable, and knowledgeable of the essential areas that had been addressed and still needed to be developed in order to better ensure a positive outcome.  I believe that without Mr. Morley's invaluable assistance and his serving as a liaison between myself and my solicitors overseas, I would not be in the positive position that I now stand in regard to my daughter finally coming home."

"Mr. Morley. The only thing I can say is thank you.  Thank you for all that you have done for me.  You believed in me when no one else bothered to try.  You have made me believe that there are hopes for my future...There are no words that can express that sort of gratitude."

"I suffered a terrible shock when my wife declared she was keeping our child in the UK and would not be returning to our home in the US. Since she was unwilling to return with our child, I had to take immediate action. After an internet search for help with child abduction, I called Jeremy Morley's phone number. Within one hour, he had prepared a detailed letter to my wife explaining the dire consequences of her actions and within the next 48 hours, wife and child were back in the US...I am eternally grateful for the speed and advice I received from Jeremy..."

"Dear Jeremy, it has been a gratifying experience to have been acquainted with you. We appreciate your professional excellence in the handling of the case."

"Thanks for the new life!"

"Jeremy, please accept our heartfelt gratitude.  Your professionalism is exemplary; as far as we're concerned, you are THE authority for international family matters in the world.  Thank you.

"Jeremy Morley is perhaps THE world authority on international family / custody / relocation issues. He maintains the highest standards of professionalism, is obviously brilliant, and has an incredible wealth of information at his fingertips which he so efficiently processes to tackle even the most complex of problems. If you ever want a 'go-to' guy in the field, look no further than Jeremy."

"Jeremy is a top-notch divorce attorney, well-versed in the intricacies of international divorce. I highly recommend him to my colleagues, because he helped me map out an appropriate strategy and was always a consummate professional throughout the whole process. His response time was timely and his billings were reasonable."

"I would especially like to thank Jeremy Morley, Attorney at Law, for his informative and empathetic consultation.  I believe his work is truly admirable and his effort to get the word out was what brought this matter to public attention."

"Thank you for all your help when we needed it.  My grandchildren were successfully prevented from being taken out of the country and their parents are sharing their custody.  Again, thank you.  You gave us comfort and we will not forget it."

"Your testimony yesterday was BRILLIANT!"
