    Ethics matter met with unpreofessionalism

    Responded back and forth by email and never provided actual written proof of the work done in the form of a formal report of his opinion even when it was requested. At first the explanation was that it was sent attached to an email and that the email couldn't be retrieved and then an explanation that the office computer server crashed and all was lost was provided. At this point doubt was cast as to whether an opinion was rendered based on MY specific case because when pressed for a response the final email opinion was VERY generic and contained no facts to MY case. It also felt like the original work requested was not completed especially when he asked that the entire file be re submitted to him so he could take a look at it again. He also failed to provide a formal written bill of how the retainer, albeit a flat fee, was calculated. Sure he quoted his vast years of experience and his hourly rate but no dates and hours and minutes spent in formulating the opinion as is customary in the legal profession. Further more it seems that either the firm throws hard copy records away after they are scanned into the computer or he lost all of the documents that were sent because requests for a return of hard copy papers submitted were met with scepticiscm that they can be found.
    Finally when these questions and remarks were posed to the attorney he promptly offered a referral to another attorney.

    The best in his field

    I have been a client of Mr. McDonough for the past five (5) years and I have been provided with the utmost level of professionalism each and every time. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and an expert in his field and has provided extremely valuable advice to both me and my firm. I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal advice in the area of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.

    Great Attorney

    Chris has helped me out with multiple matters and has gotten fantastic results. He is very good at communicating with his clients and it definitely felt like he had my back throughout the process.

    He did a great job!

    From the moment I met Mr. Mcdonough, I knew I had hired the right man. Mr. Mcdonough was extremely thorough and his knowledge as to how my case would proceed was spot on. He was available whenever I needed him and made each and every appearance personally. His ability to steer my case in the right direction put me at ease throughout the course of the case. I would recommend Chris Mcdonough in a heartbeat

    Has your back

    Having a high volume matrimonial practice, matters do come up that have required me to appear before the Committee. He has always had my back. I endorse Chris, and have referred clients to him, and have never heard a negative word.

    Top- notch lawyer

    I have to say Chris McDonough is a wonderful lawyer. He is a no-nonsense, Old School type barrister who tells it to a client straight, no chaser.
    His fee was not cheap but it was well worth it.
    I would recommend Attorney McDonough to anybody. I know I got value for money with his efforts.

    ONCE YOU PAY HIM, HE IGNORES YOU

    Unresponsive attorney who doesnt answer phone calls or emails. Once he received his fee upfront, it was like pulling teeth just to speak to him.

    Chris McDonough

    I have used Chris for several different issues over the past 15 years or so. He I found him to be straight forward, honest and fair in his billing practices. He is a refreshing change from other attornies I have had to deal with in the past.
