Hey Guys, to whoever reads this message, I want to give you actionable insight to why you should use Tom. A lot of people make the mistake of allowing random "he was great, responsive, blah blah" junk to sway their opinions without even getting any kinds of real world examples to the important questions like...
Why should I use you instead of joe schmoe?
Why do I even need a lawyer? can't I do this myself?
Where do most clients fail to help their attorney's?
How do I know I am being realistic?
My situation was pretty intense. I was married, it sucked, I am out (the details are not important). The issue that I was having is that I thought I was smart enough to handle the divorce myself. I have been running my own companies since I was 19, and I thought I could sell a judge on my point with ease.
Unfortunately, my story was flippin nuts that I just made myself look like a crazy guy in my own writing. Not good...
After about 6 months of banging my had against the wall, getting motions stricken (taken off the record, also could be called a "Stupid Tax") I finally decided to get representation. I ended up in Tom's office and I explained the complex divorce case (included things like conspiracy and abuse) while he carefully listened and asked questions. "What outcome do you want?" "Why do you want this?" "Why is this in the best interest of your child" and other probing questions were used to get the best out of me.
Out of the lawyers I spoke to, Tom was the guy that truly wanted the best for what the situation provided. After 6 months of making an @** of myself, Tom brought the case to a settlement in like 6 weeks. I got a fair deal, and my daughter is better because of it.
What I also appreciate about tom is the fact that his CELL PHONE is on his business card. This is a HUGE DEAL because all of the problems while going through my divorce happened after work. This will most likely be the same for you.
If you want someone who will tell you the truth (even if it hurts), be available to talk to you during emergencies, and be able to cut through the BS to get a good deal, call Tom.
I found Mr. Mallon to be extremely helpful with my case. I would recommend him to friends and family.
Tom Mallon obtained a divorce for me. The divorce was very difficult and involved custody, child support, real estate and personal property. Mr. Mallon was very diligent getting all the details of my former spouse's property. Mr. Mallon discovered that my husband owned numerous antique cars, motorcycles, and boats which I was unaware of. He was very professional and kind. He always explained all the ramifications of the case to me. Most importantly he always returned my phone calls; even after hours and on weekends. Of all the other attorneys I've had, Mr. Mallon was by far, the best!
Mr Mallon handled my expungement case. Years ago when I was barely an adult I pled guilty to a minor infraction involving alcohol on Federal lands. My friends and I were drinking and drunk in a National Park where alcohol use was prohibited. I did not realize that my plea meant I was agreeing that I had been drinking and driving on a public roadway. Several years later a background check revealed this to a potential employer. After contacting Mr Mallon he was able to handle an expungement of my guilty plea and my PBJ conviction in Federal Dist Ct. It was pain free with only a minor amount of personal involvement. Now my record is clear of this incident.
It is our opinion there is presently something unexplained happening with this attorney. Initially he seemed well intentioned, but to say he is not responsive is an understatement. In our opinion he does not return telephone calls in a timely manner if they are returned at all. When important issues arose he left us, the client, in an absolutely unexplainable state of limbo. It is as if there are more important things to do than handle your case. We know the legal system is stressed by demands for reliable attorneys, however, if you need assistance you might do more research and avoid this pitfall. That is our honest opinion.
Mr Mallon failed to show up to a court date. When we called in inquire about where he was he didn't even know we were in court. Once he arrived to court he told two different stories regarding him being over an hour late. Obviously we lost that day. The judge was furious. When his actions in court was questioned, he became angry and quit our case. Then billed us for his time. I would not recommend Mr Mallon. He is not an honorable man.
I have referred to Tom multiple clients, inlcuidng family members, over the years. He is results oriented and very prfessional. He never underestimates his adversaries and will truly fight for his clients. Simply stated, he is an excellent lawyer.
Excellent attorney. Kept me informed and a pleasure to work with.
I'v use Tom for various cases, but one thing for sure he always came through.
Excellent attorney, always kept me informed and updated on my case.
