He really did make a difference and takes pride in his work. His meticulous attention to detail and organizational skills really helped with my financials. He took the time to walk me through the process and really explain to me in detail what to expect and was straight forward and honest with me about my options. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer within Frederick County.

I hired Tim to help through a very tough and dangerous custody/divorce. He assured me it was an open and shut case, he told everything I wanted to hear he never came through. I rarely talked I him only his secretary, living out of state I was unable to afford very month airfare for court which he knew well in advance. He filed papers the day before hearings and did not provide evidence to dispute against my ex, there was death threats, he spent time in jail etc, this was never provided to the courts. I had to hire a new lawyer and greatly put myself in debt and almost went to jail because of his incompetence. I have filed a complaint at the bar and may be filing charges Tim put a minor child in grave danger with a abusive person..

If you are looking for an expert in family law and the court system you should call Tim. He was able to answer all my questions regarding my custody and divorce case and put my mind at ease about going to court. Thanks to him I have my kids living with me.

I needed legal help to see about setting up a business, Tim was really helpful and knew what he was doing. Highly recommend Tim Conlon to anyone who needs a lawyer.

I hired Mr. Conlon to represent me in my custody case. When I first met with him, he assured me that mine was an "open & shut case," and that there was no way my ex-husband would get what he was requesting. Tim was so confident, that he even assured me that my ex would be ordered to pay MY legal fees. Throughout the year-long process, it was extremely difficult to get a hold of Tim when I had questions. Multiple meetings were scheduled with both Tim and his legal secretary, and on numerous occasions they either did not show up at all, or they showed up 45 minutes late. Nothing was ever done in regards to my case until a few days before (sometimes even 1 day before) my hearings/trials. I provided Tim with HUNDREDS of e-mails from my ex that would have COMPLETELY PROVEN MY CASE. At the trial, Tim did not present a single e-mail! The only 2 pieces of evidence that he submitted were a transcript from my first trial, and his bill! Both of which were completely useless. HE DID NOT PRESENT A SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE IN MY DEFENSE, despite having numerous e-mails to prove that my ex was lying! In the end, not only did I not get awarded my legal fees, but I was ordered to pay my ex's legal fees AND ALMOST ENDED UP IN JAIL! In the end, I was ordered to pay more than $13,000 in legal fees for my ex and my children. That's ON TOP OF the $7,000 for Tim's fees! My child support was also reduced by 25%. For a single mother raising 4 young children, that's a major deal! I will likely end up having to file bankruptcy over all this. The worst part is, after filing a motion for a new trial on my behalf, Tim QUIT his job as my lawyer with NO EXPLANATION and NO DISCUSSION with me. He gave me no reason for why he was quitting, and did not have the decency to call me and tell me himself. He sent me a letter in the mail, like a coward. If you are looking for an attorney who is going to fight for you and put 100% effort into your case, do not hire Tim Conlon. His past experience is NOT indicative of his present capabilities.

I would highly recommend Mr Conlon on ALL custody cases. i started my case with no attorney but was referred to him by a professional. i researched Mr Conlon before ever calling his office, he has over 19 yrs experience in custody law & practice. Mr Conlon is highly recommended and revered by his associates in the courthouse as well as by law enforcement. PLEASE

Finding yourself facing the daunting task of fighting to see your kids is a scary proposition. In today's world, everything is a fight for us guys, regardless of anything you read. It's a sad state of affairs out there when you have to spend 2 years in litigation, over 40 hours in court, and countless lawyer meetings, counselor meetings, etc. But if you do, you want to have Tim Conlon in your corner. Not only is he a good lawyer, but he is proficient in acting as a pseudo counselor, because let's face it, this is a horrible situation to be in. Fighting your ex to just have fair and equitable time with your kids is a frustrating ordeal. Tim guided me through it and we finally won and got equal time. He is patient, kind and forceful when necessary. He's busy, tho, so the patience must be practiced on both sides! But you want a lawyer that's in demand! His staff is very knowledgeable also and I'm glad I made the decision to go with The Custody Place

I needed legal advice and went to see Tim, he put my mind at ease and was very helpful with my legal questions. I didn't actually need a lawyer but I didn't know that. He could have charged me a lot of money, other lawyers would have, but Tim didn't

I hired him to go back to court with my x and when i had office visit he told me everything i wanted to hear. His staff are did not know what they were doing. I called his office a ton of times because ge tells you that everything will be online for viewing. Nothing was ever except right before we were suppose to go to court. Everything my x was bringing me back for should have been trown out! I didn't make anymore money actually i made less money. She said i didn't pay half of copays for one she never gave them to me to pay and in the end she owed me more money in copays. I was told we were going to court to put motions to object in and we get to court he tells me we are going to negotiate! Oh my x also stated i wasnt paying daycare ( she was on state assistance until she married the guy she was having affair with) when she got dropped by the state i started paying 50% . Tim did not even realize he did not have any of my pay stubs until we went to court ( i saw him in office 2 months prior to court date) i told him multiple times i wanted to go in front of judge i have the kids almost 50% of tge time he refused my many requests and settled. Then he had the nerve to charge me 2500.00 + for 3 hours in court noooooo prep work. Doooo not waste your time and money !!! He does nothing he says he is going to do and if you don't agree with him he will settle for you whether you like it or not then charge you an arm and leg for NOTHING but a good screwing.

Mr. Conlon worked on my divorce and custody case. I have used other lawyers and found them bossy and expensive. One even charged me for "an attempted phone call" what even is that???
Mr. Conlon encouraged me to live my life and let him make life's square pegs fit in the round holes of the court. He was aggressive in my case with everyone except me. He is hard to get ahold of except on evenings and weekends because he is in court almost everyday but the judges and the people at the courthouse all knew him and obviously respected him. That also put me at ease.
You are lucky if you can use him.
