This is the harshest and most critical review of Lawyer John Conlon of Kalamazoo, MI that i can present. I hired Mr Conlon to represent me in a sticky family law matter several years ago and he said that he could strongly advocate my case as is involved child custody and residency legality with 2 different states. He was paid the $6000 retainer fee but as recently acquired court transcripts show, he utterly failed to strongly advocate on my behalf and bilked me out of the funds presented. Other attorneys in the area, after a few questions, could quickly ascertain whether I had a case or not and gave options on how to proceed. Mr Conlon did neither, but only assured me that he was "working on it" and when the retainer fees were expired, proceeded to ask for more, which is when I let his services go. I am taking the time to report this fraudulent and dishonest behavior and hope that no one else has to deal with this attorney who apparently refuses to do any work, all the while bilking you out of your funds. I have also submitted my complaint to the MI State bar and MI State Attorney and consumer advocacy groups
