Failed to show for a custody hearing. No show and no answer to my calls. Later blamed his "day planner". His office is or was across the street from the Wheaton courthouse. Later in the case I find out Mr. Stock talked directly with my ex without my knowledge and not through her attorney! When I confronted him about this his reply was " You two need to quit fighting". I hired him because we couldn't and don't. Took one more retainer knowing case was over. This guy is worthless. I believe he mentioned a son perhaps following in his footsteps. Watch YOUR step if you see the name Stock!

John P. Stock represented me in a case against a former employer in the broadcast industry, who was threatening to sue me for breaching a non-competitive clause of my employment agreement. Mr. Stock lost the case by not knowing the relevant law and negotiated a settlement agreement that would have been injurious to me by barring me from working in my field for two years and by forcing me to give up a minority stake in the company I co-founded. Consequently, I dropped Mr. Stock and hired a Chicago attorney who won a $10,000 settlement against my former employer for breach of contract. No, I would not hire Mr. Stock under any circumstances.

He carefully reviewed my case and made several insightful and helpful recommendations. I would highly recommend him.
