    John is my "go-to" for juvenile delinquency cases in Dallas county. I've known John for 25 years and have seen the quality of his work. He is respected for his advocacy by both judges and lawyers. Most importantly, I've seen the impact John has on his young, and often troubled, clients.

  • William C. Meili

    I endorse this lawyer. I've known John McLauchlan for more than twenty years. We first met when he was the Juvenile Division chief for the Dallas County Public Defender's office. His breadth and depth of knowledge and experience in all things juvenile is unequalled. If you or someone you know has a juvenile law matter, contact Drake at your earliest opportunity.
