John handled a tense custody case for me recently and did an amazing job. He was given very little time to respond to an action and I was so impressed by the way he and his staff pulled together to do the seemingly impossible. John has a perfect blend compassion and passion in front of a judge. I was touched by the classy manner in which the firm associated with my close friends and family in a time of distress. I would whole-heartedly recommend John Jones as he is articulate, efficient, empathetic, tough and as a bonus... his humor softens a tense situation.

John Jones has been my attorney for over ten years. To say that he is a good attorney would be a tremendous understatement. He is a leader among professionals.
I retained John to file my divorce appeal. My divorce had been botched by two prior attorneys. John immediately answered my questions and took charge of the situation. My case was very complicated. It included a settlement for my portion of a business. His legal expertise and professional manor proved invaluable during the successful negotiations.
Over the years he addressed many of my concerns such as childcare agreement enforcement, and child care expenses. John was compassionate and understanding. I felt as if he was a shield protecting me from all the aggression and vindictive behavior exhibited by my ex-husband.
John also filed charges for nonpayment of court required payments toward my share of the business. All my questions and concerns were addressed immediately by him and his wonderful staff. He was successful collecting these payments.
Recently, the business was sold. John was directly responsible for collection of my remaining portion of the business. During this whole process John responded to all my questions. Some responses were immediate in the form of a text.
My decade long professional relationship with John is one of success and friendship. I would recommend him to anyone looking for possibly the most capable attorney in the city.

John was the third attorney to take on my divorce case. My first 2 attorneys were too incompetent to be able to deal with my contemptuous EX (who was in Proper Person and thought was above the law.), to understand the complexity of the assets and business holdings that needed to be split, and the child custody battle. I had to find an attorney who could understand these basic things to me but not to most attorneys I would imagine. I paid over $25,000.00 between the first 2 attorneys and they weren't worth a penny of it. I hired John and he won every trial, EH, and even had my ex sent to jail for not following the Decree. He always returned my phone calls and kept me apprised of my bill and gave me exact billing breakdown. When I saw the previous post about that not being done, I can guarantee all new clients that it is done. I do know what I am paying for. I do know how many hours it took for him to handle a hearing or to do the background work on my case. He never hid a thing from me and I was so relieved that he understood it so very well that I didn't have to fight my case against my attorney again. John understands high net worth individuals, their needs, and their absolute need to have their finances understood and defended by him. I cannot give him enough praise as to how he has handled my case, the very fair amount of money that I have had to pay him, and the results that I have gotten are that I won every single time I went to court and John litigated on my behalf. I have never lost a hearing or a trial with John representing me. I think that the reviews left over the years, John's personal reputation amongst his peers, and my experiences with him over the last 3 years are enough to convince me that I have the best attorney possible for my case. John also has compassion and the ability to make you feel more at ease, calm, and peaceful while going through one of the hardest times in my life. He is fantastic. His knowledge of the law and the rules of conduct are impeccible. I would like to see him as a Family Court Judge in the future. He would be very good at it as he does understand the law and to a point more so than the judge usually does. I give him 5 stars all the way around!!!!

John supported me in my divorce with my ex-wife; there were children involved based on a long-term marriage with alot of emotion.
Through the process John was always accessible, a great listener, knowledgeable of the court system and represented the needs of my family fairly.
In the end, I had to go back to court several times and he assisted me in this process.
I feel that since he knows all the details of my life actually very close to John and thankful for his support over the years.

Mr. Jones is a tremendous lawyer with a breadth of knowledge in his field that sets him apart from the rest of the divorce/family practice attorneys. I work in the legal field and have years of experience with attorneys and when it came time to handle my divorce, Mr. Jones was the only attorney I wanted working on my case. He is diligent, determined and focused on the issues at hand. During a time of personal turmoil, I felt that he was my solid rock working to ensure that I was protected and well represented. I highly recommend Mr. Jones!

I was introduced to Mr. Jones through a friend, and was could not be happier with the progress my case has taken. As a matter of fact, he took over from another attorney and for the first time, I finally feel to be in competent hands. Not only has he kept me informed every step of the way, but has gone out of his way to explain each process.
Not only is Mr. Jones a paragon of efficiency with paperwork, but you should see him in the courtroom! You don't want to be on the other side if you are up against John Jones. He is truly a master.
I would recommend him to anyone, and have personally recommended him to anyone who needs an excellent lawyer.

John never returned phone calls. John never kept me informed. Black & Lobello will not give me a billable hours break down for his hours billed, after asking many times. I had to set up getting my husband served divorce papers in California, as his office would not respond. I almost lost the restraining order that I also got on my own. John made inappropriate jokes while we were in court with my exhusband. A simple phone call to my ex husbands attorney could have ended the situation in a matter of weeks. Instead my divorce took a year. There we no children. It was a nightmare.

John has handled both my divorce and custody battle. He has provided me with honest, trustworthy legal representation. He is a top notch attorney who won me the right to leave the state with my children. He operates at a level of honesty, integrity and thoroughness that is hard to find in this day and age. I would highly recommend hiring him for any family court matters.

John Jones handled my case with the utmost in care and urgency. Very tough on the opposition and willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.

Perhaps this review/endorsement carries with it a different perspective because I was not a client of Mr Jones, but rather a colleague with the pleasure of litigating Family Law cases in Las Vegas against him, and even sometimes together as co-counsel, for about 10 years now. In a very emotional and trying environment it takes a strong professional to remain focused and dedicated to the zealous representation of his client. John is that type of attorney and I would hire him myself if I unfortunately ever found myself in need of these services. Although an all around stellar attorney, John is particularly knowledgeable with regard to business issues and valuations, both big and small. It is wthout hesitation that I strongly endorse him as a colleague, a professional, a peer and a person!

Mr. Jones is a very honest and highly experienced attorney. He is respected by seasoned and well known attornies. I hired Mr. Jones as my Attorney for my divorce / custody, and relocation request to another state. I was told Mr. Jones was the BEST attorney I could hire, and he certainly was the best. He represented my best interests always, he defended my case as if it was his own life at stake, he was compassionate, and protective of me in and outside of the Court room. He is experienced, honest, intelligent, articulate, professional, and diligent. He is always prepared and takes the time to know his client. I have worked with many attornies in Las Vegas through my career and Mr. Jones truly is at the top
of the list as one of the BEST attornies I have observed in and out of the Court room. I placed my life in his hands and that requires a signficant amount of trust and he was successful in accomplishing all my goals.
Mr. Jones is rutheless when it comes to advocating your best interests and that of your family needs..

Mr. Jones really shines in the courtroom. His level of prowess is unsurpassed in family court. You could pay a lot more money and get a lot less lawyer. Mr. Jones' fees are very reasonable for his level of skill. The fact that he is certified by the State Bar in the area of Family Law is evident. He has won every trial and every post trial motion for me. I am very satisfied with his services and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him for your family law case.

Outstanding support, guidance and access in ensuring my case was handled appropriately. He was very helpful in protecting me and my rights as a parent. I would recommend him to everyone.

I had the pleasure of using the services of John Jones. John has the highest degree of integrity and passion for his clients and their families.
John has the rare blend of being compassionate to his clients; while tenacious in the courtroom to ensure their needs are voiced and met. John’s skill set of being one a very select few of Board Certified Family Law Specialists is reason enough to hire him. However, his understanding of the complexities in the real world and business world, truly make him one of a kind.
John not only represented me and my family, he became a friend. I would recommend him to anyone.

John helped me handle a very difficult divorce. His level of professionalism, empathy, and understanding was amazing. His knowledge, work ethic, and ability is what makes me recommend him to anyone I know. I consider myself lucky to have hired such a proficient attorney and would recommend him to anyone I know.

I was referred to attorney John Jones for my child custody case. Specifically, the woman that referred me said “you need to call John Jones. He is an incredible litigator and a bull dog in the court room”. This was indeed an accurate, if not understated, referral. I first met John nine months ago when he and his partner, Michele LoBello took on my child custody case. The specifics of my case were such that my ex-husband of over 10 years with whom I had shared joint custody with had relocated out of state and was now trying to gain primary custody of our daughter so that he could move her out of state to live with him. Since that time, there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think of John and Michele with an eternal debt of gratitude and sincere admiration. It was because of them and their wonderful team that I have my daughter with me today. John and Michele were a highly effective team that complemented one another very well. John proved himself to be an extremely knowledgeable and skilled attorney who has a masterful understanding of the Rules of Evidence. John argued my case and did so with incredible confidence, passion and conviction. He devoted himself to truly understanding all the details of my case and that understanding was clearly apparent throughout the entire litigation process. John had the arduous task of learning the details of over ten years of history, and then presenting to the Court all the critical aspects of those ten years in a concise, succinct and convincing manner. John expertly did just that in such an accurate and articulate way that it was as if he had lived it himself. John’s tenacity and devotion to my case ultimately led us to victory. John committed himself to staying one step ahead of opposing council at all times, and he did just that. John’s abilities as a litigator were highly impressive and moving. He exemplified integrity, and I felt an intense sense of pride being represented by him. John’s fiery litigation talents were wonderfully balanced by a very kind, caring and sensitive side. He provided me with often needed reassurance and support and honesty that quelled my fears when things got rough. I don’t know what I would have done without John and will be forever grateful for his time, energy, passion, commitment and drive. This was such a huge victory! I thank you John…from the bottom of my heart…I thank you! I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge other wonderful members of the Black and LoBello staff that were invaluable along the way: Stephanie MacKeen, Sharon Hill and Cheryl Berdahl. I am so deeply appreciative of all your hard work and continued support.

John is a Nevada Board Certified Family Law Specialist and his expertise, dedication and professionalism are second to none. He will do everything possible to keep your case out of court, while attempting to reach a reasonable resolution. If litigation becomes necessary however, he is the attorney you want fighting for you and your children in court. I have seen many family lawyers in action over the years, and there is truly no comparison. John is the best of the best.

Mr. Jones was not my first attorney, but, I wish that he had been. My family law case was, (and continues to be), quite challenging. 30 court appearances in 5 years, including many trials. John performs at the highest possible level all the time. He is knowledgeable and aggressive. He knows the law and he knows how to get things done. He never misses a beat. His court appearance is outstanding. His argumentative skills are effective, professional, and they get results. If you want the best, I highly recommend attorney John Jones.

John is awesome. He is a shark! Not only is he knowledgeable, but he cares about his clients. I've got to say, he is full of himself, but that's becuase he's earned the right to be. I suffered a stressfull divorce from an abusive husband. John stood by me physically and proffesionally to protect me from any further harm. His assistant Kelly is caring and a definite asset to his team. John not only assisted with my divorce, but also with, child custody and non-payment of property settlement. John is awesome!
