I hired him to represent me in an uncontested divorce. He passed my file to one of his employees, a disbarred attorney. He had no idea what was going on with my case. He showed up to court unprepared and unaware of what is going on with my case.
The great reviews about him seem bogus.
When he found out I had an inheritance, he turned my simple divorce into a very high conflict divorce. He is a high conflict clown who is old and incompetent. I hired him and followed HIS advice. I lost my children and I don't blame them. I am trying to regain a relationship with my children unsuccessfully.
If I had to do my divorce/custody all over again, I would have not hired him. I lost my inheritance and my future with my children. They hate me and I blame McCabe for my losses.
John "Jack" McCabe was invaluable in advising me on sensitive business matters. His years of expertise, and inate negotiation skills helped me to resolve the matters quickly and thereby saving thousands of dollars, plus a potential lawsuit. Jack specializes in family law and has an outstanding results in that area but he is also an excellent advisor in business matters and I would highly recommend him!
I hired John "Jack" McCabe for my divorce and I am so thankful I did. First he worked with me to best position myself for the legal battle that was to come (and I had alot to lose). With so much experience, his advice was invaluable with potential losses dramatically reduced. As the divorce proceeded, he has been responsive, supportive, aggressive, compassionate and careful with his billings. I highly recommend him, the best! Christy
I hired this attorney to represent me for what I thought was a simple uncontested divorce and child custody case. He turned my simple divorce into a high conflict case which ended up costing me an enormous amount of money and wasted time. He is the king of ex-parte to simply harass the opposing party. He would convince me that this is the only way to go to get things done. He lost each ex-parte he brought in front of the judge. He wasted my time and money. He cost me my relationship with my child.
Jack McCabe is a crook. Instead of making the divorce transaction quick and swift, he would egg me on. I regret ever hiring him. I did not only lose my spouse, I lost my children and all my money. When I ran out of money, he did not want to have anything to do with me.
Go anywhere else.
Jack was my attorney throughout my divorce. I could not have done any better with anyone else. He is the type of lawyer who doesn't put you on a clock from the moment you walk into his office. He was honest and told me everything I could expect. His experience and knowledge is vast. I read about the fact that he was discliplined years ago. It was for something quite minor and this would never deter me in hiring him. In fact, I've recommended Jack to many people and they have all had good results with him.
Jack helped me gain access to a disabled relative who had been moved and cut off from the family by a conservator, I recently returned to Jack for another family matter, and would receommend him for any divorce or custody issue.
I have known Jack for a number of years and he has had to represent me on several occasions. He is very forthright and really eased my anxiety. I would recommend him over and over again!
I have known Jack McCabe for over 24 years. He has served my family well for business and personal affairs and I trust him implicitly and would recommend him highly
