  • Stephen F. McDonough

    I have known John for many years. We first met while representing opposing parties in a divorce case. John does excellent work for his clients, and conducts his cases in a highly professional and ethical manner. To me, he is a great example of how lawyers should conduct themselves. John is well-respected by his peers and court personnel. If I am not able to handle a case due to a conflict, John is someone that I refer to without reservation because I know that the person will receive legal representation by a skilled and seasoned professional - who also happens to be a good person.
