I hired Attorney Conlon years ago to handle a child support case and its initial paperwork against the state. As we are not all trained attorneys, he did not bother to explain things in normal terms, which created confusion. A few years after the filing of the paperwork and not hearing from the RI courts, I called and emailed to see the status of the case. His office assistant stated that the case was closed, although that meant nothing as there was no formal backup/support to back up their statement. I was expected to trust their word, although they did not specify anything. Fast forward a few years later and I get a court hearing for child support as I moved back to a blue state. I immediately contacted him and his office where he visited the Providence Court House said the case was closed from an administrative standpoint, but it was never closed via an adjudication process. Geez, I wished that was told to me in the first place vs the office staff simply stating that it was closed and that's it. I had to hire a local attorney in my state to help me with the case to ensure all steps were being followed in CT. Thankfully everything came out OK, but this process ended up turning into 6 years of agony and not knowing what the heck was going on. I'm sure if it were a divorce case where I dropped 200k, I'm sure the response would have been better. Regardless, you have a duty to properly represent your client, which includes answering questions and addressing concerns...many of which were not met.

I highly recommend Timothy Conlon. I think of him as my Guardian Angel. I went through an extremely difficult divorce where my children, ages 7 and 11, were alienated by their Father against me and my entire family to the point where they would not call me Mom, would not speak to me on the phone, and threw things at me in the presence of the counselor. At one point I thought I would never see my children again. After hiring 2 different attorneys who were not able to reunite me with my children, I saw an ad for Tim Conlon that said he dealt with difficult child custody cases. I prayed to God every day. Tim was able to appoint a new counselor to my case who helped reunite me to my children after 2 1/2 years of not seeing them. Tim got me joint custody and put motions in place to provide me additional time with my children. Tim believed in me and fought for me every step of the way. I am forever grateful to Tim Conlon. I have a close relationship with my children who are both in college now. God bless you Tim!

Tim and his team were the only lawyers I've worked with who understand and use Excel spreadsheets, online document sharing, and even projectors in court to more easily organize and help the judge, and even the forensic accountants -understand the facts of the case. The financials were complex, involving multiple currencies, countries and languages.
He also did the best and most thorough prep I've ever received before I had to go on the stand. I've been deposed several times before and wish he had prepped me then.
Lastly, we ended up with a pretty good resolution to the then two-year-long case. No divorce case ends perfectly, but I think this result was fair to both parties while not wasting too many more weeks in trial.

My case was complicated by the politics of the Family Court. Tim got to know the details of my case. He made sure that when a motion was brought to court on my behalf, he was prepared to win. He is respectful of the court. Gets to know the players of the case. He does his homework thoroughly. He does not give you false hope. He speaks straight up to you. I would absolutely recommend him. I wish I started my divorce out with him.

When Mr. Conlon filed the initial paperwork for my divorce he was pursuing child support, alimony, medical and reimbursement of legal fees however during the nominal he never followed through with any of this and as a result none of this became part of my decision pending entry of my uncontested default divorce. Three months after decision pending entry should have been done he did not do it and just left me hanging for months with no explanation of what he was waiting for. I had to hire another lawyer to finish what he started after already paying him $7,500 then come to find out that the child support , alimony, medical benefits and attorney reimbursement fees were never addressed by him at my nominal and henceforce left all that out of my divorce..what did I pay him for...nothing.. I had to then hire another lawyer to file the decision pending entry and final judgement because he did not feel like it. Mind you I owed him no money and had paid in full and was up to date. I wish I never went to him in the first place. I read that he was supposed to be a super lawyer in the divorce arena and that's why I hired him. He was a big disappointment and I wasted a lot of money hiring him. Hope this keeps others from making the mistake I made of hiring him.
