Review John Nachlinger

  • Divorce

    Posted by a client

    Divorce is scary and at times very confusing, and John was so patient with me every step of the way. I always felt like I was important and he always took the time to educate me on my decisions. I highly recommend John & Christina, they are a great team who are down to earth, personable and reasonable.

    John helped me through my very difficult divorce. He and his staff took the time to help me understand the process and to make informed decisions. When negotiations with my ex got tough, John worked tirelessly to help resolve the issues; even after hours. I knew going into this that a contentious divorce would not be cheap but John was a very effective advocate for me. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.

    I just finished a very long divorce and custody fight with my ex. John was with my every step of the way. I thought he was patient with me and helped me get a great result for me and my children. He really cared about my kids, which was really what I needed. Divorce is not cheap, but I really feel I got my money's worth with this guy. I highly recommend him and his firm.

  • Ignores you after $ collected

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    I have never written a negative review prior to this but feel it's very reasonable at this point.
    When I first hired Mr Nachlinger he promised so much in my initial consult, none of which he seemed to fight for once his retainer was collected. My case was divorce/custody. He doesn't reply to emails/calls even at times of severe emergency. After many attempts to have him contact me in an emergent situation, I got an irritated response from him where I felt I was just a nuisance, a number, and a paycheck to him. Then he charged me hundreds of dollars on my monthly statement which was titled "email correspondence with client." For what I ask?
    Bottom line, he didn't fight for me or my children and didn't seem to really care when we were in crisis. He is not an aggressive attorney by any means and seems to not care once his retainer is collected. I have paid him close to $20,000 and owe $6,750 more which I have to make extremely high monthly payments on. I cannot get him or anyone in his office to finish my case and finalize basic court papers. I live penny to penny to pay him while my children and I have nothing.
    Hiring him was the worst decision I made through out my divorce process.

    John R Nachlinger’s response: “Divorce is a very stressful process. Custody disputes are even more difficult. The author of this review never voiced any of these concerns to me or anyone in my office during the year we have represented her. In fact, I took her case at an extremely low retainer because she had financial difficulties and I thought she and her children deserved quality representation. I allowed her to pay her final bill at reasonable monthly rate of $500 and skip/delay payments when she was having financial problems. She did not incur anywhere close to $20,000 in fees, so I am unsure why that was written. She was extremely happy with our representation at every stage and voiced her appreciation for our services on the day of her divorce. Unfortunately, she has had issues post-judgment that have not been resolved in a manner satisfactory to her and has chosen to voice her displeasure through this review. We will never tell a client what they want to hear. We will tell them what they need to know, even when they do not want to hear it. I invite this client to contact us directly so that we can resolve any remaining issues to ensure she is fully satisfied with the services she has received.”
  • Dream Team!!

    5.0 stars

    John and Christina are the absolute Dream Team! They handled my defense in a case my ex brought against me for cohabitation. The case included Private Investigator evidence and 3 witnesses, all of which were there to testify against me. John and Christina were outstanding. One by one picking apart the witnesses and making the Private Investigators look foolish by asking questions that proved they had not done their case, could not remember facts they should know, and showed they did not provide any evidence of cohabitation.

    Their whole preparation in advance of the case proved they knew how to pick apart each accusation, make witnesses discredit themselves by changing their stories, and get virtually all of the Private investigators evidence thrown out!

    By far the best experience in what looked like the most challenging case going in. I cannot recommend them highly enough. I'd give 100 stars if I could.

  • Great Lawyer!

    John is a very caring, calming and thoughtful lawyer. In my divorce case his patience helped me stay grounded. His guidance in separating matters of the law versus emotions helped me through the tedious and sad process of legally ending a 28 year marriage. His legal advice kept me sound and solvent. And to both my and his surprise, John advised me through the remarriage process! Yes, my ex and I remarried five years later. A prenuptial agreement was an absolute and although he primarily represented me, my husband would say that he helped us both through the prenuptial process.

    John was extremely helpful, and made what is an extremely difficult process very smooth. He provided an excellent service and I would highly recommend. He was always responsive and communicated with me constantly, even when there was nothing new to report, which helped to keep my mind at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable in all areas, and was able to answer all questions.

    John represented me with great care. I cannot say how happy I have been with him and his staff. His bills have been reasonably and while I was not thrilled with the settlement, he always explained and pros and cons of the decisions I was making. I always felt that he cared about me. Everyone I know will get his card. I am particularly happy that he has started his own firm. Although he was the primary attorney at his old firm, I am glad he is getting the credit he deserves for his talents as owner of his own firm. You cannot go wrong with John. I am proud to not only call him my attorney, but my friend. I highly recommend him!
