Mr. McLaughlin was appointed by the court to represent my ex-wife and me on a trustee sale of personal property and real-estate. Unfortunately from the very beginning of the process it was clear Mr. McLaughlin was inexperienced and lack knowledge of the process. Throughout the eleven month ordeal Mr. McLaughlin failed to answer messages, give direction, provide information, and did not address the expiration of a contract. When confronted with my concerns he responded unprofessionally with sarcasm. His negligence cause additional fees and expenses. I would not recommend Mr. McLaughlin for any legal matters.
