I would have to agree with the other people who rated him poorly. This guy is very unprofessional. He doesn't answer calls, acts without consulting you first, pads charges and overbills you, and is never prepared or knows what's going on. He is very arrogant and callous especially considering the nature of family court that is not the type of lawyer you want working on case. He is only worried about his payment and not about fighting for what you want as a client. If you want a lawyer who doesn't know if you have a court date or not even after he himself cancelled it, this is your guy. If you want a lawyer who will charge you thousands of dollars, but will not get you a signed court agreement even though both parties are in agreement, hire him. if you want a lawyer who does not call you back, is not actively involved in your case, but charges you ungodly amounts of money to do nothing, this is definitely your guy.

Never calls you back. Unprepared, Seems disconnected and detached as a person. Doesn't or wont fight for what you want, and will try to pressure you to settle. Just in it for the paycheck, Had I known he was this way I would have hired someone else. Custody battles are bad enough, this guy just made it a nightmare. D

i hired this guy for a family case, all was good upfront he talked a good game. He is very unorganized and forgot about a hearing for the case. Then he never and I mean never returns your calls, I called him 20-30 times over 4 months. He is non agressive and just will go along with anything in court to get to his next case.
He cost me over $10,000 because he never presented the paperwork I gave him in court.
I think he could do a good job if he cared but its clear he doesn't
This guy basically took my money showed up in court for 5 minutes and never called me back

I endorse this lawyer. John has been a great teacher in the area of bankruptcy. After taking the Wisconsin State Bar Exam, I began working for the firm and shadowing John on bankruptcy matters. I have learned a lot from him in a short time.
