He led me to believe he had a plan of action but didn't follow any plan day in court. No court reporter was ordered even though he said he ordered one. He, alone chose to continue this important case without one. He used no discovery given to him. No bank statements, no tax returns. He had no important exhibits on him! He threw my 2 year case. Two months later, judges order was so called "lost in the mail", I found out about the order 18 days late. I told him I wanted a copy of the envelope when the order would eventually make its way to his office. He said "No, it's lost, maybe they sent it to my old office." I checked with judges clerk, it was mailed to his office. Rarely, are things lost in the mail. Jon misled me to believe he was on my side but in reality, he is the only one he cares about. My exs council was pleased with my lack of representation, lack of discovery that supported the reason why I was there. The judge at fee hearing said she thought the council was together on this and she had to go with my ex's council because he was the only one who did child support calculations, Jon sent none. This is a true story, this actually happened and I would not recommend anyone to use him. He should be barred for what he did to me. I wonder if hiding an order is obstructing justice?

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. McLaughlin over the last two years. I hired him to handle a difficult custody battle. He made a very difficult and emotional time in my life as smooth and easy as possible. He was always there for me and informed me about my options and always kept in touch. I was overwhelmed by his professionalism and the way he kept his cool even when the other attorney was trying to get a reaction from him. I found him to be a calming force and would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, caring and trustworthy attorney. Can't say enough good things and I am forever grateful. Excellent job and will hire him for any future needs!

Jon Mclaughlin gets results and inspires confidence. I have collaborated with him in serving clients and referred other clients for dissolution and adoption matters. Clients respect his command of the law, both content and process. And he gets the job done.
