Hired Mr. McClintock to mediating my divorce, took 2 months for him to file for divorce, which was filed incorrectly. He was supposed to be the mediator nit the attorney of record for me. I hired another lawyer to write up the agreement and help with all the paperwork since Mr. McClintock did nothing for 4 months, cost me $1,500. 4 months went by and he filed paperwork incorrectly charged me $1800 for re-writing the agreement in his letter head. Finally hired anther lawyer, divorce was finalized in 2 months, and it was a $1,000 cheaper. Please do not hire this lawyer.

I want to thank Attorney Doug McClintock for his help in winning my litigation, at the beginning I was very worry and stressed but Mr McClintock took care of me, he was professional, responsible, honest, fair on his fees and best of all he always answer my calls during this process. I recommended him to my family and friends the same way he was recommended to me Thanks for your help and support.

I hired this attorney to prepare a QDRO for MY 401K and Cash Pension division.
My X owes me child support arrears, child health care reimbursement costs, 401k loan reimbursement and credits for his small retirement he cashed in after the separation. I asked McClintock to include these deductions in the QDRO and paid extra for this task. A week later he emailed the X and me and requested we sign the cash pension QDRO. I noticed the offset costs or deductions were not included. I emailed McClintock and said I had questions and would call him shortly. He said to email him my questions. When I asked him why he did not include the deductions he said they could not be included in the QDRO. I called three QDRO attorneys including my plan administrator and one family law attorney. They all disagreed and said it could be done with a cash pension. McClintock also said he sent in the cash pension draft QDRO for pre-approval but my plan administrator said they did not receive it. When I called the plan administrator again they said they did receive it but it listed my X as the participant and not me. In addition the plan administrator received it on May 21, 2015. I fired him on May 13, 2015. Since he appeared to be clearly incompetent and not representing my best interests I fired him. I was being generous and requested a 75% refund and he refused. He kept stating he completed one of the two QDRO’s so only approximately 50% was due for QDRO preparation. FYI - A QDRO is not completed until both parties sign it and the court approves it. He had the wrong participant named and I could have lost tens of thousands in deductions!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve filled a small claims case and submitted a complaint with the California Bar Association.

I had a very complex QDRO situation from my divorce of 17 years ago that Mr. McClintock helped get resolved. It was also complicated by my employer who is notoriously difficult to work with in these situations. Mr. McClintock was steadfast and committed to getting the QDRO resolved in a satisfactory manner. I greatly appreciate his professionalism and exceptional focus on satisfying his client.

Douglas McClintock handled my QDRO in a very efficient manner.
My actual divorce was handled by another attorney who never even mentioned the need for a QDRO. Just after filing my divorce with the court, I learned that I needed a QDRO in order to apportion my 401k and that my original attorney did not handle QDROs .
I found Mr McClintock via an internet search and spoke to him on the phone where he carefully explained the QDRO process to me. I found him to be quite knowledgeable about family law as well.
I wishI had hired Douglas McClintock to handle the entire divorce as he was very professional and mindful of the cost to me.

Mr. McClintock was very knowledgable about my specific retirement and he sought after benefits that were rightfully mine. He was timely and efficient. He spent more time than anticipated on my case and I really appreciated that.

Thanks to this attorney for being a specialist in the QDRO field. He is also a pension attorney which was beneficial in the settlement.

I was so fortunate to find this Family Law attorney and QDRO expert Douglas McClintock. He also was a pension attorney and I feel he helped me so much with my divorce and with a major piece of my divorce which was my QDRO. He spent time explaining the process to me and was very efficient helping me. I wish all attorneys were this kind and thoughtful.
