Former client
Mr. Hughes is excellent with complex financial family law cases. He substituted into my case at the 11th hour and did an awesome job at trial. I highly recommend Mr. Hughes if you are facing trial without an attorney. He can step in to your case and digest the financial aspects accurately and present them at trial.

Great
I'll bet you any sum that my ex-wife is the most difficult woman on planet earth... John did a fantastic job with an impossible woman. We averted court with John's excellent negotiation with opposing parties, and in pre-trial conferences before judges. John has the perfect combination of practical and technical counsel. I would trust John with your family matters... he did a fantastic job for me. John was able to show opposing counsel and my ex-wife, that their case was frivolous and that settling was best. Thanks so much John!
