John D'Oneill came recommended to our family many years ago by another family attorney in New York (I'm unsure of their relationship).  For years he charged my family an astounding and unreasonable amount, billing hourly for work that was mediocre, never completed, and/or questionable at best. He made a VITAL MISTAKE on a deed that was meant to be created for a transfer of property (he miss-wrote the date causing the transfer to take place EIGHT YEARS after it was supposed to).  Because his employer (my grandmother) is extrememly kind-hearted and lives in England, she chose not to change lawyers long after she was recommended to.

Then over the last five years John D O'Neill was asked to help prepare a transfer of property from my Grandmother's name (a non-resident alien) to three of her Grandchildren's (all U.S. residents).  Mr. [continued below]....

..... O'Neill STALLED this process FOR YEARS, charging my grandmother thousands of dollars for services never rendered and in the end never did what was asked of him and then REFUSED TO RETURN my 90 year-old grandmother's MONEY.  Eventually I found an attorney friend do make up the Transfer of Deed for a couple hundred dollars and she was able to complete IN TWO WEEKS what Mr. O'Neill "TOOK YEARS" and charged thousands of US Dollars to.

This man is an example of those that give practitioners of law a bad name in this country.  Stay away from him at all costs, he will tie you up in legal fees and extend the time it takes to do anything by an unreasonable amount.  We call these kind of people "thieves" where I come from.

Not What I Experience

AUTHOR: Oceanrun - ()

John D O'Neill has been my Real Estate Attorney for at least 7 years; he has completed Closings, evictions, litigation, and provides us general Real Estate advice as I am Property Manager and Realtor in south Florida.  My experience is one of satisfaction; his firm's documents & filings have always been correct and ontime, we have been to court several times in the past two year because of tenant issues, each time we prevailed.  No small feat in today's Landlord/Tenant proceedings.

Have not experienced billing that looked unusual; if anything I have experienced first hand the opposite.  One of our owners needed to have an eviction done; once the tenant was served papers, they decided it was time to move.  John refunded their money to them because further court action was not called for.  They too live far away; in California, and have used John for other real estate advice & transactions since that time.

In closing, John O'Neill is someone I know & trust; not only in my business dealings, also in my personal life and for that I am grateful.
