I hired John back in 2018 to handle a case for me. I continued to pay as needed ( several thousands of dollars). This past December 2022 we we’re finally ready to go to trial. He sent emails letting me know when my trial date was. The following week I get an email stating that he had canceled my trial because he didn’t think we would win and all of the other persons lawyers had quit on her. She also moved to a different state (as if that had anything to do with me). He did contact the other party and said he could make it go away if she signed off on it. John also filed “with prejudice” meaning no other lawyer can ever file against the other party. When my wife (who is an estate lawyer) told John what he did was illegal, he said “well we both know it was but I thought it was the best thing to do”. We then asked would we get any money back and he said “No”. I truly think John has a great practice if you’re looking from a crooks prospective. That is: get as much money as he can from his client, then cancel the case right before trial, keep all the client’s money and do the same to the next client. I spoke to John last week and asked him to produce all my receipts on how much I paid him. He provided me the wrong number, which was also an estimate. I told him he had a week to do the right thing or I was filing a Bar Complaint. The Bar doesn’t tolerate lawyers like him. They will ask for far more than I’m asking for. I will be filing a complaint on Monday morning along with retaining another lawyer. At that point I’ll be asking for the same damages as I was asking for before he canceled my trail. DO NOT HIRE THIS GUY. I’m sure he does this with a lot of his clients. To be honest, the only reason I retained him was because my brother-in-law suggested him. After mentioning this to my brother-in-law, well he was very disappointed and shocked. Again, I will be filing a complaint with the Bar and anyone who has been done wronged by John McArthur now know your rights. Prior to becoming a lawyer you must get sworn in under oath that you will protect your client. John did the opposite. One ⭐️ is actually being generous.

Mr. McArthur is not the type of lawyer that will communicate what he has planned, but he knows what he's doing and what is best for the defendant. He was recommended to me for my son's case, and I could not have hired a better lawyer. He was able to drop 2 murder charges, and he negotiated the best deal we could have hoped for my son. I will be forever grateful. God bless you, Mr. McArthur.

Me and my mother hired MacArthur with confidence now it has been a disaster he was going to handle one of my cases in a divorce I cannot get any answers out of him. He's been prolonging my case, hard to contact, and very unprofessional. I will do an update on how the case turned out but as of now I am very disappointed it's been a waste of time, money, and very stressful. Hopefully he'll pull through on my case, but as of now I wouldn't suggest to hire him!

William "Bill" McArthur was completely dishonest throughout the entire time. Not only was he hard to contact after I paid him, but he was not honest about any of the things that we had privately discussed concerning my case. I was totally caught off guard, because I truly believed that as my lawyer, William Overend would be the last person to lie to me. Trust me when I say that this man does not care about whatever situation that you or your loved one is going through, and that he's all about the money.

My husband hired McArthur and dealing with him has been a complete pain in the ass. My husband is currently incarcerated and every time he calls it’s the same story. His lawyer isn’t available, he can’t answer or doesn’t know anything regarding his case, or he hasn’t came by to meet with him when he was supposed to. It’s extremely stressful because when he lacks it becomes a problem that his family has to figure out. It’s already hard and stressful enough for us. My husband has been in jail for almost four months and since he’s been incarcerated McAuthur has only showed up for court and filled a motion (which was done both times last minute). He’s also made one visit and that was probably because I asked him to meet me at the jail to take care of a payment. He doesn’t respond to text messages or “he’s out of office” all the time. His communication is terrible and his attitude is very unprofessional. McArthur has had my husbands discovery regarding his case for at least a month if not more and has not took the time to go discuss his case with him. I nor my husband should have to feel uncomfortable speaking with his attorney. He acts as if we’re bugging him and he basically avoids him. I just wouldn’t recommend his legal representation. We’re more than half way done paying him and it sucks feeling like it’s been wasted, especially when we have other things that could’ve been handled. I typically try not to go as far as leaving negative reviews, However I’ve given this man the benefit of doubt too long and now it’s just becoming ridiculous. I’ll be searching for new legal representation if this doesn’t get on track within the next two weeks. If anything changes I will update my review but for now I really wish I could give him less than one star.
