John Mayoue Declines to Comment

The notoriously tight-lipped celebrity divorce lawyer opens up … but not about Jane, M.J. and Usher

When celebrity divorce attorney John C. Mayoue was growing up, he never met a celebrity. He also never met an attorney. He didn’t even encounter a divorce. “The population of my rural hometown was 44 people,” says Mayoue (pronounced “May-you”), born and bred in West Rush, New York, in the Finger Lakes area. “You hear about two-stoplight towns?

In the middle of a medical malpractice case involving a cervical spine injury, a juror tripped while stepping out of the box and smacked her head, hard, against the railing. “Laid her out flat,” recalls Philip C.
