I retained John Elias to represent me in a highly contested divorce case. I had two prior attorneys,
were unable to locate monies and assets which my Former Husband was hiding from me. Mr. Elias, during trial and in an appeal, he was able to disclose my Former Husband's actual income and assets. The outcome of my case, thanks to Mr. Elias, has helped me to continue with a stable life and income. I highly recommend Mr. Elias for a complex family law cases.

This was my first time using an attorney. I used him for my divorce. As a woman having never experienced a divorce, Mr.Elias was very helpful,explaining the whole process while being extremely patient with me. His rates were reasonable. I would highly recommend Mr. Elias as a divorce attorney.

He was very unprofessional, on a couple of occasion he made me go to the court knowing that the court day had been postponed, he would only gave a call to ask for more money, witch by the way I end up paying double the money we had originally agreed on.
From the beginning of my case he was misleading telling me how the case was going to be, in my case a was being a victim of lies and he never did anything for me all he did was telling me to accept everything that at the end the Judge would see the thru and I was going to be fine, DO NOT FALL FOR THAT, he is just trying to find another reason to charge you more money.
I was a victim of an illegal immigrant that lied about domestic abuse and left me on the streets and this lawyer knowing how hard it was for me to get the money to pay him never did anything to defend me.

I was a client of this attorney. What I disliked about this attorney's services is his failure to keep me reasonably informed about the status of the case, and his failure to promptly comply with my reasonable requests for information regarding the case, and his failure to provide me competent representation.
