5.0 stars 19 totalReview John Yohanan
Mr Yohanan guided me through a long and arduous process. At all times he expressed a desire to deal responsibly and fairly while keeping my best interests
in mind. He offered guidance as to how to minimize
legal costs. I am pleased with the outcome and the way he handled all aspects, gave help and offered suggestions to assure closure. He was highly recommended by former clients and I will happily
recommend Mr Yohanan to any prospective client.
My case was one of the simplest but its resolution was getting complex with time. I was having a really tough time with my first lawyer, he actually did more harm than good. I then interviewed a lot of attorneys and finally chose Mr. Yohanan. The day he started handling the case, it was different. Mr. Yohanan is very thorough professional and a kind human being. Mr. Yohanan did quite an intensive research in my case and had been very ethical in dealing with everything. One of the rare lawyers who make this profession respectable to date. I have been very fortunate to have him as my attorney and he really made my case go from a loser to a winner. I would highly recommend him if you are in this situation.
When I contacted John on the phone, he explained the process, what it would take, what it would cost and approximately how long it would take. He was quite personable and we got along great.
I live out of state, but my ex lives there in SJ and on the advice of an attorney here, I was told it would be more advantageous to file there. For me, it was totally hands off. We did all the paperwork remotely and it went without any problems.
John handled everything and kept me appraised of progress and even dealt with my ex (a feat in and of itself).
Overall, the process took a bit longer than expected, but it had nothing to do with John. It was delays in the court administration, but again, he kept both parties informed.
Oh, because things went so well and took less of his time than expected, he is refunding some of my retainer.
I won't need a divorce lawyer again, but I can heartily recommend John Yohanan - especially if you are out of state and need someone to represent your interests in SJ.

After reviewing and consulting several attorneys I chose John. He handled my divorce with professionalism, knowledge and most of all compassion. He was always proactive and responsive to my needs and guided me through the whole process from initial separation, asset division to final dissolution. I would highly recommend John and his staff. On a further note, his billing was aways accurate and reasonable for the area and did nothing to inflate his fee throughout the process. Thank you John.

I needed a divorce attorney, and was referred to John by a friend. I was very pleased with his professionalism, knowledge and patience. Especially his patience. He guided me through this difficult process and answered my not-so-smart questions thoroughly. He also kept me sane throughout, a challenging task in the best of circumstances. I am very glad I hired John and would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a divorce attorney.

I hired John Yohanan to represent me on a divorce case. My divorce had the added difficulty that I was living abroad. He is a highly knowledgeable attorney , reliable and trustworthy .Besides, he is compassionate to the client's needs. He has made sure I always had all the information and paperwork I needed. I would definitely hire him again!

John has kept me sane through a very difficult and very lengthy divorce (going on 8 years, half of it with John (he had to clean up the mess the first four years made). It is high stakes, including custody, employment efforts, forensic CPAs, real estate, you name it. My divorce is one for the books. John is extremely competent in all areas, I knew what to expect, he kept me totally involved as the decisions are mine, he calmly told me how to navigate and get me through it. He goes by the law, knows it, and it shows. He is very personable and never gives out the BS I have experienced with others. So if you have the situation where you want a clear, clean, well thought out solution where everyone wins, hire John, he is the best at what he does.

This attorney handled my divorce case very poorly and I had to terminate his services. This is just my personal experience. He had very poor communication skills. He was very rude and condescending on the phone or in person. He always had big surprises on the day or the day before a hearing. He gave short answers to your questions and tried to get you out of his office as quick as possible when I needed to understand the process and hear his strategies. I felt that he was not aggressive and he did not have the drive to fight for my case. He dismissed my ideas and requests as non-sense and took the shortest route that was convenient for him. I felt that he didn't really like appearing and presenting my case before the judge. He simply wanted to settle to something that usually favored the opposing party. Stretched out a baseless restraining order hearing into a trial which was pushed out 8 months after the initial hearing because the opposing party was going out of town and I was informed only on the day of the hearing. His over-priced response was weak and written in a daze. When I begged him to plead my case to the judge, he used scare tactics to show that my ideas were stupid and that if I did not follow his advice, I would end up with a permanent restraining order. Everything he did ended up costing me so much both financially and emotionally. He very quickly cleaned out my retainer fee and a lot more for pretty much no progress to my case. I felt like he was working for the opposing counsel who he was friends with. He had nothing much to say when we went before the judge except to extend the hearing to another date. I had to ask permission to speak to the judge and plead my case.
Personally, I would not recommend this attorney.
