Appeals Attorney passionate, responsive/thorough
I am extremely happy and grateful to Juan Arias. He is an excellent attorney, passionate, thorough, determined, very responsive, communicative and very detailed. He represented my daughter and I in the appeal of the parental termination of parental rights.  He really cared and advocated for my daughter and I.  Despite the complexity of my case and appeals court he explained everything well, he responded rapidly to motions filed, messages and emails, he took the time to review and learn our 9 entire 9 year case history well, he understood and explained to me the process including keeping me updated on anything that happen or motions filed in appeals court for my case. Most importantly, I felt my daughter and our case was lost in the system and Juan was able to bring us hope, light, peace and closure into our 9 year case and not only did we win the case but the outcome was finalized and the appeals followed by the opposing party. I highly recommend him he went above and beyond and he will truly give you his 100%, and fight for your rights and outcome you seek.

Best most passionate and dedicated attorney!
I am Eternally grateful to Juan Arias. He is an excellent attorney, passionate, determined and very detailed. If your looking for an attonery that is compassionate and fights for you and truly cares to get the outcome you seek he is your person. My case was extremely complicated involving domestic abuse and child abuse a case that was stuck in litigation for 8 years and 9 and half months. He dedicated his time, always made him self available no matter the time and despite having other cases and family . He answered every email, phone call and message quickly. He was extremely detailed and took his time to explain everything the pros and the cons and different outcomes. I really felt that I wasnt just another client. I felt as he treated my case as if he was the one going through and experiencing my case. He took over my case and was able to piece together and fix all the things that were not done and truly poured his heart and soul to my case and despite the complexity of the case he was able to prove the case and finally able to end this 8 and half year 9 month battle and we won my dependency case. He brought healing and peace into my daughter and my heart and soul. We can heal and put this awful pass behind us. No words can describe how grateful I am for what he did his determination, dedication and attention to detail was spectacular He went above and beyond. No one new my case better than he did. He is an excellent attonery and I highly recommend him

Efficient and Professional
Juan handled my child custody and child support case for me. Child support/custody cases are very stressful and emotional, but Juan helped ease the stress. He was always available to answer my questions and helped guide me through the entire process. Juan is a great attorney. He is very knowledgable and truly cares about his clients.

Juan Arias
Although Mr.Arias was not able to represent me because of a conflict he gave me some good advice & was able to recommend me someone else. I wish he would've been able to represent me because I believe he would've got me the results I wanted. But i thank him anyway for the time he took to talk to me.

Excellent Mentor and Hard Working Attorney
Attorney Juan Arias is a hard working attorney and will work for you! He is very knowledgeable in matters pertaining to family law, dependency, and more. He is an excellent advocate in the court room which comes from experience working daily as a litigator. I was fortunate enough to have him as my mentor starting out in dependency law and he was a wealth of knowledge. He is a team player and quickly understands the mechanics required to be successful in this system. He is detail-oriented and leaves no stone upturned. You can trust that he will go above and beyond on your cases. It is difficult to find an attorney who is an advocate as well as an ethical attorney. He is committed to dispute resolution and is trustworthy and passionate about his profession.

You don't just need a lawyer, you need a partner
I never imagined I would be in a situation where I needed counsel from a family law professional. But there I was, in need of a lawyer that could help me protect my children from their father. When I met Juan, I had recently reported my husband to the authorities for harming our children. I knew I wanted to protect my children, but other than knowing I didn’t want their father in their lives, I didn’t know how to proceed. Juan was recommended to me by an acquaintance. I engaged Juan's services shortly after speaking with him about my situation. I was stressed, nervous and frankly quite lost. I didn't know how to navigate the law as it pertained to what had just happened to my family. But after learning about Juan's background as a former Department of Children and Families prosecutor and his experience with cases similar to mine, I felt confident in hiring him. To add to the turmoil, because of the nature of what my husband did, DCF was engaged. So, we were leveraging two parts to my case, the legal aspect around terminating the father’s parental rights, and inquiries, interviews and visits made by DCF. Everything at once seemed like a lot, but Juan knew exactly what to do and how to navigate these situations. Within a few days Juan prepared a strategic, foolproof actionable plan that ultimately resulted in me getting full custody of my children and removing all parental rights from the father. He worked to expedite the process (which considering it took place amidst the Covid-19 pandemic still moved relatively quickly through the courts), within five months our case was complete and closed in our favor). With Juan's help and support I gained the confidence to make the right legal decisions to protect my children (in the short and long term). During this time, I found Juan to be intelligent, empathetic, supportive, ahead of the issues that we would eventually face in court, and very understanding. He was honest, transparent, thorough, and is very good at cutting through all of the noise (emotional distress and pain, etc.) to help you see the best solution for your loved ones. Juan helped me address my legal needs at the moment, but consistently worked to ensure our work had long lasting effects. When it came to my children's safety he made power moves that would keep them safe over a lifetime, and I was extremely appreciative of this foresight and vision. Juan was essential to the success of my case. He was an ally and a partner. He is strongly passionate about his work and deeply cares about the well-being of all children (as demonstrated by his previous work and experience). I cannot imagine having gone through this with another partner, and would highly recommend Juan to anyone seeking counsel to protect children from any harm. Rest assured that you’re in good hands with Juan!

Cuando elegí al Ab. Arias sin duda fue porque me transmitió seguridad, confianza y coherencia; quien no sólo se tomó el tiempo de escucharme e identificar el origen de mi problema sino que también marcó el camino para solucionarlo de manera eficaz, con carisma y persuasión. El es un profesional de la abogacía con mucho conocimiento jurídico, además de su experiencia en los juzgados su valor principal es la honestidad advirtiendo los riesgos y consecuencias en los procedimientos. Le doy gracias por haber resuelto mi caso en tan poco tiempo. Lo recomiendo 100 por ciento .

Great Lawyer and excellent Counselor.
Juan C. For me, apart from advising me and representing me, the most important thing was the time He spent listening to me and making me understand how not to focus on meaningless fights but to focus on the good of my children. A divorce is stressful and complicated and Juan made it more bearable and very organized. He was always available when I needed him. Juan helped me to focus on my children to make everything easier. He kept me informed of everything in my case. I have an eternal thanks to Juan C. Arias for all his support.

Highly recommended Attorney
Definitivamente recomendado. Como Juan me dijo el primer día, su servicio fue muy personalizado y siempre estaba disponible para responder mis preguntas. Fue muy honesto y trabajo super rápido en todo inclusive finalizo el caso mas rápido de lo que yo pensaba. Just as Dr. Juan Arias told me at our first meeting; his legal services are personalized. He was always available to answer any questions I had and committed to win my case from day 1. He was honest and worked hard to obtain the best outcome for me and my family. He won my case and even closed it before the expected timeframe.
