Great Experience, Great Attorney!
I had such a great experience with John. He helped me on several personal Injury claims. I really felt like he was fighting hard for me and that he really cared about me. Great experience, great attorney!

I highly recommend Mr. John Jahrmarkt
I had a personal injury situation in our family this year and I contacted John. He was very knowledgeable and helpful and was able to counsel me to take care of some of the matters on my own which saved valuable time and money. I am sure it is rare to find a trustworthy attorney in Los Angeles. So I thought this would be useful for those of you out there.

Professional and extremely diligent
I meant to write this review a while back, but I got sidetracked. Recently, I was reminded about my past car accident and so I wanted to take the time say what a pleasure it was to work with Jahrmarkt & Associates. As I stated earlier, I had been involved in a car accident and John Jahrmarkt and his team were able to get me a monetary settlement I didn't think was possible. They worked very hard from start to finish. Tyler was assigned to my case and he always kept me in the loop with updates on my case. They assisted with finding an excellent rehab facility for my injuries from the accident. These is a very professional team. They work with the utmost integrity and compassion. I would not hesitate to use them again for any personal injury needs.

Very Nice
Professional, personable and knowledgable. I wouldn't want anyone else to represent me. Jahrmarkt & Associates has been an excellent experience.

So Helpful
When I was in a collision, I didn't know what to do. I did everything I was supposed to with the insurance companies, followed every procedure, and documented everything I could. My insurance decided I was at 0% fault and told me to speak to the other party's insurance (since I did not have collision coverage). The other insurance company was aggressive and accusatory and tried to avoid paying me the money I needed to get my car back on the road. I was getting nowhere with this insurance company, and I didn't know what to do. That's when I reached out to Jahrmarkt & Associates. John collected the necessary information from me and went straight to work to make things right. He was extremely professional and worked with the insurance adjuster to argue my case. He was very quick to respond and handled everything in a timely manner. I would recommend his services to anyone in a car accident who needs help.

Great lawyer!
Wow, not really sure where to start. I thank my lucky stars every day that I was fortunate enough to find John when I needed an attorney. Is he a great lawyer....you betcha! But whats even better is that he's just a great guy! In 2011 I moved I to Los Angeles from Detroit. I was not working, staying with friends, and had no health insurance. I had been in the USA about a year Two weeks after I arrived to LA I was rear ended on the Ventura Freeway by an uninsured motorist from El Salvador. I sustained injuries and approximately $6000 in damage to the car I had had less than a year. The only mileage on it really was from the drive from Detroit to LA. Long story short Michigan is a no-fault state and their insurance laws are a 180 degrees different from California's. AAA my insurer John sued for negotiating in bad faith. Anyways John navigated the two-state difference in law, got me the medical attention I needed, GOT ME LOST WAGES when I wasnt even employed and then got me the MAXIMUM SETTLEMENT allowed under my uninsured motorist coverage. Meanwhile the whole time John kept me in the loop, worked like a pit-bull, took a genuine concern that I was receiving the best medical attention, and sought to get me the best settlement possible. John has the ability to listen, never waffles when asked direct questions, and IS ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE. If there was a way to make it better it eludes me??? I can't stress enough that if you need legal assistance John is your guy!! I'd give him 6 Stars if it was possible!!!!

Personable Lawyer
I few months ago I made a huge mistake. I saw the way Mr. Jahrmarkt intelligently answered questions from other people on the site and decided he would be the best fit for my case. He reviewed my case for free without any sort of pressure. Since my case was not really win-able, I will say great things regardless about this lawyer. He kept me informed, walked me through the scenarios if I wished to proceed and just was helpful - not in a rush to try and charge me and just a very honest person. Thank you Mr. J for all you did! I definitely recommend him.

My lawyer didn't pay oasis
I am out of the country and contacted john after he gave me great advice about my question. John demonstrated his intelligence and humanistic value by helping me with my case. He responded the same day and gave me precise information regarding my situation. John is obviously a lawyer who not only cares about each case in which he chooses to participate but is also a lawyer with strong ethics who also cares about the person in whom he is representing. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need who is able to be handled under his specialty of law. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOHN.

I recommend him
I used John for a car accident case that I was in. It was really great in explaining everything and was able to negotiate a decent settlement. It was kind of a small case so we didn't get a lot of money but I really felt he worked hard. There were two other people in the car at the time of the accident. John also represented them and they seemed pretty happy with him also. I recommend him.

REMARKABLE attorney
John is a REMARKABLE attorney with all of the knowledge and experience to argue your case. He is very well respected in the community and has even helped me connect with others outside of his field. This guy works his ass off and is always looking out for your best interest.

Great experience
John handled a wrongful termination case for my husband. He was great we really feel comfortable with all the moves he made in the case and case worked out really well. It was a pretty complicated case and John seem to know all of the legal issues and was able to explain everything to us really well.

Use John in a Heartbeat
I referred more than one of my friends to john to handle cases. They all say great things about him and that he did a great job on their cases. I haven't had the need to hire an injury attorney but based on what my friends said I would use john in a heartbeat.
Posted by Nina | May 7, 2015
Knowledgable and Reasonable
I have found John to be both knowledgable and reasonable about the realities of the law. Have relied on him for over 20 years for advice and professional counsel. John cuts to the chase, and as someone else posted here - focuses on areas in which he can help, instead of racking up billable hours. I would recommend him to anyone with any legal problem. Very trustworthy!

Great Slip and Fall lawyer
John handled a slip and fall case for me. I fell at my apartment building and the landlord was not doing anything about it. I'm lucky I found John because he filed a lawsuit really worked the case hard. He did depositions. He had an expert visit the scene and do an inspection. The expert was really good and found code violations. We ended up settling the case for a lot of money and I'm very happy with John as my attorney.

Great lawyer!
He has good customer care. He works hard for a better settlement. Always has the answers to any questions you might have. He is simply here to help

Common Sense Lawyer
John handles contract and employment work for me in CA, brings a common sense approach here along with strong knowledge of the law. Cuts to the chase, and is able to make make good recommendations on how to proceed, as opposed to other lawyers I've worked with in the past who tended to drop things back in my lap which defeated the purpose of hiring a lawyer. IE, John doesn't waste my time. When I have other legal needs, such as placing a recent bankruptcy claim in LA, he's got competent lawyers who are specialists in his circle that he can point me to.

Great
I use Jahrmarkt and Associates for more than car accidents. He's very knowledgeable in most areas of the law and is good at explaining the details of your case. He's very easy to talk to and he's made the most out of any cases I've had in the the past. I completely trust him with any matter I have and if it's not in his wheel-house of expertise, he'll give you a great referral.
