About me

John T. Bachmayer has over three decades of handling contentious California Family Law and civil litigation matters. He has a proven track record of successfully negotiating settlements and favorable trial outcomes on behalf of clients. His concentration at the firm is on litigation of the full array of California family law matters at the temporary order and other pre-trial stages, through trial, and on appeal. His extensive background in areas of non-family law civil litigation provides the expertise necessary to undertake the representation of California family law clients who have ancillary civil matters, thus providing a full service, and often eliminating the need to retain separate legal counsel.  Mr. Bachmayer is AV-rated by Martindale Hubbell.

    I endorse this lawyer. John is very knowledgeable in Family Law and knows the civil and evidence code better than any other attorney I have worked with or know. John and I worked together on a few cases and each time we complete the case, I walk away learning something new. Not only is John extremely sharp, he is compassionate and truly cares about his client's and co-workers. I am honored to endorse this attorney.
