About me

We practice exclusively Family Law and exclusively in Ventura County since 2007.  We pride ourselves in providing the personal service and accesability of a small firm with the "zealous representation" that you would expect from a much larger firm.  We realize that in family law, things can become emergencies and very quickly.  That is why someone answers our phones 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.  Our staff works very hard to keep our clients happy and to be available to them in a timely fashion.  Our office is located in lovely downtown Ventura, within the 2nd District Court of Appeals building.  John Negley is a long-term resident of Ventura where he has raised his boys with his wife of 17 years. When not working, John enjoys CrossFit, soccer, mountain biking and keeping up with his five boys.


We offer a free 30 minute consultation on all family law related matters.  (805) 644-4222 and on the web at:

  • Steven Robert Kampf

    I have been opposing counsel on a number of cases with John. He is a true professional and a great family law attorney. He strongly advocates for his clients while also managing the case appropriately. I would recommend John to anyone looking for help with a family law matter.
