John has been working with me for almost 3 years to get thru a difficult divorce process. I have waited to review him on YELP until the process was complete, so it would not have an undesired effect on the other party, and we finally negotiated a stipulated settlement agreement this month. So I can now post my review.
It cost me a ton to settle with the ex-wife, but that is the nature of the divorce laws in California -- the system is broken, and you need an experienced guide to navigate through the mess created by our friends in Sacramento. John has been a wonderful guide, and I strongly recommend him to other men facing this challenge.
When he saw how the opposing lawyers were billing the case, he made it his mission to ensure my ex-wife paid her own exorbitant fees, which in many cases are often billed to the Respondent (me). His fees have been very reasonable and amounted to far less than my ex-wife paid her attorneys. He provides good value for the money spent.
John is an experienced, no-nonsense lawyer who knows everyone involved in the Santa Clara Family Court system, and his reputation is strongly positive with the other officers of this Court -- a big plus.

John was an outstanding lawyer during my divorce case. He was very patient with me throughout my case. He was always very prompt when responding to phone calls and emails. His advice was well thought out and backed by years of experience. John took his time to guide me though the process, but never overwhelmed me the details. I told him what I expected, as well as what I hoped for, and he took care of it! John did all he could to make the best of a bad situation. John made me feel a lot more comfortable in an otherwise uncomfortable situation. I have not gone through anything like this before and having John on my side made me feel much better. John has many years of experience and was able to guide me though the process very smoothly. I am very happy to have had John on my side and I would highly recommend him.

John Yohanan is an impeccable, knowledgeable, and deeply compassionate professional, who guided me through my difficult and emotionally draining divorce. I knew that I could trust this man as soon as I heard his voice on the telephone when I first reached out to him, in my stunned and shattered state of mind. John Yohanan is simply one of the nicest people I have ever met. He seemed to understand my grief, and accepted it as part of the course, without letting it interfere with the process. He used a gentle but firm hand to educate me, inform me of my options, to provide his expert opinion, and to help me make decisions at each step of the divorce, even when I had no strength to make any decisions. I couldn't have done this without John Yohanan on my side, and I could not imagine a better attorney for anyone who is going through the hard process of divorce.

John has been quite thorough since beginning of the case of my Sister's Divorce. I have also been in multiple discussions along with her and he has always been very knowledgeable and would advise the right recommendations. We were always confident with him advising us. I would strongly recommend him for any legal affairs. He is a true professional.

When unexpectedly the dreadful time came in my life and I had to find a divorce attorney for myself, John was the first attorney whom I consulted and hired him next day. Though people advised me to interview at least three- four attorneys before hire one, but I didn't feel the need to meet any other attorney after meeting John. I was clueless and didn't have much info about financial aspect. During my first meeting, John patiently answered my every question and put my mind at ease. Later he gave me his valuable advise and told me what he thinks will be the best approach for me. He was very clear in explaining all of that. I was impressed by his deep knowledge, patience, and pleasantness. Through-out my court case I was well informed of every little thing by John. His approach of handling the case was well formed and precise to the main points. He doesn't waste time and money of his client. Infact, he is very reasonable in his billing. I am very pleased with John's work and highly recommend him.

John was always the voice of reason during this process. He was fierce enough when the opposing counsel tried to be slimy. Very responsive and understanding. He bills reasonably unlike other attorneys who bill you if you sneeze. You definitely want john on your side.

I was very fortunate to have John represent me in my case. He is very knowledgeable of family law and court proceedings as reflected from his extensive years of experience. During the entire process, he provided me professional advice, guidance, and emotional support. John represented me in my best interest and avoided court fees whenever possible. His assistant, Liz, is also wonderful. John is a good listener and adheres to a high ethical standard. I like the fact that he handled my case personally rather than dealing with several lawyers and paralegals in a bigger law firm. John provided prompt replies to my questions and kept me posted with timely status updates. He is also very keen in use of latest technology for communication and file transfer to save time and improve efficiency. I would highly recommend John to anyone seeking family law representation.

Mr. Yohanan is a true professional. He not only is an expert on divorce law, he actually did what he said he was going to do. He accurately predicted my costs and time line, and was always available when needed. I highly recommend him.
