Born and raised in Morro Bay, California, I attended college in the Midwest (University of Chicago - B.A. June 1996) and law school in the Rocky Mountains (University of Denver - J.D. May 1999).  I obtained my Colorado license and practiced briefly at a medium-sized litigation firm in Denver before returning to practice in my home state of California in 2000.

I believe my clients are entitled to a lawyer who can call upon extensive trial experience to assess how their case will be received during a trial, arbitration, or mediated settlement.  From the first day of my practice I focused on courtroom and trial advocacy.  I have attended several hundreds of hearings before courts, arbitrators, and governmental agencies.  Of those, nearly 100 were contested hearings and trials involving live witness testimony.  As a result, I have developed the deep background necessary to help you make the best decision possible in your dispute.

I have been married over half my life and I have five children, so I can relate to individual situations with job, kids, and family, on a personal level.  When I'm not working, I coach children's sports, help with their activities, swim, practice yoga, waterski, attend my church, and I will go to just about any baseball game I can find.

For Family Law issues, he's the best
I hired an attorney in the initial stages of my Family Law matter and he wasn't getting the job done. Plus he wanted much more in attorney fees to go to court. I know he (the previous attorney) was too expensive because Felix and my Ex's attorney charged the same amount.... Anyway, once Mr. Poggemann took over my case, it was a breath of fresh air. He went to court with me and I came out on top. He's an excellent Family Lawyer. Sometimes he's not as responsive as he could be, but I think that he's probably pretty busy. He did come through when I really needed him to. I would use him again in a second.

EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT
There aren't enough stars listed to acknowledge the professionalism, honesty and character of Mr. Felix Poggemann. I needed an attorney and I needed one fast. Felix came HIGHLY recommended by several well known attorneys who's case loads were full. Felix met with me was very open , honest and up front. I had a very contentious divorce and have had difficulties with my custody. He came on board and did what my previous 3 lawyers never did for me. That was work fast, diligently, meticulously and he personally answered all my calls, texts and emails within minutes of me sending them. He is dedicated to his job and dedication to his clients goes far and beyond any attorney I know or have met. His work far exceeds the price he charges. I am going to personally pay him more than he asked because he deserves it. I cannot thank him enough. If you're looking for an attorney who will do his job and truly care about you and your case call Felix asap. He is the most ethical and honest man out there. I can't thank him enough.

Very good lawyer
Felix assisted me with a complaint against my license by the BRN. He was very knowledgeable and responsive and easy to talk to. He put a lot of work into my case and gave me good advice. Highly recommended.

Domestic Violence Case
Felix agreed to take my case with less than 1 month to prepare for trial. He reviewed my entire file (5 years worth) and worked quickly to gather information from witnesses. He was able to negotiate a settlement agreement with opposing counsel, helping keep my case out of court while successfully obtaining the results we were hoping for. I am very thankful to have Felix representing my case!

A Lawyer with integrity and compassion.
Felix was professional, understanding, gave me hope and performed his job exceptionally well. I am extremely satisfied with his services. I always felt like Felix cared about my case and was on my side. He truly wanted to help me through my issues and he did what he promised.

Felix Poggemann-5 Stars all around
Felix did an amazing job advising me on a potentially problematic issue regarding an appeal with the CA Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board (CUIAB). I was confident that the facts supported my position, and Felix helped me best present my side of the story. The Administrative Law Judge decided completely in my favor, validating my claims. Thanks Felix!

Felix George Poggemann, Esq. Great man, great attorney!
When I began to navigate the complexities of family law to obtain a divorce, it quickly became apparent that I needed someone to guide me through the process. Luckily, I found Felix Poggemann, Esq. He took the time to listen to my situation, outline a plan of action and explain what was involved with each action that was taken. He answered my many questions, patiently tolerated my tears and made me feel that he was my advocate, especially in court. I trust him and admire his keen intellect, analytical ability, knowledge of the law and ability to produce a favorable outcome for me. He is amazing at strategy and always seems to be at least two steps ahead of everyone else involved. He helped me understand the important issues of my case and focus on those areas without wasting time or money on issues that were of little consequence. I am grateful that I found an attorney with compassion for me and my circumstances. He is honest and forthright with high personal and professional standards. He made a very difficult experience feel safer and more tolerable. I've learned a lot from him in the process. He has been especially brilliant with the financial complications of my case and is tenacious in discovering hidden income and inconsistencies insisting on full disclosure to protect my spousal rights. Nothing gets by this guy! I highly recommend Felix Poggemann as your attorney if you want the best. I would and already have recommended him to others.

Five Stars from this former client.
I highly recommend Mr. Poggemann. I had a difficult support issue with my divorce settlement and I found his in-depth knowledge to be both comforting and helpful with my case. He was responsive and spoke to me like I was a human being (something that previous attorneys did not). Five Stars from this former client.

Financial wizard
Mr. Poggemann has a big heart and a real interest in his clients. He demonstrates a sound knowledge about the financial aspects of alimony. He takes the time to explain things in simple terms. I especially appreciate this since I am not a financial wizard. I trust his advice and am thankful for his tireless efforts to help me obtain a fair spousal support.

We could not have done it without Felix Poggemann
From the first time we stepped into Mr. Poggemann's office to our last day in court, we knew we had the absolute best attorney possible. He was personable without being phony. He listened to us and carefully planned the strategy to enable us to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of obtaining custody of our grandchildren. Because he has great insight, he was able to encourage us when times were unsettling. His ability to represent us in court was impressive and invaluable. Mr. Poggemann knows the law and anticipates how judges may interpret it. He was always warm and caring, even when he had to be firm to calm our stressed out emotions. He has a terrific sense of humor which relieved many tense moments. We prevailed in court but even if we would have lost, we would still sing his praises. This guy is a top-notch attorney. If we ever need legal representation again, we know where to go.

Great Attorney
When I say Felix is a great attorney I speak from a lot of experience. Unfortunately I went through 3 bad Attorneys before I found Felix. Felix is business minded and driven by what is best for his client.

Not only has Felix provided the above mentioned survey, but he has gone many times above and beyond in assuring I felt comfortable in understanding the process of law. If I were in the law firm business, I would hire him away myself.

Hired Felix for custody and support issues during my divorce
Felix did a good job during the hearings and trials. He was prepared. He got there on time and despite a few inconsistencies in the paperwork he did a good job. the problems that I experienced with Felix were he generally did not return phone calls or text messages. He rarely answered my questions so I felt a little in the dark about some things. He also tended to take the male perspective so in my case I feel I should have hired a female attorney. I probably would have gotten better results, especially for the child support

Bad lawyer
Felix is a Horrible lawyer! He called me the wrong name in court! I brought him paperwork from my divorce and he refused to let me tell him about it. He said,”If you talk, I won’t be your lawyer.” He didn’t show up in court at one hearing. He owes me over $1,000 but refuses to refund me. His practice has been going downhill the last several years. Do not, I repeat, NOT risk your case with him! There are many other legitimate lawyers out there. Do your research! One day when I showed up at his office, he wasn’t even there! The receptionist called him and then she told me he “forgot” about out meeting. He rushed over to the office in jeans and a t-shirt and told me his “lunch appointment ran late! His receptionist already told me he forgot!

Stay away!
Felix did not understand my needs nor help me in my divorce. Married in 1972. Great family , earnings, homes , cars. Serious accident and I was down. I lost everything. Felix charged me $17,000 then wanted another $10,000. I said no and went Bankrupt in 2010. Felix helped or advised me nor did he negotiate my fate nor keep me informed.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Jul 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Felix is a lawyer's lawyer. What do I mean by that? As a personal injury attorney, part of my obligations to the community I serve is to know who the "go to" people are for legal issues that fall outside my expertise. Whenever a client of mine, or prospective client presents an issue relating to divorce, separation, child custody, support, I, without hesitation, recommend Felix. Unlike most attorneys, Felix is compassionate, yet incredibly smart and savvy. He has the skills necessary to keep folks calm in very tense and emotional settings, and the legal skills to protect his client's interests and serve their needs. Additionally, he has wonderful taste in music and a keen sense of humor."
