He can do it!
Even if it seems impossible he can get results. Honestly the situation was a worst case scenario and he fixed it out quickly. I wish there were more people like him around.

Competent and accountable
John has been a crucial player on recovering money owed to our company. This process has been lingering for months and after John took over the case, money was recovered within two weeks. Will definitely keep John’s services for any future legal proceedings.

Court Case
The current situation isn't even resolved yet and there aren't enough words of praise I can say for Atty Tatoian! I am so impressed with the level of service he has provided; his response time is fabulous. He is a wealth of knowledge and has answered every question I have asked with kindness and patience. I never thought I would be in this type of situation; just speaking with him calmed my nerves. John deserves more than a 5 star option; I feel hiring him was the best decision I could have made.

Excellent Lawyer: Student loan debt
Excellent Lawyer. Attorney Tatoian was extremely receptive to my phone call, very polite, asked questions, and most importantly listened. He was able to answer my student loan debt questions within minutes. He spoke with the other attorneys In the case, got to the bottom of the issue and was able to resolve it in under 24 hours. I was extremely stressed before speaking with him, he reassured me and the next day everything was resolved in my favor. If you or somebody that you know has concerns regarding student loan debt, private student loan debt, this is the person I would be reaching out to for assistance he is extremely knowledgeable and again solved my problem within 24 hours. He is an honest, good lawyer and very down to earth . I now have no stress thanks to him and as we all know student loan debt in any capacity can be very frustrating and stressful and this not my field of expertise I was grateful for his assistance. Very realistic rates and seemed more concerned with solving my problem then getting a check this to me speaks volumes about his character. Thank you so much for all of your help!!!!!

If you’re in need of a good attorney you should get in touch with John. I needed an attorney to resolve old credit card debt. After I agreed to have him represent me he made a settlement with them the same day. I would highly recommend you get in touch with John if you have any legal problems.

Great Attorney! He will always call you back!
I hired Atty Tatoian to help with an old debt and some overly aggressive collectors. Once he got involved, the situation improved dramatically! The best thing about John, he always calls you back in a timely fashion. He is extremely professional, and courteous, and a great individual to work with.

The Legal Equalizer
Attorney Tatoian is simply amazing. I called a few dozen attorneys to get help with a big car company warranty issue. Most attorneys seem to only want the easy slip & fall/vehicle accident money and not have to do multi-state litigation. Finally finding Attorney Tatoian was like finding the lawyer version of The Equalizer! He was relentless in his pursuit to equitably resolve my case. Atty Tatoian was there to tirelessly fight for me when all seemed hopeless in my fight againt the car giant.

Highly recommend John's advice and expertise
John patiently listened to my case and was very helpful. He covered various options, each of its advantages and disadvantages thoroughly, and their possible outcomes. He was understanding of my story yet spoke candidly of what I am dealing with. I was so thankful to get his advice and wisdom on how to handle this stressful situation. John's consultation left me with a much better, concrete idea on the steps to take moving foward.

Absolutely FIRST CLASS!
I met Attorney John Tatoian by happenstance when he heard that I was in trouble with a breach of contact/consumer case in south Florida. Although that’s not his practice area, geographically speaking, he was kind enough to offer his time and expertise to render an opinion. John spent at least a half an hour of his afternoon reviewing my case. He’s quick, intuitive, asks the right questions, is always at least a step ahead - just really brilliant. The man totally “gets it”. I was amazed at how he was able to analyze the situation and break it down so simply. I’ll be honest, it takes a lot to impress me. Attorney John Tatoian is mighty impressive! John has a natural curiosity about everything around him. He seems to want to know how and why everything works the way it does, and what motivates people to do what they do. I think this inquisitiveness is part of what makes him so darned good at what he does. Clearly a generous man as well, he gave freely of his time and expertise to a stranger in need. To me, this demonstrates that John values the person behind the case, not just the wallet. He mentioned during our chat that he has a fascination for people; it shows! John gave me a wealth of good advice in the time he spent on the phone with me. He then went the extra mile to search out a good match for an attorney in my area to whom he referred me for additional guidance. Far, far above and beyond my expectations! If AVVO had ten stars, I’d give Attorney John Tatoian twelve. Yeah, I’m pretty sure he’s that good. Thank you, John. Thank you so much!

Best lawyer around
Had a problem with the lemon law issue from a used car sales man. He saved us from going to court and forced the man to take the car back for the full amount that we paid for.

Helped me out of a jam!
I was quite stressed over an old debt that was acquired by an aggressive collector. The first lawyer I approached could only see filing for bankruptcy as an out. John Tatoian took charge of the matter and quickly brought the collector to heel with a reasonable settlement. Thank You!
