John S. Yohanan
Attorney at Law
About John S. YohananThe decision to file for divorce is difficult and highly personal. You may have many questions and concerns but find it hard to talk about these issues with friends and family. They may have the best of intentions, but divorce and family law situations often involve private issues that are uncomfortable to share. Sometimes your family and friends may simply not understand your situation.
I invite you to my website where I have attempted to provide you with general information relating to various issues or problems that may arise in a divorce proceeding. These are listed as "practice areas." This information is of course not exhaustive of all issues or problems that may arise in a divorce proceeding. I suggest you start with the "Do's and Don'ts in a Divorce Proceeding or in Contemplating Divorce" whether you seek a divorce or modification of existing orders.
I am Martindale-Hubbell BV Distinguished rated. Martindale-Hubbell conducts random, anonymous surveys of attorneys and judges to determine an attorney's rating. Whether you are considering divorce or have another family matter, I can help you. I will answer your questions and help you solve your legal problems.
Whomever you hire, your attorney should respond to your telephone messages or e-mail promptly, should be familiar with local court procedures and practices, should provide you with copies of all court documents and correspondence, should not have to be reminded of the basic facts of your case every time you speak and should timely present all settlement proposals.Even after decades of practicing law, I continue to see new issues and surprising twists in otherwise familiar situations. This serves as a constant reminder to me that every family's situation is unique and as such requires a highly personalized approach.
A commitment to personal service is evident in every aspect of my law practice. My staff and I treat every client as if they were my only client and every family law case with the utmost attention. When you employ me as your divorce lawyer you will be working directly with me, not a staff attorney to whom your case is assigned.
