John Totten was hired for my divorce case. He and his staff were very thorough, responsive, and on top of things. They did a great job getting my case settled out of court and with my best interest in mind. John Totten’s retainer was reasonable compared to others in the field. I highly recommend this office for family law matters.


Mr. Totten is an excellent attorney. He always had my best interests in mind and kept me informed of everything that was happening. I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney.


John is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer. Not only does he understand the law, he is able to explain it in a way that even I could understand. His legal staff is top notch. Bridgett Jackson has a unique ability to be able to explain both sides of an argument. She can show understanding about how you feel you were wronged while at the same time, explaining to you how the court will likely perceive the situation. This is not something all law firms do. Many firms will only tell clients what they want to hear, costing the clients a lot of time and money, and the outcome being the same. With this firms knowledge and personal relationships in the community, they are able to find solutions for difficult situations that are in the clients best interest.

John was the best attorney for my case! It was necessary to file contempt charges due to non-compliance of child support that concerned our children’s college expenses, which was written in our divorce decree. On the surface, this would seem like an easy case, but due to extenuating circumstances it was not. I did my research and found the best attorney in Alabama. John is outstanding at what he does. He was honest and straightforward from day one. At no fault of Mr. Totten, this was a lengthy case (due in part to COVID, mediation delays, and other circumstances). He and his staff persisted and saw my case through. Bridget always responded quickly, especially via email, as that was the easiest form of communication for me. John and his staff are exceptionally skilled in what they do! I am beyond pleased with the outcome we received. I am so appreciative of John and his staff. One of the best decisions I have ever made was to hire John Totten. If you are looking for the best attorney in Alabama for your case, consult with John Totten. You will not be disappointed!


They clean my name and got my kids back fast as they could , they really care. I highly recommend them .


We was hit with a child custody case and John Totten saved us! We got our daughter home! Hands down the best ever!


Best lawyer I know, very honest and honorable man. He will listen and not judge. I would recommend him over any attorney in Alabama. Very kind and respectful and patriotic.

Mr. Totten took our case that we thought was going to be short and easy! Turned out that was not going to happen. What should have been a few papers in front of the judge and done turned into like a year long thing. Not at any of his fault.He and his team never gave up! Totten was always there to answer any questions and help!! My family is very grateful for him and his office! And I would recommend him to anyone!
