I came to Mr. Totten through high recommendation in what felt like my darkest hour. My character was being assassinated, I was removed (temporarily) from my children and felt like my world was being turned upside down! Mr. Totten and his staff Bridgett and Shelbie came to my rescue like the Avengers! They had such a calming spirit and reassurance that not only did they have my back, but that they were prepared to go to battle on my behalf! In moments of uncertainty and frustration it was Bridget’s calming spirit who would tell me “take a deep breath, you know who you are and know that you’re a great father, we’ve got you” Mr. Totten was always punctual for our appearances, organized and a true battle tested expert at his profession. Watching him in the court room was like watching Ken Griffey Jr. At the plate execute the “perfect swing.” When it was all said and done, I was awarded joint custody of my babies and just about every single thing we fought for we were able to lay claim too. I would not recommend any other law office for your legal needs! This group is certainly the best in the business and made what felt like the worst time of my life, truly a smooth transition into a brand new and rewarding beginning.

I had a very tricky – messy custody battle. John handled my case with ease. Very professional no worries. He took every obstacle & turned in our favor. No doubt the best lawyer in Athens, Alabama.

We are beyond blessed for John Totten, Bridgett & Shelby. They were fast and very responsive to the case. All questions and concerns were taken care of immediately. I highly recommend John Totten & staff to get the job done and done quickly.

I hired Mr. Totten for my divorce which was originally set up as uncontested but after some time moved to contested. He, along with the rest of his staff, were very professional and handled everything in a timely matter. They were easy to reach, communicated clearly, explained everything in detail, prepared the paperwork for review quickly, and stayed on top of everything better than I could have asked.

I never thought hiring a lawyer could be so smooth and simple. I am extremely grateful for the ease. Working with this law firm took all the stress off of me and helped my divorce go smoothly.

Just stopping by to give you an update to let you know things have been great with my children and family since I’ve received your services. I just want to tell you how humble and grateful i am for you for representing me and my family. My children have been able to have a stress free summer with going into the new school year this year. I pray all is well with you’re staff and your own personal families to be abundantly blessed.


Mr. Totten makes you feel heard and understood. He is a great lawyer! He handled my divorce and I walked away with what I wanted! Bridget is also amazing! She was always there to answer all my questions! I would highly recommend him!
