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.

Do yourself a favor. Hire John Totten. I had my divorce papers written in one day. After both signatures were received, this attorney office was able to have the judge sign the very next day. Bridgett and Shelbie were professional, caring and calming. This experience was pleasant beyond my expectations. I dislike dealing with any legal matters prior to the use of this office. Now, I know if I have to hire an attorney, I can choose Totten and his team and know they’re out for my best interests.

Office people are very polite and professional. Will recommend this professional to anyone who needs his services.

John, Bridgett, and Shelbie will forever have my gratitude for everything they have done for me. My case was a complicated one, and they knew exactly how to handle each curve that was thrown at us. From my daughter being kidnapped by my ex and not being able to see her for two months, to false abuse charges, the divorce, undiagnosed mental illness, COVID, stolen money, a large amount of debt piled up, and many other things they were able to navigate it all. If I can give one piece of advice that would be to document everything, record everything, and educate yourself on what to do and not to do.

In the end, John and his team were able to get me sole custody of my daughter, the house, both vehicles, and even some of the debt paid. I won everything I wanted and even got more than I thought I would. John was recommended to me by another lawyer’s office in Huntsville and is highly thought of by other lawyers I talked to along the way. I’m so thankful I followed their advice. You only have one chance to get this right.
