Good service and answered all my questions. Wonderful people to work with. He listens to you and tries to do what is best for the client. Office is convenient and there is a comfortable atmosphere. 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.


I appreciate the work that Mr. Totten and his staff completed for me. Everything was done in a timely and professional manner with no hiccups or errors. His staff was polite and communicated well in person as well as by phone and email. Even in the time of Covid-19, I never had to wait for service as the staff had everything waiting for me at each visit. I would definitely recommend this team for your legal needs.


Mr. Totten and Bridgett are an awesome choice. They took my case and helped me till the very end. They are a great choice and go above and beyond to take care of you and are always available and know how to get the job done, I highly recommend them.


Mr. Totten and his staff worked very hard for my case, they were very honest and communicated with me through the entire process. I could not have asked for a better outcome, he sets out to win his cases and that was the outcome of mine. I highly recommend him for any legal representation.


The whole team was so easy to work with. Fast and knowledgeable! they did a great job fighting for me and got my divorce finalized so quickly. I would recommend them to anyone.


I used Mr. Totten for my divorce. I ended up in his office after hiring another attorney who never filed my papers and wouldn’t return my phone calls. Mr. Totten was very knowledgeable and understanding of my situation through the process. His office is very responsive to emails and phone calls, which for me, is very important. I highly recommend Mr. Totten for any legal issues you need help with.

John is a great attorney! Would recommend him to anyone. He did great at working with me and my family.


Mr. Totten and Bridgett were very helpful. They were very prompt at answering my questions and helped me with my concerns/worries with my case. They both went above and beyond. They both know their stuff. Mr. Totten was upfront with my initial consultation. I would highly recommend Mr. Totten and I would use him again if need be. I couldn’t thank them enough.

I hired Mr. Totten over 4 years ago for my divorce and came to him with a more than difficult divorce. Difficult is an understatement because there were many odds against me. I was a mess. He and Bridget always listened to me, calmed me, explained everything more than once, and believed in me even when I didn’t believe in myself. They became part of my family. Mr. Totten took this difficult case that took over 4 years to complete and never gave up!!! We made probably a dozen court appearances and he was always organized, very professional in all ways, very prepared and very knowledgeable of the law. At court he always made sure I was prepared and comfortable. This divorce was the hardest thing in my life that I ever had to go through and I would not have wanted anyone else by my side. John Totten hit a grand slam….. he got me full custody of my boys and everything else that I asked for. He was nothing short of amazing. When I got my verdict I know that he and Bridget were truly happy for me!! Mr. Totten: Thank you for sharing this journey with me and protecting and saving my boys and myself!! I will always remember what you did for me!!!!
