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!!!!


Eight years ago, I used John Totten during my divorce. He was able to set up an arrangement with our marital property and child support that was not the normal situation. Basically, the property would be split when the children reached the age of majority. Fast forward eight years and we were just able to settle the property issue without a hitch. It looked like we were going to have issues but with the way John Totten worded the original intent of the divorce decree, it removed any doubt as to what the agreement was. Bridgett was a huge part of this and is very knowledgeable and does a fantastic job too. I would definitely recommend using John Totten.

I would like to say thank you to John, Bridget, and the entire staff at the office.  They all helped me through my a hard time in my life that was heart breaking and embarrassing.  John took the time to listen and advised me through what was best.  Bridget also helped me tremendously and both was very caring.  I highly recommend John and his staff for any legal needs.  Thank you again and God bless you all.


I highly recommend Mr. Totten and his firm. He and his staff were wonderful to work with. He and his paralegal, Bridget, were both knowledgeable, personable, and very efficient with my case. Each and every time I contacted them, I received a very timely response with relevant knowledge and information vital to my question. He and Bridget both answered all my questions throughout each of the steps in the modification process, including the discovery, deposition, and actual trial day and were absolutely wonderful to work with. Mr. Totten worked to reach an agreement that was beneficial to both me and my children and was relentless in his objective for the best possible outcome. If there had been a trial vs. an agreement, he was well prepared and had discussed all possible outcomes and options with me. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mr. Totten, Bridget, and also Alicia, who always directed me to who I needed at the time. If you are looking for an attorney and staff who are vested in your situation and your best interests, look no further than Mr. Totten and staff.


I can’t thank Mr. Totten and his staff enough for the handling of our custody case for my husbands young daughter. Due to the expertise of Mr. Totten in the court room and in advance to that we were added to the short list of father’s who won custody of their child. This wasn’t an easy case to handle and I don’t think another law office would have handled our case as well. Thanks so much Mr. Totten, Bridget, and staff.
