John B. Chason
In his over 20 years of practice, John B. Chason has dedicated himself to understanding and achieving the goals of his clients. He understands that every family law case has its own unique set of issues and challenges and that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Each case requires individual examination with deep attention to detail. As a Certified Family Law Specialist, John has the legal knowledge to provide his clients with the highest level of representation, and as an experienced litigator in both family law and criminal defense, he has the courtroom presence and skills to put that knowledge to use.
John’s clients appreciate that he takes the time to explain each stage of their case and to make sure that they understand their options prior to making decisions on how to proceed. John has extensive experience in handling all types of family law issues, including child custody, support in both simple and complex cases, and dividing the community estate.
Since graduating from the Ohio State University College of Law, John has successfully argued in the court of appeals in the published case of Ross v. Figueroa, and has written articles on the admissibility of evidence at trial and the evolution of the law regarding domestic violence. Previously, John was actively involved in the Southern California Family Law Inn of Court, where he oversaw monthly CLE presentations and grew membership for the organization.
