John DelisiSan Diego Family Law Attorney John A. Delisi believes it is preferable for the client to have a positive experience with his/her attorney than for him to make a lot of money from the client. To that end, Mr. Delisi charges reasonable fees, often times less than what might be charged, even by attorneys with less experience or less time practicing law and importantly, he does not avoid clients by having a secretary and/or paralegal take messages or return client calls — he returns client calls and emails the same day, the next business day, or even on weekends.

The Attorney-Client relationship is of most importance to Attorney Delisi. Clients recognize this and respond positively (review our latest client reviews here). For instance, a divorce client retained him for representation in three additional divorces. Another divorce client retained him for representation in a Personal Injury accident case. In another case, a legal separation client retained Attorney Delisi for representation in a subsequent divorce case with the same spouse. A pair of clients (husband and wife) in two civil cases retained Mr. Delisi for representation in the preparation of their estate plan. Many clients of John A. Delisi refer others to him for legal representation, such as boyfriends and girlfriends, parents, co-workers, and friends. Of particular note, a client’s spouse referred a friend to him rather than refer the friend to that spouse’s own attorney. San Diego Family Law Attorney John A. Delisi recognizes the importance of good will between attorney and client, acts accordingly, and clients respond favorably.
