Settlement minded.
Trial ready.

John T. Sylvester handled my divorce case a while back. He managed the case professionally and aggressively, treated me with respect and kindness, answered all my questions patiently. Sound, realistic legal counsel. Was on my side and had my best interest in mind from start to finish. Easy to reach and gets back to you very promptly. Responsible, reliable, trustworthy and highly skilled in family law. Highest recommendations!

Their law office has a very comfortable setting, which helps put you at ease when discussing your needs.  They were quite knowledgeable, ethical and courteous.  Attorney Lizzie Louis was professional and direct.  We had worked with a different firm when going through custody proceedings and it's unfortunate we didn't know about them at the time. I would definitely recommend coming in for a consultation if the need arises.

John S. was my attorney during the divorce process.  He was very attentive, professional, and provided great service and advice during my divorce proceedings.  I really like the fact he always kept me informed of any status changes and took quick action on anything that was needed
to get the divorce wrapped up.  I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends and family that require such services.  Thank you John!!

I provide my highest recommendation for John T. Sylvester. I got referred to him by a friend. John is a bright attorney who grasps the crux of your case in just the first consult. He was kind enough to go out of his way and even help me with the initial steps in my case, free
of charge! He is sympathetic, smart, reliable and honest. He knows exactly what to fight for, and what does not matter in the big picture. I had to hire another counsel because my case was not in SD, but I would have otherwise hired him in the blink of an eye. I have interviewed several attorneys and he was undoubtedly one of the very best.

Flat-out fantastic family law firm in San Diego. If you are fortunate enough to retain the Law Offices of David C. Beavans, you'll find yourself with ethical, knowledgeable, straight-forward and sympathetic counsel. Attorney Elizabeth Louis and the rest of the staff will treat you like family, advocate tirelessly for your cause, and take the time to demystify the legal process. Absolutely no B.S. here - just diligent, compassionate partnership and results. I can't recommend them highly enough.
