Senior Litigation Attorney

About John Machuca, Senior Litigation Attorney

John is an attorney that values a heavy dose of pragmatism in the realm of family law. He strives to ensure his clients are put in a position to make educated decisions over the course of litigation or in negotiating with their spouse/opposing counsel. One of John’s degrees is in education, so, he is uniquely equipped to break down complicated legal concepts into digestible nuggets of information. His clients, therefore, are enabled – and empowered – in dictating their course through a difficult time.

He is a big believer in looking at the facts and organizing a systematic approach. “I work to spot the issues that the Court will be most concerned with and take the necessary steps to ensure that those issues are fully fleshed out in a manner that most benefits my client,” he said.

While not in the courtroom, John enjoys his time with his dogs and is an avid baseball fan.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
