John R Schilling, APC

The Face of Family Law 

With over five decades of experience, you could say family law is in John R. Schilling’s blood. Once dubbed among Orange County’s respected “Kings of the Courts,” Mr. Schilling has a core principle to provide his clients with individual, exceptional, and compassionate service that is unwavering.

With proven expertise the legal team at the firm offers the best and brightest minds in Family Law. Team members are carefully selected for their experience in Family Law, compassion for clients, and supportive skills.

At the forefront, a core value of integrity underpins every decision and interaction. “It is not about telling you what you want to hear; it is about delivering on our word, every time,” says Mr. Schilling. “Most clients have little experience with the legal system, but they do know when promises are made and if they are kept.”

The life changing impact his legal expertise has made for clients is unprecedented. He recently received a graduation invitation for a young man who was an infant when Mr. Schilling litigated his custody case. “At our firm, we treat each client as an individual with a unique set of challenges and expectations. We address their needs with meaningful attention, empathy for their circumstances, and a commitment to advocating on their behalf.”

Mr. Schilling’s participation in family law industry organizations is well-documented including American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers; American Association for Justice; National Board of Trial Advocates. Given his tenure, he was also among the first group of lawyers to achieve the distinction of Certified Family Law Specialist. He is also the first and only Orange County attorney to be board certified in family law by the prestigious National Board of Trial Advocacy.

Known as an early riser, Mr. Schilling is often in his office just after sunrise reviewing his files for the day or speaking with clients. His commitment to his practice and clients is paramount.

“I love the practice of law so much – I always say if you do something you really love it’s not like going to work.”
