John Vukmanovic is the co–founder and a partner of Delman Vukmanovic LLP. John is highly regarded among his peers in the legal communities of Los Angeles and Orange counties. His highly aggressive, yet sensible approach to civil litigation routinely yields successful outcomes for his new and returning clients.

Top Civil Litigation Lawyer in Los Angeles and Orange County

As a “bulldog” litigator and consummate trial attorney, John’s comprehensive background in civil litigation comprises a long string of successful outcomes for clients facing complex business and real estate litigation, as well as employment, professional liability and intellectual property disputes. While each case is different, John approaches all civil disputes the same way: striving for maximum effectiveness and leverage in civil litigation while maintaining efficiency.

Large Firm Litigation Experience

John acquired his early legal experience in the insurance industry, subsequently rising to prominence as an attorney with the large national law firm of Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith, LLP, and later with the high–profile business and entertainment litigation firm of Freedman & Taitelman, LLP. His experience makes him uniquely qualified to understand his clients’ challenges, and to achieve their ultimate goals.

Community Involvement

John proactively dedicates a significant amount of time assisting individuals of limited means in pro bono matters and devotes energy to a range of charitable organizations in the greater Los Angeles and Orange County areas.
Recognized for Superlative Results and Service as Business Litigation Attorney

Among his achievements, John has been ranked by Benchmark Litigation as a “Litigation Star” and named by Los Angeles Magazine as a Southern California “Super Lawyer” in Business Litigation. “Super Lawyers,” a peer–designated honor, is bestowed upon only the top five percent of lawyers practicing in California. In addition, John has been awarded Martindale–Hubbell’s Client Distinction Award, an honor conferred by his clients in appreciation of John’s value in quality of service, communication skills, and professional diligence.

Please describe a case in the last year or two where you made a big difference.

Delman Vukmanovic LLP represented the defendant and cross-complainant in the purchase of a commercial property with undisclosed environmental problems. The complaint alleged causes of action of: (1) breach of contract; (2) breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing; (3) specific performance; (4) declaratory relief; and (5) conversion. We filed a cross-complaint for: (1) breach of contract; and (2) declaratory relief. Following bench trial and post-trial briefing, the court entered judgment in favor of our client on the complaint, and awarded all requested damages sought in our cross-complaint.

How did you build a successful practice?

Although we pride ourselves as being seasoned advocates with large law firm experience, we remain committed to the personal service, creativity and flexible fee structure associated with a boutique law firm. We tailor our guidance to suit each client’s specific needs and through hard work, we consistently achieve decisive, positive results.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?

• Experience and a successful track record • Responsive and accessible • Ethical and trustworthy advocate • Someone who will be clear and upfront about potential outcomes • A willingness to offer creative fee arrangements when needed • Ability to be aggressive when needed

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?

Depending on the type of matter, an attorney with local knowledge can be very beneficial to the success of a client’s case. Delman Vukmanovic LLP works exclusively in California and has in-depth knowledge of the state laws, codes and procedures. Additionally, the firm has established relationships with resources – experts, investigators, etc. – that prove to be helpful. We also have familiarity with local judges, courtrooms and opposing lawyers which has also helped to better leverage our clients’ positions.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?

• Our experience with similar cases • General strategy for the case • Possible outcomes • Who will handle the case • Estimated fees/costs and time to resolve the case

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?

While some attorneys have a “fight fire with fire” attitude, our lawyers take a different tack, preferring to fight fire with water. Tenacious? Efficient? Of course, but our attorneys strive to swiftly and unequivocally shut the door on the other side before significant resources are expended in the often contentious litigation process. But if a courtroom battle is unavoidable, our lawyers have proven reputations as tough, thorough, aggressive trial attorneys who forcefully represent and doggedly protect our clients’ interests in a wide range of business and corporate disputes.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Being able to help many different types of people resolve their problems, or being an integral part of helping them protect their livelihood, such as forming a new business. We’re able to apply our expertise in a wide range of legal issues and ensure clients have the best possible outcome.

What are your other interests in addition to law?

I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, surfing, and paddle boarding. I also enjoy live concerts, sporting events and travel. Finally, I also volunteer and serve on a nonprofit board at my childrens’ school.

Result: Ruling in favor of our client; claim dismissed.
