Introduction

Mr. Manoogian entered the field of Family Law as a Law Clerk to Suren Toomajian in Oakland, Ca in August of 1973 while still a third year law student at the Santa Clara University School of law, and became an associate in that office upon receiving his JD and passing the California Bar in December 1974. At that time, Mr. Toomajian was unique in specializing in divorce in the San Francisco bay area and was dubbed “THE GREAT SEPARATOR” by San Francisco Chronical columnist Herb Caen in the 1940’s. Establishing his own office : THE LAW OFFICES OF JOHN E. MANOOGIAN at the Kaiser Center in Oakland in 1977, he has practiced in the field of Family Law, exclusively, since that time. In 1982 the office was moved to Walnut Creek, Ca in neighboring Contra Costa County where Mr. Manoogian has continuously practiced since then.
