- ***** “Michelle is articulate, knowledgeable and professional, to the highest degree. AND, she handled our unique situation with great sensitivity to the emotional issues that came up in the course of our meeting. Hers was an uncommon and extremely generous display of kindness, and for that we will always work with her in the future, as well as recommend her to all of our acquaintances.”
– Julie A.
- ***** “This is a very high 5 star rating for Michelle Lerman. She is outstanding right across the board and professionally she is at the top of her game. Michelle took a frantic and overwhelmed person like me (my wife and I worked hard our whole lives and now we were intimidated by the mystery of all the legal jargon of estate planning) and she made it simple and logical to understand. She is not only well-versed and a total expert in her field but she is also a great listener. Michelle was able to take some of my preconceived concepts and was able to guide us back to what was really best for us.
Bottom line: Michelle is honest, professional, very responsive, and obviously out for our best interest. Michelle is a true expert who is very knowledgeable and thorough in Estate Planning, Living Trusts and Probate. On top of everything she has high ethics and is a pleasure to work with. Gigantic thumbs-up!“

- ***** “Jeff was awesome as a lawyer helping on a For Sale by owner deal. He helped me find the right transaction coordinator, add terms that were beneficial and covered my risk. Also very pleasant and efficient and reasonably priced. Full 5 stars..will be using him again for sure.”
– Gary M.
- ***** “I must say that we were more than pleased with [Jeff’s] expert guidance and efforts…Jeff was thoughtful, efficient, precise in his approach and most of all, he made us feel comfortable and relaxed, as if we were more of a friend than a client. I want to thank the Lerman Law Partners for meeting with us and I hope to retain their services in the future. Highly recommended!!!”
– Joel H.
- ***** “Jeff is a phenomenal attorney, one of the best in my book. He is very attentive, professional, efficient and straight forward. His assistance in regards to real estate Investments and specialized knowledge regarding each unique opportunity has prevented possible land mines that may have occurred otherwise without his assistance, saving us both time and money. As a Commercial Real Estate professional specializing in listing and selling multi-family property at the Charles Dunn Company in West Los Angeles I look forward to doing more business with you in the near future Jeff!”
- ***** “Our original lawyer was running up exorbitant fees, but accomplishing nothing. I won’t say who it was, but she’s a partner at a large, well respected SF Firm. We were terrified of spending more money on attorneys, but we really had no choice. One of the attorneys we consulted recommended Jeff Lerman‘s firm in San Rafael. Anyway, that was almost nine months ago and Jeff basically saved our lives. Without Jeff’s help, I believe we would have lost our investment (really our retirement savings). Thank you Jeff, our family will always be grateful. Brilliant, compassionate lawyer.”
– Linda R.
- ***** “I recently engaged Michelle Lerman to prepare my Estate Trust. Up to this point I did not have so much as a simple Willl prepared, let alone any end-of-life decisions made. As this was a highly personal and somewhat intimidating process to go through, I was very pleased with Michelle and her associates’ support and responsiveness in addressing my many questions and guiding me along the process. Michelle and her staff are very accommodating, patient, flexible and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Lerman Law to anyone who needs estate planning services.”
– Dan S.
- ***** “Jeff Lerman is attentive, quick to act, and reasonable in his fees. Jeff has always made himself available to answer any and all questions. He has shown me all sides of a transaction and shown me my potential weak spots. Excellent real estate attorney for investors to utilize.”
– Marie M.
- ***** “I have worked and consulted with Jeff and Michelle on several matters for mutual clients, and they have been nothing but a pleasure. They are obvious experts and the best at what they do, and everything is handled with professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail. I work with a lot of different attorneys, and this team is way up there!”
– Stephen M.
- ***** “I have been using Jeff for nearly 10 years. He has assisted us with numerous business and corporate issues. Jeff always gives you options and best/worst case scenarios so you can make well informed decisions. Jeff has earned my explicit trust.
Michelle has also done a thorough and excellent job helping my wife and I with our estate planning. As a business owner this is an important and complex issue.
I have also recently finished a lengthy 3 way business negotiation with Phil Diamond’s assistance. Very positive outcome thanks to Phil’s guidance.
I wouldn’t use any other law firm other than Lerman Law.”
– Jeffrey P.
- ***** “Jeff is quick, accurate, and great to work with. Highly recommended! We used him for a Joint Venture agreement that was not even related to Real Estate. Jeff is a solid all-around attorney with a great personal style.”
– David P.
- ***** “Michelle was extremely helpful working with an elderly woman I referred to her. She was clear, patient, compassionate, and able to grasp the complex issues involved. I am very grateful for her help and would not hesitate to use her myself or refer to her again.”
– Mark S.
- ***** “I have worked with Michelle for over a decade. Michelle is smart, thorough, responsive, detail-oriented, up-to-date on what is most important in the law as its relevant for our family, and she is a delight to work with – positive, friendly, professional and accessible!. Michelle makes a challenging process, seamless and painless. I highly recommend her and the Lerman Law Partners practice.”
– Fay Z.
- ***** “My wife and I can’t say enough for the wonderful guidance Jeff Lerman provided us during the conflict we had at the end of our escrow period a couple of weeks ago. We were thankfully able to finally close on the property a couple of days after we spoke to Jeff. His assistance during that time was truly appreciated and, while we are just now coming up for air, we didn’t want another day to go by without thanking him and “Yelp”ing. I would recommend Jeff highly for any real estate issues that may arise.”
