What can be said for Mr. Dierlam besides being fair, reliable, just an overall great lawyer. Mr. Dierlam took my nightmare of a custody battle (mainly ruined because of my last lawyer didn’t care at all) and was able to make it a bearable reality. Since he took my case my life finally feels more at ease. He took the time to get to know me and my case and he helped me any way he could. He is very personable in which he himself will always reply to any email/phones calls, you will never hear from a secretary. I’m thankful for all that he has done and I will always keep him as my Lawyer.
I highly recommend this gentleman to anyone in need of a family court lawyer.
I had the pleasure of working as Randy's legal secretary for 2 years. During that time he was very professional and displayed much compassion. Knowing he is knowledgable and hardworking, when my parents had the unfortunate event of filing for divorce after 21 years, I recommended Randy to handle the case. He did so in the best manner possible, my parents were pleased with the results and it went smoothly. I would recommend Randy for future cases.
I have used Randall Dierlam as my attorney in a couple different suits, and I was very happy with the outcomes. He was able to obtain settlements for me and I thought he handled the case and dealt with the insurance companies in a way that I would not have been able to on my own. He was reliable, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I would recommend him and I will definately hire him again if needed.
Mr. Dierlam has handled various cases for me through the last decade and he has always been successfull in obtaining results on my behalf. I found him to be ethical, honest, hard working and responsive. He is a Sole Practitioner, so you do need to realize that it takes him time to get back to calls at times, but other than that, he has done a great job for me. I have also referred him to friends and family and they have been very happy. You can trust him because he has a strong moral character unlike some other attorneys I have known, or heard of from others. His rates are fair and competitive, and he doesn't rack up unessessary work in order to benefit himself. If you are an honest person, you will be happy with using him for your Family Law case.
This review is based upon my 8 years of experience utilizing the outstanding services of Mr. Dierlam. He has been a true professional from day one through today. He continues to help me properly navigate the mine-field of divorce and child custody that I wish upon no one.
Mr. Dierlam has been extremely clear and straight forward in his wise counsel and dealing with the courts. Most importantly he has helped me maintain my sanity in dealing with an ever-growing bitter, angry, and hostile ex-wife. He has been very clear in explaining the various steps and the costs of the steps throughout all these years going through this seemingly never ending process. He has year in and year out provided more service and legal counsel that what he actually billed me for. I have invested a significant amount of money in this legal fight and find that I have most likely found the most cost-efficient and competent family law attorney in Southern California. He is a rare find.
Mr. Dierlam comes with my highest recommendation,
Very unfortunate experience, I agree with the other posts. This Attorney will not follow through, return calls, keep you informed, unorganized. It has cost me 20k and now I have to get another Attorney to clean up his mess.
I gave him 3000 a year ago for a coustoudy hearing he never responded to me has never caled me back I have been calling him nonstop for 7 months he just won't answer the phone don't trust this guy he is a joke
He failed to do what he said he was going to. He didn't show up to a very important court date and failed to follow through with my ex's badgering through her attorney. Never called back or responded to important emails. Said he went over the retainer given to him but has yet to provide an invoice. I feel he was very unethical in his lack there of practice.
He was referred to us from a friend and it turned out to be a huge waste of $2500. Ended up having to retain a different lawyer and spending another $2500.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM AT ALL! He was supposed to help me and didn't. He actually made things worse.
