I was referred to Lerandeau & Lerandeau from a friend in law school clerking for another firm. I am very glad that she referred me to this firm because they are the best in the services that they offer in the Fresno/Clovis area. I would highly recommend working with this firm in all legal matters pertaining to divorce, separation, family law, child custody and other similar situations. They were extremely professional, upfront about the entire process and easy to work with. We didn't have any surprises in terms of billing or how the process would work. They offered top-notch legal advice, and helped navigate me through a very difficult time in my life. They were extremely understanding of the sensitive nature of this matter, and were able to answer all of my questions and make me feel very comfortable about the overall process. I worked directly with Paul Lerandeau and then primarily with Rebecca Medina for the bulk of my case. Divorce is never an easy process, but having the right lawyer can make it a lot less painful. Lerandeau & Lerandeau were definitely the right lawyers for my case.
Ms. Medina represented me in a difficult divorce that ended recently. Ms. Medina has many attributes as an outstanding family law attorney. Her most important attribute is that she is extremely trustworthy. All through the process of negotiations with opposing counsel, I felt like I was in good hands, and that she was constantly and genuinely watching out for my best interests. I never felt like she was in any way contributing to protracting the case. In contrast, I felt that she was doing everything possible to resolve the matter as quickly as possible, but with a fair and balanced approach.
In the process, she came up with several creative solutions to difficult circumstances that arose. She was very responsive, and her main focus was to resolve disagreements as efficiently and expeditiously as possible, but without sacrificing my rights and legitimate demands.
When it came to dealing with opposing counsel, she was very firm, but without being confrontational. She refrained from writing inflammatory letters every time my ex-wife crossed the line with her behavior or that of her family members. When it came down to the wire however, such as going in front of a judge, she was extremely knowledgeable and well-prepared, and she was vigorous in defending my rights using solid evidence as opposed to empty rhetoric.
During my interactions with Ms. Medina, she was extremely pleasant to talk to, and she had a very calming demeanor. I felt that she truly cared about my difficult predicament. She was very good at actively listening and analyzing what I had to say before passing judgment or making suggestions. As a client, I felt that on the one hand, she was an excellent advocate for my rights and demands, but on the other hand, she was very good at reigning me in and exercising good client control when she felt I was being unreasonable.
All in all, I believe Ms. Medina is an outstanding family law attorney. I recommend her, without hesitation, to any honest person going through a difficult divorce. She will fight for your rights, and do everything she can to resolve differences in a fair and expeditious manner.
I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone who is looking for a family law lawyer. She is very professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and gets thing done. When I had a concern or a question I always knew that I could call her and she would be available or quick to return my calls or emails.
In court, Rebecca does not waste anytime and gets straight to the point. Above all she is down to earth and was understanding of my fears of being a father and going through the family court system. She listened to my situation only once and knew what strategy would be best to ensure that I would be able to visit with my son as much as possible.
I respected that she didn't just tell me things that I wanted to hear but gave me advice on what I was doing wrong or how I could do things better to increase my chances of a successful outcome at Court. If you are going to Court you will need an attorney like Rebecca who is a strong and yet compassionate person who will stand up for her clients. I am a very satisfied client and will use her again in the future.
Rebecca will fight for her clients. She was quick to response to my concerns and had me prepared for the court process. Through her guidance, I was able to obtain a wonderful child custody out come.
Rebecca was as friendly and helpful as a lawyer can be. She helped me understand the scary roads of a divorce. I always felt I could trust her to give me the right information and she always delivered the information in the most friendly & respectful way possible. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great lawyer!
I cannot write an appreciative endorsement worthy of Rebecca and the professionals at Lerandeau & Lerandeau. She took my volumes of pleadings in a highly emotional family law matter, organizing, researching and formulating the appropriate legal theories and ppresented winning options. Ultimately I prevailed on every issue. This is wholy due to her legal expertise, integrity and humanitarian approach to resolve my case.
Rebecca's ability to communicate verbally and in written form was imperitive to me accomplishing what was in the best interest of my children. She was involved and dedicated to achieving the results I wanted. I would desribe her as empathetic, focused, and goal-oriented.
I highly recommend her for any child custody and/or support case. Having her on my side gave me the confidence and knowledge to make good decisions all along the way. My case took over a year to get the results we we're looking for, but I will say that I had no chance of reaching this tremendous results without her in my corner.
rebecca help me through a very difficult time. She stood up and and gave me a voice in court when no one else could. She knew the law and gave me information about my rights and responbsibillities as a parent. She even spent time after hours working on my case. In my opinion Rebecca is an outstanding lawyer as well as a person.
Rebecca worked diligently on our case and was very supportive.
we felt she was truely in our corner and was working hard to protect our rights and the safety of our daughter
