If you are looking for an elite, top of the class family lawyer, try Mitchell Ehrlich in Lonich & Patton San Jose. My husband hired one of the most aggressive law firms and kidnapped our daughter to start a divorce. Most lawyers didn’t want to deal w/ that notoriously aggressive law firm. Mitch was not intimidated by them at all. He immediately saw through the lies in husband’s claims and promptly started an emergency screening process, then got my daughter back to me! I’m forever grateful for Mitch getting the justice done. Mitch seems to also have a strong network in the legal community in Santa Clara county and is familiar w/ other lawyers and judges. He is well known for his knowledge in family law and even his opponent called him an “excellent family lawyer.” Perhaps some day he may become a judge or politician himself. He is however super busy as all well-known lawyers are, so you may need to try your luck whether he has time accepting your case.

Mr. Ehrlich has helped me on a difficult divorce case. I received excellent advice and representation from him, both on the financial issues and on the custodial issues. From day one, he had great insight on the critical matters in the case. He understood my goals, helped me set the right expectations, successfully diffused DV-related attacks, and obtained the custody that I was seeking.
Mitchell Ehrlich was able to sort through many attacks from our opponents, especially at the onset of the case. Thanks to his advice, I can see that all the right decisions were made and at the right time. Although the case was lengthy, it was not by his fault but rather because of our often unreasonable opponent.
Specifically on my case, Mitchell Ehrlich:
- prevented the move-away of the mother with our young child
- obtained dismissal of TRO and withdrawal of DV trial from our opponent
- obtained immediate 47/53 custody
- prevailed at custody trial, obtaining 50/50 custody
- avoided trial on highly contested separation of property
- prevailed at custody trial, obtaining my school choice for child
Finally, Mitchell Ehrlich works fast; his productivity is enormous.

I retained Mitchell about 6 years ago in a child custody case and continue to consult him with custody modifications. He is exceptionally realistic and objective. A combination of his responsiveness, background and vast knowledge of family law and court system, has provided me with comfort during stressful custody settlements. The office is centrally located and the staff has always been professional and helpful. I highly recommend Mitchell.

I retained Mr. Ehrlich to reperesent in a my divorce and child custody case. During the course of our case, we had two separate trials and we won both. I was very impressed at his knowledge of the law and his performance in the courtroom. I felt very confident throughtout and he always kept me very informed and on top of things. His associate Julia and his office staff were very professional and responsive as well.

I retained Mitchell for handling my divorce case. It was a fairly simple case, I was barely married for three months, and there were no kids involved, no jointly held property or any other kind of assets. There were two court hearing and the entire process took nearly 2 months.
He is definitely knowledge and outspoken. For example, in the second hearing, he checked some information on his iPhone and updated me.
1. Always delayed in responding to my emails. I was surprised to notice that even after paying a high retainer, there were times when he simply didnâ€™t reply to some of my emails.
2. He was never on time for the hearings.
And, the worst
Too expensive, simple case like mine costed over 10 K
