Great Lawyer
A good friend of mine recommended MavEryck to me, after I was hit on my motorcycle. I had 4 surgeries and missed over a year of work in total. MavEryck hit the ground running and was there every step of the way. This was my first time with a personal injury claim. He took the time to make sure I understood things. He provided constant updates, checked in to see how I was doing and was available when I had questions or concerns. I was able to just concentrate on my recovery knowing MavEryck was there handling business. I am very happy with the terms of my settlement and am forever grateful to MavEryck Stevenson. He was a Light, in a somewhat dark time for me. I highly recommend.

Gets the job done
MavEryck is a wonderful lawyer. He’s very patient and fair. He took the time to explain the pro’s and con’s of what I would be facing. MavEryck is very thorough and pays attention to every detail. He settled my case out of court, making it so I did not have to attend (what could’ve been) several upcoming court dates. I recommend him if your looking for a great lawyer.

Federal Court Filing
MavEryck made himself available on short notice to take on a complicated and time sensitive filing in Federal Court on our son's behalf. He stayed closely in touch with us and kindly, professionally, and successfully addressed the situation.

Great experience with MavEryck
My first online attorney experience and I feel lucky to have worked with Mr. Stevenson. We spoke at length on the phone where he clearly explained everything I needed to know, answered my questions thoughtfully and competently. Mr. Stevenson's explanations and following documentation are easily to understand. As I am in the beginning phase of opening a business I am sure I will need his services again and hope he will be available. He anticipated a delivery date of Monday and I am pleased that he delivered his response 4 days ahead of schedule.

Mr. Stevenson lost me my rent controlled house in Santa Monica though I am almost 75 years old and had lived there for 11 years.
I hired Stevenson because he was recommended to me by the LA County Bar referral service. I had been harassed by my landlord and her daughter for 10 years and they refused to fix anything, even when ordered to by the city in arbitration. They had been in violation of health and city codes for 3 years without correction, which in Santa Monica is considered tenant harassment with fines attached. They illegally turned the garage into a rental TWICE while refusing to make repairs for their legal tenants and were cited and fined. They removed the hookups to my washer and dryer. They gave me multiple bogus 3 Day notices. They ordered me to get rid of my cat though I have a pet clause in my lease. They came into my house and private backyard without notice multiple times and gave me so many 24 hour notices, not in the proper time frame and not filled out as required, that I had a stack of them over an inch deep, while they never fixed anything. I had an 810 credit rating, plenty of money in my local bank, enough money in cash in the house to pay the rent and zero debt. I never missed a rent payment in my life. The postman did not pick up the mail for 4 or 5 days in a row, though that was the way I paid my rent every month. By the time I noticed, the rent was 3 days late and this was on a weekend. I immediately notified my landlord and her daughter by email that this was not intentional. I asked for her bank # so I could do a direct deposit to her account that day. My car was being repaired so I couldn't drive the rent to her and I have no smart phone for Uber. For two previous years they didn't cash my rent checks for 6 months and then cashed them all at once, so the rent being a few days late should not have burdened them. Instead they came the next day, Sunday, when I was home and posted a 3 day Notice on my door plus a demand for $153 in late fees, illegal per my lease. The rent envelope, clearly addressed, was still clipped to the mail slot adjacent to the door. The didn't take it, nor knock or ring the bell. They would not answer the phone. The phone numbers on the Notice and the late fee demand were different from each other and not phone numbers known to me. I called repeatedly. I emailed repeatedly. No response. 4 times over the previous 2 years the daughter had threatened me in emails trying to get me to move, saying her mother was going to move into my house (a lie), and used fighting words in person. In SM it is illegal for the landlord to even discuss this if they haven't filled out the forms with both rent control and the city attorney and put the relocation fee in trust. They never did this, and the last threatening email I'd received was just a few days before they posted my door. Then, though I handed the rent to the (new) mailman and he made sure it went out that night in plenty of time to satisfy, they claimed they never received it and sued me for eviction. I never received the envelope back in the mail. This was a slam dunk case of retaliatory eviction and a set up. I finally got their bank # from my co-tenant and deposited the rent. They put the money back in my account and closed their account. Mr. Stevenson had me deposit $1000 in his trust account and sign a contract. He told me we would completely discuss the case later and paralegals would go over the case with me if he was not available. NEVER happened. I sent him some of the emails I'd received from the landlord but none of the other supporting documents. He never met with me. He said he was out of town. When I sent him an email saying I was very nervous that he was unprepared and asked if he needed the other proof of retaliation and harassment he said no, that the judge wouldn't look at it. He was 1/2 an hour late to court and unprepared. He did not meet with me during lunch,never protested or cited SM law, mounted NO defense. I had been sick and was confused. I was not allowed to speak for myself. The State Bar Court has advised me to file against him.
