Michael Eyre settled my case with ease at a low cost
Michael Eyre did an outstanding job of representing me this summer in an ADA case regarding my family’s property in Southern California. His extensive experience in these types of cases made things run smoothly and gave me a lot of peace of mind. Our case never went to trial because of Michael’s experience dealing with these types of cases with the addition of having battled this same attorney representing the plaintiff. That other attorney knew that it was going to be very difficult winning a case against Michael Eyre. It was also a pleasure working with Michael. He was easily accessible, provide excellent clear advice, and keep me posted along the way with all new developments. I am strongly recommending Michael Eyre for anyone looking for a professional, easy-to-work with, easily accessible and case-winning attorney.

Michael Eyre, Esq. (our Mr. Lincoln)
Here is our story: We were in one hot-real-estate-mess, with the other party of two (2) attorneys trying to hood-wink us for a lot. Two against one, from a big Irvine firm. My husband must have called at least ten (10) attorneys, and when he called Michael … we knew – Michael was the one! He is cautious, he is honest, and he knows the law. And Michael Eyre does his homework. Always available for us, explaining things, and advising us. Michael knows exactly what he is doing. Siting case law in every circumstance. Negotiating when negotiating is necessary, whatever skillset is required to be successful. Michael Eyre was the best thing that happen to us during this trying time. At the end of our case, not only are we grateful to be his clients, we would refer Michael Eyre, Esq. (our Mr. Lincoln) anytime.

Review Michael Eyre
Michael Eyre was a professional and very knowledgeable about the law. I never felt pressured...only informed about my options. I was always able to reach him via phone or email. The letters and paperwork he filed for the courts were articulate and very detailed that they blew me away. I had never been through this process before and working with Michael Eyre made me feel comfortable and very well represented. He listened to me and told my story and in the end I felt like no other lawyer could have done a better job. I would highly recommend him as an attorney!

Michael Eyre is absolutely phenomenal!
Mr. Eyre is extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, and well informed with respect to California law, civil litigation, and civil procedure. He was sensitive to my financial situation which really helped. He is optimistic and confident with the law. I did not have trouble reaching him on the phone. My messages where quickly returned and setting appointments were never a problem. He gives his utmost attention to your case and pays close attention to your concerns. He reviews court documents with speed and precision and quotes statutes and case law in opposition to or in support of whatever best suits your position. His calm and personable demeanor when speaking with you leaves you with a feeling that you are in good hands, which he has proven to me several times in court. Mr. Eyre is a remarkable attorney. He is truly an angel in a three-piece suit. Thank you Mr. Eyre!

Michael Eye : A knowledgeable lawyer you can trust
When I think of Mr. Eyre, all of the above words come to mind. In addition, Mr. Eyre is a warm, friendly, person who understands the high cost of legal fees. He can be relied upon to not only solve your case but to do so with strategies that will keep costs down whenever possible. Knowledgeable and trustworthy describes Mr. Eyre.

A Knowledgeable, Respectable, and Respectful Attorney
On a personal referral, I sought consultation with Michael Eyre regarding an employment matter about which I considered legal action, Michael listened attentively to the details of the matter, after which he clearly and concisely outlined my options. Following our meeting, several other questions arose as I contemplated those options. I emailed Michael who responded promptly and in detail to my further inquiries. Although I chose not to pursue legal action, I am certain that Michael would have been the perfect lawyer with whom to proceed. I am glad to have consulted with him and I appreciated his counsel and his excellent communication skills. Most importantly, I appreciated his integrity as I never felt any pressure from him to proceed with a lawsuit, and he was completely respectful of my ultimate decision. I would definitely recommend Michael Eyre to anyone seeking a lawyer requiring his specialization; Personal Injury, Business Litigation or Real Estate.

Mr. Eyre is an Honest and Fair Orange County Attorney!
I've known Michael Eyre for several years, and have consulted with him on a variety of matters. I've found his advice to be extremely well-researched and informed, and his fees to be reasonable and fair. I believe that Mr. Eyre is as honest as the day is long - and that is a trait I value highly in an attorney. I highly and whole heartily recommend his services.

compassionate aggressor
Michael always kept me informed. He was very aggressive with the Insurance companies during this matter. He expressed genuine concern regarding my injuries and showed compassion when needed. I would highly recommend him to others.
