I am the founder and principal attorney of RAXTER LAW, P.A.. I am a Southern California native born and raised in Wildomar, California. I remember before Wildomar, Menifee, Murrieta, were even cities. A husband and father of a teenage daughter who has learned some great lawyering skills from her father and attempts to use those skills to negotiate all aspects of her life such as homework, chores, etc. My daughter has taught me a work and life balance. She lets me know when I am too deeply involved in a case to lift my head up and take a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for a stuffy and judgmental lawyer that only wears suits, let me give you some names of great lawyers. I pride myself that my office is approachable, relaxed, and here to serve our clients in their best interest. if you are looking for a friendly lawyer that might be wearing a Hawaiian shirt during your consultation, then I am yours.

My belief is that I would rather have a "client for life, than once". I have built my office from a solo practice to a two-office firm with five attorneys that concentrate on different areas of the law. This allows us to serve clients in a professional manner but most importantly in a cost-effective way. I am extremely proud of my involvement with the Alzheimer’s Association and I have the honor of being a Estate Planning and Legal Issues instructor with the Inland Empire Alzheimer’s Association.

I am admitted to both the California State Bar and the United States District Court of the Central and Southern Districts, and a Certified Veterans Attorney with the Veterans Administration. Prior to entering law practice, I spent about 10 years a National Sales Specialist with a large electronics company and then as a Law Enforcement Officer in Southern California. 

I have been appointed a Special Master with the State Bar of California, Law Professor in the subjects to Real Property, Ethics, and Wills/Trusts, and have testified as a Expert Witness in Probate/Trust matters.

I have conducted various classes and seminars to businesses and individuals. As a SCORE business law instructor and Estate Planning presenter with the Alzheimer’s Association. I have legal articles published and am a regular contributor to legal publications and local newspapers. I serve or have served on the board of directors for Menifee Chamber of Commerce, Menifee Valley hospital, and Canine Support Teams.

I look forward to having myself or my office assist you with your legal needs.

An absolute winner
After enduring a challenging and complex legal battle for years, and having worked with multiple attorneys to no avail, I finally found success with Jeremiah Raxter. His exceptional legal acumen and unique approach were evident from the start. Unlike others before him, Jeremiah brought innovative strategies and insights to the table, which were instrumental in resolving my case. Throughout the entire process, his dedication never wavered. He demonstrated remarkable consistency, always staying vigilant and proactive. His commitment not only led to the resolution of my case but also brought about several additional positive outcomes that exceeded my expectations. Jeremiah’s determination and expertise were truly the game changers in my legal journey. I am immensely grateful for his service and highly recommend him to anyone in need of a skilled and dedicated attorney. The best possible outcome in my case was a direct result of his hard work and perseverance, and for that, I will always be thankful.

Highly recommended!
We were involved in a very contentious probate case as Legal Guardians. Our grandson is a child with significant special needs. His parents were unwilling to admit their son has disabilities, and insisted to court that we had made them up to try and limit parent visitations. The parents attempted to have our Guardianship revoked. Mr. Jeremiah Raxter did six things extraordinarily well for us: kept us on an even keel when we were reeling, gave rock solid legal advice that kept us on firm footing, did the research necessary for us to feel confident in front of the judge, was on top of it strategy-wise, helped us understand rationale for every step. Most importantly, Mr Raxter's strategy in the courtroom led to the parents agreeing to withdraw their petition to have the guardianship revoked. He then helped negotiate a deal for us with the parents' attorney to gradually increase visitations based on parents' participation in our grandson's treatment and in his education. We couldn't be happier!

helped my family with probate and wrongful death
I went to Raxter law to seek help with a probate because son was killed in a car accident. Mr. raxter helped me with the probate and then informed me that I could seek money from the other driver. His office then helped me with the wrongful death and we received more than I ever hoped for. I am in tears and very thankful. I would use Mr. raxter and Raxter law again.

Terrific Service and Very Responsive
We are dealing with a HECM loan and Payout, Jeremiah was able to help us close out the fiduciary responsibilities for the Payout as required by the lender and HECM Loan. I would not hesitate to use Raxter Law for similar needs. You get an expert and an advocate that stands with you.

Phenomenal
When we first walked out of Jeremiah Raxter’s law office, I sat in the car and cried... tears of relief. I had a complex family issue that, over time, became more complex. But after the first meeting, I felt such peace and confidence that this was going to be handled well. This crazy hard situation became simple and straightforward and I am forever grateful.

Caring and Thorough
I used this attorney for a will and power of attorney. He is very thorough and he and his staff are very kind and want to assure that everything is complete and accurate. I was also pleased to see that his staff had masks on to protect us during COVID. I will be calling him soon to work on my Living Trust.

Best Lawyer in Riverside County, One you can trust!
This is now the second time that I have used Raxter Law. They are my go- to for anything having to do with civil litigation, business contracts, bankruptcy, and probate. Jeremiah is pleasant to work with and is very prompt in answering all questions, and responds very fast to emails! I like that! I have used him 2 times now, and this time for a termination of cohabitation agreement. Their office is very nice and inviting, the customer service is top notch, and Jeremiah has a very knowledgeable understanding of all the rules, regulation and laws that govern our state in order to procure the proper documents and litigate in a fashion that is favorable to the client. He also does wills and trusts, which will be the next area I use his services for. If you are looking for a lawyer in Menifee, or all of the inland empire, then Jeremiah at Raxter Law is the one to call! Thank you Raxter Law for your attorney services in Menifee ca. Great to have a local lawyer to handle any business that arises. A+ Best Riverside County Lawyer.

Jeremiah Raxter
Jeremiah Raxter was a great Attorney . He was able to handle our case with easy understandable langue. He was fast and to the point with no trouble or extra problems.

The best lawyer you will ever find
Mr. Raxter is the greatest lawyer you will ever meet. We have been with Mr. Raxter for 7 years. He is the kind of lawyer you can have for the rest of your life. All of his fees are upfront and discussed with you prior. He is friendly, kind, and extremely intelligent. We first went to him for a trust issue that we had already paid $30,000 for 3 years services to another Temecula lawyer with no success in our case. He proceeded to charge us $3000 for 3 years of service on the same case. In 3 years time he settled the case for us . Since then we have taken many other neighbors and friends to him. You will really like him . He is ALWAYS available to talk to you personally. As you can see I don't have enough good things to say about the man. Thank God We Found Him Dayla and Stephen Clark Menifee Calif

I would definitely refer!
Jeremiah learned of my "squatter" situation and he said he could help - and he did. He was the Godsend I needed to get out of the hell I found myself in. Whether you need a lawyer for wills and trusts or for property issues, Jeremiah is your man!

Highly recommended!!!!
What a Godsend it was finding Mr. Raxter and my family and I are so very grateful for all his guidance handling some paperwork issues that we were left baffled by. Honestly, we had been waiting for weeks to be seen by another attorney and it was so much simpler to reach and connect with Jeremiah I think it was just the next day we met up and got such wonderful advice! His office was great, great location and again, so easy to reach and get quick answers! I am so grateful I found him and will definitely will use him in all future legal matters and you won’t regret doing the same! Really great guy!!!

Living Trust
My elderly father utilized the services of Baxter Law to have his Last Will & Testament updated to a Living Trust. Jeremiah Baxter spoke in laymen terms, was helpful in answering questions, and was to the point...making the transition an easy process.

Words cannot express my gratitude
On May 13, 2017 a friend dropped off her 9 day old baby so she could get mental help which she didn't do and instead disappeared. Mr. Raxter applied for emergency guardianship of the baby and I was granted it today, only one week after meeting with him the first time. Thank you so much for all your help and your prompt attention to this situation. Words cannot express my gratitude.

Grateful client for two years
Jeremiah Raxter is a man of integrity. After searching for an attorney in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego, he was the best attorney who was willing to take my case related to educational law. He was the best attorney who actually listened to me. My case was a "David versus Goliath" with Goliath ultimately winning. I do not blame Mr. Raxter for our loss. The school district had all the financial backing they needed through the tax system. I came to the harsh reality that public entities protect other public entities. Mr. Raxter represents the "underdog cases" when other law offices are primarily concerned about how much money will they make. Attorneys have a bad reputation of being in the profession to get rich. I have been Mr. Raxter's client for two years. I have never sensed that riches are his goal in life. His fees are the lowest that I have encountered. As a professional, he sincerely wants to help his clients through their times of crisis. On August 10, 2016, I again became a client of his for another matter. Mr. Raxter is a professional while also being human. He demonstrates kindness, humility, competence, humor, and compassion. His staff is also great! I am entrusting my son to his tutorage via an internship. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending people to Mr. Raxter. If his areas of expertise do not match your needs, he will do his best to recommend another law office to you. Though my relationship with him remains attorney-client, I consider him and his office staff as my friends. I will continue to hire Mr. Raxter to represent me if further needs arise.
