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.

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.
