Adriana
Several months after my divorce was finalized, I had a chance to reconnect with my old boss recently. She referred me to attorney Lewis to review my judgement; she was helped by attorney Lewis in her contentious divorce. Per requested, I sent my final judgement over and expected to pay some fees. A couple days later even with a busy schedule, attorney Lewis called to go over my judgement in great detail as well as answering my questions. He went over scenarios that would benefit me the most even if it meant that I would not need his service. After the phone conversation, attorney Lewis even sent me a long email to recap what was explained to me. He did all this even I’m not his client and with no charge; imagine what more he would do for his actual clients. I know that this is why his name was highly recommended.

Highly Recommend Jeff Lewis
I was referred to Jeff by a friend from work. Jeff was there throughout my divorce answering any questions I had during this difficult process. Jeff listened to everything I had to say and advised me and protected my interest until the final settlement. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone going through a divorce.

Outstanding and knowledgeable divorce attorney who cares about achieving the client’s desired outcome.
I had the opportunity to work with Jeff during a contentious divorce proceeding following a post-judgment RFO by my ex-spouse. Jeff represented me on a 4 hour deposition, and as stressed as I was in advance of that deposition, Jeff’s calm and matter of fact demeanor made the process bearable. He was reassuring, supportive and encouraging throughout the proceeding, and he represented my needs and interests without attacking or demeaning the other party’s position. He was thoroughly prepared and extremely well informed in advance of the hearings, and he raised logical and reasonable considerations of the facts of my position that encouraged and facilitated reasonable cooperation by opposing counsel. I was impressed with how he would calmly ask for clarification of the other party’s position and motivations for taking that position, rather than digging in and fighting for an unreasonable position that might often lead to intractable impasse. This approach commonly leads to increased legal fees being incurred, rather than finding a way to reach agreement, which is what Jeff always seemed to be focused on. Divorce is a grueling, emotional and distressing event that is compounded when children are involved. Jeff Lewis is a compassionate, caring, yet fair and strong divorce attorney who is able to successfully help his clients extract the emotion from the process and focus on the facts. I was fortunate to have Jeff’s counsel during my post-judgment support modification proceedings, and I am grateful for his guidance that he continues to offer to me today. If you are considering an attorney to help protect your rights during divorce, yet afraid of being taken advantage of by the “legal process”, I highly recommend Jeff Lewis. He is outstanding...

Life saver
I met Jeff 3 years ago and new instantly that he was going to help save my life through a very crucial time when I had newborn twins going through a divorce as I interviewed many attorneys and he provided all the support and information I needed to move forward through the most difficult time of my life. Jeff always made himself available to answer any and all of my questions and represent me in a manner that made me feel confident in his ability to get the best outcome under a stressful situation. I feel Jeff has gone above and beyond in his duty as my divorce attorney to do what was best for me and my twin infant and now toddler daughters. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone going through a divorce as he is not only my attorney, but now consider him my friend. He ALWAYS does what's in the best interest of me and my daughters and is always mindful of cost as he realizes what I'm going through as a single parent.

Mr. Lewis gives level headed advice and responds to my questions promptly and professionally. He was readily available to answer my questions about civil restraining orders and really put my mind at ease. I highly recommend him!

Peace of Mind
While facing the most difficult time of my life I was introduced to Jeff. Up to this point I couldn't sleep, was barely keeping it together at work and ate about once a day. The first evening I spoke with Jeff eliminated the physical tension and anxiety of what was ahead. He laid out what was ahead and made it clear and easy to understand. I ate a full meal and got the first good nights sleep I'd had in over a month. Put Jeff in your corner and know he'll keep your best interests at heart because he takes them to heart.

He saved me a lot of money!
Jeff is fantastic at resolving conflicts through a reasonable and thoughtful approach. However, he will not hesitate to take your concerns in front of a judge and fight for what is yours. His knowledge of the law gives him the confidence that makes you feel comfortable during a stressful time.

Knowledgable advocate
Jeff has a clear understanding of the laws and how to apply them to each case. In my case specifically, he knew the most efficient and direct way to communicate with opposing counsel. He is quick on his feet, but can also thoughtfully prepare correspondence that promotes a settlement. In my case, I wanted to avoid costly days in court and he listened and strategized to achieve that goal. Ultimately, he was worth every penny and protected my interest until the final settlement. He is the right person to have in your court!

Gread advocate
Jeff is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and relates to your issues. He's very down to earth, laid back, but very professional at the same time. He's was direct and up front about what chances I had in my case and fought hard for the best outcome possible. I am extremely fortunate that I was able to have him on my side and would not hesitate to hire him again in the future. Great experience and I definitely had the feeling that he was fighting for me.

Jeff Lewis is a great lawyer
Jeff Lewis is easy to communicate with and very knowledgeable about family law. Not only was he a great advocate for me he also represented my case with dignity and grace. He successfully argued my case and I was awarded the exact outcome I was looking for. He is very personable and made the very difficult process of getting divorced (with child custody issues) a little less overwhelming.

Jeff = the key to winning
I've used serval other lawyers before Jeff, however no of them could ever compare. The time, compassion and dedication he took on my case amazed me! The judges love him as a result of his proven ethical behavior. You can not go wrong with having Jeff on your side!

THE BEST ATTORNEY IN OC, Jeffrey Alan Lewis A+++
He fights for you like no other. He has so much class, integrity and respect for his clients and their needs. Judges respect him. If you have a case that needs fighting, this is the man you want on your side and not against you.

Worth it!
I interviewed many lawyers before selecting Jeff. He was very practical and really looked out for what I wanted and the best way to resolve the dissolution. He always gave me suggestions and options that I could choose from and explained everything I needed to know. He was helpful until the very end and always made me feel comfortable.
