Worth Every Penny
I had a Physco Crazy EX wife. Mr. Efron was able to get all of the Emotion of things put to the side and Helped me deal with this Crazy EX Who took me back to court after the Divorce was Finalized, Yes this can happen, But if I would have Spoken to Mr. Efron First I literally would have saved Tens of Thousands of Dollars. What ever you do. Do not go through a Divorce representing yourself. The Courts do not care about you. Only your Attorney Does. Mr. Efron and Sandra his assistant are the BEST!!!!!!

Ms. Mary G
Michael B. Efron and his team were instrumental during my divorce. I have seen some of my close friends going through that process, which is difficult, than having to deal with the legal process and the attorneys they hired. I chose to do some research and found that Michael was not only extremely qualified, but had an impeccable reputation. I am glad that I took the time to do my research, because the results have been amazing. I feel like I have had his support from day one. He has taken the weight off my back and I feel like I have no concerns because he and his staff communicate with me at every level. He is current with our technology, I can call, email or text, and always have access to someone in his office including him. He has been honest with me in terms of my expectations and has always stood steadfast for my family’s best interests. I cannot say enough about him and his team, other than if you are looking for quality professional representation, he is that individual. He is knowledgeable, experienced and will never tell you what you want to hear, but the reality of your case, based on the law and your circumstances. I wish my friends had found a lawyer like him, but I am extremely glad I did.

Family lawyer
Michael handles my divorce case. All went well and to my best expectations. He and his office are very professional. They were supportive and guided me through the process very well. As the minor child was involved as well I was very nervous, but luckily with Michael's help we can to an agreement. Michael was always available on the phone and through e-mail and the billing process was very transparent. Definitely recommend him as a family lawyer.

Mike and his team were so helpful throughout my entire divorce. Mike took the time to call me multiple times and meet with me to explain everything and answer all of the (many) questions I had. They were very responsive, compassionate, and understanding. I can't recommend them enough!

Mr. Efron did a great job getting my divorce handled. He took time to explain when I had any questions, and always made sure my interests were looked after and protected. Just be sure that you are aware going in that you will need to hire another attorney to draft QDRO’s to divide any retirement / pension funds. This was not explained in advance and came as an unexpected expense that I was not prepared for. I am sure it was something he assumed I would know, but I was clueless. I would highly recommend Mr. Efron.

Highly recommend!
I had a different lawyer before I met Mr. Efron. Many times I would leave the court room feeling frustrated and defeated. One day my lawyer couldn't make a court date and sent Mr. Efron in as a sub. Immediately following that court date I hired Mr. Efron as my representation. I don't think that my previous lawyer was bad, he just wasn't able to handle my type of case, but Mike could! Since then, he has been a blessing for my family and me.

Recommend in a heartbeat!
Mr. Efron was extremely helpful, informative, and personable. He talked with me over the phone whenever I had questions or needed to follow up. He and his assistant Sandra worked expediently on my case which I was very grateful for!

Friend, Efficient and Effective
My experience with Michael was top notch from the initial phone call through to final documentation. He completely understood the breadth of our situation and made great recommendations. I initiated the court proceeding independently, and I quickly learned that I needed to hire a professional to represent me at my child custody hearing. His strategy and approach yielded results in adjusting child support to a reasonable amount, which more than covered his modest fees. The end result is exactly what we expected. I will continue to work with Mike, and will have him by my side for all future family court related matters. I highly recommend giving Mr. Efron a call.

Excellent Attny for difficult child support case
Me Effron was hard working and effective in a very difficult child support case. He knew exactly what motions to file and always communicated with me and kept me up to date on all aspects. If you have any family court issues , especially with child support, I highly recommend Mr Effron. Any other lawyer would have thrown in the towel with my case but we actually came out with a great settlement. Very professional and his staff was also very effective and they know what they are doing. Calls/emails always returned in a timely manner and I know this is rare.

Michael Efron Review from a satisfied client
Michael is a great attorney that is particularly good at understanding people. His assistance was vital in working out some issues that I had with my ex-wife regarding custody and our daughter. Michael was communicative and intuitive as well as really helped keep the ball rolling toward a resolution. I would highly recommend Michael to any seeking an attorney.

A professional review of attorney Michael B Efron.
Mike Efron is a personable and professional attorney. He demonstrates a keen knowledge of family law backed with many years of experience in the field of law. His affable personality combined with a forceful demeanor when needed, provides a well-balanced approach to difficult legal issues, keeping his clients at ease and preventing unwarranted hostility. I've been in and out of family court for thirteen years and I have dealt with many attorneys. Mike is positively one of the best.

Positive experience with legal name change.
I worked with Michael Efron to complete a legal name change. The process was pretty straightforward, but I wanted assistance with the paperwork and wanted to ensure that I avoided any mistakes that could draw out the process. Michael was professional and informative during our initial consultation. From that point on, he followed up via email in a timely and thorough manner. I would happily recommend his services.

Name change was a breeze.

Thank Heavens for Michael He really cares
I live in Utah, I had never met Michael I got his name through my work law program that I had joined. I was married for 31 years and my ex husband was taking me back to court to try to stop my alimony. My court date was on a Monday and I arrived in California on Friday morning Michael made arrangements to meet with me that afternoon, and he spent hours with me when I got there by the time we were done talking he calmed my nerves down. When he listened to me and I realized that he had read everything he could find about our case and everything I wrote him via email (which was a lot because I wanted him to understand what had gone on in the last 15 years since our divorce. ) I had told him on one of my emails how nervous I was and he wrote me back and told me he understood nervous and it was ok. When I would email him I would get an answer before the days end most of the time or it would be in my email by the next morning sometime looking at the time he sent it it was the middle of the night. He was right there for me on Monday morning, he worked hard with my ex husbands lawyer to bring us together and settle our negotiations between the two of us. He helped me through a rough time and because of him I can now heal from a long hard ordeal with my ex husband. Thank you Michael for all you did for me and for being right there when I needed you. I feel like I not only have a great lawyer if I ever need him who really cares .. but I have found a very good friend as well .. too..

Excellent attorney
Michael handled our child support litigation. He was excellent, very well prepared and extremely well spoken in hearings. He helped us a great deal with a very trying issue. Highly recommended.

Very Satisfied, would recommend to friends
Very pleased with Michael Efron, he was referred by a friend and found that not only was he was very knowledgeable about how family law works, he seemed to genuinely care about what we were going through. He understood the situation we found ourselves in and he gave us good advice what we should do. He was very clear about what we were to expect, and very realistic about what the outcome might be. He was very responsive to questions we had and answered much quicker than expected. Michael's fees were reasonable and we felt he went out of his way not to run up charges. He gained our trust and we would definitely refer him to our friends and family.

This attorney does not accept emailed documents
Went over my case and then got the point of saying hey do you mind if I email you my documents (ya know it's COVID and some of us are high risk) and he said he only will do an in-person overview of the case. I would not recommend him- he also got all rude when I asked why I can't simply send him an email with things. Super aggressive dude and terrible bedside manner for a prospective client. More than glad to take a hike.
