    As part owner of a poker casino here in Los Angeles, I needed an attorney that handled my living trust and will. Mr. O'brien was found on google, in Brea, he was perfect. Not only has he helped update my Revocable Trust, he has extended his services by helping me with my trust application and renewal of my license with the Dept. of Justice and Bureau of Gambling Control. He also represented me in court for a speeding ticket.
    I highly recommend Gerard W. O'brien for Legal Services...

    Mr. O'Brien has helped us establish family trusts. I have found him very knowledgeable. He provides an excellent explanation on complicated matters. Mr. O'Brien and his staff are quick in answering questions and concerns. He
    shares empathy and provides professional advice. I feel comfortable to recommend him to my friends and family.

    I hired Gerard W. O’Brien in 2011 for a Chapter Eleven bankruptcy proceeding. He guided us through the process, was easy to work with and was able to get a plan confirmed. We are well on our way back to financial stability and success. I feel he was a great value and I would hire him again.

  • help with my parents' care

    My parents hired Gerard W. O’Brien in 2001 for a revocable living trust-based estate plan. Last year my parents began to need a great deal of care and I and my two siblings went to see Mr. O’Brien about using the estate plan to provide for and protect our parents. He guided us through the process, was clear and easy to work with, and we have been able to take care of Mom and Dad and sell their home so we have resources for their care. We are still working on our parent’s estate and Mr. O’Brien makes himself available quickly when I need advice on the proceedings. I feel his work was and is of great value and I would hire him again.

    I hired Mr. O'Brien to assist in getting the trustees of a trust to distribute trust proceeds as set out in the trust. After 6 months, $3K in fees, 2 lawyer letters and attorney conference, Mr. O'Brien was only able to secure a partial distribution of 25% of what was owed. It's too high a cost for the limited outcome.

    Gerard William O'Brien’s response: “This review is only about 25% factually correct. The writer omits the following services that were provided as part of the sum writer paid. 1. Office meetings; 2. There were lengthy emails requiring written responses to address multiple issues raised; many of the issues raised were irrelevant or tangential to the case. The writer and attorney engaged in 13 chains of email correspondence, they were conducted on 6/28/2013, 7/12, 7/16, 7/18, 7/23, 7/24, 7/29, 8/3, 8/21, 8/30, 9/11, 9/12, 9/18. The average length was 4 emails or two rounds of correspondence. 3. Physical visits to the property by co-counsel, 4. Advice regarding allegations of waste to the property, 5. Creating of photographic evidence of the property to support the case against waste, 6. Collecting documents to refute the claim writer was wasting the property, 7. Two or more telephone conversations with opposing counsel, 8. Over 15 conferences with Co-counsel regarding the case, and 9. The Two letters written to opposing counsel, which were disclosed in the review. These services were provide over the course of 5 months. Writer is entitled to its opinion of the value of the services, however, all services provided should be included.”

    Asked Gerard to reveiw our family trust. Met him as part of a networking group. Gerard met with my father and mother to handle a case with properties, grandkids, special needs dependent and other concerns. Gerarad handled our case professionally. My parents felt they delt with a lawyer they could trust, and a lawyer who would be availalble to help after they are gone. Gave them a sense of relief for their handicapped daugher. In addition, they were very satisfied with the fee's. Expected to pay much more. (Didnt tell Gerard)

    I found Mr. O'Brien very comfortable to talk to. He was professional yet personal and even went the extra mile to help me during an emotional time. He was recommended to me by a trustworthy business friend and I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance.

    I would highly recommend Mr O'Brien to be your Lawyer. He effectively handled my case and gave it the attention that it needed. I have used him twice: once for a business partnership that dissolved and again when I was wrongfully sued over an airplane that I did not own. In both instances the matters were resolved very professionally. Mr. O'Brien is is a good, ethical Attorney with high standards and integrity. If you are even considering seeking legal advice or help, please call Mr. O'Brien.

  • Great review for in-house counsel attorney

    Anonymous review posted on

    While in-house counsel for my company, Jerry took care of many issues : client contracts, landlord-tenant, tax, employment/labor, immigration, and insurance. All the work Jerry did for my company was done very efficiently and in a timely manner. He explained everything to me in terms I could understand. I would highly recommend him for any legal work needed for a small company.
