Best Lawyer and Staff
I was involved in a legal case out of state. John worked tirelessly and always stayed on top of all the issues before they got out of hand. He won us a settlement that far exceeded our expectations and Sue always made sure everything was in order and top notch. I will not hesitate to contact him for any future assistance.

The best Probate Lawyer, ever. Highly recommended.
I needed an Attorney that specializes in probate matters and upon my sister advised me to look for reputable lawyer through Better Business Bureau. Since the need was so urgent the first few law offices that I called cannot take me right away because of scheduling. The last law firm I called was the Office of Atty. Frederick Lewman. I spoke to her Legal Asst. Sue Randi and was kind enough to book me that same morning for consultation. I live 15 minutes away from their office so I was able to rush right away since Mr. Lewman has an hour to spare before he takes his first appointment. I explained the situation and showed him the demand letter from the opposing counsel. Knowing that it was time sensitive he agreed to represent me after explaining the process and the fees. This is the first time I have to deal with a lawyer so I was concern that I'd be charged exorbitant retainer fees. Atty. Lewman was different, his retainers fee is reasonable and his assistant Sue was always updating me of the status of my case. Fast forward, Atty. Lewman was able to resolve my probate issues in a fast and efficient way. I feel I was a valued client and handled my case with due diligence and professionalism. I highly recommend him to everyone who are in need of a lawyer specializing in Probate, Litigation and Estate planning. He is simply the best. His Assistant Sue Randi is likewise very professional. I am so glad I've found them. They're the dream team!!

The team you need when it comes to dealing with the courts
My wife and I hired John and Sue to help us deal with a probate/trust issue that wasn't going to solve itself. John's professional representation in Superior Court clinched the decision in our favor. Very highly recommended.

Excellent Probate Attorney
When my loved one didn't have a will, and being out of state I was anxious about finding the right attorney. John Lewman and Sue Randi were extremely helpful in guiding me through the process of California probate. They were friendly, compassionate, and very responsive to my needs. I would highly recommend working with them.

family estate planning/ insurance settlement
We have been working with John this last year on an insurance settlement for our son who was involved in a pedestrian/vehicular accident and our family estate plan. He and his assistant, Sue, are specific in their explanations and follow up immediately when presented with questions. With so many details involved with each case, they have been patient while awaiting documents and understanding with our son's long distance (college) handling of the issues. John anticipates all angles of the legal aspects and looks at the individual needs of his clients. His offices are centrally located in Livermore making access to him that much simpler.
