4.5 stars 8 totalReview Mitchell Ehrlich
Posted by Steve
I hired Mitchell to help resolve a number of fairly complex issues that came up regarding my initial marriage settlement that was done with another attorney. The prior attorney was a nice guy but ultimately was sloppy in his work which resulted in a number of ambiguities in the original agreement which surfaced after the agreement was signed.
Mitchell very quickly and efficiently reviewed the initial case and settlement, and in a very professional manner recognized numerous deficiencies in the prior agreement and worked in a very collaborative fashion with me to suggest modifications and potential methods of negotiation which we could employ in driving the development of a comprehensive follow on stipulation that would put all of the open issues to bed once and for all. While Mitchell clearly represented my interests in these discussions, he did so in a manner that was both professional and fair, recognizing that any negotiation will ultimately require give and take on both sides.
Over the course of approximately eighteen months, Mitchell consistently represented my interests in a very professional manner, with a resulting stipulation recently signed which was balanced and reasonable, and was done in an extremely cost efficient manner.
I would absolutely recommend Mitchell for anyone who is looking for a family law professional who is honest and extremely capable.

If you are looking for an elite, top of the class family lawyer, try Mitchell Ehrlich in Lonich & Patton San Jose. My husband hired one of the most aggressive law firms and kidnapped our daughter to start a divorce. Most lawyers didn’t want to deal w/ that notoriously aggressive law firm. Mitch was not intimidated by them at all. He immediately saw through the lies in husband’s claims and promptly started an emergency screening process, then got my daughter back to me! I’m forever grateful for Mitch getting the justice done. Mitch seems to also have a strong network in the legal community in Santa Clara county and is familiar w/ other lawyers and judges. He is well known for his knowledge in family law and even his opponent called him an “excellent family lawyer.” Perhaps some day he may become a judge or politician himself. He is however super busy as all well-known lawyers are, so you may need to try your luck whether he has time accepting your case.

Mr. Ehrlich has helped me on a difficult divorce case. I received excellent advice and representation from him, both on the financial issues and on the custodial issues. From day one, he had great insight on the critical matters in the case. He understood my goals, helped me set the right expectations, successfully diffused DV-related attacks, and obtained the custody that I was seeking.
Mitchell Ehrlich was able to sort through many attacks from our opponents, especially at the onset of the case. Thanks to his advice, I can see that all the right decisions were made and at the right time. Although the case was lengthy, it was not by his fault but rather because of our often unreasonable opponent.
Specifically on my case, Mitchell Ehrlich:
- prevented the move-away of the mother with our young child
- obtained dismissal of TRO and withdrawal of DV trial from our opponent
- obtained immediate 47/53 custody
- prevailed at custody trial, obtaining 50/50 custody
- avoided trial on highly contested separation of property
- prevailed at custody trial, obtaining my school choice for child
Finally, Mitchell Ehrlich works fast; his productivity is enormous.

I retained Mitchell about 6 years ago in a child custody case and continue to consult him with custody modifications. He is exceptionally realistic and objective. A combination of his responsiveness, background and vast knowledge of family law and court system, has provided me with comfort during stressful custody settlements. The office is centrally located and the staff has always been professional and helpful. I highly recommend Mitchell.

His associate Julia and his office staff were very professional and responsive as well.

I retained Mitchell for handling my divorce case. It was a fairly simple case, I was barely married for three months, and there were no kids involved, no jointly held property or any other kind of assets. There were two court hearing and the entire process took nearly 2 months.
He is definitely knowledge and outspoken. For example, in the second hearing, he checked some information on his iPhone and updated me.
1. Always delayed in responding to my emails. I was surprised to notice that even after paying a high retainer, there were times when he simply didnâ€™t reply to some of my emails.
2. He was never on time for the hearings.
And, the worst
Too expensive, simple case like mine costed over 10 K
