Ray Oleson was recommended to me by two other local attorneys as being perhaps THE most knowledgeable Northern California professional they knew of in the area of title insurance law. Mr. Oleson far exceeded my lofty expectations. He guided me (and, tactfully, the opposing counsel) through a complex legal process, in the end netting for me a settlement approximately 5 times larger than what my insurer had originally insisted was the maximum they were obligated to pay out under the law. I found this lawyer to be resourceful, accessible, responsive and above all knowledgeable.

I recently engaged Ray Oleson to represent me as the plaintiff in a complex real estate partition case that involved the involuntary division of jointly held residential property. The case involved multiple complex legal issues not the least of which included the defendants attorney refusing to step aside as a result of a conflict of interest. Ray demonstrated he is a very articulate and persuasive attorney as he successfully prevailed in all the major legal issues disputed in the case including the court disqualifying the defendant attorney. As a result of Ray's analytic skills and his commitment to detail we prevailed in the case and I was able to successfully reclaim the disputed property. It was a pleasure working with Ray as he is both personable and has excellent client communication skills. I highly recommend Ray Oleson and will certainly retain him again should the need arise.

Ray Oleson is an excellent attorney and I would recommend him without reservation. He is professional, gracious, articulate, and a fantastic trial attorney. He made a painful and traumatic process bearable and was a pleasure to work with. (He also won the case!).

I endorse this lawyer enthusiastically. He is highly intelligent, diligent, a sophisticated expert in the area of insurance law and bad faith claims (and excellent in other areas as well), both creative and practical in approach, honest, and a genuinely "good guy" who puts his clients first. An outstanding choice.
