Excellent Attorney
I highly recommend Jeffrey Ochrach to anyone who is in need of legal service. A family member fabricated lies , accused and sued me for something that never took place. That’s why I contacted Jeffrey Ochrach’s law office to help me with my legal issue. A short interview and counsel with Jeffrey earned my trust in his expertise and he became my case warrior to combat all the accusations & fabrications. Jeffrey was very helpful & professional throughout the case. He explained ,assisted and answered all my questions and concerns in a timely manner. I felt very informed about my case and confident in Jeffrey’s ability to pursue my legal matters with deligence. It was a lengthy process,but in the end his superior legal abilities and his expertise crushed the allegations & lies of the other side and we won our case. I truly am appreciative of Jeffrey’s sincere and hard work on my case as my attorney, Thank you Mr. Jeffrey Ochrach.

This attorney is the best you could hire! He’s brilliant, and didn't waste time or my money!
Jeff is truly the best attorney and person I know. I was represented by four other law firms before I found Jeff. The other lawyers accomplished nothing, and I was always losing the litigation battles. Everything changed as soon as Jeff stepped in. Jeff aggressively pursued discovering all the business records we needed to prove our case. He retained an amazing CPA to serve as our expert witness. Jeff was forced to file several motions to compel the defendant to produce documents we requested, and Jeff won $70,000 in monetary sanctions against the defendant for failing to comply with discovery rules. At trial, Jeff’s skills shined. During cross-examination of defendant and his witnesses, Jeff impeached their testimony seemingly every five minutes. In fact, when the trial was concluded, the judge said that he did not believe anything the defendant said. In the end, we won $2.4 million. To put into perspective how huge that victory is, before Jeff took over the case, I was willing to accept $140,000 to settle the entire case. In addition to this amazing victory, I am now happy to say that Jeff and his wife have become my very close friends. Gina

A game changer!
After weeks of tireless searching, and years of negative experiences with hired attorneys, Jeff was a much needed breath of fresh air. Right off the bat, Jeff seemed to catch on to the intricacies of the case very quickly. He gave his honest opinion about the odds of my case, and offered a few ideas about how to handle it. His mental acuity and nimbleness, on top of his rapidity in understanding my case and all the facts, convinced me that retaining him was the best option. From the get go, Jeff was focused, organized, and was on top of all issues pertaining to the case. His explanations of legal processes were clear and precise. Most importantly, he has been a true advocate, very much like a best friend who had my back. He was very cognizant of the costs, and made sure to maximize the effectiveness of all his calls, emails, and motions/briefs. He was consistently cordial with me and championed my interests. In the courtroom, his experience, tenacity, and deep understanding of the court shone through each word and action. Jeff brought a much needed light to an otherwise seemingly dark and chaotic legal system. In the end, Jeff managed to pull off more than I had ever hoped for in my wildest dreams. The win he secured for me was well worth any cost. It’s no wonder Jeff has such a high win percentage and a positive reputation. Thank you, Jeff. You are a godsend!

Jeff Ochrach has represented me personally, my company and several of the real estate entities that I own and manage. Jeff has the ability to understand complicated matters and explain them in a manner that is easy to understand yet effective. From working with troublesome tenants to personal litigation Jeff provided guidance and obtained positive results. The cases that we addressed included threatened litigation from tenants, mold related defense, tenant evictions and personal counsel and defense. I trust and respect Jeff and will continue to use him in the future.

1. We hired Mr. Ochrach because a major California based HMO denied claims for a family member. He researched the medical requirements of the proposed treatment and attempted negotiate with the HMO for treatment. When that failed he filed suit, which we won. However the HMO chose to endlessly appeal and Mr. Ochrach continued to represent us and finally the judgment was confirmed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Had we not hired Mr. Ochrach, we would have been left with huge medical bills, I highly recommend him for his tenacity and legal skills.

The Best Lawyer You Can Ask For!
I had a very long difficult case which took many years to fight and defend myself. Jeff was amazing from start to finish. The discovery, depositions, the trial and everything in between he was prepared. To say he was prepared is an understatement. I witnessed first hand the amount of work and preparation he puts into a case. If you have a case that needs to go to trial to win he is the Man to make it happen! He is so very kind and professional to work with, He is even kind and professional when he is ripping the other guy to shreds in a deposition or the court room. I 100% Love and recommend my Lawyer.

He is Amazing!!!
This man was our 4th attorney! He listened to us and looked at all of our documents Unlike prior attorneys we sadly chose. He is personable, he knows his way around the courtroom and his knowledge of the law is second to none. He's measured and resolute when it comes to defending his client and he attacks your case with the finesse of an artist. We can't express enough, don't try others because you will be wasting your time and money. Jeff Ochrach is the Attorney/Lawyer for you.

When only the best will do...
We found Jeff Ochrach on this website, after laboring through several months with another attorney and dispiriting results. We decided to call Jeff after reading his uniformly glowing reviews. As it happens, those reviews were spot on, and he is every bit as good as his reviews led us to expect. Jeff was simply superb from start to finish. He represented us in a complex and emotionally draining elder financial abuse suit, ultimately an outgrowth of severe family dysfunction. Jeff was always direct, but at the same time compassionate and reassuring, with a gentle humor that put us at ease instantly. Our entire case was conducted via phone calls and emails from our home on the east coast, and his flawless preparation and execution saved us from multiple (and expensive) cross-country court appearances. As our case wound its way through the legal system, Jeff was on top of every development, knew exactly the right questions to ask, and kept us fully apprised of progress. At the same time he provided opposing counsel just enough information to assure him he was in for a bruising legal battle, without tipping our hand. At each juncture of the case, opposing counsel offered to settle, and the settlement amounts lowered progressively until they finally dropped the case entirely. That saved us the time and costs of travel as well as the entire expense of litigating in court. But equally important, it saved us the stress and emotional drain of a bitter court battle. A case that could potentially have cost us close to a million dollars was finally settled for no damages. And finally, no amount of praise for the Ochrach Law Group would be complete without mentioning his office manager Denise. She was unfailingly efficient, responsive and professional. But at the same time, she was kind and understanding with clients who were emotionally stressed and very unsure of our legal footing. She fielded numerous questions during times Jeff was in court or otherwise unavailable, and knew precisely which questions needed to be passed on. The rest she would answer for us on the spot, further saving us time and money. She was the icing on the cake of a very satisfying outcome. We hope to never again need this kind of legal expertise, but there is absolutely no doubt who we would call – the Ochrach Law Group!

We are extremely grateful to have found and hired Mr. Ochrach to represent us. He's intelligent, caring and honest. The lawsuit filed against us was designed to ruin us and lasted for 2 1/2 years. Throughout the entire process he encouraged us to be the white hat and not fall prey to what the other party was trying to do. We followed his very wise advice and we can finally close this chapter and move on. We can't recommend him enough, he is just that good!

More Than Cut Above The Rest . . .
. . . this attorney is among the best. I recommended Mr. Ochrach based upon his reputation as a civil litigation attorney. I had no prior first hand knowledge of his legal skills or knowledge. However, unlike most Amazon reviews, Mr. Ochrach not only lived up to his reviews, he exceeded their praises in every way. His work was professional, accurate and carried the day. In fact, he achieved a positive result in a manner which is normally unheard of in the civil law arena. His laser-like legal skills cut through a specious lawsuit in amazingly quick fashion. If you are in search of a true professional, look no further than Jeffrey Ochrach.

Extremely Grateful to the Ochrach Team
Jeffrey Ochrach came highly recommended to me and my family and we are so thankful to have worked with him. He assisted us in a Civil Case and also in Family Law matters. His firm is very quick to respond, organized and efficient. After meeting him we were immediately relieved because of how he explained the process and broke down his plan of action. We were out of State clients and Jeffrey was able to handle the case without us needing to repeatedly be present. This saved us time, money and stress! We had a great outcome and will continue to work with him if needed in the future.

Excellent attorney with excellent litigation skills
Mr. Ochrach is extremely knowledgeable with a number of civil litigation matters I found myself dragged into. He was able to file terminating pretrial motions that resulted in a dismissal of these cases against me. You will NOT regret his expert legal representation.

VICTORY! (Child support, Spousal Support)
I hired Mr. Ochrach a month ago after hiring 3 other family law attorneys and had lost absolute hope. I NEVER Thought I’d have justice and VICTORY. He is the ABSOLUTE BEST. His words and writing is Art. The judge had the upmost respect for him and the court room absorbed every word he said. He was extremely professional yet aggressive. Each time the opposing counsel was untruthful and my Ex husband was untruthful, He spoke up immediately with THE TRUTH. He fought hard for me and my boys. I had hired another “TOP” family attorney over a year ago, and EVERYTHING that my former attorney should have done in that year, Mr. Ochrach did in ONE MONTH. (No exaggeration) My children will FINALLY Get what they are entitled to financially and he SAVED My Spousal support! He is the BEST Trial and Family law ATTORNEY, No doubt. The judge absolutely was impressed. I am SO BEYOND GRATEFUL. I cannot say enough! He took me under his wing. Most of all he was very honest, truthful and caring. He was very human. Not the typical attorney that only wants money. Mr. Ochrach, I’m Forever grateful for what you made happen for me and my children. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!!! Veronica

So Impressed
My husband was being sued for breach of contract. He supposedly electronically signed a personal guarantee for a company he was no longer affiliated with. After two years of dealing with phone calls, threatening letters and emails and being served summons twice at our home, we decided it necessary to seek legal advice. We only met with Jeff one time and I knew we had the right person working for us. He got to work immediately and one week later, we received a phone call from Jeff. His call was to inform us that the case was being dismissed and the electronic signature was, in fact, a forgery. Jeff impressed us so much. He made me feel comfortable. He's genuine, eloquent and compassionate. I cannot say enough great things about Jeff.

Comes through with his promise to work hard for you.
I am a small business owner and operator of a niche construction business in Rocklin. I needed an experience litigator and trial lawyer. With little time before my trial date, Jeff stepped in and quickly learned the facts, developed a positive and aggressive game plan, and always had me feeling confident that I was now with the right attorney. Jeff is an excellent communicator always making sure I was informed of the “next step”. His daily phone calls and emails to me showed progress and confidence. His communication with other attorneys always portrayed confidence and control. If you are a busy professional or business owner, you already have a full-time job to do. I would strongly recommend Jeff to be your representative and voice with the matter at hand.

Gets The Job Done - Believe it, Jeffrey Delivers Like No Other
I needed help on how to interpret and address subpoenas served on myself for personal/business financials, as well as my current and previous employers being served subpoenas for my business financials and lastly, a subpoena to depose me. Jeffrey Ochrach is a highly skilled legal expert, with a reputation for getting the job done. I was referred to Jeffrey by another prominent regional attorney, indicating the complexity of my case and limited time frame to act and prevail, I would be well served to seek the assistance of Jeffrey Ochrach. Jeffrey is the real deal. After reviewing his website, reading his reviews, reading his Core Values, I made the call. That call, was the only call I needed to make. In our face to face meeting, Jeffrey understood my needs. He was able to identify the action needed, inform me of what he would do and what I could expect. Jeffrey delivers. His proficiency, effectiveness, watching him in action in a courtroom setting, it was if it were scripted. Jeffrey is simply amazing. Could not have felt more protected and watching how his work commands respect and attention, is astonishing. We prevailed, and in the timeframe he had identified in our first meeting. Jeffrey has become not only my attorney, but my friend. If you have a need for a great attorney, Jeffrey Ochrach is the legal professional your will be happy you made the call.

Exceptional litigator
I am a CPA that has been hired as an expert witness by Mr. Ochrach's clients on multiple occasions over the last twelve years of our relationship. Many of these cases have gone to trial, so I have seen Jeffrey perform in court many times. I have found Jeffrey to be exceedingly well prepared, with absolute command over the law and relevant facts. This allows him to always present well and stay focused on the points he wants to communicate to the judge or jury.
