If I were on the opposing side I would shake in my shoes and cry. And..., that is exactly what happen when our Builder tried to bully us. All We could say at that time was: "Oh My Gosh!!!" Even if we lost, we were excited to have paid for that front row seat to justice. Well... We did not loose, in fact... It was a landslide win!!! Jeffrey Ochrach, brought "The proof is in the pudding", front and center.
That builder was not able to ever do what he put our family through ever again to anyone else and for us... We are forever grateful to Jeffrey for his talent and intellectual intelligence to prevail for us all...
Facts are facts and he outshined every single attorney that came at us with cold hard proof and facts that could not be twisted by anyone.
Jeffrey, is the first and only attorney we'd recommend and he has prevailed for many others we have sent his way.
I know him personally and can tell you with proof. He is a man of high integrity who defends the truth, he is also just about the best dad around.
Don't waste your mind or money with anyone else, if truth and integrity is important to your case?
Call Jeffrey Ochrach and make it a Win!

Mr. Ochcrach was an amazing help to me during a difficult time in my life. From our first discussion it was clear to me that my case would be handled well. Mr. Ochrach was able to bring complex and at times emotionally charged dynamics into realistic and understandable terms. All of the next steps were explained and well prepared throughout the process. I always had the sense that my best interests were Mr. Ochrach's priority. The level of communication as well as the kindness and professionalism of the office staff was beyond good. Honesty, integrity, compassion and skill are descriptors that accurately describe my experience of Mr. Ochrach.
I do not have a lot of experience with the legal system and never imagined I would ever need this type of help. I do know that I am thankful that Mr. Ochrach was there when I was in need.

My sad story began about thirteen years ago. I was involved in a car accident that, on the surface seemed a simple matter of getting a lawyer and proceeding from there. My lawyer, who had been representing our business for years, mishandled the suit and let my case go pass the time I had to settle the matter. He said he simply forgot. My car was in the shop for 1 1/2 years, ended up being totaled and I was left hanging.
It was difficult to find a lawyer that would handle my case of suing another lawyer and his insurance company. I don't remember exactly when I ended up seeing Jeff Ochrach, I do remember making many phone calls and when he said he would be happy to see me, my husband and I made the appointment. And that is how it started. It ended up being a trial by jury. We were in court a week. I had never been in court before and it was overwhelming to me and very stressful. Jeff was wonderful in helping me through that difficult time. Very patient, explained my endless questions, and his confidence in handling the case eased almost all of my anxiety. It seemed he always had time for me and I never felt rushed and I always knew what was going on. Not only did he get the settlement we were asking for (actually more), he also had them cover all my attorney and court costs! He is amazing in the courtroom. I learned things from him that I still use today in handling myself in difficult situations.
We are still good friends, our families get together for dinners at least once a month and on occasion we can get a golf game in. I highly recommend my friend to anyone who needs a friend when it come to the law. Thank you.

I have known Jeff since we were both associates at a firm in San Francisco. We have stayed in close touch and I have enjoyed watching him develop into perhaps the finest trial lawyer I know. He has a remarkable ability to dive into a complicated case, hone in on the issues that matter, and get results. I heartily endorse Jeff.
