Jeff and his assistant Denise provided me with outstanding assistance and support for a family law matter that required sensitivity and expediency. They handled my case with an unsurpassed level of integrity, professionalism, timing and efficiency. I am very proud and grateful to acknowledge Ochrach Law Group. They have and continue to set a standard when it comes to serving our community. Highly recommended. Thank you Denise and Jeff.
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!
Jeff is incredibly smart, disciplined, and an artisan in his craft.
Avvo’s slogan The right attorney makes the difference defines my recent legal experiences. I was the Plaintiff in a lawsuit against prior partners for two years ending last week (Mar 2013). I engaged with two other attorneys before I found Jeff Ochrach of Ochrach Law Group and filed suit in 2011.
My case was ineffective until Jeff. Jeff single-handedly changed my outcome. The contrast between these two prior attorneys and Jeff is stunning.
He is highly accurate, yet honest and forthcoming when he’s not sure. High accuracy when committing resources is a huge win.
We won all 7 pre-trial motions. I settled my case before trial in Mar 2013. I am certain Jeff’s involvement was a significant factor. The right attorney matters a lot.
Jeff’s writing is amazing. He is able to conceptualize and simplify complex arguments, laying them out in accessible breadcrumbs.
Jeff was accessible, engaged, and mentally invested in the outcome of my case. I recommend Jeffrey Ochrach & Ochrach Law Group without hesitation
With our reputations and finances on the line, we knew we were in the right hands.
Jeff was recommended to me by a neighbor who had previous great experience with him. We had a difficult case, with little proof and lots of opposition perjury, and a highly-charged environment including a bitterly-fought restraining order against law enforcement. Jeff was a great listener, incorporating ideas we had when they made sense, and coming up to speed quickly on technical detail that was critical to our case. He was able to cross-examine the opposition to find the needles in the haystack to prove the lies arrayed against us, building our credibility and impeaching theirs. With our reputations and finances on the line, we knew we were in the right hands.
We could tell that he was fighting our case as if it was his own, not just punching the clock.
His demeanor in court was fabulous, with him being confident and aggressive enough to make the critical points, without being arrogant or overbearing or alienating the judge. We could tell that he was fighting our case as if it was his own, not just punching the clock.
We were fought bitterly all the way to the California Court of Appeals, where we again prevailed in all of the substance of the case.
we were always in the loop as our case progressed.
Our case was not simple. It involved the financial abuse of the elderly over a long period of time. Our first attorney mostly wrote letters back and forth but we were going nowhere fast. Then by luck we were referred the Mr Ochrach. Suddenly we were no longer dead in the water and our offense was amazing. At times our case crossed over into several different areas of law outside of Jeff’s expertise but he knew exactly where to go for advice on those issues.
Law is as much of an art as a science. He had to dig for evidence that spanned many years and then put it all together into a comprehensive case that was air tight. At the same time he was tracking down where all of the money had gone so he could recover it! It was amazing to watch. He communicated with us often and constantly explained his strategy so we were always in the loop as our case progressed. This was very comforting since we always knew exactly where we were. He turned what started out to be very stressful into a case that was almost amusing. In the end our case was so strong he had the other side making offers to avoid trial and wanting to settle. Even though we really wanted to see Jeff perform the trial, he is also very conservative and recommended that we settle. He had discovered that there was a possibility that our opponent was beginning to move (hide) funds and we could end up with the problem of getting our restitution. Not to mention our costs would still be increasing for the case. His logic and common sense convinced us he was right. (A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush).
I just cannot say enough about my confidence in Jeff and his very capable assistant Denise. The quality of their work is truly outstanding …
I would like to add that the person who referred us to Mr. Ochrach told us how their case went on for years but once they hired Jeff, he made short work out of it and their case was settled very quickly. I just cannot say enough about my confidence in Jeff and his very capable assistant Denise. The quality of their work is truly outstanding and his attention to detail is second to none. He is an amazing guy.
