Testimonials

“My time at Lerners was my first experience inside the legal profession for a personal matter. It was a very trying time for me, both physically and mentally, but I am pleased to say it was a positive experience throughout. Most of my dealings were one-on-one with Alysia and I found our time together very comfortable. Any questions or queries I had were addressed point by point in layman terms so I would understand exactly what was happening along the way. Several times I called her with a variety of concerns and she responded in a timely manner and calmly walked me through each item, being certain that I fully understood all the steps completely.

I have no doubt that if the need arose for me to seek legal counsel in the future, I would contact Alysia or whomever she recommended on the Lerners team and avail myself of their legal expertise. My thanks to Alysia and the whole Lerners team.”
