Client Testimonies

  • Jacob Aitcheson is a man of his word! From the moment I met Jacob, he was friendly, confident, direct and professional. But most of all, he was honest and trustworthy! He laid everything out for me to see like a road map.Throughout the process, Jacob and his team at Lerners were fair, organized and made me feel comfortable! They were excellent to work with and in constant communication. I was updated as soon as they had any new information. No curve balls were thrown at me and I was informed immediately of any hiccups along the way. Everything was done in a professional manner so I could put my mind at ease and carry on with my life.

    My experiences with Jacob and his team were very reassuring during an extremely stressful, difficult time in my life. I would highly recommend his services to family, friends and total strangers. Jacob prepared me for what to expect and I was very pleased with the outcome. Jacob and his team treated me with dignity and respect. Jacob Aitcheson is a man of his word! Patrick M., 2022
