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
