I recommend Michael Efron.
Michael handled my Domestic Violence matter.
Very pleased with Michael Efron, he was referred by a friend and found that not only was he was very knowledgeable about how family law works, he seemed to genuinely care about what we were going through. He understood the situation we found ourselves in and he gave us good advice what we should do. He was very clear about what we were to expect, and very realistic about what the outcome might be. He was very responsive to questions we had and answered much quicker than expected. Michael's fees were reasonable and we felt he went out of his way not to run up charges. He gained our trust and we would definitely refer him to our friends and family.

DCSS Child Support Services 12/2010
As it relates to family law and if you are interested and looking for a responsive and knowledgeable attorney or firm - this is to highly recommend the professional services of Michael "Mike" Efron.

For four years, I was trapped in the inefficiencies and extremely bureaucratic child & spousal support system. I had been involved in a work related injury in 2005 which led to permanent disability - there is no state administrative assistance or considerations for non-custodial parents regarding this.

I am speaking from real and personal "experience" - as i made all the mistakes possible... starting with the dumbest... which was representing myself. Yes, i had no income and/or benefits coming from disability for over three years. Then, i hired an online paperwork legal filing service - again, that's all i could afford. And i also tried the Family Law Facilitator services, which were over five hundred miles away. Finally and thanks to a favorable Social Security benefits & decision, i thought i could hire the "best" - i.e. flashy website & offices - representation... wrong!

Finally and thanks to my investigative and scientific research experience - i decided to create the ideal profile for a family law attorney; and i left my computer search through thousands of webpages, names and cases - that's how Mike surfaced to the top and without anyone coming close. There is absolutely none in Orange County that knows how to deal with DCSS and the courts better than Mike - period!

Knowing that I had already been unfairly labeled, treated and persecuted as a deadbeat father for four years - Mike was able to challenge the whole case. He first had to fix my own mistakes due to "self representation" and then that of "others"; and within three months - on my first ever day in court with a real attorney on this case, the judge listened to my side of the story. The result was that the whole support obligation stopped - permanently.

The next challenge was "to erase" the tens of thousands in accumulated "ärrearages" back support - i.e. 100% of it after the injury. I knew that "i would win" if I ever decided to litigate... but it could take another year(s) and certainly, thousands of additional dollars in the fight; and that's not very intelligent.

The best for both parties and/or everyone in the case was, to come to terms with a final payoff settlement agreement - one that had nothing to do with case accounting or lack off, but only with common sense. Or more important - with permanent peace and tranquility for the parties. It had to be a sensible agreement and one that both parties would walk out and live happy with. Even one that the judge would agree and say: "this is an intelligent agreement" - as it happened.

I can sit now and reflect on what i've accomplished this last twelve months - Absolute Peace. And this is 100% due to Mike's focused and persistent effort - in listening (or reading!), dedicating and getting me exactly where I had asked him I looked forward to be today. Thank You Mike!

Mr. Efron was essentially excellent. He was always there for me. He was an astounding lawyer, as well as a great genuine friend during my entire process. Not only was he there for me as a friend, but he was very responsible and always in control with my divorce. I owe him a lot of respect and gratitude for his services. I would in a second recommend Mr. Efron to anyone.

Michael: I want to thank you for your excellent, professional and efficient handling of my divorce case. There was a fast, effortless, (On my part), final disposition of a case that was going nowhere until you were put in charge. When completed, both parties were satisfied and a friendship following the final entry of judgment with my ex is still flourishing.

I highly recommend your good offices to all. I am making this observation as a practicing attorney here in California and recognize professional conduct as it should be. Sincerely,

Going through a divorce can be unpleasant, scary, and full of financial and emotional uncertainties. A good attorney spends enough personal time understanding all the details of their case so they can argue the details should the case go to court; they need to be very familiar with the law and offer good counsel on the law and on case strategy; they need to act as part therapist and inspiring leader; and, they need to be persuasive in court but also practical/realistic in our discussions. Mike Efron artfully managed this whole process to my complete satisfaction.

These divorce cases can and often do drag on for months, but I am happy to say that Mike Efron helped navigate this process to an amicable and advantageous settlement in just a few months. He was sensitive to the emotional components, remained both constructive and positive as well as firm in his engagement with the opposing attorney, and kept me informed all along the way. He always operated with a sense of urgency to bring closure to these issues as if they were his own. I always felt like my business was important to both Mike and the entire firm. I remain grateful and indebted to both Mike Efron his dedicated work on my behalf.

My child is with me and is safe. Michael advocated my case to the court and got emergency orders to protect my daughter from gang violence that had been going on at my x-husbands home. Your determination on my families' behalf will always be remembered and shared when asked. I would recommend you to anyone trying to safeguard their children from danger.

Thanks for taking control of my case and allowing me to get back to my work and life without the day-to-day worries of "what next". You were professional and fair.
