It doesn't get any better than Catherine Lerer.
Let me begin by saying that I knew nothing of this law firm prior to finding their website online yesterday and randomly calling for a free consultation. Therefore, this review is 100% genuine.
Having dealt with numerous attorneys in the past for various things, I can say that the phone conversation I had yesterday with firm partner Catherine Lerer was by far the best experience I have ever had with an attorney.
What a pleasant and refreshing experience, and hope for humanity, in fact, to find an attorney who has so much personal integrity in this modern day of pride, ego, greed, and opportunism.
Oddly enough, I didn't actually feel like I was on the phone with an attorney, but rather, a compassionate and concerned friend or relative who happens to be extremely well versed in the law, and on top of it all knows a thing or two about great communication.
Many attorneys will offer you a free phone consultation, and then treat you horribly once you get them on the phone. And that's if you can even get them on the phone.
Even if you are able to get them on the phone, they will treat you like a number, interrupt and condescend you, not listen carefully, not be able and/or willing to speak to you in layman's terms (and treat you like you're an idiot for not understanding), and/or rush you off the phone.
Most attorneys have zero bedside manner and the ability to provide what potential clients need the most, which is often to be reassured as it pertains to the situation they are in as well as be provided with the trustworthy information they so desperately need regarding the situation they are in.
Catherine did none of the negative things I mentioned above.
She listened carefully, treated me as a human being, and helped me to have peace of mind regarding my situation and concerns. This woman has loads of integrity, as I am certain her firm partner/husband must as well.
Do not hesitate to contact these people. They are a true gem in the legal community.
Many, many thanks Catherine.

I LOVE THESE GUYS! Unfortunately for me, in my life I have had to be involved with several big time attorneys, so I can confidently say Dan and Catherine, and the rest of their staff as well, are the best of the best. Not only are they polished, knowledgeable, and professional, they are "real" people who really do care about their clients personally. I never once was made to feel less then someone who was actually important to them and more then just a client. What's really refreshing about them is the heart behind the law which you rarely see these days and are lucky to come across at all. Not only did they do what they said they were going to do with no baloney, they won me a huge settlement far beyond my expectations and even better, they gave me my hope back that there are still loving honest professional people out there in the world. I am so grateful to Yelp for helping me find them and saving my life in many ways. Thank you so much Dan and Catherine for all your hard work on my case! I would also like to give a shout out to my friend, the Angel Armando, who helped coordinate my case and was always there for me when I needed anything from them at all. They were all a Godsend!

McGee Lerer & Associates was an absolute great pleasure to work with. I was T-boned in a hit and run accident in 2016. After the accident, my insurance company offered me the bare minimum for my injuries and the physical therapy I would need to heal. This is when I knew I needed someone to guide me, so I went looking for help.
I found Catherine through google and read about her experience in representing people who had been involved in accidents. After reading the great reviews, I decided to give her a call. We met at her Long Beach office. I told her what happened and she gave me the answers I was looking for. That day, I knew she was the right person to handle my case. As I went to physical therapy and searched for a new car, among other things, Catherine and her assistant Kelly took care of everything legal, so I could focus on my job, college and getting better. When Catherine found that I had a small amount of coverage, she advised me to up my insurance in case of any other accidents.
I did and boy am I happy I listened because only 3 and a half months later, I was in another accident where I was not driving and was rushed to the hospital where I called her to inform her I was in another accident and would be in the hospital for over a week. If Catherine had not advised me to up my insurance, I would've been in a deep hole financially because the person that was driving had the least amount of insurance. Because of Catherine, I had up'd my insurance. My underinsured motorist insurance is why I was fully compensated for my injuries in both accidents. McGee Lerer is not just a law group, but has become extended family. They took great care of me and I will forever be grateful to Catherine, Kelly and the rest of the team..

Thank you, thank you! McGee Lerer law firm! I will forever be grateful for your professionalism and tenacity. Catherine was my attorney on an accident case I was recently involved in and couldn't have been better explaining my rights and getting me a settlement that was higher than I ever expected. She worked hard and communicated the process throughout so I always felt supported and that I had someone strong representing me. She had my back and never let the other guys think they could take advantage. Very professional. Very tough and very, very effective. I highly recommend this firm.

My son was attacked by a dog causing him serious injuries. I retained McGee & Lerer after the dog owners and their insurance company tried to brush off the incident and responded in a rude and mute manner. I frequently work with attorneys because of my business, so I can tell a professional and caring lawyer when I see one; and Catherine Lerer is certainly one of them. She and her staff worked very hard and did a splendid job in representing my son. I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone who may have a personal injury case. Unlike other attorneys, they do not put your case in an assembly line.

My son was hit by a car while riding his bicycle. No other attorney was as honest with me about what to expect and the problems with my son's case. I appreciated their honesty and compassion. They went out of their way to help my son.

My wife was in a car accident and was severely injured. I was happy to see that she was in great hands and care by the McGee Lerer and Associates. They took her case and delivered more than I could have hoped for. In addition, they made sure that my wife and I were pleased with services. I highly recommend this law firm, for I was sure pleased with their services.

I was with my dog at a Santa Monica dog park when another dog attacked my dog. I tried to separate them and the other attacked me. I had bite wounds on my arm and wrist. I found McGee Lerer on the internet. They got me medical treatment and a good settlement. I was very happy with them.
