“I am so pleased with my dealings with John Lewman. What prompted me to do this review, is that he consistently exceeds my expectations on his responsiveness. I have such trust in him because of this, and also the comprehensive way he answers my questions. He is patient and I’m never left feeling “rushed off” like with some other lawyers. The legal documentation he produces also exceeds my expectations. He’s on top of it, and knows what he’s doing. I’m extremely happy to have him as a resource, and I encourage others to seek out his services. You won’t be disappointed! Thank you, John, for everything.”

Lea P – Danville, California

“I highly recommend John Lewman, Attorney at Law, for any type of legal need and advice. I had a particularly involved case involving personal trust distributions. I did not know where to start. I was referred to Mr. Lewman who assisted me from beginning to end, took all my calls and responded immediately regardless of day/time. He accurately assessed the situation, asked appropriate questions and within a short period of time, the trusts were set up to the letter of the law. I shall refer all my clients, family and friends to him. For my personal financial and legal matters, I will be returning to Lewman Law.”

Mike F – Pleasanton, California

“I had multiple legal issues needing to be resolved…John’s diversity and understanding of law was a key part in reaching settlements and resolving my legal problems. During both of my cases in front of two different judges it was apparent that John was well known and respected by colleagues and peers. One of the judges tells me I have a good lawyer. Not only is John a good lawyer but he is also a very good litigator. I would recommend Lewman Law, and John Lewman to friends and family.”
