Testimonials

When I was looking for an attorney to represent me in my divorce, I talked to a few divorce attorneys before finding Mr. Lerner. He was recommended to me by an attorney friend of mine, and I’m so glad I found him. Although I naively thought the divorce proceedings would be fairly straightforward, both my former husband and his attorney took many steps to create obstacles and unreasonable delays and to complicate the steps. He demonstrated both great skill and compassion as he represented me. Although going through a divorce is distressing, knowing that I had a skilled, highly ethical, and capable attorney made the experience far less distressing than it might have been otherwise. I am grateful for Mr. Lerner’s legal acumen, extensive experience, and attention to detail, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for quality legal representation. S. E.


I would like to thank you for your representation of us in the referenced matter. Your professionalism, dedication, and continued hard work were instrumental in allowing us to emerge victorious in the case. We were all impressed with your ability to learn the complexities of our business and through witnesses, successfully explain those complexities to the jury. Should we require skilled litigation services in the future, we most certainly will call upon you. N.C.


Thank you for your successful representation of our company in the complex trademark, tortious interference and defamation case that recently ended after four exhausting years of litigation before the United States District Court in Kansas. As a consulting and professional service firm doing business with large corporate and government clients, our reputation for integrity and good practices is critically important. For that reason alone, our victory in this case was extremely important to us.

When we engaged you for this case we had every confidence that you would leave no stone unturned in winning it for us. You have always provided us with thorough and professional legal advice and representation during a relationship that has spanned two decades. I was confident you would do so again in this compacted case. You did not disappoint me. As you know, as an attorney, I am critical of the performance of many attorneys. You, on the other hand, are among the few who continuously impress their clients with performance, professionalism, and results across a myriad of issues and venues.

Because value is also an important issue with us, I want to thank you for operating an efficient office with low overhead and for maintaining a highly competitive rate structure. As a consequence of the quality of your service and rate structure, we find the value of your service to be exceptional. We receive outstanding legal representation at or below an hourly rate than other senior litigation attorneys’ rates, many of whom cannot match your knowledge or capabilities. R.S.


Mick Lerner has provided legal services to our company, a major engineering/design/manufacturing company, for the past ten years. In his capacity as our legal counsel, he has litigated several disputes. His work has been outstanding, and he balances the risk of litigation with the potential benefits. His advice has been invaluable.

Because he is skilled at efficiently managing his time, he has been able to keep his overhead low and his hourly rate at a very attractive level. We greatly value Mr. Lerner’s help and give him the highest recommendation. J. B.


I first engaged Mr. Lerner as counsel in the 1990s, for a personal matter, and I have used him for a number of commercial matters since then. I recommend him, without qualification, as an extremely competent, and extremely thorough, attorney.

As an architect, practicing in the greater Kansas City area for over 50 years, I have dealt with many fine lawyers. It is safe to say that I have grown to appreciate the qualities of the lawyers who can deliver tangible results, in a timely manner, at a reasonable cost. Mick Lerner has impressed me so much with his expertise, and sound business judgment, that I consider him my first choice to handle any legal matter, especially if litigation, or potential litigation, is involved. I know that other clients of his share my regard for his legal ability.

Equally important to me is the integrity of any lawyer to whom I entrust substantial legal matters. Mr. Lerner has proven repeatedly that he adheres to the highest ethical standards. I trust him implicitly, and I’m sure that any new client of his would quickly do the same. M. M.
