About Us


We know that going to court or being injured is a very stressful experience. The environment is antagonistic and you can be sure that your opponent will pursue all means necessary against you. If you're afraid, it's perfectly understandable. That is why at Lerner & McDonald, each client is treated as a person with a unique set of problem solving needs, rather than a number whose problems can fit into one of several cookie cutter formulas.

During this difficult time, you need more than just someone who will speak on your behalf. You need someone who will shield you from all the slurs and attacks of your opponent and fight on your behalf. You need friendly advice that is professional, experienced, and will help you achieve what you want. We will be there to guide you and we will zealously represent you in your time of need.

Our job requires compassion and demands professional attention. At Lerner & McDonald, we have a dedicated team of experienced legal professionals who will work hard to help you in your time of need.
