In search for guidance on Estate Planning and as Beneficiary of a Trust, I researched (15) Tri-Valley law firms and contacted (6).

Tierney Law Group stood out from the rest. Not only do they offer a wide range of services (from estate planning to family law, and litigation), but:

– their front line staff are personable and helpful
– access to a timely, free 15-minute consult is a breeze
– Kent is generous with his knowledge of the law, a straight-talker, and extremely personable. Unlike other attorneys, he talks to potential clients like they’re his own family/friends, and truly wants to assist where he can.

In a daunting legal environment where everyday people can feel intimidated, their interests under-represented, Tierney Law Group can offer a breath of fresh air. I found the firm on Yelp, and so wanted to write this review. Thank You, Kent and Team.

We needed expert guidance on a real estate matter and Kent was incredibly responsive, understanding, and knowledgeable. I was so very thankful that I reached out to him, and wish we had done so earlier! Highly recommend his firm!

Kristine Z.

I don’t even know where to start how much Kent has helped me for almost the last three years. Every question, and every idea that I had, Kent was just a phone call away. He is a man of his word and will get up and defend you and cease any attack that is happening or coming your way. I placed 100% of my trust in Kent Tierney Law Group.

Going forward in the future if there is any kind of contract that I don’t completely understand? I will immediately call up Kent and make an appointment for him to look over the paperwork. He is a very extremely intelligent person and a goodhearted person as well.
He provides the Nordstrom of customer service!!! With that said, I will always be a client and a friend to him for life!!

Kent recently helped me with a conflict I was having with a business broker I had been working with. I needed help quick to analyze my contract with the broker so I could figure out how to proceed without finding myself in hot water in the future. Kent was very prompt in communicating with me and helping me navigate my way forward. I highly recommend him and can’t thank him enough for clarifying exactly what I needed to figure out.

Natalie L.

The best !!!
Dealing with an eviction after the moratorium was lifted in Ca. What a shit show ! If is wasn’t for Kent I would have never gotten through it.
He guided me at each step. Making sure I filled the right paperwork work at the right time. Supported me in the process to get me through the it. Kent kept me on track and focus so I could get to the finish line.
The good news Is that the tenants are out and I couldn’t have done it without Kent.

Lenette C.

T&M has been a great firm to work with since the very beginning of this pandemic. I initially contacted Kent with a reasonable rate for consultation and he was able to give very sound advice. A year later, I also came back for another consultation which was at no charge. He’s been able to provide sound advice again. Thank you for your assistance and I will continue to work with him.

Chris-Henry V.

I have nothing but positive things to say. Usually, in life we hope to never find ourselves in a situation where we need a lawyer, however I could not be more grateful I found Tierney Law Group. Kent Tierney is professional, gracious, and will fight for you. When working with Kent, I could tell he is a man of integrity and could feel his genuine compassion for people. He is highly skilled in his field and I never doubted his expertise and judgement when handling my case.

Personally, I am not an expert when it comes to legal knowledge. Kent was very patient, walked me through each step of the process, and made things clear and concise. He was always welcoming and never made me feel foolish for asking questions or for want I needed. He was honest and provided me with reasonable expectations and peace of mind throughout. In the end, Tierney Law Group resolved my case to my complete satisfaction with less stress and pain than I ever would have expected. Before hiring Tierney Law Group, I absolutely dreaded having to get a lawyer. Now, I cannot imagine a smoother process. I cannot thank Kent Tierney and his team enough for how they handled my case!

Tiana H.

Kent and the team at Tierney law have been fantastic. I had a major issue that was intensified as a result of Covid. While other law groups were slow and or lacking in their response, Kent and the folks at Tierney Law Group were swift and clear in communication, answering all relevant questions, discussing options, and providing a solid game-plan. I was very impressed by Kent’s professionalism and knowledge. I’d recommend them to anyone in need of strong law team!

Sal B.

Kent is the best lawyer you can ever ask for! We scheduled for a virtual consultation and he gave us such helpful advice that we never would’ve known with our other lawyer. Talking with him made us wish we knew about him sooner. We will definitely get him for our future rental properties. He is very wise, honest and down to earth with his level of experience and expertise. Choose him with confidence! 🙂


We were referred to Kent by a friend of a friend. He listened attentively to our situation and provided guidance and support through a very difficult process. We were extremely grateful to have his knowledge and expertise available to us. He always had our best interests in mind, even if it meant suggesting not to utilize him for certain things to save us money. We highly recommend Kent if you are looking for a knowledgeable lawyer who is personable and always looking out for your best interests.

Carey G.

Mr. Tierney was very patient and spent a large chunk of his valuable time to explain the legal realities to my friend and make her feel a huge sense of relief;…and all pro bono. Kudos to you Mr. Tierney. You are a credit to your profession.

Lisa A.

I have asked my mortgage broker if he can recommend a good lawyer for witnessing, commissioning and notarizing paperwork. He immediately recommend Kent Tierney without hesitation. We (my wife and myself) had Kent witness some legal paperwork and his service and genuine direct attitude did not disappoint one bit. He was very professional and extremely accommodating and personable. This will not be our last time to head to Kent if we needed any legal advice or service. Kent, thank you again for what you have done. We sincerely appreciate it.

Mamdouh Y.

I wasn’t able to work with Kent but he was able to take the time to respond to me and offer a referral. I appreciate the time and professionalism!

Kent was down to earth and very professional. He was very helpful in answering our questions and easy to work with. I appreciate the extra time he took in explaining everything in details on a complex issue. Highly recommended attorney services you can trust. Thank you.

We retained Kent and his team to help us with a property transaction for our daughter and son in-law. I must say he exceeded our expectations. Kent and his team are very professional, yet personable. They understand the big picture result, yet effectively cover all the details. I do not hesitate in recommending the Tierney Law Group, as they will continue to be our Go-To Legal Experts! “Fair, Responsive, Knowledgeable, Competent and Effective”

Ed S.

I was recently referred to Kent Tierney for some real estate help. Not only was he helpful and knowledgeable but because my issue was really straight forward, he gave me quick advice and help me resolve my issue without charging me. I greatly appreciate his honesty and integrity. If I need legal help in the future I will be back.

Wilson L.

Mr. Tierney is a great attorney and will do everything to help you out. I did an initial phone consultation and then met with Kent personally. They set up a new Limited Liability Company for us along with an initial operating agreement. The firm’s fees are reasonable compared to on-line DYI sites like legal zoom, rocket lawyer, etc.) and you actually get to speak with a lawyer who can give you real time advice. We will definitely continue to use Tierney for all of our legal needs. Thank you Kent.

Pradeep G.

Mr. Tierney handled a very difficult custody matter for me and our children. He filed an emergency order during the holidays and made himself available when we needed his counsel. We were ultimately successful with our motion and I have to give all the credit to him for getting it done. I cannot say enough about this man and what he has done for me and my children. Do not hesitate using Tierney & Mercado. They know what they are doing and truly care about their clients.

Todd R.

I continue to use Tierney Law Group for all my personal legal matters. I run a business with lots of ongoing issues and every time I need sound legal advice I contact Kent. He always walks me through everything that I need to do and keeps me advised of what is in my best interest. The firm’s rates are some of the most reasonable rates of any attorney I have ever worked with. I recommend Tierney to all my friends, family and people that need a good lawyer.

Benjamin W.

We originally used TLG a few years ago and recently hired Kent to handle another Real Estate matter for my development company. He handled all required paperwork to set up new business and is currently handling a complex litigation matter involving construction and breach of contract issues. Mr. Tierney is very experienced and a fantastic listener. If you need any help with your business or real estate matters you should definitely give this firm a call. Thank you again Kent.

Sanjay G.

Having been stiffed for several-months rent by an unscrupulous former tenant, we hired Kent Tierney to help us recover the loss. After Kent’s two demand letters were dismissed by the receiving party, formal litigation was initiated by filing a complaint with the court. Ultimately, the case was resolved to our satisfaction through pre-trial settlement. Without question, Kent’s expertise in landlord-tenant law – specifically, in upholding landlord’s rights – was instrumental in bringing this matter to an acceptable conclusion. Given Kent’s responsiveness, directness, intimate knowledge of landlord-tenant law, & extensive experience with the local court system, we’d certainly turn to him again if need arises (hopefully, it doesn’t). In summary, Kent’s services are highly recommended.

James J.

I have used many attorneys over the years and went out searching for a new one after my long time attorney retired. During this process I met with a few other attorneys before giving Tierney Law Group a call. They set up a consultation with Mr. Tierney and my initial impression was that he was not like other attorneys. He was very direct and to the point about my situation but also very thoughtful and understanding in his approach. He did not talk down to me and gave me several options on how to handle the case. They kept me up to date through every stage of the case and responded to my emails and questions (probably too many to be honest) in a timely manner. Litigation can be hard to deal with and their guidance was incredibly helpful during this difficult process.

The staff was tremendously helpful and their paralegals made dealing with the firm efficient and less time consuming. They were always thorough and meticulous about everything.

I am not at liberty to discuss the specifics of my case, but I can say that I am very happy with the results and I would recommend Mr. Tierney and his firm to anyone looking for a good attorney.

Aarav S.

Tierney Law Group was referred to us by another business associate who had used them before with great results. Kent, even with his busy schedule, was very patient with our questions (and there were a lot of them), taking the needed time to explain the in’s and out’s of the divorce process, going above and beyond what another attorney would have done. Beside his great business manner, he is just a good guy. He obviously likes helping people; something you will feel it within the first minute of talking with him. He is now my go to attorney. Hands down, you cant go wrong with the firm.

If you encounter any real estate, contract or any litigation issues, contact Kent T. first!! They helped me regarding real estate and family law issues. They are knowledgeable, straight forward and let me know their recommendations as well as what needs to be done. Most of all, they put my best interests as their top priority. They are responsive – whenever I have questions no matter in email, text or voice mail, they provide their expertise. I can’t thank them enough for helping me went thru the whole process. I wish I would have contacted them earlier when I first encountered my issues. I highly recommend Kent Tierney.


Kent Tierney is the best ! As a former client I can say that you should contact this Firm. I give them my highest ratings and I am an experienced person in my 50’s and I know the difference in great client representation and bad client representation. He is the best! Ethical, Ethical Ethical!!!

Erica C.

After three lawyers and 10 years of losing most of my court hearings, I was about to give up. Then I was referred to Mr. Tierney. During my free initial consultation Kent reviewed my court paperwork, listened to my past experiences, current situation and hopes for the future, and came up with a game plan. He has a great courtroom presence, is well liked by the court staff and is confident and professional when delivering his case. Within 6 months, Kent helped me get custody of my children increased and the amount I pay in child support dramatically decreased. I’m still in shock that our court battle is FINALLY over thanks to Mr. Tierney!
I will definitely refer family, friends and colleagues to Tierney and Mercado, PC.

Casie Z.

I relocated to Asia in early 2016, unfortunately, my tenant started giving me headache after spending more than $8,000 on home improvement to make him happy. I hired a property manager to take care of my tenant, but my tenant started to intimidate me. The property manager suggested me to hire a lawyer to resolve issues. Finding an attorney was not a fun thing to do overseas, I am grateful that I found Kent (kudos to Yelp!). Our communication was done via emails and phone calls (date and time were always agreed before I called up) due to the time and location differences (Asia vs. America). I can see how busy he is and how small my case was (from attorney’s point of view), however, he always responded to my emails in time and made time to talk to me over the phone. In addition, he has a menu price list, which gives me an idea how much to budget for the worse case scenario. My case was a bit complicated because both sides, tenant and landlord, did not fully understand the real estate law and contract law, it required a professional to make sure I did everything right, and my tenant had no right to do what he claimed “lawful”. The case was resolved peacefully as I wished. I want to express my gratitude for his efforts and time. With his experience and knowledge of the law, I am no longer intimidated by nonsense.

Liz C

After sending an email asking for an initial consulting. I get an immediate response from Kent. It was fast that I made an appointment with Kent the next email. I know how busy a lawyer can be. with In 20 mins during the initial consulting, Kent gave me a thorough appraisal of my situation, advised my options, and potential legal impacts and outcomes that I haven’t thought about it. Kent didn’t charge me for this appointment. I highly recommend Kent. He has definitely earned my trust, respect, and future reference. I also like to acknowledge Kent for being so friendly, helpful, and engaging!

John B.

Kent & Michael took my case one month before trial on a civil matter involving improper construction and a breach of contract. They were not afraid to take the case on short notice and more importantly they were not afraid to go to trial. A number of local attorneys refused to take my case because they appeared to be hesitant to go to trial. In the end we won at trial on our case ($60,000) and the other side got nothing on their counter claim. Excellent job by a great group of people.

Dr. S

We worked with Kent on an issue and he was very knowledgeable & helpful. Prompt responses were greatly appreciated. Kent really knows his stuff which makes working with him a breeze. We would definitely work with him again, but hope we don’t have to

Sarika S.

My husband and I reached out to Kent looking for help with real estate issues we were having. When he returned our call, he listened to our story without hesitation. He was so kind, easy to talk to, and so down to earth that we couldn’t believe we were talking to a real “LAWYER!”

I was impressed on how dedicated Kent is to his work. He was so prompt in returning emails and arranging telephone meetings to accommodate our schedules. His heart is definitely in the right place- helping people.

He was always quick to the point, upfront, and truthful. He gave us different scenarios that we were not even aware of! Because of Kent, we had the knowledge and courage to face our fears. With his guidance, we were able to get our of our tricky situation. For this, we are forever grateful! And now we know who to turn to and recommend!

THANK YOU for helping us!!!

G V.

Kent was very knowledgable about what needed to be done regarding my case and situation. He was always very truthful and didn’t sugar coat things, which was refreshing. If something was not the most beneficial for me, he told me so, rather than just proceeding along, charging me the whole way! Since my case has been done, I’ve contacted him with a couple of questions, and he always gets back to me, and has been really helpful. He’s very trustworthy and I would have no problems using him again for anything if necessary. This is how professional attorneys are supposed to be, and he’s great!

Dana H.

Tierney & Mercado represented us in a civil case in San Andreas County involving a very complex real estate issue. They represented us zealously over a two year period which ended in a court trial. We were successful at trial and were awarded nearly $250,000 in damages. We cannot say enough about the great job Mr. Tierney & Mr. Mercado did at trial. They were articulate and passionate about our case and fought hard for our legal rights. Our family is very grateful and 100% satisfied with the work performed. Thank you again guys for the awesome job.

Lance & Renee D.

Mr. Tierney is one of the most compassionate lawyers I have ever met. He stayed in contact with me during the proceedings, which helped me to stay calm during my very difficult family court hearings. We were victorious in the end thanks to Mr. Tierney’s counsel.

If you want a good and honest lawyer you can depend on, Mr. Tierney is the man to go to for representation. Excellent service!

Audrey M.

Thank you for handling my parent’s case and getting them an excellent result. You definitely came through and made me look good. I truly appreciate the great work.

Ron B.

Mr. Tierney and his firm handle all of our real estate company’s legal matters and have done a tremendous job. Their eviction service is top-notch and their knowledge on the subject is second to none. We are more than pleased with the quality of service they provide and the reasonable fees they charge. Keep up the excellent work!!

Andrew K.

These guys handled my divorce and guided me through the entire process, answering all my questions and providing me with all of the information I needed to make smart decisions and protect my best interests. In the end it went almost exactly as they said it would. Thank you for everything.

Tony T.

We met with Kent regarding a possible issue during a purchase of a home. He advised us and recommended people to investigate our potential issue during a free consultation. We didn’t end up hiring him because it turned out that we really didn’t have an issue, but he clearly has a lot of integrity because he could’ve easily asked for money before even determining whether we had a case. He seems very knowledgeable and I would definitely hire him if needed an attorney in the areas he represents.

Miss K

Kent Tierney has been the best and most thorough attorney I’ve ever had represent me. He’s very thorough, has quick answers for what I’ve always needed to know, and has given me the confidence that in whatever he has given me advice on that I know I have nothing to worry about. I know I am always in good hands with him. I wish more attorneys were as approachable as he is!

Chris M.

Kent, thank you for your incredible knowledge and personal attention with our case. My family would not have been able to get the results we deserved without your help.

Corey R.

Mr. Tierney handles all legal aspects of our eviction process and has come through for our company time after time. He clearly understands the eviction process and the laws that govern it. He has been very effective and efficient for our company in the prejudgment and court phases of the process. With that said, the biggest value for us has been his ability to communicate the status on each of our cases clearly and timely. We have been through many attorneys and have never had this level of communication and confidence. This is one of the numerous reasons why I think we have been so successful with our cases in court. Teamwork and communication is everything to be successful. Thank you Kent and Sherrie for your hard work and dedication to our cases.

Derik D.

No doubt that Attorney Kent Tierney is the guy you want on your team – this guy was by my side from the beginning to the end and always had my best interest in mind.

I would most certainly call on Kent’s services again if I needed to.


Kent all I can say is that when I need your help, you have always been there for me. I remember when I called you a few weeks ago and needed some good advice. You quickly helped me solve the legal issue I was dealing with.
