4.0 stars 9 totalReview Lori Bovee
I'm very satisfied with her work and her compassion for helping families with family court issues.She's a caring and understanding and a dedicated lawyer .You can call her anytime of the day or night she's always there for you.Thats what I call dedication I would recommend her to anyone.
An unsatisfied person should come to her??!! That's her answer??? How about the dozens and dozens of times I did just that, but COMPLETELY IGNORED me over and over and over.
This incompetent, unethical bad person abandoned me the moment my divorce was finalized. Post divorce paperwork that she had started months prior (for which I have paid over $1200) was NEVER COMPLETED. Her extreme negligence actually put me in legal jeopardy when I was served with a motion regarding paperwork she received for me to sign but NEVER GAVE ME! THEN, I actually had to edit a QDRO with a typo (about the 8th revision, all of which I paid for) myself and mail it to the court for the judge to sign, MYSELF. Luckily, the court attorney knew the situation quite well and the judge agreed to sign the document and mail it to _me_, (so I could then have it to complete MORE paperwork which Lori never finished) even though Lori Bovee was still listed as representing me. THEN, I came very close to LOSING my portion of the ex's PENSION (!!!) because she had informed me everything for _that_ was taken care of. My dozens of attempts to communicate with her, asking for updates on the progress of all this paperwork, failed.
She just ignored me. I am STILL trying to get back my $1200.00 I paid for paperwork that I ended up doing myself since I could not afford to pay ANOTHER attorney to do the work I paid her to do. I've got it all documented, saved all the emails and billing statements. WATCH OUT!!! Will she come back blaming the firm she worked for? NOT ANY KIND OF EXCUSE!!!
I received very timely responses from the service in general! Three lawyers to be specific. I really appreciated the quick turn around and I was pointed in the right direction by one lawyer in a different discipline, however, Ms. Bovee replied with a concise, comprehensive answer, an indicator of her knowledge and expertise as a Family Law Attorney.

Ms Bovee was very compassionate, helpful and knowledgeable in my family court matter that involved grandparents, custody and making sure my son had the services he needed. Without going into specifics, the case ended up being much more involved than initially thought, but she stuck with it and brought me to a good resolution. I was always able to contact her and her advice was invaluable.

I retained Attorney Bovee for a child support modification, which became necessary following domestic violence incidents, my own disability as a result, and my children's increased needs. Lori is professional, proactive and, most importantly, does not suffer fools. Unlike my children's father's attorney, whose arguments had nothing to do with the legal merits and were squarely aimed at attempting to portray me as paranoid, lazy and gold-digging, Lori focused on the legal arguments of the case and applied appellate decisions which were directly related. Most importantly to me, Lori took my case personally. As one who has seen many people promised the sun, moon and stars by attorneys who then treat them as a number, Lori was invested in my case from the beginning. She is able to go directly to the heart of the matter without needing to "destroy" the other party. She kept the focus on my children's needs and, when the other party refused to settle and hired an attorney, Lori went into overdrive making sure my children would get a fair hearing of the facts in court. She kept the main thing the main thing and her arguments on point. While there were many opportunities for Lori to personally attack the other party, she remained professional and focused. Lori also ensured that my disability accommodations were honored and was sensitive to the needs my disability created, which was incredibly important for my testimony. I have already recommended Lori several times and will continue to do so.

Lori was motivated getting my case, after that she continued to drop the ball with my proposals, she needs to be more proactive and focus on the clients needs, not the other attorney or law guardian, after all I am the one paying her. Good luck!

Lori Bovee is a FANTASTIC attorney. I hired Lori for my Divorce. I was out of state. Lori made me feel so at ease. She is easy to talk to, she is confident and she is extremely well versed in Marital Law. She was able to get the case dismissed and moved to my state. She is a genuine person. She is trustworthy and professional. I would recommend Lori Bovee to everyone in NY Albany and surrounding area. Thank you Lori for everything!!! You delivered and you are someone who made a difference in my life.

Lori exhibited a great deal of knowledge, commitment and genuine care while handling my legal situation. She presented facts, suggestions and recommendations with my best interest in mind during negotiations and family court appearances. Lori's understanding and experience in family court law gave me a comfortable and confident feeling when corresponding with opposition attorneys and courtroom hearings. I would highly recommend Ms. Bovee to anyone in need of a good attorney who really understands family law.

Lori was extreemly compassionate and supportive. The professionalism and diligence with which she dealt with the opposing attorney reinforced my belief in her. She helped me to feel confident in my decisions and supported me in what was best for my son and me. I would definitely recommend Lori and call on her again, as I have.
