I understand that all attorneys either are liked or disliked by prior clients due to the outcome of the case. However, my 2000$ retainer never made it to court or even negotiations with the opposing attorney. I was charged 1037.00 for email communication after she stated she could handle all my issues for 1500$. Before I released her from her services, she wanted to converse over the phone at 300$ an hour instead of email communications that are .2 or .3 the money. she never fulfilled her promises to me and received my money on doing nothing but emailing me back and forth. Nothing got resolved... I had her for 4 months with little to nothing being completed and all I got for my money was false promises and a fake knowledge over military issues within family law. She claimed she knew it all and I had to show her on many occasions that she was wrong and supply her with the Navy instructions. She was my 5th attorney that failed me... I have wasted so much money and no results due to these attorneys being afraid of my Ex's attorney and believe that she has the "JOHNNY COCHRAN" of family law.
I cannot say anything bad about the Lasky Law Firm. Cindy and her team are absolutely amazing, just so professional at all times. Prior to going to them I was scared and very uncertain of the possible outcomes. After the very first consultation, I left feeling like a weight was taking off my shoulders. This was because, I could immediately tell that I was being represented by the best. Cindy and Heather and their paralegals were so helpful, knowledgable and respectful! Throughout the entire process they went above and beyond for me. Every time I reach out with a question, I received an answer in a very timely fashion. Just so knowledgeable and reassuring. I would trust them with anything! I can't thank them enough for all they did. They took a negative part of my life and quickly turned it into a positive! I will continue to recommend them to friends, family and others. Thank you so much Lasky Law Firm!
If you are looking for a good law firm that will be aggressive, follow up, go the extra mile you have found the one!! I can’t say enough good things about the Lasky Law Firm. My husband had an extremely difficult case and they were able to finally put it to an end. My husband was originally divorced in a state other than Florida and his child support obligation was to remain in effect until the children were emancipated by the court (not just by turning 18). We first tried to litigate it here in Florida where his X made a huge stink to go back to the original state the order was first made and we ended up litigating there for two years, meanwhile she was still collecting child support! Once that was finished we still had to litigate here in Florida for the local courts to adopt our order and credit us back for years of overpaid child support. We called multiple law firms and they seemed uninterested in our case as it didn’t seem that it would be “ongoing” enough for them to waste their time getting involved. We ended up talking to a nice young man at the Lasky Law Firm who answered all of our questions and set us up with a consultation right away. After speaking with one of the lawyers there we decided to retain and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome at this point!!!! We had to go to yet another trial and the Law Firm worked on this case as a team for several nights beforehand preparing. I wanted to mention that the hearing ended up being in Orlando and they were able to go with reasonable added expense. We won our case and now the X has a $24K+ judgment due to us. Cindy and her crew saved us and got us out of the system and able to move forward with our lives. Would highly recommend!!
Cindy and her team have been by my side through my family law issues,, without hesitation!! Everyone on the team knows their job and all worked together to fulfill my needs, no matter if it was spur of the moment or advance notice. Cindy and Heather are amazing representatives and they do not back down, from what is right. Desire is incredible and has walked me through some tough times and Judy has been amazing with the billing and accounting process. Cindy Lasky and her team truly care for your well being and are extremely professional.
Cindy worked 3 years on a very difficult case for me. I found her to be honest, caring and willing to go to trial to enforce my rights. I wouldn't go to any other attorney for a difficult case!
Cindy was referred to me by a friend and I have not had any regrets on hiring her as my lawyer. Not only is she very knowledgeable in this proffesion but she is honest and I feel she tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. She is very quick to answer any of my concerns whether it is during office hours or it is nine o'clock at night. She has shown nothing but kindness and understanding when I have spoken with her about my situation. Cindy Lasky has made it to where my family and I feel protected and safe and I will be thankful to her for that always.
I wrote a post about this firm 3 months ago. I was very upset with their perceived performance in handling my case. It appear to me at the time that they were not handling my case the way that they should. Well I was wrong. Since then, I have come to realize that they're performance was in my best interest. Subsequently, they have been more than helpful and responsive. They are very knowledgeable in the area of divorce and also helped me to be better informed. I have also found their performance to be very trust worthy and straight forward. Ron Davis and the staff of Lasky Law firm has continued to change my perception of my case and their firm as a whole. I would therefore recommend this firm to anyone who has to go through the challenges of divorce.
I first hired Cindy Lasky in December of 2008. I had a domestic violence hearing I needed representation for. The retainer was comparable to other firms I called & I went with LLF based on their Folio Weekly “Top Family Law Lawyer” in Jax award. I was young & in fear for my life & my lawyer provided great comfort & stood up for my rights in a way I could not have done myself. A few months later, they handled my Dissolution of Marriage (with children)-again, comparable retainer & excellent service.
Fast forward to 2012, I had child support issues that needed handling & wanted to hold my ex accountable for years of neglecting my children & failure to pay child support. Cindy handled several hearings, mediations, & all kinds of motions to get us there. She is always on time, always prepared. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this woman. We ultimately ended up needing to arrange Termination of Rights & Step-parent Adoption. Cindy felt Heather (lawyer in office) would be a better fit for the case due to her experience in adoptions. Heather was just as wonderful as Cindy.
As for her staff, I have never felt “brushed off” or “kept on the phone to prolong billable hours”. I used to be a bookkeeper & I keep exhaustive records of everything. I went over every monthly statement with a fine-tooth comb & only found one mistake once & it was fixed promptly. Desire (paralegal) is AMAZING. Answers e-mails within MINUTES. I read some of the negative reviews on here & I cannot imagine where they came from because I have experienced nothing but above & beyond service from these people.
The only “negative” I can think of is Cindy is quite aggressive. (I don't find this to be negative though!) She takes her job seriously & is not going to waste your time or hers on drama and anything that is not going to ultimately help your case. She will tell you point-blank if something is relevant & usable or not in the courtroom. She is a “bulldog” & I would rather have Cindy in my corner than against me!!
A Must Hire. Having a military spouse back ground (active duty and retired) in addition to her superior knowledge of Florida Family Law, I thanked god my spouse did not find her before me. A no nonsense person, she kept me focused on the details at hand and compared to my spouses attorney, never once was I monetarily taken advantage of. Her staff is professional and friendly and over all, considering my purpose for hiring her and her firm, hoping I never get divorced again, Lasky Law Firm will always be in my contacts list.
I hired miss Cindy to help me with my divorce. my ex wife was very difficult. I am in the Navy and I didn't think I had any chance to get custody. We had a trial and Cindy was awesome. She got me custody of my daughter and I got to take her overseas with me. Cindy also knew all about military stuff. The other attorney did not. Cindy kicked butt. I wanted a military lawyer who was in the military because military should help each other. That was Cindy. Sure divorce is expensive but my wife paid more than me and I won. I highly recommend this firm. Erik
