Laurel was absolutely wonderful in handling my recent case. I trust her to handle all my legal needs. She took all of the guess work out of Bankruptcy for me and everything went very smoothly thanks to her knowledge. She handles bankruptcy, family law and estate planning. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.

Laurel handled my divorce for me, and was there to answer all my questions and explain the process step by step. After a long-term marriage, this was a difficult task, but Laurel helped smooth the way. It was comforting to know she was available, either by phone or e-mail, to fill in all the tiny details that were unknown to me. If she couldn't be reached immediately by phone, Laurel was very good about returning my calls in a timely manner. I had previously dealt with another attorney on a different matter who was not at all good with communication, so I very much appreciated Laurel's approach. In the end, the law is the law, but I believe she did the best possible job she could in my circumstance. I felt I was able to put my trust in Laurel.

Laurel Tesmer represented me in a child custody suit. She was very professional, organized, extremely knowledgeable, and her skills during trial were exceptional. Laurel knows her law, cares for her clients and is very personable. I highly recommend her.

I hired this attorney to handle my mothers estate and she negelected to file paperwork which caused a 3 month delay. She also left the firm she was with and went to work for another firm and somehow forgot to let me know! She would not personally return phone calls and did not address my concerns regarding the estate! I am not at all happy with her and I feel I certainly did not get what I paid for!!!!!

The only word that truly describes Ms Tesmers efforts on my behalf is "relentless"! This was my first time working with Ms Tesmer but she has earned my complete confidence and should I need an attorney in the future she will most certainly be the one I call.

I hired this attorney from a firm to handle my late mother's estate. Unfortunately, Ms Tesmer was too busy opening her own law office to find the time to file the proper paperwork for my case. This caused a 3 month delay! (We're going on 2 years now!) Also, Ms Tesmer did not feel it was necessary to inform me she was leaving to start her own firm! I learned well after the fact!
Not exactly looking out for her client's best interests at all!
