Mindi is truly among the best lawyers in Tampa/St. Petersburg area. Her rates are reasonable and is she is willing to work with you for the payment. Her staff sends an electronic copy of the bill so that you can see exactly where you money goes. She returns all phone calls as soon as she possibly can and is honest about everything. Mindi’s staff is extremely professional and can usually answer questions without having to contact Mindi. They are very experienced which is very good for the consumer. If there is any question as to why call Mindi and ask. My case started in 2009 as a child relocation case and had evolved into multiple other cases concerning my child due to situations between my child’s mother and me. Our final case was setteled in Feb 2015. From approximately Aug 2010 to Feb 2015 I have not had a decision that did not go my way. My son’s mother has had approximately five lawyers in five years. The most recent lawyer was considered to be one of the best appeals lawyers in the area.
Mindi is remarkable in the courtroom and has a very commanding presence when making her arguments. I have seen her literally leave the opposing council speechless or on a spiraling mumble to nowhere. Mindi is very well prepared and shows an extreme amount of attention to detail, which on one occasion lead to a decision in my favor. Over a period of five years I have never had a mistake on any document that Mindi has prepared and there has never been a mistake on any that was presented to the judge. I could tell that she is very well respected in the lawyering community by the professional courtesies and respect that she was given by her peers and also the respect she garnered from the courtroom staff.
Mindi really cares about her clients and gives you all the tools you need to succeed. If you are honest with her and more importantly with yourself about your expected outcome there really is nothing to worry about.

I hired Ms. Lasley to help me with my divorce after my husband and I could no longer communicate. Ms. Lasley went into immediately went into action. She sped up the usually drawn out process of divorce. Even with all the issues with our house and the time share of my kids, she was able to win my time with my kids and I am so grateful. She was always available when I needed to talk and really took the time to help me through the worst event in my life. I felt so loss without my kids and without Ms. Lasley's diligent work I don't think I would been able to get such a great result. She is the best!

My divorce was very complicated. We had a custody battle, domestic violence, and my ex-husband is bipolar with psychotic features. She pinpointed almost everything that was going to happen in court. She never is bothered by questions, and believe me I asked a lot of them, and she is not afraid to stand her ground. That is where the small but mighty comes in. She is very soft spoken, but push her too far, and believe me she can be heard 3 counties away. And she will be heard.

I hired Ms. Lasley to represent me in my very hostile divorce. My husband's attorney was extremely aggressive, my husband lied about everything and took all the money in our joint accounts, ran up our credit cards, tried to get out of paying me any child support yet faught me for custody of my kids. My case went to trial and Ms. Lasley was extremely aggressive, got me child support, custody of my kids, more assets than he got to make up for the money he spent and even alimony. I tried to do the case without an attorney but wasn't getting anywhere and Ms. Lasley got me in front of a judge much quicker than what I was able to do. Fortunately I'm at a better place now where I can support my children and finally move on from an abusive marriage and I have Ms. Lasley to thank for that. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for an aggressive and compassioonate attorney at a reasonable price (and she even got my husband to reimburse me for part of my attorney's fees)!

Ms. Lasley mismanaged my case causing increased conflict in my case; ignored my questions regularly; lost her temper often and easily; had incompetent staff that made mistakes on paperwork which frequently caused the need for the paperwork to be redone - whereby she charged me for fixing her errors; excessively charged me once I expressed my dissatisfaction with her; was not cooperative with my new counsel once I fired her; had to reschedule my trial date due to her own personal health matter and charged me for not only the motions required to do so, but also for her "time" in preparing the motion; sent hostile and unnecessarily threatening emails that she would take legal action against me when I refused to pay a bill until she provided me with an itemized copy of that month's charges (when I did pay shortly after the itemized bill was sent to me by her, she sent an apology email to me for her behavior but insisted her behavior was appropriate); and was not honest (she often said she had filed motions with the court or taken other action that I later found out she never actually did - these failed actions on her part had great negative implications for my case). To be fair, she did help me achieve one very important success in my case. Other than the one positive success, Ms. Lasley was ineffective, unprofessional, unreliable, defensive, and with respect to how she billed me once I expressed my dissatisfaction - unethical. If I were to have to select a family law attorney again, I would only use an attorney that came recommended to me by a trusted friend who had a positive experience with a family law attorney. Nearly all the attorney's I've interacted with for my family law issue have been very similar to Ms. Lasley. They are running a business and your child and family issues mean nothing to them - your willingness to spend as much money as it takes to get your issue resolved is what does matter to them.

I’ve been divorced before and I had a bad experience during my first divorce by going with a lawyer that didn’t focus in family law so I did a lot of research and made very certain that I hired the right lawyer this time. Ms. Lasley and her staff were always very professional, easy to get in touch with and answered my questions, always kept me informed of what was going on and Ms. Lasley was extremely easy to talk to. I always felt like I was in good hands throughout the whole process. My case was quite contentious and I was extremely satisfied with my outcome. Ms. Lasley can be extremely reasonable and went above and beyond to save me costs and frustration during the process, but when it was obvious this approach wasn’t going to settle my case, she wasted no time in became extremely aggressive with my husband and his lawyer which did the trick. She was amazing in court. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.
