Lori Buiteweg is the epitome of excellence, both as an attorney and as a human being. She took my case which was an extremely complicated family law matter, and worked diligently on my behalf, as well as on behalf of my child. Despite high conflict from the opposing attorney and client, Lori never backed down in the face of abusive litigation and bullying, and consistently crafted wise legal strategy that was executed flawlessly and with great precision. Lori is a tireless worker and it was her incredible work ethic that always propelled our case forward, and in the right direction.
Lori loves the law and her passion for it is obvious. That passion is what fuels her equally obvious talent for practicing the law and I always felt that my case, and my child's best interests, were always in excellent hands with Lori leading the way. She is articulate, acutely intelligent, attentive to detail, and possesses a wonderful sense of humor which is a reassuring gift during the stress of a divorce and custody matter.
Lori has a sincere warmth about her and is genuinely concerned with the well-being of her clients. She clearly cares about people and always puts them first while also managing to focus like a laser on the matter at hand and the appropriate outcomes that are integral to her clients' best interests.
Lori achieved the best possible outcome in my case and worked non-stop to achieve it. She has a particularly brilliant mind and her capacity for creating and executing near-perfect strategy, logic, and well-reasoned problem-solving, is unsurpassed.
I could not have made a better choice than Lori when I chose an attorney. There is, quite simply, no one better in the field of Family Law than Lori A. Buiteweg.
From the moment I walked in Lori's office I knew she was the lawyer for me. I was going through one of the most stressful times of my life and she was not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful person. She was able to help me see through the fog and I always knew she had my and my daughter's best interest at heart. She always went the extra mile to make sure things gone done that needed to be done. She was honest and informative and extremely knowledgable. I could not have gone through this divorce without her! It's nice to know there are such good people in the world who are also smart and practical.
Lori was very upfront and open, and the consistent honesty, courtesy and professionalism of each member of the firm impressed us. Considering our unusual circumstances, there were no suprises. You helped us understand the legalities of our siutationvery well.
When my son was just a very young child, he and his siblings were talking about their future occupations. They suggested that he might want to be a lawyer. He screamed out, "I don't want to be a ly-er", he thought they were suggesting he be a "liar". Although some may associate that for attorneys they are one and the same, I've found the integrity much different with the attorneys at Nichols, Sacks, Slank, Sendelbach & Buiteweg.
I understand when God said, "He hates divorce". So do I!!! But when necessary, it is essential to have someone in court with you who understands how difficult, extreme, and exhaustive, going through divorce is. The toll divorce takes on you and your family is excruciating. Some may take divorce lightly, but I would never have divorced if it was not for the incessant, extremely severe abuse to my children and myself by their father and my husband. Lori demonstrated great dedication to my case and not only knew how difficult it was for me and my children, but took great pains to make it workable for me. She has passion not only for the law, but in making the law work for me. She has an understanding of the struggles not only of difficulties of a failed and abusive marriage, but has great concern for the effects of the divorce on your children and the implications of the law on them. Lori knows how to listen well, is an effective negotiator, and is very skilled at helping you walk through this dark valley. She is efficient with your time and although every second counts, she works toward making the process work toward your best good. So many times, Lori went well above and beyond in helping me through this process.
I've sat across the table from some lawyers that I've wondered if they were simply in it for the $$, or if it made their day demeaning and chewing me to bits. His attorneys went to great lengths to question my integrity, and fought in ways that in my opinion were beneath the integrity of the court. Lori fights for you but does not demean your ex-spouse. She is sensitive and has a compassionate drive for truth and principle. She recognizes her accountability to you and to the specifics of your case. She is perceptive, sympathetic and helps keep you informed throughout the grueling process. Lori is a strong determined attorney, but does not hesitate to recognizes there is an ultimate Judge that will in the end make all things right.
Having worked with more than one attorney of NSSSB in more than my particular case, I highly recommend their talent, tenacity and fortitude.
Lori was creative and reacted to the changing situation as it unfolded. She always kept checking back with me on what my ultimate goals ere in the situation. She recommended other resources (seminars, books, People) that complemented the legal advice she was providing me.
She was always accessible.
