Lauren is a wonderful person and attorney. Even when I was frustrated in my case because of my ex, she took time to explain why she was doing what she was doing, and always wanted me to understand. She won at court for me, and in the end, everything worked out. She was reasonable when she could be, and aggressive when she needed to be. I am so grateful to her for everything.
I hired Lauren for my divorce. I was stressed, worried, and didn't know where to turn. When I met with her, she was very realistic and reassuring about what I could expect. When we went to court the first time, she was amazing. The judge knew her, and about 5 other attorneys stopped to say hi in the hallway. She got me what I wanted and more than I expected. She always answered my questions and cared about me and my kids. I always knew what was going on with my case. Needless to say, my now ex-husband is not happy. :)
I hired Lauren as my divorce lawyer. I am so happy I did. She made me feel very comfortable, and was very realistic in terms of what I should expect in my case. She fought very hard for me, even when I was tired and wanted to quit, she encouraged me to keep going, and to see the big picture. I am so glad she did, because I ended up getting a great deal in the divorce - I kept property and money I thought I was going to lose. Thank you, Lauren!
I am so happy that I picked Lauren to be my attorney for my custody case. She always answered all my questions, even if I called or emailed her on the weekend, because I was so nervous about possibly losing my daughter. She told me what to expect, and we went to court and won my case on the first court date! The judge sided with us and my ex-husband dropped his case. She was awesome in court, very aggressive and was always very honest with me. I didn't have a lot of money and she still helped me. 5 stars.
First consultation that was scheduled, She never showed up. Her assistant came an hour after the initial appointment time. Got charged full price. Gave her all necessary information on my case. Lauren seemed very nice & led me to believe everything would have a happy ending, so I felt comfortable & allowed her to work my case. I was told not to worry about anything.
When the court date came & our case was called, she put me on the stand to be interrogated. I went in there VERY unprepared & unaware that this was going to take place. I looked like a fool not knowing what questions would be asked & how to answer them. (I feel she should have prepared me for the unexpected). I left the court room so upset & disappointed with her work. Still, she assured me she could take care of it.
She was good about answering/calling back, when I had questions. Then I found out she was charging 250$ for EVERY phone call. 70$ for any call less than 5 min. READ HER CONTRACT BEFORE YOU SIGN ANYTHING!!!! Any motions or final orders she does for you, make sure you read through them as well. She's not worried about what the clients wants or needs unless you request them. Only the whatever is easiest. I strongly suggest spending an extra 1,000$ to provide yourself with an attorney that will look out for your best interest.
Lauren was my bankruptcy attorney. It was a difficult time as I had been laid off, divorced a few years earlier and was about at the end of my rope. Lauren was a true breath of fresh air and I couldn't have been happier with the job she or her firm did for me. I'll never forget, while waiting to be called during my court time, the judge has chastised two separate attorneys for not having the correct forms completed or that they were unprepared. When it was my turn, Lauren took control and even though nothing was said, I could tell that the judge was impressed by Lauren's professionalism. It was a cake walk for me as it turned out and I was so happy with the results... and you will be too.
Lauren made us feel comfortable about having to file bankruptcy. She explained all of our options to us, and was very effective in her representation of us. One of our creditors filed something in our case trying to take our car, and Lauren fought the creditor in court and won! She is very nice, but tough when needed.
Lauren was so helpful throughout our case! We had a very complicated bankruptcy and were very nervous. Lauren was so nice and understanding! She kept us informed every step of the way and handled our case so well that we have referred her family and friends. She is highly recommended!
