5.0 stars 26 totalReview Eric Lafleur
I consulted with Mr. LaFleur regarding a few different matters, each of which were challenging and quite difficult for me. He went above and beyond any expectations I had and provided me with his perspective and legal expertise on each issue that concerned me. He responded to emails promptly and all of his answers were well thought out and full of ideas and options I hadn't considered. To top it off, he refused to charge me, allowing me to have more than one free consultation. Try and find an attorney who does that. Since that time, I have referred several others to him - all of which have come back pleased and confident in the plan of action he recommended for them. He is truly passionate about what he does and it is reflected in his dedicated work ethic, loyalty and strategic thinking on behalf of his clients, and in the professional way he conducts his practice. Without reservation, I refer him to anyone looking for an excellent family law attorney.
Mr. Lafleur's courtroom maneuvers or lack thereof cost me many thousands of dollars above and beyond his attorneys fees.
Time and money are the lifeblood of a court case. My initial court appointment was a disappointment, resulting in me owing thousands of dollars each month to my ex while the final court date was pending. My case went on for months, while I experienced no urgency, strategy, of motivation, from Mr. Lafleur's office. I regularly reached out to Mr. Lafleur trying to keep things moving - but found Mr. Lafleur not motivated to any degree near what I would have expected from a legal advisor or advocate. He filed papers, but provided no strategy, advice, or support.
When I brought my concerns to him and his staff I was treated with hostility and as an adversary. Several conversations provided no improvement, and ultimately Mr. Lafleur requested to be excused from my case, which was his best maneuver.
I hired a second attorney shortly after Mr. Lafleur resigned. He took my case with vigor, and we proceeded to get a victory with custody and child support.
After consulting many lawyers, I met with Eric. He stood out from the rest - he was compassionate and patient, and he took the time to explain things my emotional brain just couldn't grasp. He put up with numerous phone calls and emails, checking and double checking my case whenever I asked. He helped make an emotionally trying time easier for me to bear.
After researching multiple lawyers for my case I went with Eric, who was recommend to me. Mr LaFleur represented me on a custody case and I couldn't have been more pleased with his services and advise. The opposing party was rather difficult to deal with and many times he was able to avoid an escalation. Aside from returning e-mails and calls in a reasonable time frame. Many times I was able to reach him after hours for ad hoc situations. He provided a very personable service and truly cared about me as a client. I did not have to deal with multiple assistants or paralegals and get charged an arm and a leg either. I would recommend Eric to anyone who needs a knowledgeable yet compassionate lawyer who not only has your and your child(ren)'s best interests at heart, but also is the voice of reason and reminds you what would be best long term in an emotional situation. Overall a lawyer who is one in a million.

Eric was a pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable about the law refarding my case. He listened to me, and returned every phone call and email. He ended up getting my charges dropped. Eric has earned a client for life with me & my company.
Thanks again Eric for all of your help!

As I was preparing for a messy custody dispute, I contacted Mr. LaFleur for a consultation. He was able to see me right away and put me at easy about my situation. I spoke with several other attorneys previously. Because I was wanting to modify an existing custody agreement that was finalized less than a year ago, they were not real encouraging about my odds of winning. While Mr. LeFleur never made me any guarantees, he was encouraging that I had a strong case. He helped me compile strong evidence and put me at easy during this very emotional and stressful period. I always felt that he had mine and my daughter’s interest in mind, not trying to rack up an enormous bill every second we spoke, like other attorneys I have dealt with.
On the day of the trial I believe he made a well-educated argument and presented well in court. We ultimately won the case and I received everything I had ask for. I could not be happier! Any custody dispute is going to be long and stressful, but I am so thankful that my daughter is in a much better situation now, thanks to the assistance of Mr. LaFleur. I couldn’t be happier! Though I do not wish this situation on anyone. If you ever find yourself in a divorce or custody dispute, I would absolutely recommend Mr. LeFleur.

After interviewing several attorneys in my area I meet with Mr Eric Lafleur.
I needed someone who was dependable, flexible, and efficient- Mr Lafleur meet all of these qualities. He goes the extra mile, he stayed late to meet with me for the initial meeting, responded to emails promptly before and after normal working hours. He asked the right questions and made sure I had all the information necessary to make an informed decision. I would definitely use Mr Lafleur again.

Over the past couple of years, Eric has provided a range of legal services for me and my family. From child custody, divorce, and criminal defense to also helping us through an investigation with Child Protective Services. Eric has been with us through it all and has successfully managed to get us the best possible outcome given our situation. Eric thinks through all the possible scenarios and excels at explaining the options and setting realistic expectations. It’s apparent his past experience working on the “other side” helps him to be one step ahead at all times.
What’s also great about Eric, is that it seems as though he is always “connected”. You can rest assured that if you send him an e-mail, text, or voicemail, he will get back to you. We've contacted him late night on a couple of occasions thinking we wouldn't hear from him until the next day only to receive a well thought out e-mail that same night.
From a cost perspective, I can’t imagine anyone more reasonable than Eric. He works hard for every dollar you spend and was willing to work with us on a payment plan if necessary.
Eric is definitely a blessing. Sometimes life doesn't go according to plan, it’s good to have someone like Eric in our corner when that happens.

As a father fighting for custody of my 9 year old I knew I was facing an uphill battle. Fortunately for me and my son, I was able to hire Eric to help with this fight. Eric's knowledge and understanding of the law and what I was going through was huge. His naturally calm demeanor really helped settle me down on the numerous occasions when I would get nervous, or start to freak out. As good as he was with all of the preliminary work; he really came through in court. His preparedness, knowledge of the situation, and familiarity with the key players and our history really showed. I firmly believe the decision to work with Eric on this is the reason I was able to win primary custody of my son. It was the best decision I could have made.
