I interviewed several attorneys and I chose Lauren because I felt she was confident, competent, and had the experience I was looking for. I consulted with Lauren several times before beginning the divorce process. Each time she was happy to discuss the facts and the process without pressuring me to make a decision. Divorce is a very delicate and difficult decision. It was important for me to be informed but not pressured. Lauren was great at accomplishing this. Once I made my decision Lauren was great at helping me move through the process. We discussed various approaches and I was able to make informed decisions on each aspect of my divorce. There was even one particular instance where we had a miscommunication and she was great about fixing it and clarifying what I wanted. Another important aspect of working with an attorney is billing. I like to feel that I am being treated fairly and not being overcharged. I felt that both Lauren and Vanessa(her legal aid) were extremely efficient and fair in the billing process. I would recommend Lauren to anyone seeking a divorce or family attorney.
After interviewing numerous attorneys to handle my divorce, I couldn't help but be put off by how "routine" it was for them. That was NOT the case with Lauren Waddell. She listened. She understood I needed someone to not only guide me through this process, but also someone to protect my interest and those of my daughters.
That is exactly what I found in Lauren. She never encouraged me to engage in unethical behavior as others before her had. Nor did she back down when opposing counsel chose such a path. She is fierce in her resolve to do all in her power on behalf of her clients.
I will forever be grateful...she gave me closure. And in the process, a new beginning.
