Posted by a Child Custody client
I'm truly amazed and disappointed after reading so many good reviews of Ms.Laird. This was not my experience. It has been 7 months with no contact from Ms. Laird, no email, no phone call...nothing.
She was hired in 2012 to help with custody of a then 15 year old, now 17. Nothing has ever been filed with the courts. We heard a lovely song and dance about how she was involved with a high profile case involving a judge and that it was taking up all of her time.
Her ever changing staff that answer the phone do the best they can, but there have been quite a few to come and go and I can only assume that it is due to having angry clients call and be angry with them because of no response from Ms. Laird.

We where introduced to Lori from another attorney that was unable to handle the case due to her own case load... Thank god she did! Lori was on track from the very start. We presented her with the evidence we had collected, 3000 to 4000 Facebook and Twitter entries and photos. She battled with the amicus, once she discovered the amicus took the side of the druggy mother, requested the custody be presented to a jury. Lori kept us involved through the whole process prior to trial. Lori even invited us into her home for trial prep. Her husband informed us that we where the 1st of her cliants that has ever been in their home. When we finally went to court, she battled 3 opposing attorneys. The trial went 7 days, they had the stand for 5 1/2 days and we had it 1 1/2 days. In closing arguments, a juror even applauded. It took the, jury consisting of 6 men and 6 women less than 1 hour to come back with a unanimous verdict in favor of placing my grand daughter in my sons custody giving him 100% geographical rights. My grand daughter now lives with us in Pennsylvania and is happy and healthy. I don't know what the outcome would have been without Lori's help. Not only is Lori the best damn attorney in Texas, she has become a life long family friend! Shake and Bake baby!

I had a criminal case where I was charged with fraud for prescription medication. Ms. Laird completely understood everything that had occurred and was able to get me through a very difficult time in my life while completely mitigating the effects of these charges against me. I was so surprised by the level of her investigation and her ability to persuade the district attorneys office to cooperate and work with her and me. I couldn't have had a better defense attorney. I highly recommend her for any criminal case- she is awesome.

I hired Lori Laird to handle a divorce case for me. It was a complicated case with large property division and children. My husband was involved in an adulterous affair with a co-worker. Weeks after I filed for divorce I found out I had cancer. It was a very difficult, emotionally devastating, and rough time for me. Lori not only fought aggressively to assure my financial, emotional and physical safety, she also was compassionate and caring and truly was concerned about my health and well being. Lori got me everything I wanted in my case and even some things I didn't even know I would need. I highly recommend her if you ever need an attorney. She will give it her all for you. She was my guardian angel and my warrior in my darkest time of need.

Lori is one of the best attorneys I have ever run across and I work in a Family Law firm. My boyfriend and I hired her for his divorce/child custody case in which he wanted primary of his twin boys. She was on the case for one year and took it to a 4 week jury trial (more progress than we had gotten in about 3 years) and got us the results we wanted. She is an amazing, powerful, aggressive attorney that gives it to you straight and doesn't mess around with her opposing counsel's games. She is extremely knowledgeable in many areas and was the absolute best attorney we could have ever had on our case.
If you want an attorney that will fight for you, you want Lori. She is professional, extremely capable, responsive, and fearless. I will go to Lori for all of my family law needs in the future as will everyone else I know. We are SO THANKFUL that we were referred to Lori. We could not have been happier.

Truely Amazing!!! Ended up going to trial in regards to a custody battle and we ended up getting more than what we asked for!! Lori was always available to help and answer questions whenever I needed her. She was comforting and really made such a difficult time easier. During trial she was a firecracker and we won!!!

Lori Elaine Laird is the perfect attorney to handle family and divorce law. She is very astute in her field, and has the presence of mind to be gentle when needed and aggressive when important. I give my personal recommendation of her service in divorce cases. She is a life saver for her clients. She works in such an efficient manner that I found the divorce to be a totally painless experience. Anyone can feel confident that Lori Laird will be the best client advocate that one can employ, and I give her the very highest of recommendations.

I had a very nasty divorce case. My ex husband was abusive and left me for another woman. I hired an attorney who was not helping me and my ex decided he would challenge me for custody of our daughter. Everything went downhill and my lawyer wasn't good enough to help me. Then I found Lori. Everything changed after she got on my case.
I was very blessed to have Lori Laird for my attorney. She took control of everything. She even took control of me when I was "losing it" and gave me tough but good advice. We had a week long jury trial in Brazoria County. My husband's attorney tried hard to make me look bad. But Lori came to my rescue and set everything right. I not only got custody of my daughter but also got all of the property I was requesting. Lori really knows what she is doing. I recommend her to anyone who ever asks me for an attorney recommendation.

I was arrested for a felony DWI. This was a very difficult case as I had recently started taking some new prescription medication. The District attorney would not budge on the charges. Lori had to set this case for trial. She prepared better than any television attorney I have every seen. As the jury as being brought in the district attorney looked at Lori's table covered with files and books and said, "geez, you are really prepared for this trial, aren't you?" Lori looked up and smiled and said, "bring it on." The DA walked away and before the jury sat down the district attorney dismissed the case. She is simply awesome.

From our first meeting I knew I had the right attorney. She set me at ease , answered all my many questions and continually assured me that she was fighting for me. That was exactly what I needed! Lori is very knowledgeable of the law and creates a powerful presence in the courtroom. She has a passion for justice and truly cares about her clients. I highly recommend Lori - you will be stronger with her on your side!
