I had 2 other attorneys on my case prior. Alexandra quickly got up to speed, has a rapport with Los Angeles Judges, listens well and is perceptive. Mid-sentence she’ll know what you’re babbling on about. She knows family law inside and out, understood my desires as a father and diplomatically laid out possible options/outcomes/remedies. Alexandra’s keen knowledge of family law objected the opposing side’s baseless accusations and filed an Objection to strike all pages that exceeded the legal Response Declaration page limit too.
On the day of the hearing Alexandra greeted me off the elevator and was right by my side; which means the world to a person about to hear their kid’s future. Alexandra even got me an agreement to a “meet and greet” with the other man my son calls dad, before we even walked into the court room! During the hearing I thought things weren’t going in my favor, Alexandra calmed me, whispering “You okay”? “Don’t worry”. The judge ultimately ordered joint legal custody and exactly equal parenting time.
If you don’t give up on your kid(s), hire the right representation (Alexandra) you can go from being an every other weekend Dad to having your kids equally! I walked out of the court room hugged my wife and then Alexandra unexpectedly hugged us both. We won! I will never again go through any custody matter without Alexandra by my side.
If you are a Dad/Parent up against the wall and limited by your court order do your kid(s) a favor and hire Alexandra!
Words can not express what am amazing job Ms. Lavinsky did on my divorce. My ex- husband is a lawyer and I was very terrified about the legal process in California. So, during the most difficult time in my life, I had the great fortune to have this incredible, client advocate representing me. Ms. Lavinsky knows the law inside out and was true warrior in my legal battle. I put my trust in Ms. Lavinsky with my future and she NEVER let me down.
Ms. Lavinsky is my hero and I highly recommend her to any person who is in need of council. She is a legal genius and is a credit to her profession. God bless her!
Had my free consultation today and it was one of the best experiences with a lawyer I have ever had. Alexandra was very helpful and even gave me some good information to take home. Her staff was extremely nice and the entire time I was there I felt important. She really cares and looks out for your best interests not to mention has a lot of experience in family law. Highly recommended if you are looking for the best!
Alexandra Lavinsky is amazing. I highly recommend her. She stayed close by my side throughout a very difficult divorce where my spouse was hiding assets and playing the deadbeat game. She was amazing and was able to win at trial (5 day long-cause trial) on every aspect. She is fierce and a very strong woman and can handle anything. She is extremely efficient and won't waste your time or money. With two small children and my life in her hands, she was able to get me more than what I expected at trial. She is hands down the best attorney.
fool to enter, promise , then never have any response. Charge every minute even text small message. Bill every second, no phone call response. Too busy after correct retaintion.
Not doing what she said she can do.
I want to thank you all so very much for everything. I know Lavinsky Law deals with countless divorces and family law cases, however I never felt like just another client. It's hard enough going through a major life event such as a divorce, even more difficult when children are involved. I felt safe and secure knowing I had you all in my corner. Alexandra, your contact info will definitely remain with me as I will pass it on to anyone who could use your services. Again, thank you all...I'm finally smiling again.
I have experienced a number of issues in regard to my divorce, most of which I have tried to manage on my own. The most recent issue though (responsibility & process for removal of a lien after settlement of debt after divorce), was beyond me, as the court provided no guidance, and I could not find a clear answer online. I found Alexandra through Avvo and sent an e-mail. Wanda, her paralegal, responded to me in about 30 minutes (!), and was incredibly helpful and friendly in setting things up and keeping me informed. As I only needed a specific question answered, a short phone consult was arranged. Just 48 hours after locating Alexandra on Avvo, I was on the phone with her. I reviewed my situation and asked my question, and she had an immediate answer and guidance. Alexandra listens very well (a rare quality), so even if one doesn't frame the situation perfectly, she can distill the essence immediately and accurately. She has obvious command of the law and process, as her answer was definite and crystal clear. I really appreciate that she saw where I was coming from and respected that. Alexandra is down to earth, to the point, and comes across not only as a seasoned professional, but as a balanced and decent human being. I highly recommend her.
navigating family law was very much different than all my years dealing with business law and Alexandra gave me such a sense of security with knowing her expertise and vast knowledge could handle a messy divorce.
Alexandra fixed my hectic custody schedule, I was terrified of my ex and his attorney but as soon as I met with Alexandra and her staff I felt like I wasn't alone anymore. I would never go back to court without her(if I had ever had too). Alexandra and her staff were there for me emotion and legally. No need to look any farther, I wouldn't recommend anyone else but Alexandra
Alexandra is a highly capable family law attorney that helped me settle my divorce case in expedient manner. She is very professional and knowledgeable in all facets of family law. Her demeanor with the other side was fierce and uncompromising, something you would definitely want on your side.
