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.
Alexandra's office put me at ease instantly in what was a very uneasy situation. Extremely knowledgeable in her field as well as knowing the legal landscape of Los Angeles to a T. Alexandra was very generous with her time and at no point did I feel rushed or pressured. If you need a lawyer this your lady.
I highly recommend Ms. Lavinsky as she displayed honesty, sincerity, and strength. After interviewing three attorneys she was the only one that treated me like a person and not a client. By this I mean she genuinely cared about me and what I was going through. She offered great advice in the event I was unable to hire her and didn't "scare" me into needing an attorney like the others did. I highly recommend Alexandra Lavinsky.
I came to Alexandra in hopes of changing attorneys in my child custody case. I was at a loss for words when she welcomed me in her office with such warmth and positive attitude. Alexandra was able to take over what I call a broken case and waive her knowledge and her superior understanding of Family Law. Alexandra rationalizes problems and approaches each situation with confidence. During our many court sessions, Alexandra made me feel like I had an entire football team behind me. She exudes poise and I would recommend her any day of the week. Her office associates also exemplify her characteristics which says a lot about her qualities. Even though my case is not finalized, I know that with Alexandra behind me, the result will be what is in the best interest of my son.
After four years and many delays (and $69,000.00 in fees) on my family law case with my previous lawyer, I decided to change my attorney. Alexandra came highly recommended from top notch forensic accountant Patrick Green. Hiring her was the best decision I could have possibly made. Within a single meeting with my ex we were able to settle the case. Alexandra is intelligent, assertive and wants to win without picking your pocket. My only wish is that I found her earlier. I highly recommend her.
I wanted to represent myself for my divorce for financial reasons but had no idea how to go about the process. I learned that finding an attorney to help me on limited scope basis would be beneficial for a positive outcome. After contacting several attorneys to discuss advising me on how to go about the divorce process, I found out quickly that most wanted large retainers or costly consultation fees to even begin to help me. Fortunately for me, Alexandra was referred by a friend. After contacting Alexandra and explaining my situation, she invited me to come in for a consultation at which time she listened to my concerns and advised me on how to proceed with the divorce. She really made me feel at ease and offered the advice I so desperately needed at the time. Alexandra also informed me that I did not need to retain her and that I could do this on my own and if questions arose along the way, she could answer them for me.
All I can say is that after leaving her office, I felt very relieved and confident that I could do this on my own.
My divorce is now final and thanks to Alexandra’s advice, the outcome was positive and I was able to do so without putting myself in severe debt and I can now move forward with my life.
I would encourage anyone needing a family law attorney to get in touch with Alexandra, you will be glad you did.
I came to Alexandra with a child support case, she was able to modify my order. She had a lot of knowledge and strategy on how to proceed with the best outcome. I am very satisfied with her work and will definitely recommend her to anyone with a family law case. Thank you for all your help.
