I have been with 5 lawyers since my divorce in 2000, before this time I have never seen a lawyer in my life. 1st lawyer I think was working for my ex.
2nd lawyer - I was audited by the IRS because the 1st lawyer had omitted to put a paragraph in the divorce papers. 2nd lawyer said 'easy fix', but after waiting for nearly a year and nothing happening, I fired that one.
3rd lawyer hired to take over and after a lot of $$ and time the issue was corrected. I did come out of it knowing more about the lawyers personal life than they did of mine.
4th lawyer was hired as I am reaching retirement age and wanted to end alimony payments. In the end they let me go as they were not familiar with the judges and lawyers in my county...BUT they recommended Lauren Saucy.
The first thing I noticed about Lauren is she listened to what I was saying and kept things on track. She didn't sugar coat anything. She stated the facts, the way things could go good or bad. In other words told me the truth. I respect that in people. Lauren wrote a strong letter to my ex, based on facts and truth of the situation. She explained exactly how things would go even if I had to go to court. The ex agreed and signed off on the alimony payments and I am a free man. I can go on now and live out the rest of my life without this issue hanging over me. Thank you Lauren. As this all happened so fast I didn't get a chance to thank her in person. So I plan one more visit to her office because I want to thank her in person. I feel I owe this to her.

I worked with Paul Saucy on my divorce. As my case ended up needing to go to trial, his legal partner, Lauren Saucy, spoke with me at length as she reviewed my documents and prepared data for the trial. She quickly sensed the details of my case, and mastered the intricacies of my financial records and multitude of data. She was supportive and walked me through the lineup of trial events to expect, so that, when I did go to court, I felt as comfortable as I could have. I understand that her attention to detail is critical so that there would be little, if anything, for the opposing side to claim on appeal. Lauren's expertise meant that our exhibits at trial were clear and pertinent, and that was critical in telling my story, and in the satisfying outcome.

I approched Lauren Sauscy to help me find a parenting place that would hold up in court with my work schedule. From start to finsh Lauren was in my side placing options infront of myself and took time to explain the why. Lauren would keep me informed of everything happening and why. She also took time to help me understand the ruels of oregons parenting plans and also informing me of the ruels that my ex would have to uphold to. Lauren is type A person she dosent just sit back to see what the out come will be. she is very proactive Lawyer with a skilled team. My personal opition is you are only as good as your team. Lauren Saucy has a very strong team and they work together very well. One thing I will note about Lauren is how upfront she is going to be. she will tell you how it is and how it needed to be. If you follow her plan to a tee you will be prepared on your day in court. Thankfully I never made it to court, her skills were such that we were able to come up with a win for everyone involved. If you are looking to be treated fair and have an out come than Lauren will do more for you as a Lawyer than 10 of them combinded. All I can say you will get what you pay for. On that Note Lauren dosent miss use you funds she is about staying on budget and will only spend what she has to.
Thanks for read this review.

I don't know what I would have done without Lauren. I quickly felt comfortable with her, and knew I could trust her. Going into the divorce situation I knew nothing of the process, Lauren quickly put me at ease and from the very beginning I knew she was my advocate.

Lauren became my lawyer only a few weeks before I was set to go to court with my ex-husband. My first attorney had made some egregious errors that made my case a bit more difficult and caused my ex-husband to be very hostile. Despite this, Lauren immediately took control of my case and put in the time and effort that allowed me to obtain full custody as well as the new parenting agreement I was seeking from the judge.
Having Lauren by my side allowed me to put the anxiety about my case aside and concentrate on my goals and what was best for my children. I am not sure my case would have obtained the outcome it had without her! Even several months later, she is available for questions and guidance. If I had to do it all over again – I would have called Lauren from the start!

Two years ago, I contemplated getting married without a prenuptial agreement. I thought marriage would be fine without it. After reviewing my situation, it was at Lauren's insistence that a prenuptial agreement be written. I am grateful for what she did as it saved my future. She was also my divorce attorney. Her recommendations and options were crucial in a successful divorce process. She was professional but candid, knowledgeable and communicated well. I would highly recommend Lauren as your attorney.

Lauren Saucy went to bat for me, like no other attorney I have ever seen. She was compassionate, caring, informative, and did an awesome job, where my spouse and her attorney were unresponsive, and belated in their replies to matters that needed to be addressed. She did an excellent job of explaining the way the court looks at the assets and liabilities. I, who practice law, in a totally different area, would recommend her to anyone who needs help in a domestic relations case. Her staff is excellent, and Lauren intervened, on my behalf, at many critical times.

Lauren represented me in my divorce (22 years and 4 children). Every two years since that time I have been taken back to court by my ex-wife and I have utilized the legal services of Lauren. She is straightforward and honest. Lauren knows what to anticipate and how things will play out in the “big picture,” even when I thought things would turn out differently. Lauren is a person of integrity and extremely knowledgeable. There were times when I was planning to pay her for her services and she advised me to proceed on my own. "You can do this on your own, or you can pay me a pile of money to do it and have the same results” she would say. Not what I would expect to hear from a lawyer. Lauren cares about her clients. Even when she is not actually representing me she knows what is coming up on the calendar. She has called me to see how hearings went. Lauren is our “go-to” person and I highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy lawyer to represent them in court, or seek legal advice.

Lauren represented me during my divorce. My case involved the dissolution of an 18 year marriage with children as well as a military retirement and current self employment. One of the things that I most appreciated about Lauren was her willingness to let me go through the divorce steps at a pace I was comfortable with-she never pushed. She ensured I was informed and aware of complications that may arise if I pursued a certain direction. I felt empowered in the process that I was making the right decisions for my future as well as my children's. Lauren's follow-up and follow-through were outstanding. Lauren also brings a unique "compassion with realism" approach that I found very helpful when there is so much chaos and you are unsure which direction is up. Just knowing there is a plan and this is how we are going to approach this (one step at a time) is helpful in alleviating some of the stress. I would absolutely make a referral to Lauren. In fact, I have already done so.

Lauren represented my husband and me in obtaining rights to spend time with our granddaughter who was very much in need of us at the time and still is today. We were impressed from the begining with Lauren"s honesty, her knowledge of the law, her straight forward and practical advidse, and her ethical and responsible behavior. Not only did she get us rights to spend time with our granddaughter even when she told us and we knew that the law was against us, but she also did more than help us through the legal process, she made clear to us what would really happen to our granddaughter at the time and in the future, and our best ways to establish and maintain a good relationship with her that has allowed our little girl the opportuniaaty to grow and learn things that she never would have had without her grandparents and aunt being allowed to continue on as a part of her life. There is no price we could pay Lauren for the ways she has helped us and our granddaughter, as the young girl our granddaughter has grown into today is priceless.
