i hired lauren to represent me in a severe dui case. she was the most informed attorney out of 5 law firms that i found and was very confident in herself and what she was able to do for my case . i am very happy with the sentence that she was able to get and how she kept me informed of the process between the courts and all other parties involved in this case . i highly recommend her to anyone that has to go through a dui case .

Lauren represented me on two separate DUI cases over the past 5 years. The first case we did a deferred prosecution and all was well, but then I screwed up and got another one a few years later. Unfortunately judges don't take too kindly to multiple offenders and I was facing jail time. Lauren was able to get me in the work release program for a short time so I could keep my job. She and her case managers and receptionists were always responsive and worked hard to ensure that everything was working out for me. She replies to texts, emails, and phone calls at all hours of the day and night. And she also seems to have a good relationship with the prosecutors and judges, which is a huge plus.
One more thing.. I can honestly attest first hand from being in and out of courtrooms with Lauren, that public defenders around here are overbooked and do not have a lot of time. I am sure they're all good people, but I doubt you would be getting a call back from them anytime soon if you have questions about your case. Just something to keep in mind.

this was my first DUI incident & i had no idea what to do. i knew i couldnt get through this without legal advice. my friend heard an ad for 1800 DUI away on the radio & told me to call. after calling i was presented with Lauren, who made me feel comfortable with the situation as soon as we discussed it. i knew she was there to help me, and any time i ever had questions she was always there to answer me. i would highly reccomend her to anyone who needs a dependant lawyer or legal advice. there were a couple times i had court where she wasnt present because she had other court cases that conflicted, but there was always someone there to represent her who studied my case; so i never felt alone. my case lasted almost a year and she stood by my side the whole time. i am very grateful she was able to represent me and i appreciate everything she did for me. my case was dismissed and i truly owe it to her.

Lauren is an absolute miracle worker! She is the best attorney I have had! I believe Lauren went above and beyond her contract with me she worked very hard and long on my case and really put in work for me! I would definitely refer her to anybody that needed an attorney and I would hire her again if needed!

Lauren Gotchy was assigned to my case. As the case dragged on, Lauren kept telling me that good progress was being made and that we had a very strong case. But when the time came to get ready for trial, I discovered that she had not added a single thing to my file and barely even knew how to say my last name. I met with her and Bradley, and after shelling out over $5000, they told me I would need to pay another $12000 up front in order for them to continue (continue doing nothing on my case).
Bottom line: DO NOT USE THIS LAW FIRM, THEY ARE WORSE THAN BAD.

I have hired Lauren on two occasions which were complicated as the second violated the terms and conditions of the first one. Her professionalism and knowledge made the process easier for me to handle. I was well informed about the cases' status, the strategy and the outcomes. Lauren always replied to my emails and returned my calls promptly. Lauren did a very good job on my first case and got a plea deal for a reduced charge that was in favor to me. The second case is still in process.
Thank you for all of you help over the last year. I greatly appreciate the extra efforts that you made without extra compensation.
I am more than pleased with Lauren's services and would recommend her to my family and friends.

I was represented by Ms. Gotchy and felt that she was honest and forthright about the outcome of my case from the beginning. As an out of state defendant it was very important for me to reach a plea agreement in a fastidious manner and she helped me to do just that. She also was persistent and persuasive during my pre-trial which resulted in the judge reducing the sentence recommended by the District Attorney. Overall, I could not recommend Ms. Gotchy any higher. Additionally, I also want to add that I am grateful for her guidance and want to acknowledge the incredible job that she put forth on my behalf.

Lauren provided answers to all of my questions. She never got my hopes up prematurely and always set the correct expectations. She replied to my voicemails and emails within 24 hours or less and often times after business hours. And most importantly, she got my case dismissed! I couldn't have asked for a better outcome.

Lauren is unlike any other lawyer I have ever met. She is young, bright, cheerful and warm. I came in at rock bottom, she was honest with me and really helped to calm my nerves and immediately after I left her office she started to work on my case. Even after my case, I continue to have questions and as I wrote her today, I appreciated her time and effort even after my case despite my economical situation and lack of ethical choices in my past. She is willing to work with you, ensuring your comfort throughout the entire process. I will continue to keep in contact with her and will make sure to refer everyone who needs a helping hand to her. I would look no further than Lauren, she is unlike any other and is definitely the next generation of great lawyers.

Lauren handle my 2nd arrest for DUI. I came to her feeling very frustrated and misunderstood. My previous case for my 1st DUI had been lowered to a Reckless but my previous lawyer had failed to communicate with me on what limitations I had, and here I was again with another arrest for DUI. Yes its my fault for putting myself in that position, but if I had known what I needed to know about the first case, I wouldn't of made that bad decision once again.
Lauren was completely different from all the other lawyers right away when I interviewed her. She was really reassuring like she really cared about my issue, and seemed very knowledgeable with the questions I had for her. So I hired her.
We went to court several times over the 9 month period before my case got a verdict. If I ever felt uneasy she right away like a friend was there to support me and help me feel okay about things. I know she actually cares about her clients.
She first got my DOL hearing completely dismissed, which was awesome because first time around that wasn't the case, so I didn't think I had a chance at winning that hearing.
5 months later the big day came and I knew she was ready, saw she had several questions, notes and was very organized. As always she was very respectful and informative at the court when she presented the motion for my dismissal.
2 weeks later we got the judges response, and my case was COMPLETELY DISMISSED!! No jail, fine, probation, or revocation of license, I was free woman! Honestly with this being my 2nd arrest I did not think I had that much of a chance of winning but Lauren worked hard for me and made what seemed impossible, possible!
It has been only 2 weeks since then and I've gotten so much more done with my life now that I'm not stressed out about my case anymore. Thanks to Lauren, I know this year is going to be a good one for me :) I feel so much more positive about my life and the fact that I can move on, I'm so happy. It's amazing how much more you can do with your life when your not stressed out!
Thank you Lauren for all your hard work, so many good things to say about you. Don't hesitate to hire this outstanding lawyer!
