  • James Whittingham Spencer

    I have worked with Lori on a number of prenuptial agreements, and I have found her to be an extremely competent and compassionate advocate for her clients. I'd hire her in a moment to protect my rights and help me and a prospective spouse or partner achieve a fair and equitable agreement.
