Laura Weight is hands-down the best collaborative divorce lawyer in the region. During a difficult and protracted divorce, spanning several years, she was consistently thoughtful, professional, and most of all, effective. Since our first meeting, I have appreciated her calm demeanor and exceptional competence. Through the entire process, it was clear not only that I had an excellent lawyer, but that I had the best lawyer for me and for this situation. It’s telling that my ex also knew I had the better lawyer; this fact was crucial in helping the divorce proceed because all parties would defer to Laura's expertise in legal matters. I also appreciated that Laura was sensitive to the emotions in the proceedings, working with and through them in order to keep things progressing. She was always patient and willing to listen and act on my concerns, while still giving honest appraisals of when we (or I) needed to push or back off a given topic of contention.
Divorce was one of the hardest experiences of my life. I do not exaggerate when I say that I would be in much worse shape now if I hadn’t had Laura as my lawyer. I would recommend her with absolutely no reservations to anyone needing a superb collaborative divorce lawyer. She was, and is, remarkable!

Mrs. Weight assisted me in obtaining sole custody of my son. It was a pleasure to work with her. She was friendly, supportive, and highly capable. Everything was handled very efficiently, and the case progressed in a timely manner. I highly recommend her!

I have had the good fortune to work with Laura as she took
me through a long, messy divorce that began in 2007.
She was always straight forward; asking for my input as she
presented various options in ways I could clearly understand.
Laura was/is ethical, honest and willing to do what the case
called for at any given time. Her patience with me when I needed
"hand holding" was outstanding. She took time to work things
through, making sure she was ready for whatever may come up
before the judge or my ex-husband's attorney. Everything was
given to me for review before it left her office. Saying I highly
recommend Laura barely covers the strength of her demeanor
and professionalism through out.

As a father with two children going through a high-conflict divorce my only concern was doing what was best for the kids and protecting them from harm. My case was so difficult that Laura was my 3rd in a several year conflict. Hiring Laura was the best decision I ever made. She was professional, compassionate, and very thorough. When we went in front of a judge, she knew her stuff, and more importantly, she understood the situation and made sure the courts had all the important information to make a sound decison. Thanks to Laura, my kids were protected and today are happy and thriving. Thank you Laura!
