I followed Laurie when she started her own firm also, she took my case on a cash up front contract. After less than favorable results in a support order case, we opted to appeal which was never followed through with by Laurie. She told me numerous mis-truths about things she was taking care of which in doing my own work was able to support that she in fact had not. In the end she never filed my parenting plan and when questioned about the status of my appeal she replied "I will no longer be representing you". To date Laurie will not return my calls or sit down to turn my file over to me or discuss the matter of the money that was paid up front for her representation. I trusted Laurie and she abused that trust, she took a year of my time and possibly more.
She was available when I needed to ask her questions or would call back as soon as she could. Her prices are very reasonable for what a good lawyer she is. I was very happy with the communication between client/ attorney.
Laurie did a great job. She knew what she was talking about and had everything promptly filed and case dismissed.
Laurie was recommended to me and I very glad she was! She has been outstanding and always fought for me every step of the way and at the same time she was helpful throughout the entire process by explaining everything at every step. She was terrific doing the required research and knowing every single fact involved in my case, and handled all the correspondence like a pro, nice and also heavy when needed with perfect execution and timing.
I was extremely pleased with the outcome and got more then expected, and if I ever have a legal need in the future I will not hesitate to contact Laurie.
Laurie handle my divorce procedures. She had left her firm with only 5 days notice. I gave her the opportunity to start her own firm. My court dates were continued twice..costing me stress and money. I was suppose to be in on the conference call,which Laurie did not follow up on. Had I been in on the conference call,I would have gotten the matter settled. She did not object to the courts stating that documents were not received. I had to reminder her that my ex husband had sent me a threatening text warning me "to be aware of how I would fight this battle." Laurie should have objected to this lie ,as i forwarded the threatening text to her. I did not receive spousal,despite my docuemented multiple sclerosis. Laurie felt it was not fair to the children my ex had when he cheated on me. The ex husband lied about his wife having cancer. Laurie should have stated that my ex was not trustworthy.I found out that his wife does not have cancer. Such a low blow,as I had just experienced the battle my friend fought,but eventually died of throat cancer. I do not recommend Laurie Magan at all,I'm sorry to say because all I got out of this was a drained savings account.
In a parenting plan and child support issue, she attributed comments to me that I did not make, put numbers in the wrong column and did not get court documents in a timely manner. She is nice enough, but she declared courtroom victories that were not real issues. It seemed as though she needed to justify her performance to herself. I would go elsewhere for this type of legal help.
