Laurel is a consummate professional. We had engaged her services to represent us for the sale of our longtime family home and again for the purchase of a new home. Laurel was always quick to return a phone call, send e-mail messages and coordinate all phases of the transaction. With a keen eye for detail, Laurel prepared all the necessary documents and explained the process along the way. Selling and buying a home is an inherently emotional and stressful process but Laurel seemed to take all of that in stride. We are grateful to have had the right attorney navigating us to a glitch-free closing day. Thank You Laurel.

Laurel helped my business partner and me draft an operating agreement for our LLC. It's important to get a new business off to good start and Laurel really helped. She is professional, courteous and offered us great, practical advice! Thank you, Laurel !

We hired Laurel to represent us in P&S review in our single family home purchase. She did a fine job with standard P&S review, however didn't give us the full market picture that a qualified legal representative is expected to provide. FACT: In MA state most closing attorneys do P&S review for free as part of closing the sale and dual representation (lender and borrower) by the same attorney is allowed. However, Laurel made us believe that P&S review is typically not done by closing attorneys and is a separate undertaking. This resulted in additional P&S review charges for us in addition to closing attorney charges in the end. As a compromise we asked Laurel to be our closing attorney to avoid duplication of services and costs but she refused. The reason being she doesn't work for one of the top three mortgage lenders in the country that we were lending from ! She recommended her colleague to us, but it turned out that the colleague didn't have the closing experience we were looking for. In the end we had to pay double of what a typical closing attorneys costs would be for a transaction. I would not recommend her given that her industry knowledge doesn't seem up-to-date. Try to find lawyers who would have done multiple closings for lender you are working with in the area you live in
