Best decision - highly recommend
In a difficult divorce case that took 3 years, I was very fortunate to have Lauren as my attorney from start to finish. Our case was especially complicated because of custody and important decisions involving a child with special needs. From the very beginning, she was clear about setting realistic expectations and strategies to resolve issues. She is a skilled attorney and an effective communicator. During the entire process, she listened to my concerns, took them seriously, and addressed them in a timely manner. In addition to being a strong advocate, she is thorough in reviewing documents and organized in her preparations for hearings. She defended me and protected me tirelessly from accusations and intimidations. I am so grateful to have Lauren as my attorney during my divorce process and I can’t thank her enough.

Strategy !!!!
I did not start with Lauren, but I am glad I finished with her!! Lauren set a strategy and laid the ground-work early which allowed me to recoup many assets which my spouse had stolen / dissipated during the marriage of which I had been unaware. She built a foundation that allowed us to chip away at lies that were told about me and our family by the other party who decided to go low while we she went high with facts placed in the proper legal context. There were multiple situations where the opposing side refused to provide information; Lauren would have none of it, and over the course the hearings, gave the judge all the information needed to order the opposing side pay legal fees in three situations. I felt that I had a team on my side, and my role was to listen to Lauren’s counsel and provide her with all the evidence she needed to execute. Lauren’s experience, knowledge, relationships with financial experts she engaged upon on my behalf allowed me to move on to build a future where my life is my own.

Tenacious, Knowledgeable, and Considerate Advocate
Lauren is nothing short of fantastic. I had a complicated situation in which the other party was erratic and not acting in good faith, which took a clear emotional toll on our child. Lauren and her team were heavily invested in helping me counter the other party’s erratic and bad faith behavior, while remaining intently focused on what was in my child’s best interest. This included setting realistic expectations throughout the process, describing trade offs to different options, and being fully supportive while also telling me what I needed to hear, not just what I wanted to hear. Strategically, Lauren consistently outmaneuvered the opposing party, in negotiations with other counsels she was unwavering, and at trial she routinely made opposing counsels look woefully underprepared by comparison. Perhaps the best testament to Lauren’s skill is the fact that the opposing party went through a revolving door of lawyers, while I only needed Lauren and her team to deliver excellent outcomes for both me and my child. If you need a lawyer who will expertly tackle complicated cases, work tirelessly on your behalf, and never lose sight of what is in the best interest of you and your children, I strongly recommend speaking with Lauren and her team. I’m very thankful I had her in my corner, and I can’t recommend her highly enough.

Lauren is wonderful! Highly reommended!
I was very fortunate to have Lauren represent me. She has a serious talent for divorce representation. She negotiated the best possible result and ended up saving me hundreds of thousands of dollars. Lauren defends you and fights for you every step of the way. She is tenacious which is exactly what you want in a divorce attorney. She fights for you every step of the way. She is tireless, relentless, fearless and tough. She is always there for you helping you throughout the entire process. She protects you against the intimidation tactics, lies and general onslaught from opposing counsel. Lauren has an innate talent for writing, communicating and negotiating. Her extraordinary communication skills pursuade the judge to rule in your favor so you get the best possible outcome and she absolutely crushes the opposing counsel in court when it matters most. I felt Lauren truly cared about my case and that she worked tirelessly to get me the best possible result. I couldn't image having a better attorney represent me. Thank you Lauren.

Fierce fighter with a kind and gentle heart
Lauren is highly professional, knowledgeable and skilled. She proactively took actions to help move the case along when the other party was being unresponsive and not cooperating. She has zero hesitation fighting for her client either at the court or in the email exchange with the opposite party. She worked tirelessly on my behalf, seeking the best interest for her client (me) and helping me getting through every stage of the process . Highly recommended without any reservation.

Optimal advocate
Knowing I had Lauren on my side was a tremendous comfort during a stressful divorce. Lauren takes the issues at hand seriously but always maintains a good sense of humor. She’s a skilled communicator who is always sure about the next best steps to take—she is a pro at moving things along. She’s reassuring when you need it and blunt when it’s called for. I got a much better outcome than I’d dared to hope for thanks to Lauren’s tireless advocacy. Working with Lauren and her team was the best decision I could have made and I feel a boundless amount of gratitude for all of her thoughtfulness and hard work.

Amazing legal team
I feel so grateful and fortunate to have worked with Lauren and her team. They were extremely professional and on-point throughout the divorce process and obtained a result to reduce my alimony payments to a small fraction of what I feared could be the outcome. Their expert handling of my case allowed me to move on with life following divorce in ways that would be otherwise impossible. Would recommend without hesitation.

I needed an attorney who would listen to my concerns, produce and execute a clear path to the successful resolution of my modification. Lauren exceeded my expectations. She is a strong, firm, fair and consistent advocate. If you are looking for an attorney to advocate for you in your divorce process, I highly recommend Lauren and her team.

no-nonsense effectiveness
Lauren and her team are excellent. It was challenging for me to raise the retainer, but absolutely worth it (both figuratively and, ultimately, financially). I was frustrated and stressed about the divorce because it was unnecessarily hostile and there was plenty of room for things to get worse, but Lauren brought a non-nonsense approach and secured the best possible outcome for me. She and her staff are responsive, professional, and pro-active. I'm very glad I hired her.

The best decision I made!
The best decision I made when starting my divorce process was hiring Lauren. From the very first meeting, I knew she was very intelligent, fearless and would do everything within her power to fight for me. I was in a state of shock at the beginning of the process, and Lauren talked me through every step and explained clearly what was happening. Not only was she always prepared, but she prepared me throughout the whole process so that I felt empowered. It is so easy to become overwhelmed and intimidated by the opposing side and the legal system and Lauren really removed a lot of that by being so thorough with her communication. She gave me the confidence to sit through two depositions and ultimately a trial. Lauren was up against two opposing counsels, one of which was very aggressive, and the two combined were no match for her. Lauren can be tough, but in ways that will help prepare you for any tough moments you will face and when you feel like it's all too much, she will have her hand at your back and be right there with you. Lauren is amazing with details and preparation - it is impressive. She really knows the law and spends so much time reviewing everything. Nothing is left to chance! The most important decision a person can make going through a divorce is the lawyer they hire - Lauren is the best!

worth her weight in gold
Lauren is not only a strong advocate for her clients, but she is an effective dismantler of the opposition. I am not surprised that every client of hers recommends her. For nearly 3.5 years I faced the onslaught of an unrelenting and malicious ex-wife that hired multiple bigwig lawyers from large to boutique law-firms. Everything that I had worked towards in life was assaulted including my reputation, future prospects, integrity, and my mental peace. The opposing counsel had effectively stacked all the odds in their favor by leveraging every stereotype, misrepresentation, falsehood, and gimmick that can be imagined. To top it all off they entangled my work colleagues and attorneys also There were so many instances where I thought that the truth would not prevail, and that the opposing counsel would succeed in influencing and persuading the judge. However, Lauren artfully and methodically sailed through the process while maintaining a level of certainty and confidence that never let the case falter. After all was said and done, I came out on top thanks to Lauren. She can be rough around the edges but her commitment and conviction to help her clients is undeniable in the results she produces. This ruggedness of hers is an asset in family courts where things can get downright nasty. She is forceful and passionate. Provide her with all the ammunition and prep materials you can and she can be a hammer for every court room nail.

Lauren is absolutely superb!!!
I don’t easily get impressed with people since I work with the top scientists in the world. However, I am really impressed with Lauren and give Lauren 5 out of 5 for the following reasons. I got divorced in 2016 and have a shared custody of my son. My ex got remarried. She then decided to make my life miserable by filing multiple cases in 2020. I was totally blindsided, and did not know where to begin. Luckily, I got Lauren’s reference from a friend. Lauren was very responsive from day one and within no time, she knew everything about my cases. My ex had hired a super aggressive attorney who implemented nasty tactics. However, Lauren was able to defend the cases very well.. Her entire team is really good. I saw Lauren’s emails during weekends, late at nights. She worked round the clock on my cases. I can’t thank Lauren enough for such a good outcome and always standing by me. I can see why Lauren is rated as one of the top attorneys and received so many awards. Lauren is not only super intelligent but also really good when it comes to drafting agreements. She corrected all the errors in the separation agreement that I made at the time of divorce (I wish I had hired Lauren during my divorce). Many thanks to Lauren and her team. If Lauren was a sportsperson instead of an attorney, she would have won a bunch of Olympic gold medals in shooting by hitting the bullseye every time.. She is always that precise and accurate in her legal arguments and preparation.

The best advocacy
Lauren and her team protected me though my case with profession and compassion. I highly recommend Lauren to you not only because I had a wonderful experience, but also, I truly believe everyone who are seeking for an attorney would benefit from such a strong advocacy. Lauren is an excellent negotiator and use every best strategy to fight for client’s best interests. She comes well prepared for trial and I am so thankful to have her in my corner. Even the judge thanks Lauren to accomplish an agreement in such a complex case. Her team is excellent and pleasant to work with. Whenever I came across difficult situations or new process of my case, Lauren and her team are always there to take an immediate action. I benefit so much from her honest, straight and to the point communication and action, while I have worked with attorneys who talk a lot but do nothing. I can not thank Lauren and her team enough!

The Best by Far
I couldn't have asked for a better attorney on my side. She will fight for what you deserve and what is in your best interests tirelessly. Even when I was at the point that I just wanted things over and wanted to just give in, Lauren pushed on to make sure that I got what I deserved. She was up against a team of 4 attorneys in my case and came well prepared to each court appearance and crushed them. She is truly your advocate and is on your side 100% of the way. She will be upfront and honest with you throughout your whole case so you can make the best decisions for yourself. She is fierce, passionate and invested in the success of your case. She is also aware of your cost, which I know other attorneys are not. Lauren is fully aware of how important her work is and the impact that it has on people's lives, children included. She fights for the best for you and your family and knows that her work is setting up families for a better future. What she does is fight for you to get off to the best start in your next chapter and you can have complete faith that she will do everything she can to get that for you. This isn't just a job for her, this is her passion and she will invest her time into every client with empathy and ferocity. Hire her and don't look back.

Hire her.
If you are facing a tough and contentious divorce process where you need someone who will advocate tirelessly for you and make sure you aren’t taken advantage of, Lauren Popovich is the right lawyer for you. She has a thorough knowledge of the law and easily out-maneuvered the opposing council during trial. She was open about the various options we had throughout the process and gave me an honest assessment of the relative pros and cons of taking different routes. She always made sure I wasn’t compromising when I didn’t have to, and told me straight-up when I needed to adjust the way I was thinking about things. She was tireless and attentive, and her ability to keep her focus on making sure the final judgment was fair to me kept me from giving up during an overly long and drawn out case where the opposition’s strategy seemed to be to try to get me to concede out of exhaustion and frustration. My ex-spouse was seeking, among other things, long-term alimony and provision of health insurance. Instead, I ended up being awarded almost six figures in asset division and did not have to provide alimony or insurance. Even after legal fees, Lauren saved me over $300,000 compared to the settlement proposal that the other side had proposed. Divorce is miserable. You need someone who is going to have your back and make sure that emotions don’t push you into getting a raw deal, and Lauren is that person. She doesn’t lose.

Please stop and read this review!!
If you are searching through this site and looking for an excellent attorney, I urge you to take a moment to read this review. I found Attorney Popovitch a few years ago when I too found myself here searching for an attorney to represent me. I had been through a challenging divorce and now going through post-divorce modification with a narcissistic ex-spouse. My original divorce attorney was good but his office was one hour from court, he was at the end of his career, and I didn’t feel he could represent me any longer. I was concerned about switching attorneys very far into my case and my only regret now is that I didn’t have Attorney Popovitch representing me from day one. She is a BRILLIANT attorney and a fierce advocate for her clients. She TRULY wants to protect you and what is in the best interest of your children if you have them. Lauren pretty much has a photographic memory and she takes the time to understand all the ins and outs of your case so she can represent you to be best extent possible. When my ex’s counsel found out I hired Lauren, she became very upset and called her right away to let her know, she then removed herself from the case about a month or so later. This is because people know how excellent Lauren is. She has a reputation for not missing anything and she is extremely honest. In all aspects of your case she will be straight, to the point and represent what’s correct. If you go to trial, you will be so thankful to have her in your corner. Although trial was not where I wanted to go, I was so impressed to witness her in action. She clearly has the respect of the courts as she does not manipulate the truth and only focuses on the law and following the rules of the court with the upmost respect and integrity. I honestly was embarrassed for the other attorney during my trial while Lauren impeached their client repeatedly and basically ran circles around them. When I was searching for an attorney, I read reviews similar to what I am saying now. They were not kidding, she is by far the best attorney. Lauren also has a co-counsel at her firm who is also excellent and 100% like Lauren, brilliant, always doing what’s right and protecting you and your best interests. Their office staff was also very helpful, kind, polite and very professional when I would call with questions. I urge you, if you need representation, call Lauren today and pray she can take your case on.

The Lawyer YOU want in YOUR Corner Fighting for YOU
If you are looking for a Divorce Attorney, please read my review. Lauren Popovitch will take the time to hear your full story, she doesn't yes you to death and give you unrealistic expectations, she listens and then tells you exactly what her strategy is and how we are going to execute it to get a favorable outcome. She is with you every step of the way, she does the research, she comes well prepared for court and she will be extremely blunt with you when she has to be. Her firm is also client focused and ready to explain things when I had questions along the way. Let's face it, no one ever thinks their marriage will end in divorce, I sure didn't. However, when it happened, I did my research and called many attorneys. When I was ready to divorce, Lauren was my first choice and she hit the ground prepared and ready to advocate for and defend me. I recommend Popovitch Law all the time to people who ask me (and sometimes people who don't). I always say, Lauren and her firm are the ones you need in your corner. They come prepared every time and fight to get you the very best outcome.

Would give 10 if I could: Lauren is a genius!
Lauren is the best advocate I ever worked with! She won my very difficult case, that had minuscule chance of success to begin with; just four years ago, I lost custody case and got only shared physical/legal custody of my girl, even though her wish was to live with me. This time, Lauren, together with her skillful legal team, helped me not only to get full physical custody of my daughter, but in addition we won my daughter’s removal from US, which is extremely difficult!

Big Supporter and Advocate
Lauren and her team at Popovitch Law were tremendous in helping me through my divorce proceedings. Her no nonsense fighter mentality helped me get what I deserved from my selfish and manipulative ex-husband. I very much appreciated her and her team’s quick responses after I several calls and numerous emails in regards to my case. While Lauren can be a tough negotiator to opposing counsel, she was very much a pleasant person to have work with during this tough time. She was very personable and was a great person to lean on when I did not fully understand what was going on during my times at court. I would very much recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney to fight for your rights and to get what you deserve.
