Lorri and her team handled an extremely complicated, litigious and politically charged case for me, involving custody of a special needs child and DSS involvement, against an abusive husband who was very well connected. She prepared meticulously and fought and negotiated through very difficult five day court trial and dozens of court appearances. I trust her implicitly and am forever grateful for her help. There is no doubt that if she takes on your representation you will be well protected and comprehensively advised. She understood the big picture as well as all the crises which developed including restraining order violations. Feel free to contact me for further information if you wish.

Attorney Woodacre was a blessing from GOD! She fought for 2yrs and went above and beyond to the WIN/END! Attorney Woodacre is still willingly and diligently involved with seeing my case to a complete end. My children and I will forever be gratful for Attorney Woodacre and the way she valued my family and encouraged me no matter what was thrown my way!

Quick response and thoughtful work
Because of my very limited resources my lawyer handled my post-divorce case of six years alone, opposing a team of two attorneys. Such pressure on him became impossible in the last year. We reached out to Lorri. She agreed to join, immediately started to study the case, assisted in brain-storming and prepared a quality trial testimony. Lorri's amiable personality was also a positive factor.

Attorney Woodacre is an absolutely Fantastic Divorce Attorney; Highly Recommended
Attorney Woodacre did an absolutely fantastic job for me as my divorce attorney. She came to me highly recommended by a long-time Wellesley resident as "The finest divorce lawyer in Wellesley". Her communication skills and style are very direct and expressed in plain language which makes it easy and efficient to do business with her. She was encouraging with her advice while still being respectful of my wishes. For legal billing, Lori's staff kept me up to date with detailed bills so I always knew exactly where I stood. At some point I may need to go back and revisit my case and she will definitely be the divorce attorney I go to.

Does not instill much confidence
Ms. Woodacre seems scattered and ill equipped to handle the complexities of divorce/family law. Wasn’t a great listener, and increased rather than decreased the stress level of an already sanctimonious situation. It’s worth spending the money on better representation.
