I hired Laurie 11 years ago when I was going through my divorce. Hiring an attorney at that time can scary because you are so vulnerable. It was one of the best decisions I've made. Never once did I feel she did not have my or my children's best interest as a primary focus. Her knowledge and compassion kept me focused on what was important.
Having had a mother that was diagnosed with Alzheimers I learned first hand the importance of preparing financially. Laurie once again guided me through the process helping me prepare my estate and make Healthcare decisions so my children would not have to.
Most recently worked with Laurie regarding a business issue.
I have referred Laurie to personal friends and my own clients and will continue to do so. Something I don't do lightly. As a bad referral reflects on me. Every person has come back to thank me.

Laurie pays attention to detail and she is quick to reply whenever help is needed. She is knowledgeable, understanding and there for support when I come to her with questions and concerns regarding my case.

I hired Laurie Giles to represent me in my divorce. I found her to be extremely professional as well as very sensitive to my situation. What I admired about Attorney Giles was her attention to detail. Her prompt return phone calls to me, as well as our many meetings. We managed to come to terms within a timely manor. I would highly recommend Laurie Giles, and if I need an attorney in the future, she would be the one I would choose.
