Settlement agreement and divorce
I hired Laura D’Orsi to handle my uncontested divorce. She prepared a settlement agreement according to the terms my ex-husband and I had already worked out, while ensuring that my interests were looked after. This allowed the divorce to be finalized quickly, while keeping the cost down. Laura and her office staff were a pleasure to work with and all aspects of my case were handled professionally.

Everything I could of hoped for and MORE!
I could not have asked for a better outcome in my case. Laura did exceptional work with my case and I couldn't be more thankful for that. I felt very welcomed by her and her staff from the moment I first met them. Laura is very knowledgeable and realistic throughout the entire process; she always answered all of my questions and was able to put my mind at ease with matters that I was nervous about or unsure of. I am truly thankful to have met such an outstanding and professional person.

Laura and her staff handled my divorce. I felt cared for and counseled in such a professional way. Every phone call and email I made was answered immediately. I am so grateful I chose Laura. She is a professional who knows the divorce law and process thoroughly. She chose a staff that works as a team.

Highly recommended!
I hired Laura in 2014 to handle my financial issues with my ex-husband after my divorce. She handled the case with such ease, & confidence to get what I wanted without the stress on me and I was able to focus on my job and my children. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a divorce attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
Laura D'Orsi is a wonderful lawyer. She has helped me and my family numerous times always with a positive result. She was the lead lawyer for my divorce many years ago and recently wrote letters for me to help get my children into the high school of their choice. I would highly recommend her to any one. Very professional and compassionate.

Thank You Laura
I used Laura for my divorce and was very satisfied. She was both professional and personable. I have recommended her and will continue to do so. Her office staff is also very appropriate and caring. Vicky her assistant is a true gem and showed compassion and professionalism. Thank you !!

Not Happy
I was not happy with my result. My husband had money in his 401k and she did not want to explore that. She was just interested in wrapping up the case as soon as possible. I would say she is not thorough enough.
