Ms. Ergood is extremely knowledgeable in her fields of law. Her attention to detail and thoroughness is exceptional. She is helping with estate planning and trust work and explains very complicated issues pertaining to the Medicaid look-back period etc so well and easy to understand - even for my 85 year old father.
Her knowledge of the law is superior and when she is unsure, she researches to find the answer. We had a complicated trust based in VA with different laws than NJ and she researched and presented us with several well informed options. Highly recommend her.

I went to Laura because my dad had just passed away and his estate needed to be processed. As executrix of his estate, I had a general idea what needed to be done but felt it was best to obtain a lawyer to make sure there won't be any repercussions. With Laura's expertise, I felt comfortable knowing she was taking care of all the details. She answered all my questions and guided me through the process with step by step. I can now feel at ease knowing that everything was completed and done correctly thanks to Laura.

Laura first met with my Mom for estate planning, and unexpectedly turned into being the Estate Attorney. She treated my Mom with the utmost respect and kindness. She had to deal with extremely difficult personalities of 2 other family members. She handled them with grace and patience. She was prompt with returning emails and phone calls. I would recommend her highly to anyone in need. My husband and I would never hesitate to call her for anything.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Laura was opposing counsel on a probate matter, and I found her very easy to work with. You can be a hard charging advocate, and still be a professional with your colleagues. Thumbs up!
