Ms Lauren M. Friend was appointed by the Family Court in Manhattan to represent me in a child custody case. Ms. Friend was extremely professional and very well organized from beginning to end. She had a tremendous command of the court room and exercised the law with aggression. We won the case and I retained custody of my son. I got everything I wanted. I would highly recommend Ms. Friend as a referral and would retain her services if needed again.

Attorney Lauren Friend provided excellent representation services, with visitation rights for my toddler. Ms. Friend prepared all court documents and tasks meticulously and assisted with securing professional support to testify on my son's behalf. Her efforts successfully convinced the court to make visitation modifications that have insured my child's well being. Thanks to her professionalism, hard work and "no nonsense" attitude my son's well-being was the priority. I will be forever grateful for all she has done to benefit my child . May God Bless her in all she does.

Lauren provided incredible services and counsel for me during a lengthy divorce process. She was incredibly knowledgeable and also listened to me, treating me as a smart collaborator in the process. When the process dragged on, even after the final judgment, Lauren continued to be patient and respond to me regularly. The agreement that Lauren negotiated for me has served me in good stead. She is a great professional who cares about her clients and has extremely reasonable rates. I always recommend her to friends and acquaintances and I recommend her highly here as well.

Lauren is a very thorough and competent professional who always had my best interests in mind. I was always informed and Lauren always responded to my questions promptly. What I especially liked about Lauren was her ability to get the job done quickly and not extend the process longer than needed. Years after completion, Lauren is still available for questions if needed. Now that is amazing help and I highly recommend to all!

I retained Lauren Friend as my divorce attorney. Her last name says it all! From day one she never made me feel like a client but rather a friend. No matter how you slice it, divorce is a nightmare but Lauren was the best part of my experience! She is extremely professional and very knowledgable of the law which kept me at ease throughout the hardest time of my life! She truly is an amazing lawyer and made me feel like my case was the only case she was working on! Still to this day we stay in contact whether it's Lauren checking in on me or me just sending a text to say hello!

Ms. Friend represented me during my divorce. She was always professional, courteous, and kept in constant contact with me. Going through a divorce was a trying time for my children and me but having Ms.Friend by my side the entire way made it easier. The fact that she took the time to truly get to know me and the situation and I wasn't just some person getting divorced meant the world to me. I highly recommend Ms. Friend to anyone who is seeking a knowledgeable and efficient attorney.

I hired Lauren to do a pre-nup.
My experience was less then satisfactory.
Ultimately I felt she did not educated me well enough on expectations, terms, and norms. I didn't like the fact that her preferred method of communication was email. I felt her efficiency in use of time could have been better. . In paying such a high rate for a professional service I’d like to see that professional being laser focused and succinct with all communication and information delivery as possible. There was a a bit of unnecessary back and forth and lack of clarity on Ms. Friend's part which ultimately I paid for.
I ended up terminating her retainer and hiring another attorney who was able to get the job done efficiently and expeditiously.

I was fortunate to have Ms Friend represent me in a matrimonial matter.
Ms Friend was efficient, kind and attentive. The matter was resolved to my advantage.
