Lauren has been such a god-send for me. She helped me to mitigate a messy mediation situation where I was poised to give everything away by the time she came to my aide. She was very patient with me on hard decisions and helped me to gain back shared custody of my children without going through the process of litigation. If litigation were to have been necessary, she had me prepared to go with another lawyer so I wouldn't lose any time. She didn't miss a beat and my life after divorce is much better now if she had not come in to help me with my case. I would recommend Lauren Bokor!!

I hired Lauren as a collaborative attorney in an effort to settle my divorce without proceeding to litigation. I knew very little about the different processes (e.g., mediation, collaborative, litigation) used to settle divorces and Lauren was extremely helpful in educating me on these topics and teaching me the pros and cons of each approach. This helped me to make educated decisions that I was comfortable with based on our discussions. She also made it clear that she had a genuine interest in the well being of my family and always minimized the business aspect of the relationship. She is an excellent lawyer in this space and I highly recommend her to others that are considering legal representation in divorce proceedings. Very happy with her work on my case!

I first met Lauren about nine years ago when looking for a mediation lawyer to facilitate my divorce process. From the many lawyers I talked to, she was the one that inspired the most trust and confidence, and to this I do not regret the decision of working with her.
Those who have been through a divorce know that a divorce is always a messy emotional and financial process. This gets magnified if people do it the "traditional" way with separate lawyers alienating the couple even more, expensive litigation, arguing back-and-forward endlessly, etc. At times this process can take years.
But with mediation divorce does not become an adversarial process. It is a process in which both parties communicate in ways that are healthy. Lauren is excellent and very skillful at facilitating this type of communication. What I appreciated the most about working with Lauren was her kind spirit and empathetic presence. While working with her it felt like she must have received training as a counselor at some point in her career due to her excellent listening skills. It made the divorce process go smoothly, and it was significantly cheaper than a traditional divorce.
I am grateful for the support Lauren provided during a rather difficult time in my life. I highly recommend her professional services.

I hired Lauren for mediation of my separation and divorce in New York City. Lauren was extremely knowledgable and very professional. I could not have been more pleased. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
