Fantastic attorney. Highly recommended!
My entire family and I have worked with attorney Lara Harmel for many years. I have referred her many clients and have used her to represent me in many real estate transactions and she has handled other legal matters on my behalf. She is very thorough and makes sure you are protected and explains everything so that you can understand the process. She definately helps what can be a stressful situation buying or selling a home to be a very pleasant experience. She answers all of my phone calls, emails and text messages and Is always easy to communicate with. The office staff is great and knowledgeable and everyone there has many years of experience. I give the highest recommendation to Lara Harmel and her office.

Lara was our real estate attorney when we sold our house and purchased a new home. She was patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. We highly recommend her!

I needed to have a will completed and set up a trust. In spite of time restraints, Ms. Harmel completed the task within my time restrictions. Ms. Harmel was knowledgeable, professional and very trustworthy.
