Lauren is an amazing attorney. Not only is she extremely professional and intelligent, but she's also genuinely empathetic to the stress and varying emotions that come along with a tough situation.
Lauren will always make you feel like you are her only client even when she is busy in court and with so many other clients. She will ALWAYS make time for you and you won't ever feel rushed. She provides a level of service you rarely get this day in age.
My divorce had many unique circumstances and Lauren was never afraid to embrace the challenge. I was always confident in her approach and trusted her ability to get the job done. She exceeded my already high expectations. To this day she accepts my calls and emails regarding questions I have and never makes me feel like I am bothering her.
If you are looking for an attorney, I can promise you are making the right decision by choosing Lauren.

Lauren helped me with my divorce case. She was so wonderful to work with. As soon as I met with her for a consultation, I knew I wanted her representing me. As to be expected, I was very emotional at the start of the process. Lauren's demeanor was amazing. Her professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine care for her clients are attributes that help to take away some of the stress of this process. Any time I had questions or concerns (and I had many), Lauren made time to speak with me as quickly as she was able, and she was incredibly patient and helpful with her advice.
The thing I appreciated most about Lauren was the way in which she informed me of my options. She was very good at explaining things and outlining each possible outcome, while at the same time being time conscious, due to the "cost" of each phone call. At the same time I never felt rushed or brushed aside - quite the opposite.
I highly recommend Lauren. In my opinion, there is nothing so valuable as having a lawyer you trust in a situation such as divorce. In a process with so many moving parts, a trusted attorney can really shoulder much of the stress involved in the process. Any time there was a bump in the road, I remained confident because of Lauren. I have already referred close friends to her and will continue to do so should they be in need of her services.

When a client asks if I do divorces, I just simply hand them a card with Lauren's phone number scribbled on the back. I don't know of a more intelligent and knowledgeable divorce and family court attorney out there. Beyond that, she really cares about the welfare of her clients. That makes her stand out among her peers and I will continue to send my clients with family court issues her way because I know how much she cares.
