Posted by Taryn
I could not be happier with Ms Bovees service! For a year prior and 10thousand dollars with a well known attorney I had gotten no where. Lori was always available to answer my questions and concerns. Just two appearances in my case had substantial progress. She invested herself into my case working tirelessly even on off business hours. No parent ever wants to be in the position where a mutual agreement can not be made but unfortunately it happens more often then not. If you should find yourself in this situation Ms.Bovee is the attorney for you! I never once felt as if my case were a paycheck to her, her personal straight forward approach along with end result of resolution speaks volumes in a situation that is always difficult. I would highly recommend her to any parent that should find themselves in this predicament. I have also used Ms.Bovee in town court. She again proved herself to be an outstanding "shark" disproving untruths after collecting evidence and I ended up with the desired result. I know without her my family's life would be much different and we are very greatly for her and her services. You'll never feel as if you are speaking to an attorney, but a woman who truly cares. She will always be honest with you which is a rarity in the law field. Whatever your legal needs may be this is your attorney!

To provide the incontestable testimony of the promise and unceasing fight Lorie Bovee gives to her clients requires infinite space. 1st time mom and suddenly all alone, barely any money an impossible ex who instantiously discredited me with manipulation all impelled by my mother. Patiently I waited to be assigned a PD. & Using the amazing tools from AVVO.com until then to gain direction ondoing things right from wrong, potentially detrimental when judicial opinions can alter everything. Between Sept 1st and Nov before retaining Ms. Bovee, I spoke with 5-10 different lawyers from the capital district, solely looking to protect my innocent child. I needed the BEST. Lori Bovee was the only lawyer who didn't automatically lump me into a "BabyMamaDrama" category. The rest quickly assuming "another heartbroken person trying to use their child to get revenge". No one listened to my story ,or had an interest in "truth". The drive within me focused on what began to seem impossible. Pure intransigent drive, yet some how I remained on the losing side. I knew Lori was the one I wanted. The level of respect, without knowing many details, or both sides of the story, she displayed emphatically her trust in me. Ms. Bovee is a paid lawyer (and worth every single penny) but as a newly single mom in the heart of this struggle I had to try and wait for a PD. I whole heartedly craved the best, being Lori Bovee, but was it money I should spend? FIANLLY appointed a public defender, with my situation becoming progressively uglier and aggressive I needed some hope. Overcome with despondency, I called my newly appointed PD 6 days in row as court was only 10 days away wanting a plan as the other side was coming with the Calgary. I googled this gentleman, curious about his custody case history , if he was going to be an integral man of the law he stands for, if i could be lucky. Within 5 minutes of our only conversation he informed me I had no right to Google him, I had no right to ask him any kind of questions, and that he was not going to continue any kind of conversation with me until after court the first court date. Not only did I go right to Schenectady County PD management to submit a complaint, also withdrawing my need or desire for representation from that person leaving two days to find a lawyer. It was a discernable and luculent decision, and with hours to spare I acquired the most amazing woman I've known to date. Many lawyers have a stigmatic approach, looking to defame or besmirch the other party. None of which is conducive in the small court room discussing parenting time. The tactics used by opposing representation in my case specifically where childish, unethical low blows and blatant attacks on my personal character, how far I've come or the trouble I faced along my path, down to finances I lacked. Things that may be important overall but don't affect an ability to be a great parent. Even the law Guardian decided I was dramatic and lying and didn't spend one day protecting my child. Lori guided me for nine months from Sunday to Saturday anywhere from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Never wavering. Never diminishing my clingyness and obsessive anxiety. After I was granted primary legal custody, I had false CPS allegations with a 60 day open case and when that tactic didn't work the opposing lawyer had her client sign a petition she filled out filing for sole custody once again by belittling me calling me inadequate 3rd time in 7 months. Lori was there for not only me but for my child. I'll never be able to show my thanks. For not using gorilla tactics, or pointing to flaws on the other side, and for always reminding me what the true goal was, which is not hatred or being the 'winner', it's doing the best to cohabitate and always be above reproach in your dealings with the other parent, as the innocent life you created watches listens learns and is shaped by all of it. She taught me so many valuable lessons and will forever be a part of my life HIRE HER

Ms Bovee has been absolutely wonderful to work with. I hired her to handle my family court issues and we all know how stressful that is. Lori always stayed In contact and always kept me informed as to what may happen. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who finds them selves in need of a lawyer. She went above and beyond to help me out. I truly can't thank her enough!

Ms. Bovee represented me in a ridiculous custody claim that my ex-wife filed. She strategized very well with my attorney from NJ (where my divorce was granted) and came up with a rock solid defense having the case in NY dismissed with one 15 minute long case. I couldn't have asked for better. Thank you Lori!!!

An unsatisfied person should come to her??!! That's her answer??? How about the dozens and dozens of times I did just that, but COMPLETELY IGNORED me over and over and over.
This incompetent, unethical bad person abandoned me the moment my divorce was finalized. Post divorce paperwork that she had started months prior (for which I have paid over $1200) was NEVER COMPLETED. Her extreme negligence actually put me in legal jeopardy when I was served with a motion regarding paperwork she received for me to sign but NEVER GAVE ME! THEN, I actually had to edit a QDRO with a typo (about the 8th revision, all of which I paid for) myself and mail it to the court for the judge to sign, MYSELF. Luckily, the court attorney knew the situation quite well and the judge agreed to sign the document and mail it to _me_, (so I could then have it to complete MORE paperwork which Lori never finished) even though Lori Bovee was still listed as representing me. THEN, I came very close to LOSING my portion of the ex's PENSION (!!!) because she had informed me everything for _that_ was taken care of. My dozens of attempts to communicate with her, asking for updates on the progress of all this paperwork, failed.
She just ignored me. I am STILL trying to get back my $1200.00 I paid for paperwork that I ended up doing myself since I could not afford to pay ANOTHER attorney to do the work I paid her to do. I've got it all documented, saved all the emails and billing statements. WATCH OUT!!! Will she come back blaming the firm she worked for? NOT ANY KIND OF EXCUSE!!!

I received very timely responses from the service in general! Three lawyers to be specific. I really appreciated the quick turn around and I was pointed in the right direction by one lawyer in a different discipline, however, Ms. Bovee replied with a concise, comprehensive answer, an indicator of her knowledge and expertise as a Family Law Attorney.

Ms Bovee was very compassionate, helpful and knowledgeable in my family court matter that involved grandparents, custody and making sure my son had the services he needed. Without going into specifics, the case ended up being much more involved than initially thought, but she stuck with it and brought me to a good resolution. I was always able to contact her and her advice was invaluable.

I retained Attorney Bovee for a child support modification, which became necessary following domestic violence incidents, my own disability as a result, and my children's increased needs. Lori is professional, proactive and, most importantly, does not suffer fools. Unlike my children's father's attorney, whose arguments had nothing to do with the legal merits and were squarely aimed at attempting to portray me as paranoid, lazy and gold-digging, Lori focused on the legal arguments of the case and applied appellate decisions which were directly related. Most importantly to me, Lori took my case personally. As one who has seen many people promised the sun, moon and stars by attorneys who then treat them as a number, Lori was invested in my case from the beginning. She is able to go directly to the heart of the matter without needing to "destroy" the other party. She kept the focus on my children's needs and, when the other party refused to settle and hired an attorney, Lori went into overdrive making sure my children would get a fair hearing of the facts in court. She kept the main thing the main thing and her arguments on point. While there were many opportunities for Lori to personally attack the other party, she remained professional and focused. Lori also ensured that my disability accommodations were honored and was sensitive to the needs my disability created, which was incredibly important for my testimony. I have already recommended Lori several times and will continue to do so.

Lori was motivated getting my case, after that she continued to drop the ball with my proposals, she needs to be more proactive and focus on the clients needs, not the other attorney or law guardian, after all I am the one paying her. Good luck!
