Be Patient
I was very paranoid wanting to call the office asking questions every 5 minutes but you have to be patient she got the case I was so worried about dismissed in less than 30 days amazing experience.

Divorce and custody
Going through a divorce is an emotional time and a hard experience. At times, I felt lost but Laurin's experience and knowledge of the law gave me the strength to see me through this very difficult time. She is caring and compassionate, guiding me through confusing legal proceedings. Laurin Haddad is an excellent attorney; she truly delivers! She is tough, assertive, and won't back down until her clients get their fair share. When representing her client, she won't take no for an answer. I highly recommend Laurin Haddad. Place your trust in this attorney who cares for you, fights for your rights, and who knows the law!

About 2 years ago I had the opportunity of meeting Attorney Haddad at a local cafe. I remember my first my first impression of her was "Wow, she must be pretty important. Everyone knows her, she was dressed very professional, very courteous, and personable." I assumed she was a political figure here in Central NY. Little did I know she was an attorney. And little did I know, I would need an attorney a year later. Laurin and I sat down not only to talk about my situation but to also guide me with all the possibilities I were to face in the future. She told me from the beginning that it would not be an easy case, but that she would do everything in her power to get the outcome I was looking for. Ultimately leaving the decision up to me on which road we would take as a team in this proceeding. Her diligence and knowledge of law made me feel optimistic and safe in her hands. The one characteristic that I find important in Laurin is her honesty. She did not simplify things and make promises that I was looking to hear. With a case such as mine, camouflaging the possible outcomes would have been a risk I was not prepared to take . The judge has not made his decision yet, but I am confident in her and her hardwork that she has put into this case. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking legal services based on her compassion, hardwork, knowledge, and litigation skills that I have experienced firsthand.

Just okay.
I hired Laurin to represent me in a child support case. In the beginning I felt confident that things would play out in my favor, but that slowly diminished over time. While I know that no one ever is exempt from paying child support, I felt that there was more that could have been done in my case. I did not feel she was listening to me during our initial appointment while going over all my concerns. On each court date, she was often running in at the last minute. I felt she should have been there early enough to go over what was taking place on that day. One court appointment she was very late. My scheduled court time had come and gone and she still wasn't there. I called her office and was told by the secretary that Laurin was headed to a different client but would be on the way. I was told by the judge that I could reschedule for another date or represent myself. I asked for a few more minutes so I could call Laurin's office. At that time, no one answered the phone even though only minutes later I spoke with her secretary. Finally, she showed up and said she was double booked. Basically, I paid a substantial amount of money to Laurin, only to be told by the judge, that I was going to be paying money. There was lack of interest in what I was telling Laurin regarding my situation and my complaint. I felt we went into the court house, flying by the seat of our pants. The information that she took from me as I was explaining to her was wrong. When we went into court Laurin started to fight for me, only to retract and say "we can probably settle this." I do not feel that anything that happened during all the different court dates were ever in my favor or best interest.

Only in it for the money
Quickly agreed to take my case. Took my money for the retainer. Then misspelled my name many times. Any time I questioned what was going on I got the runaround. Then billed for more money. My divorce was finally going to court but I had to provide the photos and was told I would have to pay for appraisals to prove ex's property worth. Everything was about money. She threatened to drop my case if more money wasn't paid the day before court. After divorce was finally granted after nearly 3 years, I received yet another bill for yet more money. Very dissatisfied.

DO NOT USE LAURIN HADDAD. According to my now ex husband I am officially divorced. Something that should have happened three months ago according to his lawyer, as this was her negligence. There have been several instances in which she has failed me. To begin with, she did not know my name, my husbands name, my case, or what I wanted. I had to advocate for myself and tell her each time we spoke the run down of what the plan was and what I wanted. Her office staff violated confidentiality sending me another persons Statement of Net Worth.

Unprofessional DO NOT RECOMMEND
While trying to get my children back home and out of the foster care system, my husband had been assigned Lauren Heddad and thought that because she owns her own law firm would be a good choice for him but he found out very quickly that she never returns phone calls, never returns emails and does not associate with other attorneys for further information and considers it as "jumping through hoops" in which case told my husband that she does not do. She refuses to work with anyone else that pertains to a case that has more information then her and was just very rude to my husband when he tried to explain some situations and was rushing him as if he wasn't speaking fast enough for her and had better things to do then discuss his case. Lauren Heddad is very unprofessional, very rude, and very cold hearted. I would not recommend her to anyone who is trying to win a case because she has a very poor effort to keep in contact especially when there is important documents to be delt with involving small children. Very displeased and very disappointed with her attitude towards people and does not need to be in the lawyer business if she can't learn to communicate with her clients better.

Not a great experience with her at all
I hired Laurin as a divorce attorney and when I first talked with her on the phone she seems like a perceptive person ..she listen and offered suggestion to get my attention to hire her as my attorney ..I didn’t meet Laurine in person until our first court date in which she was running late ..she seemed nice enough though ..after that first court date I hardly talked to her one on one everything went through her paralegal..which by the way was amazing !!!Laurin didn’t listen to me as her client and almost never knew what was going on with my case..why would she when her hard working paralegal handled everything my case went on Laurine decided to run for Congress or something of the sort as well as starting a real state business on top of her own personal family related issues .I feel Laurin would make a great lawyer if she took on less jobs and focused on one particular thing ..Laurin seemed worried about one thing, that was racking up my bill and making sure she got payment ..I feel the redundant orders she did along with other items she perused saying it was relevant to the divorce when it truly wasn’t could have saved a ton of money for me had she done it once instead of many times .. Any time you questioned anything with Laurin she got upset and always had a rude response even when it was there in black and white showing she double charged for things ..she has poor people skills and needs lessons on how to talk with her clients ..I feel she forgets “We”the client hire her to do a job ,not to be screamed at or felt made a fool for pointing out a billing error ect ..she should also try to be more attentive and at least know a little about the case before heading into court..she relies to heavily on her assistant ..

Constantly Frustrated
I retained Laurin to assist with a custody matter. After relevant information was provided, Attorney Haddad went radio silent. At each stage, attempts to follow up on the status of the case were ignored until my third or fourth request for an update. When a drafted document was finally sent to me for review, it was a poor representation of the facts provided to her, in some cases stating outright false information as truth. It was full of poor grammar and included incorrect math calculations, In one section, she even gave my therapist AND herself equal credit for my emotional and mental well being. Communication is the crux of the attorney client relationship, and it is the skill this attorney is most lacking.

Laurin seemed to be working for the other side and not for me. She didn't listen to my concerns, didn't respond to my calls or emails, came to court dates late and unprepared, and then charged me an arm and a leg. She also emotionally blackmailed me and was extremely rude and impolite.

Not a good choice for crimanl defense
Laurin was hired to defend my Spouse in a Criminal case, she would not return any of our calls during the case. She seemed to be working with the District Attorney and not for us. Laurin would show up to court at the last minute, and could not remember any of the important elements of his case when presenting to the judge. She shouted at my husband and judged him for his past and not his present and even walked out on him after court in the middle of a conversation. She would not go over any thing from the case with neither one of us and told me she didn't have to talk to me. When ever I called her office her Secretary would say she is not in and will return your call when she comes in, Laurin would never call. When we asked her to file motions in court she would ignore the both of us. I then re-hired another attorney, all motions were filed and my husband was released and found not guilty of all charges. If we didn't changes lawyers my spouse would remain in a prison today found guilty for something he did not do. I am sure Laurin is good in other areas but not recommended for Criminal defense.
