Had a meeting to discuss the need for a separation agreenent. Even though everything was already handled she recommended proceeding. More than 3 weeks abs several reminder calls passed before she mailed me the agreement which had errors. I never received a hard copy just the emailed drafts. I was billed for the agreement as well as the emails to send it to me. The court advised it was unnecessary. I notified her on May 30 that I was terminating her services and it took until July 12 to get the balance of my retainer returned and only then after I sent a certified letter.

I worked with Kathy on a very complicated and emotional divorce and custody. My case was difficult for a variety of reasons and Kathy was able to navigate through all the difficulties and constantly reassure me that everything was going to be okay. And, she was right. She was very responsive to all my questions, and I had tons. I never had a problem reaching her and talked to her "after hours" a lot as well. I truly felt she cared about the wellbeing of me and my children. She prepared me fully for every court hearing and clearly explained all the different processes within the family court. I would 100% recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney. Her years of experience are very evident in her work. A+++

The process of divorce can be quite emotional and overwhelming. Having said that, I am thankful that I hired Kathy Laffey as my lawyer. I asked family and friends if they knew of a "good" lawyer. And 3 different people (who did not know each other) suggested Kathy Laffey ... All stating that she was "the best"! Her professionalism will speak for itself. But the bonus for me was her constant support and respect for my feelings and opinions during this trying time. And at the end of the day ... I was more than happy with the results. Teaming up with Kathy was a Win/Win for me!
