Very knowledgeable,professional and informative
I contacted Lavonne regarding an issue I was having with my apartment. Lavonne took the time to listen to my concerns, asked some questions I had not thought about and recommended the course of action based on the information I shared with her. She explained to me the pros and cons as well as explained all the available options I could take. I would highly recommend Lavonne as a very knowledgeable, trustworthy and professional attorney.

Excellent real estate lawyer in Maryland
I worked with Lavonne to evict a squatter in my property. She did everything that was needed and she was knowledgable and timely in her calls and communications. I will continue to use her for my Maryland and DC real estate needs. Thank you Lavonne!

Great Attitude!
In a world where time is money, most attorneys are hard pressed to talk to people without being compensated. Today Attorney Torrence took the time to answer questions & provide options regarding a potential action. I sent an email to her on yesterday, she responded TODAY. She was not short or hurried and was MOST professional, knowledgeable and reasonable. She took her time and explained my options. It was pleasure to speak with her. And though I may not file an action that employs her TODAY, the time and the care that she took today is going to go a long way in helping to decide who I should go to when the time comes. She positively enhanced those things I think are good about the legal profession while dispelling some of the ill conceptions that I have about the legal profession. Her demeanor compels you to want to work with her.

Landlord & Tenant
LaVonne is very knowledgeable about her field and provided an outstanding service for my L&T case. If you a very busy individual LaVonne would be the ideal attorney to work with since she offers a professional and an effective process to do everything online without ever going into the office in person. LaVonne was very helpful and she will also keep you informed with all the best options that will be relevant to your case. I was extremely satisfied with LaVonne as my attorney and I would highly recommend her to anyone for her service.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I highly recommend Ms. Torrence. We worked together on opposite sides of a case but it was a good experience; because even though she zealously represented her client, she was very professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable in the law. She is a lawyer of integrity, and very pleasant and honest."
