Best lawyer out there
I could not have picked a better lawyer. He’s professional, personable and knows his way around the system. I recommend him to everyone and will never stop.

Second time around
Joe was so good the first time that I had to hire him again. He is the truth and takes pride in providing the BEST service to his client. He gives it you raw so that there is no grey area about what he feels is best for you. I will FOREVER have him as my attorney. He won my first custody case. I'm so thankful for all he has done and continues to do.

Hiring Joe Lawrence was the best decision I made
I hired Joseph Lawrence to represent me in my divorce. He was confident without being arrogant, exceptionally knowledgeable and able to fully describe possible outcomes, procedures, etc., and was able to talk me off the ledge when I became worried. My ex-spouse took a while to hire representation and spoke to Joe a couple of times while he was looking for an attorney. To this day, he says that I definitely had the better lawyer. I agree. We had a very amicable divorce thanks to Joe's diplomacy, professionalism and tact. However, should issues have become contentious, I know that Joe would have fiercely protected my interests.

Good experience
Mr. Lawrence was great. My husband was trying to get full custody or at least split custody. Mr. Lawrence made it so that he only got weekends in the summer. I got primary custody and support. My kids are so much happier now. I recommend this lawyer. If you have a custody case. His fees are extremely reasonable at a flat rate. I knew what I was going to pay and he helped me work out a payment plan. Mr. Lawrence is very fair and he knows the law. Fantastic

The best lawyer ever
Mr how lawrence is by far the best I was very nervous about my case but he was patient with me and assured me that everything was going to be ok. He also is very knowledgeable while still being able to break things into terms that I could understand. I received everything I asked for in my case definitely will be recommending him. He’s such a awesome person

Initial Consult
Mr. Joseph contacted me thru the website and was very professional and upfront with what would be involved in my international divorce case. He relieved me of my anxiety over this long standing divorce case I had not known how to get thru by myself. I was in the process of applying for an absolute divorce without representation due to being discouraged by all the other lawyers I had talk to prior to Mr. Joseph. I didn’t feel comfortable they would be able to handle unexpected turns an international case might present.. After our long consultation I felt relieved I had found someone I could trust to represent me fairly and completely. Thanks Mr. Joseph I am ready to start on my legal journey with your representation! Thanks!

Mr Lawrence represented me in my divorce. We got custody of my son and ebery other lawyer told me it was a lost cause. I feel like god put M. Lawrence in my life for a reason and it is a blessing. He worked with me on payments too. I couldnot believe it.

Various support
Mr Lawrence has helped us on many occasions . It started with our adoption. Mr Lawrence created a semeless experience with no hiccups ! This experience has allowed our older children to hire Mr Lawrence to help with their custody issues. He's knowledgable and really does have your best interest at heart! The only issue is that his rates are really lower than market value!

Great Recommendation!
I have had two recent cases that Mr. Lawrence handled. Both times he handled each case with professionalism and accuracy. He kept on top of the case and spoke directly to the State's Attorney. In each case, my case was resolved prior to court and in my favor. What a relief! Its nice to know that Mr. Lawrence is there to help and does such an outstanding job!

Really good experience
I hate lawyers but Lawrence was different. He doesn't look down on you like most lawyers do. Real down to earth guy and he helped me with an issue I had with my son's mother. He did a payment plan when no other lawyer would even talk to me unless I had $5k. Joe treated me like an equal and he did great in my case

Caring and Effective
He won my custody case for half of what other firms wanted. I could talk to him on the phone and he would not bill me for it. He is one of a kind, and not like other lawyers. Hire him if you want to win your case and be treated with respect.
