Smart, personalable lawyer, who will work for you
I highly recommend Laurie, she is professional and personable. Laurie knows the legal system and always has your best interest in mind when handling your case. Laurie will listen and work with you and your circumstances to attain the best outcome. I've used Laurie for estate planning and other legal needs. She is always responsive, helpful, and takes time to talk with me and explain my options to ensure the best outcome.

Laurie is What You Want - a Law Geek.
I've only been using Laurie for about a year and hope to continue to do so for decades to come. Not only is she extremely well versed in all manner of the law, but has enough knowledge to even do quick, expert, competent research, to cover those areas not her specialties. She's already helped us with legal issues, ranging from elder-care and real estate, to intellectual property (trademark) and contracts. We have yet to present her with any legal circumstance she hasn't been able to masterfully control on our behalf. And while this certainly shouldn't be your first concern when in need of legal assistance, let's not forget her reasonable rates. We all know the inflated rates many attorneys charge. Laurie does not. She knows that bad things happen to good people, often with limited funds. As a family woman, she seems to really understand that people aren't made of money. In short, when you're in need of any specialist - medical, education, home services (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc.), you want someone who's truly into their trade and is not only great at it, but loves doing it. Laurie's that person. Simply put, she's a law geek.
