Grateful
What did I need from my legal representation? I needed someone who could be patient that my situation was hard for me emotionally. I needed someone willing to understand some difficult nuances. I needed someone who both could figuratively hold my hand through some of it. Meanwhile I needed someone who could give me the information direct and straight and tell me when I’m wrong. It was a tight rope walk of difficulty. And at the end of the day I needed someone to care about my side of the story. While this time of my life was nothing short of an extended nightmare, I find so much peace knowing I feel represented fairly and by someone at the end of the day I can call a friend (which is nothing short of a miracle. For one person to witness so much of a figurative mess and still show up to advocate for me at times felt surreal) . I would trust her again to represent my character and side in court any day. My kids and I have so much to be grateful for from Laura’s hard work and foresight. Results Vary, verdicts are complex, court can be unpredictable. And because of all that I chose to focus on the person that would help me through all of that. I think many people would find themselves lucky to be represented by a lawyer as talented and astute as Laura Sclafani. It’s a profession that requires a BS meter, soft skills, emotional skills, dedication to their schooling, and a continual sharpening of a your legal instruments. I imagine on many nights it can be a draining career. Please call the firm and see how you feel just speaking with them over the phone. two long years ago, I remember vividly the first call I made to the firm where I sobbed and was full of so much fear. I felt the reassurance on the other end of the line, and never stopped feeling the full backing of an extremely caring and talented firm. And yes I did consult other firms and no one came close to the feeling of reassurance I felt here. Much public thanks to this firm, and many recommendations to those looking for what I once believed was a fools errand to find someone in this industry with heart. And a private anonymous thanks to the person who recommended I call this firm. She doesn’t know how she changed the trajectory of my story nor probably never will but I hope writing this to you, reader, helps pay it forward. I’m sorry you find yourself walking this path, and I hope your find a trustworthy person to walk alongside you. I recommend Laura because of my good experience, and I know the other attorneys and partners are also great from my personal light Interactions with them. I might add not just the attorneys. I felt as if Sandy was a friend. She treated me warmly every time she saw me or spoke with me over the phone. I knew that if I called and said hi it’s Kyle, that she knew what my face looked like and cared about me. If That storm cloud of worry tells you your case is forgotten. Sandy seemed to almost be awaiting my calls or emails to reassure me they were on top of it. Best to you, and best wishes to this team of amazing people.

Excellent Attorney
I have nothing but good things to say about this firm. Everyone I dealt with was responsive and pleasant. My attorney, Laura Sclafani, was extremely detail oriented and responsive. She went above and beyond to help me and get my case completed. Would recommend without hesitation.

A great ally in a difficult process
My ex-husband opened a case and served me with papers to lower his child support. I was scared about how this would effect my financial situation and my child but also about the whole process. Laura was honest. She told me things I needed to hear, not just what I wanted to hear. She was thoughtful about my financial situation but also caring and supportive of my desires to keep the process amicable. She was thoughtful and thorough. I must be honest, I didn't get to keep as much child support as I wanted, but I also didn't lose as much as I could have. This is a win, in my book. She gave me truthful advice about the compromise my ex and I came to during mediation and was fully transparent about my options and the risks. I feel that I was informed and fully taken care of through this process.

Laura is the best!
I cannot say enough good things about Laura and everyone I had the pleasure to work with at Smith & Files these past few months. Their office came recommended to me by the co-worker of my now ex-wife (Gasp!), and I am so glad I chose them. Laura and Sandra in particular were so understanding and patient with me during the whole divorce process. They took the time to get to know me and my situation and they explained everything to me about the divorce process and what to expect (I must admit it took multiple explanations in some cases---that’s where their patience became very apparent). And they kept me grounded during what was without a doubt the most difficult life event I have ever gone through. While I do not anticipate having to call Laura again for *divorce* counsel (since I do not planning on getting *divorced* again), I will most definitely be calling on her for the pre-nuptual planning when I do decide to get married again.

Family Law
Laura’s extensive knowledge of family law and her quick ability to site related cases is the only reason we won my 25 year old contempt of court dispute from my 1994 divorce. Laura outsmarted everything his attorney argued. She even set up an income deduction order for me. I never have to deal with this again. Sandy and Stephanie, Laura’s legal team are very responsive, quick turnaround time. This team is so fortunate to have Sandy. She gave me a sense of peace during the entire process.

Excellent and Fierce
Laura was a fierce advocate for me when I was returning to court regarding child support. She spent extra time driving and dealing with the courts in the pandemic while things were more difficult. Laura responded promptly to any questions i had and was always thorough in her explanations of the process. She snd her entire team offered excellent customer service!

An Honest Attorney Who Will Fight For You
I hired Laura to represent me in a custody modification case. She was supportive and honest with me about what would be the best course of action. I would highly recommend Laura to someone who has questions about family law.

Great help and information
Laura was very helpful, knowledgeable, and kind during my consultation. She was caring and very kind while I was going through a very hard time. She is knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process. I truly appreciate her and would highly recommend her.

Professional and supportive
Laura Sclafani handled my son's name change and she was absolutely wonderful throughout the entire process. She was very quick on her feet and made everything very easy for us during an extremely difficult time. She handled everything in a very efficient and timely manner. Despite the complications that arose due to the Coronavirus, Ms. Sclafani was able to get our case approved virtually and completed 5 days earlier than our original projected court date. Her hardwork and dedication to our case means so much to our family and we can not recommend Laura and her firm enough!

Thank you!
Laura was sensitive, kind and efficient when resolving my divorce. As a woman coming out of a marriage with complex and tender emotional circumstances - I appreciated Laura's diligence in fighting for my best interest financially, as a well as my best interest emotionally. Throughout the entire process I was confident in her abilities an attorney and generally decency as a human being. Thank you!

Attention to detail was unmatched
I just wanted to my satisfaction with work done on my case. Specifically I'd like to comment on how you Laura was able to jump in and represent me with an effective level of detail and understanding of a quite contentious situation that had persisted for some time. I am generally not one to place online reviews, but I would highly recommend her legal services.
