Simply Awesome Lawyer!!!
I was injured at work due to a slip & fall. I was in excruciating pain and I knew that something serious was wrong. But prior to having Attorney Laura Lanzisera as my advocate, I was given the run around for 6 months! I suffered with severe pain and was barely able to walk. I was never even given an MRI! The doctor just continued to give me injections, knee braces and physical therapy, which actually made the injury worse! After acquiring Laura as my attorney, everything changed!!! Finally, the doctor was listening to me! I was finally given an MRI! The results showed that the meniscus in both knees were torn from the fall! I had to have surgery. And I needed special equipment for home. Laura stuck with me through out the entire ordeal! She made sure that I was given everything that I needed. She was always available when I needed her. She is a very kind & caring person. She makes you feel like you are more than just a client. She is a friend and she truly cares! I highly recommend Attorney Laura Lanzisera! She is AWESOME!!!

Top Tier Attorney
Laura Lanzisera and her team gave me excellent representation throughout my workmen's comp case. From the beginning, she made sure my medical needs were met and all benefits were timely issued while I was out of work. Her staff made sure that I received updates with me case and insured that all communications were addressed. She fought to get me the best outcome during settlement, which I am more than grateful to have received. This Law Office is more than legal representation, they treated me like family and I could not have chosen better. Thank Laura and team!

Excellent Attorney
I was so impressed with how quick Miss Lanzisera responded to my online inquiry. She personally contacted me within 10 minutes. I was trying to handle my workers comp case on my own and I thought things were going well. After speaking to her I realized how vulnerable I was without proper representation with a GOOD lawyer and there was just too much on the line to wing it myself. Let me tell you, from the moment I signed on they began working diligently on my behalf. They followed up with the insurance company and ensured my doctor visits, mri, prescriptions, mileage reimbursements. Most importantly, this lawyer and her firm are very nice and caring. In the end, Miss Lanzisera got me a fabulous settlement. I highly recommend her.

Hiring Laura was a great decision ...
About three months into my workers comp injury process, all my pay, benefits and medical treatments were suddenly cancelled. I was let go that day left with no job, no income, and no further treatment of any kind. I needed help. After much due diligence, I chose Laura above all other Atlanta lawyers. What a great decision. She got me a different doctor, not the one the company made me use. Laura got all my treatments reinstated, all the back pay plus penalty and interest, and eventually a nice settlement.

Simply the best!
If you are looking for a Workers Comp attorney, look no further. Laura is the best! I worked with Laura and Jill to resolve my claim and I am very pleased. Laura fought to get the maximum settlement for me. Jill always responded to every email promptly and made sure all of my questions were answered. Her demeanor is very warm and personable. I will recommend this firm to anyone injured on the job.

Deserves WAY more than 5 stars
I came to Laura scared and confused and left my initial meeting with her with immediate ease and relief of stress. I am so happy I entrusted Laura to help me with my case. From checking on me following doctors appointments to replying to each email I sent, there was never a moment I felt alone. She and her team are so great and gave me the most amazing client experience!! As my title states, Laura deserves more than 5 stars.

The Caring Team
When my son was hurt on the job our world was turned upside down. He was denied medical attention, left in a world of pain and was terminated from his job. I felt so helpless and I knew my son needed help. We called the Law Offices Of Laura Lanzisera who turned our world right side up again. They took our case, got my son medical care and settled his case without ever going to court. They are a professional, intelligent, caring firm who protects the rights of their clients. Like most concerned parents, it is hard to trust the world with your children when they first began working. But with the Law Offices Of Laura Lanzisera fighting for what is right makes sending my child to work so much easier. Thank you Laura, Melody and the rest of the staff for your support.

HIGHLY RECCOMEND!
I will always recommend Laura. She helped me in my case with Workmans comp and eased my mind too. The entire thing was thought to take about six months to a year and was only 3 weeks from beginning to end and it was flawless! Do not hire another attorney! Laura is who you need! I checked out others and she was the one I found after I prayed and for months I never hired one. I just waited until the Lord said it was time. Am i glad I did. She is incredible! She will treat you right. Her staff is prompt courteous and Always respectful! She's the best friend you never knew you had!

Amazing service with such dedication
Laura Lanzisera and her team are very knowledgeable when it comes to workman's compensation. Herself and her team helped with my mom's case from beginning to end, and made sure that my mother's case was resolved with amazing results. Thanks to the Law Offices of Laura Lanzisera my mother's life has changed for the better. We will never forget what they did for us. The fact that she was there for us from beginning to end says a lot about her character as an amazing attorney.

Outstanding Professional Who Goes Above And Beyond To Ensure You Are Completely Satisfied!
Words cannot express the debt of gratitude I owe to Mrs. Lanzisera. I was involved in a work related accident. At a time when I was at my lowest, Laura could not have been more supportive. I found Laura to be highly professional, empathetic, supportive, and detail oriented. She walked me through every step of the process, and never gave up on me. She remained true to her word. She never pushed me, or made me decide on anything that I was not in agreement with. I highly recommend Mrs. Lanzisera. You will not be disappointed with her services!

The attorney who gets results
Laura took my case when no other attorney would "not big enough for us" was the usual reply. Yet, through Laura's diligence and expertise, I got a great settlement. She was always available for me and not once did I get shuffled off to an associate. I felt valued, and that my case was winnable.

Laura Lanzisera, Esq.
I love having Ms. Lanzisera as my lawyer, she is brilliant, and she is committed to the end. I was very impressed with her dedication and her work ethics. She is strong and fearless, and this made me strong and fearless because she showed those opposing me that we were not going to bow or bend. Although, I got on her nerve, she was always patient and steadfast. I have hired Ms. Lanzisera twice and both times I was not disappointed, and I was very satisfied. I will hire her again, and again, Laura Lanzisera , Esq is the best at what she does, choose her, hire her, you won't go wrong with her on your team because her expertise is above all.

Great lawyer, but an overall great person!
Before I reached out to Laura, I was given the "run around", with my previous attorney. Once I started doing business with Ms. Lanzisera, I was immediately relieved of the prior stress I was dealing with from my former attorney, as well as the stress from the injury itself! She made sure I was aware of everything, at all times dealing with my case, which was a huge relief. There's only One lawyer I would Ever recommend to anyone concerning workers compensation, and that's Ms. Lanzisera!

Found Relief!
There is nothing worse then being punished for being injured. I did all I could do alone. When I reached out to Mrs. Lanzisera I was unsure what to expect. I needed to put my trust into the law and needed to find a great attorney. I got both results when I hired Mrs. Lanzisera. It is beyond stressful to handle a case along with dealing with an injury that causes you an extreme amount of pain every single day. Mrs. Lanzisera always took the time to explain to me the details of my case. She also made sure corresponded with me. When I could not reach her due to her being in court her wonderful assistant helped me as well. Mrs. Lanzisera advocated for me and was very consistent. After hiring Mrs. Lanzisera I had to have a second surgery for the same injury to remove hardware. I was so done, stressed, and in pain. Mrs. Lanzisera checked up on me to make sure that I was okay and fought for me until the end of my case. I can now continue to heal. If you are looking for an attorney that will help you and will keep your best interest at heart you will find that in Mrs. Lanzisera.
