I have nothing but great things to say about Laura. She went above and beyond every time to serve me with my legal needs.
After a long search, I decided to hire Laura in Sep/2015. My case, child custody/child support ended just this month Oct/2016. Throughout the entire time Laura was helpful not only listening to my concerns and needs but primarily explaining my options according to the law and laying out a recommended strategy.
Laura truly cared about my case and showed it by responding immediately to me when I reached out via email or returning my phone call before the end of the day when I was unable to reach her.
I can say that Laura was not only knowledgeable of all the details in the law related to child custody, relocation and child support, but she is an extraordinary researcher for relevant case law applicable to my case as well.
Finally, her judgement on the outcomes of my case was spot on even though my case was trialed in a different county. She is a great judge of character and was able to understand and read the judge from the start.
I highly recommend Laura if you want to be successful and obtain the best outcome possible from the start.

Laura was very informative and considerate of the particulars for my case. She was able to take on my case which was already in process from a transfer with ease and was on top of everything from the get go. She kept me informed and she helped me understand my legal rights even when my case unexpectantly had to come to an end. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal service in her field of law.

I set up a short-notice (2 days later) initial consultation with Laura based on her reviews and rating in Avvo. I also picked her because it looked like she had experience with child support cases and I wanted that specific expertise. I had never used Avvo before but I needed to find an attorney fast, in a county different than where I live, so felt it was my best option--I was pleasantly surprised. She spent an hour with me in her office and didn't charge me anything. She reviewed the "Notice of Registration of Foreign Support Order" I received in the mail due to my ex-spouse requesting child support be moved from another state, to Florida. I had a lot of questions about whether I should contest the order or let it go through. After reviewing the order, running child support calculations based on my current income and ex-spouse's estimated income, and reviewing some other documents I provided her, she determined that it was in my best interest not to contest it. She also alleviated my concerns about whether I would have to pay child support beyond my child's 18th birthday in Florida and questions about ensuring there was a stop date on payments when my child turns 18. She was very thorough in explaining Florida Child Support Law, how the transfer from another state would occur, and what I should receive next from the Department of Revenue. She answered all of my questions, was extremely knowledgeable on my issue, and gave me the peace of mind I was looking for. A week after that consultation, I received another document which led to more concerns and questions and she took my call the next day when I called. I used up another 30 minutes of her time, getting expert and priceless advice, and amazingly, she didn't charge me again. She also answered jurisdictional questions that I didn't think about asking during my initial consultation with her. She is an honest attorney and will only charge me in the future for actual, meaningful work done on my case. So far, I've only consulted with her but will definitely hire her if any legal work needs to be done. I was blown away and know I lucked out in finding such a great attorney that cares about providing the best professional, legal service to her clients and not nickel and diming them purely based on time. She clearly explained her fees to me and I still feel guilty that I got her great advice and 90 minutes of her time for free. I can't recommend her highly enough. This is the first review I've ever written and I have high customer-service expectations which she greatly exceeded so that should tell you something. Great attorney that sincerely cared about my legal issue, and helped me resolve it quickly. I can't say enough good things about her...I'm a fan!

Laura is very responsive with any questions or concerns I contact her with. When meeting with her and reviewing my case she questioned the amount child support I was to receive, and corrected it, resulting in an increase of almost $100. / month!!!

A divorce attorney is not a legal service that a majority of people would utilize often enough to have a professional relationship with, that is until we need one. I called the firm where Laura works without having any specific person in mind, in fact I was just starting the "find an attorney" phase. (Here's where the luck comes in.) Laura was the one given my info for a consultation. Armed with my internet research "questions to ask prior to hiring an attorney, the good ones will not hesitate in providing answers" sheet, we had our consultation meeting. I was so impressed by her answers, demeanor, and openness with me that I didn't waste any time with other consultations. Maybe not the best decision at the time, but not one I have regretted for a minute. Some friends have told me their attorney stories good and bad. All have said that I "lucked out" and "mine wasn't like her" in one way or another. Laura is everything you want to hear about an attorney and certainly not one the jokes apply to either.
I'm not one that typically submits reviews good, bad or indifferent, but the service, attention, and overall results I received were so OUTSTANDING that I feel I have an obligation to share my luck in finding Laura with others out there about to go through the big "D".
Some specifics: Communications, same or next day turnaround on all communications with cumulative vs. piece by piece charging. This included unexpected weekend and vacation responses. Lack of timely communication was probably the biggest complaint from everyone I've talked to about their experiences.
Personal attention, I know she has other clients and cases, but I never felt like mine was second to any others. Nor did I feel less than or disconnected when working with/through her outstanding paralegal, Jenna. They are a true team and I could not have asked for better.
Open and honest, she gave me honest responses to my questions even if I didn't like some of those answers. Furthermore, she would swiftly and diligently provide answers to my non-standard/unique circumstance questions. However, she didn't waste my time/money chasing down the answers to my emotional vs. logical/legality driven questions.
Demeanor, Laura was nothing but the consummate professional in all my interactions with her. At the same time those same interactions felt like I was working with a family member vs. just my divorce lawyer.
In summary, if this site had a rating beyond excellent then she would get it from me and I truly believe you'll feel the same.

Laura handled my divorce case; she helped me navigate and understand the process, while at the same time she was very calming and caring during a tough time in anyone's life. She clearly explained the process, worked closely with me to understand the options and kept costs reasonable. She went over and above what was required to make sure everything went smoothly. Both Laura and her staff helped me understand everything and assisted in getting necessary documents needed even after the case was final. I would not hesitate to recommend her!

I am extremely satisfied with the advice Ms. Moffett gave me today in a telephone consultation. She had thoroughly prepared looking at my case before our consult and answered all my questions before I even knew I had them. I am super appreciative! If I have to hire her as my attorney, I know that she will go above and beyond to give me the best outcome for my situation. All the best.

I enjoyed the time I spent working with Laura. She was very straight forward with me and extremely helpful. She told me everything to expect every step of the way and prepared me for it. Also in the meetings she was very personable and kind. It was a nice blend of business and casual while accomplishing the goals.

Laura Moffett was great. She went above and beyond any expectation I could have had. She was professional at all times and kept me informed at every step of the way. Even the opposing attorney benefited from Laura's knowledge as she corrected several "mistakes" they had made. I hope I never need an Attorney again....but if I ever do, I know I have the best with Laura.
