My Attorney For Life! Parents Please Read
Thank God for Lauren Brusca!! I was in a very bad situation after initially being given horrible legal advice that had put me in jeopardy of seeing my child. In addition, impossible to negotiate with the other parent, false accusations against me, and had to deal with a bogus injunction. If you're having to deal with anything similar, call Lauren. Lauren is so smart and knows all the ins and outs of family law to protect your rights. She is incredibly caring and will listen intently. Do not let that fool you, she is tough as nails and one badass attorney. It's apparent to me why she is considered one of the best in Orlando. All the false accusations and the injunction were dropped, A parenting plan and child support are now in place and both sides are happy! Thank you, Lauren! I will be forever grateful to Laure Brusca for helping me out in one of the most difficult times of my life. I cannot recommend her enough.

Thank you Lauren!
I am so thankful that Lauren Roderick Brusca, (Family Law), was recommended to me when I faced domestic violence in my home, which ultimately lead to my need to seek both protection and a divorce from my abusive partner. Lauren listened to me very closely and I felt that she not only heard every word I had to say (or didn’t say; if you know what I mean), she not only could feel & understand the pain & sufferings I have been going through, she was also constantly very attentive and considerate of my situation, allowing me adept time, whenever applicable, to rest & heal. She was not just my lawyer, she was more like family. She had my back at all times, and that meant the world to me. I felt safe with her by my side. I felt how strong she stood to secure my rights to protection & justice. If ever there was a lawyer who stood by the ones being wronged & gave them her all, Lauren would be all that; & I will always remain so grateful for everything ! JM

The Best Attorney!
I cannot thank Lauren enough. I'm extremely grateful for her! I remember my first conversation with Lauren. Not only did she listen with empathy but she believed in me, which made me believe in her and gave me hope. The opposing party was making things as difficult as possible. The patience Lauren has is unbelievable. She is focused and was determined to see my case through to the very end; which would take over 2 yrs. (thanks to the opposing party) and finally end at trial. My case should have never had to go to trial but it did, and I can confidently say that Lauren was brilliant! Every single document I ever had to send to Lauren, every bit of frustration I ever felt; was all worth it when we received the final judgment. All the "stuff" the opposing party had been doing for years finally came out. I HIGHLY recommend Lauren. She is smart, she is fair, she is honest, she is trustworthy, she is compassionate, she fights with integrity, and she will have your back when you think things might be looking hopeless. I’m so grateful for Lauren!

Highly Effective and Exceeded My Expectations
I was referred to Lauren Brusca from a close friend and she definitely exceeded my expectations. She is without a doubt, compassionate, a straight shooter, responsive, and very communicative. She was upfront and transparent in terms of how things would proceed along with setting realistic expectations and timelines. Lauren has a high degree of integrity, professionalism, and puts her client first. She goes above and beyond for the best interest of her clients. Divorce and Custody battles can taxing emotionally and financially...Lauren was able to achieve my best case scenario outcome. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Lauren! I would definitely recommend her to anyone needing a family law attorney!

Highly Highly Recommend
Honestly, I don’t even know where to start. Lauren has been a life saver for me to say the least. I had previously hired an attorney that took of advantage of my vulnerability, money and did absolutely nothing for my case over a span of 8 months. I hired Lauren and she got a parenting plan for me within 30 days. She saw right through the vicious litigation that my child’s father kept throwing at me, motion after motion. He had all the money in the world to keep the case going and to run me dry of my funds to argue back. But she stuck by my side instead of leaving me high and dry, which was their end goal. Lauren kept me on track by focusing on the important things and there if I needed her. I am forever grateful how she fought like a bulldog for me and was empathetic for difficult times I was going through struggling as a single mother. I highly recommend Lauren for anyone who knows that dealing with the other side is going to be a rough one.

Highly recommend!
I was referred to Lauren by a close friend who also practices family law, and I could not have asked for a better fit. Lauren went above and beyond in a case that involved an extremely difficult opposing party, unusual circumstances, and more than a few headaches. She was tough when needed, particularly in response to the opposing party's actions, and helped me maintain focus on the practical and procedural aspects of the case. Lauren's professionalism, attention to detail, and ability to fast-track a very satisfying resolution to my case exceeded my expectations. I cannot thank her or recommend her enough!

Attorney you can trust!
Lauren was awesome to work with, very communicative, fair and took care of my legal issues regarding my divorce in a timely manner. She's one you can trust! We had some challenges and she was professional even when dealing with attorneys that should be disbarred for their practices. I highly recommend her for your legal needs!

Hands down Wonderful
Lauren was absolutely great! She was a referral and deserves every bit of it. From our initial consultation to my final divorce hearing she was available, knowledgeable and personable throughout. I always felt very comfortable and confident having her as my representation while going through a hard and stressful situation such as divorce. Highly recommended!

...and then I found Lauren
My divorce was complicated. 26 years of marriage. Several businesses. A husband with a personality disorder that thrived on making the process hell. Months of what I can only deem as suffering. I went through two attorneys and experienced everything from being being grossly over billed, not being able to reach, not understanding my case, to violation of attorney client privilege. THEN I FOUND LAUREN, and everything changed. Lauren took what was a very stressful event in my life and turned it around to a place where I could rest and know she had it handled. If I could, I would stand at the front of every courthouse and pass out her card and tell people it’s going to be okay if you have her on your side. If you are in a place where you find yourself in need of a family law attorney, someone you can trust and will fight for you, someone who knows their profession, not just from the time she’s been an attorney, but who grew up in a home learning what it was to serve their clients well, and if you are interested in billing that is more than fair, and easy to understand, and if you desire the best possible outcome in your case after the worst possible outcome of your marriage, Lauren is the one to call. My case came to a close, and though I was beyond over the moon it had, and was thrilled with what Lauren did for me, I truly was sad to lose the regular contact I had grown accustomed to. Lauren is not only a phenomenal family law attorney, she is also a wonderful human being.

Amazing Lawyer
Lauren was great in every way. She was realistic with me, and I really felt she cared. She helped me manage my expectations and ensured my focus remained on my child, while she worried about how to ensure we found the best solution for my situation. She wasn't intimidated by the opposition no matter how much they tried to throw her off her game. I just wish I had found Lauren years earlier. Would absolutely return to her for any legal counsel moving forward.

Rock Stars!
Thank you, thank you, thank you. If I could fill this email with so many more thank you's and hugs I would. Lauren, you are an incredible force to be reckoned with. How'd I get so lucky to find an amazing lawyer who operates with such great integrity and careful attention to detail? Because of you and your team, for the first time in 2 years, I actually feel like I can breathe. (Thank you Elis & Doreen!!!) Each time I relive the final proceedings, I'm even more stunned at how you remained in control of every moment and every conversation, in and out of the court room. Your demeanor, your professionalism, your laser focus and ability to take charge in such a genuine and respectful manner cannot be taught. What you possess is a talent that any client who hires you is blessed to find. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Thank you again Roberts Family Law team! I plan to recommend you highly to any one who's in need of an family attorney.

Outstanding Attorney
Ms. Brusca was fantastic to work with. She put together a rock solid pre-nup agreement for me with no chance for any loop holes. She put in a ton of time and effort to ensure that I was protected and that nothing could slip through the cracks down the road. I was very impressed with her knowledge in the field and how she took extensive time to help me with any questions or concerns that came up along the way even out side of the pre-nup that I hired her to put together for me. I would highly recommend her for her services!

Amazing Attorney
Lauren Brusca has been amazing through many bumps along the way with my case. I consulted with her almost 2 years ago, then again around a year ago and hired her in March of 2017. My case is very complicated but she has been very supportive and strong with every detail even as it continues today.

Injunction
Right from the first interview, Ms. Brusca was very professional, kind, and understanding. She is very empathic with what my family is going through and remained like this until the end. In court she was well prepared, knowledgeable, articulate and even classy. In the midst of this unpleasant case, having Ms Brusca handle it, felt like finally somebody cared.

Outstanding attorney
It's difficult to put into words how thankful I am to have met Lauren. She is professional and boy does she know her stuff. Lauren despite her professionalism never once made me feel like just another client, I felt like her friend. Imagine my shock to realize I had met an attorney with a actual beating heart. Amazing, I know! Lauren was easy to talk to and even made me laugh when I sometimes just wanted to cry and pull my hair out. I was stuck in a very dragged out divorce case with a very difficult ex. The attacks on me from opposing counsel became overwhelming and downright unethical at times but Lauren handle it all like a pro. She was very upfront with what could and could not be done in my situation and did not create any false expectations. I was 100% satisfied with the end results of my case. I couldn't have gotten through this difficult process without her and with her I felt confident. Thank you so much Lauren! I can't say it enough.

Amazing Attorney
Recently, Attorney Lauren Brusca represented me in a very complex case. I was impressed with her knowledge, compassion and fair billing practices that she exuded. She is aggressive in seeking the exact result that is requested by her clients. The attorney's do a wonderful job of explaining each process of the very stressful cases they take on.

Excellent Choice!
From the first day my son and I met with Mrs. Brusca, I actually felt she loved her chosen vocation as an Attorney. She embraced my son's very complicated Child Support situation and owned it. She immediately restored my hope and confidence in believing his situation was not hopeless, and she would do everything possible to correctly walk us through the massive ball of Administrative "red tape" thrown at him by the court system during the previous two years. I really appreciated Mrs. Brusca's honesty and the level of respect she displayed toward us despite the difficulties the court system had attached to my son's child support situation. She was never arrogant, but a true professional who was always available and accessible by phone or email, making sure we understood each legal step along the way. During our legal process she provided detailed directions for where and how to obtain different legal documents that would be needed by her or the courts. She gave my son helpful advice and encouragement as he struggled and wanted to give up, assuring us both that his situation could and would be resolved successfully. In the end, Mrs. Brusca proved to be an Excellent Attorney and delivered a successfully resolved Child Support case, giving my son a much needed second chance at living a normal life again. I would highly recommend her services any time.
