IMPORTANT QUOTES

"[P]erhaps the most valuable thing a lawyer brings to the courtroom when he is an advocate is his reputation....If his reputation is bad, I don't care what he says or how he says it -- he is climbing a glass mountain in shoes covered with oil." Hon. Charles D. Breitel

About half the practice of decent lawyer consists in telling would-be Clients that they are DAMNED FOOLS and should STOP! - Judge Van Nortwick quoting Judge Posner quoting Elihu Root, ESQ.

Excellent Representation!!
I had the privilege of observing the Laurent Law Office in action that involved an unlicensed plumber's lawsuit against a client who had refused payment for inadequate service. It was nothing short of impressive. In sum, I highly recommend Laurent Law Office or anyone seeking legal representation. Their professionalism, strategic thinking, and dedication to their clients' needs truly set them apart as an exemplary attorney in our field."

Awesome Laywer
Hegel Laurent has come to my aide with guidance in two situations one of which was for a multi-car wreck and another for a traffic infraction. Through those two consultations i found that he is one of the purest of professionals in any discipline one would come across and based in intregrity. Hegel is very knowledgeable in his craft and takes pride in what he does. I trust him with any legal circumstance.

Rental Case
Mr. Laurent has been extremely helpful and responsive towards my case where an establishment was to some sort "bullying" me into paying the rent even though I never received any signed documents from said party. He was extremely ethical and professional and dealt with it accordingly.

Sincerely thankful!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank & praise Me. Laurent for his outstanding attention to detail in my case. He protected my interests when I could not due to overwhelming grief from the loss of my loved ones. He worked tirelessly (even on weekends) & kept me informed with every step he took. Mr Laurant thank you for going above & beyond. Real dedication is rare & you made me feel safe & protected. Thank you for your incredible work ethic & know that I will gladly speak to anyone of your abilities!

Landlord v. Tenant
I was facing an eviction due to a dispute with my landlord. Mr. Laurent saved me from such a nerve recking experience. He was able to settle my case and saved my daughter and I from being thrown out on the street. He is hands down the best! Understanding, respectful and very knowledgeable.

Wedding Case
One word to describe Mr. Laurent is remarkable. He helped my wife and I, with our case for our wedding during the pandemic. The wedding venue did not want to refund us our money. Which became an uphill battle. Mr. Laurent kept reassuring us everything would workout. And everything did workout we won our case thanks to him.

An amazing experience
I was completely lost and in the middle of crazy life drama. Mr Laurent was exactly what I needed! He went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and explain everything every step of the way. You really feel like someone cares about your cause and is willing to do whatever it takes to secure the best possible outcome for you. Super real and upfront. Very talented and on the ball. Definitely someone you want on your side.

Professional, high integrity, and knowledgeable
In a place like Miami, where things can go really well or really bad, the same holds true for people that cross your path. I had the unfortunate experience with a landlord who tried to continuously get extra money from me, including lying about how I returned the house rental that she owned in order to keep my deposit (it was obvious this was not her first rodeo with intimidation and trying to get over on a tenant). I came across some not so great attorneys who simply were trying to charge high consultation fees along with creating high disclaimers to handle my case. In the end I would have lost my deposit in attorney fees and would have only proved a point to my beloved slumlord. I knew that there had to be a better option, and someone out there with high morale and great understanding for the type of case I was up against. After much research, and venting to those I knew, Mr. Laurent was finally recommended to me. From our first conversation Mr. Laurent laid down the law, and proved to be exceptionally knowledgeable in my type of case. He was poised, confident and most importantly had a morale so high with the desire to truly help, that he did not charge anything up front. On the contrary he was so determined and confident to act in a just manner that he worked based on contingency. We agreed to very minimal inevitable processing fees and he would not get paid unless it won in trial. Happy to say that the case did not go to trial, landlord realized I was serious and she did not want a piece of Mr. Laurent already having tasted his skills through negotiations, therefore I was able to get my deposit back. Mr Laurent's minimal fee for general filing of possible suit, along with his undying time and dedication to negotiations led me to be extremely thankful and more than satisfied with our outcome. Morale, integrity, honesty, and knowledge are priceless when it comes to a lawyer, but Mr. Laurent definitely prided himself with doing what was right for me at a minimal cost, so that I can come out virtually unaffected by someone else's devious attempted actions. Also, his office personnel were very professional, highly receptive to my calls, and keeping Mr. Laurent and I in constant contact.

excellent lawyer
Mr. Hegel Laurent is very astute, knowledgeable but most importantly a true professional of the highest ethics, an extremely rare quality in the industry. He will explain things thoroughly and compassionately and show you what's in your best interest as a client. I would contract him for any legal matter.
