This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Laurie’s comment: “I have never had a client complain about me to the Florida or Ohio Bar. This admonishment was due to brochure I sent to potential clients prior to 2005 that was inadvertently not submitted to the FL Bar for approval and which was missing the word "advertisement" on the inside of the brochure. I paid a fine for the failure to submit. The Florida Bar also felt that the brochure had language creating "unjustified expectations" for which I strongly disagreed.”

You simply can't realize how RIGHT everything that Laurie does until you've been to a lawyer who's done it all wrong. I came to Laurie to assemble a new estate plan after a change in my life. By leaps and bounds, I was so impressed by her passion for what she does, and more especially, her command of the subject matter in which she clearly demonstrates her expertise. I found out that the previous general practice lawyer who put together my older estate plan was a bona fide idiot, who gave me reams of incorrect advice. The detail in which Laurie delves in order to make sure you clearly understand what you're signing, as well as checking your grasp of the documents shows that she truly wants to make sure she's also educating her clients. She's an empowering person to have in my corner to guide me through important life decisions. I can't recommend her enough.

I am a New Yorker who was appointed executor in my sister's will... she was a Tampa resident. Needless to say, this responsibility was made even more difficult due to the distance involved. Knowing nothing about the Tampa area, I selected Ms. Ohall to assist with probate based upon a friend's recommendation... and I couldn't be more pleased.
Ms. Ohall and her paralegal staff provided clear, timely communications, worked side-by-side with me throughout the entire process, and generally provided outstanding service at a very reasonable fee. This firm gets my highest personal recommendation.

We worked with Laurie Ohall on our living trust and she did an outstanding job - from start to finish. She was very professional and thorough. We would highly recommend Laurie to anyone needing assistance with elder law or estate planning.

Without knowing me, Laurie took my call and answered a specific question regarding a particular issue that I was researching for one of my clients. She was knowledgeable, thoughtful, and pleasant. I have already introduced her to a fellow colleague in her area, and will recommend her to anyone in need of estate planning advice.
