Professional attorney with results
Hired Lauren and her team for a car accident case in April of 2015. After a year of negotiation with geico insurance company fighting their offers to settle for next to nothing she was able to negotiate a full settlement for the limits of my uninsured/underinsured policy. She is a pleasure to talk to and means business. Courteous, prompt and professional. I would not hesitate to hire her again. Hopefully I won't need to but now I can afford the medical procedure that I need. If you're looking for someone to get the job done, look no further. Thanks for everything.

Exceptional Attorney
Worked with Lauren Calta at Zervos & Calta due to a slip and fall in a commercial retailer that resulted in a broken ankle. Lauren worked with me and explained every step of the process. She always kept me updated on progress of my case and was accessible anytime I had questions. While it wasn’t easy for me to get around she was sympathetic to my situation and arranged for any documents needed for my case to be hand delivered. Lauren is an exceptional attorney who fights for her clients and gets the job done. I couldn’t be happier.

An Attorney who gets the job done
We hired Lauren after a fall that resulted in a broken leg for my daughter (who played soccer in school) and surgery to repair it. While this was a stressful time for us Lauren was compassionate and thorough every step of the way. She asked the right questions and even went to take pictures of the scene herself. She kept us up to speed every step of the way and called and visited to check in on us and our daughter. Dealing with insurance companies is not pleasant and she fought for us. She wouldn’t take their offers that barely covered the medical bills and wasn’t afraid to go after them. Lauren got us a proper settlement and we couldn’t have been happier.

The best of the best
Lauren represented us after my husband was involved in a motorcycle accident. When I tell you that she knows her $#!+ she really knows her $#!+! She was in constant contact with us and let us know exactly what was going on the entire time she was working on our case. She checked in on my husband during his hospitalizations, surgeries and recovery. She truly cares about him and what he is going through. Not only does she care about her clients, she's an amazing attorney too! She was direct with the at fault party's insurance company with what he expected. She worked with our medical insurance company to negotiate the amount we had to pay them back and she got it down low. She won my husband's case quickly and we received more than expected! We hope we don't have the need in the future, but if we do we would definitely call Zervos and Calta to represent us again!

You will not find anyone better or more determined!
I called Lauren Calta after getting into a car accident in July 2019, then met with her within the next day or two. She sat down with me and listened to every detail that had happened, took a look at the photos that were taken of the accident and got to work right away. I had a long road ahead of me with doctor's appointments, physical therapy, and many procedures. Lauren checked in with me after every appointment and throughout this entire process, she truly cared about how I was doing and not just how the case was going. There were many times that I needed to reach out to Lauren and her team, and every single time they were there to answer the phone or an email. I was ALWAYS able to get in touch and that alone was assurance that I was in great hands. When Zervos & Calta say they have that New York touch, they mean it! The insurance company we were working against sent us a few extremely poor offers that wouldn't have even paid a fraction of the medical bills. Lauren did not accept, she fought for me. In the end I was completely blown away when I learned that the settlement we won took care of all of the medical bills, replaced my car and some. I will be forever grateful. I always felt that she had my back, and I would hire her 10 times again! You want and need Lauren on your side, it will be the best decision you make.

Highly Recommended!!!
I can not say enough good things about Lauren Calta. After being involved in an accident that left me scarred both physically and mentally, I was referred to Lauren, and I am so glad I got such a great referral. She was there every step of the way, she took on a majority of the burden and made the entire experience as stress free as possible, which allowed me to focus on healing and recovering from the traumatic ordeal. Everyone on her team worked quickly, efficiently, and kept in contact with me regarding my recovery, and the case. Many people tend to hear horror stories how cases get dragged out for years, how their lawyers are rude and show no sympathy. I can tell you right now that is not the case with Lauren. She worked quickly and was sympathetic the entire time. Every message to her or her team was answered almost immediately, and not one question went unanswered, even if they were repeated questions. All in All, I HIGHLY recommend Lauren if you need a personal injury attorney.

You won't find better representation.
I was in Florida celebrating my 50th birthday when I suffered a horrible slip and fall accident that landed me in the hospital. Awake in the middle of the night after surgery to implant hardware into my broken leg, I came across Zervos & Calta's website and entered my information. At 5am (I was shocked, but extremely pleased) I received a call from Lauren Calta herself wanting to know more about my case. Just a couple of hours later, I received a visit from her personally at the hospital. At our first meeting, I was immediately put at ease by her friendly demeanor and knowledge of the law, she was ready to get to work. Right away I knew I was in good hands and have never felt otherwise. Lauren went with my husband from the hospital directly to the site where I fell, took pictures, videos, and thoroughly investigated the property. She personally guided me through my case, day by day, helping me get through the pain and frustration of my recovery and resulting legal and medical issues going forward. Lauren and her team did everything possible to obtain for me the best outcome I could imagine to secure a solid financial future for me and my family - a seven figure settlement without having to file a lawsuit. My recovery was difficult enough without having to be put through a lawsuit and I owe it all to Lauren and her team. There has never, ever been a moment where I doubted her expertise, her drive or her motivation to fight for the best outcome for me.

In 2019 my husband was involved in accident on his motorcycle. He had multiple severe injuries including brain trauma. Being thrown into a stressful situation, not knowing what to do, and now the sole supporter of my family, Lauren was there to guide me and help my husband through this traumatic time. Lauren and her staff have always been available for questions or support. Most importantly, Lauren knows when to be tough and when to be kind or sympathetic to your needs. I am very thankful to have her as our lawyer and highly recommend her!

Articulate, Tenacious and Caring
I can not say enough about the great job that Lauren Calta did with representing me in a recent auto accident case. She stood up to the big insurance company that did not want to pay out for my injuries and medical bills. The concern and care that Lauren offered, made me feel at ease. I trusted her every step of the way. She was always available to answer my questions and concerns. Absolutely the best attorney that I could ever ask for!

Compassionate and Tough!
When my mother was tragically killed in the summer of 2019 we did not know what to do, On the advise of family and friends we obtained Lauren of Zervos & Calta. I was amazed at how quickly she began working on the case. They were on the scene of the incident within fifteen minutes of my initial call! They began taking pictures and collecting eye witness accounts. For several months we were in direct contact with Lauren. She was always available to us, and fought hard for us every single day. She has been there with us though this entire difficult experience. We have laughed and cried together. Ultimately she got our family a multi-million dollar settlement, and we could not be more grateful. I would recommend Lauren Calta, of Zervos & Calta to anyone. She was compassionate and gave us personal, professional service while being tough as nails and getting results.

100% Stress Free
just now Attorney Lauren Calta made my case 100% stress free. I'm not one to mess with legal issues and with her at the helm I didnt have to. I went to the doctor's I needed to go to and did what i needed to do and then before I knew it, the case was settled and I had money in my hand. Anyone that gets hit while they're minding their own business needs to talk with Lauren about her representing them. She'll get things handled quickly

Truly the best!
I had the pleasure of being represented by Lauren not once, but twice. Both times, Lauren not only went above and beyond to ensure that I remained informed on everything that went on, but also took the time to explain every step of the process along the way. Lauren treats her clients like she would treat her family and has a way of making the process seem so effortless. I am so thankful to have found her and can say without hesitation, that if you are represented by her, you are in the best hands.

Super Job
Lauren and her paralegal team did a fantastic job of legal representation on my motor vehicle accident. She was able to direct me through the rehabilitation & medical process and was a sounding board for the best approaches to take for resolving my health care needs following the accident. Lauren was always professional, concise, and considerate of her client questions and requests. Thank you very much.

Professional and compassionate
I was visiting Florida and was injured in an accident. Lauren Calta took my case and treated me as if I was an old friend. She always returned my calls and paid attention to my concerns. She fought hard to get me the full value of my case. I was completely satisfied with the legal services provided by Lauren Calta and her staff.

Look no further for experience and results
My two daughters and I were in a car accident - hit from behind. Each of us suffered from back and neck injuries. Given the number of other cars and people involved in the accident, I knew we needed strong legal representation and guidance to get us through the process ahead. Lauren Calta came highly recommended to us by close friends and from the moment we met her, we felt very much at ease. Lauren knows her stuff. She is pragmatic, tenacious and very professional. You can rely on her to be honest and straightforward with you about your case. Lauren understands it can be a stressful experience for her clients and she takes the time to address any questions or concerns you may have. I'm very glad we trusted her with our cases and we were very pleased with the outcomes. If you're seeking a top notch attorney, look no further, you've found the right one.

car accident
I have had the extreme pleasure of having Lauren Calta represent me after being rear ended in my car. The origanal attorney I had was to say the least terrible. Lauren was extremely helpful personable and there for me for any questions I had. She was on top of the case at all times. I could not have asked for a better attorney. I recomend her highly and would use her in a heart beat for any legal matters late may come into my life. Her results were more than I could have asked for, and done in a timely manner.
