The level of service provided to me from Lauran and her staff was exceptional. She answered calls and handled my questions and/or needs immediately. I was never left to wait. No issues whatsoever. I hold Lauren in the highest regard and would recommend her to anyone.

Lauren is an absolute gem to this whole bankruptcy process, from start to finish. The worst feeling is to have to admit that bankruptcy is needed, and when dealing with explaining financial situations to Lauren and/or anything related to the "why", Lauren never based any personal judgment. At the same time, Lauren made me very aware of what needed to change, what the issues were, and explained from top to bottom analysis of the financial situation presented to her. Throughout it all though, every part of the process was discussed and explained, questions were always answered, emails were always answered, and Lauren never made me feel that I was interrupting her day or that she was too busy for whatever question I had. That kind of attorney is almost impossible to find in this day and age. Lauren never demanded the full attorney fee and filing fee up front, so she let me make payments based on what worked for my paydays, but she also made it clear that she could not file the case until full payment was received. Lauren is, and always has been, an awesome attorney who represents herself very well, who has her client's best interests at all times, who is extremely knowledgeable about every part of bankruptcy law, and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs the best of the best.

My real estate attorney referred Lauren to me 2 years ago. I own real estate property and was told that I could not file a chapter 7 because of my investment property. I had to default on several properties due to the water bills, etc. When I went to see Lauren, she advised me on how I could file my bankruptcy and still keep some of my rentals. She did everything I wanted and more. Lauren is probably the smartest bankruptcy attorney in the city. I am going through a lengthy divorce, and she is still working with me and advising me on how to move forward with my house. She is amazing, affordable and smart!
