Review Lana Panagoulia

  • I Would Not Visit Any Other Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Tony

    Lana is not only very professional, she is a compassionate person. After I was refereed to a lawyer, I decided I wanted to keep looking because I had that feeling that the lawyer seen me as just another case. Then I found Lana. Lana was very different and I am so glad to have run into her. Do yourself a favor and consider her as your attorney. You won't find a better person to give you legal advice; that goes a long way for me. She is also extremely knowledgeable while providing an experience that feels so much more than a legal consultation. She's a real human being and you just can't find that anywhere else. I rarely write reviews, but in this case, I had to go out and provide a very positive review.

  • You cannot ask for a better and more caring attorney. Would rate 10 stars if I could.

    After my wife left without a word and took my very young daughter, I felt lost. Feeling desperate, I tried to find the best lawyer. By hearing her voice for the first time and the concern in her responses, I knew right away that I chose the right attorney.

    Lana helped me during the toughest time in my life and I would recommend her to anyone. She cares about the children more than anything and will fight for what is right for them.

    Lana helped me get shared custody of my daughter which is exactly what I wanted out of my divorce. She knew that I wanted my daughter to grow up with both parents equally involved in her life and fought above and beyond what she had to do to make that happen. Without her help, I don't know what I would have done. Thank you Lana!

  • Sweet, brilliant, and a damn good lawyer. Lana's expertise saved my kids.

    My kids were in a bad situation at my ex's home...I brought my concerns to Lana after my ex refused to communicate with me on this issue and CPS proved ineffective. Lana fought like hell to protect my kids and get an existing 50/50 custody order changed in my favor. We had an EXTREMELY difficult case, and she never gave up and never backed down. She worked with me to meet outside of regular business hours and around my custody schedule so I wouldn't have to miss time with my kids or at work to handle my personal business, and she came to each hearing so well prepared that there was nothing opposing counsel could throw at her that she wasn't ready for.

    Lana saved my kids, and got them into the best situation we possibly could all while being considerate of my financial struggles as a single mom. She did everything she could to have me do some work to save costs, and I NEVER felt like she was attempting to drag out a case to get more money from me. She never used sneaky tactics to "get" my ex (all while his lawyers attempted to do that to me, throwing personal slander my way to distract the judge from the true case issues) - she's a stand-up person, and became a trusted friend throughout this process. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in a difficult family law situation, and that was true even before we won our case.

    When choosing a lawyer, remember that you're going to spend a LOT of time with that person. Lana was my partner in this process for the last 10 months; and for as stressful as the situation was, I always knew that when we got together that she'd really be "there" for me when I came to see her. I was shaking so badly during the judges final ruling, she literally held my hand to get me through it. There aren't a lot of lawyers out there willing to build that kind of a personal connection with their clients.

    I had met with other attorneys in the past, and Lana was the only one with whom I felt instantly comfortable and confident in. She championed me in every capacity - supported me through every step of my divorce with care, professionalism, and thorough, concise communication. I weathered the divorce process with a lot more strength because of her. Most of all, I never felt any condescension or apprehension when she tackled every angle. I cannot recommend her enough."

  • Read the contract carefully

    2.0 stars

    Posted by a Divorce client

    Initially I loved Lana. She was knowledgeable, wasn't spiteful or hateful and quickly responded to all of my requests. After the initial consult, I retained her after asking repeatedly if the retainer was refundable. She assured me it was. My husband and I decided to reconcile and I never received a refund of my retainer. I called her former office and they informed me that Lana writes her contracts so that the retainer was not refundable. It is my own fault for not reading the contract carefully, but I took her at her word during a vulnerable time.

    After my divorce, my ex-wife and her attorneys were stepping all over a poorly worded divorce agreement. They were obviously strategizing to sideline me as a father to my son. I felt hopeless and alone... Enter: Lana Panagoulia. She saw right thorough their legal wrangling and was expert at anticipating their next moves. Lana walked into mediations making no apologies, while putting the other side on notice that we weren't going to be pushed around. She is honest, driven, to the point, and a very credible lawyer among her peers. My only regret is that I did not find Lana Panagoulia when I first filed for divorce; she would have eliminated a lot of confusion from the start.

    I was fortunate enough to find Lana who not only provided me with her knowledgable guidance and confidence but was also herd me out at an emotional level.
    Lana is a great attorney and one knows for sure that if you are working with her then you are in safe hands. Her goal is to works things out smoothly and not unnecessarily litigate. I would recommed this attorney to my friends and family. Best Reagrds
