Lori Buiteweg is the epitome of excellence, both as an attorney and as a human being. She took my case which was an extremely complicated family law matter, and worked diligently on my behalf, as well as on behalf of my child. Despite high conflict from the opposing attorney and client, Lori never backed down in the face of abusive litigation and bullying, and consistently crafted wise legal strategy that was executed flawlessly and with great precision. Lori is a tireless worker and it was her incredible work ethic that always propelled our case forward, and in the right direction.
Lori loves the law and her passion for it is obvious. That passion is what fuels her equally obvious talent for practicing the law and I always felt that my case, and my child's best interests, were always in excellent hands with Lori leading the way. She is articulate, acutely intelligent, attentive to detail, and possesses a wonderful sense of humor which is a reassuring gift during the stress of a divorce and custody matter.
Lori has a sincere warmth about her and is genuinely concerned with the well-being of her clients. She clearly cares about people and always puts them first while also managing to focus like a laser on the matter at hand and the appropriate outcomes that are integral to her clients' best interests.
Lori achieved the best possible outcome in my case and worked non-stop to achieve it. She has a particularly brilliant mind and her capacity for creating and executing near-perfect strategy, logic, and well-reasoned problem-solving, is unsurpassed.
I could not have made a better choice than Lori when I chose an attorney. There is, quite simply, no one better in the field of Family Law than Lori A. Buiteweg.

From the moment I walked in Lori's office I knew she was the lawyer for me. I was going through one of the most stressful times of my life and she was not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful person. She was able to help me see through the fog and I always knew she had my and my daughter's best interest at heart. She always went the extra mile to make sure things gone done that needed to be done. She was honest and informative and extremely knowledgable. I could not have gone through this divorce without her! It's nice to know there are such good people in the world who are also smart and practical.

I endorse this lawyer's work. Lori is extremely dedicated to providing quality service to each client and doing her best to help the client resolve their situation. She is extremely hard-working, thoughtful and creative in all she undertakes. Clients not only have a strong advocate in Lori, but a lawyer who helps them consider the best way to hold their family together during a difficult time.
