When faced with an unwanted divorce, Laura Urbik Kern's website impressed me as someone who was knowledgeable, compassionate & would allow me to make important life changing decisions, along with her legal expertise... she did exactly that!
From my initial consultation (I was so distraught), Laura & her staff made me feel welcome, & gave me a sense of calm. Laura answered all my questions & was very informative. I felt confident this seasoned attorney, who excelled in family law, would suitably represent me.
Throughout my 2-year divorce, Laura gave me great legal advice, often brutally honest, but always had my best interests in mind. She respected my wants/needs, & was willing to change the game plan to accommodate.
I never wanted a divorce, but I'm grateful God led me to Laura with her invaluable knowledge and experience! I'd definitely recommend her, & wouldn't hesitate to contact her office again if I ever need the advice of a top attorney!

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and and your staff especially Jennifer for her guidance and supervision during my rough times.
Sean Sullivan is my Attorney and he is a very smart and trustworthy attorney. He leads me through the right path and keeps me strong.
I was totally overwhelmed and ready to give up but Sean convinced me to hang in and fight for my rights. I am so convinced and happy that they will be will be with me til this is all OVER!! I feel more confident that I listen to Sean and Jennifer and did NOT give up.
They are both AWESOME!!!
Thank you for all your help!!!

Laura handled my divorce. Family law is complex. Laura is your best bet for a fair outcome. She will give it to you straight, let you know when your emotions are overruling your good judgment and she will guide you to pick the battles that are important. She fights aggressively when she needs to and is calm, understanding and cooperative with the other side when that's the best approach. If you're looking for an attorney who will tell you want to hear and offer you the moon, you're in the wrong place. If you're looking for an attorney who will tell it to you like it is and fight intelligently for your rights, Laura's the attorney for you.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
