Pre-Marital Agreement
I have had very little experience with attorneys and I found Lidia Serrano very helpful at explaining and answering all my questions.

Intelligent, precise, tough, fair
Lidia is highly intelligent and tough. She will keep you informed as work progresses. Lidia sees what is fair and what is not and she will let you know. I highly recommend Lidia for divorce cases.

Excellent experience
Lidia did a fantastic job representing me in a recent divorce. She was thorough, incredibly knowledgeable, and managed the overall process with respect and dignity. She worked well with the other attorney involved and always represented my best interest while helping to facilitate an expedient and fair process. I strongly recommend Lidia's services

Real Estate Comfort
I have one word the say about Lidia Serrano; EXCELLENT. With all the stress and legal terminology involved in my Real Estate transaction , I am fortunate to have Ms. Serrano representing me. She makes sure I understand everything she is explaining to me. She responds quickly and makes me feel like I have known her for years. I will definitely recommend her to family and friends.

Attorney review of Lidia Serrano
Lidia is very honest and knowledgeable. She informs a client of what is happening every step of the way. If she is unsure of something, she will research and get back to a client with her findings. Lidia is also fluent in Spanish, which is a very good skill to have these days. She helped me and my husband in numerous transactions throughout the years. She has always kept us informed. We trust her and know she would not lead us in the wrong direction. I would definitely recommend her as an attorney.

Exceptional attorney
I highly recommend Lidia as counsel. She has handled my family's wills and real estate matters with great skill and knowledge, and is highly personable. I trust in her skills enough to also refer members of my organization to her for assistance with matters that my in-house counsel department does not handle.
