THANKS FOR A JOB WELL-DONE!
I'm very grateful that Attorney Childs went to bat for me even when I could not (due to extreme chronic illnesses) follow through on a number of things I needed to do to move my case during the legal process. I almost gave up on my case, but Ms. Childs was tenacious when it counted. I thank her for the favorable settlement I received in my case.

Laura was on top of things from the beginning. She was always available when I had questions or concerns and in the end I received a satisfactory settlement. I would highly recommend Laura for your workman's compensation case

Heavy Lifting
She done every thing she said she would. She was able to explain what to expect instead of what I thought by listening to ads on television lead me to believe. She was always up front and honest with me. Mainly she was able to understand my views on case,

Great Lawyer
I had a lawyer with my work related injury that did nothing for me. He waned to settle after my 2nd surgery ( I was waiting on approval for my 3rd surgery) he said they "have evidence" that the injury never happened and offered me 8k. I explained that I needed a 3rd surgery and about 9-11 months of recovery and therapy. He just wanted to settle and offered us 10k. Now I'm thinking if they have evidence why are they offering me anything??. One of my friends told me to consult with a different lawyer. She gave me the name of Laura Childs. I didn't even know I could change lawyers. Gave her a call told her my situation and Laura decided to work with me. She had to work out a deal with the first lawyer, which totally sucks because he did absolutely nothing for me. She even figured out that the first lawyer miscalculated my workman's comp pay. And I was issued back pay for about 8k. Within 2 months I had a trial. I had to go to in front of a judge and explain everything. Laura was great she walked me through and explained everything. I ended up winning. Had my surgery. She kept in contact with me and even called me the day after my surgery to see how I was doing. After my recovery and therapy was done she didn't try to rush me. I wanted to wait at least a year too see if everything healed properly. I ended up with a nice settlement. Laura Childs knows the law and gets things done right and quickly. She will not disappoint you. Not like the big law firm we started out with.

Since 06 05 2017
I came to Laura after a workplace fall. She has been forthright and complete in assessing and communicating all aspects of my type of case. All advice has included multiple options for each stage, regardless if those options differed from "our plan". That way, I was current and apprised of all possible courses of action.

Attorney Laura Childs
I hired Attorney Childs to represent me iny WC case. When I injured my back and ankle. Requiring multiple surgeries. My case is still active. But so far Attorney Childs has done a wonderful job. A little anecdote. After I was released from my second surgery. I needed a medication. And I was having a hard time getting it filled by workmans comp. Attorney Childs called the Walgreens and resolved the discrepancy. And made sure I got my medication. I will never forget that. And it proves she really cares about her clients. Not bunching them up and letting paralegals do the grunt work. She is awesome. Ralph

Brilliant !!!!!!!!
I hired Laura a few years ago. She did a great job handling my case. She's very understanding and very descriptive concerning the case at hand. I felt at ease and trustworthy because of her intellect and compassion towards her clients. And so I've hired her again, knowing I'm in good hands.

Still pending
Very nice polite wants to hear what you got to talk about. My case is still pending, really didn’t get far at all yet! But that’s due to Liberal Mutual not my attorney. She is trying hard to solve problems to make a person stronger.

Amazing Results
I had a repetitive work injury. I honestly didn't think that I was going to get any compensation. When I hired Laura things began to happen. I recieved payment for lost time off and got a 5 figure settlement offer that I never expected! Laura has a great personality and is easy to work with. I would highly recommend her.

The best at what she does.
Laura was recommended to me by a friend who swore she was the best workers compensation lawyer he knew. She definitely lives up to his recommendation. She is unbelievable knowledgeable and is always there to answer questions or go over concerns I may have. I’ve had previous attorneys (for different issues) that I felt I was always hounding for information or that would just never respond to phone calls or emails. That’s not Laura. She’s quick to respond and never leaves me feeling neglected. She truly cares about her clients and that is a breath of fresh air. I’m thankful to have such a wonderful attorney representing me. Thank you Laura for all you do.

Big Help!
At a time when I was off work for 5 months and going to rehab 2 and 3 times a week for shoulder surgery I went to see Laura Childs to find out if I was able to receive Workers compensation , She handled my case for me and got me a fare and fast settlement . If I ever needed her services again I would call on her again no problem .
