Lauren is thorough, knowledgeable, articulate and passionate in the representation of her clients - she excels in all of the qualities, skills and talents of an excellent attorney.

Very thorough and empathetic.
She was hired for consultation concerning a custody battle. She provided detailed and precise information for my areas of concern. She really helped to ease the burden of this very difficult issue.

Prenuptial consult
I met with Lauren Checki to discuss the potential need for a prenuptial agreement at 8 AM on a Saturday which is nearly unheard of. My now husband is a restaurateur with multiple LLCs and owns a home. I own multiple homes with renters and 1 LLC. The protection of assets was very important especially having little knowledge of how we could be affected in a community property state. Ms. Checki was able to provide an adequate timeline for when prenuptial or even postnuptial agreements should be filed, what they could and could not include, and generally give me a well rounded education on the subject matter. With the information she provided, we were able to make calculated decisions that will impact us and our businesses for the rest of our lives. The piece of mind she provided made our bid day that much more special having all of the cards on the table like that.

Accessible and informed
My consultation with Ms. Checki immediately instilled confidence. She answered all of my questions and gave me relatable examples and insights. She was also very generous with her time. I've talked to lawyers outside her firm and they deeply respect her work.

A lawyer I can count on
Mrs. Checki helped me get through a very difficult time with my child's father. She was extremely understanding, patient, and trustworthy. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable and understand what was going on! I would absolutely recommend her services.

A difficult situation made easier:
I retained Lauren's services for a child support/custody issue I was having with my son's father. Over the years we have gone back and forth to court several times and have never been able to come to amicable agreements. Lauren was kind, patient, and knowledgeable in our situation. She took the time to work with me on stressful and difficult issues, and used her knowledge to successfully negotiate several important points in our case. Thanks to her, we now have an agreement everyone can live with. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Ms. Checki is dedicated to her clients!
Ms. Checki represented me in court in dealing with irresponsible landlords. She was absolutely fantastic. Not only did she truly listen, she went above and beyond in her representation. She kept me aware of every step along the way with what she was doing, and what I should expect. I highly recommend Ms. Checki to anyone who might need representation.
