a caring attorney that is all about family.
Tara, represented me in a auto accident claim and settled for the max amount in a very timely manner. She is very family oriented and also went the extra mile to help me with my disabilty claim for work while I was out recovering with a fractured back.

I was sold a good story of ethics and good business practices and that my case would be handled professionally. In truth there has been no transperency, communication or updates. My case is a simple one, and I was advised on the simplicity and strength of it. Since my last payment months ago I have heard nothing about my case. There has been no communication at all. My money was received by Tara, no receipt issued. Multiple attempts, voicemail messages, emails and messages with her administration have gone unanswered. I am not from the Lafayette area so I cannot drop in. I have hired lawyers plenty of times in the past, and by far Tara's ethic's and professionalism have been the worst by far.
