Amazing Team
Lori is an excellent lawyer. She worked really hard on my case, representing me very well. I appreciate the hard work and would absolutely recommend her. The entire law firm was awesome. I have already referred a few of my closest friends. It's so important to have proper representation in any court case. Thank you for everything.

Will forever go with Lori
I hired Lori and Brock almost immediately after speaking with them concerning my custody case. She has an amazing work ethic and drive to make her clients feel welcomed, supported, and heard. I would absolutely recommend Lori as an attorney for any services she provides.

I would absolutely hire her again.
From the time I went to the office for a consultation to the time my case was dismissed, I felt at ease. Lori and her partner thoroughly explained the legal process to me about my criminal defense case. and I never felt rushed and they answered every question I had. She is a very proactive lawyer and wants to get ahead of the case. I trust her and would absolutely hire her again!

Highly Recommend, Forever Grateful....
There seem to be no words that adequately express the gratitude that we feel for Lori and the work that she and her team did on our son's behalf. Her advice was knowledgeable, wise & compassionate. Lori masterfully managed our expectations throughout a very long process, allowing us to hope for the best but preparing for the worst. Her counsel, both legally and emotionally, was incredible. Lori is a perfect mix of brains and heart. She knows the law but has the heart to see beyond the event to the young man that we know and love. We would highly recommend Lori Palmintier and her incredible team anytime we are given the opportunity.

Current client
I'll keep it short and sweet i have been a client since2020 and this firm has represented my ex as well as my son. My ex had a lengthy criminal record and was facing at least 10 years, evidence was presented ( BRPD) and charges were dropped within 1 year. My son's first charge ever was possession of a deadly weapon with cds a felony that carry's min 5 years. Lori went to work and he walked with a mistermeanor, they not only great attorneys but loving people i highly reccommend.

Lori Palmintier
Lori Palmintier is the bomb diggity! I didn't know what to expect when I first went to see her. She is so down to earth, very friendly, really easy to talk to, she listened to my case and didn't judge. She was compassionate, honest, helpful, assertive, made me feel at ease throughout the whole process especially since this was my first time ever needing a lawyer in my life. She got me even better than awesome results! Can't thank her and her entire firm enough for all of their help throughout this whole process. I would most definitely hire her again if ever needed! Like I said earlier, Lori Palmintier is the bomb diggity!!!

This is an AWESOME PERSON! She is very easy to talk to, althought she is very beautiful she is not condescending. One of the good signs of a good attorney is if they will contact you in a short time if you have a question, she is AWESOME at this and has contacted me within an hour of my questions. We did have to appear in court to set up another court date and she was talking to several people including the judge she had them all smiling. She has a WOW FACTOR about her, you know that person that walks in the room and they have everones attention in a good way. I highly recommend her, she will never let you down. She is just a wonderful person, I am so glad she is working on my case.

Best Lawyer
I never had to get a lawyer until now for my boyfriend and never knew exactly how things worked. Lori is extremely nice, very professional and works hard on all of her clients behalf. I wouldn’t have picked another lawyer. She’s very trustworthy and will get the job done. I pray I never need her again but if I do I wouldn’t want anyone else but Lori. She’s very intelligent which is good because I do not know too much about law and she explains everything to your understanding. Lori has made this situation go smooth and it has taken a lot of weight off of my shoulders. I am very grateful to have chosen a lawyer like this.

Fast, Professional and Courteous
I got a ticket for speeding and reckless operation of a vehicle coming from New Orleans back to Houston. I reached out to Brock & Palmintier and was connected to Lori. She made no promises but took care of business on the back end. Thankfully I won't have any of that on my record...Thanks Lori

If you want the best, look no further, the best is right here.
The first time i met Lori it was just by chance, and i did not know the caliber of person nor that i had stumbled on what i consider to be the best attorney that i could have ever dreamed of getting. Lori is a cut above the rest to say the least. Just imagine having the most prestigace, top notch attorney that you could ever want or need who has the inside track on the do and donts of the judical system right at your fingertips. There was never one doubt in my mind that i had hired the best of the best from the first time i ever spoke with Lori about my case. She is your one stop shop and a tiger in the court room. I could not recomend a better, more knowledgable attorney if i tried. And she has the most amazing smile that will shut a room down and to top it all off, she has got the good looks to go with that head full of know how to get the job done. If you want the total package attorney, you wont find anyone or anything that can top Lori Palmentier, hands down one of the best attorneys around. You wont regret hiring Lori, that much i promise you.
