Responded quickly and had answers
Called me back almost immediately. Had answers to my questions and was able to advise me on some "homework" to get done in order to effectively help me get a handle on my situation. I definitely recommend giving him a call.

Thorough responses!
Stuart's responses are usually within 24hrs. They are very detailed and you can tell he is giving an intelligent honest opinion, as opposed to other lawyers on avvo who lack to provide value to your concerns.

Awesome
The initial response was quick. And appreciated. I was amazed. Thirty minutes later I received a response from my bank with a similar response and the direction I needed was filled and matter closed. Thank you very much.

His advice was fabulous !!
I would give anything though to have Mr. Lautin represent me. I'm currently in Maine and the scam artist lives in Mabank Texas , makes it hard to do it yourself .

Condo Plot
Mr. Lautin has helped me on the questions about my townhomes on 7-1-15. He has profound knowledge and he is very responsive. In my opinion, those two are the most important factors when selecting an attorney.
