Top Notch Attorney
Emily took over my case from another attorney that went out of town. She got my charges dismissed. Although that's not the part that I was most impressed with. She was always available for me. She emailed me over the holiday to answer questions. She took my case and concerns seriously and contacted the appropriate people multiple times to ensure that my case was taken care of. She is a consummate professional and by far the best attorney I have ever dealt with. Should you ever need someone to be on your side and fight for you, Emily is the best attorney for the job, bar none. Thank you, Emily, for a job well done!!

NOT GUILTY
I have thought long and hard about what I wanted to include in this review...no words can truly express my gratitude for having Emily represent me. I owe her my life! I was indicted on conspiracy to possess and distribute meth...I was facing a minimum of 30 years In federal prison...I had a felony on my record for a similar offense. I was pregnant when the Feds picked me up...Emily got me out on pre-trial release and made them remove my ankle monitor. I landed in Judge McBryde's court and had 6 witnesses testify against me (one included my daughters father)...we took my case to trial and Emily was able to prove the witnesses were lying to get time off and that the DEA agent was not playing a fair game. I RECEIVED A NOT GUILTY VERDICT! I'm now home with my babies...if those results don't speak for themselves...nothing will. She saved my life...everyone said there wasn't a chance in hell we would win but she fought for me till the end!

Wife of client.
For an attorney who was just court appointed to my husband she by far gone above and beyond. My husband is facing pretty serious charges and Emily has kept in contact with me since day one. Very quick at responding to emails and keeping me updated on any questions or concerns I've had (which has been many). I definitely feel confident the out come of my husbands case will be in our favor. I would recommend Emily for any criminal case you might be facing.

Fantastic service & professionalism
Emily Lachance was absolutely the most communicative lawyer I have ever encountered, we were always able to reach her one way or another. Her professionalism, humanity and understanding was beyond what I could ever hope for. She was able to see right thru the lying accusser and was able to free us from the false accusation. With the case charge being a F1 she used her impressive skills to get the best results which was almost down to a citation. Couldn't ask for a better firm and lawyer, simply the Best !!!!! Impressive skills & wonderful down to earth person to speak to as well as being tough enough to get things done. I would recommend Emily to anyone and she will also be the first person I contact for any further needs!!!!!!

Outstanding Criminal Defense Attorney
Case dismissed, Aggravated sexual assault of a minor. I am pleased to submit to you this letter of recommendation for Emily LaChance to be your next Criminal Attorney. This was the worst time of my life, especially when I had done nothing to warrant the charges leveled against me. I truly felt victimized by the false charges, accusations, and slanderous lies. Having Emily’s representation brought a tremendous feeling of peace to both my wife and me. Her positive attitude and wise council, along with her intervention with the Criminal court system was a relief with the no bill dismissal I received. She was always available to meet with us, answer phone calls and emails. She is the most talented, knowledgeable, hardworking and caring attorney. Her experience from the Criminal Courts as an Assistant District Attorney helped us understand the court process and she had a plan for my case from the very beginning. Her enthusiasm supported us to get through this most difficult time, and we finally got the happy ending! We highly recommend Emily LaChance, and we are truly grateful for what she has done for us! Please do not hesitate to go to her when you feel you are helpless! She is the one you can rely on! Emily, I want to thank you for representing me over the last year.

She was not aggressive
I retained this attorney due to her reviews. The reviews do NOT truly represent the experience that we had. Emily is quick to take your money, however quick to jump off the case when the going gets tough. NOT what they state.
