Laura Dale has been my Family Law attorney since 2003. While sad that I have needed a Family Law attorney that long, I am happy to have found her as she has seen me through a divorce, 3 custody challenges (2 of which went to trial), and my last divorce caused by the strain of the challenges just named. The first divorce was simple and she handled it as quickly and positioned me well as the subsequent custody hearings turned out to be very, very complex.
Laura was able to navigate through all of the challenges to my role as the primary parent including CPS spite complaints and attacks on my child’s medical providers. Her 10 years of working in neuropsychology allowed her to understand and manage all of the nuances involving multiple therapists, pain management physicians, and a very clinical situation. She was able to recognize all of the underlying causes and how to deal with each issue in a very competent legal manner that protected all involved.
She has a very open and direct approach and always looks out for her clients’ interests, whatever those interest might be, particularly the child in a custody dispute. Her sense of right and wrong will not only extend to opposing counsel, but she will use it to make sure that you are in check during one of the emotionally challenging situations anyone can face. When I get off track and respond emotionally, she will redirect me to what is best for my son and me. She does not hesitate to tell me when I am wrong, when I am right, or when I am sticking to a point that is less than productive. She came up with and designed alternative actions and language to protect and help my son after specific rulings, and she fought like hell more than once when opposing counsel was getting off track with a potentially harmful request. She set expectations and was able to deliver.
I continue to use her without question and recommend her without hesitation.

Ms. Dale came highly recommended. She is compassionate and delightful to work with. We came up against very aggressive, well prepared legal opposition and she did all that was within her capacity to represent me. I was presented with unexpected legal charges following mediation.

It is without hesitation, I recommend Laura Dale as professional in family Law and International Custody, she is very knowledgeable and counts with a great staff that supports her all the time in many different ways: since keeping all sort of documents very well organized and handy which is key during long legal litigation to providing her with specialized expertise in other areas which makes her practice be very resourceful.
But, if there is something remarkable I have to say about her, is the kind of person beyond her title she is; driven by Ethic, passionate about Justice and Honor; always "on call" to assist and advice. It is well known Divorce is a very stressful and emotional situation; in my particular case, immigration issues, unsheltered with family abroad and alone in the EEUU; Laura and her team were all the time present to bring me legal assistance but more than that “HOPE” in an atmosphere of trust. If there are people who advocates for fairness, Laura is one of them…
I feel grateful for have met her.
