Lauren Harutun is an incredible attorney
When we were seeking an attorney to handle our custody case we had a laundry list of things we wanted in a lawyer. We wanted a call back if we left a message within a reasonable amount of time, someone who was very knowledgable about the laws and statutes, a person that we could have a human conversation with and be able to understand what was happening and an aggressive but fair attorney. Lauren met those expectations with flying colors and throughout our journey with her she has exceeded our expectations. She is very knowledgable and has guided us through a messy process with grace and professionalism. We have faced many challenges with our opposing party including substance abuse, child abuse, delay tactics and a rather difficult opposing council. Lauren has always been level headed, fair, honest and aggressive when needed. Her first concern is always the welfare of our daughter and she hears our wants and needs. We are truly grateful to have an attorney who is sharp but also so incredibly human. We absolutely recommend Lauren and trust her to handle any situation that we are faced with.

An attorney with the heart of a lion..and the claws of one, too!
Lauren was the first attorney I've ever had to retain. I had an uncooperative ex-partner with an axe to grind and the only thing that scared me more than the effect it would have on our child was that I'd be too broke to feed her after retaining counsel. Lauren handled my situation deftly and professionally while managing to be supportive emotionally. She accomplishes the rare balance of being sensitive and caring while refusing to take any nonsense. She is worth every penny- and she made sure not to waste any of mine, either. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Best of the best!
Lauren and her assistant (Laura) went above and beyond for me and my family while we went through a difficult divorce. She always made herself available, no matter what she had going on. She had amazing resources for everything (legal experts, counseling, financial, children, etc) that our family needed. When dealing with a very difficult opposing counsel, Lauren handled the situation with such integrity, ethics, and professionalism. I cannot speak highly enough of Lauren and her staff. First and foremost, Lauren is a children's advocate and is always in favor of reconciliation, if possible. There is so much that sets Lauren apart from the rest, but the most obvious is how she is emotionally available to her clients and their situation. This is a rare quality in the legal field. Lauren did not stop fighting for me and my children, even when things got very difficult. I would recommend Lauren and her practice to anyone looking for an honest, hard working, ethical, and just plain good family attorney. She knows every aspect of family law and she is very good in court. I consider Lauren a friend at this point, because of all we've gone through together. I'm so thankful I chose her to represent me and my children in the toughest time of our lives. We were in such good hands!

Empathetic, perceptive but aggressive when she needs to be(she has a hidden cape)!!
If someone had told me I'd be posting a VERY positive review about an attorney...I'd say you're crazy! But, here I am and yes I can FINALLY say that after the scary, uncaring and costly lawyer's I've had in the past, that Lauren is the hope and results person I've been waiting for!! There aren't enough words to say how thankful I am for Lauren! Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

Professional, ethical and honest- Highly recommended!
I have had the pleasure of working with Lauren and have experienced her willingness to help others. Lauren has always maintained a professional and ethical relationship with her clients and those involved, while using personal experiences to comfort them. She understands that each case is just as different as the people involved and she handles each case accordingly. I have never seen someone so passionate about children as Lauren is and someone who makes every effort to provide professional, honest and ethical assistance to each and every person she meets.

Very responsive and knowledgeable!
Lauren helped my mom with a rental-property dispute and was super-responsive, very understanding and gave her some great guidance.

Clean, Easy and Non Stressful Divorce.
Lauren was very helpful during my divorce process. My ex husband and I decided to do a cooperative divorce and Lauren was very good deciding what was good for the both of us. She kept me up to date and the processes required. My divorce was a pretty simple one, we had no kids and all the assets were already broken up for the most part during the separation. I couldn't believe how simple Lauren made it. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Lauren for divorce or custody battles.

Lauren Harutun is the person that you want on your side, without a doubt!
Lauren not only handles your case, she handles it personally. In our case with our adult son she was able to be 100% professional, keep the attorney - client information private and still be able to keep us as his hysterical parents calm. Lauren is a hard working, action packed attorney, we would not hesitate to hire her again. We highly recommend her.

Level-headed & tenacious, she does what's in your best interest; Tremendous advocate for you and your kids
Lauren is tough when needed and collaborative when possible. She provides excellent, cost-effective representation. She is an attorney I can trust. My divorce was supposed to be pretty straightforward - but my ex-wanted a fight. Lauren had no problem fighting - but didn't file unnecessarily motions and unnecessarily drive up the cost for me, and that never impacted how she represented me. I felt I got First Class representation. She's fair and balanced. I told her what I wanted, and she told me what the strengths & weaknesses of my case were, and what we needed to do to address them. Communication - she was responsive to my requests, and informative in her answers. I've never been through a divorce before, and she was patient in answering my questions. I never felt like she was "running the clock" on me. She always quickly got back to me - whether by email or phone - so I always knew what was going on with my case. I did my research - I spoke with 11 attorneys before going with her and her firm and never doubted my choice. I wanted someone who would be my advocate, and who would fight for the things that were important to me. Time with my kids was the most important, and she assured me that there would be no problems there. As far as maintenance - she worked to get a fair plan in place where my ex- could get on her feet, and I could get on with my life. I strongly recommend Lauren to handle your case. This is the kind of person you want in your corner, especially when you feel like "everyone is against you", and no one is listening to you. Not only that, but she has a broad legal background, and can advise on other things that could impact your case, that you might not have been thinking of."

An attorney with "heart". . .
Lauren Harutun helped bring peace back into my life and my children's. I had a very volatile divorce and spent 9 unsettling years without a valid parenting plan. She helped us work through the issues and helped me provide a more stable environment for my children. She went above and beyond for me.

Our experience
Lauren was great in helping my husband and I with our post decree motions with my ex-husband. She kept us informed and answered all of our questions. We have previoulsy had experiences with attorneys that left us feeling like they didn't care about the outcome, Lauren really cared about us and our family and what was best for our children. I highly recommend her.

Divorce and separation Attorney | Mar 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter

Family Attorney | May 24
Relationship: Co-worker
"Lauren worked on opposite sides of me on several case. Her compassion, cooperative spirit and legal acumen were so impressive I knew I wanted to work along side of her in the future. She is top notch."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Dec 16
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Lauren is highly capable and skilled beyond her years. Likely, this is due to the fact that she has great divergent experience in the law. In the case we co-counseled, she displayed remarkable abilities in the court room; a command of the facts and the applicable law; and a tenacity in submitting her clients issues to the court. This is one great trial lawyer."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Aug 13
Relationship: Co-worker

Now having joined Lauren at her practice, I get to observe on a daily basis her professionalism and strong advocacy for her clients. Lauren works tirelessly for her clients to attain the best result. Lauren is also someone I can consult with on various legal issues as she is extremely knowledgable."
Divorce and separation Attorney | Oct 31
Relationship: Co-worker
"Lauren is the epitome of what a child-advocate and divorce attorney should be. She is resolution-oriented while having the unique ability of litigating matters that need resolution. I work with Lauren on a daily basis, and the compassion, commitment and dedication that she shows to clients every day is inspiring."
