Highest ethical standards
Lauren Garner protected me against assaults on a family trust by exploitative relatives and unscrupulous attorneys. She fought admirably and ethically for six years. It was long and arduous because the opposing, unscrupulous attorneys (one of whom has been reported to the bar multiple times) tied things up in the court with numerous expensive tricks, threats, and maneuverings-- all of which ultimately failed. She always maintained the highest standard of ethics and fought with intelligence. Eventually she was able to negotiate a settlement that was as fair to me as possible given the fraud perpetrated by the other side and bring an end to a battle that had been abusive of me and the memory of my father who had established the trust. Had she not been there for me, nothing would have been left of a trust established by my own father. She is sympathetic, well organized, knowledgeable. I can not speak too highly of her.

I can't say enough good things about Lauren Garner as an expert in probate law. My family came to her at a very emotional time to evaluate a very dramatic situation and the advice and counsel she provided in an initial consult brought both legal and emotional clarity and understanding of our situation. This helped us to resolve the issues and move on. I recommend her sound advice and counsel to anyone. I was very impressed with her integrity and her groundedness in dealing with very difficult emotional terrain concerning two deaths.
