Very Grateful
Laura is not only an exceptional lawyer, she is an exceptional person. She listens, takes notes, and clearly relays your feelings, as a person, as a mom, and as a client in her filings and her work in the courtroom. Her staff is friendly and courteous. Her partner, Nedda Ghandi, is also wonderful, and they work well as a team to get the results that one hopes to get. I am so grateful that I had the pleasure of working with this law firm, when attorneys and court are never the place one wants to be. THANK YOU!

I would not recommend this attorney.
I hired this attorney with the hope that she would represent me how I wanted to be represented. My case was a relocation case. While I was able to relocate, I told my attorney in my original consultation and also, a couple other times when we had spoke that I would not be able to take on the responsibility of paying for all transportation costs for my child to visit his father in the state of Nevada. On my court date, not only did she NOT appear for me, (she sent her colleague) but she agreed on my behalf to me paying for all transportation costs! Now I am receiving threats from my son's father that he wants to go back into court and file for a custody change. File for my child to move back to the state of Nevada with or without me. I have tried to speak with Laura on this matter and she will not communicate with me since I still owe her a balance on my account. I am very devastated by the legal representation I received from this attorney and would highly recommend that people taking their business elsewhere. Since that is what I'll be doing to hopefully FIX what Ms. Deeter and her colleague messed up.
