Worth every penny!
My ex-husband reopened our child support case in September 2020. After my prior attorney had a family emeergency, in June 2021 I hired Lorien on the recommendation of attorney I work closely with at my job. My case took another full year to be completed, but Lorien was absolutely incredible that entire time. She worked all hours of the day and was always quick with her responses. I truly felt like she was invested in my case. The outcome of my case was FAR better than I could have ever imagined all thanks to Lorien's diligence and skill. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again and will definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

Above and Beyond
After hiring the Willick Law Group, Lorien Cole was the attorney assigned to work on my case. She immediately struck me as someone who would help me understand both the merits of my case and how to handle the psychological pressure of my divorce. Despite my prenuptial agreement, I was being sued and told that my prenuptial agreement would not stand by my ex-wife's counsel. Lorien did not agree. She helped me by being my sounding board, finding answers, providing perspective, and helping me complete the financial disclosure forms. At times, I pulled all-nighters helping to provide my responses to motions filed against me, and Lorien was always available to alleviate the tedium. When we received the outcome I wanted in my divorce, she was especially helpful in listening to my cathartic reaction. I was lucky to have a great lawyer who gave me sage advice and truly cared about me and my divorce outcome.

Super Lawyer
I hired Lorien Cole and the Willick Law Group after having previously worked with two other law firms in Las Vegas. What I immediately noticed about Ms. Cole was her professionalism and her deep commitment to my case. She has a thorough understanding of the law and she works tirelessly to get the best results for her clients. Ms. Cole deftly handled my very difficult divorce case, which included complicated custody issues, from start to finish. I ultimately ended up with a result that was better than I had expected. As a practicing lawyer of more than 20 years, I can confidently say that Ms. Cole is among the top tier of lawyers I have encountered and I highly recommend her.

End your search. This IS the right lawyer for you to hire.
I didn’t think it would be possible for anyone to make divorce a more enjoyable experience, but Lorien Cole specializes in the impossible. Not only is she an intelligent and highly professional attorney, but possesses a warmth and integrity that many professionals in this field lack. Lorien works to preserve as much as possible the family relationship during the most difficult transition a family has to go through. Of important note is the high level of finance acumen she maintains, a trait severely lacking in many family law attorneys in this town. Her undergrad background is in finance and she has a sound and capable grasp of financial issues. Something you’re rarely told to look for in a family law attorney but it is a skill that can be as important as their legal savvy.

Best Attorney ever!
I'm not even sure where to begin our interactions with Lorien as our attorney. I guess I could start when we hired her for a visitation case so my Neice I raise could get to see her two little brothers. Lorien took on a case that had a lot of complicated twists to it and she always kept a positive outlook on things and was very honest. At times it looked like things wouldn't go our way but because of Lorien, it did. We then turned around and hired her again for an immigration for my husband. This is where I really knew we scored gold having her on our side. You see immigration isn't easy, as a US citizen I often felt defeated during this process but Lorien never gave up and did everything she could to find resources and people who could help the case along. I can never thank her enough for all that she did for our family to be where we are today.

Top Notch Lawyer
Lorien represented me in both a guardianship and a child support case. She successfully argued my cases and I was overjoyed by the outcome. Lorien is knowledgeable about the family court system and kept me informed throughout the process, she returned emails and phone calls very quickly and I always feel that she dealt with my issues promptly. The staff in law office is courteous, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Lorien for all your family court needs.

Best attorney hands down
My ex and his attorney totally bullied me and my previous attorney. I watched my attorney get nervous and back down and in turn I got screwed over in my divorce. We had our divorce decree but then we began fighting over the court order. I couldn't take it anymore and ended up searching around for another attorney and ended up hiring Lorien Cole. She was AMAZING!!! The moment I hired her she was all action. Viewing court tapes and reviewing transcripts and the best part was watching my ex and his attorney back down for the first time (after being bullied) for months. Lorien took so much burden from my shoulders. She is smart, professional, and she's a fighter. If only I had found her sooner...I truly believe that you get what you pay for and she was COMPLETELY worth it. 100% recommended
