I retained Alexandra as a substitution in my forever on going case, which has been absolutely ridiculous because my ex is fighting over $450 a month in support yet has given his attorney Roger Rombro $150,000 in fees. Rombro had something against my attorney so I went to Alexandra. I interviewed 8 attorneys before selecting her and was very happy with her services. She made me feel at ease, that I wasn't going to be ripped off or taken advantage of because my case wasn't on emotion with custody or how much more I could get it was based on my rights as a mother and protecting myself. I needed someone to keep me level headed and make wise decisions against an irrational ex husband of 5 years. She did just that. This is the place you want to go if you want to feel empowered and know that the empowerment you get isn't going to be used to run up a massive bill.

I can't speak highly enough about Alexandra....u can read other posts and I could tell you ALL of the same things....BUT what I see that was NOT mentioned is how when you hire Alexandra, you get Alexandra! My ex hired what i like to call "the ugly kardashian"..... However majority of the time we went to court, she would send her "minions" to court for her who had no power to make any decisions. They were just useless bodies standing in the courtroom. My ex was not a priority for his attorney. On the days she did like to grace us w/ her scary presence, she would bring in other attorneys from other firms to help her. That is not how Alexandra operates. Alexandra once told me....."you only bring other attorneys with you when you know you can't get the job done yourself." This was the case with the opposing side 9 times out of 10. This did not happen w/ Alexandra! Also, when I interviewed w/ Alexandra, she told me something that has stuck w/ me and I repeat to all of my divorcing friends.....she said " I'd rather you send your child to college than my dogs to the spa". That quote stuck with me and I can tell you, through the 17 month divorce proceedings, she never nickel and dimed me whatsoever. Remember the ugly kardashian I mentioned? Her final bill was DOUBLE what I paid Alexandra.....and to be honest, Alexandra was a tad more expensive per hour than opposing counsel. But that goes to show you, even tho Alexandra charged me a tiny bit more per hour, in the end she saved me tens of thousands of dollars bc of her MORALS and ETHICS. Her morality goes above and beyond what I could have ever hoped for in hiring a divorce attorney. Even though I was never her only case load, I was always shown that I was priority...even in emergent situatuons which she could have easily ignored me on bc they happened during non-business hours and during the weekend. Alexandra will def know who wrote this and if ANYONE would like to speak to me personally, she has my complete permission to give my phone number to whomever. She literally saved my life and I won't lie, she's fun to talk to as well. Even tho my divorce just settled, the ugly kardashain loves ex partes, so I will never let Alexandra too far out of my sight bc I know she's on my side and she has my back. And bc of that, I can sleep well at night not having to worry about what is going to happen the next day. She is a lifesaver!!!! And sanity saver too!!! And I hope I didn't make her sound soft in this review....because she's a pit bull in the court room!
I hope this review stands out to you and just have a consultation with her and I promise you will get the feeling I got and choose her.

Office scheduled a phone appointment with me at a certain time and I never recieved the call so I called the office myself. She heard me out but seemed a little uninterested in truly assisting. However, she was quickly able to answer all my questions (as someone who knows what to ask, having had a lawyer before) and her staff seems generally on top of their clients' issues. Services on the pricier side, but I'm assuming that's due to the quality of their office and representation.

I have been working with Alexandra for the last year and a half on my divorce which includes highly disputed issues over custody and support among other things. I cannot recommend her highly enough. My case has been very difficult due to a high conflict ex who has played games and attempted to manipulate the system at every single turn. Through it all Alexandra has fought for me with integrity and honesty and an unparalleled knowledge of family law. Her insight and guidance have been indispensable to me through what has been a harrowing ordeal. She is passionate, professional and her instincts and tactics are always brilliant and spot on. I have watched her handle complex disputed matters in court with incredible skill, always getting the proper and just result.
My divorce is likely going to trial in spite of many efforts from Alexandra and myself to settle with my ex. She works hard to settle your case but if you need to go to court she fights aggressively and skillfully and I am confident knowing she is in my corner. I truly don't know what I'd have done without her over the last 18 months and I dont even want to think about it!!
In addition to her skill she is an empathetic and warm individual who truly cares about her clients. She maintains professionalism and integrity and does not tell you what you want to hear but what you need to hear within the context of the law, and this is why I've come to trust her counsel without reservation. When you hire Ms. Lavinsky, you will have a powerful and highly skilled advocate who will work hard and get you results.

I retained Ms. Lavinsky regarding a very difficult issue involving divorce and child visitation. The depth of her knowledge and working expertise of the legal system provided confidence; which reduced my stress, for a successful outcome of my case. She is still retained as my attorney and I continue to have trust and confidence in her legal knowledge and courtroom abilities.

Alexandra goes up and beyond any attorney I have ever met. She is truly remarkable in what she does. She knows how to fight for you and protect you. She represented me in a divorce with an ex that was more than dishonest. She really is an angel in my life and anybody that get's to be her client is truly blessed. With two children and an ex that refused to take any responsibility, she helped me see victory. She was worth every penny! If you are dealing with a difficult divorce and need someone to fight for you, go no where else. Alexandra is truly the best divorce attorney out there!

My experience in working with Alexandra on my divorce was excellent.
I had virtually no knowledge about the process and the steps I needed to take - Alexandra and her team were exactly what I needed. Highly knowledgeable and diligent in attention to detail, her office exceeded my expectations in every aspect of representing my interests.
During this rather emotional time of my life, I especially appreciated the balance Alexandra struck in handling my case. While always maintaining the voice of reason with my best interests in mind, she always fiercely represent my demands - even those that I now, in retrospect, feel were unreasonable.
Having her office in my corner during this unpleasant time was a blessing. I would 100% hire her again.

I had 2 other attorneys on my case prior. Alexandra quickly got up to speed, has a rapport with Los Angeles Judges, listens well and is perceptive. Mid-sentence she’ll know what you’re babbling on about. She knows family law inside and out, understood my desires as a father and diplomatically laid out possible options/outcomes/remedies. Alexandra’s keen knowledge of family law objected the opposing side’s baseless accusations and filed an Objection to strike all pages that exceeded the legal Response Declaration page limit too.
On the day of the hearing Alexandra greeted me off the elevator and was right by my side; which means the world to a person about to hear their kid’s future. Alexandra even got me an agreement to a “meet and greet” with the other man my son calls dad, before we even walked into the court room! During the hearing I thought things weren’t going in my favor, Alexandra calmed me, whispering “You okay”? “Don’t worry”. The judge ultimately ordered joint legal custody and exactly equal parenting time.
If you don’t give up on your kid(s), hire the right representation (Alexandra) you can go from being an every other weekend Dad to having your kids equally! I walked out of the court room hugged my wife and then Alexandra unexpectedly hugged us both. We won! I will never again go through any custody matter without Alexandra by my side.
If you are a Dad/Parent up against the wall and limited by your court order do your kid(s) a favor and hire Alexandra!

Words can not express what am amazing job Ms. Lavinsky did on my divorce. My ex- husband is a lawyer and I was very terrified about the legal process in California. So, during the most difficult time in my life, I had the great fortune to have this incredible, client advocate representing me. Ms. Lavinsky knows the law inside out and was true warrior in my legal battle. I put my trust in Ms. Lavinsky with my future and she NEVER let me down.
Ms. Lavinsky is my hero and I highly recommend her to any person who is in need of council. She is a legal genius and is a credit to her profession. God bless her!

Had my free consultation today and it was one of the best experiences with a lawyer I have ever had. Alexandra was very helpful and even gave me some good information to take home. Her staff was extremely nice and the entire time I was there I felt important. She really cares and looks out for your best interests not to mention has a lot of experience in family law. Highly recommended if you are looking for the best!
