I had a 9/10 complicated Probate case and Lara handled it wonderfully! My first attorney messed up nearly every aspect of the case and dragged it out for nearly 3 years. He abandoned my case just prior to the trial date. In in need of an immediate attorney to represent me, I asked Lara to pick up the case. Lara quickly (and I mean quickly!) got up to speed with the case and was able to straighten out most of the mess that the case was in . She was able to prepare the case and conduct the depositions so that we could go to trial within 9 months. And we WON!!! Lara and her staff were awesome! After the case was over we still had some legal issues to iron out with the county recorder's office, and Lara stayed with me for that. I love working with Lara and her staff! They are so diligent, knowledgeable, kind, personable, honest, and up-front...all adjectives that are not usually used to describe attorneys. There were times when I needed someone to "talk me off the ledge" when I was panicking about the case and the trial, and there was always someone from Lara's office who was there to give me perspective about the process. Lara is the epitome of effectiveness and kindness. She never puts anyone in a defensive position (even the opponent) and yet is very effective at obtaining information at a deposition or cross-examining at trial. It's amazing how she does that! Even if we had lost our case, I would feel the same about Lara and her staff. Would I use Lara again? Without hesitation!
