Lani Baron is truly the most compassionate and competent lawyer I have ever worked with. She is passionate about helping others, and committed to excellence. Her company offers very competitive pricing, and goes above and beyond to deliver on their services. I HIGHLY recommend Lani to anyone going through a divorce, or just needing legal counsel.

Very professional and knowledgeable
I was so happy working with Lani. She’s very knowledgeable and kept things peaceful during a contentious event. She provided clear expectations and guided us through the process swiftly. With her expertise, I would feel comfortable referring her to anyone and already have to a few people.

My wife and I worked with Lani and her team to create a post marital agreement and our estate plan after we purchased our new home. Lani was very knowledgeable, and helped us through this process. The office and environment was very professional and sensitive to our situation. I would highly recommend Lani and her team at Alternative Divorce Solutions.
