Divorce
Lacey was extremely helpful throughout my divorce. She kept me grounded as well as sane through such a tough time. Emotions are very high when you are dealing with divorce and she was always quick to respond to emails, call me back, send documents, etc. Not to mention her advise was on point with all situations that arose. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to handle your case!!

Competent, intelligent, compassionate
My case was a complex case that involved the entire gamut of divorce issues, from restraining orders to child custody games by my ex-spouse to vocational reports and pension issues. Ms. Sanchez saved my sanity. She knew how to approach each issue and carefully walked me through all my options. Ultimately, I truly believe she saved my life. I highly recommend her for family law issues.

Professional, kind, hard working
Living in another country presented extra challenges when proceeding with a divorce from my spouse of 25 years. Lacey and her team were immediately supportive, gave me the information and assistance I needed, and were available to answer questions. They held my hand, so to speak, though a painful but necessary action. When the time came for us to sit at the table with my soon-to-be ex-spouse Lacey was a consummate professional. I felt like I had someone on my side looking out for my best interests. She asked questions and helped me process through decisions. She was a strong voice for me.

Wonderful attorney!
Lacey helped me with a complicated custody proceeding. She was honest, dependable and absolute dynamite in court. She helped me get exactly what I was requesting and handled all of my issues with ease. Would recommend to anyone looking for a GREAT family law attorney. I can't sing her praises enough.

Professional, Responsive and Reputable
Lacey was extremely understanding, supportive and appropriately aggressive in the divorce process. I am so pleased I ended up with Lerandeau & Lerandeau and they set me up with Lacey Sanchez as my attorney. She was prompt with responses, ensured I had all of the information throughout the process, gave me realistic advice (even when hard to hear), and seemed to genuinely care about me as a person. I highly recommend this firm and Lacey Sanchez through the divorce process.

Amazing Family Law Attorney
I highly recommend Lacey Sanchez. She was available and always took time to answer my questions. We had a very heated meeting with my ex and his attorney, at one point opposing counsel was packing up to leave (because they were not getting their way). Her ability to remain calm and focused kept the meeting on track. I really felt like she listened to me and my concerns and worked towards addressing them. She was professional and I trusted her completely. Communication was always open; Lacey made sure I always knew where things were at with my divorce. Of course I wasn't thrilled to owe my ex money, but Lacey's knowledge of my finances kept my ex out of my State retirement. She worked to come up with creative solutions for the equalizing payment that in the end worked well for me and my ex.

Attorney Lacey N Sanchez did an excellent job
My ex-husband had stopped making support payments. Ms. Sanchez agreed to take him to court for me to get the payments in arrears re-paid and to ensure that the support payments continue into the future. She was professional and competent in court. She was able to get me exactly what I felt was owed to me. I admire the way she was able to understand the emotional situation, yet maintain a calm objectivity that allowed her to get to the essence of the situation resulting in a win for me. I am happy to recommend her. Thank you, Lacey.

Honest, Diligent and Truly Supportive Family Lawyer
Lacey has provided excellent representation for myself and my daughter in the midst of a very difficult situation. Nothing makes this process easy or OK, but Lacey was able to provide honest and accurate legal representation while also providing guidance and genuine support to assist in my decision-making process. I have never been involved in anything so complicated and emotional as a custody situation, and Lacey was able to provide the information and matter-of-fact representation I needed to get me through the court hearings. If the prices are in your budget, or even if they aren't, her services are invaluable!

My experiance
What my lawyer did for me was turn a devastating situation into a situation that I could at least live with.My ex was trying to move with my five year old to another city and what Lacy and her team did was make my ex a flight risk so at least she couldn't just take off and start a new life four hours a way and make me a every other weekend Dad.Now we share 50/50 and although not seeing your child 100% of the time is hard at least I have him half the time. I would recommend Lacy for these reasons ,stays on top of your case and keeps you in the loop , fight for you ,and I believe for a lawyer she has a soul. It could have been very ugly if I had not hired her team.

I highly recommend
Lacey was courteous, thorough and beyond helpful. Yes, they are pricey but costs are identified up front. There wasn't any surprise charges. Separation is scary and nerve wrecking. All I wanted was to make sure my daughter was safe and taken care of but i didn't know where to start or what a lot of the terms on paper meant. Having a lawyer who listened, responded quickly and explained everything made the process easier. I couldn't have gotten through this without her.

restraing order
Lacey did an outstanding job handling our case we were very pleased with how she study and prepared our case and defended our integrity we are very satisfied

Great Attorney!
Lacey N. Sanchez is a highly professional and knowledgable Attorney. She fought for my rights as a parent overcoming false allegations from my former spouse, and stood up to an overbearing arogant over confident Attorney who represented my former spouse. She was able to over come the false allegations filed against me, where I was awarded equal time with my child as requested. Basically Lacey fought for me and I was awarded everything I was requesting as well clearing my name in open court. If your in need of a sharp Attorney for family court Lacey would be a great choice! Thank you Lacey

Thank you Lacey
I am very appreciative of the professional manner in which she handled my case. She is an excellent attorney who always responded to my questions or concerns. She was knowledgeable and informed me of the procedures and process of my case. She met with me on around my schedule and wanted to make sure all information was correct. From the beginning, I felt comfortable and confident with her as my lawyer. This can be stressful but she was calming and informative which helped keep me at ease and confident with my choice of a lawyer. I would highly recommend her to friends and family members. I would also use her services again if needed.

I'm so very grateful for Lacey and her services.
I seeked out Lacey's help the day before my court hearing; I was overwhelmed and very emotional. She worked with me and was accomadating to my financial needs. I was very pleased and relieved with her by my side for the hearing. She argued my case with the court and succeeded by getting me what I had hoped for in my custody battle. I could not be more grateful for her help and professional manor in which she did so. Thanks again to LACEY and the Law Firm LERANDEAU and LERANDEAU for helping me and my daughter stay together.

Marital Settlement Agreement
Lacey helped me review all my options for reaching a settlement agreement with my spouse and provided sound advice for settlement of assets and liabilities. She was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to all my questions and concerns.

She’s as useless as a single chopstick.
Took my consultation money just to end up telling she can’t help me on my custody case. Overpriced and overrated, don’t waste your time and money!
