I was recommended Pamela by another mother going through custody and CPS false reporting. After the interview with Attorney Pamela. She reviewed my case with a short noticed that trial would be in 30 days. I felt confident and quickly hired Attorney Pamela. I felt very confident that I called Attorney Pamela one a week, I had no worries that my case was in good hands. I had two days of trail, well-organized, a list of witnesses - Yes! Pamela had to move fast on my case. Two days and Pamela was great in asking all the right questions, reviewed all documents and on time. An honest, hard working, well prepared to a last minute trial. I was given custody in a small increment but at the mediation meeting two weeks after the trail. The other party decided/willingly to share 50 - 50 joint custody.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS ATTORNEY! This woman represented my wife in her move away case. She stated that she felt bad for my wife considering at the time she was 7 months pregnant, and new she would need legal representation for such a complex case. My wife being desperate for help paid her a discounted retainer fee of $1650 ...not the full amount of $2000 due to a payment plan that both parties agreed on. For 2 months my wife continuously reaches out to Mrs. Lauser pertaining the case, each time her emails weren't returned for 2-3 days. When the emails were returned Mrs. Lauser would always reply, "let's just wait and see how it goes". The original pleading for my wife's case was filed by my wife even though at that point she was represented by Mrs. Lauser. Mrs. Lauser had my pregnant wife drive to the court house and get the original orders as well as file the new pleading.
The entire time of representation, Mrs. Lauser never once tried to reach out to my wife's ex husband to try and settle the case outside of court. She never once reached out for anything. My wife's ex husband was hospitalized on 2 separate occasions, and never once did Mrs. Lauser file any paperwork with the court prior to the court date to inform the judge of the new circumstances.
When my wife finally went to court Mrs. Lauser informed my wife that she hadn't read the mediation report, she asked my wife if she had a copy of the mediation report, and my wife said no. She than says she's going to go get a copy from the court. This entire Mrs. Lauser is gone, there was no preparation for the hearing, there was no strategy, there was nothing. When Mrs. Lauser finally showed up for the actual hearing, she went on to lie to the judge about myself, and my wife's ex husband. She seemed confused, and all over the place. It was a complete and utter joke and in the end the judge sided with the mediator. The mediation report was in favor of my wife's ex husband.
Mrs. Lauser is a devil. She proclaims to be a Christian but in actuality she is a snake praying on vounersble families in desperate need of help with the family law system. Please stay away from this Attorney. You would have better luck going in alone. She's a horrible lady and we have reported her to the State Bar Association. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!

Pamela is an amazing attorney. She not only is very powerful in court but she is very supportive of her clients choices. She doesn't give up and she will do all she can to make sure you get the help you need and she guides her clients in the right direction. I don't know what I would have done without her. She won my case and saved my life and the lives of my family. Hands down the best family law attorney I have ever seen.

Mrs. Lauser is responsive and fast acting, she knows exactly what to do in even the most horrific and odd cases scenarios. She is honest and dignified and expects the same of her clients, she is caring and compassionate throughout the entire process. Mrs. Lauser is the reason I was able to protect my kids and get them out of a tough situation, she has changed my family's lives exponentially and I consider her to be a family friend after all she has guided me through. I appreciate that she values integrity as I want to work with an Attorney who is honest and never tries to omit or alter the truth. When dealing in Family Law and Custody issues she is the best, not just because she changed my life and the lives of countless others, but because in contacting literally every Attorney in the area after explaining my case, most of them advised me to hire Mrs. Lauser, she is well versed at handling the toughest of cases and everyone in the business knows it.

Mrs. Lauser was great! She was patient with me and took the time to listen. She was knowledgeable and responded to calls and questions in a timely manner. She explained the options and discussed the best course of action. In the courtroom she was professional and a quick thinker. She was thorough and made each and every point clearly and concisely. After years in and out of the courtroom my nightmare is over and I came out on top. Mrs. Lauser was awesome!

Mrs. Lauser has done work for my wife and I and she was very efficient at explaining the processes involved for my mom's power of attorney and getting the job done. The power of attorney allowed me to be able to take care of my mom's legal and financial needs along with her medical needs (my mother had a form of dementia) and she was not able to make good decisions for herself. We were extremely pleased by the way Mrs. Lauser helped us in getting through the court process and getting the results we needed.

As someone well-acquainted with Ms. Lauser, I can say that she is a zealous advocate with a heart of gold, and that anyone criticizing her efforts on their behalf is simply too ignorant of their own faults to see the true value of her efforts or has an unwarranted axe to grind. I have had Ms.Lauser settle several legal disputes for me over the past few years, everything from false paternity accusations to civil matters, and her advice has always been sound and well-informed. I am also familiar with her start in the law nearly 10 years ago as a law student learning in another firm, and I can tell you that she has worked hard over the years to distance herself from the petty and dishonest behavior of many other attorneys in Martinez. She is as honest as the day is long and walks the walk when it comes to the ethical treatment of her clients. She takes clients in the toughest of situations and works tirelessly to help fix the messes they've made of their lives. The rest is up to them.
