After unexpectedly being served with divorce papers, I needed to retain an attorney. After searching online for divorce lawyers in my area, and talking with a couple of them, I was fortunate enough to find Laura Schantz. Laura is absolutely amazing, not just as a top notch attorney, but as a person as well. It seems as if that should be a "no-brainer", but after consulting with a couple of other lawyers that were indifferent, I really appreciated the level of caring and professional expertise of Laura and the rest of the people in her firm as well as the skill she exhibited in negotiating an extremely fair result for me. Laura is an honest, smart, diligent, compassionate, no-nonsense attorney with an incredible attention to detail.. From our first consultation she listened, really listened to what my situation was. She asked meaningful questions and worked with me on what results I wanted to achieve as well as educating me on what would be more realistic results. Laura, as well as the members of her team (Julie and Kaylee) that were working with me were always friendly, caring and on top of everything. Whether it was sending or returning emails or phone calls to me or the opposing counsel, to checking in and making sure that I was doing okay, they were always there. This is the standard operating procedure for her and all those that I worked with in her firm. After seeing the experience that other people have had to put up with in dealing with their lawyers, I highly recommend Laura. She is an amazing attorney and more importantly, an amazingly honest person. I can not thank her, Julie or Kaylee enough.
