I've used Laura's services twice now in both my divorce and for a later divorce decree amendment and no doubt will probably need to do so again in the future. She's protected my interests to the fullest extent in both cases and I came out ahead each time. As a father, she fought for my interests during my divorce proceeding and I was awarded joint custody with near equal visitation and did so for the same investment as other attorneys had offered even after they told me to expect no custody and the standard "every other weekend" visitation, simply because I was "the father". I wouldn't have the amazing relationship with my daughter I have now if not for Laura's fight for my legal rights under Oregon law and her unwillingness to ever settle for substandard expectations. Her support staff is equally as professional and caring and they serve as a direct reflection of her high standards. My life is better for having used Laura and I would never use or recommend any other attorney for any Family Law needs.

Laura and her team were very honest, skillful, and I would say exceptional in getting my property settlement completed. Laura updated me on a regular basis, she expedited the negotiations quickly, and she delivered a very good outcome much faster than I anticipated.
I would highly recommend her and her team!

I hired Laura to help me with my no contest divorce after trying to do the paperwork myself and realizing I was in over my head. From my first consultation she put me at ease and assured me that everything would go as planned. Laura and her team were very good in keeping me up to date and my ex even liked her. Exceptional service all around and I will seek her firm out if in need of legal council and recommend her to friends.

Laura is amazing!!!! She has great attention to detail and helps choose what information is important- unlike some lawyers who try to get couples to fight to keep the battle going. She is practical and precise!!! Laura helps make a terrible situation tolerable. Thank you Laura!!!!!!!!! You're the best!!!!!

Laura Schantz is an outstanding divorce lawyer and I highly recommend her and her firm. I was blind-sided with a divorce and unable to see clearly. With Laura's years of experience and knowledgeable staff, she guided me through an ugly chapter in my life and help me and my children move forward with stability and a working foundation.

It is with sincere appreciation to Laura Schantz for the extraordinary effort and support she put forth in my dissolution of marriage. Her tenure experience, professionalism, and attention to detail from the initial consultation through mediation, and closure. My experience with Laura is characterized as best-in-class in support of my legal rights during these difficult times. I would highly recommend the representation of Schantz Law legal services to all others.

Laura was highly recommended to me by more than one person. She is extremely knowledgable, personable, and I love her no-nonsense approach to the judicial system! It's refreshing and affordable! If you want an excellent attorney who tells it how it is and puts children first, then you have found the perfect attorney. Laura practices in both Oregon and Washington. If you've ever felt intimidated by the law or lawyers~ talk with Laura and see for yourself how down-to-earth she is. :0)

Laura did a great job for me. She knows the law and the different judges in the Portland metro area. She helped me keep my attorney bills down by helping me try to work with my ex wife as much as possible. When it became obvious that I couldn't work with my ex wife Laura stepped up and was very good at protecting my rights as a father. At the end of it all she helped me negotiate a good parenting plan and my bill was less then a third of what my ex wife's bill was. As I look back she didn't cost me money she saved me money! Ten years later I have a great relationship with my daughter thanks in part to Laura. Laura is a beautiful person on the outside as well as the inside!

As a high income guy, I was scared about the amount/timeframe of spousal support that I would have to pay. After comparing what my friends in similar situations have had to pay, when using other attorneys, I am extremely pleased with the settlement that Laura negotiated for me. I actually have a life.

Avoid this attorney if you value your money, time and future. Laura does not appear to understand the law. The case which she attempted to represent me on was laughed out of court. Has she known anything about the law or researched the facts, it would have never gone to court. However, she still felt obligated to charge me a ridiculous amount of money
