Paul Saucy of Saucy & Saucy, P.C. had handled the trial portion of my divorce case beautifully and effectively.
The moment Lauren Saucy learned that the opposing party had filed a notice to appeal, she called me to explain the appeals process and asked if I wanted her to represent me. I, of course, said yes, and from that time on I could not have been better represented through the appeal.
Lauren mastered the case early on and suggested the most likely outcome range. She provided well-thought analysis of the opposition's arguments and her counter-arguments. She was spot-on identifying important points and downplaying fluff. She guided me through a settlement offer that was never acknowledged. At each step, she kept me apprised of upcoming events.
Lauren's brief was strong, straightforward, and provided a great legal analysis of the case. I could clearly see the strength of her legal reasoning and writing skills.
By report, she provided strong oral argument and knocked down the opposing attorney's "misstatements of fact" in a calm manner. Throughout the lengthy appeal process, Lauren remain professional and gracious, and she, Paul Saucy, and their office staff worked to help me through the process.
Lauren called as soon as she received the Appellate Court decision. I could not be happier with the outcome. Even now, Lauren continues to fight for me to recoup attorney's fees and costs. I am certain that Lauren Saucy is the best divorce appellate attorney!

Lauren represented me in a very complex and contentious case, including a transfer from out of state, and custody issues. I first met with her when I was still pro se, and she advised me on a couple court filings. She was efficient, knowledgeable, and I could tell she would be cool in the face of pressure. When the case ramped up, I knew Lauren was who I wanted to represent me.
My case ended up with a full-day trial, and I would also like to address Lauren's approach to court. She is strategic, thorough, and highly focused in what she chooses to address in cross-examination. She does not get emotionally entangled in the case, but maintains a laser focus, and will calm you down if you begin letting emotions get the best of you (which is easy to do in cases involving children, large amounts of money, etc.). She is clear at all times that she cannot predict outcomes of the court system, but she also gives her honest assessment of the outcomes. In my case, she was right or very near right in each matter. She works hard to understand your goals, but also is knowledgeable about what is realistic. She also aims to fully understand her opponents, and works hard to ensure you present yourself well before the judge.
If there is an avenue that does not seem fruitful or does not seem beneficial to your case, she will advise you of this. Ultimately you are in charge of your case, but there is nobody better to legally represent your interests in custody and divorce matters than Lauren Saucy.

I am so grateful I found Lauren. She was recommended to me by six separate individuals, and was my favorite from several I consulted when looking to retain someone. She knows this area of the law to its finest details, and gave excellent guidance and advice throughout the process. She remained calm, cool, and focused in the face of a case with myriad frustrations and delays, and is the reason my divorce ended with a good, fair settlement. She is the best!

Lauren is excellent. She worked with me on a difficult divorce and helped me and my spouse come to workable terms in a very complex situation. This was not a cookie cutter divorce in any way. Lauren was able to review complex documents and make them understandable to me. She was also able to write original understandable documents to deal with our unique situation. She charged very fairly as well, and was much less expensive than my spouse's attorney.

If you want to get things done, and done RIGHT, hire Saucy & Saucy. In a world filled with deceit and mediocrity, Saucy & Saucy are an oasis of integrity, honesty and hard work. They are aggressive, yes, not rude, not unkind, but aggressive- they will go after what needs to get done and WILL GET IT DONE. During my case, this firm stayed focused and on task, with CONSTANT communication. They coached me to be a better version of myself! They did not let me give up the thousand times I wanted to, because they knew I needed validation- they understood that the years of being undermined as a parent and as a woman, had taken a toll on me. Saucy & Saucy's constant support and relentless pursuit of justice have helped me gain confidence in life and in myself to be trusting and to become the strong woman I once was. My case was very complex, with a very conniving, manipulative, unethical spouse. As I drowned in dispair, they saw through the mess of finances that my husband had created. They organized, tracked and made sense of all the complex transactions. Yes, they are expensive. And they ought to be! They provide first class service. Every time we had to appear against the other party, they would be timely and well prepared with all necessary documents thoroughly and neatly organized. While the opposing parties would write snide comments and rants in their emails, Saucy & Saucy remained professional, curteous, and still strong. A class act. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my ordeal, and I have this incredible staff to thank! The judge required my ex to reimburse to me ALL attorney fees charged from Saucy & Saucy office. WOW. I live eternally grateful!

Lauren was always available when I needed her. Always standing up for me. She had great ideas and approach to my case is what lead to me winning custody. I was pleased that she was willing to keep prices in mind too, and she believes in sticking up for the "good guy".

Lauren has handled my divorce and then a child custody case a year later. In both matters she was always available to answer questions and to give me best case and worse case in every situation. She fought very hard for me and got what I felt was the best possible outcome for my divorce. In the child custody case she was able to find great options in a very difficult case to get me full custody of my son. I would recommend her for any family matter. She is compassionate, empathetic and caring. She will do the very best to get the results you desire. Her honesty and professionalism is the very best. As I told her " She Rocks".

I have been with 5 lawyers since my divorce in 2000, before this time I have never seen a lawyer in my life. 1st lawyer I think was working for my ex.
2nd lawyer - I was audited by the IRS because the 1st lawyer had omitted to put a paragraph in the divorce papers. 2nd lawyer said 'easy fix', but after waiting for nearly a year and nothing happening, I fired that one.
3rd lawyer hired to take over and after a lot of $$ and time the issue was corrected. I did come out of it knowing more about the lawyers personal life than they did of mine.
4th lawyer was hired as I am reaching retirement age and wanted to end alimony payments. In the end they let me go as they were not familiar with the judges and lawyers in my county...BUT they recommended Lauren Saucy.
The first thing I noticed about Lauren is she listened to what I was saying and kept things on track. She didn't sugar coat anything. She stated the facts, the way things could go good or bad. In other words told me the truth. I respect that in people. Lauren wrote a strong letter to my ex, based on facts and truth of the situation. She explained exactly how things would go even if I had to go to court. The ex agreed and signed off on the alimony payments and I am a free man. I can go on now and live out the rest of my life without this issue hanging over me. Thank you Lauren. As this all happened so fast I didn't get a chance to thank her in person. So I plan one more visit to her office because I want to thank her in person. I feel I owe this to her.

I worked with Paul Saucy on my divorce. As my case ended up needing to go to trial, his legal partner, Lauren Saucy, spoke with me at length as she reviewed my documents and prepared data for the trial. She quickly sensed the details of my case, and mastered the intricacies of my financial records and multitude of data. She was supportive and walked me through the lineup of trial events to expect, so that, when I did go to court, I felt as comfortable as I could have. I understand that her attention to detail is critical so that there would be little, if anything, for the opposing side to claim on appeal. Lauren's expertise meant that our exhibits at trial were clear and pertinent, and that was critical in telling my story, and in the satisfying outcome.

I approched Lauren Sauscy to help me find a parenting place that would hold up in court with my work schedule. From start to finsh Lauren was in my side placing options infront of myself and took time to explain the why. Lauren would keep me informed of everything happening and why. She also took time to help me understand the ruels of oregons parenting plans and also informing me of the ruels that my ex would have to uphold to. Lauren is type A person she dosent just sit back to see what the out come will be. she is very proactive Lawyer with a skilled team. My personal opition is you are only as good as your team. Lauren Saucy has a very strong team and they work together very well. One thing I will note about Lauren is how upfront she is going to be. she will tell you how it is and how it needed to be. If you follow her plan to a tee you will be prepared on your day in court. Thankfully I never made it to court, her skills were such that we were able to come up with a win for everyone involved. If you are looking to be treated fair and have an out come than Lauren will do more for you as a Lawyer than 10 of them combinded. All I can say you will get what you pay for. On that Note Lauren dosent miss use you funds she is about staying on budget and will only spend what she has to.
Thanks for read this review.
