I came to Lauren with very specific and detailed business requirements around the contracts I needed created. I had knowledge from my procurement background about what should be included and what to protect myself from, but needed an expert to ensure I had contracts that completely protected me. Coming from 18 years in Fortune 100 companies, I had very high expectations.
Lauren was very patient and truly listed to my needs, even repeating what she understood me saying and offering me even more ways to protect myself. It was not the typical attorney experience I have had in the past. She was down-to-earth, humble, funny yet still extremely professional and obviously was an expert in her profession.
We reviewed my needs and she gave me a delivery date that was faster than I would have thought possible. And she delivered exactly as she said she would. She was completely open to changes and feedback, and truly meant it. The deliverables were some of the highest quality I have received in 18+ years.
Lauren writes contracts that are in "plain English." I could actually understand what it said without interpretation! I knew this is something my clients would appreciate as well so they knew I was being clear, straightforward, honest and understood exactly what they were agreeing to. Being honest and authentic is part of my brand, so these contracts continued to represent my brand. Plus, I have full confidence that I can easily explain the contracts to them based on how she wrote them.
I would absolutely recommend Lauren. I will indeed be using her again the next time I need a contract. In fact, I recommend her to everyone I know that is even considering putting an agreement or contract in place. Please know that someone has to really exceed my expectations for me to recommend them since if I give a poor referral, I believe it reflects negatively on me. Lauren will wow you and anyone you refer her to.
If you want someone who truly cares and listens, exceeds your business requirements and expectations, has extremely outstanding customer service and delivers highly impactful contracts/agreements that are easy to read and highly effective, Lauren is who you want to hire.
I truly felt she cared about me as a person, as well as protecting my business. After you work with her, you'll be recommending her too :)

I have used Lauren as my small business attorney on several occasions over the past year to help me work through contracts questions/issues. As a solopreneur with a corporate background that includes contracts review, I’m extremely picky about dotting i’s and crossing t’s. With Lauren, I’ve been extremely pleased. In each instance, she was highly responsive and professional — always able to fit my need in the timeframe I was hoping. Lauren also quickly understood the nuances I needed for my business, and delivered resulting content/documents and review with the fine-tooth comb required. Recently, she helped me revamp several service agreement documents that had become unwieldy and hard-to-read into a "templatized" package that I will be able to re-use and easily explain to my clients. Thank you Lauren!

Lauren was easy to talk to, fast in response time and thorough.

Lauren has helped me create my engagement letter, employment offer letters as well as craft language to gently remind clients that we need all of the documents we ask for and we cannot accurately provide them the info they need without all of those documents.
I've had her documents reviewed by other attorneys (before the other party signs them) and have been complimented on how well written they are. For myself I like that I understand what is being said and that she walks through everything with me to ensure I understand it and that there are no unaddressed concerns before we agree the document is finalized.

We engaged Lauren to assist us in adding a new stockholder to our corporation who will ultimately become the majority shareholder. Like many small companies, we knew what we wanted to do, but also understood that a change in ownership encompasses a broad variety of issues of which we may or may not be aware. We prepared an initial purchase and sale agreement and then sat down with Lauren to see what we really needed. Lauren spent about 90 minutes asking a lot of probing questions so she could understand the specifics of our situation. She then told us that we needed 2 documents - a purchase and sale agreement and a shareholders agreement - to address the issues unique to our situation. She then quoted a fee to create each of these documents. I agreed to the reasonable fee and asked her to proceed. Within a few days she produced a purchase and sale agreement and within another week a shareholder's agreement came through. Lauren addressed all of our issues and added others which were pertinent not only to our immediate needs, but to the long term consequences of the present agreement. Of course we had questions which were quickly addressed and final documents were soon ready for signing. The fee charged was less than quoted and the overall experience was better than imagined. The most impressive part of our relationship was Lauren's knowledge of business and how it works beyond the legal issues involved. I have had good and bad interactions with legal professionals before this time and thus had mixed feelings about the legal profession in general. Working with Lauren, however, has raised my perception of the value and importance of legal assistance. I am sure I will request her help in future transactions associated with our business.

Lauren had my business license and contract done in a very short time. She was up to date on what I needed to do and was a pleasure to work with.

I engaged Lauren to represent me in a dispute with a former employer who was violating the terms of my employment contract. Lauren always responded quickly to calls and emails, and provided me with sound, no-nonsense legal advice. Her calm and business-like approach helped cool off what could have been an emotionally explosive situation, had I tried to handle it alone. Best of all, due largely to Lauren's guidance, the issue was settled for the full amount that had been due on the contract.

Atty. Burgon has proven time and again to be invaluable in steering her clients towards the most cost effective and viable legal options. Her attention to detail and complicated contract wording makes paying for the services she provides a very wise investment.

During the purchase of my business I have been fortunate to have Lauren Burgon represent me as the legal counsel on my acquisition team. Lauren’s firm was recommended to me by an advisor who had recommended her firm to many other business owners.
During the process of acquiring the business I found Lauren to be extremely knowledgeable and patient and always making sure that I understood all of the legal details that a new business owner needed to be aware of. I have been impressed with her high degree of integrity and positive attitude. I always felt confident that she was protecting both the opportunities and interests of me while making sure that I was aware of any risks that may exist and whether it should or could be addressed.
At the completion of the transaction there was not any surprise in the fees and I found their costs to be very reasonable. I still use Lauren as legal counsel for my business and will continue to do so. Lauren gave me the confidence that my legal documents would always benefit my business. I highly recommend Lauren and Equinox Law to anyone that has the need for a quality business law group that will protect their interests at all times.
