I consulted with 2 other lawyers prior to meeting with Lara on the phone. I was ever so glad to have done that. Lara was so so helpful with all my questions, whether they made sense or not. She assured me that all of them were important as I was clueless on how to proceed. Lara was friendly yet professional. She absolutely came through for me during my case. The entire process seemed effortlessly and painless and I was ever so grateful. I highly recommend Lara to anyone.

I appreciated that Ms. Gardner was always available for questions and direction. She is a good listener and she is very good at explaining the options available. I was extremely comfortable working with her, and grateful for her kindness.

Wow. If you are looking for a truly honest lawyer that cares more about getting the commerce bullies off your back than making a fortune, then you need to retain Lara Gardner. I had actually been advised that I needed to file a Chapter 13 by the first lawyer I consulted. I left his office terrified of the unknown. Thank god I looked for a second opinion and that is when I found Lara. From the moment we spoke I knew I was dealing with a lawyer that knew the law and from the moment I retained her I knew it was going to be okay. Like I said at the beginning of this review, if you have the need for a lawyer that knows the laws and will go to bat for you, look no further Lara is the right lawyer for you..
