Former Client Reviews

I spoke with several attorneys about getting custody of my (step) son. Most hesitated, and few took the time to listen to our complete story. Laurinda didn't just listen, but she cared, and jumped in to action. She expertly maneuvered and led us through the legal process, never hesitating or settling because she clearly understood what our objectives were. Her knowledge of the law, and ability to think outside the box made all the difference for us. She delivered the perfect resolution to a situation other attorneys told me was insurmountable. Thanks to Laurinda, my son and I have a new start, and he has the security and stability he has been longing for. We are thankful!

I thought my ex-wife and I could go the “do it yourself” divorce way and save some money. What a mistake! Not only was I totally lost with the court forms, status meetings, evaluators, and the other things we had to go through, everything I suggested to the ex-wife was not good enough for her. Laurinda was referred to me by a friend at work who she helped with his divorce. When I met her she explained that she would try and find a common ground for my ex and me to agree on as far as parenting time, assets and child support. If that failed, the gloves would come off and we would go to court. Never had to fight it out with the ex. Laurinda brokered a fair deal for both of us. Her fees were reasonable and she saved me thousands of dollars over what the ex-wife wanted. Would recommend her highly.
