Real Client Testimonials

“She is not afraid to go toe to toe in the court room against opposing counsel and she made my ex and her counsel look vastly unprepared and downright foolish at times. Lauren paid attention to every detail and worked hard to keep costs down in what I would consider a high conflict divorce. Lauren is extremely trustworthy, so much I trusted her to represent me in court even while I was deployed overseas, which speaks volumes about her character.”
