TESTIMONIALS

  • “Lauren is smart, professional in word and manner, and quite intuitive in analyzing situations. She thinks through and researches issues before proposing solutions. One of her best qualities is that of keeping her client(s) focused on the defined goals for settling the problems at hand using her cheerful personality.  It is indeed a pleasure working with Lauren."

    -Claire Johnson

  • “He has an in-depth understanding of creditors’ rights law and bankruptcy law. He is extremely responsive and is capable of seeing the business side of workouts, not just the legal side. He helps come up with a solution that is often times mutually acceptable to both sides and is tremendously successful in all the work he’d done. By far my favorite bankruptcy lawyer in Florida.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “She is efficient, practical, no-nonsense and smart."

    -Chambers 2013

  • "He's a very good attorney: diligent, thorough and always on top of things. A real trial lawyer."

    -Chambers 2013

  • "Heather is a great lawyer; however, one of her best attributes is that she also thinks like a business person. She understands our needs and gives us practical, real-world advice -- not something you get from many lawyers."
