Testimonials & Representative Clients


"Lauren is one of the brightest and most pragmatic attorneys I know.  We gladly refer clients to her and look to her wisdom for our own legal needs as well."

-Richard Archer, Archer Investment Management

“Lauren and Eleanor have been extremely helpful for both our residential and commercial legal needs.  They have guided us successfully through a couple of difficult situations and advocated for us consistently and effectively.  They also revamped our standard residential contract to give us the protection we actually need.  We have used this contract with virtually every residential client moving forward.  We happily recommend them.”

The team was helpful in reviewing our existing contracts and enhancing them to minimize liability and aligning them to better fit the needs of our business and our customers."
