" There is not a better family law attorney around. Lauren has been my attorney of record for the last 7 years and I would not trust another law firm in town with my case. I went thru a few attorneys before I found Lauren and am happy I found her. I have referred numerous friends and clients to Lauren and they have all said thank you for referring them to her. She will fight extremely hard for you and will walk you thru the process. She is very down to earth and easy to talk to. I would strongly recommend Lauren for all your family law needs."
" I had to deal with a high-conflict divorce. Ms. Patterson was organized, professional, and responsive. She sanity checked everything the ex demanded, made sure I knew what alternatives were, and helped me deal with a sometimes combative lawyer on the other side. I have recommended this firm to several people and will continue to do so. I appreciate them enough that I'm keeping them on retainer until my child graduates from high school - that way I know I'll have help if I need it!"
" After fighting years of ugly custody battles alone, I decided to get representation. Lauren came on board with us right before our court date and she jumped in hot and ready to assist us. Her assistant Ericka was very patient with us as well. All our paperwork and responses were prepared and filed almost immediately to avoid any continuances. Unlike most law firms, Ericka answered the phones regularly even if it was just to give me a status update. If requested, we were always able to speak with Lauren as well. Lauren's office worked efficiently in the office and the courtroom. As a father trying to co-parent with an uncooperative co-parent, you feel hopeless. Lauren changed that for me, she fought for my custody and valuable time with my kids. Lauren's office helped me during one of the most difficult times in my co-parenting life. I will forever be grateful for the law firm and would absolutely recommend their services to anyone in need. "
" I, as Petitioner, engaged Ms. Patterson's legal counsel over the course of two years of lengthy, intense and often contentious court battles with a non-cooperative, meddling, trouble-making co-parent, the Respondent, on matters of custody, co-parenting, healthcare decisions, expense-sharing, alienation, unilateralism and lack of transparency regarding child-rearing. I've always felt that being the father in these matters puts one at a disadvantage because there actually is a natural bias in favor of the mom on the part of the courts, and the burden of proof (and perception) rests more heavily with the dad. But with Lauren in my corner, I always felt like she flipped those perceptions in the eyes of the court due to her strategic skill, preparedness and convincing, facts-based arguments. She was proactively thinking about things like she knew the judge would think about them. Very smart! She's reasoned and thoughtful, but able to play hardball if needed. Lauren is a pro's pro and she makes her client (this one) feel like she's not just in control of the details, but always focused on the big picture and ultimately, what's best for her client - not to mention that she is driven to win. She's strongly motivated by an ethical value of fighting for what's right and calling out what's wrong. She inspires confidence and it's clear that she is respected by the court and by opposing counsel as well. If she's on your team you are left feeling that your future, especially on matters so important as the welfare of your children, is in very capable hands and that your odds of achieving the outcome you seek are greatly improved. She delivers results! What more could you ask for or hope for in an attorney?!? I strongly recommend Lauren! Partly because of her successful involvement in my situation, I doubt I'll ever again need the help of a Family Court lawyer - the court sided with us in every decision! But if I do, she's the first one I'll call. Thank you, Lauren. You really helped, a lot."
" I have had exceptional representation by both Mr. Cohen and Ms. Patterson over the last 7 years. Although my divorce was finalized over 5 years ago, I have had to retain their services for ongoing issues with my ex-husband. They exude professionalism and are quick to respond to questions and concerns. I have been thoroughly impressed with my counsel. ...Mr. Cohen and Ms. Patterson are excellent attorneys who work diligently to represent their clients. I have referred numerous people to them and will continue to do so, as they are, in my opinion, the best in the IE."
