Experience, Knowledge and Conscientious Lawyering Are Hallmarks of Laurel’s Practice

Laurel uses her knowledge and experience to provide personal, professional service.  Her ethics and responsiveness have earned her clients’ trust.

Diligent Review Eliminates Surprise

Whether buying or selling real estate, you need a lawyer who will thoroughly and diligently read every line of a contract, especially if it is “boilerplate”.  It is not enough to skim the contract to confirm price, closing date, and other business points. You need a lawyer who is familiar with all provisions that not carefully reviewed and discussed could have a negative impact in the end. You need a lawyer who reads the title report, the survey and the Certificate of Occupancy; one who can determine the status of any liens against the property.  You need a lawyer who aims to resolve issues pre-closing to insure there are no surprises at closing.

I have known Laurel for over 20 years and as a mortgage banker have worked with her on many matters. My clients are always well represented by Laurel – she is professional, meticulous and an attorney with heart. An absolute pleasure to deal with in all situations and I wholeheartedly recommend her

“What a magnificent effort Laurel displayed on our behalf with respect to the sale of our house. We cannot thank her enough for all that she did to make the process as painless as possible. Working with Laurel on this adventure was actually (more often than not) fun!!”

Mary and Bruce

My husband and I recently purchased a new home and Laurel represented us with the purchase. I have known Laurel for years and she was definitely our go-to woman!  Laurel was very thorough and explained the process and the steps.  We knew what to expect when speaking to her.  When Laurel takes you on as client she is as serious as you are about the major changes in your life and being as prepared as possible. You feel the compassion as well as the professionalism that Laurel provides throughout your process.  I continue to recommend Laurel above anyone else.
