“I’m sure there are no two cases that are alike, but I feel that the struggles coming from the mother of my kids have been more than usual. Laura has been supportive and very informative along this journey, and I truly feel that if not for her my children would not have a chance at a healthy upbringing. I’m very happy with her professionalism in dealing with other parties and her patience in explaining everything to me. …”
