At Lawrence Law, we know that family issues affect all aspects of your life. This is a difficult time in your life and you need a lawyer that is compassionate and has your best interests at heart. That’s why we treat your cases with the sensitivity and the expediency that you need.
Our extensive initial consultation helps us get on track with your file immediately. An extensive consultation ensures you get legal advice quickly, allowing you enough time to decide on how you want to proceed.

Although we specialize in dispute resolution, but we always prepare our clients for litigation in the event that a reasonable resolution cannot be made.
