I am so impressed with the family law services this law firm has provided so far, that I want to write a raving review with the confidence of total satisfaction before this dissolution is final.
Lara Kuyumjian was first approached by me with many barriers in our case. She was not presented with an ordinary California dissolution case. Lara knew when she accepted the case that she would be dealing with elder abuse claims, a client requiring ADA accommodations, Power of Attorney, jurisdictional issues, a narcissist on the opposing side with a penchant for making false allegations, as well as voluminous files from the works of two prior substandard family law lawyers. Even after agreeing to take on all of those added challenges, she has been amazing.
I have witnessed her sort through a very complex situation with layered elements of dated events, financial documents, emails, letters and prior case/court information to comprehend and bring herself up to date with this divorce’s current state of affairs. Lara has actually become so knowledgeable on past and present issues, she has been able to “I-spyishly” uncover some information that we were not yet aware of.
Under the guidance of Tom Simpson (a family law guru), Lara has made a lot happen in the amount of time that she has been on this case. Her writing style has its own ability to make the conversation jump off of the paper and grab the attention of the reader (opposing counsel) in a non-threatening/polite yet threatening way that gets the message across. When the opposing side decided to side track the progress of the case and delay by making false allegations, Lara wasted no time. She tipped her family law hat briefly and slid on her defense lawyer hat. Lara became a legal warrior, getting the job done. Her strategy was flawless.
I realize a lawyer can’t hold your hand in these highly emotional times , but Lara’s compassion and constant communication is very comforting and has allowed me to always know that she is on the case and that me and my divorce case is being well taken care of.
There are no winners or losers in a California divorce, the most you can hope for is your 50% and your freedom. It is a bonus and a blessing when you find family law lawyers like Tom and Lara. Lara is a lawyer you can trust, someone who knows the law, listens to you and has your back at all times. We appreciate all of the hard work and dedication she has put moving in the direction toward finalizing this divorce. Thank you Lara and thank you Tom.
