WHAT our CLIENTS SAY

We are grateful for all she did!

We had the good fortune to have been referred to Laurie Jubelirer after our 22 year old daughter had been given a DUI. We hired Laurie as our daughter’s attorney and she immediately got to work on our daughter’s case. Laurie explained everything to our daughter Jane in such a way that Jane felt comfortable and confident, and we knew that Jane was in extremely capable hands. Laurie was organized, prompt, communicative, available, and prepared. She exudes a warmth that makes one feel less nervous. Our daughter knew exactly what she had to do before her hearing, and Laurie offered her support both professionally and personally along the way. The day of the hearing Laurie never left Jane’s side. It went exactly as she told our daughter it would, and with the best possible outcome. We would highly recommend Laurie and would happily hire her again should we ever need an attorney. We are grateful for all she did for Jane and for us!
