Family law case - Unethical and Malpracticed Me
1 Star is way too much! My experience with attorney Lauser was horrific! She is an outright liar and is not familiar with family law! She advised that after almost 22 years of marriage that I was not entitled to spousal support because I made more money than my ex-husband. She never advised that I was entitled to his retirement, pension, 401(k), monies received in an early retirement buyout, did no discovery, had the opposing counsel preparing FOAH without explaining them to me, advised that I did not have to appear in court. I filed bankruptcy while going through my divorce and she failed to provide the superior court with notice of my bankruptcy and the automatic stay. She simply proceeded to move the court. She advised me to sign an order stating I would pay the mortgage payments until the house was sold, that I would try to refinance the house in 45 days if not I would move out and that my ex husband did not need my signature on important docs that the court clerk had authority to sign my name. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU HIRE THIS ATTORNEY UNLESS YOU WANT HER TO RUIN YOUR LIFE. After

She is amazing
I had a complex case, Ms Lauser always made herself available and was great to work with. If you can give up control and trust the attorney you hired to do their job, you are in great hands. She has never disappointed after half a dozen court cases. I would refer my best friend to her.

Should actually have a 0 rating. The most unethical attorney ever witnessed first hand. Lies in court, even though those lies are documented to the court, nothing is done to admonish her unethical behavior. She is in the process of being reported to the California State BAR along with any and all government and other regulatory agencies with proof of her lying in court. Probably the media to get some real results. Please note the office address of 828 Main, Martinez is not hers. I was in the Martinez Law Library with a librarian helping me and she said the address did not look right. The first time I went there it was an Oriental massage place, later it was for lease. Check with the City of Martinez for that address. She actually works out of her home in Antioch. I am pretty sure she will have some ethics questions to answer in time from some agencies. There are actually court documents that exist showing a form she filled out indicating her as the other party’s attorney, and the other party in the case as her client’s attorney. This is fact and can be proven. If she cannot even identify who she represents on a filed court document is she professional? That is not to mention her lies in court, that would not have been indicated, if not true.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS ATTORNEY!!
STAY AWAY FROM THIS ATTORNEY! This woman represented my wife in her move away case. She stated that she felt bad for my wife considering at the time she was 7 months pregnant, and knew she would need legal representation for such a complex case. My wife being desperate for help paid her a discounted retainer fee of $1650 ...not the full amount of $2000 due to a payment plan that both parties agreed on. For 2 months my wife continuously reaches out to Mrs. Lauser pertaining the case, each time her emails weren't returned for 2-3 days. When the emails were returned Mrs. Lauser would always reply, "let's just wait and see how it goes". The original pleading for my wife's case was filed by my wife even though at that point she was represented by Mrs. Lauser. Mrs. Lauser had my pregnant wife drive to the court house and get the original orders as well as file the new pleading. The entire time of representation, Mrs. Lauser never once tried to reach out to my wife's ex husband to try and settle the case outside of court. She never once reached out for anything. My wife's ex husband was hospitalized on 2 separate occasions, and never once did Mrs. Lauser file any paperwork with the court prior to the court date to inform the judge of the new circumstances. When my wife finally went to court Mrs. Lauser informed my wife that she hadn't read the mediation report, she asked my wife if she had a copy of the mediation report, and my wife said no. She than says she's going to go get a copy from the court. This entire time Mrs. Lauser was gone, there was no preparation for the hearing, there was no strategy, there was nothing. When Mrs. Lauser finally showed up for the actual hearing, she went on to lie to the judge about myself, and my wife's ex husband. She seemed confused, and all over the place. It was a complete and utter joke and in the end the judge sided with the mediator. The mediation report was in favor of my wife's ex husband. Mrs. Lauser is a devil. She proclaims to be a Christian but in actuality she is a snake praying on vounersble families in desperate need of help with the family law system. Please stay away from this Attorney. You would have better luck going in alone. She's a horrible lady and we have reported her to the State Bar Association. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!
