Attorney Barraco and Attorney Callahan are fantastic. They have helped me get through the most difficult period of my life. My divorce took almost two years, and when a final agreement was eventually reached, it was primarily thanks to the hard work and determination of Attorney Barraco, who has worked diligently to make sure all concerns got addressed during the proceedings, while also allowing me to remain fully involved and (with her skillful guidance) to make the decisions on what I wanted out of my settlement, and what would work best for me and my children.
Laurel has spent many, many hours helping me understand the intricacies of the process, and answering my countless questions. We had frequent contact in person, via phone, email and text messaging. Laurel was always meticulous with her review of any documents, and timely with her responses. I never felt I had to wait an unreasonable amount of time for her to get back to me, which hugely eased the anxiety I was feeling about my highly contested custody case. Even at the time when things were prolonged and confusing, when I had questions outside of typical business hours, or if any sudden developments occurred, Laurel was easily reachable and would get back to me quickly and help me navigate the unexpected in a calm, rational manner. Words cannot express how supported I felt, especially having previously worked with an attorney who was very unresponsive and, at times, condescending.
Throughout the course of the divorce Laurel and her amazing paralegal Megan, stayed on top of each individual concern (and there were many) and made sure everything was always followed up on and resolved. Laurel has done a fantastic job organizing my notes into coherent documents, helping me understand how the process worked, and explaining the outcomes I could likely expect. Her advice was always spot on, even when she had to gently guide me to adjust my approach or expectations.
Attorney Dave Callahan, who represented me alongside Attorney Barraco, has also helped me tremendously. He, like Laurel, took a lot of time to answer entire lists of questions I would bring with me to appointments. He participated in strategy meetings and frequently collaborated with Attorney Barraco to combine their expertise for most beneficial results. Laurel and Dave are a strong, experienced team; while working with them I knew I was in good hands, and felt confident that they would successfully guide me over to the other side, which (of course) they did. I would recommend both Attorney Barraco and Attorney Callahan to anyone, they are not just excellent lawyers, but most importantly great people who truly care about the wellbeing of their clients.
