A Winning Strategy for Any Family Conflict
Many law firms assign more than one attorney to a case which can be impersonal and ineffective. Tampa Family & Divorce Lawyer Mindi Lasley guarantees that Ms. Lasley will personally handle your case and work directly with you from the date that we are retained, throughout strategizing, negotiations and trial until the case is completed and all issues have been resolved.
Ms. Lasley understands that no two cases are alike, that’s why she will take the time to methodically review the specific details of your case in order to develop a customized strategy that fits your needs. She will carefully listen to your thoughts and concerns and will provide straightforward, precise and honest legal advice.
Ms. Lasley is capable of tackling any case, from the most civil to the most contentious. To date, she has 100 trial cases under her belt. She is a savvy negotiator and mediator who can reach settlements quickly and efficiently but is not afraid to go on the attack in litigation if necessary.
