I hired Ms. Lasley to help me with my divorce after my husband and I could no longer communicate. Ms. Lasley went into immediately went into action. She sped up the usually drawn out process of divorce. Even with all the issues with our house and the time share of my kids, she was able to win my time with my kids and I am so grateful. She was always available when I needed to talk and really took the time to help me through the worst event in my life. I felt so loss without my kids and without Ms. Lasley's diligent work I don't think I would been able to get such a great result. She is the best!
Excellent care with consistent consideration of my case throughout the process from intake interview to final hearing. This is the legal team you are seeking to look out for your current and future financial well being and mental health. Thank you Mindi, Yanna, and Gloria.
mindi and yanna both are excellent, mindi handle my divorce 7 yr ago. and i try to use my attorney service i have through were i work to handle this case. not good,,,, mindi knew the case from the divorce, and hit the ground flying. thank you mindi and yanna
Was very happy with Mindi and her team. Was easy to talk to when explaining my situation and she was very confident on what the outcome would be and she was correct. Would recomend Mindi Lasley and her team to anyone who would need a lawyer,very pleased with how everything turned out.
hired mindi Lasley for my child custody battle back in 2008 and I won my case!!! She is the best lawyer!! I couldn't ask for a better lawyer and staff!!!
I HIGHLY Recommend her !!! She is the best and has a great staff!!!
My divorce was very complicated. We had a custody battle, domestic violence, and my ex-husband is bipolar with psychotic features. She pinpointed almost everything that was going to happen in court. She never is bothered by questions, and believe me I asked a lot of them, and she is not afraid to stand her ground. That is where the small but mighty comes in. She is very soft spoken, but push her too far, and believe me she can be heard 3 counties away. And she will be heard.
I hired Ms. Lasley to represent me in my very hostile divorce. My husband's attorney was extremely aggressive, my husband lied about everything and took all the money in our joint accounts, ran up our credit cards, tried to get out of paying me any child support yet faught me for custody of my kids. My case went to trial and Ms. Lasley was extremely aggressive, got me child support, custody of my kids, more assets than he got to make up for the money he spent and even alimony. I tried to do the case without an attorney but wasn't getting anywhere and Ms. Lasley got me in front of a judge much quicker than what I was able to do. Fortunately I'm at a better place now where I can support my children and finally move on from an abusive marriage and I have Ms. Lasley to thank for that. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for an aggressive and compassioonate attorney at a reasonable price (and she even got my husband to reimburse me for part of my attorney's fees)!
I’ve been divorced before and I had a bad experience during my first divorce by going with a lawyer that didn’t focus in family law so I did a lot of research and made very certain that I hired the right lawyer this time. Ms. Lasley and her staff were always very professional, easy to get in touch with and answered my questions, always kept me informed of what was going on and Ms. Lasley was extremely easy to talk to. I always felt like I was in good hands throughout the whole process. My case was quite contentious and I was extremely satisfied with my outcome. Ms. Lasley can be extremely reasonable and went above and beyond to save me costs and frustration during the process, but when it was obvious this approach wasn’t going to settle my case, she wasted no time in became extremely aggressive with my husband and his lawyer which did the trick. She was amazing in court. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer.
Mindi Lasley and her staff assisted my husband and I in the re-adoption of our Chinese-born daughter. Mindi and her staff were extremely professional and helpful throughout this process. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. All details were handled to our complete satisfaction. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a competent and compassionate attorney.
Mindi Lasley is able to provide an unusual combination of professionalism and compassion in difficult situations. She is astute and perceptive in trying to glean information needed from a client in despair. Mindi embraced the input of my supporting friends and responded to their questions when I was too shaken to know what to ask. Mindi was recommended to me as an attorney who could be a "dainty blonde pit bull" and, indeed, she is not timid about taking charge of a situation in the way that the client needs. I was kept abreast of changes and my questions were always answered in a timely fashion from either Mindi or Yanna, Mindi's gracious legal assistant. Yanna is very capable and they make a great team. I would especially encourage any woman going through a divorce to consider retaining the services of the office of attorney Mindi Lasley.
Mindi Lasley has gone beyond the call of duty for our organization. She is not only serious about doing the best job, she has alot of compassion as well. When other attorneys would of most likely turned our case away, Mindi took it on with open arms ready to go full force. Thank you Mindi, you're the best!!!!
Made the divorce so much less stressful. She made everything easy to understand and was extremely responsive to all my needs. Thank you!
Mindi is an outstanding attorney! She was thorough, courteous and conscientious. She maintained constant and regular contact with me including numerous notes, phone calls and emails throughout the entire process. In fact, I was often surprised to see her working at all times of day and night to ensure my issues were addressed. I routinely received answers to my inquiries in a timely manner. I would give my strongest recommendation to her and feel confident she would handle your case in an exceptionally competent and professional manner.
always informative and very helpful during a very difficult time. I had worked with other attorneys but by far she was the most prepared, and her staff was always very quick to respond when I needed them.
Mindi did not listen to my requests or act on what I had asked her to accomplish in my case. When I asked her for a status (I had to call numerous times, she was unresponsive) she threatened me with "not doing anything else on the case until I replenished my retainer". No progress was made on the case in almost 4 months, yet she managed to exhaust my retainer on "replying to emails".
I highly recommend Counselor Lasley to resolve one’s legal domestic issues she is trustworthy, ethical, and kept me informed. Mindi is dedicated to hers clients and always works with them by means of various communication instruments. Her strive for perfection, emphatic counseling and expertise of family law supersedes all expectations or advertisements. Her staff is always professional, courteous, and respectful while dealing with distress or disconcerts clients. Mindi Lasley aided me in one of the most detrimental portions of my life, solving all my legal domestic issues, allowing me to have a second chance to fore fill a prosperous future for myself and children. Mindi is a star that will only burn out when two plus two equals three, and she will utilizes all her gifts to represent her client in the manner they rightly deserve. Thank you, Jerome Howard Jr.
Not only was Ms. Lasley informative and straight forward, she made me feel extremely comfortable each step of a difficult process. She executed the necessary steps in a timely manner yet took enough time for me to understand all documents and implications of each document thoroughly. I will recommend her to anyone who needs divorce representation.
Mindi, Yanna and Gloria were the answer to my prayers. Divorce is already a frustrating and painful process, and having to deal with lawyers who don’t return calls or emails or just don’t care, can make it worse. My divorce lasted 2.5 years and Mindi was the 3rd lawyer on my case. When I wasn’t getting anywhere with my first two lawyers and they kept billing me, I wished that I had a lawyer in my family or a close friend who could represent me sincerely and wholeheartedly. When Mindi,Yanna and Gloria took on my case , it felt just like that. They are able to understand a clients pain involved and work above and beyond to make sure their client gets justice. Mindi and team were able to get me child support from my ex-husband before even going to trial, which I wasn’t able to do with my previous two lawyers.
My case went to trial and focused mainly on my sons (3.5yr) out of country travel to a non Hague convention country, and timesharing. Mindi was extremely prepared for trial and got me well prepared as to what to expect also. She researched several case laws of children who were taken to that specific country and not returned, and the negative impacts it had on the children. Both the judge and even opposing council commented on the amount of time and effort she must have put in to research the case laws. Also, because of her keen attention to detail, she was able to catch my ex-husband in a lie he said during depositions that took place 3 months before trial. My husband was asked to read from his deposition transcript, his own lie aloud in court, which even embarrassed me. During depositions, if she had overlooked, ignored, or failed to research those few sentences that my ex-husband uttered about his immigration, I would have had to let my son go to Hague convention countries at the very least, and fear him not returning bc my ex is not a US Citizen. Because of Mindi’s ability to pinpoint this and all her case law research and her absolutely amazing closing argument in trial, the judge ruled for my son to not even leave the country!! She also got me the timesharing that I desired. There were a few times during the process leading up to trial where opposing council tried to threaten and manipulate her from proceeding to trial altogether, but she was not intimidated at all. She stayed cool and composed and maintained her professionalism while responding back.
Some other points about Mindi, Yanna and Gloria: they are organized, they always keep you updated on whats going on in the case, they send you copies of everything, they will return calls and emails within 24 hours, they always give their honest input but ultimately lets the client decide, always listens to everything you have to say, never interrupts or cuts you off when speaking, makes you feel that you’re their only client, makes time for you, prepares you for the worst, sincerely cares and is very reasonably priced.
Lastly, I walked away from this experience not only as a satisfied client, but also a better person by just dealing with them. I see how their hard work positively impacted my life by saving me from a potentially disastrous future for me and my family. I work harder in my own line of work hoping that I can be a blessing in someone else’s life just like Mindi and team have been in mine.
Thank you Mindi, Yanna and Gloria!!!
I hired my first attorney and fired him due to his lack of progress on the case. I found Mindi and she immediately fixed all his mistakes. She listened and actually cared about my family and the case. It's very hard to find a lawyer that cares about the client and not the money.
Great lawyer, great staff
In July 2015, I was served a supplemental petition to modify final judgement by my ex-wife. This marked the third time she had served me since 2010. As one would expect, I have become pretty familiar with the family court system, so I had a good idea of the type of lawyer I wanted to retain. After my consultation with Mindi, I was confident her goal was to serve my best interest. Mindi immediately started gathering facts and information and used this data to turn the tables with a counter petition of Affirmative Defense: Unclean Hands. This really stirred up my ex and her attorney. They began dragging their feet and sent a ridiculous number of emails to Mindi containing no real substance. Mindi did a fantastic job at handling these emails and calls without burning through my retainer. Additionally, one emailed response from Mindi to opposing counsel sealed the deal. Her response to accusations made against me were so cleverly crafted and precise that my ex-wife literally begged me to drop the case. That’s right, my ex-wife tried to modify the final judgement and then begged me to not “take the children away” from her. After some discussion with Mindi and my ex, we decided to settle out of court. Mindi and I were both confident we would win the case, but she was empathetic to my thoughts and I didn’t feel any pressure from her to continue the case. It’s also worth noting Mindi’s paralegal, Yanna, was fantastic as well. I had many conversations with Yanna and always felt that she was looking out for my best interest. If I ever need a family lawyer again I would hire Mindi without a second thought, however, I don’t think I will because my ex-wife knows this as well.
Mindi recently negotiated and finalized a prenuptial agreement for me, and we just had the wedding as planned without a moment of doubt or misconception. It was a huge help to me to have her represent my interests and provide guidance with such integral decisions as I begin this new chapter of my life. She really stuck to our demands to insure this was not some one-sided winner take all sort of deal. We obtained a fair agreement due to her ability to be reasonable and poised when proposing our counter-offers. It eases the mind to know that you are protected no matter what the future may hold, and I’m certain I obtained only the best due to her services.
It’s easy for anyone to find a lawyer these days with so many on the internet, but if you want a serious and qualified attorney look no further than Mindi Lasley. Beginning with the initial consultation and hiring process she was honest and upfront about all possibilities and prospects, and her and her staff, Yanna and Gloria, continued to deliver the same attention and professionalism to the very end. I was provided with copies of all documents as they came in, clear instructions on the proceedings, and prepared for all court dates. She runs an intelligent practice and does not hold back when it comes time to be aggressive. These are the qualities you want in the law firm that handles your custody case. Thanks again for all of your help and hard work ladies.
I recently finalized my divorce case and could not be more pleased with the work and effort made by Mindi and her staff. Of course this process was not easy for me and I am thankful to have had this team representing me and by my side every step of the way. It was clear throughout the entire process that they run an esteemed, organized, and professional law practice and I would highly recommend them to anyone going through these same hard circumstances.
Mindi is truly among the best lawyers in Tampa/St. Petersburg area. Her rates are reasonable and is she is willing to work with you for the payment. Her staff sends an electronic copy of the bill so that you can see exactly where you money goes. She returns all phone calls as soon as she possibly can and is honest about everything. Mindi’s staff is extremely professional and can usually answer questions without having to contact Mindi. They are very experienced which is very good for the consumer. If there is any question as to why call Mindi and ask. My case started in 2009 as a child relocation case and had evolved into multiple other cases concerning my child due to situations between my child’s mother and me. Our final case was setteled in Feb 2015. From approximately Aug 2010 to Feb 2015 I have not had a decision that did not go my way. My son’s mother has had approximately five lawyers in five years. The most recent lawyer was considered to be one of the best appeals lawyers in the area.
Mindi is remarkable in the courtroom and has a very commanding presence when making her arguments. I have seen her literally leave the opposing council speechless or on a spiraling mumble to nowhere. Mindi is very well prepared and shows an extreme amount of attention to detail, which on one occasion lead to a decision in my favor. Over a period of five years I have never had a mistake on any document that Mindi has prepared and there has never been a mistake on any that was presented to the judge. I could tell that she is very well respected in the lawyering community by the professional courtesies and respect that she was given by her peers and also the respect she garnered from the courtroom staff.
Mindi really cares about her clients and gives you all the tools you need to succeed. If you are honest with her and more importantly with yourself about your expected outcome there really is nothing to worry about.
