Lopez & Wilmert son los mejores abogados. Me ayudaron con varios problemas legales. Roxanne nos ayudo a mi novio y a mi con dos casos de divorcio. Roxanne tambien resolvio mi caso de daño corporal y me consiguio mas dinero de lo que el seguro me estaba ofreciendo. Los abogados de Lopez y Wilmert tienen mucha experiencia y yo se los recomendaria a cualquier persona.

My Lawyer Roxanne Lopez was amazing. I was referred to her from a friend and the day I met her she was up front with me. She prepared me for everything, from getting all documents in place, to prepping me for mediation and our court hearings. I am extremely and forever thankful for all she has done for me during this process and at the end of it all things were for the best and I have Roxanne to thank for it.

Although my case was very difficult, Larisa took it with no hesitation. She supported me and kept me informed and went above and beyond for the nine months that I was deployed. Amazing lawyer who actually cares about her clients.

Lopez & Wilmert were successful in allowing me to get a necessary court order for me to move to Hawaii with my son. With Roxanne’s knowledge, experience, and compassion it made a difficult and stressful process manageable.
