So choosing a lawyer can be very stressful given any circumstances especially when the FBI comes knocking. And after talking with other lawyers and then talking with Lorraine it was not a question I was gonna go with her and her team at LGR law. She made me feel comfortable and in good hands the whole time and not pushy. Extremely fair priced and not price just after my money. I feel like she actually took to heart my interests and doing what was best for me. Again can’t say better things about them at LGR law I highly recommend them. August 8, 2022
LGR Law went above and beyond all of the qualities one would look for while being represented I can’t begin to express how grateful my family and I were to have Loraine and her staff in our desperate time of need.
It’s difficult for me to put into words what an amazing attorney and person Lorraine is. Unlike most lawyers, Lorraine honestly cared and made time for me even though she had a lot of other cases. She was always positive, very attentive, and answering my phone calls. Lorraine and I not only communicated over the phone, but she also visited me several times. Her care and concern for me were so immense that I see her as family now. Lorraine is honestly one of the best attorneys a person can have.

My Name is Vladimir S., and I want everyone to know that Ms. Gauli-Rufo is an excellent attorney. I had a serious federal felony that I ended up pleading guilty to. The government wanted me to serve jail time, but through Ms. Gauli-Rufo’s hard work and commitment, I was able to stay out of jail and be put on probation. In the beginning of my case, she said she was going to work hard for me and fight for me, and she came through for me each time. I cannot say enough about her. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t know where I would be today. Thank you, Ms. Gauli-Rufo, for everything you have done for me.
I can’t say enough about, Ms. Lorraine Gauli-Rufo. Before I spoke to her about my case, I was very uneasy about my situation. I immediately felt comfortable after my very first meeting and was treated with respect and kindness. This made a stressful period in my life bearable. Along with her years of experience and expertise, I would strongly recommend her.
Lorraine worked very hard and achieved a decision I could not have even dared hoped for….She truly cares about her clients and their families. She is a good person to have on your side.
