Contact Lauro Law, PLLC by calling 501-613-6529 or email at to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss your situation.

We provide each prospective client a Free 15-Minute Initial Phone Consultation.  During this phone consultation, we listen and ask questions in order to identify your legal issues and evaluate whether we may be of service to you.  Because 15 minutes is not enough time to review your case thoroughly, you can maximize the value of the consultation by being prepared.  Such preparation includes describing the issue(s) you are having, what kind of outcome will meet your expectation and satisfaction, and what kind of costs you are willing to incur for my services.

In addition to a Free 15-Minute Initial Phone Consultation, you may take advantage of an Initial Office Visit where we can meet face to face and discuss your legal issues in greater detail.  This will allow us to review more information so that we may better evaluate your legal issues and provide options that directly address those issues.  The first 30 minutes of the Initial Office Visit is set a reduced rate Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm and an increased rate Monday through Friday, 5pm to 7:30pm, and Saturday and Sunday 10:30am to 3:30pm.

Our hourly rates are reasonable and competitive. See Fees for more information.

Please give us a call if you need assistance.  We’re here to serve you!
