I highly recommend Lori and her office, impeccable job, honest, she is very human , who listen and understands.I appreciate the very detailed invoice she gave to me where every dollar spent was explained transparent transaction

J. P.

I initially approached Lori Somekh based upon the fact that she was a fellow alumni from St. John's University. Knowing that the school has many excellent practicing attorneys was important for me, but one that specialized in elder care even more so. I wanted someone with the experience and expertise that could assist me in setting up Power of Attorney for my Grandparents. Lori did a great job. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and plan to use her services again.
