Lorna M. Truett, Esq. Reviews
The smartest lawyer I know
I would like to start off by saying I went to a lot of consultations with several other attorneys who barely even looked at my paperwork. They were only concerned with how many motions they could file in my case, and how much they could charge me for each frivolous motion. When I met with Lorna she actually sat down with me, looked through the paperwork with great detail, and gave me a list of options. None of which involved a bunch of motions that wasted my money, or time for that matter. From start to finish Lorna handled my case in my best interest, always advising me of my options, and letting me know which option was best for me and my situation as my case was very complex. She was really good about staying in touch with me and keeping me in the loop whether by email or phone calls. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case. Thanks to Lorna I got everything I wanted and things worked out in my favor. I highly recommend Lorna if you want an attorney that takes the time to understand your specific needs and makes sure she works towards fulfilling those needs!

Firm, friendly, frank and confident
Lorna Truett was hired at the recommendation of her former colleague at The Orlando Family Law Firm, my former attorney, Eric DuBois, who was recently elected Orange County Judge. Lorna helped me secure an extension for a mortgage refi as part of a marriage settlement agreement. The extension was challenged by my ex-wife, and Lorna provided excellent advice and rapid response to deflect contempt of court motions filed against me as I sought to complete the refinancing efficiently within a short time frame. Lorna was readily available to answer questions. She was firm, frank and confident in her dealings with all parties involved, and I knew she was battling with my best interests in mind. She earned my trust early and never wavered in her support of my efforts to move forward with refinancing without complications. As a result, we completed the refi within the time it would have taken had the extension been accepted, and Lorna was instrumental in making sure my ex-wife, her attorney, the title company and all parties knew of my sense of urgency and desire to complete this transaction without wasting the court’s time on frivolous motions. She is a dedicated professional, and I will gladly recommend her services.

I recently hired Lorna to represent me and I must say I was completely satisfied with my decision to hire her. She had all of the qualities I was looking for in a lawyer: she was professional, understanding, great at communicating and answering questions, agressive, and money conscious. She always took the time to answer my questions and listen to my concerns to give me the best advice possible. I always felt like she had my best interest in mind throughout my entire case and I would highly recommend Lorna if you are looking for a high powered attorney who will have your best interest in mind and who will get the job done without wasting your time and money.

Michael J. Vaghaiwalla, Esq. Reviews
AWESOME!!!!!!! I have nothing but the best to say about Mr vaghaiwalla and his firm!!! Through Mr Vaghaiwalla and his firm I have absolutely nothing that can explain how phenomenal they are!!!!!First off I am a single dad with full custody of my two amazing young children and for that I owe everything to Mr Vaghaiwalla and firm! Not to leave out Liz Santiago whom with her help I learned how to use a computer !!! The firm gave a father a new perspective on what I considered to be a joke of a legal system and shed new light on how, when done properly, that the truth and best judgement will prevail and prevail it did!!! I paid for multiple consultations from other attorneys and am so fortunate that I took the time to find the right one for myself and my children! Once I spoke with Michael I felt that good feeling and he did not approach my situation as every other attorney did and for that I chose to hire him! The best decision I have ever made hands down! Thank you Mr Vaghaiwalla and you too Liz as for you have given my children nothing but the best future ever! You have really changed our lives for the better!! For that I am forever grateful !!!

I should like to express my appreciation for the remarkable services rendered by both Mr. Michael Vaghaiwalla and Ms. Liz Santiago in executing my uncontested divorce.
From the moment I met Michael in my initial consultation, I knew he was the attorney to best represent me. It was my intention to interview three attorneys, but Michael impressed me from the moment he began to discuss my options. My search began and ended with him. I brought gourmet chocolates for him to share with the office as a thank you for his time and I could see that he was taken aback by my gesture. Mike was so very kind and patient with me. I knew that he would continue to be thus throughout my case.
I wanted you to know that I appreciate all the hard work Mike and Liz applied to my case. I never thought a divorce was going to happen in my life, and it was a very scary scenario for me. Even beginning the procedure was very frightening after so many years of marriage! But they took me by the hand and led me through it all. I am so grateful to them and look where I am now – I’m on the other side! I have gotten to know them both very well; as have my kids. It has been emotionally stressful for all of us, but they have been incredibly supportive. Now it is on to another stage of our lives; a much more positive one.
I appreciate everything they did for me. Beyond legal advice, the care as a human being through each phone call, email, and draft/redraft/re-redraft! Michael and Liz make an outstanding team. It was a real pleasure to work with comforting personalities in a professional environment.
“Thank You” The words seem so very simple, but they carry with them all my appreciation! Thank you so much for everything! The girls and I have and always will, remember what you’ve done for us and how you’ve touched our lives. You’re ‘The Best’! What a great team!

Hired Michael for my divorce case, which unfortunately turned into a 3 year ordeal due to delays caused by former spouse. Michael worked with me throughout all the delays, providing guidance and patience. Would definitely recommend the firm and Mr. Vaghaiwalla.

Excellent Attorney!!! Highly recommended!!!
Michael is the type of attorney you want to hire immediately. He is very professional and knowledgeable, yet patient, caring and down to the earth. Michael is sincere, always takes his time to listen to my situation. He was very responsive when I need my questions answered. Michael did an excellent job during the deposition with my son’s mother. His questions were specific and crafty, and the outcome exceeded my expectation! I am glad to say that I won the case because of him and his diligence! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs professional help in family law areas. You will not regret to have him on your side! Thank you, Michael, with all my gratitude!

Thank you for restoring my faith in people and the legal system. After I filed an appeal due to a terrible final judgement I retained your firm to help salvage my future. You did an awesome job with all the evidence to prove my ex husband lied about his income and ability to work to support himself. New judgement reversed many errors from my original judgement.

Knowledgeable, Professional and Compassionate
From day one on my case, Michael ensured I had information and assistance to make the best decisions for my situation. With his assistance I successfully navigated the sometimes complicated and tedious family court process with a favorable outcome as a result. Michael truly cared and went above and beyond to ensure my case was handled properly. I would recommend him if you need an attorney for any family court matters.

Knowledge & Work Ethic
Throughout my divorce process Michael showed the type of knowledge base and work ethic that was needed to protect my interests from an aggressive Plaintiff. He showed great ability in determining what was emotion and what was plausible fact on both sides to allow the process to settle prior to trial. For anyone facing the uncertainty of divorce Michael with Greater Orlando Family Law is your guy; One meeting and you will agree.

Excellent Attorney with Human Touch
As my attorney in an abuse protection and divorce case, Michael’s services, counsel and results were outstanding. He refiled with the court multiple requests over the period of 8 months for continuance of my protection order to be sure of my legal safety during the divorce proceedings. Michael, along with others, highly recommended I change the locks to the house, get cameras out front and back, and have an exit plan.
In addition, Michael has a very steady and insightful personally that listened to my gripes and wishes, particularly about the deliberate delays my husband was pursuing to avoid a divorce. He consistently worked with opposing counsel to expedite their delivery of court paperwork, and even had to develop a “motion to compel” with the court to get my husband to complete the financial documents required.
Michael also helped me strategize divorce settlement options, giving me pros and cons, so we could land on a beneficial but reasonable offer to present my husband and his attorney. I was favoring one approach and he offered an alternate one that might save me time and money that I had never originally thought of.
Even when it came time for a mediation session, Michael drove me to and from his office so I would avoid running into my husband during the session, as we were in separate rooms due to the protection no-contact order. He is a sensitive but focused professional, a trait that helped in my emotional situations during the mediation when opposing attorney learned my husband had omitted to tell him about critical abuse instances of the case. Michael did get me close to an agreeable divorce settlement beyond what either of us suspected would be accepted. However, the divorce did not progress due to my husband’s death.
I highly recommend Michael for his professionalism, knowledge, experience and humanity as he helped move me along through a frustrating and emotional process.

Dr. Eric Benson is one the most knowledgeable lawyers I’ve hired to represent me. My ex tried to get back child support after 11 years of receiving 800 per month faithfully. Dr. Benson and his team gets 6 Stars from me. He is very organized and know what to do and say in court. If you don’t have a chance of winning, he wont take your case on. He is honest, just and compassionate. Look no further, you want Dr. Benson on your side.

Eric Bensen is an outstanding attorney. I highly recommend him. Mr. Bensen assisted me in a Domestic Violence issue. He helped me with every step. Applying for an injunction, court hearings, and successfully getting a restraining order. He was calming when I felt like my world was falling apart. He knows almost everyone at the courthouse. They all respect, and trust him. He is professional, experienced, and will fight for you!

Highly communicative, efficient, and compassionate
I retained Michelle for assistance in a custody modification case. she took what was a very complicated and frustrating process for me, and provided fast and efficient results. she answered all of my questions, and responded to any inquiry very quickly. I have been struggling with this case for more than a year and she wrapped everything up neatly within a month. I would highly recommend this attorney for anyone who wanted straightforward results with a clearly laid out and easy to understand billing practice. she told me exactly what my retainer would cover and I got no surprise fees. I will definitely retain her services again if needed.

Mrs. Bayhi was thoughtful and considerate of what my family needed and at the same time realistic about the process. I needed a relocation and modification to my parenting plan and she made it happen so smoothly. She communicated with my family and me every step of the way. She was compassionate with everyone involved in our matters, including opposing party. I am so grateful to have found her.
