Attorney Profile

Laurie A. Lacoste is the founder of Lacoste Law Inc. Based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, she provides a variety of services for her clients throughout Rockingham and Strafford counties. Admitted to practice in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts, Ms. Lacoste is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Hampshire, the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit.

A significant portion of Ms. Lacoste's practice involves her representation of people whose marriages are ending and who are thus having to deal with issues regarding property division, spousal and child support, and child custody and visitation. A forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary, she also has extensive experience in mediation, negotiations and collaborative law, and this often allows her to help her clients reach an accord on those matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. Ms. Lacoste's other family law experience has encompassed prenuptial agreements and grandparents' rights, and she has also assisted clients who have already been divorced and are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting court orders.

Ms. Lacoste's practice also includes estate planning and administration and her litigation experience extends to contract breaches, landlord-tenant disputes, personal injury, unfair trade practices, collections and employment law matters. Her successful track record in all of her professional endeavors along with her high degree of ethics have led to her receiving an "Excellent" peer review rating through Avvo. A recipient of a Bachelor of Arts cum laude from the former Notre Dame College in Manchester, New Hampshire, Ms. Lacoste pursued her legal education at the Massachusetts School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor cum laude in 2003.
