Below are client reviews posted online that we believe will give you a representative idea of what it's like to work with this lawyer.
When you have never had a run in with the law your world turns upside down in an instant when you are falsely accused of serious, potentially life changing charges. Lawrence was there for me and brought calm to the situation from my first call, even after normal office hours. He really went above and beyond for me with every question and concern. Lawrence put forward the right information for the detective and DA to make it so charges were not even put forward. My advice, hire him and have him in your corner from the beginning, he is a true professional and knows what to do to fight for you. Mike - August 1, 2019
I was facing serious jail time. Lawrence made me no promises but set me at ease with his knowledge and expertise of the law and my situation. He kept me up to speed on all developments in my case and was easy to reach and talk to. He skillfully negociated probation for me as a first offender AND helped me after my probation officer falsely placed me on a curfew. He is, hands down, the best at what he does!!

I’m so grateful for his help. I was facing violent charges that carried 23 years imprisonment. With his expertise, it helped my case dramatically so that I can get my life back on track without having to serve time. I can be a mother to my son clean and sober today. Thank you so much for your help! Alexis - January 10, 2022
I was charged with a sexual crime and helped me all the way through everything. Was able to not end up the registry and serve zero time. Absolutely fantastic, extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend for anything. Anonymous - January 22, 2022
I should be sitting in prison but Im not because of this man. I was forced to get out of my vehicle at gunpoint by Marietta PD for accused seatbelt violation. I was also illegally searched during a pat down. He was nearly positive and showed incredible confidence in winning the case whereas other lawyers were quick to assume pleas. He was personable and kept me up to date on the case during the process. Then personally called me when he had gotten my case dismissed. By far the best lawyer I couldve had. He gave me a second chance at life when the system was ready to bury me. Blaine Forsman - April 13, 2020
