Everyone complains about too many lawyers....until they need one. Eric is that ONE. Period. We are lucky to know Eric as a person and as an attorney. On both fronts, Eric has been outstanding.
Mr. Rayz is an outstanding attorney that is responsive to the client's issues. He consistently offers advice and counsel on alternatives available and the anticipated outcomes of such decisions. I will use Mr. Rayz again in the future and would recommend him to those seeking legal counsel.
Lawrence assisted us in a complicated litigation. His knowledge of the rules of court was excellent and helped us achieve a very favorable result.
Many people have the unfortunate need for an attorney to handle many aspects within the court system. While I have used many attorney's in the past, Lawrence has a special dedication to his clients and their needs. I would strongly recommend anyone to consult with Lawrence and his firm for making any decisions.
Lawrence was attentive and went beyond what I expected. His straightforward, no nonsense and attentive approach really helped and impressed me! I hired Lawrence more than once and will continue to do so in the future.
