Originally, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. My father was a NYS corrections officer, and my mother a waitress. I have degrees in Human Biology, and Doctorates in Law and Chiropractic. I love practicing DWI defense and injury law. I am of counsel to Cyr and associates, an Ithaca based DWI defense firm.
To learn more about DWI, criminal defense, traffic violations, and injury law in New York, I encourage you to explore our website, books, blog, articles, and You Tube Channel.
I am a co-author of the 2011 and 2013 West-Thomson Publications, Strategies for Defending DWI Cases in New York
http://www.ithacadwi.com. If you have a DWI, criminal, or traffic related matter I urge you to pick up the phone and call us since we can likely answer your legal questions at 607-229-5184. We welcome your call.
Under the Department of Transportation I am certified as a breath test technician, under the guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) I am Certified in the FSTS (Field Sobriety Tests), and I am a member of the NCDD (National College of DUI Defense).
My favorite quote: "Question Authority"
Cash, Check, Credit Card
One of Larry's best qualities as an attorney is his honesty and candor with his clients. He's a straight shooter when it comes to his legal advice and properly managing the expectations of his clients. His wealth of experience as an attorney licensed in three jurisdictions is immense. I had the privilege of being consulted by Larry on an issue of how Florida laws would impact his NY client. Larry's spot on analysis and practical approach to his client's dilemma impressed me a great deal. He is now my "go to guy" in Upstate NY.
