  • Richard Alan Jaffe

    Larry is one of the best and brighest lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is a strong advocate not only for his own clients, but for all the injured workers in the State of Pennsylvania. When I have to refer a client in the Pittsburgh I could think of no one else I would trust my clients to than Larry.
