Mr. Krasner handled my matter with diligence, skill and sensitivity. He helped make a very challenging situation manageable and was an extraordinary resource for me throughout. I wholeheartedly recommend him!!
Larry Krasner was my defense attorney in a case in which I was charged with 11 criminal charges. Before we went to trial he got the judge to throw out 7 of the 11 charges, leaving four to contend with. At trial he so completely demolished the prosecution's case that after I was acquitted of the remaining charges the jurors stuck around to meet me and shake my hand and apologize for how the police had treated me! I'd call that a win. Krasner is the kind of attorney that has a passion for fighting injustice, and that passion motivates him to go above and beyond for his clients, meaning that when we went to trial he knew the case inside out and was way ahead of the prosecution and anticipated every trick they tried to pull. Seriously, this guy is the best... and a really awesome guy on a personal level, which is maybe not something you need in an attorney, but if you're going to be in a stressful situation like a trial, it helps to like the person you're with. Thanks, Larry!
I was in deep trouble in Philadelphia in 2000, charged with 13 different misdemeanors, and my bail was set at $1 Million. Larry Krasner stood by my side and fought for me every step of the way until all my charges were dropped. If you're in a tight spot and need a lawyer that will fight for you then you can't do better than Krasner & Long, LLC.
Mr. Krasner is an excellent lawyer. Not only did he save my son from capital punishment, he successfully won the case and saved my son from a LIFETIME in prison. If you need a fair, good lawyer, Mr. Krasner is your man.
I engaged Mr. Larry Krasner as legal counsel for my son based on a recommendation from a trusted friend who had retained him on more than one occasion. Mr. Krasner possesses exceptional communication skills, an empathetic persona, and great knowledge of the law and the PA judicial system. He clearly explained the charges, the possible outcomes and the best course of action to allow my son to prevail - and he delivered. As a result of Mr. Krasner's services, my son can now look towards the bright future he had before his legal challenge, for this, I am forever grateful.
Mr. Krasner acted as counsel for me in three different criminal defense cases involving political arrests and/or civil rights issues. In addition to being professional, he was also personally amicable. Mr. Krasner was extremely knowledgeable on the applicable case law which I feel played a big role in the positive dispensation of each of my cases. Knowing my personal economic hardship, Mr. Krasner offered his services in a very affordable way, and once pro bono, allowing me to secure excellent legal representation that I feel would have otherwise been inaccessible to me. I have and will continue to highly recommend Mr. Krasner to those in need of legal representation
What I most appreciate about Larry Krasner is that he's not just a hard-working, conscientious and ethical lawyer who truly cares about Civil Rights, he is a well-rounded Renaissance man and intellectual, with an expansive knowledge of literature and history. He really seems excited about and engaged with his work.
I am a former client of Mr. Krasner's and can not say enough great things about the quality of his representation. Not only did he win my case and not only was I kept informed throughout the process, but I felt empowered to choose the direction of my case at every juncture. Mr. Krasner and his staff treated me with respect and provided me with extensive information. They also had a great sense of humor and were a pleasure to work with through a difficult time.
Larry Krasner has a long history of showing up for his clients and going beyond the call of duty to fight for their interests. When I was arrested at a demonstration, Larry handled the case pro bono (as well as the other ten defendants in the case.) He has done this sort of work for hundreds of people in the Delaware Valley. He pays attention to detail and keeps his clients apprized of the strategy he intends to use. He is very well connected in Philadelphia and the region and knows how to approach the case with the right support from experts. He is the sort of lawyer you can turn to when you are in a squeeze and know that he will go to bat for you. In my experience, he's one of the finest attorneys in Philadelphia.
When I was arrested for protesting (along with 12 others), Larry Krasner took on our case. We had just spent a day in jail, and we expected that the prosecutors would take our case seriously and pursue it vigorously. It made some of us very nervous! Larry met with us to answer questions and tell us what to expect, and he kept us well-informed along the way to trial. His preparation was most impressive. He got us ready for the trial, meeting with us to review testimony and reassure. He telephoned each one of us the night before the trial! He is not just an expert lawyer, but he is a great communicator with a sense of humor and great feeling for the causes in which he gets involved. I am so grateful for his help!
