    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Larry since 2006 when we met at an elder law conference. He has a tremendous amount of knowledge about estate planning and elder law. Although we are in different states, I consult with him regularly to seek his professional opinion because I so highly respect his expertise. He has a tremendous commitment to integrity and he works tirelessly for his clients. He is THE attorney to whom I refer people needing a Delaware estate planning or elder law attorney because I know he will serve them well.
