This was a very difficult case, with a lot of information, with several files in Mexico´s courts, and lots of false accusations against my father. Larry Katz was able to present to the judge the truth about my sister´s abduction. He knows very well the law and he is an experienced lawyer.
This is the kind of person you need if there are any complications that could arise in your case. He has years of experience and has dealt with almost any situation that could occur. After I retired I needed to reduce my alimony because I had substantial reduction in income. I tried to negotiate directly with my former spouse to avoid legal fees but, I could not finalize a reasonable agreement with her. I was very concerned that my ex-wife would hire an over aggressive attorney if I went to court. I went to see Mr. Katz for a consultation and then retained him to represent me. I found him to be a very good listener and he was also able to explain things in a realistic way so that you could understand your rights but not have unrealistic expectations. He was able reach an agreement with my ex-wife to terminate my alimony without a court fight. I felt very relieved after this was resolved and was very pleased with the result. I highly recommend him.
I felt so great and secure with Mr Katz representing my case.
Any questions I had, he would answer in less than 24 hours.
He has great connections in France to transfer or translate any legal Documents
Mr. Katz is of course extremly knowledgable but very efficient.
I would strongly recommend Mr Katz for any international cases.
Mr. Katz has been the key in solving the case of the abduction of my son perpetrated by my ex wife. I had previously used the services of four attorneys but neither of them could find and implement any strategy for locating and returning him to me. I was desperate after almost one year without knowing where he was.
Since I met Mr. Katz I have been impressed with his knowledge and experience about international abduction cases.
I want to express that after my four previous experiences I was pretty skeptical about lawyers reassurance on the solution of my case. Mr. Katz has been very sincere and he didn’t hide the difficulties in front of us. First of all he had to correct mistakes from my former attorney and after his strategy brought me back my son.
My son was in another country and during this process Mr. Katz experience has been the guide for my Canadian Lawyers and in a week my son was finally in the USA.
Back in the US we have been subjected to a very unethical and litigious lawyer representing my ex-wife but we have been able to stay within the course and he has obtained custody for me plus we got plenty of abduction prevention measures.
This one has been an extremely long and complex case and Mr. Katz handled with such a great professionalism that rarely I have seen. I felt that he cares about what he does and he does it well.
I hope my review can help someone else in a desperate situation like I was.
I was beside myself when my husband filed for divorce and wanted to take everything (since he claimed he had worked so hard for it). I just knew that there was something that could be done. It could not have been the end of my marriage and life and I was going to walk away with nothing. Impossible!! Then I met with Larry Katz. I was beyond amazed with the issues that were resolved in my case. Alimony, possession of the house and child support. He gave me hope and definitely a life after divorce. I couldn't have accomplished anything if it wasn't for him. I owe him my life. With my eyes closed I would hire him and definitely refer him to everyone that I know.
I am extremely grateful to have had Larry represent me. In International Family Law I would say he has few, if any, equals.
Larry is a quick, lateral thinker with a wealth of knowledge who works tirelessly for his clients. Ours was a particularly complex and unique case where all those qualities were put to good use and the result was a positive outcome for us. In a stressful situation like that it was very comforting to have a lawyer to lean on and I really can't recommend him highly enough.
My name is Tara L Christie and my son who was born in America, a United States Citizen and had an American Passport was abducted by his father who is Turkish and living in Istanbul, Turkey. My son and were residing in Turkey for our son to attend and receive International education only and never gave up our permanent residency in Miami, Florida as Ali's attendance for school was for a specific period of time. I had a court ordered and adopted agreement in the USA. The agreement specifically stated and had jurisdictional language in our agreement that it was for a specific time period and we never relinquished residency in the USA.
On the summer of 2014 when my son's summertime share with his father in Istanbul, Turkey was finished and my son was to return home to the USA; Miami, Florida I was sent by the father and his attorney Kate Hamilton that he was not returning my son as per our USA court ordered and adopted agreement. My son who is an American Citizen and had an American Passport, which the father's attorney knew was abducted by his father and I had no idea when I would see my son again.
Had it not been for Lawerence Katz who immediately filed a Hauge Convention Child Abduction Motion, as well as had experience in child abduction and more importantly International child abduction with his vast knowledge, contacts and prior experience I do not know when or if I would have seen my son again, as his father had obtained an illegal hold on my son's American Passport and the Turkish govt had allowed this. Within weeks after retaining Mr. Katz my son was returned to me. safe and sound. I would highly recommend Mr. Katz as his swift action lead to my son being returned to me. My gratitude is boundless for this man. There is no better attorney for this!!!!!!!
This lawyer is excellente, charismatic, professional, and cares about the customer. I gave a case to him that it was impossible to solve, and he did solved the problem like it was very simple. He was always in touch and answering all my questions, either by phone or by email.
Mr. Katz helped me to bring my daughter back from Istanbul, Turkey.
When all hope was gone, and I truly thought I would not see my child again,
I was introduced to this brilliant attorney. It was a Miracle to have my daughter
back with me in the United States. I highly recommend him to anyone with a divorce, child custody, or international abduction case. Thank you Mr. Katz on behalf of myself and my daughter. You are quite simply the Best.
I found Larry after extensive research at a very difficult time after my children were kept by their father during visitation in another country. He knew the law in this country-- and in the other country as well. He was professional and considerate.
My children and I will forever be grateful for his help.
