    • I do not recommend Laurence Smith.
    • I hired Laurence 1-3 years ago.
    • Laurence handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired the firm at first. Had a different lawyer who could not even write letters as a ten year old.
    then switched to Larry. He was practically out of touch, despite abundance of evidence he mumbled his way through hearing and could not even bring one fact to the Judge's attention.
    Avoid Mens' right firm and specially this attorney.

  2. Do not waste your time or MONEY

    • I do not recommend Laurence Smith.
    • I hired Laurence more than 3 years ago.
    • Laurence handled my Child Custody matter.

    Very very disappointed at his lack of a simple thing he could have done that would have saved me 15k in fees including a new attorney.
    Do NOT hire him. Please do your research first before handing over thousands of dollars. Be warned !!!

      I am highly suspicious that this person was actually a client of mine.

    • I recommend Laurence Smith.
    • I hired Laurence more than 3 years ago.
    • Laurence handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I retained Mr. Smith in a Divorce/Custody hearing. Initially, he held onto the retainer without actively pursuing the case but once the ball got rolling, he was completely responsible and two steps ahead of the other attorney involved.

    • I recommend Laurence Smith.
    • I hired Laurence more than 3 years ago.

    Laurence Smith is tenacious in court and when representing me throughout the legal process of divorce. Further, Mr. Smith is very responsive to my questions, concerns and needs. Mr. Smith's legal team is also very supportive of me, the client, and always responsive to my questions and concerns.
    I definitely recommend Laurence Smith and his legal firm for your legal issues, especially the divorce process.
