About Me

Lawrence Lazzara is an aggressive and personable personal injury attorney.  He is admitted to practice law in Arizona, New York, New Jersey and the New Jersey Federal District Court. Lawrence earned his law degree from New York Law School, located just six blocks from the World Trade Center. While in law school, he was honored with three Certificate of Achievement" awards for academic excellence and was named to the Dean's List four times. Lawrence finished at the top 5% of his class in Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, and Trial Advocacy.

After graduating from New York Law School, Lawrence continued advancing his legal education by enrolling in Temple Law School's nationally recognized litigation program - the LL.M. in Trial Advocacy Program. The LL.M. curriculum blended lectures, faculty demonstrations, individual instruction and student performance into a year-long experience designed to develop and hone the skills of the attorney who wished to litigate complex cases. The program emphasized creating the theory of the case, understanding of the advocacy process, and carrying the theory into practice.

While working on his LL.M. degree, Lawrence also accepted a one-year appointment as judicial law clerk for the New Jersey State Superior Court. During his one year appointment, Lawrence mediated small claims cases, conducted extensive legal research and writing projects, and served as liaison between the judiciary and its litigants. After completing his judicial clerkship, Lawrence entered the criminal law field where he litigated criminal cases in the capacity of Assistant district Attorney for the Bronx County District Attorney's Office in New York City.

Since moving to Arizona, Lawrence has worked on a variety of cases involving diverse areas of the law, such as Personal Injury, Criminal Law, Contract Litigation, and Domestic Relations. Lawrence also participates in the Wills for Heroes Program where he drafts wills at no charge for Arizona's police officers and firefighters.

As a member of the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice, Lawrence has access to invaluable resources that enable him to provide effective and efficient legal services to his clients
