  • Barbara Jean Kuehn

    I highly recommend Lawrence as a family law attorney. He is a professional and committed attorney, works very hard for his clients and fights for them.

  • Clifton Jon Lurkis

    I previously worked for Lawrence Viola for two and a half-years prior to moving to Southern California. I can honestly say that if I ever needed an attorney to litigate a family law matter on my behalf, Lawrence would be my first choice.
