Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I have worked with Larry on several cases recently in which his expertise was instrumental in helping parties reach a settlement and closure in their divorce cases. He is extremely detail orientated, timely, and knowledgeable about all family law matters. My specific cases with Larry involved multiple pensions and federal benefits, and he delivered crucial information and expertise in a very helpful manner. I will continue to work with Larry and recommend him highly for QDRO drafting and consulting. His fees are also very reasonable. Thank you Larry Gorin!
