    • I recommend Kerry Lawrence.
    • I hired Kerry more than 3 years ago.
    • Kerry handled my Construction & Development matter.

    Kerry is a fantastic lawyer! He is fair, fast and didn't confuse us with language we didn't understand. If you have had trouble with your general contractor and as a result have liens from subs Kerry is definitely the right attorney.
    Thank you Kerry!

    Mr. Lawrence has a great deal of knowledge and worked very hard to resolve my case in the most effecient manner. He was upfront with the estimated costs for the action before I decided to proceed. Overall it was a terrific result from a bad situation.

    • I do not recommend Kerry Lawrence.
    • I hired Kerry more than 3 years ago.
    • Kerry handled my Debt Collection matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I would actually recommend this lawyer if you want an academic. He has great knowledge of construction law and, as I understand it, actually participated in drafting some of the legislation. He also gives many speeches. All of this is fine but doesn't resolve cases. I was particularly unhappy with his billings. They list activities but are not specific to dates and times. It is impossible to figure out what the hourly billing rate is. Also, although we were planning to go to mediation, he suggested that it would be a good idea to at least clear a potential appointment with an arbitrator in case mediation failed. We never went to arbitration but there was a $1500 bill from the arbitrator for checking his schedule. When I questioned this, Kerry became incensed and actually paid the arbitrator himself . He then put that bill on our bills from him. I never received an explanation of why it cost that much to check his schedule. He also charged us $100 for forwarding a fax that we already had.

    Kerry is well studied and quite knowledgable. However the effort is not there to gain results. Contract law from the non-attorney end is not a bottomless bucket to pay billable hours. Resolution is king. Our dealings with him left us the feeling that we were better of to pay the client extra money instead of even trying to collect what was owed. With multiple clients. BTW, we did collect on two after we tried a different avenue, but never recouped the losses sustained from the billable hours.
