    Larry has been a legal mentor of mine since I was in law school. When I need guidance in a case, he is the man I look to for advice. There is simply no more knowledgeable attorney in Seattle.

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Finegold is widely considered one of the finest criminal defense lawyers on the West Coast, if not the country. He is admired and respected by his colleagues, adversaries, and the courts. I have worked with him as co-counsel on several cases and in a number of cases in which we represented co-defendants. In every instance he has demonstrated extraordinary tactical judgment as well as superior technical ability and skill. He is a superb criminal defense attorney.
