    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.

    Our experience with Larry Linville has been excellent.

    Larry communicates clearly and efficiently. He is open for discussion and willing to strategize on best approach. He has listened to information we provide and tailored his own approach to help us achieve the impression we want to put forward to difficult clients. His experience and background have allowed us the venting we all need, and directed the actual communication with adversaries in a useful and meaningful way.

    I want to thank Larry and his staff for the help they have provided and for the measure of reassuring perspective they have added to some difficult times.

    I genuinely and highly recommend the services provided by Larry Linville.

    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.

    I was really very stressed and frustrated when I got this lawsuit, I had no idea since I went to the Labor & Industries contractors class. We had never imagined the outcome of the proceedings, we thought we would lose our business. We learned so much in this litigation process. We appreciate your expertise, which is your excellent legal experience and knowledge. You have handled our case very well, including good arrangements for our Chinese interpreter, saving our time, even if we speak Chinese. Prompt information and email updates were very helpful. We feel confident because you are our attorney. THANK YOU Larry!

    Do you like to be a winner? Of course you do. To accomplish that in the legal world you have to hire the smartest lawyer in the room. Larry Linville hands down is the smartest. If you add his wit, integrity and decades of uparalleled legal knowledge what you get is the best legal representation around. I pity the lawyer who has to argue anything against Larry. Over the years Larry has represented our small construction company in several cases. The amount of time, energy, passion and generosity he has put into helping us is hard to quantify. We owe him a debt of gratitude for representing us so well. There is no other attorney I would even consider calling. Oh, did I forget to mention we WON every single case Larry fought on our behalf? Don't be that other guy. Be the one standing in the winners cirlce. Call Larry Linville.

    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.
    • I hired Lawrence more than 3 years ago.
    • Lawrence handled my Contracts & Agreements matter.

    What I like about Linville Law Firm is that it is a family firm. I personally work with Larry Linville who has been my go to guy for contracts for years. Larry has two sons Christian and David who are also wonderful attorneys. When I walk into the firm I am always surprised at how warm and friendly everyone is. Ever face you see has a smile on it from the legal secretary, to the paralegals, to the attorney’s everyone seems happy to see you, and happy to be at work. As the managing partner Larry had obviously done a great job building such a wonderful firm. When I hear my peers talk about how much they loath going to see their lawyer I always think to myself I actually like seeing Larry and the rest of the team at Linville Law Firm. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like having to deal with contract disputes but hey that’s part of the job. I take comfort in knowing that I have a friendly atmosphere to go to. I always mention to my coworkers, family, and friends that experiences with attorneys aren’t a miserable experience, if you have the right attorney! It is with great confidence that I recommend Larry Linville and the team at Linville Law Firm. They are honest (even if it is not in your favor) they are up front (with cost and timelines) and they are always friendly and willing to help. Do yourself a favor and see for yourself!

    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.
    • I hired Lawrence 1-3 years ago.
    • Lawrence handled my Construction & Development matter.

    I just wanted to take the time to tell others what an amazing experience I had working with Lawrence Linville. No one like to be involved in litigation, however, Larry makes it as easy as it can possibly be. My small construction business was involved in a lawsuit last year. Larry was communicative, aggressive and easy to work with. I appreciated his no nonsense style and pleasant demeanor. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.
    • I hired Lawrence more than 3 years ago.
    • Lawrence handled my Commercial matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I own a small sheet metal fabrication shop in Longview WA. I went to one of Larry's seminars sponsored by the Lower Columbia Building Industry Association. A year or so later I called Larry with a quesion. He picked up the phone (no screening!), answered my question (I can't remember it) That was maybe 20 years ago. Larry has answered my questions ever since. He says he thinks of himself as my outsourced business partner. His time is valuable. His invoices are fair. His help has been invaluable.

    • I recommend Lawrence Linville.
    • I hired Lawrence more than 3 years ago.
    • Lawrence handled my Construction & Development matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Larry has been the construction and contracts lawyer for my company for well over twenty years. His knowledge and experience is definitely first rate. Based on his advice and our willingness to follow it, we have never been sued, never been to court and only taken two clients to arbitration for non-payment in all these years, and we are a sizable firm. Larry's approach is as unique as his personality, so depending on your comfort level with brilliant eccentricity, you'll love him or you'll move on. Regarding his honesty and integrity, in all these years I've never had reason to doubt either. Larry is very committed to his clients.

    • Lawrence handled my Construction & Development matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Would recomend Larry without a doubt. Larry has done work for our company for 10+ years. He has always done a great job for us,costruction contracts, collections,abritration, disputes, construction claims, liens and much more. He is laid back to deal with, but a tiger when he has to be. He doesn't make a mountain out of a mole hill and he is fair and honest on how he charges. We will continue to use him in the future

    Larry is THE BEST Lawyer that we have ever met & had the pleasure to do business with. He is very knowledgeable and witty. When you think if the word "Lawyer" you go "ugh", but NOT with Larry Linville. Larry is not just our company lawyer, he has educated us how to protect our company with valuable information from his seminars on contracts and lien laws. He knows how to make a boring subject lively and enjoyable. Larry writes very effective collection letters to our past due customers which have saved our company time and money in court dates and costs. Larry is the best! We will never stray! We highly recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer!
