Stranger,Lawyer,Friend
Larry is an outstanding lawyer, he is honest, reliable, and very easy to talk to. He works very hard to get the best results possible for his clients. Larry did a great job with my case, but didn't stop there, he went on to become a friend. I highly recommend Larry to anyone who is in need of a lawyer.

Family Court Matter
I worked with Larry on to manage my divorce proceedings. He was fair, competent, knowledgable, and he helped get my case heard in a timely manner. I was pleasantly surprised how easy the process was, and both my ex and I were satisfied with Larry's assistance. I would recommend him anytime.

Great Attorney
Working with Larry on our refinance was a great experience. He walked me and my wife through all of the documentation thoroughly. He made sure we understood and were comfortable with all of the documents we signed. It was like having a family member over that you can trust helping out with their knowledge of the litigation. I would recommend Larry to any and all that need on the "Rhode" legal assistance.

Very satisfied with The Rhode Lawyer!
My husband and I hired Larry to help us complete our home refinance documents. He prepared all of our closing documents and came to our kitchen table to sit down with us and sign them. He made the process smooth and efficient and was a delight to work with. We would hire him again in an instant! He also followed all heath guidelines concerning covid, so you can rest assured that is not a worry.

The best at what he does
From start to finish, Larry and his staff were knowledgeable, welcoming, professional. Any questions you needed answered, he was there. If he couldn't get to it right away, he would definitely research and answer as promptly as he could. From start to finish he informed me as to my injury options, was completely candid about the possible results, and guided me to the best outcome for all parties involved. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone in litigation. Do yourselves a favor and go with a professional.

The cream of the Crop when it comes to lawyers.
In the world of catchy slogans, cool logos and fancy commercials, it’s hard to discern who will have your best interest at heart when your scared and unsure what to do. I couldn’t have been more appreciative of what Larry has done for me and my family through one of the toughest summers of my life. Larry is not a 9-5 lawyer, he really is a 24/7 text or call anytime with questions or concerns. There were times when I would be up at night worrying about my case and what to do and not expecting a response I would text him and instantly he would write back, it was unbelievable. He’s the common mans lawyer who I’ve learned to trust, because he’s earned it, not by his words but by his actions. Larry is the epitome of the word “loyal”. I’m glad I know him and I highly recommend him.

Client/Friend
Larry is compassionate, reliable, trustworthy and hardworking. Larry never gave up and he worked hard to get me the money I deserve. He was even able to decrease my medical bills. Getting into a car accident is scary enough and it was comforting to know that Larry and his team were with me every step of the way.

Trusting and passionate about his clients
Larry helped me greatly through a family law matter. He looked out for my best interest and did not try to drive up costs by floundering around with the process. He was well prepared and professional, and I came out the other side in the best situation I could. Thanks again Larry.

Highly respected professional
I work as a law firm administrator here in Rhode Island, and have had the opportunity to work directly with Larry on several occasions. Larry is a conscientious and diligent attorney who has exhibited honesty and professionalism time and time again. I respect Larry and recommend him highly.

Personal Injury
I was injured on the job and Workes Comp denied my claim. So I called Larry and he not only took my case but offered to visit my home if I wasn't able to meet at his office. Needles to say he won the case . But even further in the process of checking my file he found an additional injury that was not settled and got me an additional re-imbursement He is very meticulous to detail in addition to being very courteous and understanding, he really cares. A real pro!

“I had a trial yesterday. I went to court fully expecting to get convicted. I fought this charge on principle and won. I just want to thank Larry who represented me. It’s not the first time. Without Larry’s help my ex wife would have escaped to Australia with my 4 children. I owe you Larry more than I could ever repay. Thanks.”

Shockingly Incompetent
My case began by being handed off to the Law Offices of Larry Signore from my initial phone call to D'Oliveira & Associates. Once I made the appointment with Mr. Signore's, I had a very difficult time finding the office as it was unlabeled and did not even provide a suite number. At the onset, I was lead to believe that I could expect a large settlement from the insurance company, only to be left with a tiny fraction of that original figure. Half-way through covering my case, I was handed off to another lawyer from their office with no advance notice. Normally this would not have bothered me too much, however, I was in court early in the morning expecting the one I had hired in the first place. As my case continued, the lawyers representing me, Kenneth Haupt & Lawrence Signore, let time drag on, constantly forgot important issues I brought to them, and undervalued my settlement figure. I was the one who encouraged my lawyer to approach the opposition with a higher number than their initial low offer. Their reason for wanting to accept the initial low offer? They were long-time friends. Friends aside, business is business. After I received a higher, acceptable amount in response from the insurance company, I agreed to settle. However, I still had an outstanding claim for owed vacation/personal time I had earned from my job. At the time of signing, I reiterated to my lawyers that I would sign only if it wouldn't affect that outstanding claim. They assured me again and again that it would be fine and I could still fight for it afterwards. Despite my better judgement, I trusted my lawyers and signed. Now I am left hundreds of dollars in the hole, because they lied to settle the case faster. I can not even begin to describe my outrage at how incompetent this law office has been. From being talked down to (including insulting remarks at times), neglecting important case issues, to knowingly pushing forward to close a case that still had remaining claims; if you were looking for a great lawyer, look elsewhere!
