Mr LaRaus helped me with my divorce. It was an emotional and difficult time for me. He was easy to talk to and was always there to answer any questions I had. He was sympathetic and professional and made me feel confident that he was the right attorney for me. He handled the case extremely well. I am very pleased to have him on my side.

Larry helped me through a very difficult time. Together we reviewed what goals I wanted to achieve for my children and myself. His knowledge and expierence helped me complete my divorce and avoid future legal issues. A great communicator and a positive force during a difficult time. Thank you.

Larry supported and defended me throughout an (ongoing) parental-alienation divorce. He is knows the law and court procedure well, articulates my position strongly and clearly, and is well respected by his colleagues and the bench.
Having been around divorce attorneys more than to my liking, it is striking to me how honest Larry is, not only in respect of the court, but, more importantly, with his clients. Too often I've seen attorneys tell their clients what they want to hear, getting their hopes us, pocketing sizeable retainers, overstaffing the cases, rapidly depleting the retainers, and not delivering results commensurate with the heightened expectations.
In my case, I came to Larry after I had made a number of significant mistakes while being represented by prior counsel, who did not provide me with the advice I needed at the time. Although I was fighting an uphill battle (primarily to regain a relationship with my alienated children), Larry did not sugar coat my situation, but gave me an honest assessment of the challenges we faced and worked hard to improve my situation.
If I had engaged Larry at the outset, I would have avoided a lot of emotional pain and unnecessary expense. I went into my divorce thinking it was going to be amicable enough, but was blind-sided by my ex-spouse and her aggressive counsel. If you are up against a moneyed and/or hostile spouse, you would be well-advised to engage Larry as your first and only attorney.
