Attorney Lawrence Menkes is the law advocate for our young granddaughter and has been for the past three years. During this time he gained her trust and friendship as he fought to protect and ensure her well being in and out of court. He has shown remarkable endurance and unwavering focus for advocating what’s best for her. Our family is eternally grateful for his compassion, commitment and courage under relentless opposition.

Larry definitely goes above and beyond his duties in advocating for children. He took significant time to get to know my daughter -and continues to make time for her - and makes himself available by phone and in person. Throughout a very stressful, complicated, legal process Larry stayed objective, involved and fully invested in achieving the best possible outcome for my daughter. He returns contact quickly and explains legal issues and potential solutions in easily understandable language. He de escalated stress for my family with his legal knowledge and experience, but also through his genuine concern for my daughter's wellness. I know he has other clients but anytime I interact with him I feel like my case is his only one.

Larry was fast and efficient in helping me with my case. He explained the process to me in terms that were easy to understand. I was pleased with the outcome of my experience and I am confident in Larry's skill and expertise. I will be happy to refer him or work with him in the future.
