My company was being sued with frivolous demoralizing accusations. The news of my case went worldwide. Larry fielded every reporter’s questions from CNN to the NY Times (while he was on vacation!!!) Larry along with his outstanding team took an honest aggressive approach and freed my company from the suit. I completely trust Larry Walters whole-heartedly and have no doubts he is sincere and looking out for by best interest. Larry has been my lawyer for over 3 years and I highly recommend Walters Law Group for your representation. He is simply the best.

Lawrence is an excellent attorney, not only for his knowledge, and ability to get results, but most importantly due to his responsiveness and dedication to get things done. Throughout a very complex situation Lawrence made himself completely available to talk (whether by phone, email, Skype, etc), and work out tough and specific solutions for our issues. Highly recommended.

I found Mr.Walters When the county i live in wanted me to close my Adult store saying it was a zoning issues it had been in my local paper and made its way to the world wide web where Mr.Walters commented on a web site so i i contacted him he helped in so many ways he helped me understand i was not in the wrong and lead me the way i needed to go well long story short he sent a letter to the county and with in days he had them ready to run so i now im running my store right where it is and im grandfathered in so im safe he was more than helpful if you need a lawyer Please do yourself a favor and HIRE Mr.Walters

I would recommend him to everyone. He was very thorough, thoughtful, knowledgeable and utmost most understanding. He understands clients financials and is willing to work with the client, which is more important. Highly recommended.

I found Larry on Avvo, and his articles were impressive: full of good information and very articulate. My partner and I hired Larry for a consultation, and it was well worth it. We plan to retain Larry in the near future at the launch of our company.

Normally i hesitate before giving 5/5 on anything, but Larry has absolutely performed as such for us thus far in our current short relationship.
I've had dealings with lawyers in a very few situations. They seemed more about earning a check as opposed to solving problems. Those cases really just draaaged on and on, so that's what i expected here. Contrary to my experience, Larry's immediate advice and work were central to a blazingly fast resolution.
His availability is excellent. He has been consistently responsive on a level that puts to shame even people that I work with on a daily basis. With my past legal needs, i was usually lucky to get a response the next business day.
He has been very informative every step of the way. Telling us what was happening as well as what his thoughts were, all in a timely manner. At times it seemed as if was emailing us while engaged in conversation with the opposition.
Thus far, I've only touched on factors that might show his knowledge, but even that was revealing of his experience.
His trustworthiness has not been tested with us, but that statement itself is a good thing. When considering all the other positive attributes that he exhibits, i can't imaging his trustworthiness being questionable.
He hasn't changed my opinion of lawyers in general, but he has certainly changed my expectations of them.

I endorse this lawyer. I have been reading the avvo answers of this lawyer and always agree with his statements. I just read one of his legal guides and was very impressed. If you are looking for a lawyer, I am sure Lawrence would be a good choice!
