Make the right decision
Dr. Wanshel was very well recommended by a friend of mine and he was right. After 2 years trying to get divorce, my previews lawyer didn't get anything done. I hired Larry one month before final hiring. He was totally honest since the beginning, informing me that he would not promise anything because of how advance my case was. Well, that was three month ago and I still cannot believe how he pulled such a great deal for me. He did, in a couple of weeks, more than my previews lawyer did in 2 years. Since the first day I felt I was well represented. He has 40 years of experience. Very knowledgeable, respectful, honest and the most important part is that he gets things done. In a couple of weeks Larry lowered my childsupport in a half from my previous lawyer numbers and even made my allimony completely desapeared. Dr Wanshel answer all my questions, phone calls and concerns right away. He always called me back and made sure I was informed about my case and always knew what was going on. I could not be happier with him. I am recommending him to everyone of my friends I know they need professional advice. Do the smart thing, give him a call and you will save a lot of money and get the best in your case like I did

Takes the time to help
I am not an actual client because it turned out that my problem is not in his scope of law and it is possible that I do not even have a case. However, this man personally took my phone call and spoke with me in detail about my issue for 30 minutes or his time. He was very straightforward and honest with his opinion of what I should do. Many attorneys might have suggested that I bring in everything so that they could go over it to determine if they could take they case, while never actually planning to just to get an office fee out of me. He absolutely did nothing of the sort. He told me his opinion based on his knowledge and flat out that he could not do it. He is the type of attorney that most people look for and never get lucky enough to find.

Excellent attorney
We are fortunate to know attorney Wanshel for over 35 years, since all our litigation cases are referred to him with no exception. We seldom recommend anyone, but Larry is the exception. All our referrals have been satisfied with him and he has not lost a case. He is very thorough, honest and competent attorney. If a case does not have possibilities he lets you know immediately. He has one of the few law offices that answer the phone with personal attention and do not put you through the agony of leaving a message with a service or recorder. We highly recommend his legal services.

Honest and Knowledgeable
Mr. Laurence Wanshel was extremely helpful to me during a difficult time. He walked me through the foreclose process. He kept me fully informed and helped me make the best decision for my particular issues. I knew I was in good and capable hands at all times. The bank had been giving me the run-around for 2 years. But Larry was able to negotiate with them on my behalf and he was even able to get me the funds I needed to move to a new place. I am very grateful to Larry. I highly recommend him to anyone.

Laurence Wanshel is an Outstanding attorney
Laurence Wanshel is an outstanding attorney who fought for me and won my case. He told me what to expect and advised me on the best choices. I was able to speak with him directly when I wanted and always told me what was happening with my case. I am extremely happy with having him as my attorney.

If you need an honest lawyer you need to see Larry.
I remember a couple of years ago after being ripped off by another lawyer finding a new lawyer wasn't an easy task. So I was recomended Larry Wanshel as somebody that could actually go after this lawyer that stole money from an escrow account where our money was. He did the job correctly and the lawyer in question got disbarred and he got a good part of our money back. We were very happy with the outcome. After that he has became the guy we have in standby for any of our legal needs.
