Ultimate Professionals.
Gary Lazarus IS the Ultimate Professional. He listens, cares and does what’s best for his clients. I never saw a lawyer work so hard to help me receive the maximum settlement amount. Arleen Lazarus works in tandem with Gary and together they are a Dynamic Duo. Thanks to Lazarus and Lazarus, I can begin to enjoy life again.

Slip & Fall
Arleen was so wonderful to work with and exceeded our expectation!! We thought our case was not going to be easy to win and Arleen was able to get us more money than anyone thought was possible. Both Arleen and Gary I would highly recommend, they are easy to talk to and care about winning the case for you.

Gary is a MUST!
I was in a car accident over 2 years ago, my first call was to the police, then to my family, and right after it was to Gary. He and his team took care of EVERYTHING! They found me doctors, therapist, where to go for my MRIs. Even was able to find me a place where they could give me a sit down MRI because I am claustrophobic. I and my family who were also involved in the accident were extremely grateful for what Gary did for us and the compensation we received.

A Lawyer You Can Trust that Fights and Wins!
Gary has represented me on two separate occasions with incredible results. I was originally referred to Gary by a good friend after I was hit by a careless driver on my bicycle a few years back. Gary was able to get me the settlement I needed to help cover my medical bills and the damages I incurred. A few months ago I was hit by another careless driver, this time while sitting at a red light. With sever damages to my body and car, Gary's first priority was my well-being and health. Personally checking on me every step of the way and ensuring I had the proper medical care made a big difference in my recovery. When I was concerned about the medical costs, he reassured me that I was making the correct decisions and worked hard to ensure the insurance companies took care of their obligations to me. Gary always had my best interests in mind regardless of the case or its outcome. If you need someone to fight and win for you, then Gary Lazarus is the lawyer and friend you need in your corner. Thank you Gary and Arlene!

Honest, truthful and fantastic lawyer who cares about his clients!
One of the best lawyers I have ever met. He has turned my life around. With his kindness and patience, he listened to my small case, which resulted in a larger case then first anticipated. When I first started with the case, my original lawyer was ineffective, and would never speak to me in person. Surprisingly, I went car shopping after the accident and the car dealer manager heard about my case and gave me Mr. Lazarus phone number. Sure enough, I called him and the biggest surprise was that he asked me to go meet him in person. As soon as I met him, I knew he was the right lawyer and person to fight for me to get justice. The best decision I made in my life was to fire the old attorney and higher Mr. Lazarus. He gave me comfort through the whole process and I believed in him through the end. He proved his professionalism by following through with his word. He is very professional, knowledgable, honest and strongly believes in himself. These great attributes of Mr. Lazarus resulted in us winning the case. Mr. Lazarus went above and beyond. Amazingly it's over - and I don't regret hiring him. Thank you Mr.Lazarus for everything and I will recommend you to everyone who needs someone to fight for justice.

Great Representation
I had an accident last year that recently closed around two months ago. Gary was great. He kept me in informed, he explained to me what exactly I needed to do, and most importantly he asked me how I was feeling. He went above and beyond a business transaction. Gary was human and had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend Gary as he provided superb representation for me on my case. The outcome was worth the wait to complete the case.

Mission completed
We had a very complex case with a slightly chance of winning which Was litigated up to the court of Appeals. Every attorneys said that the law is against us and that little loop we had will be barely enough to win. He never gave up and tried the impossible to make possible. And he won.

Respectful Trustworthy Attorney
Gary just settled a complicated personal injury case for me. Through out the process he was available to explain the process and legal difficulties to me. I do not reside in Florida. I met with him once when I was in Florida and we spent a lot of time discussing the case. He was also present for my deposition. He also recommended to a fine real estate attorney I highly recommend Gary Lazarus !

Unexpected surprise
I was very impressed with Mr. Lazarus which if knew me takes considerable to do. He was more concerned about seeing that my situation was handled than seeing how much money he could make off of me. He impressed me enough that I will actually suggest others to go to for help.
