Highly recommend
Mr. Joseph Landy is an excellent attorney who works hard for his client. He is highly intelligent, knows the law,very experienced, and still has compassion for his client's situation. Mr Landy was nothing but nice and helpful. He helped me every step of the way and was patient enough to explain to me what was going on. The staff was also very professional and answered all my questions the best they could or would find and answer. I would highly recommend his services for anyone who is in need of a good lawyer.

Attorney Joseph B. Landy
I have had dealings with attorneys in the past, professionally, as well as personally. The attorneys at Lesser Lesser Landy and Smith Law Firm totally made me realize, like everything else, that one should judge on an individual basis, not a blanket assumption. They were responsive to my concerns with clarity, thoroughness, as well as empathy. I felt as if Mr. Landy was my friend, as everyone that I encountered at the firm were friendly. I strongly recommend Lesser Lesser Landy and Smith to anyone in need of legal assistance.

A lawyer you can trust
I can't say enough about Joe Landy and his staff. I was in a car accident and was hit from behind. Thanks to Joe, I won my case. Not only was he knowledgeable, he was reachable whether it was during the week or weekends and gave excellent advise. He explained what was to be expected and was there every step of the way. He even met me at a doctor's appointment. I unfortunately had to use Joe's services on two occasions. He is someone you can rely on.

Superior Dedication & Service
Our beautiful daughter was in a fatal car crash in May of 2021, she had recently turned 18 and the accident she was involved in had a total of 4 vehicles, it became very clear very early that we would need representation, even before our daughter's funeral. I did not want an "ambulance chaser", we needed someone that would be by our side the entire way. I got to work looking through the Florida Bar list of Board Certified Lawyers and contacted Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith. Mr. Landy contacted me the very next day and that is where Mr. Landy took the wheel for us. He and his paralegal Jessica were compassionate, professional, prompt, and extremely thorough throughout the entire process. They communicated every step of the way. He won the case for us! Our daughter's legacy will be able to live on due to his knowledge and willingness to get justice for our daughter. We can't thank them enough! It was a pleasure to work with LLL&S. We HIGHLY recommend Mr. Joe Landy. Eddie & Paula

Excellent
Joe Landy assisted me in a slip and fall case. Joe and his entire staff were very professional in representing me and obtained a favorable resolution. Any time I had questions, Joe's staff, as well as himself, were always available to answer questions and assure me that it would all be resolved.

Wrongful Death Law Suit
From my initial contact with Mr. Landy and his law firm, I felt sure I would have the best legal representation available. He went "above and beyond" and proved to be an amazing champion for me with my "wrongful death" legal case. I never felt like a "case", but rather a real person with a real issue that could be resolved only with the most expertise legal counsel. In the end, Mr. Landy's diligence and hard work won the case and exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this expert Law Firm. Lindy

Closure
Joe did a great job representing me in accidental death case for my father. He made me feel at ease with how he took me through the process and how he handled how he presented my father and who he was. Definitely someone you want to have in your corner and would highly recommend.

Honest, Compassionate and in the business to help people. Mr. Landy's priority is his client's health.
I am a criminal defense attorney. As an attorney myself, it is hard not to control my own case but each area of the law is a specialty and I am grateful that I relied on Mr. Landy. He was incredibly kind and patient. Throughout my case he was an advocate on my behalf and ensured that I was taking care of myself. It is hard when you work long hours to remember the importance of self-care. Mr. Landy did his part to take time out of his schedule to remind me to make appointments, check-in on where I was in my treatment, and provide me with detailed updates. I never waited more than 24 hours for a return phone call. In my experience as an attorney, I have met my fair share of personal injury attorney who are in the business for the wrong reasons. Mr. Landy is not one of those people. He truly wants what is best for the well-being of his client. It is not about the numbers; it is about your health. Mr. Landy prioritized my health and recovered maximum policy limits.

Awesome Man
After working with a much advertised and large law firm, I changed and gave my keys to Joe Landy of Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, PLLC. He is an awesome man and an awesome attorney. He fought for me on his own because in the midst of the case I lost my husband, not to mention my world and my sanity. He won my case without having to file a lawsuit and having to go to court. I would and DO recommend him to anyone.

Client
After my wife died at the hospital, I did not know where to turn. I did not know how I could possibly care for my sons, and I wanted to know what happened to my wife. Thankfully, an attorney I knew referred me to Joe Landy. He was able to prove that my wife died due to medical malpractice, and obtain a recovery that will take care of myself and my kids for the rest of our lives. I cannot say enough about Mr. Landy's legal skills and his kindness. He treated us like family. He is the best.

A Superb Lawyer
In June of 2017, my 92 year old mother was hit by a car in the parking lot of a church where she played bridge. The accident ultimately took her life. Even though I worked initially on the matter, I knew that this case was beyond my expertise and it was just too personal for me to be effective. The law firm of Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. Joe Landy took on the case personally. He never overpromised or underdelivered. Joe and his paralegal treated my two brothers and me with respect and always promptly responded to calls and emails. Being a lawyer, I may have over-scrutinized issues and perhaps tried to micromanage. But Joe always patiently answered every question I had. Over time, we developed a very warm and positive relationship. In fact, Joe was so honest and personable, I started calling him the "fourth Cooper brother," or "Brother Joe." Joe was particularly sensitive to the issues surrounding the special needs of one of my brothers. He went out of his way to effectively communicate with my brother and to address his special needs. Joe eventually settled the case and far exceeded my expectations in hammering out a very beneficial settlement. Consequently, I highly recommend the firm of Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, and Joe Landy in particular.

Experienced, Professional, and Caring
Attorney Joseph Landy represented me in my case where a driver ran a red light and crashed into my driver side door causing three bones to break in my hip. The other vehicle had four witnesses against myself, but Joe fought for me hard to win the case. He is very compassionate at what he does and works hard and diligently to have the best outcome. I highly recommend Joe and will not hesitate to hire him or his law-firm again.

Joe Landy
I cannot say enough about Joe Landy. I consulted with him and his law firm 2 days after my son Mitchell was killed in a wrongful death accident in Martin County Florida. Joe took command of the case immediately and got the process in high gear. His partner Gary Lesser was just as commanding as Joe. When a person like myself loses their son in such an unfair way, it is comforting to know that you have a legal team that is standing behind you from start to finish and beyond! Not only did both of them get the case in "high gear"...but they could see that i was "devastated " and directed me to the correct professionals i could talk to in private. I consider Joe, and Gary to be the most understanding and professional people i have ever had the privledge of meeting. Todd
