also known as Larry Strauss
I am an AV Preeminent-rated attorney and former journalist whose practice focuses on complex commercial and civil litigation, including business disputes, real estate and employment law matters.
In joining the Law Offices of Gary, Williams, Parenti, Watson & Gary, PLLC, my practice offerings have expanded to include personal injury, medical malpractice, tobacco litigation and nursing home abuses.
I have litigated a variety of cases in both state and federal courts, conducted depositions, resolved matters in mediation, and advocated for clients before administrative agencies. I have also served as in-house litigation counsel for a corporation, as well as in state government.
An attorney for more than 12 years and a Florida native, I worked as a journalist at newspapers throughout Florida and in Washington, D.C., for nearly a decade prior to beginning my legal career.
I obtained my law degree from Penn State, and my journalism degree from the University of Florida.
