Professional and Considerate: Roberts Exceeds Excellence
If you should ever find yourself in need of an attorney, and you want someone who is at the top of his profession, Larry Roberts is in a league of his own. He provides extraordinary representation to his clients with his legal knowledge and skill. During my experience I felt most impressed with his promptness in responding and keeping me informed about the status of my case. Larry's courteous and confident manner is always reassuring whether in or out of the courtroom. As a client, you can feel certain about the decisions you make because Larry will present all the information to you and advise you to make the right decision which you know is in your best interest. He is a formidable adversary, yet enjoys the respect and admiration of his peers because of his courteous, considerate and professional manner. You can confidently leave all your concerns of your legal matters with him and rest assured you have the very best support and representation. Most of all, Larry will always be available to you when you need him; you may feel like you are his most important client.....and that is a unique experience.

Medical Malpractice
I could honestly not say enough about this man. He has helped me and my husband so much. We absolutely had not one answer to the questions we had but when we came to Larry he dove in head first and got our answers. This man would go to the ends of the earth for his clients. I have never seen anybody work so hard for someone. Most lawyers today only want money, well Larry wants to help you get everything that you deserve. If you hire him I promise you he will not let you down. you have my word on that. I thank God in heaven for sending us Larry to get our answers.

My Workers Comp Case/SSI-Disability
I was a Truck Driver in a bad accident that after a thorough investigation by the DOT was deemed to be mechanical error and not my fault. I incured 3 bad injuries in the accident, 2 required surgeries and all 3 together ended my career. Larry was recommende to me by one of his previous clients. Throughout the entire medical and legal process Larry always kept me informed and he was always encouraging. The bottom line is that he truly cares and deals with each client individually and he always did what he said he was going to do. It is because of his efforts that I not only received a $ 275,000(Workers Comp) settlement but he also got my disability settled in my favor just 6 months after my Workers comp settlement. I would recommend him to anybody seeking legal council for any reason.

Gets results
Mr. Roberts and staff are very professional and courteous. My former attorney accomplished very little. Mr. Roberts accomplished, in 1 year, what my former attorney didn't in 3. I highly recommend the Larry V. Roberts firm.

Advice helped me recover $7000!!!
I had a issue with a builder not rendering services after receiving money. I asked Larry his advice on how to get my money back. The builder had become unresponsive to phone calls, letters, and texts. Larry sought to understand my problem, showed great concern, and helped provide direction. His advice allowed me to get the money back in a timely manner and without much problem. Larry is professional, kind, caring, and attentive to the problem. He was a good listener and diligent to the issue. I highly recommend Larry. I have dealt with other lawyers before but none as personable as Larry and actually enjoyable to deal with. Thank you Larry!

Social Security
I hired Larry and his firm to handle my claim against the social security administration in Sept 2013 and had a positive decision in Dec 2013. I would recommend Larry Roberts and his team in a heart beat for any legal issue you may come across. I have not received any payment for this comment. Larry and his team took care of me with professionalism and care from start to finish. I would and have recommended him and his team to friends and family.

Extremely Caring Professional
Larry represented me when I was involved in a 3 sided story. He believed in my case and cared greatly that justice would be served in my favor. Larry is extremely thorough in finding every bit of info he could possibly use to best serve his clients. He allowed me to make all the decisions, explaining clearly in a language I could understand, what the outcome of each decision I made may be. He made it a very big point to keep me out of any situations where I may have felt vulnerable and uncomfortable. Working with Larry on my particular case grew a wonderful friendship and gave me as much closure possible to a situation in my life that i will never be able to completely forget. Thanks to his expertise and care we won my case and felt justice was served whereas without him I would still be wondering today if it ever would be.

Very Satisfied
This makes the second time Larry has helped me on a workers comp case. 1st time was 8yrs ago, and that was a motor vehicle and workers comp case he helped me win both cases , he was GREAT! Now 8 yrs later he is helping me again and he has come through for me. We had to take workers comp to court to get my surgery approved and we won thanks to Larry!! When another attorneys office would not even try. I do not know why I did not call him to begin with he has always been there for me he really cares for his clients and will go the extra mile for them.

auto accident claim
Very down to earth person. I was treated with kindness and respect. I left feeling like I was cared about more as a person than just a dollar sign.

Wisdom, Experience, Compassion; Superior Representation
I had been involved in an on going legal situation following a work related injury. Because of unforeseen circumstances, I was left without legal representation. Devastated, I didn't have the emotional strength left, nor the legal insight to continue on my own. It was at this time, that Mr. Roberts was highly recommended to me. My research into his practice and reputation revealed a greatly respected attorney, and though still hesitant, I called and arranged a consultation. Upon meeting Mr. Roberts I sensed a humble man, in possession of both wisdom and compassion, and I can now personally attest to the very strong benefit and defense that his experience, skill and keen intelligence provides. Mr Roberts' manner toward me was professional, yet extremely kind and patient, as he explained confusing legal terms and the litigation process. When I felt overwhelmed and anxious, Mr Roberts was always calm, reassuring and confident. He was also tenacious and resolute in his determination to win the best possible outcome for my situation. His approach was well balanced as he navigated the most appropriate legal course of action, while also respecting my feelings and concerns. Mr Roberts is a seeker of justice for those wronged and hurt, and is gifted with a rare wisdom, born of his own strong faith. I will always be so grateful for his willingness to assist me during such a stressful, confusing time in my life. He has my highest recommendation.
