  • Lawrence S. Katz

    I endorse this lawyer. Gary Strauss entered the legal profession with a wealth of experience - as a musician and songwriter, teacher in the inner city, and scholar who finished at the top of his law school class while raising a family. Poised for success, he has more than fulfilled the expectations of those of us who knew him well. Whether, he is drafting legal documents, writing briefs or appearing in court, he maintains the same dedication to others and standard of excellence he has shown throughout his life.
