Excellent Attorney, Grit + Integrity
Larry is not only a highly skilled and knowledgeable attorney, but he truly cares about his clients. You have the added bonus of a very efficient office staff who follow up on emails and questions in a timely manner, always respectful and willing to assist. Larry was not my first attorney, but he certainly will be the last. Should I need legal representation in the future, I will contact Larry again with confidence that he is the best person for the job.

Experienced and Honest
After reviewing my case, I was referred to Larry by another attorney who is well known in the area. My situation was desperate having young children involved in a very messy divorce. Larry took the time to understand the entire landscape of what had happened to me and my children. He worked tirelessly to appeal and win reversal of the court decision. He is a person who can be trusted to always act responsibly and in the best interest of his clients and their children. I also feel he is not only an excellent lawyer but a wonderful person as well. If you are seeking sound legal advise or effective representation, I highly recommend Larry Manassa.

I was referrend to Manassa by another attorney to handle my divorce. Excellent representation. He was able to make sure that I not only got a fair deal, but he made sure that I understood everything that was going on during the 2 years it took to finalize everything. If you need a divorce attorney, Manassa is who you need in your corner!
