Auto Accident
After my auto Accident, I was so nervous because I didn’t know what to expect especially when it comes to lawyers, fees, etc. I was referred to Attorney Lavis and to be honest, it was the best decision I made. He is patient, understanding, and truly helped me. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is involved in auto accidents or any other problem (his field) that you may need a attorney to help out with.

Excellent work!
Attorney Charles Lavis was absolutely amazing!! My daughter and I were involved in a car accident, where we were rear-ended. A friend referred him to us and from day one until the end of my case, he was very professional, caring and prompt. He was literally a phone call or email away. I truly appreciate his help and trust his judgment. He worked hard on my case and I can't thank him enough. He treats his clients with the utmost respect. I will recommend him to anyone who needs a very good lawyer. Thanks, Charles for all that you've done, You're the best!

A+ attorney
Mr. Lavis handles all his clients with respect and in a professional manner. He is straight forward, honest, and fair. Unlike some attorneys he personally returns all emails and phone calls. He explains everything in a manner that you will understand. His office staff is very kind and professional. Most of all he is the best. That's why I always recommend him.
