Quality advice that won the case with just a letter
I met with Mr. Landry to discuss a severance agreement I was unhappy with. He told me I had two ways to approach the matter: Play hardball or use the soft approach. He suggested the soft approach first -- a politely worded letter stating my position. He told what to say, how to say it and why. I did as he suggested and across two back-and-forth emails with the legal counsel from my former company, I received everything I wanted, which included a dramatic (4x larger) increase in severance pay. Very glad I consulted with Mr. Landry.

Excellent Lawyer
Robert Landry III is the most concerned lawyer I have met. He provided sound guidance and went well above and beyond what I expected he would do. He left every phone call with "if you have any additional trouble call me right away". He was always prompt in returning phone calls and I never felt rushed. I always felt that I had his undivided attention. The outcome to my case came much quicker than I expected and were much better than I could have imagined. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Landry to family and friends!

Excellent Lawyer
I have been very impressed with Mr. Robert Landry's professional demeanor, accessibility (very prompt with return calls; answered right away) and sound legal advice. Because of Mr. Landry's approach to my legal problem at my job I was able to reach closure with my employer with a better outcome than I ever imagined. Mr Landry went above and beyond what I expected for consultation/advisement and was very realistic yet positive in preparing me for possible outcomes. I pray I don't need a lawyer in the future but if I do I WILL be calling Mr. Landry. Thank you so much and God bless you Mr. Landry!!

Excellent Lawyer
Rob represented me in an employment matter in federal court. His work was excellent, he went over and beyond his duty, and he responded to my questions and concerns in a timely manner. Also he always very professional, honest and courteous. Rob always made sure I understood what was going on, the process, and what was going to be taking place next in my case. He fought hard for me and I know he was a blessing sent by God to represent me in my case and we had a great outcome. I hig hly recommend Rob for legal services.
