In one, brief sentence: a resounding YES - hire this attorney and his associated firm! They will not steer you wrong.
Words do not express the depth of gratitude I hold for Mr. Lawrence, his associate Ms. Peck, and the staff of Lawence & Peck. I was arrested in the fall of last year and found my life, my world, completely shattered. This is my first encounter with the criminal-law system, therefore, I knew nothing. My initial phone call was met with calm, understanding, caring and a clear "art of listening". The staff took the time to hear my situation and then began to form a plan of action. I will not go into detail of the various meetings, however, what IS important to say is that as the details of my case came to light, there were more questions asked, more fact finding, more fact checking toward the task at hand: how to position me for the best possible outcome for my given situation. I was provided with cost and fee expectations depending on the direction my case might take. What stands out for me is the depth of research and attention to detail. Facts and comments I made during our meetings were revisited in follow up meetings to varify accuracy; building a time-line of events. I was convicted of a criminal act. This fact will stay with me the rest of my life. Mr. Lawrence, Ms. Peck and their staff have been forthright and honest with the severity of my circumstance, yet, they have been kind and empathetic to how I ended up in such a circumstance. They have not painted a rosey picture or sheltered me from hard truths. Mr. Lawrence's ability to compile facts and data into a time-line helped me immensely to understand my circumstances separate from opinion and my rather raw emotions. Constantly explaining the possible directions my case could go and what those outcomes could entail. I have been informed, educated and guided all along the way so that when the time came for me to make decisions toward my case, that only I could make, I felt armed and ready to do so. Today I have hope. Hope that I can live with this chapter of my life and rebuild something new that I can be proud of. To find oneself facing a criminal sentence is no easy road to walk. Mr. Lawrence showed me dedication, a fierceness, toward the best possible outcome on my behalf. If you've read this far - thank you. With deep gratitiude and the highest respect, I recommend my attorney, Mr. David Michael Lawrence.

Mr. Lawrence did an outstanding job representing me in a high profile criminal case. He has a great wealth of knowledge in criminal law and his attention to details and facts of a case are exceptional. Mr. Lawrence put a lot of time and effort into my criminal defense. He was always candid and he took the time to insure I understood the court process as well as looking out for my best interests. I highly recommend his serves as a criminal defense attorney.

I had a complicated criminal case brought against me by the government. He worked very hard with research and diligence, missing no gaps. The case was dismissed at a very early stage, thanks to his detailed work. He was always available to answer questions and console me. He allow a extremely reasonable compensation plan. I'm so happy the first attorney could not take my case and referred me to Michael. He is an extremely nice and warm person who was not only interested in my case, but interested in me as a person.
