i was going thru my divorce & child custody case over 10 years ago, at first I went with a Filipina lawyer as she was a referral her name was Mary Gubatina, and she did not handle my case in the best way possible, she was late to our court hearings and just did not do a good job at all. My abusive, drug addicted ex husband was granted visitation of our minor children and at the end of the case the judge was pretty much on his side. I was so upset, outraged at the outcome and was so mad about how much money I spent I lost all my faith in lawyers. I vowed to do everything In Pro Per going forward. About a year later my eldest son had an opportunity to play basketball in Los Angeles, and although my ex agreed to let him move, he would often hold it over my head saying that if our son refused to visit with him that he would go to the judge and tell them he did not give permission for him to move out of the county, my eldest son and his father had a very rough relationship. My son witnessed all his abuse towards me and towards himself and his little brother, he did not want to see his dad and refused to spend his weekends with him even though they were court ordered so I decided to take him to court for relocation rights as i was also planning to move to SoCal as well. I was referred to Mr, LaRose from a friend who wasn't even Mr. Larose's client but her ex husband was and he won their case, she referred me to him because she said he was THAT good! I couldn't resist under those circumstances, so I called Mr. LaRose and after our first meeting he reassured me that what I was doing for my children was the right thing and I retained him on the spot. Mr. LaRose not only got the judge to grant our relocation rights but he also got the judge to hear my son out and did not force him to visit with his father, resulting in my ex's visitation rights to our oldest son revoked. it was the best outcome ever and Mr. LaRose really did restore my faith in the judicial system and in lawyers. I am a single mother of 3 boys and i had to work hard and save money in order to retain him but it was completely worth it. and now here i am 12 years later i am in need of a lawyer and i am not hesitating on who i should call. I will be calling Mr. LaRose.

I came to Mr. Larose's office almost three years ago from a very bad and very long marriage. My ex was emotionally abusive, manipulative, extremely controlling, and I had been married to him for 31 years. I had no self-confidence or self-worth and was at the end of my rope. When I talked to Mr. Larose, for the first time, in such a long time, I felt I was worth something; I was worth fighting for because he listened to me - really listened, and took notes. He and his team were completely on my side. I felt empowered because I learned I had rights I didn't even know I had. He was truthful and did not sugar-coat my situation. He made me work gathering files and information he would need. He respected my wishes completely and he and his team kept me informed throughout. My ex and his lawyer dragged the settlement on for a long time and it has only just finished. Mr. Larose got a settlement for me that far exceeded my expectations. Through the three-year ordeal, Mr. Larose made sure I understood everything, followed every avenue of defense, kept me informed, protected me in the settlement agreement and personally corresponded with me or called even though I moved out of state. He is thorough, protective of his client, extremely knowledgeable, exacting, and very honest. I will miss his frequent emails. Mr. Larose and his team have my highest recommendation. They made a difference in my life.

I have used Mr. Larose and his team on my case. He is aggressive, smart, does not back down, and sensitive. Mr. Larose, and his team including attorney Chelsea Jagar, were worth every dollar paid for their expertise and handling of my case . He listened to me and my concerns and gave me very good advise on how to proceed. They say the best settlements are done when your attorney is willing to take your case all the way to trial, and my attorneys resolved my case as I had hoped. Since the settlement I have often contacted Mr. Larose for additional advice. Its great to know he is always there if I need him. I have also recommended him to a very good friend of mine and he also worked on his case with success. If you are looking for a Divorce attorney, Mr. Larose is the one for you.
