Larry represented me against my former employer - a popular and well resourced tech company in the Bay Area - to negotiate an improved severance agreement. A number of other attorneys to whom I had spoken before Larry were less than optimistic about my chances for success, but Larry agreed to take my case and persevered through some relatively involved negotiations and was able to obtain a severance package that allowed me to realize a significantly larger portion of my compensation than I was initially offered!
He was calm, professional, and reassuring throughout, explaining the process clearly along the way, and scheduled time to talk with me in advance of deadlines when decisions had to be made so I would have time to think and ask any additional questions, if I had them, through each of the stages of that negotiation.
I was particularly impressed by his ability to forge a good working relationship with the company's representatives and make steady progress despite the friction between myself and ex-employer, and tension in the situation due to upcoming deadlines for both sides.
Without his assistance, my family and I would have lost the majority of the compensation I had otherwise been due to receive, and he turned a horrifying situation into something that was much more fair, and much better than I'd expected, which was a huge weight off my shoulders!

Please do not hesitate to enlist the services of Laurence Masson. Mr. Masson represented me in an employment matter against a major corporation. I was kept very well informed and also encouraged to be proactive where appropriate. Mr. Masson fully utilized all resources to and including travel to meet with witnesses on my behalf. I would not hesistate to contact Larry if I required legal services in the future.
