Did good !
This is my first time ever seeking help from a lawyer and the experience was great. He keeps you in the loop, and explains things so you can understand. Always gets back to you, in a timely manner, if you happen to call when he is busy. Over all great experience. He is a nice guy and very respectable. I hope he knows I'm grateful for all the time and effort he put into my case.

Awesome Lawyer
Staff was friendly, I couldn't have found a more professional group to represent me in regards to my auto accident. I was extremely satisfied with the outcome results. If ever I need legal assistance again I would return to this group. Most notably, I was extremely nervous about the process and Mr. Knapp and his staff made the situation as bearable as it could be.

Trustworthy and Passionate Advocate!
In April of 2014 a vehicle traveling over 50mph rear ended my vehicle at a stop sign. Being the skeptical pessimist that I am, and knowing the cut-and-dry nature of the case, I was hesitant to seek counsel, despite the pressure from already unsettled, pregnant wife to do so (she's usually right!). However, after the first phone call to the other party's suspiciously inquisitive insurance company, and realizing the full extent of my injuries, as well as the potential for these injuries to worsen or reoccur, I decided to contact Larry and at least pick his brain for general guidance or to find a starting point in dealing with any sort of settlement from the insurance company. Boy, am I glad I did! During mine and my wife's first meeting with Larry, he not only made us feel at ease, but was so clear and specific about what would be expected from me, my wife, himself and everyone else involved in settling my case. He educated us on potential issues (essentially warning us of the self-benefiting tactics employed by insurance companies and healthcare providers) and explained his role and the importance of legal knowledge during these encounters (By the way, all of which he warned did in fact happen and we felt fortunate to have him at our side.). Larry felt like a friend throughout the entire process and I could tell that he was truly passionate about doing what was RIGHT and guiding my case to an end result that was nothing shy of deserved. He always focused on doing what was best for me, and conducted himself, as well as his business, with full integrity regarding all parties involved. Larry was always available within a reasonable time to answer questions, update me and my wife on progress, or to simply listen to our concerns or calm our nerves. He kept us focused, and was always receptive to ideas, questions and concerns we had throughout the long process, and was honest with his thoughts, opinions and counsel. Larry's office staff was consistently professional and inviting to both me and my wife. The staff was always available for anything that did not require Larry's expertise, and was prompt in relaying messages that did require such knowledge, to ensure a quick response from Larry. I never felt "out of the loop," or side-barred, while working with Larry or his team. I was very satisfied with the final settlement, and just as pleased with Larry's take. Both my wife and I agree that the portion of the settlement Larry received was less than what was deserved. After notifying us of the final settlement amount, Larry, unbeknownst to us, continued his efforts and achieved a settlement that was actually significantly more than the amount we were initially told. My wife and I highly recommend Larry Knapp to anyone needing the help we did, or the help we didn't realize we needed! Larry is honest, proficient, passionate and professional. I'm sure it sounds cheesy but Larry is a lawyer who hasn't lost sight of why he became a lawyer; honest justice. Every once in a while you FINALLY find the perfect individual that provides a professional service with the expertise you need and of the quality you expect; Larry is that guy in the legal field. Now, anyone know a good mechanic?? :)

Thanks for your help!
In 2014, I was involved in an accident at work which involved Worker’s Comp. After being released to go back to work I received a time sensitive document that me nor my family understood. My Worker’s Comp liaison nor my employer make themselves available to explain what the documents meant nor what I needed to do to protect me and my family. Searching the internet I found Lawrence Knapp Injury Attorney. Lawrence (Larry) made himself available, listened to my story and my concerns with the paperwork. Although he doesn’t handle Worker’s Comp claims he calmed me down, was able to provide information on the documentation and found a reputable attorney to take my case. In today’s environment I don’t think this kind of service happens with most businesses. Thanks Larry Knapp and your awesome staff.

A great outcome
Larry and his staff were excellent in helping me with my case. They were very clear on what was required of me to help them with my case. Larry kept me updated on a regular basis and called me when he needed any information. I will definitely use Larry and his staff again and recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney in his field.
