Hardworking Lawyer
Louis and I both put hard work into my case, and while much of the work was not needed, I still think he deserves a good review. Louis was easy to communicate with when it came down to the wire and helped set a lot of my anxieties at ease. No one likes dealing with the court system, but if you have to make sure you have someone like Louis by your side.

Louis grossman is a top attorney!!
Louis has been my Lawyer since 2012 when I first hired him for our first custody case. Later after being married to my husband, Louis represented us through 2 more custody battles, and He has won each and every one of them for us. Louis is a Brilliant, effective, and skilled Lawyer! He has gone out of his way for us everytime we have contacted him. From Late night phone calls, to early morning e mails and everywhere in between, Louis has always gotten back to us in a timely manner. Not only has he represented us for all of our family court, he has also represented us for tenant landlord laws, and small claims court, in which we have WON all of. I highly recoment Louis as an attorney, to anyone either looking for one, or anyone who has been failed by a lawyer. He is very passionate about his Career, employees, and his clients. He and his staff are personable, and eager to help. While Louis is a very nice guy, he is also effective, analytical, and accomplished in the court room!!!

The best lawyer ever
I got into trouble back in 2016 the courts at that time appointed me a lawyer, Louis Grossman! From the start Louis did a great job to make sure I not only understood the fancy legal words everyone was saying in court room, he also encouraged me to keep up the good work, I ended up getting both my children back in 2017. When my case ended in 2018 Louis told me never to hesitate to call him for help with ANYTHING! In December of 2019 I had to call him up for help and advise... without asking, Louis took my case, he took time out of his personal life to help me in a serious time of need. He showed up for court and smashed it. I've called him a couple times for his advice and he has NEVER turned me away! If I need any legal help he would be the one I call. Hes a bad ass!
