Collection on real estate matter
Larry is very helpful with common sense advise. He assisted us by evaluating the options available and guiding us to the path with the best likely outcome. Larry can be aggressive, as needed at times, but will temper his approach to best serve the outcome for the client.

| Consulted Attorney
Provided actual advice
Lawrence S. Glosser was the only attorney that provided actually legal advice instead of a quote for how much the initial consult would cost. That advice was sufficient for me to resolve the issue on my own.

Expert, Strategic, Straightforward, Cool Under Pressure
Larry is the best! His knowledge, experience and style helped me get through a sticky and unpleasant real estate legal matter. With a compassionate heart, he helped me put each stressful step in perspective, setting realistic and reasonable expectations. We operated as a team, and I was very pleased how he represented me. A technical detail Larry highlighted in my case resulted in closure sooner rather than later. I found Larry through his registration with the state of Washington, and one of the things that impressed me was that he does volunteer work and gives back to the community, applying his legal expertise. I am ever so grateful for Larry’s services, and he is my first choice for any future real estate legal needs, and I highly recommend him to others.

Response from Lawrence Glosser July 20, 2021
I was pleased with the outcome and your attention and understanding of the case subtleties. I found it easy to communicate with you, and your patience in a somewhat difficult case.

You cannot go wrong if you hire Mr. Lawrence Glosser.
This man has got to be the most kind Lawyer I have ever spoke with. He wasn't intimidating or belittling at all. He was kind every step of the way. He went above and beyond what we asked of him. We would definitely use him again and again. You can't go wrong with Lawrence Glosser. Thank you Mr. Glosser for helping us.

Super responsive, very easy to work with.
Larry was incredibly responsive from my first phone call. We sold our home without an agent, and he managed the buy/sell agreement, drafted a promissory note, counseled on default contingencies, and provided a wealth of information relevant to selling a home yourself.

Hands down one of the best out there
Larry was very responsive to our matter and took care of it in less than 24 hours. If you are looking for a lawyer in his field, he is the man for the job. Can not say enough about how happy we are with his service.

This IS the lawyer you want to work with
Lawrence worked with us on a home purchase transaction that was executed without a real estate agent because the seller published it as a “sell by owner”. His work on contract, addendums and legal advice was professional, prompt and resulted being of excellent value. He made the process easy and clear and facilitated a smooth transaction. I strongly recommend his services.

Wonderful, responsive lawyer -- expert in real estate
Lawrence has assisted me with several legal matters over the past few years, related to a real-estate purchase and landlord-tenant resolution issues. His knowledge base is very deep and he understands the complexities and nuances of many issues. Larry was very prompt with responding to my questions, answered many questions I had, and always kept me informed about the cases. He responded to my inquiries, and reached out to me, as well, with updates. I found him very comfortable and easy to work with, yet incredibly professional at the same time. I would definitely recommend him and plan on working with him again in the future.

Client Review
Larry is smart, efficient, caring, and has a sense of humor. What more can you ask for when choosing an attorney?
Posted by Shah | January 9, 2014
Wise and affordable
While Mr. Glosser's hourly rate might seem high to some people, he didn't have any hidden costs. He didn't charge me for too many hours. Furthermore, sometimes he didn't charge anything for some of the time he put in for me. I was pleased with the advice Mr. Glosser provided me and what he accomplished for me. For me, this was a refreshing experience with a lawyer.

Resolved my problem
Mr. Glosser helped me with my landlord tenant problem and issues with a lease situation. He was good at explaining what was going on, and worked out a very good result in a short time. He knows a lot about real estate and was very professional. I hope I don't need a lawyer again, but if I do I will call him for sure.
