Testimonials

"Fantastic Lawyer"

Mr. Margolis has done a great job representing and defending our family member during deportation proceedings. Our prior attorney has mishandled the case due to lack of knowledge of immigration vs criminal law. Larry was able to get the charges greatly reduced based on improper legal counsel grounds. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking legal help for immigration. Thank you!

"Awesome Lawyer"

Larry is a spectacular lawyer! He is thorough, professional, upfront, and very knowledgeable. I recommend Larry to all my family and friends!!! He has helped me with simple things as well as complex matters. I can’t say enough good things about how Larry handles his practice and his clients!

"A true life-saver"

Larry was, for lack of a better word, a godsend to me and my family when we required his services for a criminal defense case. Throughout the entire process, Larry worked very thoroughly and effectively to ensure that I was able to achieve the outcome I desired. Larry’s extensive knowledge of the law, tact, comforting personality and excellent sense of judgment were critical in his achieving the positive outcome.

At all points of the case, Larry always had a strong grasp on its direction – with this information and his experience in past cases, he was able to contact the right people at the right place at the right time. The specific steps that Larry took were very well thought out and ultimately helped me achieve the outcome I needed.

Larry and his staff were, at all points, completely honest about the status of my case. During my regular phone calls with him, Larry clearly outlined the possible outcomes of the case at each step and always kept me informed as to what I could expect and when. My family and I both feel that this consistent communication helped us trust him even more and, more importantly, kept us relatively calm during this troubling process.

I would highly recommend Larry as an attorney. Not only was he able to win my case, he did it while ensuring that I remained relaxed throughout the entire process. Thank you again, Larry!

"Thank you!"

If you want a lawyer that you can trust, laugh and feel comprehended you have it here!!!! Larry is the best!!! I went to him with a serious issue that I thought it was way too hard to win; nonetheless, he rocked in court! All I needed to do was tell him my side of the story detail by detail, and he did his magic. He is friendly and in court he is a whole different person, he puts an awesome suit to defend his clients! I just don’t have more words to describe his spectacular work! He is definitely by far one of the best lawyers I have gone to! I highly recommend him.

"The Margolis Law Firm was extremely helpful in getting charges dropped against my husband"

My husband was arrested because of an unfortunate situation that did not warrant the seriousness of the charges he was facing. I hired Laurence Margolis, for a very reasonable fee, to help our family in this very scary time in our lives. Within two weeks, “Larry” had arranged for the charges to be dropped by the prosecution. I cannot thank Mr. Margolis and his office enough for the assistance they provided my husband. I would definitely recommend his office to friends and family, or anyone who needs a lawyer!
