"Got Myself On The Right Path"

Dear Mr. Margolis,

I really appreciate everything you did when I thought immigration was coming for me. I was pretty sad. The next morning, the guard informed me that immigration canceled my detainer.  I was so excited at that point, knowing that I be getting out.

I got myself on the right path by going back to school to get my diploma, get a job, and staying out of trouble.

Thank you again!

"A Stand Up Guy"

Larry Margolis is a tough minded, hard working Ann Arbor Attorney who will go to bat for you and win. Not only that, but he is a stand up guy with a real human side, who treats his clients like their problem is the most important problem he has. I would recommend him to anyone who needed his expert legal advice.

"Thanks to Laurence, I have the opportunity to be a legal citizen in the US"

What Laurence did for me? I was charged fleeing from an officer, reckless driving, and driving without a state license. I pled no content to all my charges, then I got arrested for immigration for having a felony on my record. I had to hire an immigration attorney, and he recommended that I have the felony removed from my record. He referred me to hire Laurence Harry Margolis, who took on my case no questions asked. He was able to drop my plea, and once he took it to trial he was able to drop my felony charge. So there’s no doubt that Laurence is one of the best attorneys out there. So if anyone is in need of an attorney, don’t think twice about it twice and hire him. Thanks to him I’m with my family, and have the chance to get my life together. I’m super thankful for Laurence, he did an amazing job.

"You played such a critical role in helping me stay on the right course."

Hi Larry,

Three years ago you helped me get a deferred sentencing agreement on a misdemeanor-level MDOP charge.

Over the last month, I applied for and secured an offer for, if not my dream job, then at least a job that is a rung on the ladder I want to be on. I am doubling my salary and getting in with a very well-respected company that does innovative work. My background check just came back today and there is nothing on it, it’s smooth sailing ahead.

Thank you so much for the work you did in getting me that outcome. This could have been the kind of thing that followed me around, forced difficult conversations, and otherwise complicated my ability to capitalize on opportunities like this. You played such a critical role in helping me stay on the right course and it has led me to one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I’ll never take it for granted and continue to live in a way that proves giving me a chance was the right call. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Max G.
