"We had a family law issue, and never had a family law attorney. We were anxious and worried, not only because of the issues that faced us, but because we didn't know who we could trust. Lawrence came highly recommended to us, and he eased our anxiety right away. He gave us realistic expectations, and fought hard to surpass them ( which he did ). He was always honest with us, and kept us informed every step of the way. He is not only highly accomplished, but a man of integrity. We would highly recommend him for your family law needs. "

"My husband and I chose the collaborative process in hopes of keeping the financial and emotional costs of our divorce to a minimum. This office exceeded my expectations at all times. They explained the process in detail and really listened to my goals. They never lost sight of those goals at any time during the collaborative process, and each of them was realized. Furthermore, this firm's delicate handling of my case kept my co-parenting relationship with my now ex-husband fully intact, and that is priceless. I will always be grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and for their emotional support through this process. It's so rare to see attorneys with extraordinary ability and genuine compassion. I highly recommend them."

"Lawrence represented me in my petition to modify custody of my 11 year old son, who had been living with his mother for his entire life. With his help, after trial, I was awarded custody of my son. I am pleased to report he is thriving. I will always be grateful."
"I went to see Lawrence Manassa after a recommendation by two other divorce attorneys and after having hired two prior law firms. I needed quality representation after experiencing a terrible court decision which awarded custody of 4 minor children to my ex-wife after 3 years of them living full time with me and flourishing. Larry's team got to work on a detailed appeal of the court decision which was published and filed. The appeal was overwhelmingly successful and the original decision was reversed. After careful planning and legal expertise, the new judge (Chief Judge of the Circuit) granted a temporary reversal of the custody decision and a set new trial. Larry represented me in the new trial and ultimately legal and residential custody was finally awarded back to me. I'm happy to report the kids are doing GREAT and I owe so much to Larry and his team. Larry is an exceptionally skillful attorney who also has a big heart. He is without a doubt one of the most controlled people in a courtroom when confronted with the lunacy and emotional issues divorce brings. You can rest assured that Mr. Manassa will come prepared every time and he brings a great deal of legal skill and experience to bear. You can trust him to represent your best interest and explain the issues to you in whatever level of detail you require. I will continue to recommend Larry to friends for various legal issues as he's performed for them as well. Call him with your legal issues and you'll know exactly where you stand and what your options are."
