  • Larry has represented me on numerous occasions, including my divorce that he won. I cannot say enough great things about the guy - absolutely genuine, highly professional, and cares about his clients. I was able to call him at any point of the day and get my answers and/or concerns met immediately. A divorce is not an easy thing to endeavor, yet Attorney Baker did a marvelous job in helping me get through it.

  • THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was going through a bad divorce and child custody case and nothing was going in my favor. Scared to lose custody of my son, thankfully I transferred my case to Mr. Baker. Everything changed once he started representing me and I am forever grateful for all the good care and utmost professionalism he consistently displayed. During such a stressful event in my life it was great to have Mr. Baker on my side. I can never repay him for helping me successfully move on with my life.

  • A great guy... An AMAZING ATTORNEY!!! I have used Lawrence several times, he has handled my divorce and my Family Court Proceedings throughout a 10 year span. He is in constant contact with me in regards to my case, he doesn't make me feel uncomfortable, nor does he use large language that's confusing. I walk out of his office with knowledge and confidence in my attorney. He is a straight shooter!!

  • I appreciate all of Larry's hard work and support during this difficult time. It helped me to not feel so all alone. I believe that everything happens for a reason, even if I do not always know what that reason is right away. Hopefully, in time, I will come to understand. As I move forward from this life challenge, I hope to find peace and healing. Thank you again.
