    TESTIMONIALS

    • “Larry’s knowledge of the bankruptcy code is as good as I’ve seen in my years working with Chapter 11 cases and financially distressed companies. He also brings a practical side in resolving issues with various creditor groups. This ability to address various groups the strong and weak points in a non-confrontational manner avoids undue delay and costly litigation in many cases. However, when confrontation is unavoidable, Larry is quite the fine trial lawyer as well.”
