Meet Your Neighborhood Lawyer, Larry Lefkowitz
After graduating from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles CA in 1986, Larry Lefkowitz began his early career working as an associate attorney for two separate law firms. In 1991, with two small children at home, Larry chose to open his own practice, so he could be his own boss, and control the balance between career and fatherhood. Knowing that he needed to differentiate himself from other lawyers, Larry came up with a better way to do business. While other lawyers were charging by the hour Larry charged a fixed reasonable fee. While other lawyers required large amounts of money upfront, Larry asked for ½ the reasonable fee upfront for the work to be done, with the other half not due until completion of the work. While other lawyers used up their client’s retainers and required more and more money for the work still not completed, Larry continued working for his clients for the agreed upon amount, without monthly installment payments. While other lawyers billed in minimum increments of time at hundreds of dollars per hour, and billed for telephone time and letter writing and travel to and from court, Larry did none of that. If you ask a question about your case, Larry doesn’t charge you for it, but other lawyers do. While other lawyers may try to convince you that you can’t handle things on your own, Larry always explains the process to you in a way that you can understand, so that you decide whether you need him or not. Larry won’t ever take your money for something you find out afterwards you didn’t have to pay him for. This approach to doing business is what sets Larry The Lawyer apart!
Flat Rate Fees+ Better Relationships =No Surprises
Enhancing relationships with clients is what Larry Lefkowitz is all about. His clients choose the legal services they need, rather than being told what they need by a lawyer with a financial stake. Clients know exactly how much they will pay ahead of time. Larry uses an a-la-carte menu for most of the services in his practice. Specialty legal services can be quoted prior to commencement of the work.
In 2004, Larry became a trained mediator and opened the Delaware Valley Dispute Resolution Center, where he helps people resolve all types of disputes. The Law Firm of Larry Lefkowitz has been providing high quality legal services since opening in 1991.
