Lawrence Manassa is a highly skilled litigator with 29 years of trial experience. He has a proven record of success through hundreds of trials. Still, Lawrence understands that litigation is not always in his client’s best interest, and is also proficient at collaborative law and mediation. Lawrence is a former Assistant State’s Attorney in Cook County and is on a very select list of Court approved Child Representative in both Cook and McHenry County. As a divorced father, he understands the trauma of divorce first hand and strives to help prepare his divorcing clients for life after their divorce. Lawrence is also committed to his clients and his community. He earned his B.S. from the University of Illinois before attending DePaul University College of Law, where he earned his J.D.
After reviewing my case, I was referred to Larry by another attorney who is well known in the area. My situation was desperate having young children involved in a very messy divorce. Larry took the time to understand the entire landscape of what had happened to me and my children. He worked tirelessly to appeal and win reversal of the court decision. He is a person who can be trusted to always act responsibly and in the best interest of his clients and their children. I also feel he is not only an excellent lawyer but a wonderful person as well. If you are seeking sound legal advise or effective representation, I highly recommend Larry Manassa.

I have dealt with a several Law Firms in business and some personal and your firm is fantastic. Larry Manassa's knowledge of the law is incredible. He also has a bit of "pit bull" in him. I wouldn't want to go against him in court! I won't hesitate to refer your firm in the future and in fact already have.
