For the 15th consecutive year, Metro DC Personal Injury Lawyer Larry Lapidus has been awarded a listing as “Best Lawyer” for the 2019 Edition of Best Lawyers in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. More specifically, his stellar work in personal injury litigation over years with his courtroom skills has awarded him in the “Best Lawyer” spotlight.
“Litigation is my passion,” Lapidus explains, “When a client walks in my office with injuries as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, my heart goes out to them. Obtaining a fair settlement from the other party is always ideal, but when it that settlement isn’t a fair one, I don’t hesitate to take the next step.”
Litigation occurs when one party exercises its legal rights to defend their rights as they relate to the law. And what makes a highly skilled litigator? Lapidus says it’s all about knowing the laws and all the little details that surround the application of the laws to each unique case. Even the seemingly smallest of details, he says, can be the difference between a substantial settlement for a client or nothing at all.
Many personal injury lawyers shy away from cases that involve intense litigation because of the time and effort it takes to build a strong case. Lapidus doesn’t mind that part. In fact, he says, that’s one of the best parts about his job.
“I’ve been studying the laws as they relate to personal injuries for nearly 40 years. I know it inside and out, and I’ve fallen in love with helping people who would otherwise be taken advantage of.”
He continues, “When a company or an individual is at fault for injuries sustained by one of my clients, and they try to get out of paying what is legally and morally due to my client, it really gets to me. Wrong is wrong and right is right. I can’t make a wrong transform to right, but I sure can help make things better for my client, and that’s my ultimate goal.”
Lapidus’ client reviews on the highly acclaimed lawyer review sight Avvo speak for themselves.
One former client says, “I highly endorse Lawrence S. Lapidus as a consummate personal injury attorney. Mr. Lapidus represented me in an automobile accident case and negotiated a fair and reasonable settlement.”
Another client explains, “He handled my case with such professionalism, care, and diligence from beginning to end that left such an impression on me that I highly recommend him to all of my family and friends.”
The “Best Lawyer” award isn’t an easy one to come by in this area. The awards are given our based on peer reviews – in this case – those reviews come by way of other fellow lawyers.
One lawyer, in particular, recalls his previous experience working alongside Lapidus, as they represented different clients on the same auto collision case. “He was wonderful to work with, represented his client very well, and secured a fantastic verdict on a tough case. I highly recommend Larry, as his knowledge in the industry is superb.”
“It’s an honor,” Lapidus says. “I take my job seriously and my clients to heart. When I can help someone significantly ease the financial burden of their injuries, I’m going to do it without hesitation. I love my work and wouldn’t change what I do for the world. Being recognized with this award is very gratifying indeed.”
