Lawrence S. Jacobs

I enjoy helping people – and their businesses – resolve all kinds of issues.

A same-sex couple in Arlington who’ve been together for 35 years with no estate planning documents. A young doctor looking to start his own practice in Silver Spring. A business in D.C. whose major customer just filed bankruptcy. A subcontractor who hasn’t been paid on a construction job. These are just a few of the clients that I’ve helped recently. Of course, over the last 40 years, there have been thousands more.  Some are clients who became friends because I treated them well. Others are friends who became clients because they trusted me.

Many of them tell me that I can look at a problem and come up with a solution that no one else has considered. I consistently hear that they are surprised how quickly I return their phone calls…that I keep to the deadlines that we’ve set…and that the work that I do is good because I listen to them. For those reasons and more, clients keep coming back to me; I wouldn’t want it any other way.

I’m also very proud to have led our firm in offering focused service to same-sex couples and to the LGBT community in general. For more about this work, please visit

Larry has helped me navigate through business negotiations and the start-up of my own business. One of the things I appreciate the most is that I know he always has my back. He has my absolute trust and respect. I could go on. Larry is awesome. If you need awesome, work with him.”
