Jaffe advises Glantzlaw’s clients in the areas of: Bankruptcy; Collections, including providing clarity on Contracts, Promissory Notes, and Small Claims procedures; Consumer Finance, assisting Debtor or Creditor clients with Warranties, Credit Reports, and other matters; both Long and Short Term Disability and Social Security; Education; Foreclosure and Loan Modification; revisions of Medical and Homeowners Insurance. Lawrence’s experience encompasses thousands of cases in the areas of Consumer Finance, Collections, Insurance, Administrative Law, and Child Support, as well as in Administrative Hearings and Mediations.
From a very young age, Lawrence was interested in American politics and the legal system. He determined that choosing a career in the legal arena would be a means to positively affect change in both areas. He began his career as an attorney for the State of New York, handling Child Support Enforcement Cases, followed by a position as Prosecutor for the New York City Police Department. Within that organization, he worked with the Internal Affairs Division and covered cases of Departmental misconduct at all levels of personnel.
Relocating to South Florida, Lawrence took a position as Senior Attorney General with the Office of the Attorney General, State of Florida, filing and prosecuting Dependency cases, from inception through trial. Other public appointments followed, including Assistant State Attorney with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, this time filing and prosecuting Child Support Enforcement cases. His last public appointment prior to joining Glantzlaw was as Managing Attorney for the State of Florida, Office of Regional Counsel, Civil Division, where he defended custodians in Dependency Proceedings, as well as managing a staff of attorneys and legal assistants in all daily operations of a law office.
