My wife and I are truly thankful that we met Michael S. (Mickey) Smith and hired him and your fine firm. Mickey has the “bedside manner” of a psychologist. He disarms and relaxes the client so that he can get the highest quality information from which to do his job. He is brilliant, but doesn’t ever talk down to the client. He is like a very talented “basketball player” who could take every shot and completely monopolize the game and get nothing out of the other players on the court (his clients). He could win numerous games that way. He however, chooses to bring his clients into the flow of the game and lift their game up and by doing so, gets a much better outcome. A true talent that he should package and sell.
He also communicates both as frequently necessary as well as thoroughly. His staff follow his lead and communicate in the same fashion. He also made us feel like we were an important part of the decision making process and also gave us the wear-with-all to make the necessary decisions. We are continuing to find our new normal and because of Mickey and your fine firm we are able to move forward without worrying about the financial ramifications of the accident. That is a great weight lifted off of us.
He would be my first call if I, or someone I knew had need of legal representation of any kind.
Finally, Mickey is simply a very nice guy whom I consider a friend!
My sister – in – law recommended your firm after I was in a bad accident. I had spoken to other firms and was very, very, nervous and uncomfortable, to say the least, about the process. I was hurting as well as worried about the extent of my injuries and “what lied ahead” for me and my family. After talking to Mickey on the telephone and then meeting him; I could very comfortably focus all of my efforts on my injuries and recovery; because he and this very fine firm had everything else covered. Mickey and his staff were ALWAYS accessible; were able to answer (or would immediately acquire answers) to all of my and my wife’s questions and address our concerns; and some of the questions and concerns, were in retrospect, somewhat infantile I am sure. However, we were clueless and scared. It was like talking to a friend or a family member. I felt as if we were being tutored in a very difficult class that we had absolutely no background in) by the most caring tutor we could have possibly had – and, in the end, received an “A” in the class. Mickey and his staff took care of an amazingly immense amount of details; medical bills, communications with all insurance companies and other parties involved with this accident and related issues that would have caused me great frustration. They made sure that nothing “fell through the cracks”. Their communication with the insurance companies was unbelievable! So detailed, complete and well written – absolutely amazing! After all was said and done; my life and by extension; my family member’s lives have changed because of the accident. Mickey, his staff, and this firm have gotten for us the resources necessary to make help make changes and move forward with the best possible quality of life! We cannot thank him, his staff and this very, very fine firm enough! I cannot possibly recommend this firm more highly!
I was injured and was recommended by a friend to use Lesser Lesser Landy & Smith. I have to say that Gary Lesser and Joe Landy really are two very compassionate, caring and resourceful attorneys with sharp minds and keen negotiating skills. Their expedient response time and their great customer service, from both of them and their staff, as well as their attention to detail was phenomenal. I am very happy I chose this firm because they confidently made the process seamless from start to finish. I am another happy and satisfied client. Thank you!
First, I would like to say thank you to the entire staff for everything you have done for me. Now, I must say the team at Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith are amazing, respectful, very professional, and caring. I have never experienced such an amazing team outside of my profession as this. Gary Lesser worked extremely hard to not only get my case resolved and made sure all things were handle accordingly, they also made sure I was ok throughout the entire process. I am well pleased and happy that I chose this law firm to represent me and would highly recommend this firm to all my friends and family. Thank you again!
I just completed a case wherein I had suffered a fall at work. I was not only injured, but suffered sinus issues, loss of work, then lost my job. Mr. Lesser was referred to me by a family friend who is also an attorney. Mr. Lesser saw me immediately, and his Associate Attorney Alicia Zweig met with me as well. Not only did Mr. Lesser and Alicia call me often to check on my progress on getting well often, then made sure I got the medical care I needed. They constantly kept me in the loop, giving me details on their progress. I mostly spoke with Alicia, who is an attorney. As a former paralegal of 20 years, I know that communications go through the attorney’s paralegals. Every time I called the office I spoke with someone who had answers for me. I did speak with Alicia’s paralegal Christina, who was not only amazing and pleasant to speak with, but very knowledgeable of my case. I felt like family there. I never felt like a burden, which is so important. Finally, I received my settlement, after Alicia aggressively pursued the best settlement she could. I was informed how she would call the adjuster daily, sometimes several times a day. In conclusion, I would highly recommend this firm. They really care, respect your wishes and always keep you informed. Thanks Gary, Alicia and Christina!
Glenn was recommended to us by a close friend and we are so pleased with him. He was ALWAYS available to talk to us when we had any questions or concerns. He kept us in the loop throughout the whole process. Glenn and his assistant Michele always got back to us in a timely manner. They took a horrible situation that our family experienced and helped us through the entire process. Glenn and his team settled very quickly and worked very hard to get us an amount that our family deserved. We highly recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident. You won’t be disappointed!
I have dealt with many attorneys through the years but Mickey Smith is the best one I have ever dealt with. He is very friendly, personable and gets the job done. He worked very hard for me. From the first time I met him, he treated me like I was part of his family. I HIGHLY recommend him.
As an attorney practicing in PBC for 13 years, I personally know many attorneys working in the area of personal injury law. However, when my own family encountered a tragedy resulting from a car accident, my first and only phone call for help was to Gary Lesser of Lesser, Lesser Landy & Smith. I have known Gary for over 20 years and am very familiar with his firm’s excellent advocacy for their clients, along with their support and outreach to the community. Gary quickly assembled a legal team to support us and to ensure that our legal rights were protected at each and every turn. Gary Lesser, Mickey Smith, Nicole Hunt Jackson and their paralegal staff worked with us through every painful step of our case for almost 2 years – through 3 surgeries, multiple rounds of pain injections, numerous related medical issues and even the emotional turmoil that the devastation created. When we didn’t know how we would survive one more medical bill, procedure or challenge, they were right there to listen and help us through. Ultimately, LLL&S successfully resolved each and every issue related to the car accident, my husband’s injuries and also my needs as his spouse. In addition to their legal advocacy and a remarkable financial result, my husband and I were treated with kindness, understanding and respect by every member of the LLL&S staff. We survived and are now able to move forward to a fresh start! My family wholeheartedly recommends LLL&S without hesitation for all of your injury related legal needs!

I recently had the pleasure of having Joseph Landy represent me in a personal injury lawsuit. He consistently kept me informed about the procedures, strategies, problems, and potential outcomes. Joseph was attentive, patient, and personable. He was very thorough, organized, and extremely detailed in his preparation and presentation of my case. Because of his experience, knowledge, and competence, I received a substantial settlement. I highly recommend Joseph Landy!
Gary Lesser listened and provided me with honest, caring and diligent advice in my case. We had no idea where to begin. Gary Lesser and his firm followed up with our doctors, medical providers, insurers involved while I had major surgery and then recuperated from that. Joseph Landy spearheaded the litigation and helped me and my husband with professionalism and sincere caring. I cannot thank them enough or recommend both of them more highly.
It’s hard to even know how to begin a review for Mickey because he is such an extraordinary attorney. I guess you start off by saying Mickey and Meghan treat you professionally as their client but make you feel like family. From the very first conversation seeking advise on my auto accident case I knew this was the firm I needed on my side. Mickey and Meghan are efficient, I never reached out to them without receiving an immediate response regardless of the time of day or the amount of work they were dealing with. Every step taken throughout the process I was involved and made aware. They are honest and open always. Their sincerity shows and I am more than thankful for the referral I received from another satisfied client. I cannot express my gratitude for making such a painful and difficult process run as smoothly as Mickey and Meghan did. I would recommend these wonderful caring individuals to any person seeking help. Thank you!!
“Joseph Landy and his firm were recommended to me after a slip and fall accident in the lobby area of a condominium where I was a rental tenant. My initial injury of a broken ankle became much more complex as my leg became infected requiring treatment at three area hospitals, three surgeries, innovative stem cell therapy and finally, 9 months after my accident, I was free of intravenous therapy and assistance aids.
The case against the condominium was for negligence in not properly maintaining the public area. Joseph hired experts and elicited testimony to support my case. Suffice it to say, all of my medical bills in excess of $50,000+ were covered in the negotiations with the buildings insurance carrier and additional money was provided for my “pain and suffering”.
The staff at Joseph’s firm had a “Hands on Approach” to building an irrefutable case that led to a mediated settlement. I was very pleased with the legal help provided by Joseph Landy and his firm and have no hesitation in recommending them to other potential clients who would seek their services.”
“My experience with your law firm was nothing short of amazing. My case was handled in a very timely manner and I was more than pleased with the results and care that I received from your team. I can honestly say that you all more than exceeded your two important goals, I was always able to reach you all in a timely manner and as stated before the results were amazing. Your law firm is always the only one I recommend to friends and family and will always be the first choice for me and my parents. We thank you so much for everything.”
“We are writing this letter to express our gratitude and appreciation for the way your lawyers, Josh Ferraro & Laura Scala, handled our case this past month. This lawsuit has caused a lot of stress and strain on our family and Josh and Laura were very sensitive to that as they prepared us for our day in court.
Josh has a strong and commanding presence that put us at ease while also taking control of the courtroom to not allow any situation to escalate out of control nor allow any situation to create chaos that would distract the jury from seeing the truth. Also, his cross examinations were concise, direct, and effective. Laura was meticulous in her research, methodical in her approach, and we believe that her efforts largely contributed to the jury selection and, therefore, the final verdict.
We believe that Josh and Laura are vital assets to your firm and it is because of them that we emphatically recommend your firm.”

“I want to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to you and your staff for your time, effort and dedication to me and my case. It meant a lot to me that you met with me immediately, always took my calls and were available throughout the case.
I was scared and in a lot of pain but your empathy and concern for my wellbeing was so much more than expected. My deepest and sincere thanks for your professionalism, caring and very competent service. It would be an honor and my pleasure to refer you to my family and friends if ever needed.”
“I have to thank you for representing me after my recent car accident in which I was severely injured.
It was only through your diligence that the compensation for the accident was the best I could have received, and I was also very appreciative of the concern you personally showed during my long journey to recovery.
I would like to wish you and your family the very best and may God Bless you for all the good work you are doing out there to protect ordinary folks like me, and I will certainly be recommending you to any of my friends or family who would be in need of your services in the future.”
“I want to thank you so much for the personal interest you took in helping me with my accident cases. Your competence, concern and magnanimity are extraordinary. We appreciate the investment of your time and resources. The office staff was exceptionally helpful and capable as well.”
“After my wife was hit by a pickup truck while walking across the street, we were a bit overwhelmed. We were trying to find good medical care, juggling the myriad of confusing medical bills, and dealing with an uncommunicative, pushy insurance company. It was a nightmare. Fortunately a friend recommended Gary Lesser. Gary and his firm were lifesavers. His first concern was my wife’s recovery, and he referred us to very capable medical professionals. He never rushed us into anything, insisting that my wife’s recovery come first. He told us to forward all her medical bills to him, relieving us of a very stressful part of this situation. It was an immense relief to both of us. Gary dealt with the insurance company, the medical bills, and kept us informed of everything, clearly answering all our questions. We highly recommend Gary Lesser and his firm! They are very capable, efficient and caring. We can’t thank them enough for the way they successfully led us through such a difficult physical and emotional situation.”
“I first used Gary about 17 years ago on a motorcycle accident by a referral. Gary handled everything very professionally from the start and kept me informed from the beginning. Now again I find myself in another situation needing an lawyer. I returned to Gary. Believe me I was very nervous from the first time I used him, but now I find myself at ease with him. Calls and questions quickly answered by his office. He is successful for a reason…..GREAT WORK!!! I promise you will be happy.”
“I met Mr. Lesser through my now deceased mom Mattie Cooper. He came as a referral to her. I have never met a more honest lawyer in my life. Mr. Lesser has never done anything below character for myself as a client, but he pulled from his personal account when I was awarded less than what he felt I should have been awarded. I will never forget his integrity for someone he barely knew. There is “NO” lawyer on this earth who can replace the size of the heart he has behind his chest cavity. I am blessed to have met him and can only say, “it has been an honor and truly a pleasure.” Thank you Mr. Lesser for caring.”
“I was angry, worried and confused when my 81 year old grandmother was in an accident. Medical bills were piling up, she was in pain and didn’t have the ability to navigate insurance and doctors. My family put their trust in Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith and it was the best decision we could have made for my Grandmother. Gary Lesser took the time to explain everything to us. He worked well with my elderly Grandmother. He was honest, responsive and prevailed in the case. I would recommend Gary Lesser and LLL&S, PLLC time and time again.”
“Joe Landy and his associates were by far the most dedicated and professional lawyers one could ask for. Joe was compassionate and very thorough. With his leadership and his control of the courtroom he attained a settlement for my case the likes of which had never been awarded before. I wouldn’t change one thing about my experience with Joe Landy. He is a professional and a gentleman.”
“Michael (Mickey) Smith gets our vote and highest recommendation. He is a remarkable lawyer who exemplified high quality service with mastered communication skills. His responsiveness was first class! His attentiveness to our case added a comfort to what was a horrifically challenging time in our family’s life. Our life was altered when a car hit our World Class athlete on a training ride. Mickey’s dedication and persistence was relentless during a long recovery and transitional period in our life. His sincerity and compassion will always be remembered, along with his integrity and honesty. He is a role model, a remarkable person who made a difference.”
“I was really at a loss of how to proceed after my car accident and everything involved with it. I received a recommendation to contact Mickey Smith at Lesser, Lesser, Landy and Smith. Mickey Smith was a pleasure to work with from the start; he provided support and great advice from the first phone call. Mickey was extremely professional, knowledgeable and empathetic to all my needs the entire process of my case. He kept me informed every step of the way and made sure he personally followed up after doctor appointments and weekly therapy treatments. He showed he really cares about his clients and wants to do what’s best for them. Thanks to Mickey, my case turned out positive for me. I would highly recommend Mickey Smith to anybody in need of an lawyer.”
“I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Mr. Smith in 2013 after my son was struck by a vehicle while riding his bicycle to school. He and his staff members are amazing! Always keeping me updated in a timely manner and kindly explaining what was needed and what to expect as our case progressed. Mickey understood well and was very empathic in regard to my concerns about my son’s well-being in the present, as well as for his future. Highly recommend Mr. Smith and his team members without hesitation!”
“Mickey Smith knew every detail of my case like it was his own. He would email, call or do whatever he needed to do with any questions and concerns immediately. His knowledge of the law and vast experience let me have complete and absolute confidence. Lesser, Lesser, Landy and Smith is an excellent collaboration of staff, paralegals, and other lawyers who all knew the details of my case as well.
This firm does not advertise and the only way they get future clients is by word of mouth recommendations or other Lawyers or doctors.
I give Mr. Mickey Smith an excellent review and would highly recommend him and the law firm of Lesser, Lesser, Landy and Smith.”
“I was a nervous wreck after my accident. I was T-boned at an intersection where a young girl ran a red light. She was looking down as she did so. I can only assume she was texting. I went to the Hospital by Ambulance with severe back pain, knee pain, head tingling, etc. When I was released I called Mr. Chad Hastings with Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith. When he came to the phone, I was rattling things off and he said, ‘Excuse me, but just take a deep breath.’ He asked questions like; are you hurt? Are you OK? Are you in a safe place? Do you need anything that I can get you? And on and on with such a wonderful personal caring tone. After we got beyond that, we started discussing the accident. After that he suggested let’s meet and get everything written down; also he suggested I write down every little thing that came to me as I remembered. As time went by and as he worked hard on my case still hand holding we were both very pleased with the outcome. If and when you need someone for Legal representation, Chad Hastings would be by far the Lawyer I will be calling on next!”
“I lived in Port St. Lucie, and Chad Hastings met me at their Stuart office. I did not think I had a good case because a speeder hit my car when I was driving across a street in PSL. But Chad was really aggressive about getting witnesses and taking photos and he was able to convince State Farm that they had to tender the entire policy limits. He was pretty quick in my case too. For “a small lawyer and the “small firm” he works with, I got a big result.”
