Client Comments

"When someone asks me if I know an expert attorney in all financial service matters, I immediately think of Larry Vinson. What impresses me besides his incredible resume is how accessible he is to his clients. He is very easy to talk to and always has a kind word for me when he sees me. He has a reputation as the go-to attorney for all financial matters. I have worked with CEO's and General Counsels who have used and recommended Larry Vinson for all types of financial matters. I have known Larry since I started in banking compliance in 1996, and he is still my most trusted resource for banking law financial regulations."
