Larry Lowenthal is an experienced Real Estate Expert Witness and Realtor in southeast Florida.
Well regarded as an expert in Realtor ethics, Larry has been retained as an expert in dozens of matters in which real estate brokers and agents have been charged with malpractice, negligence, dishonesty, failure to disclose, failure to meet the standard of care, and related violations of real estate law in Florida, Michigan, West Virginia, North Dakota, and Hawaii, as well as breaches of the Realtor Code of Ethics.
