Attorney Bio

Laurie J. Debarr


My most memorable moment as an attorney wasn't winning a lofty legal argument; it was having a client hug me and tell me I had changed her life. That's fighting the good fight.

Life Outside the Courtroom

When I’m not advocating for my clients, I spent a great deal of time advocating for animals. Particularly, I am a passionate supporter of animal rights and serve on the board of SNAP, a non-profit organization that provides low or no-cost spay and neuter services to residents of Central Pennsylvania.

What Laurie J. Debarr's Clients Have to Say

  • I was in a car accident, my first, and have a neck injury. I had never been through the complicated process that kicks in after such an event. I was in pain, unsure of what to do. My husband contacted the firm and it was wonderful. Any questions or problems were taken care of. My husband was able to take care of me instead of navigating billing issues and dealing with the insurance companies involved. My settlement was handled quickly and gave me the best settlement available. It made things much easier for us and I would highly recommend Handler, Henning & Rosenberg.

  • I was involved in a peculiar vehicular accident and on top of being injured, was getting the runaround and denial of benefits and coverage from the insurance companies. This forced me to look for representation and I was referred to Handler, Henning & Rosenberg by another attorney. I was given great care and after only one meeting, I could stop worrying about the mounting medical bills and start focusing on my recovery. The whole staff was knowledgeable and the entire experience with them was great.
