It's about time he lost his liscense. He has been engaging in illegal and unethical practices for years!

I feel better that he is not practicing anymore. He used and manipulated clients for his own benefit, not to mention for his own financial gain.

I worked for Larry. After seeing his many unethical doings I had to quit and report. This was many years ago. Obviously he continued on...
