Larson O’Brien LLP exists because the firm’s founding partners love the courtroom and believe that the most skilled litigators share their passion. We efficiently achieve winning results through elite trial advocacy. Our trial experience informs all aspects of litigation strategy.


We also understand that our clients’ lives and businesses do not begin and end at the courthouse steps. We often achieve our most valuable victories before trial. We are committed to understanding every client’s story and business, in order to aggressively and creatively achieve results that meet the client’s objectives early in our involvement.


We are a trial firm.

We are a litigation boutique that does more than litigate. We take cases to trial—and win. Our trial record includes some of the most recognized trial victories in California. Our attorneys know their way around the courtroom, having served as a U.S. District Judge, U.S. Magistrate Judge, arbitrators, federal prosecutors, federal public defenders, assistant district attorneys, and law clerks to federal and state trial judges and appellate justices. Our superior trial experience informs our litigation strategy from the outset of every case and creates winning opportunities before and at trial. We conduct each motion, deposition, and investigation with trial in mind, in order to best position the client for victory.

We are built to win the most important cases.

We are not a full service law firm. We focus on what we love and do best—winning trials and resolving disputes. This allows us to provide the highest value to our clients because our litigation practice never subsidizes underperforming or cyclical practice groups. Our boutique structure allows us to maximize cost effectiveness through competitive rates and alternative fee arrangements and by staffing cases to match each client's needs.

Do not let the term “boutique” fool you. We have the firepower to beat the nation’s biggest firms in high-stakes lawsuits. Our attorneys have graduated from many of the nation's top law schools, received some of the profession's most respected accolades, and tried and won cases as partners and associates at the most prestigious Am Law law firms.

We also are not a niche law firm. We will not settle for doing one thing repeatedly. Our complex commercial and white collar trial practices are broad. We have represented defendants and plaintiffs in almost every industry and seek out the most challenging cases. These experiences hone our litigation skills across an array of subject areas and disciplines, making us more formidable and creative trial lawyers.

We are client-focused.

We take client services seriously. We strive to add value through responsiveness and personal attention to every client and in every matter. We take pride in learning our clients' stories and getting to understand what matters most in their lives and businesses. Our clients' goals are the center of our litigation strategy and how we measure success.
