About Me

I have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and after college worked in the financial sector for several years before and during law school.  I clerked with the Honorable Justice Morris Pashman and worked with John Finnerty, a pioneer in the area of divorce and Family Law.  My unique background and skill set has enabled me to understand and effectively advocate for my clients.

  • Aniello David Cerreto

    I first met Mr. Larocca as a mediator perhaps 10 years ago. Recently from 20113 until 2015 he became my adversary in a high net worth family law matter involving divorce, domestic violence, and subsequent family relocation case. The parties initially were very non-amicable and litigious and the issues got very intense for them at select times. Where lesser lawyers would have simply walked away from the representation, Frank was able to remain focused, calm, diligent, professional, honest and constant in his representations and presentations. While there was litigation early on, over time with the continued constant professionalism displayed, It allowed the parties to finally have a meeting of the minds, arrive at a peaceful settlement treaty by consent, and allowed the family post divorce to become closer than when it began. I endorse this lawyer and look forward to working with him in the future.

  • John E Finnerty

    I endorse this lawyer. Frank is a former partner of mine who is a very competent attorney. When we worked together, the mirrored my passion for the causes we undertook and the clients we represented. We accomplished some pretty spectacular results in a case we undertook. I am proud that he has gone on to establish his own practice. He takes what he does seriously and he is a committed advocate.
