Extremely knowledgeable: Landlord-Tenant
Van was instrumental in assisting me with a tenant issue. After months of not receiving rent from my tenants, I hired Van to evict my tenants. While this was an stressful time, he was extremely patient and helped me understand the eviction process. I can't thank him in enough for his persistence and I was very lucky to have a lawyer with his level of expertise represent me.

Highly recommended
I could not say enough to thank Atty Van Larson for the help he gave me during my toughest time when I was extremely stressed out and anxious during my divorce process. He is knowledgeable in his field and very perseverance to keep my case moving. Atty Larson walked me through what needs to be done and what to expect. He was thruthful to what he says and don't want me to have a false hope. Atty Larson was well prepared each court hearing. He will talk to me in the room at the court house before and after court. Atty Larson care for his clients and went over bored to help me. He suggests things inorder for me to save money. For example, he would ask me to drop documents instead of sending it through email or he will ask me to make copies of documents for him and for other party instead of him doing it. Atty Larson responds quickly whether on email or text even on weekends. He was always on top of everything and would remind me in advance of the next court date. He was also prompt on giving me an update of my case. I am highly recommending Atty. Van Larson as he is the best attorney based on my experience.

Trusted Legal Advisor
I’ve known Attorney Van Larson since 1997. He is one of the top lawyers in Kane County and the State of Illinois. He has represented me in countless legal matters, including several complicated family law matters and real estate transactions. He is well-respected within the legal community having witnessed his interactions with opposing counsel, judges and other legal professionals in the courtroom. Additionally, I’ve referred countless individuals and every one who has chosen him for representation has expressed how pleased they were with his legal expertise and results. He is one of the fairest, most realistic attorneys I’ve ever known. He shoots straight and doesn’t over promise. He listens to his clients, and is very patient when working through challenging and emotionally charged circumstances. No matter what the legal matter, hands down, I would recommend Van to consult with you. He will give a fair assessment and will only take your case if he believes he’s the best person for the job.

Consistently dedicated, honest and detail orientated representation.
I would like to thank Van for his dedicated and personal service to myself and family over the last ten+ years. I was consistently reassured by his honest and upfront style, particularly in our notably difficult custody case. I appreciated his sensitivity to our individual circumstance, by not applying a "one size fits all" approach to our case. I can not thank him enough for making it possible for our niece to grow up in a safe and stable home. She has successfully graduated high school and is now attending college. For Van's exceptional representation of us in this case as plaintiffs, as well as his work with us as defendants in our personal injury case, I will continue to highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal advice. Thank you! Laura R.

Above all, Integrity and Wisdom
I work hard to give my clients the opportunity they need to meet their stated goals. They rely on me to be trustworthy, responsive to their needs, and respectful of their right to choose their own path. When my clients are facing legal matters, my expectations are that their attorney will represent them with the same passion and integrity. Van Larson puts his all into what he does. He offers no-nonsense counsel, and demands accountability from the system and his clients. I like that about him. Job well done, Van!

When my wife and I were looking for a lawyer to represent us, we came across Van A. Larson, P.C. He provided us input before we made the decision to hire him. We ultimately decided to go with Van because he seemed to genuinely care. He returned our calls/emails in timely manner. He explained in detail what was going to happen and what we should expect, but left the final decision up to us. He never pushed us to make any decision, but rather provided us facts to come to our own conclusion.

Van Larson
Van Larson and his partnertook my $1000 deposit in 1990. After a half hour consultation I gave them a $1000 retainer, only to be informed the next day they were dropping me as a client. No explanation except they didn't want to go against my wife's attorney. When I asked for a refund, too late. They had already spent the money reading my files. I didn't have any files at that point. It was the day after I was served. So I am still mad about them keeping my $1000.
