Thankful for Kara Larson
Kara Larson is a Winner. She took my case to trial and won, her badassery in court is expert level. Honesty, Integrity, Savy, all business, all class, fierce, confident, detail oriented, well prepared, highly intelligent, expert communicator and still possesses a certain humility that makes her charming, reassuring, and formidable. I’m a fan of Kara Larson, ever so grateful she stood on my side, I can’t possibly say enough good of her.

Smart, professional, and effective
Ms. Larson helped me painlessly navigate what could have been a messy, costly divorce. I cannot imagine how things would have turned out had I gone to a different attorney (actually, I can, but I don't want to). Ms. Larson's professional demeanor, knowledge of the law, and genuine compassion for her clients is unparalleled. I have since consulted her on other matters, including copyright infringement, and her advice was impeccable. I cannot recommend Ms. Larson's counsel strongly enough.

Defending My Constitutional Rights.
In the summer of 2017 I was arrested at a protest. Part of my demonstration was burning the American flag in protest of white supremacy in our government. This was an action protected by the first amendment but I was arrested anyway. The police charged me officially with improperly burning garbage, and public intoxication. I was assigned a public defender who was uninterested in the facts of the case. Kara Larson took my case and I am so grateful that she did. She not only filed the motions needed, had the courage to argue the civil rights aspect of the case even though it was a controversial and distasteful demonstration to some, but she also explained my rights to me and her strategy every step of the way. Having never been arrested before I was very intimidated by my situation but Kara Larson put me at ease and ultimately got my case dismissed. Friendly, talented, and passionate about what she is doing. 10/10 would hire again.
