I called Vance about 3 months ago after my two children and I were involved in a car accident (he had helped me out about 5 years ago with a family/domestic matter). My daughter had gotten hurt and my car was a mess. He referred my family and I to the appropriate doctors and people to fix my car. I also received some extra money to cover the expenses for the time I was out of work because of the accident and home at home to take care of my children.

Great Attorney, Knowledgable in his field of practice
A friend who had used Vance after her motor vehicle accident reffered him to me after I got in my car wreck and was hospitalized. He was very thorough during the entire process keeping me informed with what was going on with my case and always checking in to see how I was doing during treatment. He was able to get me a fair settlement in the case, and with that being said one that I was extremely happy with. Mr. Larimer is very professional and takes his cases seriously. He genuinely cares about his clients and wants to give them what they deserve as he did for me as well as my friend that used him.

Terrific Lawyer - Educational and Helpful
Mr Larimer and his associates proved to be an absolute godsend in our wrongful death lawsuit. He and his team were extremely educational, patient, understanding and resourceful in settling our case in an expeditious manner. My family and I had almost no idea what to expect in our situation and Mr Larimer took his time to meet us at our home and he explained to us the overall process, what could happen and forecasted indeed what exactly happened. Mr Larimer did an extensive amount of work that was transparent to us, but they always kept us in the loop of what was happening and how our case was progressing. We eventually settled the case out of court (within 9 months of starting the lawsuit) and we could not be more comfortable with the results. Furthermore, I found Mr Larimer and his team to be above-board, very ethical and a credit to his profession in all of our interactions. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr Larimer again and would not hesitate to ask for his counsel should I ever happen to require it.

A compassionate attorney who delivers results
Vance Larimer is a fantastic attorney. From the moment that he has represented my case he has not over promised nor under delivered. From the get-go Vance and his staff were totally empathetic of my situation and looked out for my best interest, both medically as well as emotionally. Throughout the legal process he and his team have kept me fully abreast of what is happening with my case and he has been always realistic in communicating to me what the potential outcome could be. I am happy to say that with his, and his teams, help my outcome was much better than what I imagined. I highly recommend Vance Larimer to anyone who has had a bad accident and wants a compassionate attorney with the patience and experience to win. Thank you Vance!!!

Vance personally reviewed and planned my case. While he has staff to assist him, he was always actively involved in my case every step of the way. His staff was always supportive and professional. They know their "stuff"!

Who do you call for a personal injury attorney.... Larson & Larimer
When I rearended in a car accident, I had no idea where to turn to for help with my claim. A friend referred me to Vance's firm for assistance. Vance and Jake helped me line up medical treatment and negotiated a fair settlement of my claim. Their firm communicated on a regular basis and kept me updated on the progress. Their knowledge, background and experience, took a huge load off my shoulders and allowed me to focus on recovery.

Office Manager
My husband and I retained Mr. Larimer's services for a personal injury case. He handled the case just right--with forcefulness when needed and finesse when imperative. He brought our case to successful resolution. The medical office where I work has recommended Mr. Larimer to personal injury patients, and they are happy with his services, also.

Vance was great with my family matters
Vance was very professional with my case. Divorces are not the most pleasurable things to go through, but he handled me with compassion and grace. Vance was prompt, thorough and detailed. He told me what I needed to hear, informed me of the actions needed and was professional through the end. I highly recommend Vance and his firm Larson and Larimer

Highly Recommended, Knowledgeable and Hard working, Helpful Attorney
I was in a situation where I had to hire an attorney to collect medical benefits for a car accident I was in caused by another person w out insurance. I didn't know who to go to and Mr. Larimer came highly recommended to me by someone I know. I presented my case to him in hopes he would take it on. Luckily he chose to do so, and he helped me through out the entire process learn the legal aspect, gain knowledge of what I needed to do, what I would be going through and kept me updated every time he was notified as to what was happening. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. I am so incredibly thankful and happy with my decision that I hired Vance to take on my case. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to withstand going through trial and coming out with a victory on our verdict!

Best Lawyer in Colorado- I have trusted the counsel of Vance Larimer for both my business and personal law matters
Vance and his team at Larson & Larimer are true professionals. They have assisted me in both business and personal law matters. Vance has been very reliable and knowledgable in regards to my legal matters. He has helped me save thousands of dollars and has provided me great consultation. After spending a fortune with a large Colorado law firm, I approached Vance and his team at Larson & Larimer, and I was amazed at the difference. While the big law firm was all about the billable hours, Vance Larimer took the time to understand my case, and find creative ways to settle the case. I would strongly urge anyone that is hiring an attorney or law firm, to consider Vance and the team at Larson & Larimer. I learned the hard way that sometimes the largest firms in Colorado are focused on increasing their revenue while Vance and his team are all about getting the job done, with the best interest of the client as a focal point for all they do.
