Larson, Larson & Dauer, ALC has over 40 years of winning cases and more than half a BILLION dollars for our clients
Mark Larson is a partner at Larson, Larson & Dauer, ALC. Mark's practice is primarily focused on workers' compensation. Mark is from a family of attorneys and has grown up watching insurance companies repeatedly deny benefits to those that have been injured by their insured. This is how Mark began to develop a passion for the law and fighting against insurance companies.
Whether it is a workers' compensation case or a personal injury matter, Mark has made it his goal and business practice to keep his caseload manageable so that he can give each client the individualized attention that they need. He has found that this increases the overall value of each respective case and increasing the success of his firm. Most importantly, it ensures that each client costs the insurance companies as much money as possible, while obtaining the maximum amount of money for his clients.
Prior to coming to work at Larson, Larson & Dauer, ALC., Mark had been working in civil litigation at his older brother's personal injury law firm Carpenter, Zuckerman & Rowley, LLP. Mark started working for this firm as a law clerk, at the age of 17. Mark continued working at this law firm throughout law school until he eventually became an attorney. After becoming an attorney, Mark continued developing his skills and moved into complex litigation involving traumatic brain injuries, medical malpractice, amputations and other permanently disabling injuries. Mark was eventually approached with a job offer by his Uncle Timothy A, Larson.
Timothy A. Larson immediately began to mentor Mark and assist him in understanding the many complexities of workers' compensation. Tim taught Mark how to maximize the value of a case, while ensuring each client's best interests were being considered. Mark has taken the teachings from his uncle and combined it with his prior personal injury experience to become one of the younger recognized workers' compensation attorneys in Los Angeles.
Like his uncle, Mark prides himself in assisting clients that have sustained very serious injuries while working, including but not limited to amputations, toxic exposure, severe burns, head trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, smoke inhalation, cancer and various orthopedic injuries.
Mark graduated from Southwestern Law School and attended California Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo for his Undergraduate work.
Mark continues to build on the solid foundation and training established by his uncle and is hopeful that one day he will be as recognized and as well respected by his peers as his uncle.
