About Me

Larry Free has practiced exclusively in the area of Workers’ Compensation since 1995. His understanding and appreciation of workers began through his own employment history. In his early years, he worked at a variety of jobs in the food service industry, cabinet making, carpentry, appliance repair, and delivery. He originally joined the firm as a “runner” and worked as a clerk during law school. He became an associate following graduation and was admitted to partnership in 1999.
