Larry is the owner and managing partner of a litigation law firm located in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. Prior to starting his own firm, Larry was a partner in Smith, White, Sharma & Halpern, a general litigation law firm located in Atlanta, Georgia, where he clerked while at Emory Law. After law school, Larry was hired as an associate at the firm, and soon rose to be a partner. As lead or co-counsel in dozens of civil and criminal trials, Larry soon focused his practice in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, and immigration-related deportation or criminal cases. In the fall of 2007, Larry relocated to Ann Arbor, Michigan, his original hometown, and he has continued to generate a record of success for his clients.
