Larry Scanlon has been litigating disputes since 1997, when he was admitted to the Illinois State Bar. He is a member of the United States District Court for the Northern, Central, and Southern Districts of Illinois. He is also a member of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana.
Larry has represented attorneys in malpractice suits, defended police officers in state and federal court, and defended municipalities on a variety of cases.
Other areas of practice include bankruptcy, foreclosure, premises and products liability, insurance defense litigation, and personal injury - both defense and prosecuting claims.
It is very important to Larry Scanlon, and this firm as it grows, that each client: 1) feels that his or her story is heard; 2) that the important legal issues are attended to; and 3) that the client understands the status of the case at any point in time during the lawsuit, consultation or legal interaction. The bottom line is that each client is unique and deserves to be treated with respect.
Prior to graduating from college, I made the commitment to volunteer as a teacher at a high school in American Samoa. After returning from that two-year obligation, I attended law school and practiced in various areas of the law. In my eleventh year as an attorney, I elected to further my education and earn a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology - Counseling Specialization. Doing so has enabled me to achieve my goal of becoming both a psychotherapist and an attorney and counselor at law. In these roles, I am able to successfully employ my strengths as both an analytical and perceptive counselor. Ultimately, this better serves my clients.
