Austin, Texas

Larry practices out of Tarle Law's Austin Texas Office representing clients throughout the state.

After graduating college with a B.A. in communications, Larry became a pioneer in the legal video business providing videotaping services to attorneys.  While recording depositions, day-in-the-life documentaries, and wills he became interested in practicing law and decided to attend law school. 

For most of his 30 years practicing law Larry focused on insurance defense litigation.  He tries, arbitrates, and mediates diverse cases in state and federal court.  Through Larry’s extensive experience handling and analyzing complex legal matters, he developed the ability to quickly assess each case and identify the facts requiring development to achieve a favorable resolution as early as practical.
