Eric Larsen's Story

Eric LarsenI am Eric Larsen, Founder of Larsen Law PLLC, and I have literally been around the criminal justice system my entire life. My father was a decorated Homicide Detective with the Michigan State Police. Some of his cases have been featured on the hit television shows, Forensic Files, Cold Case Files, and True Detectives. Following in his footsteps, I attended college at Michigan State University and obtained my degree in Criminal Justice. After college, I began a 12-year career with the Michigan Department of Corrections working in the prison system as well as probation and parole.

As a probation/parole officer, I spent a great deal of time in court learning the system. It was here that I discovered that my true passion was helping folks avoid the injustices of a system that was supposed to be fair. I've always fought for the folks who can't fight for themselves and I take great pride in being that last line of defense for my clients.

Inspired to do more, I made the decision to go to law school. I graduated from The Thomas M. Cooley Law School with honors while balancing the demands of full time work and law school with my duties as a husband and father of three children.

Prior to founding Larsen Law PLLC, I co-founded Nash and Larsen PLLC and also practice as a member of Papa and Roberts PLLC in Brentwood, Tennessee. Before relocating to Tennessee, I worked as an associate attorney at Cline Close Dyer in Midland, Michigan where I successfully represented clients in the areas of family law, criminal defense, general civil litigation, and other matters.
