Attorney Profile

As a partner with the Larson, Larson & Dauer law firm in Mission Hills, California, attorney Mark V. Larson devotes his practice to representing the rights and entitlements of a diverse range of clients throughout Southern California who have legal needs involving any of the following:

·        Workers' compensation

Coming from a long line of attorneys in his family, Mr. Larson witnessed firsthand the tactics insurance companies would use to reduce or deny claims for the injured and disabled. Through this experience, he developed a deep and abiding passion for assisting those in need, and he has achieved notable success fighting against insurance providers on behalf of his plaintiff clients to help them recover the full amount of compensation and benefits they deserve.

Fully committed to providing the highest level of advocacy and support possible to those he serves, Mr. Larson limits the number of cases he handles at any given time to ensure he can devote more of his attention on each one of his clients. Throughout his career, he has earned a reputation for providing compassionate counsel to his clients while aggressively pursuing the most favorable outcomes possible for them both inside and outside the courtroom.

After earning his undergraduate degree from California Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo, Mr. Larson attended Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles, where he obtained his Juris Doctor, and he received his license to practice from The State Bar of California in 2012.

From the time he was 17 years old, Mr. Larson served as law clerk at his brother's law firm and continued to work at the firm after becoming an attorney. There, he gained invaluable experience handling cases involving traumatic brain injuries, medical malpractice and other catastrophic injuries. He then joined his uncle's law firm, where he focused primarily on workers' compensation claims. During this time, his uncle mentored him in the complexities of workers' compensation cases and the most effective techniques to obtain maximum compensation.

Through these experiences as well as the success he has achieved at Larson, Larson & Dauer, Mr. Larson has become one of the region's leading attorneys for workers' compensation and catastrophic personal injury claims.

Scholarly Lectures/Writings:

  • Earlier this week, I spoke with Mark Larson of Larson, Larson & Dauer where he covers workers’ compensation cases.  Larson tells me, “The entire workers’ compensation system, like everything, is political and due to the insurance companies unlimited money to lobby for legal changes that protect their own interests, the system is becoming highly complex and much worse than it has ever been.” Critiquing the system overall Larson tells me that if the workers’ compensation system were allowed to function as was its original design, there would be fewer claims and bureaucratic processes than result in low settlements. In fact, just last month the discussion around freelancers and workers’ compensation came to a head in California where businesses are being challenged by a potential law which would make it harder for them to classify workers as independent contractors in order to avoid paying unemployment insurance taxes and workers’ compensation premiums., Contributing author at Forbes, Interviewed and Contributor, https://www.forbes.com/sites/julianvigo/2019/08/08/virtual-freelancers-and-the-future-of-human-employment/#7f1a5f0550d4, General, 2019
