Our Story

William R. Larkin, III ("Bill") and Joseph P. Farrell, III ("Joe") built their careers together at a mid-sized firm with a high volume litigation practice. Joe started at the firm in December 2001 and Bill followed shortly thereafter in April 2003. Both were promoted to Partner in 2008. Bill had the privilege of running the day-to-day operations of the firm as Managing Partner while Joe was the lead trial attorney and Manager of the arbitration and appeals departments. They represented large insurance companies, government agencies and private clients in thousands of lawsuits over the course of 15+ years before leaving the firm to form Larkin Farrell, LLC.

Bill is extremely competitive and loves to compete and just about any sport. His competitive nature is what inspired him to become a litigation attorney. He plays basketball and golf on a regular basis, although less frequently than he used to given his newly assumed roles as husband to wife Jamie and father to Madison and Liam.  He spends much of his free time these days at Gymboree, dance class and soccer practice and loves every minute of it!
