Get to Know Us

Our philosophy is that the freedom that we, as Americans, enjoy is only possible when each of us is careful to avoid causing harm to others. Thus, the Lara Law Firm’s mission is to preserve our shared freedom by promoting a careful society.

If you were injured due to another’s carelessness, the law of negligence provides a remedy for you. The heart of the law of negligence is the concept of care. If the person who caused your injury owed a duty of care to you but he or she breached that duty, then the law holds that person, or his insurance company, liable to you for the harm you suffered.


Thus, we believe that by holding careless people accountable for the harm they cause, we play a role in deterring carelessness, creating a more careful society, and thus maximizing our shared freedom. It is this vision that guides us in serving you.

We understand the importance of ensuring that you are duly compensated when you are injured due to another’s carelessness because we believe that such carelessness causes harm to us all.


Furthermore, we bring the value of care to each of the areas of law that we practice. Our laws are complicated, and our adversarial system of justice can be intimidating. Have you been arrested? Are you facing divorce or being mistreated by your employer? Are you trying to navigate our complicated immigration laws?


If so, you are facing a difficult problem that can have serious consequences for your reputation, your future and your freedom. You do not need the added stress of facing your legal problems alone and without legal representation.


Call us. We can help.

I was sailing along toward my goal of becoming a Registered Nurse when someone rear-ended me while I was stopped at a traffic light. The accident turned my life upside down. My studies were interrupted, I had to drop classes because of all the time I lost, my car was totaled, and, worst of all, I was injured. I called Richard, and he was a tremendous help. He got me enough money to buy a new car, and he also got me $50,000 for my injury. This was the maximum amount available under the other driver’s insurance policy, the best possible outcome. Thank you, Richard! You’re the best!
