Managing Partner Attorney 

Bria Larson

Family Law & Criminal Defense Attorney

Family Law Mediator, Parenting Facilitator/Coordinator

Extensive Jury Trial experience in Family, Criminal,
Juvenile, and CPS cases

Attorney Bria Larson joined McCarty-Larson, PLLC to assist our clients with their family law and criminal defense matters. She has extensive experience in the courtroom, having tried multiple complex family law jury trials which are very rare in family law.

Bria shares, “Having ridden shotgun with clients on hundreds of family law and criminal law cases, I know it’s important to have a lawyer you trust. Your lawyer will give you guidance and advice through some of the toughest times of your life, so that person should be someone you are confident in. I believe that every case and every client deserves a unique solution. There are no “cookie cutter” answers in the law.

I view myself as the navigator of the process and I believe it is extremely important that my clients should understand all the legal options available to them. Throughout the case, I help my clients make informed decisions to reach their desired outcomes. Whether it is a no-fuss, amicable settlement or a knock-down, drag-out fight to the bitter end, I’ll be in your corner.  Although I firmly believe you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, if we need vinegar, I’ve got plenty.”
