Biography

Larry joined the Springfield office of Kanoski Bresney in 1989 and opened the firm's Bloomington office in 1995. Along with his staff of dedicated legal assistants in Bloomington and Champaign, Larry has successfully represented thousands of personal injury and workers’ compensation clients throughout central Illinois for more than 30 years.

Larry was born in Freeport, Illinois, and raised in the Chicago area with three brothers. After graduating from Illinois State University in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science degree focusing on business administration and accounting, he attended the University of Illinois College of Law in Urbana-Champaign, earning his Juris Doctor degree in 1987. Larry's first position was at a general practice law firm in Bloomington before he joined Kanoski Bresney to concentrate on personal injury and workers' compensation cases. Larry quickly realized that the laws are often too complicated for lay people to understand, and insurance companies like to take advantage of this fact. By focusing his legal work on helping injured people, Larry has sought to level the playing field with big insurance companies.

Larry has been married to his wife, Karen, since 1988. They share their home with three rescue pugs – Ebony, Lola, and Reilly – and five rescue cats – Fuzz, Banjo, Oscar, Marley, and Pepper. Together Larry and Karen are big believers in giving back, and donate their time and talents to several local non-profit organizations.

Larry’s community service activities include:

Wish Bone Canine Rescue, Bloomington - President, board of directors
Animal Protective League, Springfield- Past board member
American Red Cross of McLean County - Past board member
Prairie State Legal Services, Bloomington - Volunteer
