Larry A. Lehmbecker, Esq.
Firm founder Larry Lehmbecker was raised in Renton, Washington. He graduated from the University of Washington in 1983 and University of California Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco in 1986. Upon graduation, Larry decided he wanted to serve the people with whom he grew up. He moved back to the Seattle area and opened a general law practice providing legal services such as family law, estate planning, small business consulting, personal injury and workers’ compensation. However, he soon learned that the work he found most compelling was representing people who were injured in accidents. Often in desperate need of assistance to rebuild their lives, Larry changed his practice to a Bellevue injury law firm in 1990 and has focused in this area of law ever since.
Larry has progressive values and a desire to ensure his firm does its part to promote diversity and social equity. Lehmbecker Law is a leader in Washington State, equally serving all members of the diverse community. Six members of our firm are bilingual in Spanish.
Larry is a 20-year Eagle member of the Washington State Association for Justice the oldest and largest civil justice advocacy organization in the Pacific Northwest.
Larry also owns Vin du Lac Winery in Chelan, WA.

Daniel McLafferty, Esq.
Daniel began his practice of law in the Seattle area in 2012 after graduating from Seattle University School of Law. He focuses in fighting personal injury cases and is our full-time litigation attorney. He litigates cases through discovery, depositions, motions, arbitrations, mediations, and trial, and offers support to our pre-litigation team as well. During his first month on the job with Lehmbecker Law Firm, he took a case to jury trial in Snohomish County and won!
Daniel actually began his career defending large insurance companies. In the process, he became deeply sensitive to the struggles of the injured people. He decided he wanted to dedicate himself to the pursuit of holding the insurance companies accountable and went to work for a Seattle plaintiff attorney. This transition was a success and he is now dedicated to using his knowledge from his defense days to vigilantly pursue personal injury claims for Washington residents.
Dan was named a “Rising Star” by Washington Super Lawyers magazine in 2016 and 2017.
