Our Firm History
Columbus Workers Compensation Lawyers Furthering a Family Legacy
Helping injured workers in
Columbus, Ohio, since 1928
Richard’s successful resolutions of those criminal cases led to his long-term relationship with the United Mine Workers in handling their workers compensation claims. Since that time, the firm has been dedicated to representing injured workers before the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and the Industrial Commission.
Over the ensuing decades, our firm has expanded and now includes a statewide workers compensation law practice. Through both direct representation, and in association with regional and local firms, we help injured workers at all levels of their claims.
Over time, we became a family law firm. Richard Larrimer’s nephew, Gavin Larrimer, joined the firm in 1961. Richard’s son, Terrence Larrimer, joined the firm in 1974. Richard’s nephew, Paul Navin, and attorney Craig Aalyson joined as partners soon thereafter.
Richard Larrimer retired from active practice in 1979. Paul Navin and Craig Aalyson retired from the practice in the early 1990’s. All three have since passed away.
Over the last 20 years, a new generation of younger attorneys has joined the firm as partners. Our firm now includes Columbus workers comp attorneys Joseph F. Navin II, John Larrimer, Courtney Larrimer-Klatt, Kevin Larrimer and Darla Kaikis. Gavin Larrimer’s son, Craig E. Larrimer, was also a partner until his untimely death in early 2006.
Associate attorney Thomas Reitz joined the firm in 2004. He focuses on trial litigation and manages cases appealed to the Court of Common Pleas. In 2005, associate attorney Paul R. Goodburn joined the firm to represent injured workers before the Ohio Industrial Commission. He primarily appears for our clients in Columbus and Logan, Ohio. Associate attorney Aaron A. Bucco joined the firm in 2008. He and partner Joseph Navin staff the Zanesville, Newark and Shadyside branch offices.
Our Columbus workers compensation lawyers have fully staffed offices in Columbus, Zanesville, Newark and Lima, Ohio. Our Shadyside office is partially staffed and remains available for client conferences. All of our offices remain dedicated exclusively to representing injured workers before the Ohio Industrial Commission and Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Administration.
