Mr. Larrabee is a graduate from DePaul University College of Law and spent six years as a prosecutor with the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office. He then returned to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula where he now serves clients in a variety of practice areas. In this discussion, they dissect the rural attorney shortage crisis and discuss the unique challenges associated with a rural practice. Finally, they consider how to entice young lawyers to leave larger metro areas like Chicago to join practices in small towns across rural America.
