David H. Larkin focuses his practice on catastrophic personal injury, medical malpractice, and large scale construction accident law. Mr. Larkin also has wide experience with toxic tort, professional liability, nursing home malpractice, and general negligence cases. He has successfully briefed and argued several appeals on legal issues such as lead paint liability, New York Labor Law, civil procedure, wrongful death, and contractual indemnification. Mr. Larkin has also litigated cases across the Northeast on a pro hac vice basis. In 2021 and 2022, Mr. Larkin was recognized as a Best Lawyer  One to Watch. He is involved in every stage of his clients’ litigation, meticulously attending to each detail of his cases to ensure that his clients are made whole in the wake of tragedy.

Mr. Larkin is a native New Yorker. He attended the University of Michigan and obtained his law degree from Brooklyn Law School. While in law school, Mr. Larkin interned for Judge Kiyo A. Matsumoto in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York, and Justice Karla Moskowitz of the Appellate Division, First Department of the New York Supreme Court. These internships showed him how judges think and evaluate their cases, an understanding he uses in the courtroom today. Mr. Larkin was also a member of Brooklyn Law School’s Corporate and Real Estate Clinic, where he provided free legal services to New Yorkers living in affordable housing.

After college, Mr. Larkin joined the Peace Corps, where he was stationed in Costa Rica. There, he taught English in a local elementary school and conducted youth development workshops in two orphanages in his site. As a result of his over two years in Central America, Mr. Larkin is fluent in Spanish.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Larkin worked for large defense firms where he represented high profile clients such as the New York Yankees, Northwell Health, Turner Construction, and large New York contractors and landowners. There, he acquired a unique knowledge of how the defendants and their attorneys approach cases, which gives him a distinct advantage in fighting for his current clients.

Mr. Larkin is passionate about the practice of law and fiercely protective of his clients. He believes that, while he cannot erase the harm that his clients have suffered, he can bring them comfort and closure. He works tirelessly on each of his cases to ensure that victims of negligence get the justice they deserve.

"Everyone I communicated with at this firm made me feel like I was part of their family. My needs, feelings, and concerns were carefully considered and given the needed attention. My counselors were available whenever I needed them and became my personal friends. They came highly recommended and lived up to their reputation. I would recommend them to any of my friends without hesitation. This firm gives attorneys a "good name". Clients matter here. They made me feel like I mattered as a person, that I was valued, and not just a possible source of income for the firm. They earned their fees, and you will find that they will also earn your trust." N.W.

I met Diana Carnemolla and Howard S. Hershenhorn during the darkest time of our lives, when my husband was in a coma with very little chances to survive, due to a car accident. The compassion and professionalism that they showed myself and my family during such a difficult time combined with an incredible willingness to get the best results for us have shown us that we had made the absolute best choice. They not only fought extremely hard for what proved to be a very difficult case, but they also emotionally helped us through this incredible ordeal and have been a caring advocate for our family and our case. They got us the best results we could have expected given the circumstances and didn't give up when things got more challenging. We would absolutely recommend their Law Firm to handle the toughest of cases while providing such a great deal of personal support. Diana proved to be personally invested in our case ultimately seeking the best outcome for our family. We cannot thank them enough for what they have done for us. V.P.
