Larkin was elected Ward 1 Commissioner last May in Radnor Township, Delaware County, and will serve alongside Commissioner Lisa Borowski, who was just re-elected as President of the Board.
Larkin is a member of Gawthrop Greenwood’s Litigation Department, where he focuses his practice on municipal and corporate litigation. He was also recently named to the board of directors of the United Way of Chester County, and is a former chair of the American Red Cross Leadership Board.
“It’s a pleasure to serve the township where I’m raising my own family, and work to continue modernizing and repairing the township’s aging infrastructure,” said Larkin.
Prior to joining Gawthrop Greenwood, Larkin was an appellate litigator in the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, where he appeared regularly before the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and periodically handled appeals to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. He continues his appellate practice today, civilly, before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and Pennsylvania’s Superior and Commonwealth Courts.
Larkin’s published works have appeared in law journals at the Georgetown University School of Law, Vanderbilt Law School, the University of Florida Law School and the American Journal of Trial Advocacy, as well as in the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Bar Quarterly and At Issue publications.
Larkin is an alumnus of Oberlin College, where he graduated with honors. While at Villanova Law School, he received the Pennsylvania Environmental Law Forum scholarship and was a Dean’s Merit Scholar. He has also received the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers’ Association’s James J. Mandarino Award for Excellence in Trial Advocacy. He was named a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers Magazine, and a “Top Lawyer” by Main Line Today.
