“We look forward to the fresh look and enthusiasm Eric and Graham will bring to this task, and hope with their help to encourage the younger members of the Bar to participate in the LCBA’s mission to support our profession and our service to the community of Litchfield County,” LCBA President Regina Wexler said.
Attorney Moller, the son of Cramer & Anderson Partner Barry Moller, joined the firm in October 2017, and Attorney Larson arrived in May 2018. Both are Associates, and both joined the LCBA when they came to the firm.
Attorney Wexler had reached out to see if any Cramer & Anderson attorneys wanted to join a committee, and Attorneys Larson and Moller attended an LCBA executive panel meeting July 10 with the expectation of potentially being asked to join an existing committee. Instead they were asked to lead a new Young Lawyers Committee.
“It’s a good opportunity for us to step up and keep a tradition going,” Attorney Moller said, noting that many Cramer & Anderson attorneys have provided leadership on LCBA committees.
While their first step will be a conversation with Attorney Wexler about specific details and goals, Attorney Larson said, “We have a pretty good idea of what the 40,000 foot view is.” Attorney Moller added, “We are tasked with finding younger members.”
Attorneys Larson and Moller see the Young Lawyers Committee as “a gateway for individuals who don’t otherwise participate in the LCBA,” as well as an opportunity to foster engagement within the community of young attorneys practicing in largely rural Litchfield County, including through social events.
The new roles feel appropriate, as Attorney Larson has a background in student government leadership, and Attorney Moller’s grandfather, the late William R. Moller, considered one of the best trial lawyers in Connecticut, was a president of the Hartford County Bar Association.
Attorney Moller, who lives in Danbury, is a sports fan who plays pick-up hockey at the Danbury Ice Arena and loves to travel. He works primarily in the firm’s New Milford office.
A native of the greater Buffalo, N.Y., Attorney Larson lives in Bristol, where he has been engaged in a project involving the demolition and ground-up reconstruction of a family cabin on a lake in the Forestville section of town. He works primarily in the Litchfield office.
“It’s a good thing to have co-chairs who are on opposite ends of Litchfield County,” Attorneys Moller and Larson agreed.
