About Larry McCotter
Larry's practice has been dedicated exclusively to Criminal Defense and Juvenile Delinquency Defense for nearly 20 years. 

Larry was born in the Bronx, New York City, and grew up on Long Island, New York and in Miami, Florida. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in Tennessee, Larry and his wife served for ten years as Baptist missionaries in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

Upon their return to the United States, Larry became the official Spanish-language court interpreter for the Dallas County Public Defender’s Office in Dallas, Texas, serving in that capacity for five years. It was there that his dream of becoming a criminal defense attorney was born. 

Those years of close, first-hand observation in the criminal courts in Dallas convinced him that there will always be a great need for quality attorneys in the criminal defense arena to defend the rights, reputation and liberty of accused citizens - attorneys who are skilled, zealous, compassionate and ethical.

Upon being accepted into the University of Houston Law Center in 1992, Larry and family moved from Dallas to Houston. Attending law school at night, he worked full-time during the day as a paralegal in the law firm Butler & Binion, L.L.P.   In law school, Larry focused on criminal defense, and received the highest grade in his class in Criminal Trial Advocacy. On graduation and admission to the Bar, Larry immediately began his career as a criminal defense attorney and has since then committed himself to providing dedicated and aggressive representation to his clients.

It is Mr. McCotter’s goal …

  • to provide superb, skilled and dedicated representation to each client;
  • to assure that every client’s rights are vigorously defended; 
  • to thoroughly investigate every client’s case; 
  • to be conscientiously ethical in every aspect of his representation before each client, before other counsel, and before the court; 
  • to seek always what is in his client’s best interest; 
  • to advise each client knowledgeably and honestly; and 
  • to keep each client informed about the progress of his or her case.

 His trial experience includes cases of all levels:

Over nearly twenty years as a lawyer, Larry has defended thousands of defendants in Montgomery, and Harris and many surrounding counties.  He has successfully tried to juries criminal cases of all levels in Texas state and county courts, from class B misdemeanours to first-degree felonies. The first jury Larry ever picked was in an Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child case that resulted in a hung-jury and justly ended in the dismissal of all charges against his client.
