Hammond, Larry A.

Larry has spent over 25 years practicing in the private sector, but regards his two tours with the Department of Justice as among his most satisfying professional experiences. He served as an Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor in 1973-74 and then returned to Justice during the Carter Administration where he worked in the Office of Legal Counsel as the First Deputy Assistant Attorney General under both Attorneys General Griffin Bell and Ben Civiletti.
