Frank M Lario - 1936-08-06

FRANK M. LARIO SR. was born on February 22, 1907 in Pennsylvania to Rocco and Mary Lario. His parents had been born in Italy. Rocco Lario had come to America in 1898, Mary Lario coming in 1906. The Lario’s lived in Pennsylvania, where children Frank and Mary were born. The family came to Camden around 1910, and other children followed. The Lario family was living at 353 Pine Street at the time of the 1920 census. Rocco Lario owned a fruit and produce business in Camden.

Frank M. Lario was a 1930 graduate of the South Jersey Law School in Camden. A gifted artist, he drew several sketches for The Archive, the school yearbook. He graduated with many who went on to careers of note, including Mary Walsh Kobus, Edward V. Martino, and Benjamin Asbell.

After working for Samuel P. Orlando, who would serve as County Prosecutor, he eventually set up his own law practice, which in 1947 was at 709 Market Street in Camden. Success came to him, and in that year he was living with wife Marie on Tavistock Boulevard in Haddonfield NJ.

His brother Anthony M. Lario was also an attorney, and joined his brother in practice after passing the New Jersey Bar. Another brother, Charles Lario, had studied for the bar, but passed away while still attending law school, in January of 1940. In 1954 the Larios represented the American Dental Association in a libel suit. The brothers then had offices at 724 Market Street in Camden. The law firm relocated in the early 1970s to Haddonfield NJ.

Frank M. Lario Sr. passed away in June of 1979.

His son, Frank M. Lario Jr. was appointed as Judge to Superior Court of the State of New Jersey in 1993, by then-governor James M. Florio. Frank Lario Jr. served first in the Civil and Family Divisions of Superior Court in Camden County before joining the Criminal Division in 1997, and was elevated to the Appellate Division in July of 2003.
