    Ernie is a gentleman and a scholar. I originally met Mr. Blomquist when I was an assistant states attorney many years ago. I immediately recognized him as the defense attorney that commands the respect of the judges, prosecutors, police officers and court staff. As we went head to head at trial, I soon realized why he had (has) such an excellent reputation. Now that I am in private practice, we have the privilege of working together defending cases. His legal skills are second to none. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Mr. Blomquist. He has a brilliant legal mind and is one of the best attorneys in the community! You will be in excellent hands with him.

    I have had the pleasure of knowing Ernie for the past 20 years that I have practiced and he has nothing but the highest regard in the legal community. He has been a mentor and a teacher to many younger attorneys and has helped to make the legal profession much better as a result of his efforts. He is respected and revered by his peers for his knowledge of DUI and criminal law. His caring for his clients is unparalleled. I highly recommend him.
