Larry grew up in Springdale, Arkansas and graduated from Springdale High School in 1979.  He then attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and graduated with high honors with a BS in Public Administration.  He then studied at the University Of Arkansas School Of Law and obtained his Juris Doctorate in 1986.

 

Larry  began his legal career working for the firm of Cypert, Crouch, Cark and Harwell in Springdale, Arkansas and thoroughly enjoyed his first four years in a general practice of law there.  However, because he and his wife have always made their home in Rogers, Arkansas, when he was offered a position with Matthews, Campbell & Rhoads in 1989, he gladly accepted. He and Ed McClure were law school friends. He became a partner with the Law Firm in 1994.

 

Larry’s main areas of practice are all forms of family law including divorce, custody, adoptions, guardianships, and mediations. 

 

Larry is a certified mediator with the Arkansas Circuit Courts in civil, domestic relations and probate cases.  He became a certified mediator in 2006 and has successfully mediated hundreds of cases since then.  Whether he is involved in a case as an attorney or as a mediator, Larry attempts to use his dry sense of humor to defuse what can otherwise be a tense situation and uses his gifts of persuasion and conciliation to help people through what is one of the most difficult times of their life.

 

Larry is a skilled trial lawyer and will zealously represent your interests but will keep in mind that the person you are doing battle with is probably the mother or father of your children and hopefully you two will still be able to be at the same table at your kid’s wedding rehearsal dinner.

Excellent care, attention to detail and handled everything professionally
Larry has been fantastic to work with, he’s fun and light hearted and as serious as needed. He advised me extremely well through my divorce proceedings and fought for my rights. I felt extremely safe in his capable hands.

Divorce Settlement Reached
Larry was professional and gave me great advice. He was straightforward with his comments which I appreciated. Divorces are emotional and when I did not take his advice at times because I was not ready, he waited for me to adjust. (Each time he was right but it took me a while to accept.). He was strategic and helped me obtain my divorce in less than 5 months while protecting my non-negotiable items. I would highly recommend him.

Such a great help at a difficult time.
Larry really helped us to accomplish our goal. He was very understanding of what our need and what we were trying to accomplish. He was very forthright with the knowledge in the area and made them easy to understand. Always ready and available for any questions or concerns and always followed up with calls or emails. Not only did he care about getting the right result, but he actually cared and was concerned for us personally. I would recommend him to anyone.

Personal and Effective!
Larry was a great help through his candid, humorous, straight talking approach to educating me on my case not just handling it. He explained the process so I could make informed decisions. He is timely in returning messages and truly exemplifies a client focused relationship. I would highly recommend Larry to anyone looking for an attorney who will not just handle your case, but who will take the time to listen and understand your situation.

Medical power of attorney.
Larry Thompson helped us with a Medical power of attorney for our son during a difficult time in his life. He offered us great wisdom and advised us in what was the best solution to a difficult situation that had come up in our son's life. He was very compassionate and understanding with our son and dealt with him very personally. Larry showed great expertise and his experience in family matters is vast. I would go to him for any of my legal needs that might come up in the future. [info withheld]

Larry J. Thompson "The Greatest"
Larry Thompson helped get me thru a divorce settlement that has been going on for 6 years. Working with him was a pleasure! After hiring him, it only took about 2 months to get this mess cleared up once and for all. It was like being released from a nightmare and being able to get on with my life. I would highly recommend him to any and everyone. You would love his personality as well as his details covering each matter. Thank you again Larry for giving me back my life.
