Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Kyle A. Morrow

    I endorse this lawyer. Larry Boyd is nothing less than a treasure to the Texas legal community and to the driving public. His monumental Administrative License Revocation Manual is the comprehensive guide for ALR hearings and, more than that, a definitive resource for traffic stop law in Texas. Over the years, Larry has handled many ALR hearings for me and my clients. He has always done an excellent job and often led the way to a successful disposition of the case in chief by creating strategy and adducing helpful testimony at the hearing. I am proud to endorse Larry Boyd as an excellent attorney. Kyle Morrow, Traffic Ticket and Criminal Defense Attorney

  • Willard James Hall Jr.

    I endorse this lawyer. In fact, Lawrence G. Boyd wrote the book for DWI lawyers across the Texas on Driver License Suspension. I keep his Administrative License Revocation Manual near my desk for reference. I have practiced DWI and Criminal Defense law for 35 years in Beaumont, but If I had a close friend or relative in the Dallas area who was charged with Drunk Driving and needed a highly skilled advocate, I would recommend that they contact Lawrence G. Boyd without delay.
