Client
I hired Larry and not once did I regret it. Larry was knowledgeable, professional and quick to respond any time I had questions. I went into the situation completely blind and not knowing what to expect. He not only handled the legal aspect beyond my expectations, he kept me calm and in control in the process. I couldn’t have been more pleased-well worth the expense.

"Pro"
Larry Dean Bloomquist was a beacon of hope to my mom and me at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to defend us from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and for my mom. My mom and I are eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Larry without reservation. Larry Dean Bloomquist is your Lawyer

Consulted with Mr. Bloomquist on many criminal cases. He is the pre eminent criminal defense attorney in Central Texas. He has over 100 jury trials under his belt and a lifetime of experience to help any person in need. Highly recommend.

Larry came through for me, every step of the way.
Larry handled my case from the moment it was handed off by Texas Law Shield to a local lawyer (him). He explained the process we would likely go through, he was clear about what was going to happen each time we had to go to court. He presented the DA's offer fairly but was clear that he felt my case was one we could make at trial if we had to. The DA's office dragged it out over fully three years, before finally dropping all charges when they realized they had no case (something Larry had spelt out to them time and again) the day it would have gone to trial. Larry answered my questions, made sure he knew me, knew what had occurred and did his level best to have the DA's office actually look at the evidence and why there was no question we'd be asserting self-defence and almost certainly convincing a jury of it (you can never be *quite* sure of those juries ..). In short, if I had to go through it all again, god forbid, I would want Larry there for me.

Very thorough, honest Attorney!
He did everything he promised on my case and went above and beyond even after it was through. On top of quality, he did all he did for me as a court appointed attorney. Most court appointed attorneys don’t care but he truly did everything he could.

A True Professional
I have used Attorney Larry Bloomquist through Texas Law Shield as well as personally. He is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. He takes care of our Security Company and our Officers like they are personal friends, not just clients.

Wow!
Larry really came through for my son and got him the best possible outcome for his troubles. He even did a fabulous job keeping this mama bear semi calm throughout the whole process. He will get you where you need to be. Couldn't have asked for a better lawyer!

Got it Dropped!
The man knows what he's doing. He's patient if you are completely unknowledgeable about how the justice system works (me). He'll take the time to answer your questions, however naïve they may be. He got my class A misdemeanor case dropped and did it like a pro. I couldn't be happier with my experience.

Self Defense
I Immediately got in touch with the Texas Law Shield ( United States Law Shield ), and they gave me great advice. I met Larry under those circumstances. We met and I explained my situation. He made me feel at ease because he believed my story. He explained what was going to happen. I felt like he was my friend. He had great Detectives that I met, and hired. They were amazing, and I fell like Larry set up an awesome team. It lasted a long time, but we won; therefore, Larry rallied a group of smart, determined people that really cared for me. Thanks Larry. I will always be grateful.

Mr. Bloomquist marvelously defended me against wrongful accusations
Larry Dean Bloomquist is an amazing attorney! I was being falsely accused for something I did not do. During the whole ordeal, Mr. Bloomquist made me feel very at ease and calm with the situation. I was extremely anxious but during the consultation, he listened to me and thoroughly examined the evidence I had. He did not let the DA keep postponing my court date and was able to get the charges dismissed/dropped. I would highly recommend Mr. Bloomquist! He’s the type of lawyer you want on your side!

I was falsely accused but Mr. Bloomquist got my case dismissed!
After being served with paperwork for something I was falsely accused of, I was a nervous wreck! I was so worried and anxious since I had never been charged with anything before. But after that first phone conversation with Mr. Bloomquist, I was immediately put as ease. His 20+ years of knowledge and experience really speaks for itself! He did not let the DA office continue to postpone the court hearing and after indicating to them that the evidence we had supported my innocence and confirmed I was falsely accused, the charges were dropped! I am beyond grateful to have an amazing attorney represent me and thankful that Mr. Bloomquist was able to get the charges dismissed. If you are needing a criminal defense attorney, my recommendation is ONLY Mr. Bloomquist!

Unlawful Carry
Mr Bloomquist saved the day for me. I hired him in November to handle my case for unlawful carry, he came very highly recommended and he held up to his reputation. He worked very hard for me in helping understand my situation and was on point thru my whole ordeal. He had my case dismissed and I feel very confident in referring him to anyone who needs legal representation. Thank you very much Larry.

Reputation and Knowledge of the Law is Critical!
Look no further! Larry is the Lawyer you need! We have never had legal issues before and knew nothing about the legal defense process. Larry was methodical, understanding and guided us every step of the way. I have learned a lot about criminal defense and criminal defense lawyers throughout this whole ordeal and have concluded that what to look for in a lawyer is not only his understanding of the law, but more importantly, the reputation and relationships they have built within the local legal community. Larry has that experience and local reputation that is a must to ensure the absolute best outcome from any legal challenge that you may find yourself in. Thank you for everything Larry!
