Attorney Larry Bloomquist
It has always been about protecting people defending them from the bad
things. When I was growing up I always wanted to be an Army Officer and
have a chance to defend my country that I love very much. I went to college
on an Army scholarship, and became an Army officer. I spent eight exciting
years traveling the world and leading soldiers in Humanitarian and Peacekeeping
Operations. I helped to protect South Korea, from invasion. I worked in
refugee camps in Cuba so that people could come to America and find freedom.
I worked in Croatia and Bosnia after the war there to ensure that there
would be peace so that they could rebuild their country.
Then I went to Law school and became an Attorney so I could help people.
I became a Prosecutor and for another exiting eight years defended my
community from murderers, gangs, and sexual predators. I fought in the
court rooms and argued to juries, that those that chose to hurt others
be prevented from doing so. I took on a street gang that terrorized my
city and sent almost every one of them to prison. I fought to imprison
parents that killed their little children. In case after case I sought
justice for kids that had been molested and protected them.
Over time I realized that the criminal justice system sometimes caught
innocent people and tried to put them in prison for crimes they did not
commit or tried to punish the guilty beyond all reason and without compassion.
Those people need my protection and help, more so because they face the
overall power of the state. So now I defend people charged with crimes.
I have argued to a jury to defend a young man who shoot his friend and
self-defense and freed him. I convinced prosecutors that a young girl
was innocent of cutting her roommate with a knife and freed her as well.
I have convinced judges to help people get treatment for their additions
rather than send them to prison for possession of drugs.
I defend gun owners and protect their rights to own and carry firearms.
I travel the state to protect those that act in self-defense and educate
gun owners on their rights and responsibilities.
I know you come here because you or a loved one are in trouble and need
help. I am here to do so. I will defend your life.
