Writers LifelineLarry Thompson, author of The Trial, began his legal career at age twenty-three and successfully tried seven district court cases before his twenty-fourth birthday. Early in his career as a trial lawyer he would often try fifteen or twenty cases in a year. Now he has tried over three hundred cases with a success rate exceeding ninety percent. He has been named a "Texas Super Lawyer" by Texas Monthly Magazine for 2005.

Larry successfully raised three children who now live in Corpus Christi, Boca Raton and Vail. He and his wife, Vicki, and her daughter, live on three acres in Northwest Houston along with an assortment of horses, dogs, cats, squirrels, raccoons, possums and an occasional skunk. He ran marathons for thirty years until his knees told him it was time to retire to the gym. He golfs badly, SCUBA dives and loves the outdoors, particularly the mountains. He just published his first novel, So Help Me God. Having discovered that modern technology permits a virtual law office almost anywhere, he spends time in the summers in Vail where he manages his lawsuits by email and telephone and works on his next novel (to be published in 2006).
