About Me

Laura L. Thompson is a graduate from Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. She was born and raised in Statesboro, GA. She comes to the firm with an energetic and fresh approach to handling the family law and personal injury aspects of the firm. She recently got married and her and her husband moved to Newnan, Georgia where they can be close to some of their family.

Mrs. Thompson’s primary interest is in family law. She deals with adoptions, legitimations, modifications, divorces, custody, and child support issues. If it is a family law issue, she will be more than willing to help out. She also handles wills, estates, probate matters, DUI's, some real estate matters, and personal injury cases.
