    • I recommend Mervyn Thompson.

    We highly recommend Merv Thompson. We were very impressed with him in our first meeting. He is personable and very knowledgeable. He helped us solve a nasty dispute with a remodeling contractor that had been going on for over two years. We had a lot of material to present to him regarding our problem and he listened intently. He gave us several options and told us what to expect. We hired him on the spot. He kept us informed of progress along the way and made sure we knew what our charges were at every step. The problem was resolved in just over three weeks. We would use him again with no reservations.

    • I recommend Mervyn Thompson.

    I have been a business owner in Skagit County for about 25 years. Periodically, a situation presents itself that requires legal advice. I have always received timely and solid advice from Mr. Thompson. For me, what I value most is his ability to advise me on how to prevent a small problem from escalating into a larger problem which could easily end up in litigation. After using his services off and on for at least 20 years, I would not hesitate to recommend him.

    • I recommend Mervyn Thompson.

    My husband and I sought advice for mortgage issues and Merv was very honest and knowledgeable about our situation. He offered to help, but said we could save money and explained how to do it ourselves. He referred us to another attorney who was able to answer our questions and specialized in our situation. Merv's consultation cost was reasonable and affordable.

    • I recommend Mervyn Thompson.
    • I hired Mervyn more than 3 years ago.
    • Mervyn handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was very suprised to read the previous review of Merv Thompson and wanted to put in my 2 cents. I've used this lawyer for many years. He has successfully litigated a lawsuit and negotiated 2 real estate purchases for me and has given me good advice on a wide variety of issues. I have recommended him to friends who have also been happy with him. He is a terrific lawyer. It's too bad that someone can ANONYMOUSLY trash his good name on the internet.

  7. Terrible lawyer! Use at your own risk!

    • I do not recommend Mervyn Thompson.
    • I hired Mervyn more than 3 years ago.
    • Mervyn handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    We used this lawyer to settle a land dispute and we would have been better off having a wet noodle represent us! He was totally worthless. He talked us into arbitration which was a bad idea. He also did not inform us that the arbitration decision could be contested. He looks the part of a lawyer, but he did a great disservice to us.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This was a binding arbitration (ruling can't be contested) between parties that strongly disliked each other. The arbitrator found a middle ground - which is often the case. Neither party was happy with the result - which is also often the case. I thought that the result was reasonable. These clients obviously did not.
