Michael Thompson handled my Disability case with more professionalism and thoroughness than either I or the judge at my trial anticipated. The judge praised him profoundly for how well-written the trial preparation paperwork was. As a result, the trial was over within 15 minutes with a fully favorable decision. After which she again praised Michael's preparation and said she hoped all of her trials were managed as smoothly. Of course there is no guarantee that every client of Michael's will receive a fully favorable decision, but I can testify that every client of his will be represented as well as absolutely possible.

When I came to Michael my life was in turmoil and I was involved in another case which could of jeopardized my L&I Widows Benefits Claim but against all odds and lots of hard work he won my case. Michael and his knowledgeable staff always kept me well informed and always got a quick reply to any questions I had. I can't say enough about how great a lawyer Michael G Thompson is.

We worked on getting a settlement for 1 1/2 years on our own without any success. Michael successfully obtained a settlement without it going to court.

I take it as an honor to tell one and all, (nine to ninety,blind , lazy , lame or crazy), that Mr. Michael Thompson is above reproach in morals and ethics.
Michael Thompson has represented me since 1990 to the present. He has always endevored tirelessly on my behalf and always with success. During this period of time I have had the opportunity to recommend him to other individuals. He has applied his skills and abilities for each and every case with a successful conclusion.
One example of his devotion to his clients came when social security declared me dead instead of a different family member. Mr. Thompson was aware I had a problem before I knew about it and immediately did everything necessary to keep my life running smoothly.
Having said this, I did not and would not hesitate to recommend Michael Thompson to anyone at anytime

Micheal helped my husband and I with an extremely difficult labor lawsuit. It took over 5 years to settle in which time most lawyers would have given up and left us to our means-not Micheal, which is amazing considering he worked on contingency all that time. He fought for us with amazing conpassion and skill. I know we could never have been represented by anyone any better. Michael is not only an excellent lawyer but is also very compassionate with his clients. He makes you feel like a human being again and not just a number in the system. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone to represent you as a human, not just a case to be denied and discarded. I can't say in words how much we appreciate all that he has one for us.

Michael Thompson represented me in a long Workman's Compensation case that was very frustrating and complicated. He tackled each problem diligently and did not allow me to give up hope. He always kept me informed of each new development, of all possible scenarios, and was gracious and courteous to me and my husband at all times. I would never have had a positive outcome without his legal expertise. Now everything is over and because of his excellent legal work we can go forward with our life. I would never have gotten through the ordeal without him.

michael thompson represented me in two different situations. he obtained SSI benefits for me and later L&I benefits. I would not be receiving these benefits without his most capable assistance. He inpressed me as a very knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing such services. In fact I have already done so.

My husband,(who is now deceased) retained Michael Thompson on 1/15/1998 to represent him in a dispute of his workers' compensation claim that he had filed for an injury on 7/11/95. On 7/11/95 my husband was standing on a stool in order to reach the milk dryers at his place of employment(THE STOOL was provided by his employer for that purpose), when it collapsed under him, knocking him to the concrete floor and injurying his right shoulder. From then on he had periods of pain and absences from work. But still continued to work until the night of 3/15/96 which he was pulling a stack of milk(24 gallons) stacked six high in cases onto a track, when he felt a sharp excruciating pain in his right shoulder, which was later diagnosised as a torn right rhomboid muscle. He attempted several times to go back to work,however, was unable to perform his job because of the heavy lifting and so had to finally stop working on 4/19/1996. He was awarded a lump sum settlement of around $25,000, payable monthly and then on 12/8/1997, he received a letter that he was not eligible anymore and payments would stop, and they also wanted him to repay some of the money they had sent him. That is when Michael Thompson was retained and fought for him and won the case and my husband was awarded a monthly payment back to 5/10/1997 until his death in 2003. Since that time I have received this monthly payment which will continue until my death. WITHOUT MICHAEL THOMPSON WE WOULD HAVE NEVER RECEIVED ANY FURTHER COMPENSATION FROM HIS FORMER EMPLOYER OR L&I. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE.
HE IS A VERY HONEST, TRUSTWORTHY PERSON AND I WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL TO HIM.

Michael is an excellent attorney. He has helped us throughout the case understand what is happening and advising us of all possible outcomes. He takes the time to answer our questions in a calm and positive manner. We trust that he is looking out for us and will advise us on making the correct decision for our circumstances. We are thankful that he is helping us through this trying time.
