Parental planning
I used Attorney Thompson for a family case. I was more than satisfied with all of the work he put into my case. And the outcome was everything I wanted and hoped it could be! I would surely use him again if the situation came up and would happily recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal or family lawyer.

Attny Dan Thompson did great by me!
I was a little bit reluctant to hire Dan Thompson for a family and probate matter that I needed help with, but a friend had recommended him to me. I must say that he did his homework and guided me to a favorable outcome. I never once felt pushed, he made it very clear that he was working for me and would defend the outcome that I wanted. I felt that he was in control of the situation, he was very kind, and most importantly he was ethical! I would highly recommend Daniel Thompson.

Good experience
Attorney thompson went above and beyond for me. Not only did he spend a lot of time on my case and make sure he knew everything for the trial ! He went to the child care center I was working at, for hours to get me back in after they went to terminate me for the false charges I had on my record. He put in a lot of work and helped me with other court dates also. He was very helpful, smart, and devoted to my case.
