I hired Alison at Thompson Law LLC to help me with my divorce court filings and proceedings. From the first time we met I knew I would be well supported by Alison and her team. They were very informative on items that required review by me and made sure I understood every part of the process. Deadlines for documents and questions I would pose were always very quickly turned around and often clarified things I had not even thought about. Alison brought integrity and care to my case that was a great support to me and I could not have been happier with their services. I would recommend Thompson Law for their dedication to clients specific needs, attention to detail, integrity and experience. The whole team is kind and pleasant to work with and truly made my difficult transition, easier. Thank you for all your efforts. Nicholas

Targeted help when I needed it most
I met Alison Thompson in a workshop for women either considering or in the process of divorce. Her part of the presentation was informative and smart, and when I needed an attorney to look over my documents, she immediately came to mind. My request was time-limited and specific. I did not need a lot of legal bells and whistles. Alison's advice was targeted and applicable to my situation. In short, she helped me tremendously for the small amount of work it probably was for her. I know that if I ever do need a full suite of legal services that Alison will be the first call I make.

Kind counsel
I am currently represented by Alison and after working with her for several months am surprised there aren't more reviews. I have a high-conflict custody case and have found her to be incredibly thoughtful and thorough in all her communication. She thinks creatively about potential solutions, and has a kind of smart confidence I trust. Most importantly, I feel cared for which means a lot in the context of such an intensely personal and sensitive time. I can't recommend her highly enough.
