EXPERIENCED & SUCCESSFUL REAL ESTATE & BUSINESS ATTORNEY. FREE CONSULTATION.

I grew up in Virginia Beach and graduated from Kempsville High School.  I attended Old Dominion University where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice.   From there I decided to stay at Old Dominion University and work on my Master's Degree in Urban Studies & Planning because I was interested in how government could make people's lives better through adaptive reuse and redevelopment.

 

Upon obtaining my Master's Degree in Urban Studies & Planning I went to work for the City of Williamsburg as a Zoning Officer and helped the city manage a huge growth in real estate development in the late 1990's.

I graduated from the University of Richmond, T.C. Williams School of Law in 2003.  I then had the good fortune of obtaining a year-long Clerkship with the Judges in the Circuit Court of the City of Portsmouth.   It was a great honor to work for such a great court and hard-working staff.  

 

While working at the court I met many attorney's and members of the community and upon completion of my clerkship I entered private practice.

 

The primary focus of my practice has been on real estate and real estate finance issues connected to the financial collapse of mortgage banking industry.   I began representing real estate investors and developers as the economy grew in the mid-2000’s.   When the real estate bubble burst I helped those same individuals stabilize their real estate portfolios.   Since mid-2009 my firm has been at the vanguard of developing the law in Virginia on Loan Modifications and Foreclosure Defense.   I also handle a wide variety of civil matters including insurance matters, personal injury, wills and estates, business law and entity creation.  

 

I believe in a fair and realistic outcome to most legal problems.   You will always get the truth from me- I will not tell you want to hear to take your money.  

 

I have two beautiful children, Truman and Pippa.

Saved my house!
Mr. Thompson saved my house from foreclosure! Not only did he successfully stop the foreclosure, he and his team negotiated with my mortgage company for a loan motification that allowed me to keep my home. It was a stressful situation for me, but Mr. Thompson and his associates were right there with me through the whole process. I can now afford to pay my mortgage and stay in my home. I would recommend him to anyone in the same situation.

Outstanding professionals!!
I was in need of a lawyer to keep my house after an unanticipated financial situation. I had tried doing it through the mortgage lender with no favorable outcome. I had also tried one of the local “specialty” loan modification services, they gladly took over $2700.00 dollars from me, never returned calls, never returned emails, and they did absolutely nothing but put me into a deeper financial situation. From the first consultation with Heath Thompson, throughout the entire litigation and eventuality successful outcome of me being able to keep my house, Heath and his staff removed a heavy burden from my shoulders. They were always reachable by phone or email, providing prompt responses, took their time to explain in layman terms every step of the process, and kept me informed of all pertinent information being exchanged with the mortgage lender.

Home litigation
The law firm of Heath Thompson is excellent! I would and will recommend him to anyone who needs his expertise and I do not say that lightly. I had a huge case and he won my case in Federal Court. This was a very complicated case concerning my home. Heath and his staff worked very hard, beyond what I knew was capable and spent long hours on it. This is a firm that stands by their word and put their client first. If you have a need for a law firm look no further you are in excellent hands with this superior staff! I can never thank them all enough for their hard work and dedication! They are defiantly top notch! They keep in constant contact and you are never left wondering about anything. The honesty level is supreme!

Foreclosure Stopped
Upon my first meeting with Mr. Thompson,I immediately felt comfortable and things would be taken care. He and his staff have been helpful, extremely professional, excellent with communication,as well as taking care of things in a timely manner every step of the way. I needed help with a pending foreclosure with my home. I seeked out the help of Mr. Thompson after having a horrible experience with another firm, receiving uncreditable solicitors and letters. Immediately he and his team took care of things and I was able to keep my home. If anyone seeking legal help,unclear, overwhelmed with a possible or pending foreclosure Mr. Health Thompson and his team are best there is.

Mr. Thompson and his staff saved our home and thus restored our "American dream" and self esteem.
Mr. Thompson took what looked like a lost cause and turned it into a mortgage modification. He listened to us and went to work. It took nearly a year and a half, but Mr. Thompson and his staff were tenacious, professional, honest, and incredible advocates. They walked us through the minefield, made no promises, and delivered. Mr. Thompson came highly recommended by my personal attorney and worked our case from 250 miles away flawlessly. We highly recommend Mr. Thompson and his staff. If you have found yourself in an untenable situation and want to save your home; call Heath!

Pleasantly Surprised, Very Pleased With Outcome
We were unsuccessful several times in our attempts to secure a loan modification, I had become very disillusioned about a positive outcome. During a final act of desperation, I contacted Mr. Thompson. He was professional, empathetic and most importantly, did not make promises that he wasn't able to fulfill. The staff was professional, most notably Ashley. She kept us informed, was always pleasant, and never condescending The staff was responsive, timely and accurate in handling our case. It was a difficult case with a lot of different moving parts including bankruptcy and 3 different changes in loan servicers. I wish I had contacted Mr. Thompson much earlier. After almost immovable resistance from the servicers, the Mr. Thompson was able to secure a modification that included a lower interest rate. Without hesitation, I highly recommend his services. It was truly a game changer that restored our quality of life.

Wonderful
They were perfect for the job. They came highly recommended and I would say the same. My house was in foreclosure and without them I would have not been able to get a loan modification.

They saved my home
The staff was very helpful. They did a lot to save my home for me. I had talked to two other lawyers prior of hiring Mr Thompson, but they would not even take my case. My husband was not paying the mortgage and was not telling me, so I was really surprised when I got the foreclosure notice. Then I found the law firm of Heath Thompson, and they responded quickly whenever I had questions. House mortgage resolved thanks to Mr Thompson and staff.

Highly recommend this law firm to others
Mr Thompson said on our first meeting that he was good at what he does, and he was right! He and his staff are outstanding. With his help I was finally able to obtain a loan modification after 5 years of trying on my own! They are an excellent team and care for their clients. What a relief. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone having an issue with their mortgage company.
