Review Paul Thomson
  • Beyond my wildest expectations

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Bob

    Beyond my wildest expectations! Mr. Thomson and his staff have changed my opinion of lawyers. I have had negative experiences with lawyers in the past: Not returning calls, never available, unrealistic promises, arrogant attitudes, etc. This certainly was NOT the case here.

    I was hit by an irresponsible driver and my truck, an older truck that I inherited from my late father, was totaled. Though cited as being responsible for the wreck, the other driver provided a false story to his insurance company. The insurance company, even after obtaining the facts, witness statements, police reports, etc was indifferent to my situation. I was paid a pittance for the truck, and I had to undergo back surgery.

    I am from North Carolina's coast, so shopping for a lawyer in the Blue Ridge Mtns wasn't easy and luckily a called a lawyer that,in turn, recommended Paul Thomson. I spoke with Mr. Thomson on the phone and then later in person. He agreed to take the case but made no extraordinary promises other than to represent me fairly and do his best to obtain fair compensation for my injuries and loss. I had really hoped just to get enough to fully restore my dad's old truck. They far exceeded my expectations. The phones were always answered, and with the utmost of courtesy. My calls were always returned promptly if Mr. Thomson was unavailable at the time. Paperwork never lingered on desks or inboxes. I was kept informed every step of the entire ordeal. Mr. Thomson, having once worked for insurance companies, was tenacious in dealing with with both mine, the other driver's and my health insurance. Their office operates like a precision watch.

    Last week Mr. Thomson called to get my opinion on a settlement offer. I was prepared to be disappointed. I certainly wasn't. Yesterday, we picked up my check and I still cannot believe how much more he got for me than what I could ever have dreamed for.

    The Thomson Law Firm will treat you with respect and dignity as if you were family, make no false promises, and provide consistent, professional representation to obtain the compensation you deserve. I will never forget them nor will I ever be able to thank them enough.

    Paul's vast legal knowledge and ability to cut through the red tape and get right to the core issues of my case was amazing! His professionalism and confidence was very apparent in the courtroom and totally put me at ease. Spending time with him has changed my opinion towards the legal system and lawyers.

    During our initial visit in January Mr. Thompson was informed there was no autopsy done on the 5 month old infant. We had not heard from him so we called him in May. Within 2 weeks he contacted us to advise unless we were willing to spend 20,000 to resume the body we had no case.

    Paul Rice Thomson III’s response: “I advised the family that without an autopsy that this would be a very difficult case. I told them that I would gather the medical records and the death certificate and see what could be done. They made representations about a physician looking into the case as well, so I advised that investigation may help as well. Obviously, obtaining the medical records alone was a lengthy process, much less reviewing them. After reviewing the materials, and speaking to an expert, I determined that the case would be extremely difficult to proceed with, and impossible without an autopsy. They were obviously very upset to get this news.”
