A great Job and a caring attorney
Mr. Thompson did a great job setting up my mothers trust and her will. He answered all our questions and took great care to ensure that everything was set up the way my mother wanted and was what she needed. I highly recommend Brett.

Hard conversations made easy
We have a small child so it was time to get our financial house in order. Brett made the process pain free and easy. Very fast, responsive to emails and phone calls. Pleasant. Easy to work with. Highly recommend.

A Knowledgeable, Caring Attorney
Mr. Thompson actually drafted documents and provided much needed advice to my mother who is in her eighties and was having to care for my father at home. I took her to our meetings with Mr. Thompson and all of our concerns and questions were answered in a timely manner. My sister also met with him after our mother fell ill and he helped us through a very difficult time with our parents.We always felt he was doing everything possible for our situation

Great Job Attorney Thompson
Attorney Thompson got my dad on medicaid and helped us save my parents house. We were beating our heads against the wall with medicaid and Attorney Thompson helped make things less stressful and did what he said he would. I trust and endorse Attorney Thompson and would recommend him if your mom or dad needs medicaid and can't get it.
