Divorce is an emotional rollercoaster. Ms Thomson always remained professional yet empathetic. In getting the job done, she always kept me informed and took the time needed to explain each step (each form, each lawyer lingo abbreviation) in a way that I could understand. Sometimes telling it like it is is a hard pill to swallow but she always had my best interests at heart. Also she advised well. In her field, time is money (your money) and she always tried to maximize efficiency to minimize costs.
Deborah Thomson not only understood the legal ramifications of divorce but also the emotional strains of the divorce process. She was very patient and caring.
Highly Recommended Attorney and Law Firm
Deborah Thomson and her Staff made a difficult situation of setting child custody/time sharing very simple. As a busy business owner and mother, I was nervous about the process and sought out a female attorney. I am thankful I went with this firm as I felt supported 100%. I was kept fully informed throughout the entire process.
Highly Recommended Professional!
Mrs. Thomson represented me through my divorce and I don’t know what I would have done without her! She made what I expected to be a difficult, complicated process easy and seamless. I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect, but she kept me informed every step of the way. She explained everything that was going on and always was very prompt in answering all of my questions. Mrs. Thomson demonstrated a thorough understanding of the law and in strategies that are necessary in dealing with certain situations. She took my worries away and handled everything professionally and diligently. I highly recommend her. Hopefully I will never have another divorce, but I know where I’d go if ever I or anyone I care about needs an attorney.
I am still in court five years after Ms. Thomson represented me during my divorce proceedings. Her lack of basic business skills and detachment from her fiduciary responsibilities has cost me everything. . She failed to show up for a nine hour mediation because she had vacation days. She failed to subpoena documents that are critical to the division of assets in any divorce proceeding. In fact, she did not subpoena any documents at all. My interests were simply not protected in any meaningful way.
Deborah L. Thomson’s response:“The writer of this review was not an actual client of mine. This is a personal attack from someone that I know.
• The writer alleges that I represented her more than five years ago. Five years ago, I was employed by a law firm, and any cases were not my own.
• The court has procedural safeguards to ensure that a case does not drag on for a significant amount of time, and alleging that a case is still going on for over five years is absurd.
• If this was an actual case and was still going on five years after representing a person, my involvement would have been far removed.
• A mediation would not occur if the attorney did not show up. Mediations are not scheduled for a specific amount of time, as indicated in the review.
• I had a different last name at this time, and an actual client would not have referred to me as Ms. Thomson.
Unfortunately, AVVO does not verify the information contained in a negative client review, nor does it verify that a person was, in fact, an actual client, before allowing it to post on an attorney's profile.”
trusworthy good lawyer
From the moment of my fisrt consultation ,she was very upfront with the pros and cons of the case from the financial aspect to the timeline , i felt that i was very inform at all times.
Professional, Reliable & Supportive Family Law Attorney! I Highly Recommend Deborah Thomson!
Deborah Thomson is an exceptional family law attorney. Not only is she an experienced and dedicated advocate on her clients' behalf, but she is intelligent, inventive and dependable. She made my legal issue very manageable and seemingly simple to resolve. Furthermore, I have been able to refer my friends and family to her with confidence, and they have all raved about her professionalism, knowledge and support! I can't thank her enough!
Having gone through a very difficult divorce and child custody battle early in 2001, I would know how hard , first hand the system can be on the entire family. On at least two occasions since the final judgement Debra Thompson has been able to assist us in righting the wrongs that were both "the Systems" failures and not of our own doing. Why was she able to "fix" these horrific injustices? Her passion for doing what is in the best interest of her clients and , more importantly, her absolute knowledge of the law as it pertains to being beneficial to a family. My only regret is that we did not obtain her services initially during the process.
Reliable, Knowledgeable, Professional and a Champion in the court room.
Deborah L. Thomson and the whole staff at the womens law group are great lawyers, I was looking for an attorney in tampa fl, happen to google or yahoo women attorneys, saw website, read it an impressed, I called, free phone consultation to discuss my case, I went to their office, Susan Caudill very polite nice, I had a face to face consultation, which was a 100 bucks, but however that 100 bucks was worth the money, because, I had to see the judge the next day and i could not afford them to represent me at that moment. She needed 5000 dollars for my custody hearing, which is the going price, nothing unheard of. I pretty much done all the work research for my case before I look for and attorney, but for as far as, to continue my case to go far as a victory and to be able to see my son, I needed closing help, she definitly pointed me in the right direction, far as, talking to the judge and getting in a prosition to were, i could afford to hand off the ball (the ball is the promblem of me not seeing my son) to her take over. I did exactly what she told me to do, wrote it down, right there in her office as she was telling me , what I needed to do far as filing paperwork at the courthouse ect, a couple of weeks later, when I had did everything i needed to do from that 100 consultation, I was in a prosition to were she could help me, go to my new custody hearing, I had more then a 100% confidence, everything from whats on there website, profile, they are the truth, no exaggeration, when we went to court, she blew me away, Deborah L. Thomson as any other client of hers would say she is reliable, knowledgeable, professional and a champion in the court room. This was my first time ever hiring a lawyer, but she could easily be the women version of law and order, Executive D.A Jack McCoy, truly focus! Express the point to the judge, which i would not been able to put in words! She won my case, now I have a consistent realationship with my son and full custody of my son and, she won the case in november 2010, I was suppose to had been put my review on here, but it was a major transition with getting my son and him and I adapting, I had time now to write this review, im very pleased, me , my son and his mom are all finally on the same page, thank you women law group!
