Moving to divorce is a tremendous decision. Choosing the best attorney to represent you is another. Those of us who are divorced understand the importance of having a steadfast and reliable attorney to help navigate the emotional and legal shock of ending a marriage. Having endured that process, I can unconditionally and confidently say that family law attorneys don’t come any better than Mrs. Deborah Thomson.
Throughout the process, Mrs. Thomson was genuinely involved with my case. She was timely, responsive and sensitive to my needs. For me, what truly set her above her peers was her ability to help me manage my expectations DESPITE my emotional state. Her expert knowledge and experience in family law made me very comfortable with her legal advice. Although truly representing you, Mrs. Thomson will not tell you what you wish to hear but instead competently guides you to reach a settlement that is genuinely in your best interest. BY NO MEANS does this mean that she settles. I personally witnessed her fierce, yet professional tenacity in my defense and her adamant refusal to allow me to accept less. She simply wouldn’t allow it. Forthright, honest and compassionate, Mrs. Thomson is a pillar of her profession.
Just as impressive is her paralegal Mrs. Susan Caudill. Mrs. Caudill was absolutely a joy to work with throughout. Mrs. Caudill is the epitome of responsiveness, organization and compassion. Her understanding and patience with me created a sense of calm that made me feel welcomed and supported. Priceless!
Is there life after the pain of divorce…yes…and it begins with Mrs. Deborah Thomson and the Women’s Law Group.

I have had Deborah Thomson represent me in a divorce recently. She was professional, timely, articulate and supportive of me through the process. My ex-husband's lawyer tried to drag out the scheduling of the final case hearing, and Deborah and her staff (equally professional and detail-oriented) quickly communicated with the other office that it was not acceptable, and ensured that the originally scheduled case hearing was kept.
I would highly recommend Deborah Thomson and her office as a lawyer.

Debbie was a fantastic lawyer during this very difficult time of my life. She not only was professional but very emotionally supportive. I would highly recommend Debbie to anyone needing a lawyer!

It appears to me that this lawyer is a fighter. In my humble opinion, fight is what you want in a lawyer. Some folks think wisdom and experience is what they want in a lawyer. I personally believe that how hard a person is willing to fight for you is the primary concern for the legal consumer. She appears to be a person that does not back down based upon my online research concerning AVVO. Although there are other reasons to hire this lawyer that alone compels me to strongly urge you hire this lawyer. I don't endorse lawyers to improve AVVO ratings.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have had the opportunity to work against Ms. Thomson on a number of cases as an opposing counsel. She is one of the most knowledgeable and well versed attorneys I have ever met. She is a thorough and a zealous advocate, while still maintaining a professional demeanor and a hunger to win her cases. I whole heartedly recommend Ms. Thomson.
