Worth EVERY penny! She saved my home, family and time. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED!
I was charged with Child Endangerment, albeit, completely unintentional, which could of have been 1 year in prison :(! Of course I read her previous reviews and story and figured her the best choice! I was RIGHT! She listened to my story and she could more than relate to it. She had been through the same rough waters only worse. Glad I didn't have anything else going on that would of complicated my case. On the trial set date she was already at work before I arrived. She popped in the Court room briefly to tell me she was going to find "A different DA", guess the first one wasn't being flexible? That's when I realized she was already there ;). By the time the Judge finally got seated, explained what was going on to the room and called for the 3rd person (I was 14th in line), She walked into the room and motioned me up front. She then presented the good news! 1st good news, I was free from prosecution! 2nd good news (kinda the same as the first) not going back to court! 3rd goodish news, the other DA cut an acceptable deal of 2yrs good behavior and no more problems of this type or they bring it back up. At which point I signed the piece of paper and was 4th in line! :D All that was left after that was "Fee's" bill wasn't that bad either. After that I went to get new tires on my car and was back home by 10:30 am lol. All the details aside. She didn't waste any time at all! Had no intention of making the case drag out and just got down to business to clear my name! Now I get to live in the home me and mine are in the middle purchasing and can continue to raise my 4 boy's (minus the chaos that lead up to all this of course :)) THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! I hope I don't need your services in the future; however, If I do you will be the FIRST person I call!

Rebecca is one of the best I’ve seen in all my dealings with lawyers in the past 10 years. She did in a week what I had been trying to get accomplished for almost 7 years. Today I’m a free man with no felony charges when the odds were originally stacked against me. She is honestly the most fair and hard working attorney I’ve ever met and more than reasonable when it comes her rates. If you need legal council at all you can’t go wrong with her! Rebecca if you read this thanks again for all your help I’m back home with my babies thanks to you!!

Will Fight for YOU!
I was accused by my deceased grandfather's family of taking advantage of my grandmother as her health was failing. I hired Rebecca to be a mediator between the authorities, grandfather's family and myself. She was able to get it completely squashed. This was the second time my family used Rebecca. She represented my brother-in-law after my mother falsely accused him of molesting my niece. She was able to get a not guilty verdict for him. She will fight for you, there is no questioning that!

Fighting the good fight
I'd have to say that Rebecca is an outstanding lawyer with a good heart. When talking about lawyers thats a rarity. I've hired her for criminal and divorce and both cases she exceeded my expectations and I can honestly say that I'd consider her a friend rather than a lawyer I hired to navigate the court system for me. She showed a real interest in mine and my families life and she doesn't make you feel like she's better than you. She's a sand up 100% good gal. I'm sure she'll see this so thank you Rebecca!!!

Mrs. Thomason is through
So far she has been tenacious with assisting in my bond reduction that assisted in getting me out of jail, she is knowledgeable, and cares for her clients. She ensures that you are informed and listens to and answers your questions in layman's terms making what can be for some people a confusing legal system. She is very informative in every part of the process of the bond hearing and astute in quickly letting me know things that came up. As a criminal defense lawyer, you could not ask to have anyone better on your side. Strong, intelligent a fighter. She will get you cleared or a good deal. I would recommend Rebecca Green Thomason to anyone who may need a good lawyer.

Hands down! THE best lawyer around!!!!
It's taken more than 2 years and a LOT of tears, but we didn't give up and she didn't give up on us!!!! She stuck by us every step of the way! She was reassuring and compassionate and I would give her an infinite amount of stars if I could!!!! No amount of Thanks would ever be enough to repay her!!! We love Rebecca and so will you!

Trustworthy, Hardworking, Loyal Attorney!
Rebecca Green Thomason stood by my side for 2 years. She devoted her time to my case. I was facing 10 years in prison for chemical endangerment of a child and with Rebacca's help I ended up with 5 years probation. I became frustrated at times throughout the last two years due to my case taking so long to settle but Rebecca continued to reassure me that time was on our side and she was right! She will fight for what is right! Although I was and am guilty of my charge Rebecca fought for what is right and continued to show them the progress I was making in life and how I wasn't the same person. I would highly reccomend her to anyone!

My family has used Rebecca for several years. I would recommend her for any case in Franklin County Alabama or nearby counties. Cases were family estate settlement, arson, burgulary, possession of controlled substance.
