Jennifer Thompson investigated Child Abuse done to two young children in our family. Facts and evidence pointed to perpetrator. Along with other attorneys Ms. Thompson worked hard to provide certainty and reassurance of justice for those children.
Thank you for your professionalism and endless hours of investigation!

I was accused of a crime I did not commit . After a year of local lawyers I was getting no where fast . I looked up best lawyers in TN on AVVO. That's when I found Jennifer . She was very knowledgeable and answered every question we had . Thru every stage of our case Jennifer and her assistant Erin were there . They were always timely with phone call and emails. Once we went to court and I seen Jennifer in action . I was blown away at her ability to break apart the forensic interview. She is a very aggressive lawyer. Had it not been for Jennifer I would have been in jail and would have lost my family.

She is excellent at what she does, and is very knowledgeable. If she had not gotten our case when she did my husband would probably be in jail, over a crime he did not commit. After every court day she would explain everything to me and my husband. If we ever had any questions we could always call and ask her or Erin. I am so grateful for everything she has done for me and my family. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a lawyer.
