About me

I founded Thompson Law Office PLLC in 2006 because I wanted to work with individual clients and provide high-quality estate planning and administration services in the Nashville area.  At Thompson Law Office PLLC, we help our clients plan for the future and protect what they value, whether it is the financial security of family members or their own independence and financial well-being.  Most goals can be accomplished by means of Wills, trusts and powers of attorney.


Allison aboutWe help clients navigate the Probate Court system after the death of a loved one. We provide a comprehensive and personalized approach to estate planning and administration that allows clients to confidently plan for the future.  Our office is conveniently located on Harding Pike, close to residential neighborhoods of Green Hills, Belle Meade, Hillwood, West Meade and Bellevue. We are happy to make home visits to clients on request.


I have been an estate planning and probate attorney since 1987. In opening my law office in 2006, I saw an opportunity to combine my experience in social work, estate planning, probate and financial planning. I draw on all these experiences in providing a personalized service of planning for my clients’ future financial security and for the financial security of their loved ones.
