Great Attorney
I retained Brandy Thompson after being served with a change of custody motion. On the day of the hearing she was there hours early to review my case and prepare me for my hearing. Brandy made me feel like I was not just a paycheck. She sat by me while the other cases were being heard and took notes while the other attorneys sat together away from their clients. She listened like a friend not like an attorney. My case was dismissed thanks to her knowledge of how the law and how the system works. I would call on Brandy Thompson for any legal issues that i at have in the future and would refer her to anyone that ask.

A great choice!
I could not be happier with the help & guidance that I received while working with Brandy & her team! Brandy is thorough & to the point. She listened to my wants, needs & concerns. She was honest & clear with her responses (even when she knew I might not like her answer). I would recommend Brandy & her team to anyone looking for a no nonsense team that has the ability to be sharp, professional & yet compassionate!

CPS Nightmare
Never having any contact with the judicial system, CPS threatening to permanently remove our children from us was quite scary. I hired Brandy to represent us through this process. Brandy was great answering any questions we had. If there was anything that I needed I could call or email her assistant and get an answer right away. I was a little apprehensive about communicating through an assistant and not the attorney directly, however Brandy and her assistant always communicated extremely well. Brandy explained everything to us as we went along and let us know what to expect or not to expect. My favorite thing about Brandy was that she often showed up to the courthouse before we did. I think my wife appreciated this the most. Because she showed up early this helped us stay calm and focused on our case. She helped us get our kids back home as fast as possible. I will definitely recommend her to others and hopefully I never will need her services again but if I do she will be my first call!

Hire Brandy!!
I found Brandy at the 11th hour & she immediately reviewed my case & represented me in an extremely short time frame. She is compassionate & caring & knows family law very well. She was able to get the results our family needed & I would not hesitate to retain her counsel again.

You won't find a better lawyer
I have used Ms. Thompson in a child abuse case through family court as well as for a change of domicile (after the previous case was closed) and I have to say, despite the circumstances, it was great working with Ms. Thompson! She knew what she was talking about, she worked fast, and she made me feel at at ease with the process. I'm not a "court person"; I'm completely lost and uncomfortable and Brandy was patient with me, answered my 50 million questions, and even took the time to answer questions my other relatives had as well. She is well worth her fees and is the first lawyer I will call if I need one again!

Great Experience
Mrs Thompson represented me in an auto accident and I found her to be professional and thorough. She kept me informed on what was going on. I found her advice to be invaluable. The results of the case far surpassed my expectations. I was very satisfied with her abilities.

I have used Brandy for several personal matters and have found her to be very professional. She got the results I was looking for each time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for legal services.

Impressive and Skilled Representation
Brandy impressed me right away with her factual approach to my child custody case. She definitely knows the field well and never sugar coated things for me. I did feel lost many times, since this was all new to me, but looking back I kind of want to kick myself and remind me to trust Brandy. I felt uninformed a few times throughout the process, which was hard for me, but in spite of those moments, I did get great positive results in my case. She proved without a doubt in the end that she knows the system and she's an attorney to be reckoned with. Opposing counsel was actually shaking. My advice to potential clients is to definitely use Brandy for your child custody case, and to trust that she is giving you the best advice for your situation, and providing you the most quality representation you can buy. She is also a very busy professional, but she was always willing to sit down with me and answer my questions if I asked to. If I need further alterations to my custody agreement in the future, I certainly hope that Brandy will represent me again.
