I chose Mrs. Danielle Thompson to represent me with my divorce, and custody of my children. She has given me excellent legal counsel, she listened to my situation and told me the step by step process and had kept me up to date with everything. I love her and would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for an excellent attorney.

Excellent lawyer
Danielle has been there for me and my kids. She took my calls at inconvenient hours, listened to my rants, and cared enough to get invested in my situation. I couldn't have asked for more from a lawyer. She worked extremely hard on my case and got the result I wanted...domicile coustody of my kids. We have more to go but I'm confident in her ability to get the rest of this divorce wrapped up with good results. She is professional, brutally honest and caring, just what I needed. I highly recommend her and her firm.

Absolute excellence. Highly, highly recommend.
It is no accident that Mrs. Thompson's reviews are so positive - Mrs. Thompson and her staff are the most professional, responsive, and diligent team you could ever want on your case. One-on-one, she was professional, responsive to all of my questions and concerns, and explained everything I needed to know clearly and concisely. In the courtroom, she is as staunch and as fierce and advocate as you could ask for. She takes no bull, especially from opposing counsel, and is a force to be reckoned with. All around, Mrs. Thompson is absolutely excellent in every stage of representation, and I highly, highly recommend her.

The advocate you NEED
My grandmother came to me after 61 years of marriage asking for my help, disclosing decades of abuse, intimidation and control at the hands of my grandfather. She needed an attorney and I KNEW I had to find the PERFECT advocate for this brave woman who decided to finally break her silence and ultimately find freedom at 77 years old. My search began...I dug through case files, reviews, social media, etc. After a week of research and digging there was no doubt in my mind Mrs. Thompson was the best choice. Fast-forward 6 months into the process and we could not be happier with her firm's service and results. When this woman walks into a room, her presence captures everyone's attention. She is professional, tactful and honestly she has single handedly restored my grandmother's confidence in herself and her joy in life in general. I have overheard, on 2 different occasions, fellow attorneys speaking of Mrs. Thompson in the courthouse hallways and each time, they have expressed respect, admiration and pretty much fear of her "kicking a@# and taking names" persona. EXACTLY the person you want on YOUR side as your advocate. We can never truly express our gratitude to Mrs. Thompson and her firm.

Excellent
If you are fortunate enough for Mrs. Thompson to agree to take your case, you will discover that her impressive technical knowledge of the law is outmatched only by her care for her client’s best interest and more importantly the innocent children stuck in the middle of a relentless legal battle. Money can’t make someone care, but you can hire the right person who will care. I had to let go of my previous counsel for a multitude of reasons. It was a difficult decision however I realized that if I had made this change earlier not only would it have saved me wasted money but may have altered the legal path all together. Mrs. Thompson discussed options with me that I never knew existed. This is where the technical knowledge of the law and the willingness to care for your clients merge. I am still learning from her and although the legal process is painful and risky, I learned by comparison that I am in very good hands. That’s what you would buy if you could. Mrs. Thompson was recommended to me by another attorney who opposed her in court previously and lost. He recommended only 3 attorneys from Lake Charles to Baton Rouge. Mrs. Thompson was first on his list. Make your short list carefully and retain her if you can.

Divorce/Custody
Mrs. Thompson has been a life saver! I hired her hesitant to do so because I had it in my mind that this divorce/custody would be cordial and easy but that was not the case. She listened to me at the beginning and respected my request and decisions and when I finally realized I needed to fight she was there ready and made me feel less stressed and guided me in a way that helped ease the stress through this draining process. Her and her staff are amazing and turn around time for phone calls, emails and filing were in reasonable time. I would recommended her to EVERYONE! Thanks again Mrs. Thompson for EVERYTHING!

Fantastic!!
I highly recommend Mrs. Thompson! She represented me for my divorce and I am very happy that I chose her. She is extremely confidant, to the point and does her job well. She listened to me and helped me understand the legal terms that I didn’t understand. She fought (and won) for me to get the things that I wanted and deserved from my marriage. I truly appreciate everything she and her team have done for me!

Child Custody
I was Terrified, a typical worried single mom. After 5 Years, my son's father shows up trying to take custody of the little boy i have raised his entire life. I was having panic attacks, to the point where my health succumbed to the stress. Danielle and her team ALWAYS ensured that everything was going to be okay. They sent me every single piece of paperwork that was filed, to keep me in the loop. They answered the phone every single time i called with panic in my voice (or any type of evidence i have discovered) They literally did everything in their power to make sure i was comfortable and calm when i called in total panic. In the end, we didn't even have a trial. Danielle Owned the court room and stood up for me like no other person would and i couldn't be happier with my choice of an attorney. Not only did my attorney show up, her entire team showed up to make sure every single thing was covered. Danielle and her team were literally a blessing to me.

I felt protected the minute I met Mrs. Thompson.
After my 30 year marriage fell apart I had no idea what to do much less how to get a divorce. Confused and scared about my rights , Mrs Thompson and her staff made me fell protected the minute I walked into their office. If you have to defend your honor, you character, if you have to fight for your spousal support you need Mrs Thompson and Mr Bursavich in your corner!! From day one they protected me, they made sure I understood my rights throughout the entire process. Oh and FYI Mrs Thompson is a beast in the court room!!!! If you are thinking about choosing Mrs. Thompson to be your lawyer don't wait any longer hire her today!!!!!

Danielle Thompson and Paul deMahy
Totally awesome law firm - Danielle is totally on point and very honest and doesn't hold back - she will tell you exactly what to expect - even if that is not what you want to hear. She and Mr. Paul have helped us and still are helping us through a very difficult situation regarding business and personal money that was lost and/or taken from us. We are still working through it and getting it done a little at a time - thanks to these two awesome people. They are never too busy to call back or have a visit.

Professional, Trustworthy and Has your back Like Nobody Else
Danielle Thompson and The Thompson Law Office, LLC stood by my side through the toughest times, literally taking all the stress off of my back. I was more than pleased with Mrs Thompson and her legal staff including Attny George Bursavich. Mrs. Thompson, Attny George Bursavich and the staffs professional mannerism, as well as Respectfulness was outstanding. Thoroughly making sure each Document has the I's dotted and the T's crossed is something very important when handling legal documentation. These guys are definitely an A+ Firm . I would Def Recommend them.

Best in town
If you want an attorney that goes to bat for you, ms Thompson is the one. I'm currently going through what can be described as a messy divorce and custody battle where my soon to be ex-wife has used our son against me. Awaiting the mitigation she has refused to let me see my son, dictated when/what time of day I'm allowed to ask about him and on several occasions made it clear that she will do anything in her power for me to get limited custody rights. Through the entire process, Ms Thompson has genuinely listened, given advice, and done everything in her power to help. My best advice is to listen to her, she knows what she is talking about, and her experience shows. Ms Thompsons knowledge, expertise and passion for her clients came to show during my mitigation. Despite allegations from my ex and everything her attorney attempted to use against me to limit my custody rights, ms Thompson sat a stop to it, and I walked out feeling like I won. I was awarded more time with my son than what I thought I would get walking into the meeting It really upset my ex-wife, which made it even better. Ms Thompson will have your back and she has definitively exceeded my expectations through this process. I highly recommend her services and expertise.

Awesome Team
Thus far Mrs Thompson and her team is one in a million. I had lawyers in the past that are just not working for you even though you pay them. Mrs Thompson team works for you from start to finish from the secretary to the paralegal to the associates and to her. Caring considerate I cannot day enough.

Awesome Personal Injury Attorney
Mrs. Thompson was my personal injury lawyer! She went over and beyond to get me the money I deserved! After being hit by a car (T-boned), the insurance company did not offer me very much. That’s when I called Danielle Thompson! Best decision ever. She fought for me and to say I was satisfied with the results is a understatement. I could not believe what she was able to do! When she says she will fight for you, she means it! I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that is need of an attorney. She’s honest, trustworthy and made herself available to answer all of my questions. If you are looking for an aggressive attorney that won’t give up, she is the one!
