Excellent Firm with Top Notch Attorneys and Paralegals
This firm has the best personal injury attorneys in Dallas. I was in a car accident in 2019. I had a very tricky case because I was injured, but my car was not. Matthew Sercely is the nicest most hard working attorney in Dallas . He gave me realistic expectations and went over and above to help me get the best settlement. Thus firm really cares about their clients and it shows in all aspects of their office. Sarah Curl Larson the paralegal was so kind in sending reminders and getting back to me when I had questions. Look no further when you are looking for a quality firm with high standards. They settled my case and I am pleased with the outcome. Thank you Thompson Law!!

Perfection!
From day one, everyone at Thompson Law was welcoming and expressed that they could most definitely help us after a car wreck where the other driver ran a red light. I had never been in a situation like this before in my life and they made it look and seem so easy! Raquel was extremely gracious and was always there with an answer to any question I had or any explanation if I needed one. Juanita Ayala was a superstar! She went literally out of her way to fix a situation that came up and was so sensitive to my case. She was more than attentive, pleasant to deal with, and she went above and beyond to make sure I understood anything and everything that happened or what could happen. She deserves all the accolades in the world. I would recommend Thompson Law to anyone who needed a law firm. Thank you guys very much!

Best Firm
I wanted to let everyone know how great Thompson Law firm is. In June 2020 I was hit by an 18-wheeler and instantly knew I needed to get legal help. I chose Thompson Law because I knew they would go head-to-head with these commercial vehicles plus the experience they had with dealing with these insurance companies. I needed someone who would be tough and fight to get me the best medical treatment and settlement outcome. Once I called Thompson Law, they promptly set me up to get the medical treatment that I needed. I was in severe pain from my neck, lower back, both arms and both legs. Thankfully, Thompson Law would assure me that I was not alone and communicated with me on every step and explained the process to me, so I knew what to expect. My Attorney was Scott. He was great and always answered my questions when I had them. Adam was my treatment paralegal, and he would call or text me to see how my treatment was going or just to check in to see how I was feeling. Once my treatment was over my case was given to Raquel who fought for me to make sure I received a great outcome. She is absolutely gifted at making sure you get top dollar on your case. She was determined and resilient when it came to going after these huge insurance companies. Finally, I had Juanita who helped get my bills reduced. She was amazing. Constantly kept in communication with me and I very much appreciated it. Everyone at Thompson Law I spoke to was very compassionate and truly cared for you. Ryan El León Thompson has a great team working with him and they will get you the money you deserve I know because they did that for me. I trusted them and I am so happy with everything they did for me. I had family members and friends who spoke highly of them, and they were right. I will also do the same. I will recommend this firm to anyone. They are here when you need them, call them 1-800-lion-law. Thompson Law thank you.

Above and beyond.
I can not sing enough praises to the Thompson Lawfirm. From start to finish and everyone in between.I reached out to a truly amazing guy named Daniel Guzman who gathered my information and assured me they would do their best to help me.I appreciate Scott Koelker and all the time he spent making sure I was represented in the most distinguished fashion. I started treatment and Mr Adam Lippman was with me keeping me updated and always concerned and asking how my care was going. He made sure to always keep me in the loop through the process always letting me know they were diligently working for me. Raquel Aguilar was a rockstar and fought tooth and nail to make sure I taken care of in dealing with the insurance company sue put all her experience into putting my case over the top.I am truly in awe of the work she put in on my case. I also want to thank Juanita Ayala who also put in her expertise and made sure to add her professionalism to finish the process so strong. I would strongly recommend this group of experts to handle your case for the best possible results you can hope to get. I will forever be grateful to Thompson Law.

Great firm
I just wanted the world to know what a Pleasure it was to have the Thompson Law Firm handle Trip and Fall case from back in 2019. I was turned away by ( 2 ) big name Firms in the Dallas/ Ft Worth area who always advertise how they're willing to take any case on but obviously aren't willing too. After being told by other firms that there was nothing anyone could do to help me I decided on calling the Thompson Law Firm who was more than willing to take my case and fight for me. I now see why they're the top Firm in the Dallas area if not the entire State of Texas. SPECIAL Thanks to Javier who opened my case and the Entire legal staff who worked on my behalf ( Attorney Scott Koelker , Raquel Aguilar,  Juanita Ayala, Ect, Ect  ) to get me the Great settlement.  AMAZING !!  results is what you're going to get by putting your Trust & Faith in Ryan The Lion Thompson and his entire experienced legal staff. Thank you again.

Top of the line Law Firm
I just want to say that Thompson Law Lawyers do what they say they are going to do. We had a different law firm TRY to handle this simple case for 9 months. They could not do what the Thompson Law Lawyers did in 3 months. Staff is awesome and when they say they are on top of it, they are. From day one until the end. I can not tell you how reassuring Juanita was. Even willing to go that extra mile, and give us any updates even on her day off. Juanita is a very professional and is very attentive to her clients needs. Very pleasant to speak with and email with, and we have had the pleasure of working with her team and her. I will recommend and will use Thompson Law Group for any future needs.

Honest review
I’d like to thank Thompson Law for everything they have done for me. They have been very supportive and have been with me every step of the way until my case settled. My case manager Raquel always kept in contact with me explaining what was going on with my case. Juanita my closing legal assistant went above and beyond to assist in the final process of my case. I recommend El Leon Ryan Thompson and Thompson Law firm to anyone that has been injured. Don’t wait get taken care of by a firm that truly cares for you. Thank you Thompson Law for everything and getting me the money that I deserved.
