16 months after my divorce, I was faced with addressing a divorce modification. Having been unhappy with my original lawyer, I decided to seek new counsel for my current issue. After meeting and working with Marshall Thompson, it was clear to me that this was in fact a beneficial move for me. Marshall quickly put all of my concerns at ease, and professionally and caringly, guided me thru the process. The quality of counsel is obviously the top priority when retaining an attorney, and Marshall is all of that. But to me the calming way in which he dealt with me and put my mind at ease, was just as important. I would recommend his services, hands down.

I needed to move a divorce proceeding my husband filed in Travis County in Texas to Davidson County in Tennessee. I contacted Thompson by telephone and laid out my case. His filing had the effect I sought. My husband dropped his effort to file in Texas where neither of us lived. It would have been a financial and physical hardship for me to respond to proceedings in Texas rather than Tennessee.

After a long separation - it was time to go through the divorce proceedings with my uncontested divorce. I had a relatively simple case as my ex and I had agreed to most of the terms ahead of time and already had an idea of how we wanted to proceed. Marshall was able to work with me and explain all the pros and cons of my decisions and also brought up a lot that I had no thought about before. It was more tricky when it comes to child shared custody than I thought - especially around things like taxes to which Marshall was very knowledgeable about. Throughout the process he was always professional and prompt and we were able to complete the divorce quickly and without issue.

Marshall is brilliant. Marshall is dedicated to his clients and will work around the clock to ensure success at the courthouse or the mediation table. He is a rare individual that is gifted in verbal, analytical, and mathematical skills. He is at ease with spreadsheets and with presenting his case in a cogent and persuasive manner to the Court. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.
