Excellent representation
A Bankruptcy is a very challenging situation and a difficult personal decision to make. One call to Lisa Thompson and her staff and I knew I was in very capable hands. Great communication with everyone. She is highly skilled and beyond that, so very compassionate. I was guided through the process and felt very comforted all was well and that I would make it through to the other side. Lisa is a highly skilled attorney and a wonderful human being. I recommend her to anyone that needs to take this step.

Amazing Bankruptcy Lawyer!
I was so nervous to claim bankruptcy - it's overwhelming, confusing, and I was worried about the social stigma attached. Both Lisa and Shanna held my hands the whole way, explained each process step by step, and were extremely kind! From beginning to end, they did all the leg work for me, explained all the nuances and realities of bankruptcy, and reassured me that the reality of bankruptcy is not quite as bleak as I had believed. Highly recommend! If you are on the fence about claiming bankruptcy, or are confused and lost as to whom you should trust to represent you during the process, I cannot recommend this team enough!

She was very clear and concise on everything that was needed. Very accessible and answered any questions I had. I would most defiantly recommend for anyone having to file for bankruptcy. She made what could of been a stressful process go smoothly and without any issues.

N/A
I was referred to Ms. Thompson by the Asst. District Attorney for Pima County. She asked several attorneys who they would recommend for filing a bankruptcy suit and four recommended Ms. Thompson. Upon calling her office, I had the pleasure of speaking with her assistant/office manager Shanna. The woman was amazing. She answered all my questions, but more importantly, she put me at ease and did wonders for my psychological state of mind. Shanna did several follow-ups with me and again, was always professional, knowledgable, kind, understanding, and available. I can also say the same for Lisa. Both these women are "outstanding" at what they do. They are a formidable team. My most sincere thanks to them both. The entire process went smoothly with as little emotional stress as possible given the circumstances. I "highly" recommend this law firm.

Awesome!
Lisa and staff represented for a bankruptcy. They were very professional and treated me like a person. During creditor's meeting, I was near the last and heard other people with attorneys and they were train wrecks. Lisa and staff took care of everything and prepped me for this and it went smoothly. Hire them!

Awesome Lawyer!! If you're ever in an unfortunate financial situation, I would so highly recommend Lisa!!
My husband and I had gotten into some financial debt from trying to help others. We had consulted with another lawyer who kept asking for more money up front, kept delaying our case to the point we were now being garnished, and said our plan was going to be at an extremely high rate that we were not going to be able to even afford to file bankruptcy. AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT!!! We got our case handed off to Lisa which was the best thing to ever happen to us in our situation. She PROMPTLY met with us and put us into an affordable plan, stopped the garnishments and harassing phone calls by immediately getting our case filed with the courts. Most lawyers would usually be done with you once your case has been filed but not Lisa. She has gone above and beyond while continuously helping us whenever we need help or guidance. We recently were able to purchase a new home for our expanding family and Lisa was there to help with process of our bankruptcy situation. We consider Lisa not only our lawyer but a true friend with great knowledge. If you ever happen to find yourself in a financial situation or burden we would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Lisa Carol Thompson!!

Your best choice for a highly skilled and professional bankruptcy attorney in Southern Arizona (five stars)
I most highly recommend bankruptcy attorney Lisa C. Thompson. I discovered her book, "Arizona Legal Forms: Debtor-Crediitor Volume Three" when visiting the law library at the University of Arizona campus. When I elected to declare bankruptcy, I chose her firm due to her complete understanding of bankruptcy law in Arizona, and I can say that I made a most excellent choice. Besides her dedication and knowledge, Ms. Thompson turned out to be a wonderful human being who understands the emotional and mental anguish of bankruptcy, and knows how to help you through each (sometimes painful) step of the process with minimal pain and suffering. Her legal guidance, skill, advice and support have been top notch, and I would not ever hesitate to recommend her to anyone in the unfortunate position of bankruptcy. Her legal team and associates are also completely professional and capable, too. My highest recommendation to Thompson Law Group of Tucson, Arizona.

Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful
I hired Lisa Thompson to take care of my bankruptcy after she was recommended by a friend who had nothing but praise for her. She is a very friendly person in general. When I have legal questions, she is able to explain them simply. She seems pretty laid back while in her office(which is nice), yet very professional and super knowledgeable when something needs to get done. I would absolutely recommend her to someone else and would have no issue seeking her help again.

Amazing experience!
Being that this was my first time ever filing for bankruptcy, I was very nervous and was unsure of what to expect. Lisa and her assistant Shanna were absolutely amazing in walking me through the process, explaining everything clearly and answering all my questions. They are experienced and professional. I would highly recommend their service to anyone! Thank you Lisa and Shanna for all you time and hard work! So glad I made the choice in choosing you to work my bankruptcy case!

Supportive, Intelegent & Communicative
Lisa and Shana went above and beyond to help me when I was at my lowest. I have a medically complex young child and we were buried in life saving medical bills and debt - compounded by my inability to work full time. With the walls closing in our us, a trusted source recommended I reach out to Lisa's office. Doing so was a foundational step in my son and I re-building our life and I am FOREVER grateful for Lisa's legal guidance and the kindness and support of Shana.

Lisa is so amazing. She has been an absolute beacon of light in a dark time in our lives. Lisa helped us and held our hands trough each and ever step of the process of filing our Bankruptcy. She has been with us before, during and after the filing. She has helped up understand the process, our rights and options. She keeps us very well informed as to what is going on and what is needed of my wife and I. I highly recommend Lisa without hesitation.

Best lawyer in town
When I started with the bankruptcy I started with a different attorney and he was a total joke he had referred me over to Lisa Thompson and that was the best decision I ever had was to go with Lisa and Shanna and I I have never had the experience that I have had with these two women they will help you with anything and everything they will answer all of your questions they will make this process for you the easiest that you’ll ever have and this is a very scary process for a lot of people let alone a single mom so if you have any reservations on who you should see I would give Lisa and Shanna a call and go in and meet the two of them because again they are the best and they will take their time with you they will ask the questions that need to be asked for you to get everything that you need to have done and done correctly the first time and they will answer your question as many times as you need until you have that that question answered in your head the way you need to have it so again if you’re looking for a great great team to help you with your bankruptcy This is the team that you want so go ahead and do give them a call because they are the women for you.

No need to look further for the best - she is it!
She helped me through the process of my Bankruptcy and continued to keep in contact with me with regards to student loans and other questions that arose. She and her office staff are amazingly kind, very knowledgeable and supportive! She eased my concerns and truly cared about me as a client. I have never met a professional like her who truly goes the extra mile and ensures the best for her clients. I would recommend her to anyone, she is amazing!
