Great lawyer
Bob has represented me in two cases and I have been happy with the results in both. He kept me informed, paid attention to all the little details that were important, and basically took care of everything so I could go on with my life. I would recommend Bob without reservation.

Personal Injury Claim
Mr. Thomson recently handled a claim for me relating to injuries I suffered in an automobile accident. He, as well as his assistant, took care of my case in a very professional manner, and I was very pleased with the outcome. I would recommend his office to anyone needing a personal injury lawyer.

My case, Bob's help
I didn't just pick Bob out of the Yellow pages, he was recommended to me by the attorney that prepared our will. I then had by sister-in-law who is also an attorney (practicing law in Maryland) review his web-site. She said he sounded knowledgeable and showed experience in personal injury cases, something I was definitely going to need. My case began with a Sunday morning walk in a quite neighbor just north of Manson in Lake Chelan, Wa. My brother and his wife along with my wife and I were walking along a public road when a large dog approached. His demeanor was not friendly, he was aggressive showing his teeth and lunging at us. With numerous calls to control his dog the approaching owner did nothing. When the dog's attention turn towards my wife, I collected a couple of large rocks and proceeded to through them at the dog. In doing so, I ripped the quad tendon in my right leg, causing extreme pain and injury. After surgery, I was off work for 3 months then an additional 6 months of physical therapy. I know, some might think "you threw the rock - it was your own fault". This was not my view nor was It Bob's. Bob represented me and with his knowledge and expertise we settled with the insurance company for a fair and equitable amount. If you are in need of a personal injury attorney to protect your rights and to represent you in a court of law, Bob would be my first choice.
