I needed to retain Mark for an unfortunate circumstance regarding a family member. Mark went above and beyond in helping us with all our legal matters.
From a legal standpoint everything was explained clearly to us, and everything turned out as Mr.. Thompson said it would. Actually BETTER than what was expected. Mark clearly told us some of what he would shoot for was a longshot - but he came through for the family.
Mark's legal skills are impeccable, but the thing that impressed me most was his genuine caring for the young individual involved. Mr. Thompson is a credit to his profession, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Mr. Thompson, was honest and knew what he was talking about. Explained exactly what is going to happen from beginning to end dealing with all court procedures. He fought hard and understood what was at stake. He made us feel very comfortable speaking with him, he also returned emails promptly. I would highly recommend him dealing with your case.

I can't recommend Mark Thompson highly enough. I was charged with OWI 2nd Offense, and Mark was able to get it reduced to a first offense with the minimum fine and a weekend diversion program in lieu of jail. He always kept me updated on the status of my case, and he clearly explained all of the possible scenarios and outcomes involving my charges. He always returned my phone calls and emails promptly and made me feel like I was the only person on his caseload. He is VERY reasonably priced too! I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do, I'm calling Mark Thompson.
