Recent Reviews From Previous Clients

  • Bill was successful in providing us with a great outcome.

    “We were referred to Bill by a senior member of law enforcement. As a parent, your worst nightmare is receiving a call that one of your children had found themselves in a situation that could have serious criminal ramifications. Bill was quite willing to accept our case, and immediately set about the task of learning and examining the facts, then having a detailed conversation with us as a group, and independently with our child. Bill walked us through all the implications of his actions, and outlined best and worst case scenarios so that we would be adequately armed with as much information as possible. A lot of that may seem standard fare for some attorney’s, but where Bill absolutely stood apart was the way he engaged us as a family. Granted, we do not have a lot of experience working with attorney’s, but the experience of working with Bill was in large part contradictory to the stereotype. He gave us the feeling that he genuinely cared about our child’s well-being, and we walked away from our initial meeting with an assured feeling that he would do whatever it took to provide us with the best possible outcome. This was a traumatic experience for our child, but through it all, he actually looked up to Bill as not just his attorney, but somewhat of a mentor. This speaks volumes to Bill’s ability to effectively communicate with us, and the level of transparency into the process that he provided. Bill was successful in providing us with a great outcome, and we are extremely grateful for his dedication to the case and his brilliance in the execution of it. We would 100% recommend Bill with no reservations whatsoever. ”

  • I highly recommend him to others and I will continue to do so!

    “I met Mr. Thompson about 4 years ago. I was on probation at the time and I hired him in June 2011 for a reduction of my sentence. (I was sentenced in 2008 for 5 1/2 years Probation, among other things. Mr. Thompson was not my lawyer at the time ) After hiring Mr. Thompson he had a hearing set up with the Judge in October 2011, however I was violated before my court date. He immediately came to speak with me the day I was incarcerated in September of 2011. He kept me up to date with information regarding my case regularly. If I had questions he was able to answer them. For example I was on a certain block while incarcerated. He was able to answer my question. He was also in communication with my mother during that time to keep her up to date as well. He was reasonably priced in comparison to my previous lawyer. He managed to have my sentence reduced by a year and a half with a violation and I was out of jail in 43 days. I have used him in other situations regarding the law after being out of jail in November 2011 and I would use him again. I highly recommend him to others and I will continue to do so. ”

  • We would definitely recommend him to friends!

    “We were referred to Bill by a lawyer who had previously help us with some real estate issues when we were looking for a criminal lawyer. From the first call, Bill was great with communication and keeping us update with information. He explained everything very clearly from the worst case scenario to the most realistic. He made sure every question was answered and did the research when necessary. Overall, Bill took what could have been a huge mess in multiple counties and helped us get a fair and reasonable resolution for everything. Honestly, we hope we never have to call Bill again, but we would definitely recommend him to friends. ”
