How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Ms. Thompson strives to not only advocate zealously, but to counsel with empathy and to help families and children go from just surviving to THRIVING during and after the trauma of divorce, abuse, or contact with child protection.

As a second-career attorney, Ms. Thompson graduated law school early and with the same legal education as her peers, but a broader background to draw from when applying that education. Her personal mission is most affected by having lived in various cultural environments across the U.S. and by having survived domestic abuse.
