Bankruptcy
Independent firm has practiced bankruptcy law since 2009, and has provided services in Chapter 7 (liquidation) both for business and individuals, Chapter 13 (individual debt adjustment) and Chapter 11 (reorganization of business).
Since 2009 we have worked throughout Central Florida in providing bankruptcy help to our clients. We have liquidated large amounts of debt for both individuals and businesses. We have reorganized businesses and have helped these businesses turn their fortunes around. We have represented clients for individual debt reorganizations. We have modified existing mortgages and have stripped second mortgages within the bankruptcy process. We have forced mortgages into modification talks and have seen first hand how much more successful the bankruptcy modification program is than modification at the state level. We have also represented clients in adversary actions, and have helped to end unfair ongoing obligations that our clients have no means of paying.

Our purpose is simple: to give the honest person a fresh start in their business or their personal lives.
Immigration Law
Both business and family based petitions, immigrant and non-immigrant. Have cancelled or dismissed deportation proceedings, have applied for waivers, permanent resident status, and gained labor department approval for foreign workers.
Immigration is an extensive body of law that involves all matters involving international transit. To go through even a partial list is to suggest the complexities involved. Many people only wish to stay for a short time, and need work visas or visitor visas. Many wish to study in the United States. Many who do wish to work have someone willing to sponsor them, but do not know how to get approval of their visa or work authorizations.

Many however wish to stay and wish to invest or work to gain permanent residency status, known unofficially as a "green card". Many others have family members or spouses inside the United States and seek to stay on this basis. Investors may wish to pool their money together and create a "regional center" to marximize their impact.

Whatever the issue, if the issue involves immigration, we are ready and able to assist. Immigration can be notoriously impersonal and our team is happy to take out the guesswork and to provide our clients with the best possible solution. If you face an immigration problem, call us up. We will be happy to help.

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

We help people at some of their most vulnerable moments.

Whether you are seeking help in getting a green card for yourself, or for a family member overseas...whether you are seeking reorganization of your business or liquidation of your debts, the Law Offices of Patrick J. Thompson are available to assist and be at your side through these difficult situations.

What experience or education distinguishes your lawyers from others

Present in the Central Florida area since 2009, the Law Offices of Patrick J. Thompson have worked and gained experience in a wide array of subcategories within immigration and bankruptcy law. We have helped people reorganize their business, we have frozen and reversed garnishments, we have helped cancel removal of aliens, and we have helped people to gain their citizenship and green card. We have helped businesses hire immigrant and non-immigrant workers, and we have helped immigrants and non-immigrants in obtaining relief.

The types of law involved involve a dizzying array of actors. Bankruptcy involves the judge, the interim trustee, the (in 13's) standing trustee, the U.S. Trustee, the IRS, and the various secured and unsecured creditors. Immigration involves the national USCIS, the local USCIS offices, the national and state labor departments, EOIR, and ICE. It takes a lawyer with background with dealing with these various actors in order to determine the best possible options and solutions in any given situation. There is, in short, more than there may appear with any action involving either type of law.

At the Law Offices of Patrick J. Thompson, we are happy to work with the challenges. We will bring the case to court, if necessary. We will not be afraid to either litigate, or to negotiate if prudent. We are prepared to deal with the numerous actors and interests competing claims to provide the best possible solution for our clients.
