STATE CRIMINAL DEFENSE- MAJOR FELONIES
"I hired Ms. Thompson to represent my brother who is currently serving a life sentence for capital murder. I chose her because of her reputation in representing those facing the death penalty. She has worked on his case more than the trial attorney ever did, and I could not be more thankful for her work."
"I met Attorney Thompson when she was volunteering at a federal prison where I was held in Florida. She spoke to a group of us about using our lives to make a change in humanity. After she spoke, she took the time to listen to me about my case. My family later hired her to represent me in post-conviction work. Attorney Thompson took the time to review my files, read my trial transcripts, meet with my family, and has provided me with a fresh new look at the issues that no one ever thought of. I trust her and she has proven to be exactly what she says she is."
"Ms. Thompson helped me and my family when we were truly in a crisis. My son was arrested for a serious sexual offense and he was only 14 years old. She cut no corners; she never backed down from the DA. With her on our side my son was in good hands and my family is intact. He has now graduated high school and has a job!
"Teri Thompson is insightful and very methodical. She is aggressive in the courtroom, and yet she remains passionate and sympathetic to my interests. More than anything, she listens and follows through."
"When I needed a lawyer to help me, Teri Thompson was there! I was facing charges with very serious consequences on my future and my career. She resolved everything in my favor, and I am forever grateful."
