I was born in North Eastern Tennessee in a town called Johnson City. I lived there until I was 7 years old – that was when my family moved to Vero Beach, Florida. While growing up in Vero, I got very involved in music and the band program. I started coming to camp at Stetson University when I was 12, and it quickly became my home away from home. I attended that camp for 6 years throughout middle school and high school, until I graduated and made Stetson University my real home.

Throughout high school I was a die-hard band geek. I wanted to go to college for music performance, but I knew that wasn’t where my true passion was. My passion was in social justice. I loved the idea of standing up for people – especially those who couldn’t do it themselves. When I was a senior, my AP Government teacher took his classes to the Court House one day to watch the legal process in action. That was the day that I fell in love with the law. I knew instantly that it was what I wanted to do with my life.

When I got to Stetson, the first thing I did was join the Mock Trial team, which grew my love for law even more. I was placed on A team as an attorney my first year, and by sophomore year I was President. My passion for law flourished. As an undergraduate preparing for law school, I am a political science major with minors in sociology and philosophy. These disciplines not only teach me how to think like a lawyer, but how to analyze the law, and why our legal system runs the way it does.

When I very first became interested in law, I thought that I wanted to be a prosecutor. I had the same thought many people have “how could you defend someone who breaks the law in such a way?” I brought this very concern up to my mock trial coach one evening, as she is a public defender. She simply looked at me and said, “because this is America, and everyone deserves a defense. It’s their constitutional right.” That moment changed my entire perspective. Defense also aligned with my personal passions more than being a prosecutor would have. I love helping people, and that is what I intend to do with my journey. This journey may have just begun, but I cannot wait to see where it takes me.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"In the past thirteen years we have used several lawyers and found them lacking. We have found Attorney Matt Thompson very pleasant to work with. He was very detailed and listened with true compassion. We were impressed with his straightforwardness and what seems to be a NO promises attitude. I would rather hear the truth than lie to make me feel better. His approach was simple, honest, and we especially liked his preparedness of the case." Susan

"Great lawyer Matt Thompson runs a small local law firm, which has minimal staff; however, don't be fooled this is on purpose. Matt is very professional courteous, and knows the law inside and out. He is a great person to have in your corner. He is very personalized in individual attention to his clients and their struggles. Matt Thompson is a champion for the peoples rights. I couldn't have had a better lawyer during my time of need, and I highly recommend him for all issues involving the law." Aaron
