Fighting for Clients In Deland, Daytona Beach and Throughout Central Florida

Your Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

Since taking the Oath of Admission to the Florida Bar ten years ago, I have practiced criminal law in Volusia County. My job for nearly six years was serving as a prosecutor for the State Attorney’s Office in DeLand, Florida. As a former prosecutor, I tried homicides, sexual assaults, driving under the influence cases, white-collar crimes, grand theft, elder abuse, assault and battery, and narcotics cases. Now that I represent the accused, I take my knowledge and skills as a former prosecutor and use it to defend my clients in Volusia County, Seminole County, Lake County, and Flagler County.

Since leaving the State Attorney’s Office, I have learned the importance of personal attention for those facing criminal charges. Your future is in jeopardy, you do not understand the legal system, and you do not know what to tell your own family. I have designed my firm to provide you with the personal attention necessary to explain these issues to you as you deal with the criminal justice system. When you call Thompson Law, you speak to me. When you sit down for your free consultation at Thompson Law, you sit with me.
