Aaron C. December 15, 2023
Did the lawyer provide satisfactory legal services? No Was the lawyer knowledgeable about the law? No Did the lawyer resolve your issue? No Did the lawyer keep you informed and up to date? No Was the lawyer courteous and professional? No Was the lawyer caring and empathetic? No They will make claims of what they can do and will not fulfill. Made claims of “we can” re-litigate previous trials, record being expunged, rights being restored, resigned from the case before doing so and did not argue anything at a review hearing due to who the judge was, which was a recent ADA during my case. That is a conflict . I offered to write down events prior of trial date for evidence and he denied it, “it’ll be okay” he claimed. Claimed the victim’s untruthfulness was irrelevant, but yet I was prosecuted to her untruthful claims. The State knew of her criminal acts and they did not report it to the Court, nor did my attorney inform the Court of the State’s misconduct, negligence and criminal accessory. Claimed he did his job by keeping me out of jail while completely sacrificing my criminal record with something I’m not even guilty of and is not eligible for an expungement.

Biography

Mr. Thompson is a native Floridian having grown up in Fort Lauderdale. After graduating with honors from Fort Lauderdale Christian School, he was offered placement in the Honors Program at the University of Georgia. Following receipt of his undergraduate degree in Political Science, he remained in Athens and received his law degree from the University of Georgia School of Law. During that time he was also an officer in the Demosthenian Society in which he focused on oral argument and debate.

Prior to relocating to North Carolina, Mr. Thompson practiced a wide array of litigation in both Georgia and Florida, including personal injury, wrongful death, as well as admiralty and maritime litigation. However, since moving to Charlotte in 1995, he has tailored his practice to criminal litigation focusing primarily on individuals charged with DWI/DUI, felonies and misdemeanors in Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Union, Catawba, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln and Stanly counties.

Jeff is married to his lovely wife Bobbie and they are the proud parents of one daughter. He is an avid athlete and remains active as a tournament level golf and tennis player. He has also spent his time helping teach and mentor young people through tennis and with his work through the Special Olympics.

Mr. Thompson is a member in good standing in the North Carolina State Bar, the Georgia State Bar and the Florida State Bar, and has been admitted to practice in the Southern District of Florida Federal Bar.
