Scott A. Thompson

Resolving divorces amicably when possible, and fiercely protecting client’s parental rights and property when necessary.

My legal career began in 2008 when a global law firm headquartered in New York City recruited me out of law school.  Over the next four years, I learned the practice of law from some of the best in the nation.  I will bring those standards of excellence to bear in your case.

While on vacation to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, I fell in love with Africa and decided to return as more than a tourist.  So, in 2013, I moved to Namibia, Africa.  There, I counseled a United Nations-funded organization working with rural farmers and taught high school physics and chemistry. I also met my wife, a native Austinite, while living and working in Africa.

Since returning to my wife’s hometown of Austin in 2015, I have practiced exclusively criminal and family law:  First, as a Texas criminal prosecutor.  Now, as a private attorney who solves criminal and family law problems as the Managing Attorney at Thompson Law.

I’m fearless in the courtroom, tough in negotiations, experienced in complex financial matters, and passionate about helping my clients to achieve their goals.

If you’re facing a divorce, criminal charges, or a difficult family issue, I’m here to guide you through the process and fight for you each step of the way.
