Since 2008, I’ve remained passionate about representing real people and helping them through difficult times in their lives. I understand how many aspects of your life divorce can impact, which is why I focus on representing real people with everyday problems, not banks or insurance companies. Whether you are starting the divorce filing process, trying to collect child support or aiming to adopt a child, I take great pride in helping you find a solution. Each case is different, and as your attorney, my job is to listen to you. I will analyze your situation, identify the legal issues and make you aware of your options while fiercely representing you once you decide how to proceed.
I am an active member of both the San Antonio Family Law Association and the San Antonio Elder Law Association. Read more about my experience and background by clicking the link below.
Because of my background, I am particularly familiar with the concerns that service members and their families face, particularly regarding child support and dividing military retirement. I can answer your questions and provide guidance based on my experience helping service members stationed all over the world.
What Makes The The Law Office of Mark C. Thompson Different?
When you hire The Law Office of Mark C. Thompson, you get me. I will answer your calls and questions, not a paralegal or any other associate. In addition, because I am a solo practitioner, I don’t have the overhead costs of a larger firm. This means I can often provide flexible, affordable and high-quality guidance to my clients.
Because my service is personalized to your needs, I can help you decide whether going to court is best for your case. Some divorces can be nasty, but many others can be settled through mediation. If we decide to go to court, I will do everything in my power to win. However, if we can come to a solution outside of the courtroom, that is often the most economic solution.
Personally: I started working at age 14, and I put myself through college and law school. I have been in practice for over 12 years. While I have a lot left to learn, I consider myself very experienced with the day-to-day reality of the courts in Bexar County and the surrounding counties. My mother practiced family law for 25 years, and I learned a lot from working with her. In September of 2017, I was diagnosed with cancer, and after 6 months of chemotherapy, I am in remission. I understand that life can change in an instant. My parents also divorced when I was 10 years old, and I believe this gives me a unique insight and understanding.
