With so many past clients in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, Thomas & Pearl had received many inquiries over the years from people that the firm has fought and won for before, as well as from the broader community; inquiries about how to find a criminal law team as experienced, ethical and effective as the injury law team at Thomas & Pearl. That made this expansion into Criminal Law a much-needed response to market demand, according to the firm's Managing Partner, Jason Pearl:
"For a long time, our clients, friends and neighbors have said they'd like to see us become a full service law firm. And while we've always been and always will be an injury law firm, we're also committed to meeting the changing and growing legal needs of our community. The trust and faith that so many people have put in our attorneys and the results we've gotten for them - that's exactly what people want in a criminal lawyer. And that's exactly what they'll now be able to get, from Thomas and Pearl's Criminal Defense Division. We welcome Laramie Thompson as our new criminal litigator, and we take pride and pleasure in knowing our firm can now represent clients in both personal injury and criminal cases."
Thompson's addition to the Thomas & Pearl team means that the firm now offers representation in all criminal matters - including traffic violations, DUI charges, marijuana and other drug charges, domestic violence - and all other misdemeanors and felonies. He will also be handling Social Security Disability and injury cases for the firm.
A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Laramie Thompson's youthful appearance and friendly demeanor only strengthen the hand he has to play on behalf of his clients - and a strong hand it is. He's a litigation specialist who handled all manner of criminal cases as a public defender in Michigan, before moving to Florida and working as litigator in Florida's Office of Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel. He is very excited about now joining Thomas & Pearl:
"Thomas and Pearl is an outstanding firm, with real integrity and a terrific track record. The lawyers are tough and ethical; they all have a great reputation in legal circles and in the community, and a fantastic support staff working alongside them. I'm proud to be the newest member of the team, and look forward to fighting for the rights of anyone facing criminal charges of any kind, from traffic offenses all the way up to serious felony charges."
