RICK THOMPSON

I handle all aspects of civil appeals in state and federal court. As a former Assistant Solicitor General at the Solicitor General's Office for the Attorney General of Texas, I have successfully presented numerous oral arguments in state appellate courts throughout Texas, including the Texas Supreme Court, and before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. In addition, I assist clients in the pretrial and trial phases of litigation--collaborating with trial counsel to develop and execute trial strategies, formulate key dispositive motions, and prepare jury charges. After law school, I clerked for the Honorable Royce C. Lamberth, United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
