I worked with Scott Thompson for eighteen months...

I worked with Scott Thompson for eighteen months through a very unpleasant and stressful divorce which was initially intended to be short and amicable. Scott was a great champion and advisor to me as I dealt with continual threats and unfounded challenges. All the while, extra court time and cost was avoided in the process of achieving a reasonable final outcome. He is very capable both strategically and tactically. Together, we minimized the negative impact to my children, which was my top priority. Scott and his team were always available to field my questions and concerns. I highly recommend him as a tough and knowledgeable professional, and a great partner in getting the unsavory job done. Regardless of who initiates it, divorce is a painful and daunting experience. Working with Scott Thompson was instrumental in getting to a better existence and a welcoming future. I highly recommend his services.

INCREDIBLE! There are not enough stars available for Scott in this review option! Scott has been incredible throughout the entirety of an extremely difficult and lengthy family court trial. He is brilliant and dedicated and tough, all while remaining cool and professional, but very clearly stating the issues in my case. He has been steadfast and tough-as-nails, while, all at the same time, sensitive to my family’s and my most emotionally difficult times. I would highly recommend Scott to my very closest, dearest, most-loved friend or family member.

I am deeply grateful

I am deeply grateful for the care and professionalism that Scott Thompson and his team offered in handling my case. He allowed me to maintain my values and integrity through a challenging legal process all the while offering sound legal advice. I was given options along every step. Complexities were rendered clear through excellent communication. It was affordable. I was treated with respect and attended to as a unique individual with my own needs. I highly recommend.

I researched and spoke to several lawyers...

I researched and spoke to several lawyers before I filed for divorce. I immediately felt Scott was the best choice but still continued to interview other attorneys and firms. Before I was even a real paying client, Scott consistently demonstrated his knowledge, empathy, and genuine concern for me as a client and human being. But what I appreciated more than anything else was his integrity. There were several opportunities and moments throughout the divorce where Scott’s, and my, integrity could have been compromised. Scott remained consistently honorable even up to the very last moment of service when all my concerns and objectives were achieved. What’s more, Scott not only legally, and ethically, outmaneuvered opposing counsel, but he was the “pitbull” most clients want their lawyers to be when the occasion called and cool, steady, and stoic at all other times. My ex-wife is an attorney, and she had a huge family law firm, who were also her classmates and friends, at her disposal. Scott and his team had no problem handle opposing counsel. I am confident I came out further ahead than if he would have simply done what I wanted or if I would have had a different attorney. Finally, Scott never allowed my emotions, attitude, or mood to derail the proceedings, alter his attitude, or change how he treated me as a client. He always always looked at the bigger picture and kept the main thing the main thing. I do not believe you could find a better family law attorney in Texas, definitely not in Austin. You cannot go wrong hiring Scott. I thank him and his entire staff for allowing me to finally get my peace of mind and life back.

Scott is hands down the best divorce lawyer in all the state of Texas

Scott is hands down the best divorce lawyer in all the state of Texas. Scott & his team made sure the whole process was very fast and went incredibly smooth even though I had moved out of state during the process. Since I was out of state I was worried it would make things difficult but Scott was very attentive and he always made availability to answer all my questions & concerns during my divorce process. His staff was also very helpful throughout the process and professional at all times. I recommend Scott & his team to the fullest.

Scott Thompson and his staff were extremely helpful

Scott Thompson and his staff were extremely helpful, resourceful, responsive, and advocated for my case. I highly recommend his legal services and his advise was exceptional!

Anne I. (4/6/2022)

Scott has been amazing

Scott has been amazing and his work has helped to significantly change my family’s life for the better. Scott listened to my situation and really understood what I was dealing with and the need for a better custody situation for our family. In my search, I spoke to 5 other lawyers about my situation. It seemed like they were all quick to respond but Scott was quick to listen. He was the first person that truly made me feel heard. From then on he was ready to build a game plan to move forward. As a result, I have a significantly improved custody situation and it has been so much better for everyone, especially my child! Moving forward with this and using Scott as my lawyer are two of the best things I’ve ever done.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Scott Thompson for several years

I have had the pleasure of knowing Scott Thompson for several years. The first time I contacted him I was looking for an attorney and advice on how to handle a complicated situation. He listened to me patiently and asked questions that let me know he was listening and completely understood my situation. Although he did not know me at that time, he talked to me in a friendly way that put me at ease and gave me a sense of comfort in a difficult time in my life. During that initial call, he shared options with me and suggested a way to resolve the situation that reduced the costs to me. That was the first time that a lawyer had ever suggested a solution that would save me money to their detriment. About a year after my first call, I reached out to Scott to discuss my situation again and to let him know that my situation had changed. I was surprised that he remembered not only me but specific details of my matter. Again he spent time with me to completely understand my situation and legal needs. By the end of the call, we had agreed on an arrangement to engage his services and also a primary plan and an idea of contingencies depending on how my case moved forward. Scott worked with me on my case for over two-year and worked with Scott on my case and he was always available to me. Scott would update me on the progress of my case while shielding me from the details and pain points that would have caused me unnecessary aggravation or pain. When I talked to Scott about my case, he would explain things in plain English and always clearly identified risks or possible issues that could arise in the future. When it became necessary to appear in court, Scott was there early to prepare me and was fully prepared for all outcomes. In court, Scott was always composed and able to handle situations that came up unexpectedly. When the Judge asked for documents to be prepared, he was the first to offer his services and it was clear that he had the respect of the judges. I was able to observe Scott interact with several judges over several years in various courts with several opposing counsels. This gave me a very unique perspective that I hope others don’t need to experience. What I noticed at each of these hearings was that Scott always gained the respect of the court even when a presiding judge had an existing relationship with opposing counsel. This is not an easy task and was not always immediate. But in all cases, whether it took one hearing or three, it became clear that the Judge respected Scott and gave his statements and arguments more consideration than the opposing counsel. I am glad that I found Scott and that he was able to help me efficiently resolve my matter while reducing the emotional pain that I had to endure. I can not recommend Scott strongly enough. He is the most dedicated, honest, and competent lawyer I have ever met.

Scott Thompson is by far the best in Austin!

Scott Thompson is by far the best in Austin! He was able to put me at ease and I had total confidence with my case during my divorce process. I received the most professional and valuable services at the best rates. He was so kind and willing to continue to help me with a small task request even after my case was closed. Although I hope to never go through another divorce in my life, I will not hesitate to call Scott for his help again.

Lucianna B. (9/2/2021)

Scott was always professional and responsive

I hope I never have to compare divorce lawyers, but Scott was always professional and responsive. I felt heard and he was patient with all my questions.

Zane R. (8/23/2021)

He really made the process as smooth and painless as possible

Scott represented me in my divorce case. He really made the process as smooth and painless as possible. After the consultation with him, and talking to his paralegal Lynne as well, I could tell that they really knew their stuff and would get the job done right. Super friendly too! Scott is very thorough and always kept me in the loop. My case got complicated at times and I can’t thank them enough for their patience and hard work. I had to move halfway through the process and they even set up a zoom meeting to go over documents with me. I would absolutely recommend Thompson Law to anyone who needs a divorce attorney.

Juliana N. (3/9/2021)

Laura, December 17, 2021

"Great guy!"

“Scott and his assistant Lynn were amazing to work with. Scott keeps things real the entire time. No BS about what he’s capable of achieving with your case. My ex was trying to modify our agreement with baseless accusations and with Scott’s help I came out with basically everything in my favor instead. He knows his stuff and was just an understanding and good guy.”

Cory, March 1, 2021

"Incredibly Knowledgeable and Compassionate"

“Scott is the epitome of professionalism, both knowledgeable and compassionate, in a field where many are questionable. Scott is helpful in every way throughout what seems an impossible time in your personal life. He has been there, generous of his own time, to guide, support, and inform through a process that is quite daunting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this compassionate and capable human!”

Dana, February 12, 2021

"Legal Case Review"

“Thompson Law is a great office. My potentially complicated legal issue was quickly and accurately resolved. Scott Thompson explained the details of the resolution and resolved it. His office finished the details. I will use this office again.”

Cliff, July 14, 2020

"Highly Recommended!"

“Scott did an outstanding job for me in my recent divorce case. Divorce is an unpleasant process regardless, but his excellent experience, knowledge and responsiveness made it as hassle-free as could be reasonably expected. Very personable as well. Five Stars all the way!”

Mac, February 26, 2021

"Very thorough and detailed, and pleasant to work with."

“Engaged Scott for a pre-nuptial agreement. While these are pretty straightforward, he was very detailed to make sure all bases were covered. Worked well with my spouse and her attorney as well. Always on time and prepared. Very good follow up. Highly recommended! And, a nice guy to boot!”

Alton, July 25, 2019

"Highly Recommended"

“Scott is a very knowledgeable and professional attorney. He was certainly able to take a large portion of the discomfort one might associate with having to go through a custody process out of the equation and helped create the best scenario possible for my family. This was all done without having to ever go to court, while serving my interests and rights to the extent that would’ve similarly been done had a judge been involved. A family man himself, he put the children in the situation first all the way throughout, and I both appreciate and recommend his services highly.”

Craig, September 10, 2019

"Exemplary attorney"

“Scott was an exemplary lawyer during a difficult time. He was competent, responsive, and calming. I felt he explained the entire process with all my options. I would highly recommend him.”

Dena, June 4, 2019

"Best decision I ever made"

“I had been hesitant to hire an attorney, but all of my stress and anxiety was alleviated once Scott took on my case. After my first meeting with him I knew I was in good hands. I was amazed by his knowledge, professionalism, honesty and attention to detail. He was always available to answer my questions and give advice. He made every effort to be concise and accomplish matters in a timely fashion in order to keep things as cost-effective as possible. It was worth every penny knowing I could trust Scott to fight for my best interests. His compassion and understanding made a difficult time in my life a little easier to bear. Hiring Scott to represent me was the best decision I ever made and I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

Michelle, June 5, 2019

"Bright, Experienced, Efficient"

“Scott helped me with my recent divorce, one of the most stressful experiences of my life. With him I navigated through the process with confidence and calm.
He is knowledgeable and insightful, and could explain all the options before each stage and worked hard to give me enough time to prepare myself.
He is very helpful and I’d recommend him for any family law matters.”

Andy, July 19, 2018

"Dedicated, Prompt, & Professional; Scott Thompson!"

“After being arrested on several counts, including a felony, I immediately contacted Scott Thompson. He is dedicated, hard working, and above all professional. Mr. Thompson always made himself available for face-to-face meetings and phone calls, and was able to answer any questions my family and I had in easy terms. His hard work ethic and dedication to my case made me feel as if I was his only client, and all his attention was directed towards helping me with the case. The case was resolved quickly, with two dismissed misdemeanors and I was never charged with a felony. If you’re in need of a criminal defense attorney, there is no one I could recommend more highly; on account of speed, trust, and professionalism than Mr. Scott Thompson.”

"Excellent divorce representation"

“Scott did a terrific job for me during a trying year of my life. He’s a compassionate advocate, worked quickly, and gave shrewd advice on how to keep my (relatively) amicable divorce from turning contentious. I’d recommend him to anyone.”

anonymous, May 13, 2018

"My Go To Lawyer!!!"

“Scott and I crossed paths serendipitously – Not that I ever thought I would need a lawyer but life doesn’t always let you just tip-toe through the tulips – does it. ;-( So I consulted w/him on my little problem and knew instantly I wanted him on my side. Boy that choice was a good one. As long as he knows your ammo that you have (can even be hidden in vaults or memories) he is able to come out punching. Kept me out of court and the other lawyer never even knew what hit him – he (the other lawyer) did know not to go to court though that’s for sure. :)) I refer Scott to all my friends…even strangers. :)”

Malia, April 24, 2018


“Scott was an amazing lawyer! I came in not knowing what to do or how to handle my situation. But Scott was able to walk me through, step by step how we were gonna approach my case. And the end result was amazing, primary custody of my kiddos was my main goal and Scott was there to make sure we had everything ready to go in and win. I would highly recommend anyone needing an outstanding lawyer to get in touch with Scott Thompson. Thanks for everything you did for me and my family!”

Jesus, April 17, 2018

"Grateful and appreciative"

“I truly appreciate the fact that from consultation to verdict I was kept in the loop of everything in regards to my case. I was given detailed explanations and answers to all of my questions through text and in person. The honesty and tactfulness displayed by Mr. Thompson made my situation a lot easier to deal with. I highly recommend the team of professionals at the CHA law firm.”

anonymous, September 18, 2017

"The best attorney"

“I need my post-marital agreement as soon as possible. And Scott provided the first draft in only 3 days and the final version in about a week. He is very professional, skillful, and drafted the agreement excellently. Besides he always responded to my questions quickly, patiently, and in detailed. He is really really helpful. I am 100% pleased with and thankful for his hard work and commitment. I highly recommend Mr. Scott Thompson.”

Xi, September 12, 2017

"Couldn't have asked for a better lawyer"

“I needed my case settled as quick as possible so I could ship out for Basic and Mr. Thompson pushed me for haste as much as I pushed him. From the time of my arrest to when my case was settled, only 20 days had passed. His past as a prosecutor had the positive effect of knowing how to deal with them and result in my Class A being dismissed as well as my other charge being settled as soon as possible. Like I previously stated, I could not have asked for a better lawyer. I highly recommend Mr. Scott Thompson. I am extremely grateful and indebted to him.”

Jared, January 18, 2017

"Mr Thompson is a caring and very skillful attorney."

“I received a restraining order notice from my baby’s mother accusing me of physical abuse etc. was stunned and surprised, because none of these things never happened. I was scare and worried, because I knew right then that my baby’s mother was trying to kick me out of my sons life and even worse get me in trouble with the law just because our relationship was over. I talked to my family and friends and they all advice me to get a lawyer. So I went online checking for highly reviewed lawyers and I came across Cha Law Group. I went to the office on South Lamar Blvd and met Mr. Thompson a criminal defense attorney. I explained exactly what was going on between me and my baby’s mother. He sympathize with me not been able to see my son and also been accused of bad things. He asked me if I had evidence to discredit her story. I told him yes tons of them. Next day I brought him all my evidence against my ex threatening text, insulting voice mail, physical damage to my apartment done by my ex, police report for the damage to my apartment, pictures etc. So Mr. Thompson explained to me that since my case is a restraining order hearing it mighty go really fast and she needs little evidence to get the order permanent. He asked me to submit my evidence to my baby’s mother attorney so that she can get both sides of the story before the hearing. Once my baby’s mother attorney received my evidence she knew right away that she just wanted to hurt me for leaving her. This played a very great role on our hearing day because my baby’s mother and her attorney withdrew and dismissed the lawsuit without prejudice. So we all came to an agreement with a parenting plan. It was a victory for my son ,me and even my ex because a child needs both parents in his or her life. So I say thank you to Mr. Thompson for your skillful intervention and caring heart.”

Morlai, February 5, 2017

"An excellent attorney"

“I hired Scott Thompson to prepare a premarital agreement for my partner and myself and I was very pleased with his hard work and commitment to producing a document that respected both my wishes and those conveyed through my partner’s lawyer. His grasp of legal matters large and small comes across in his attention to detail as well as his willingness to help clients grapple with the bigger picture that affects their case. I recommend him highly for matters of family law.”
