My Commitment to My Clients

If you find yourself in need of a lawyer, there’s a good chance something’s gone wrong. Hiring the right lawyer for your case may be one of the most important decisions you ever have to make.

Rest assured, my staff and I make certain our clients always receive our personalized attention. I understand that any serious encounter with the Court system is an ordeal filled with stress and uncertainty.

But I have built my reputation over 35 years by consistently giving clients honest, practical legal advice and zealous, professional representation. My commitment to my clients is to use all my training and experience to provide the highest level of legal service to achieve the best outcome possible.

My Education and Training

I graduated with honors from Duke University in 1980. I went on to obtain my law degree from the University of Florida College of Law in Gainesville in 1983. After graduating from law school and passing the bar exam, I began my career as an Assistant State Attorney for the Eighteenth Judicial Circuit in Brevard County, Florida.

I’m currently admitted to practice before all courts throughout the State of Florida, plus the Federal District Court for the Middle District of Florida, the Federal Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit of the United States and the United States Supreme Court.

My Professional Background

As a prosecutor I handled DUIs and other misdemeanors, as well as sexual offenses, drug trafficking and related offenses, burglaries, robberies, and other felonies, including homicides. I learned the inner workings of our criminal justice system. In 1986 I joined a well-established law firm in private practice and took on criminal cases, domestic cases, general civil litigation and personal injury cases.

My time as a prosecutor taught me how to try cases in the courtroom. It taught me the importance of thorough preparation, and that, as a lawyer, you never stop being a student of the law. In the years since, I have honed my skills in other areas of the law, including family law, and civil litigation.

A Leader in the Legal Community and Brevard County

Throughout his career Jeffrey Thompson has been a leader among his peers in the legal community, and he has given back to the greater Brevard County community as well.

Jeffrey Thompson has served on the Board of Directors of the Brevard County Bar Association and Brevard County Legal Aid. He was the President of the local bar association in 1996-97. He has also served on the local Florida Bar Grievance Committee as well as numerous other state and local bar committees.

To help improve the lives of the less-fortunate members of our community, Jeffrey Thompson served on the Board of Directors of the Central Brevard Sharing Center and for many years served as a volunteer with United Way of Brevard County, earning its Community Impact Volunteer of the Year award in 2008.


Jeffrey Thompson cares about his profession, and he cares about our community. His commitment to ethics and professionalism, and to improving the lives of others, is a distinction that, along with his extensive experience, sets him apart from some other lawyers.

A Lawyer You Can Trust

Whether you face a criminal charge or you are headed for divorce, you need more than just a “competent” lawyer. You need sound legal representation from a lawyer with more than 30 years experience handling hundreds of cases like yours. It would be my privilege to be your lawyer.
