Born in Gulf Breeze, Fla., just outside of Pensacola, Ms. Thompson attended Florida State University in Tallahassee for her undergraduate studies. She attended Mercer University School of Law, drawn to the Macon school’s program by a competitive scholarship. She graduated in May 2020.
Ms. Thompson joined the Buzzell, Welsh & Hill team while still in law school, starting off as an intern and moving on to become a part-time staff member as she finished her degree. Now with her Juris Doctorate degree, she’s enjoying meeting clients, learning about their lives and representing them in court. “I enjoy workers’ comp and personal injury cases because I get to advocate for those who’ve been hurt,” she said. “It’s meaningful to me, and it really helps to create a connection when you get to see your client face-to-face.”
When she’s not working, Ms. Thompson is passionate about exercise, hiking and staying active. She loves Braves baseball and enjoys the team trips to Atlanta to watch in-person games. And after a long week or a challenging hike, Ms. Thompson likes to relax with a good book and her cat, Louie.
