Marshall A. Thompson
Marshall Thompson was born in Corpus Christi but has called Austin home for more than ten years. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin and went on to graduate with honors from The University of Texas School of Law.
Marshall dedicates the majority of his practice to family law. He has handled all varieties of family law matters including divorce, child custody, paternity, child support, protective orders, post-divorce modifications and enforcements, termination/adoptions and interstate custody disputes. He has experience tackling the more contentious issues in family law, including disproportionate property divisions, spousal support, grandparents’ rights, interspousal tort actions, move-away cases, and cases involving substance abuse, child abuse and domestic violence.
Marshall also represents clients in federal income tax disputes with the IRS throughout the administrative appeals process and in proceedings before the United States Tax Court. He has a particular interest in the intersection of tax law and family law – including Injured Spouse and Innocent Spouse Relief and divorce planning to anticipate the tax implications of child support, alimony, property division and the transfer or sale of assets.
He is licensed to practice in Texas and is also admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for the Western and Southern Districts of Texas and the United States Tax Court. He is a member of the Austin Bar Association, the Williamson County Bar Association, the Austin Young Lawyers Association, and the Family Law Section of the State Bar of Texas. He serves on the board of the Allandale Neighborhood Association and volunteers as a mentor attorney for Volunteer Legal Services of Central Texas and the Austin Bar Association Mentoring Program.
Mr. Thompson was not only extremely knowledgeable with family law and offered the best options for my son’s safety, he also was very compassionate towards me during a very hard time.
