Thompson Salinas Rickers & McDermott, LLP

  • Family Lawyers

At Thompson Salinas Rickers & McDermott, we believe in a different kind of law firm. We believe in lawyers who are part of your community, who cultivate a relationship with you as a client. We believe these personal connections enhance your experience as a client and our ability to be the one-stop shop you’re looking for.

The world has gotten more complex, and many law firms have responded by becoming increasingly specialized and able to handle only a narrow set of legal challenges. This way of practicing of law has become a collection of short-term decisions, while the development of enduring personal connections has fallen to the side.


Whether your goal is an amicable divorce with a negotiated settlement, or if you need a trial to achieve a fair outcome, you need the advice of experienced family law attorneys to guide you through the complicated divorce process. An effective divorce attorney needs to have proven trial experience and have a command of the law involved in complicated property division, child and spousal support, and custody.
