Paul A. Thompson
- Civil Litigation
PAUL A. THOMPSON is the founding partner of Keller, Woods & Thompson, P.A. law firm, a boutique personal injury firm dedicated to helping individuals and families who have been hurt in accidents. While he has concentrated his practice on civil litigation and has experience representing a wide variety of personal injury accident cases, including victims of car accidents, slip, and falls, wrongful deaths, dog bites, medical malpractice, dram shop/drunk driving, boating accidents among others, Paul has also developed a vast amount of experience in the business world. Particularly, he has an understanding about representation of orthopedic, dental and chiropractic clinics with an emphasis on clinic start-up and development as well as business consultation services such as buy-sell agreements, partnership agreements, IC/employment contracts, insurance billing issues/practices, lease issues, etc. Paul really does have a unique legal background as not just a personal injury lawyer, but as an attorney who is tailor-made for helping those who have been injured in accidents.
Paul combines his vast experience with effective and compassionate client communication and representation to successfully translate the client’s case into a successful courtroom strategy. He takes the time to truly understand the client’s needs. As a result, he has earned the trust and respect of his clients for always keeping their best interests in mind, and the doctors who refer to Paul for his honesty, integrity and dedication to their patients.
While trying a case to a jury is not always the best option for each victim of an accident, this personal injury lawyer knows that his clients deserve to have their case built for trial to maximize their recovery. Paul has significant experience in resolving claims by means of negotiated settlement or other alternative processes. By constantly striving to provide the highest quality of legal representation to the people who hires him, Paul keeps the success of his clients his ultimate goal. This approach has resulted in just compensation for personal injury victims and clients who have confidence in making referrals.
Paul graduated from Augsburg College with summa cum laude honors in 1985. While working and raising a family, he obtained his juris doctorate from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1988. Since founding the law firm of Woods & Thompson, P.A.
