Criminal Defense Attorney
Serving Oak Grove, Kentucky


Michael J. Thompson

Attorney at Law

Before my bar admission in 2009, I was a proud member of the United States Marine Corps. Throughout my four years with the Marines, I learned what it takes to have true determination and persistence for any goal placed in front of me. As an attorney today, I take those attributes and use them to help my clients with their criminal defense, family law, personal injury, and military law cases in Oak Grove, Hopkinsville, Cadiz, and Elkton, Kentucky. I am also licensed in Tennessee and Federal court which allows me to help clients in Clarksville, TN and Fort Campbell, Kentucky. I cannot guarantee an outcome, but I can promise that I will work diligently to pursue the best possible outcome for your case.


What Sets My Firm Apart?

Here is What I Can Offer When You Choose to Work With Me

The Pursuit of Justice

No matter what legal matter you are faced with in Oak Grove, Kentucky — it can be a daunting experience navigating the legal system. I like to see people treated fairly, and I will use that as fuel in pursuit of a favorable result. With me by your side, you can rest assured knowing that your rights will be protected and your voice heard.

A Steadfast Approach

One may say having a hard-headed personality is a fallback, but I use that trait to my clients' advantage. I believe that as long as you have a fair chance, I will continuously fight for your rights and your freedom. If you're looking for an attorney that won't give up, turn to me for thorough representation from beginning to end.

Experienced in the Court Room

Your criminal case may very well go to court, and if that happens, you need a criminal defense attorney that has been in a high-stakes situation like that before. I have represented many clients through jury trials, and I will use my previous exposure in the courtroom to put up a strong fight for you and your best interests.

Practice Areas




Compassionate. Determined. Effective.

Throughout Oak Grove, Hopkinsville, Cadiz, and Elkton, Kentucky and its surrounding areas, I have assisted clients through a wide variety of legal matters, including criminal defense, family law, and personal injury cases. Regardless of what legal issue they may be facing, one thing all of my clients have in common is that they are in a situation that can have a lasting impact on their life.

For those who have been criminally charged, they might be facing years in prison or thousands of dollars in fines. Whether you've been charged with a DUI/DWI, drug crime, sex crime, or violent crime, you need a skilled, aggressive criminal defense attorney at your side.

It takes a knowledgeable and strategic attorney to take your case to court and seek a dropped charge or reduced sentence. My previous experience as a Marine has given me the necessary tools to keep fighting and exhaust all available options in pursuit of justice.

Families going through legal matters like divorce, child custody, child visitation, and adoption are taking big steps to start a new chapter in their life. The decisions that are made regarding property division or physical custody of the child are critical. A thorough family law attorney will need to make sure every base is covered to guide you in the right direction.

If you have been involved in a car accident or other personal injury, you may be entitled to compensation. As a skilled personal injury attorney, it's my job to gather the necessary evidence so that you can hold the responsible party accountable for their negligent actions.

I aim to make as positive of an impact as possible for those facing legal troubles. My Oak Grove, Kentucky, law firm serves much of the surrounding areas — including the communities of Fort Campbell, Hopkinsville, Cadiz and Elkton. Schedule a free consultation today!
