Epstein Cole continues to elevate its expertise with the addition of Rollie Thompson, KC, to our team.
Professor Thompson is a leading and respected academic with expertise in the law of child support, spousal support, evidence, civil procedure, relocation and child protection, and an encyclopedic memory of caselaw across the country.
