“We measure our success not by the number of ‘billable hours’ we log, but rather by the families whose lives are forever changed for the better as a result of the work that we do.” ~ Michelle C. Thomas, Founder
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) November 28, 2017
M.C. Thomas & Associates, PC, A Premiere Divorce & Family Law Firm celebrated its Ten Year Anniversary on November 2, 2017. The firm’s Founder, Michelle C. Thomas, had one mission: to create a haven for persons going through one of life’s most difficult transitions—divorce—and represent them with integrity and excellence every time. Thomas recalls, “There were a lot of long hours in the beginning. I was young, and some might even say naive. But, I knew I was called to a greater purpose-- to make a positive difference in the lives of many men, women and children.“
Now, ten years later, M.C. Thomas & Associates, PC is pleased to have represented hundreds of clients across Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and Maryland. The boutique divorce firm is well known for providing strategic divorce and family law services ranging from helping “displaced dads” win custody of children, to protecting clients’ hard-earned businesses and assets from being squandered by a spouse, to preparing prenuptial agreements for professional athletes and politicians to preserve wealth. “We never take our work or the clients we serve for granted,” Thomas says. “It’s a privilege to have represented so many throughout this region.” After 10 years of proven results the firm has become a recognized leader in divorce and family law, amassing a clientele that includes professional athletes, attorneys/law firm partners, doctors and surgeons, politicians, lobbyists, judges, real estate developers, corporate executives, business owners and other professionals alike, and gaining most of its business by referrals from clients and colleagues.
One of the keys to the firm’s success is its unparalleled work ethic. The Core Values of the firm are Integrity, Consistency and Excellence. In other words, “we will not be outworked—nor out-prepared,” says Thomas. The attorneys at M.C. Thomas & Associates, PC agree. Long-time Attorney Associate, Stephen Payne, Esq. says, “it’s been an honor to spend the formative years of my career at M.C. Thomas. One of the things that stood out to me when I joined the firm over three years ago was how hard Michelle works for her clients. She believes in them, which drives her to be the best, and motivates me to want to do my best as well.” The firm’s administrator who has been with the firm since the beginning says, “Michelle is an extraordinary lawyer with a good heart. It’s been great watching the firm evolve. I get to hear the gratitude in clients’ voices when they call, and that makes it worthwhile.”
That work ethic has paid off. Founder, Michelle C. Thomas, has received numerous awards over her illustrious career. She’s been repeatedly recognized by SuperLawyers as a Family Law Rising Star in Washington, D.C.—a recognition no more than 2.5% of her peers receive per state, and repeatedly named to the Top 100 Lawyers list by the National Black Lawyers, recognized as a Top 10 Best Family Lawyers for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, named a Top 40 Under 40 Award recipient by the National Bar Association, a Top 10 Family Law Attorney in Maryland by Attorney and Practice Magazine, and the Young Lawyer of the Year by the Bar Association of D.C. the year she formed the firm, among other accolades. A recognized leader in the legal profession, Michelle C. Thomas has been elected to the D.C. Bar Board of Governors and served as president of various voluntary bar associations.
When not in the courtroom trying cases or in a conference room settling them, Thomas can be seen as a guest divorce and relationship expert on various radio shows on Radio One, or lecturing or doing pro bono volunteer work such as presenting free legal family law seminars to those in need.
Michelle C. Thomas, says she’s been blessed to be able to do the work she was loves at M.C. Thomas & Associates, PC, by helping clients put their lives back together during and after divorce or contentious custody disputes. “I’m deeply grateful to all of the clients, colleagues and friends who continue to put their trust in the firm for their divorce and family law matters,” Thomas says. “Although we cannot guarantee outcomes, we can guarantee that we will always fight for our clients and do our best to achieve the best outcome possible for each case.” For more information about M.C.
