Thompson Law Group Legal Team

Jeff S. Howell, Jr.  ~ Legal Action Division

Prior to joining the Thompson Law Group, Jeff founded and ran a successful law practice in Virginia Beach which catered to local family owned businesses, builders, tradesmen, and real estate professionals. Jeff’s family founded, owned, and operated small businesses for several generations: including farms, mills, lumber yards, and most recently construction companies. With those values as a foundation, Jeff began his practice in the same way as many of his clients: by spending his life savings to outfit a small one-room office in his home. From that humble beginning, Jeff went on to grow an experienced and dedicated team of professionals tirelessly advocating for clients across Hampton Roads.
