Our attorneys have been practicing law and positively impacting clients in Dallas since Colonel Bill Thompson and Colonel Bob Knight opened their offices in 1887. We were among the first to practice law in Dallas' Old Red Courthouse and, as Dallas became an international center of commerce, finance, energy, and technology, our practice grew far beyond the city limits. Throughout Thompson & Knight's history, our resilience and our ability and willingness to adapt have fueled our success.
