    Richard Thompson is the co-founder (1998) and President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center. The Law Center is a national nonprofit public interest law firm dedicated to the defense and promotion of the America’s Judeo-Christian heritage and values, the sanctity of human life, a strong national defense, and an independent and sovereign United States of America.

    Prior to heading the Law Center, he spent 24 years of his professional career at the executive level of law enforcement. As elected Oakland County, Michigan Prosecuting Attorney for eight years (from 1989 to 1996), Thompson directed a staff of 180 including 102 lawyers, and administered an annual budget of $12 million dollars. His law enforcement accomplishments included: successfully defending the constitutionality of Michigan’s Mandatory Life Law for major drug dealers in the United States Supreme Court, creating the state’s first Child Sexual Assault Crimes Unit, and developing one of the nation’s toughest no plea-bargaining policies–which achieved a 98 percent conviction rate.

    Thompson gained national prominence as prosecuting attorney for his uncompromising stand against Jack Kevorkian, despite public opinion in Michigan which overwhelmingly supported “Dr. Death” and Physician Assisted Suicide.

    Thompson served as a member of Michigan Governor John Engler’s Advisory Council on Criminal Justice, and as a member of the Michigan Commission on Death and Dying–established under state law for the purpose of making recommendations to the state legislature on the issue of physician assisted suicide. He has appeared before numerous state legislative committees on law enforcement and family values issues and interacted with governmental entities at the national level.

    Thompson has appeared on numerous nationally televised talk shows, including: FOX News Channel’s O’Reilly Factor and Hannity & Colmes, CNN’s Crossfire and Larry King Live, The Phil Donahue Show, The Joan Rivers Show, and Rivera Live on CNBC.
