PAUL HOOD, Jr., J.D., LL.M., CFRE
VICE PRESIDENT

A native of Louisiana (and a double LSU Tiger), after obtaining his law degrees in 1986 and 1988, Paul settled down to practice tax and estate planning law in the New Orleans area until he entered the nonprofit world in 2012. 

Paul has spent over 30 years specializing in taxes and estate planning.  He has taught at the University of New Orleans, Northeastern University, The University of Toledo College of Law and Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law.   

He finds great joy in teaching others its importance and the impact they are able to make.  At Thompson & Associates, Paul is able to combine his technical background and love for the details most cringe to think about and marry it with his teaching heart to guide individuals and families through a thoughtful process in ensuring their values are evident in their estate plan. 

The proud father of two Eagle Scouts and LSU Tigers, Paul has authored or co-authored seven books and over 500 professional articles on estate and tax planning and business valuation.  Paul now calls Toledo, Ohio home.
