    Highly Recommended

    Atty. McCabe is the most dedicated, hardworking and thorough attorney I have ever encountered. He is both realistic and committed with excellent communication skills ! He took great interest in my divorce and "blew away" the opposing attorney with his attention to detail and quick insights and responses. I highly recommend Atty. McCabe. He's an attorney I want in my side!

    Atty McCabe gets the job done!

    Tom is great. I have used him for a number of situations and always valued his advice. He is effective, responsive and empathetic. He is aggressive when you need it, but as importantly, he knows when to hold back. Sometimes you have to fight fire with water! There are plenty of lawyers - especially in family matters - who are happy to burn your money - Tom isn't one of them! In the end he did the most important thing, which was get the case done with a reasonable outcome. I will reach out to him again whenever I need counsel.

    A True Professional With Integrity

    Attorney Thomas McCabe represented us in a very complicated, challenging and emotionally charged matter. In this lengthy suit, Atty. McCabe conducted expert, in depth research with a thorough knowledge of pertinent legal matters. His competence and genuine interest in our case significantly lessened our burden and produced favorable outcomes. Atty. McCabe evidences integrity and compassion coupled with the keen ability to focus on the issues and goals. Atty. McCabe is a approachable, responsive, and responsible progressional. He certainly left " no stones unturned" and always kept us informed in a respectful & timely matter. Upon completion of the case, we knew we had chosen our attorney wisely and one who worked for a just and complete outcome. Should we ever encounter the need for representation in the future, I would contact Atty. Thomas McCabe immediately.

    How do you spell DIS-BARRED?

    I hired him. I fired him. He did not file motions as he promised. He did not return phone calls. He did not ever account for his time billing. He did not advise of court dates. He did not show up in court when required. He appears to have absolutely no integrity. He makes false claims of his affiliations. He was thrown out of his previous office because the other attorneys got tired of taking phone calls from irate clients. STAY AWAY

    Incompetent and Irresponsible

    The only reason Thomas Eugen McCabe is getting one star is because this Avvo system will not allow me to give him less. I hired Mr. MccCabe earlier this year in an Alimony and Child Abuse case. As appears to be his current trend, he made promises he never kept, he never advised of court dates, never filed a single motion, provided no documentation for his invoices, communicated through text message (how gnarly), and exhibited no concern for the welfare of a minor child who was an innocent by-stander in the whole ordeal. He was notifed that a minor child was being left home alone while her alcholic father left the country for a week and despite the URGENT pleas for swift action to prevent this from happening...he did nothing. Not a single phone call. Not a single email. When I informed him that these were Grieve-able offenses, he trembled for a moment, promised to refund fees, and then as in all cases prior, went back on his word and did nothing. It appears ealrier reviews (from over a year ago) were very positive but sonce then, we are all singing the same song. Please, for your own good, stay away from this attorney.

    Feeling betrayed

    I hired Mr. Mccabe to represent me in my divorce and it was a huge mistake. He failed to inform me of court dates and therefore I was a " NoShow" and so was HE! What kind of lawyer doesn't tell his client of upcomming court dates? What kind of lawyer NEVER shows up himself? I am still trying to recover money I paid him, as he has not responded to me or my current attorneys requests! While he was working for me he failed to return calls or texts to keep me informed and I always felt like I was in the dark.

    Thomas E. McCabe’s response: “I honestly do not know who this purported client is but would be happy to entertain a dialogue as to what he or she feels was not done properly and what funds were not returned.”

    Extremely unprofessional.

    Attorney Thomas Eugene McCabe is a extremely unprofessional attorney.
    He represented me for a year in a divorce matter. He never returned calls or texts and rarely emails. He'd schedule times to meet on 3 seperate occasions and never showed up. He also lied and said he filed a very important document with the court that was never filed even though I paid him the filing fee.
    Attorney McCabe lacks morals and empathy.
    He is also refusing to give me my personal documents over a measly $200!
    Because of him I am still going through this nasty divorce. His only answer to me was he just wanted to drag it out. Attorney McCabe has no business in this line of work!

    Thomas E. McCabe’s response: “This client was offered a significantly reduced rate of about 1/4 my regular rate for my legal services, of which included trial. The "three separate occasions referenced were three different times that this client wanted me to meet with her boyfriend to collaborate testimony of the marital property she disposed of for cash to her now current boyfriend, Her husband had been incarcerated and I incurred significant loss of income for a lot of time spent on this matter. Even the Court held in their decisions that her testimonial was not creditable. I am sorry she feels this way but perhaps she should start living a better lifestyle and not blaming others for all her troubles. Her file is ready to be picked up and she refuses to pay the outstanding balance.”

    Review

    As a follow up to my review, I filed a Grievance Complaint against Attorney Thomas E. McCabe in June, 2014 in relation to my complaints regarding his "professional" conduct in representing me in my legal matters against my ex-husband. The Statewide Grievance Committee reviewed my complaint and felt it worthy of forwarding to the Stamford-Norwalk Grievance Panel. The Grievance Panel, in September, 2014 determined that there is probable cause that Attorney McCabe is guilty of misconduct, violating the following Rules of Professional Conduct: Rule 1.5(b) failure to provide a written retainer; Rule 1.1 failure to competently represent the Complainant in litigation; Rule 1.15(e) failure to account for retainer ( provide account statements); Rule 1.8(j) conflict of interest; Rule 8.1(2) failure to respond to the Complaint. A hearing before the Statewide Grievance Committee was scheduled. Attorney McCabe confirmed the above violations (except Rule 1.1 - but I believe strongly he violated that Rule as well) on 10/31/2014, admitting that there is sufficient evidence which would lead a court to find by clear and convincing evidence that he is in violation. Attorney McCabe chose to bypass the Statewide Grievance Committee process, electing instead to have the matter sent directly to and heard by the Superior Court. Presentment to the Superior Court was filed on 11/7/2014. I will post the findings following the 12/10/2014 hearing......

    My advice, regardless of the Superior Court findings, DO NOT seek legal assistance in any form from Thomas E. McCabe.

    Thomas E. McCabe’s response: “There are many many things I could say about this client who for some reason has taken on a personal agenda against me. However, without divulging the large amount of information regarding this client, I was her third or fourth attorney in her file and should have known prior to filing my appearance. I will not engage in back and forth with this client.”
