    I am a Florida corporate and business law practitioner and have had the pleasure of working with Tom Curtis on several complex litigation matters arising in the state of New York on behalf of our mutual client. In each instance, Tom was masterful at his craft as a litigator and real estate practitioner and was successful in resolving the matters in our client's favor. He is diligent, tenacious and highly skilled in complex legal matters and I would not hesitate to call on him for his advanced legal knowledge when certain complex matters arise

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I needed guidance on a commercial Landlord Tenant matter and his knowledge of the field was extensive and his willingness to share that knowledge with a colleague was truly gratifying. He went out of his way to discuss the various issues concerning my matter and his information was intelligent, practical and eminently successful in regards to my issues. I would recommend his services without reservation.
