  • John A. Gallagher

    I worked with Tom for 9 years. Of all the lawyers that I have worked with and against, there is no one that I know that better understands employment law than Tom Rees. He is also a fierce advocate, always prepared to a T and a real gentleman. If Tom is handling your case, you are in superb hands.
