Tom assisted me with an employment issue and gave very clear and helpful legal advice on how to proceed. He was very knowledgable as well as warm and supportive.
Tom advised me on a particularly confusing contract negotiation with my employer. He was generous, responsive and showed good humor during a difficult time for me. I came to trust Tom's knowledge and advice, and believe that he would show the same kind of generosity to other clients who came his way.
He is an extremely knowledgeable and straight forward attorney. He looked at every angle of my case, and provided me with at least two choices I could make. He never pressured me into a decision, rather gave me sound advice, helped me with a pros and cons list, and gave me time to make a rational decision. He is an extremely zealous advocate for his clients, and I would not want to be on opposing counsel in a courtroom.
I highly recommend Tom Spiggle for representation on a variety of legal disputes, ranging from employment law, discrimination, family medical leave act, and human resource disputes regarding equitable benefits administration. I contacted Tom in a hail mary pass situation, where a legal remedy was my last option and time was of the essence. I wish I would have contacted him first as I'd have spared months of stress and anguish. Tom has a vast understanding of the law and its application, especially on employment and discrimination issues. Tom also made himself available and was flexible with client meetings, in efforts to save me missed time from work and commuting time.
I have to say I disagree with Shakespeare's plea to kill all the lawyers! Tom's fairness, flexibility, legal prowess and empathy saved me from considering desperate employment options without legal remedy. And he is kind, courteous and very empathetic to his clients' legal situation.
Tom was an extremely calm presence in the midst of a terrible personal storm! During a particularly turbulent period with my employer, I reached out to Tom for counsel. He reviewed my situation and offered me solid advice while I was overtly emotional. He helped me remain calm and collected and I firmly believe that due to his advice, my job was saved. He was attentive and available exactly when I needed him and I sincerely appreciated that considering how fast these situations move. Do yourself a favor and consult with Tom first. He is an outstanding employment attorney!
During a time of high emotion and frustration, Tom responsive and knowledgeable. I was impressed and surprised by his accessiblity. I appreciated his time, candor, and experience!
I met Tom during a challenging time in my career. He helped me negotiate a reasonable severance package and took a great amount of stress off my shoulders in the process. Transitions rarely are easy and typically present significant (unanticipated) hurdles. Tom helped me clear as many of them as possible by keeping me informed throughout the ordeal, and I am very grateful. I would highly recommend his services.
Tom guided my wife through a difficult work situation arising from her hospitalization for complications during pregnancy. Tom impressed me with his legal knowledge and sound strategic advice, which helped my wife protect her legal rights without triggering retaliation by her employer. It was obvious to me that Tom has had considerable experience in similar situations, and that he understands workplace realities. Beyond his technical skills, we were grateful for Tom's warmth and empathy at a difficult time. I highly recommend Tom.
Tom was gracious, knowledgable, savvy and experienced in helping me to negotiate a severance package and resignation. He provided sound advice and was generous in responding to follow-up questions, as well as regularly checking in with me as negotiations progressed. He provided cost-effective service, yet kept me from making mistakes I would have made without his advice. His assistant was very gracious and responsive as well. I'd be glad to recommend him and his firm to anyone looking for similar help.
I recently consulted Tom Spiggle regarding an adverse employment/personnel action. Right from the start Tom recommended courses of action that eventually resulted in an outcome that was favorable to me. He was spot on about what to do and what not do, and, just as importantly, his support and advice gave me the confidence I needed to deal with a difficult situation. I highly recommend Tom Spiggle for handling employment matters. He was very understanding of my situation and was highly responsive to my needs.
