    I have known Thomas since law school and he continues to "wow" me with his creative and zealous arguments. He always finds the angles other lawyers miss because he's not satisfied with the run-of-the-mill motions or arguments. He never mails it in and refuses to let the government push him around. You wont find him in the "Super Lawyers" ratings because he cares more about his clients than the recognition he deserves. If you or a loved one are charged with a federal crime, you won't find a better advocate than Thomas Wooldridge.
