  • Neal Thomas Mcshane

    I have known Tommy since he started with the State Attorney’s Office for the Ninth Judicial Circuit of Florida (Orlando). He and I were opponents on numerous cases when he was a prosecutor. Tommy is an extremely diligent, hard-working, conscientious, open-minded and intelligent. He is very patient and highly professional in the way he handles his caseload and other attorneys. Tommy is always well-prepared for court, very respectful to members of the court and opposing counsel, always represents himself in a highly professional manner, and is a “genuine” and sincere person. Tommy is an awesome person and lawyer. He demonstrates the same strong work ethic in private practice. Prior to becoming a lawyer I was an Army Captain. Therefore Tommy and I have had numerous conversations about the military since he is currently a Captain in the military reserves. Again I would strongly endorse/recommend Tommy Feiter.
