    I have worked with Tom Manos on a couple of projects and have become a better lawyer and businessman for doing so. Tom has a great approach to legal problem solving, and genuinely cares about his clients' interests. What really sets Tom apart is his strategic planning. He recognizes and embraces the tactical side of practicing law, and devotes significant energy to making sure his plans and approaches are the ones best suited for obtaining positive outcomes for his clients. In sum, Tom Manos is a highly effective lawyer and I endorse him fully.
