  • Martin J. Champagne Jr.

    I have had the privilege of litigating cases and going to trial with Tom several times over the last 5-years. He is a gifted trial lawyer with a preternatural ability to win over juries and judges with compelling and powerful courtroom presentations. He has the ability to distill complex factual and legal issues into persuasive and easily understood narratives. Even though he has been practicing for more than 30-years, I have been amazed at the level of preparation he dedicates to everything he does in preparation for every aspect of a case. I haven't seen a harder working and more effective trial lawyer.
