  • Daniel J. Winter

    Tom is a very ethical and knowlegeable lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with him at a previous law firm and have known him for almost 20 years. He is well-versed and experienced in personal and commercial bankruptcy, both as a private attorney and trustee. I recommend him without hesitation.
