I endorse this lawyer. Tom never failed to impress me with the knowledge he naturally holds of the inner workings of USCIS and the immigration laws of the U.S. His continuous connection to international matters through his work and travels have kept him consistently up-to-date with what is happening with immigration here and around the world. Would definitely recommend for immigration work and the variety of additional matters Tom is never afraid to take on.
