Attorney Endorsements

3 total 

  • James Fulton Stanley III

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Dave Thomas for over 25 years. No one knows the criminal justice system better than Dave. He has extensive experience on both sides of the courtroom, having served as the elected DA for years and now with years of experience defending criminal cases. I have observed Dave making presentations in court, observed him interacting with and making his case to prosecutors, judges and opposing counsel. Dave is an extremely effective lawyer. He has the ability to quickly identify the issues in a case and then work to resolve or defuse them to achieve the best possible result for his clients.
