  • John Oli Alvin Pinkney

    I endorse this lawyer. Tom is a lawyers lawyer. Tom and I just concluded a very complex federal court case involving sovereignty issues in Madera County. There were multiple parties and law firms adverse to our client not to mention complex and changing factual circumstances. Tom worked tirelessly every evening and weekend for months until we prevailed. Tom also worked hard in an effort to bring the parties together. But when it became clear that was not possible, he put all that he had into prevailing in court, which we did. I enjoy working with hard working, smart, creative and energetic attorneys. Tom has all of these attributes.
