  • Joseph A. Lavigne

    Tom is an outstanding attorney. I had the good fortune of working with him on a litigation matter and he proved himself to be both an expert in the field and a true gentleman. I was able to see first hand how hard he fought for his client and know that he is the kind of attorney I would want by my side when the chips are down.

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Harrelson and I were partners in a previous firm and we have worked together on many cases, as partners and once we started our own firms. Tom has an outstanding knowledge of the law and trial practice and provides sound advice to clients under the most stressful circumstances. I still roundtable difficult issues with Tom and always come away from our discussions richly rewarded. Tom is also honorable and an attorney that you can trust fully, his word is his bond. I welcome the opportunity to work with him again.
