    I have been extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work alongside Tom for several years. Put simply, he is incredibly intelligent, extremely hardworking, and tenacious to get results for his clients. I'm proud to work alongside Tom, and I truly feel that he's one of best employment litigators in the state of Washington.
