About Me

I believe every case is different not because the facts are different in every case but because every case has a different client and every client has different needs. Taking the time to find out these needs is the most important part of my job and I value working with my clients through an experience, which is usually alien to them, and ensuring the best possible outcome that can be achieved.

    Tom is a very intellectual attorney and seems to handle some of the most difficult criminal cases with ease. Through his years of experience in Snohomish County he knows almost exactly what the prosecutors will do before they do it. This makes him a very effective defense attorney and if you need help with a criminal case you need to call him.
