    I have known and seen Tom Mumford practice law for seven years. I am a fellow lawyer in the community. In my opinion, Tom is a wonderful attorney with great insight into the practice of Tort law. Tom has empathy and understanding for his client's suffering and plight. If I had a Tort law issue, I would not hesitate a moment to hire Tom to advocate for me. Tom is a true gentleman and yet a fierce and zealous advocate in the courtroom. I would endorse Tom Mumford to handle any Tort or Contract law issue anywhere in the State of Washington.
