  • Mark Aaron Kaiman

    Tom Mumford and I were on opposite sides of an employment-related dispute a while back. I was very impressed by his knowledge of the law, and his analytical skills. Even though we were adversaries, Tom was a real gentleman, and a pleasure to work with. Tom is an outstanding lawyer, and I strongly endorse him.

  • Karen Leigh Funston

    I am happy to endorse Tom Mumford (Michael T. Mumford.) I am his business partner and so I see his work on a regular basis. He is hard-working and enthusiastic and has real concern for his clients. When members of my own family have had problems and required assistance, I recommended Tom to them. We have been very happy with his service and with the outcomes he worked out. In every case, he has obtained more in damages than we thought would be available and served my family member well. Tom's skill and persistence make him the idea advocate.
