Very responsive, professional, and assuring. Tom kept me updated every step of the way, going out of his way to ensure my awareness of each new development as my case was being resolved. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation; his trustworthiness and ability to navigate the complex court system put him a notch above the rest. By hiring Tom, I truly believe I received the best possible outcome.
Tom was recommended to me by a Whatcom county insider who has knowledge of the best DUI lawyers in the area. Tom returned my calls promptly and took a lot of time with me to walk me through the process and answer my questions. Knowing that I was anxious, he took time to call me back in the evening and while he was traveling because he knew I was concerned. He took the time to explain all of my options and made me comfortable about my situation and outcome. All of this occurred before I even hired him! Ultimately, I did not need the services of an attorney but had I needed one, I was very confident that I was going to get excellent representation and the result that I desired and deserved.
We found Tom after hearing about him as a rising star on talk radio in the morning. He was exactly that. Any time we met, it was easy to relax but also professional. I think that's what stuck the most was how easy it was to talk to him about something so embarrassing and uncomfortable. My case was drawn out a bit until we had all documents in order and could confidently take a plea. Everything he did was great and he was just a real pleasure to work with. Thanks Tom!
Tom worked hard on my case!! I would have lost my license but he won my case!! Can't thank him enough.. If I ever needed a lawyer he would be the first lawyer I would talk to!!! He had the knowledge and also kept me informed at all times..
when i go in trouble, i didnt know what to do or who to go to, thankfully i found Tom. Tom never oversold himself, he knew what he was doing and saying and got me exactly what he said he could and a little extra, i got to keep my license after a DUI that was awsome.
When I was arrested and found myself in a very difficult situation and didn't know what to do, a friend mentioned talking to Tom Lyden and I was able to immediately reach him on his cell phone at home...on a weekend!
After our first conversation I felt quite a bit better, and didn't feel like I had to cash out my retirement or call my (more responsible) family members in order to get the help I needed. Tom was able to help get me through the process of being charged with a DUI as quickly as possible with a very small amount of fear and hassle. I feel very fortunate with the way things turned out and I know that's because Tom (and his staff) did everything they could to ensure the best outcome I could get for my case. I would call Tom immediately if found in a similar situation.
Unfortunately I needed the help of a criminal defense attorney recently - I am very glad that I found Mr. Lyden and his staff. Immediately my mind was put at ease as my questions were answered and I was able to meet with Mr. Lyden at his office within hours. Throughout my experience the legal staff returned calls and emails promptly and would give me any updates I needed. Both Mr. Lyden and Mr. Rands were accessible by cell phone and text messaging any time I had a question. Ultimately we were able to close out my case with a much better resolution than I had imagined possible when this all began.
This is a top-notch law office - do not hesitate to call them if you need a smart, talented and understanding lawyer.
