  • Michael Bradley Love

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Tom and also have been on opposites of sides in USERRA, WLAD and COBRA matters. Tom is a very ethical attorney and his work ethic is second to none. Tom has provided tremendous support to our Veterans in assisting them with their legal needs and opposing discrimination in that regard. I would highly recommend Tom to any client in need of services in USERRA and other employment type matters.
