Attorney review
Mr. Thomasian helped me out in a time of need and distress, me knowing only a certain amount of how the legal system works, Tom was there In my corner. He stood to help me through a tough and nerve wrecking battle. Without his help I wouldn’t be able to be in the position I am today, thank you for all your help and support throughout this process! I highly recommend Mr. Thomasian as top rated attorney for all your legal needs.

Excellent Service
I highly recommend Tom and am confident in his expert representation for any legal matters. From the first call, he was on top of my needs. I recently moved to Florida and needed an expungement in Rhode Island. I called his offices and left a message with my name, what I needed and my phone number. On the initial call, he had already looked up my record, had an answer for me and a very reasonable quote for services. I didn't even need to travel back to Rhode Island saving me both time and money. He was responsive, professional and reassuring throughout the process. I will definitely rely upon him again for any legal matters.

Excellent Defense Attorney. Quality Service
I found myself in a difficult situation when I began searching and researching for a Defense Attorney. I later came across Mr. Thomasian and reached out to him for consultation and guidance. He listened to my story and without judgment accepted my case and got hired. From the very moment, Mr. Thomasian and his staff acted nothing but with professionalism and excellence. The very first phone call was welcoming, not to mention, every phone call, text messages were answered at anytime of the night or day when I needed them. Mr. Thomasian updated me every step of the way whether emails to phone calls with the process of the case especially during these hard times with COVid. He handled my case with ease and the process was as swift as can be. My case was dismissed in a short period of time and is currently in the works by Mr. Thomasian of getting it off my record. I would recommend Mr. Thomasian to anyone and hands down the best lawyer in New England who still asks me how he can further assist me when he has already accomplished everything. Mr. Thomasian is affordable and is for the People not for the money. Low budget families, or low income have no worries because Mr. Thomasian will work with you and for you. Mr. Thomasian is well respected and well known and deserves the recognition not to be underrated but appreciated.

Tom Saved My Life
Tom was very accommodating and was able to schedule a late consultation due to work hours. He could tell I was extremely nervous and anxious and quickly turned that around. I had no idea what I got myself into and he was able to break it down for me, handed me pen and paper to make sure I had my notes written down and explained the situation. I had two cases: criminal and civil. Tom got the criminal DUI case dismissed/expunged - civil case down to the lowest charges and got five other charges dismissed as well. He was there for me every single step of the way and answered all my emails/texts. I was a nervous wreck, Just am, and he professionally dealt with that the entire way. I am forever grateful for Tom Thomasian.

Best Lawyer you will find
Mr. Thomas Thomasian came recommended to me through a friend in law enforcement. I have never been in need of 1 before and didnt know who to turn to. I called, and we met for a counseling and he broke my situation down for me. I ended up hiring him and I dont know where I'd be if I hadnt. Every step of the way, he was there. I'm self employed, my stress and anxiety was off the charts. A nightmare you cant wake up from. I thought I was done for. Mr Thomasian made the entire process virtually painless. He kept me informed, he handled everything. I'm happy to say I could not have asked for a better result, and his price was extremely reasonable. I was actually pleasantly surprised.

Refusal of chemical test and dui
When I met with Tom it was the day after I had received the charge noted above. Tom was very friendly and understanding to my circumstance . He thoroughly explained the process. I had no prior knowledge to the court system before entering in his office. He reassured me on multiple occasions that things would work out. After the days in court , Tom was able to get the dui dismissed as well as other charges along side reducing the time the court wanted for consequences standard for refusal of a chemical test. I would recommend him to anyone. He’s very thorough, detailed oriented and down to earth. Thanks again !

The best defense!
My wife found Tom online after reviewing all of his reviews on goggle. Tom and his team sprung into action immediately during my incident and get me a forms all on the way. His prices were very reasonable and the results were tremendous . I honestly would’ve lost my license for three years if Tom and his team did not represent me with my defense

Attorney T Thomasian
I highly recommend Attorney Thomasian without a second thought. Even upon my initial inquiry, attorney Thomasian responded quickly as well as listened, intently listened along with his business partner and intern. Throughout the process that ended up taking longer due to circumstances, he kept me informed, answered the vast number of emails and questions wether they were simple or more complex. His responses were clear and concise to which I understood easily. He also worked around my schedule in order to meet with me regarding the case. A long drawn out case can be emotionally draining and he was able to note the stress through an email and took the time to speak to me over the phone. Through his kindness, understanding, and humor he assured me that he would do what it took to resolve the case in our favor. If the above is what you are searching for in an attorney, I urge you not to hesitate in contacting Attorney Thomasian!

Definitely the right lawyer
Literally everyone in the city knows him, he's cool with the court, he's confident, and he's quick at figuring out where in the case you are innocent and how to prove it. He won for me my case! Easy. I wouldn't even call anyone else, his price was fair, I thought.

Exceptional Service
I highly recommend The Law Office of Thomas C. Thomasian, Esq. I was an out of state client but I still worked with Thomas C. Thomasian directly to get my issue resolved quickly and professionally; typical email response time is under 24 hours and he was available for phone conversations whenever I requested. I had a lot of questions, and not a single one when unanswered. My experience with the firm leads me to believe that Thomas C. Thomasian cares deeply and works diligently for each client .

Review
Attorney Thomas Thomasian was impeccable with his work and ethics. I cannot say enough good things about him, from his attentiveness, confidence, calming, and caring demeanor. He is very responsive and got better results than I thought possible. He had my case dismissed on the trial date. I would highly reccommend this attorney
