Excellent service
I requested a phone consultation and Tom confirmed then called at the time we agreed to. Tom offered honest and transparent advice which I am using to further my case. I recommend Tom to anyone that has to navigate through the IRS to resolve their tax issues.

Got tax problems? You need Attorney Tom Groth!
I found out I owed taxes post-divorce, because my ex made many "mistakes" on the financial affidavits which reflected our tax burden. Tom filed Innocent Spouse paperwork with the State and Federal governments and he won on my behalf. It took a lot of time, patience and expertise on Tom's part, but he is knowledgeable and detailed and he knows how to get the job done. His track record is fantastic, as are his credentials. I highly recommend him.

Great Law Firm
I worked with Attorney Glouzgal & Groth on a house closing and they were both extremely helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. They made the process very easy to understand and answered all of our questions. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends! Thanks again!

Did a great job on my closing
Thomas did a wonderful job on my house closing. I was a first-time homebuyer so there were a lot of questions that I had for my lawyer and Thomas made himself available at all times to me. He is knowledgeable and thorough and got on top of my bank to ensure the paperwork was ready for my closing. I enjoyed working with him so much that I hired him to do some contract work for me, which he of course delivered in a timely manner. The contracts were professional, comprehensive, and covered me in forms of liability I didn't even think about. I highly recommend his services.
