Attorney McNamara is not only a great lawyer, but a friend. He cares about his clients and makes himself available for counsel. I would recommend him in the future!

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Tom McNamara is highly skilled in many areas, and particularly in sexual abuse cases. Our paths have crossed while we were both in the trenches on these cases and I have been impressed over the years at his handling of them. He is truly a gentleman and an asset to our profession. It has been an honor to know him.
