I highly recommend Tom and all the lawyers at Gartenberg Howard. After my husband died in a trucking accident, I didn’t know what to do until I spoke with Tom. He filed suit for wrongful death and obtained a seven figure settlement for me and my children.
Throughout the process, Tom and his associates are professional but very caring and concerned for us. He always did what he said he would do and I always felt he was doing his best for us. We are all very grateful for everything he did.
When I recently needed a lawyer to help us, Tom is the only lawyer I considered.

Tom is one of the most competent, diligent and client focused attorneys I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Tom for any complex litigation or business dispute. Furthermore, I have witnessed first hand his particular expertise in medical malpractice and nursing home abuse cases. I would strongly recommend Tom to anybody in need of these services.

He is a brilliant trial lawyer with a thorough knowledge of the law and of his client's claims and he has an extraordinary abilitiy to make that knowledge accessible to the Court, to a jury and to his clients. He is compassionate and passionate in his work. I highly endorse his work.
