My heartfelt thanks to you and why you should get Tom Oconnell...
If you are looking for one you can trust, a person who will make you understand how the system works and what you are WORTH, I highly recommend Mr. Tom O'Connell. Despite so many clients,he listens to you carefully. He is dedicated .I am new in this country, I lost my husband I don't know ANYBODY and I was not thinking well. I was lost but he was able to read my mind and he made me understand his position As a widow, I was put in a situation that I need someone to protect me and to guide me from what I am entitled to, he was there for me and he made it possible . Believe me, the outcome was a very very good one. With other lawyers, they took advantage of my vulnerabiltiy. Pay here..pay there..He is fair. that's why I am referring this good man !!!
