I contacted Tom through a site on the internet. I hired him after we had talked in person and he told me what he could try to do for me. He was very good at explaining the details of my case. He explained what to expect when I was going through the various stages of the case. I liked his personality and the way he was patient when I would get nervous or even scared at times when I didn't understand the reasons for parts of the case. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case and I am very happy with Toms' help.

I worked with Mr. Monks in relation to a motor vehicle accident and was very pleased with his work. I was kept well informed of any and all proceedings and updates in my case and he helped me through any confusion and misunderstandings that I had. I would highly recommend him.

I hired Mr. Monks for a personal injury case against a large corporation. Not only did Mr. Monks, and his legal staff, give me the courtesy of letting me know all information regarding my case at every turn, but was completely prepared and anticipated the corporations every move. He will always tell you where you stand whether it be good or compromised. He is the epitome of professional and is a kind human being. If you are lucky enough to have him take your case, please be assured, he will fight it every step of the way. The same standard also applies to his legal staff. Mr. Monks sets the standard for how attorneys should be.

I have had several professional interactions with Mr. Monks, and am familiar with his legal ability and ethical standards. His legal skills are very high, and he has always demonstrated great integrity. The keeness of his legal analysis separates him from other lawyers, as do his diligence and sense of fair play. I have the utmost regard for him as a lawyer and a person.
