I came to Tom after I was arrested on multiple felony assault charges after a night of drinking way too much, resulting in me being completely out of control.
Tom took five felony charges, facing a minimum of 2 years in prison, and made it so that not only did I have ZERO felonies, but also zero jail time, and minimum probation. We ended my case with three misdemeanor charges... Which is an unbelievably huge deal. The thing about Tom that sets him apart from the rest is he genuinely cares about the well-being of his clients. On Thanksgiving he called me to make sure I was okay, knowing I would be alone on that holiday. He regularly called me and made sure I knew he was there for me. He was much more than a lawyer to me, he was a confidant. He checked in on me and made sure I knew he was on my side. Most lawyers only care about their commission and track record, but Tom is not one of those lawyers. He persistently made sure that I knew he was there to support me- not just legally, but emotionally as well. He asked how I was holding up and made sure I knew everything would be okay- Which I really needed at the time. Not only did Tom get me out of some serious legal issues- He helped me through some serious emotional issues as well. I can't imagine a lawyer doing a better job or caring more than Tom Bellwoar does.

I'm 27 years old and got a DUI. My first time ever in trouble. I was really scared. I was referred to Tom Bellwoar by a co-worker. I found out he is right in West Chester by the Courthouse and has years of experience in defending DUI's. He explained everything to me. Gave me a couple options and we decided on what was best for my situation. He showed up at my hearing and my court date, and made sure to remind me so I didn't miss anything. It was just nice having someone help you that knows what they are doing as I have no clue about how any of this works. I would recommend him to anyone as he is knowledgeable but also nice and I felt he actually cared about my situation.

I have used Tom for several matters over the years and he has always had the right solution and the situation was always handled in the manner he described in advance to avoid surprises. His personality also makes it a pleasure doing business with him. I will definitely continue using him for future needs.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
After having worked against Tom in my time as an Assistant District Attorney and with him since then, it is clear that he is a talented and experienced attorney who cares about each case he handles and each client he represents. Invested in this industry - Tom pays forward his experience to the other attorneys around him and to the clients who trust him - I easily endorse him. I
