When two out the 6 lawyers that I interviewed with pointed me to Tom, I knew he was the person for my case. After being through with my case, I can see why these people did the unimaginable as a lawyer - pointed me to another lawyer. There is absolutely no way that there is another lawyer in the world who could have done a better job on my case. There were even other lawyers in the court room who were there just to see the legendary Tom Pavlinic do his thing. I am ever grateful for the work that he and his crew put into my case. It's scary to think that a man could so easily be put in prison based upon what someone simply said he did. I truly feel for these people after being through it myself. The truth is, however, that if you don't have a good lawyer for these types of charges, you could very easily be falsely convicted. Compared to other lawyers, yes Tom was more expensive, but now I can see why. This all he does, and he doesn't have a million clients like other lawyers. His expertise is priceless in my opinion, and I do believe that I would have lost everything I had without him. I actually spent quite a bit of time at Tom's own house preparing for my trial. The fact that I felt that Tom was actually vested in winning my case was extremely comforting. What a terrific guy. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, and God Bless you!

Tom is an amazing attorney. He spent an enormous amount of time with me during my child molestation case. He traveled on many occasions from his office in Maryland to my home in NY. I traveled to his office on one occasion and he put me up for the weekend. It was very stressful. Tom was successful in getting a plea bargain which greatly reduced my time in prison. I am eternally grateful for his expertise and would highly recommend him for anyone who has a sex abuse case.

Having gone through what I did, I've learned many differences among lawyers. After Tom's took my case, I now realize that there is no one out there that is more dedicated and capable of helping people who have been wrongly charged with sex crimes against children. Its more than his job to help these people - it's his life and passion. I only wish there were more attorneys out there like Tom. He saved my life, and I am forever grateful.

When it comes to sex crimes cases, there simply is no one better. Tom has dedicated his life and entire to career to this area of law, and his ability to handle these types of cases is unmatched in my opinion.
