Very thorough and professional. Took the time to answer all my questions in detail.

Tom Dunlap is a rare find in the legal profession. He is very knowledgeable, tactful and a very skilled attorney.
I know that Tom is in high demand, and I can see why. He made me feel like I was his only client.
Dedication, personal attention and an ability to explain the technical issues of law made Tom really shine against other attorney's I've worked with.
I cannot recommend Tom Dunlap enough! He truly does great work!

Tom provided advice on a complex case that we very much wanted to file against another company. His counsel convinced us to approach the case a different way. While the approach was not conventional, it was incredibly effective.

Tom was responsive to my questions and very easy to talk to. Unlike the first lawyer I worked with he handled the dispute without having to file a lawsuit and without three attorneys on the same case. Great work!

Tom is an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated lawyer whose expertise and attention to detail set him apart, particularly in the areas of intellectual property and civil litigation. I had the privilege of working for Tom years ago and fully endorse him as an attorney. He is truly focused on producing favorable results for his clients.
