Review of Thomas Hong
Thomas Hong was my attorney and did an outstanding job. He is the consummate professional and was always available to speak with me regardless of what I felt needed to be discussed. He truly was a zealous advocate for me. If I ever need the services of a lawyer again I want Tom representing me. He is not only an outstanding lawyer and officer, but an outstanding person. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney.

Endorse Thomas
Unknown Attorney | Feb 16
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Thomas is an intelligent and dedicated attorney. I endorse this lawyer."
Military law Attorney | Oct 06
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Thomas Hong is an exceptionally talented advocate and litigator. Tom worked for me for two years while assigned to the Army Trial Defense Service. During that time he demonstrated a mastery of courtroom tactics -- a talent he utilized to achieve excellent results for his clients even in the most difficult cases. For example, in one case I observed, Tom did a masterful job combining expert testimony with skilled cross-examination of untruthful police witnesses in order to achieve a just result. In every case, Tom leaves no stone unturned searching for the truth. He is smart on the law and has common sense -- critical traits for a litigator. Since working for me, Tom has gone on to master other areas of the law beyond military justice and continues to excel. I strongly recommend this attorney."
Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 22
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Tom is a thoughtful, concerned attorney. His character will carry him further than most any other counselor. It is more than obvious from his track record that Tom has the intelligence and work ethic of a top-tier lawyer (both as a prosecutor and defense attorney, trying cases all over the world). In my experience, the difference between the good lawyers and the great lawyers is this will to do more, and Tom has that will that not all lawyers possess. Tom will be a phenomenal success in any endeavor he pursues. I would not hesitate to hire put him on my team, no matter the issue."
