This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the pubic in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

I retained this attorney for a criminal case for my son. He was very unprofessional and lied to my family and I on many occasions. He was not working the case at all and we did not know until months later AFTER we hired an additional attorney.

I WOULD VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT CONSULTING THIS LAWYER. DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE AND RESEARCH. I had a simple drinking ticket. Solicitor offered me a deal I did not think was fair. I sought outside counsel, settled on Tom because he assured me he could get this mattered resolved with no punishment, or maybe a small fine. I paid him about 2.5 times what others quoted me. Did not hear from him for months. Get a call, he said he got me a deal that was acceptable to me. Said he would send the paperwork. No paperwork came. Months later, another offer. $500 more than the previous. I asked to see the paperwork. He did not respond. Months passed again. He told me that now all I needed to do was get an evaluation saying I didn't have a problem. I told him I would be on vacation and couldn't get it done in 2 weeks. I now have a failure to appear that I found out about in the mail. Contacted Tom. He was very rude and disrespectful, saying a 5th graded understood more than I did. Not only did he get me a failure to appear, but come to find he could not even get me a better deal than I could've gotten myself. I had no choice but to fire him and seek other counsel.

I first hired Tom when I was a senior in college and was cited for a DUI downtown (on my birthday!). He got reduced to reckless, and at a fee a College student could afford. Some years later a series of bad decisions had me caught up in a much more serious drug case. Tom was able to get my car - seized by the city - back for me, and ultimately the case was dismissed. Couldn't have asked for a better outcome and I never had the feeling he was judging me, which I did get with other attorneys.
