Phenomenal Work
I just want to extend my gratitude for all the work and hours you have put in during my son's case. Thank you for working diligently with me, especially from across numerous states. Your communications were always professional to my many texts, while going thru this process. There were long sleepless nights, but you raised up my son's hope, to be wiser, and make better choices in life. Again, I thank you greatly for all you’ve done and wish the best upon your endeavors.

Excellent Attorney
First met Mr. Thomas during a workshop he conducted at a National Conference. At that time I was impressed with his knowledge and his straight forward communication style. A year later we needed an attorney to put together a package for presentation to the Parole Board. Thankfully we decided to hire Mr. Thomas. He was always honest and direct with us, he was very candid about what our expectations should be. Mr. Thomas kept in close contact with us, gave us excellent direction on actions we needed to take and the final result was an extremely positive outcome for our family. He told me once that he "did not like to lose", he didn't.

The best
I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Thomas and couldn't even imagine what would have happened if I did not make the right choice of lawyer. One of the very few lawyers still out there with focus on service and truth and not one money. Apart from being honest, service oriented and good-hearted, Mr. Thomas is really smart. He helped in a very difficult case while all other attorneys I spoke to who were more experienced and expensive said I have no chance of winning and was even advised to apply bankruptcy. Mr. Thomas did a real full free consultation with going through all the documentation, re assured he can help before charging me anything and stood by his word and got me out a very serious trouble. I lost for words to thank him. All praise to our creator.

Very knowledgeable
I hired Mr. Thomas to represent me for 2 traffic tickets violation. He was able to get one of my traffic tickets dismissed and the other traffic ticket fine reduced by $1000. Therefore, I only paid $400. He is very knowledgeable and will do all he can to acheive the best outcome for his clients.

I cannot say enough positive things about Mr. Thomas - He handled a complicated probation violation and was able to get a favorable disposition. He was attentive, thorough and dogged in coming up a beneficial resolution. Mr. Thomas always kept me informed throughout the process and was forthright concerning the potential outcome. I would highly recommend him.

I wish we didn't need the services of attorneys, but I am glad there are young people such as Mr. Thomas who have chosen the profession. Highly intelligent, diligent and with a moral compass that requires him to do his best for his clients, he still inquires about me long after my case was resolved. Just sign me, Grateful.

Good guy
Defended me in a pre-warrant hearing which lead to the denial of issuance of a warrant. Even though I wasn't scheduled to have a public defender for another two weeks, he came in and defended me successfully. My one issue is that he seemed to lack confidence and spoke in a nervous, subdued voice...but then again in the Deep South you don't want to come off as the cocky African-American amongst judges who are likely from conservative, sheltered (read: "racist") upbringings with too much power to have a healthy ego. Also, at the end he told me I "got lucky" would be understandably offensive to some people. Otherwise, he's the best you can expect to get for little to no cost.

Unresponsive & Unprofessional
Thomas failed to provide accurate legal advice about what to expect in my case. He also failed to provide timely information about the status of my case. When questioned, Thomas was condescending in his responses and very negative about potential outcomes. Thomas also asked for more money after giving poor legal advice. Because Thomas' poor service, he was let go. After which, he failed to return all the documents and medical records I provided him. Thomas nonchalantly blew-off his poor recordkeeping practice as a so what, "ultimately you may have to request the records again." I definitely would not recommend.
