Mr. Thomas settled my case quick and for the price he quoted. The last time I used an attorney nothing got done until I paid almost three times what I was told it would cost. Mr. Thomas quoted a fee and did the work without asking for another dime. If, heaven forbid, I should need a lawyer again, I'll hire Sam.
I am so disappointed in the outcome of a divorce that Mr. Thomas handled for a family member. When he would return calls, which was rare, he went over old information for actions that had been promised months before. After submitting financial statements to him several times he still neglected to present it to the judge. This led to a monthly child support payment of $1400, which is yet to be resolved. He never was clear on dates of hearings, resulting in my family member completely missing one of the hearings. This was a no fault divorce. Mr Thomas had information that could have ended the case fairly for both parties. Instead I felt as if he didn't do anything he promised. After a two year long case, for which we longed for an ending to, Mr. Thomas failed to show up to the final hearing and advised my family member not to speak without him present. The judge was pretty upset that Mr. Thomas wasn't there and made a final decision mostly in favor for the plaintiff. The plaintiff was in contempt through much of the case and although he promised to file contempt paperwork against them, he never did so. I have never written a bad review against anyone. Although on a personal level Mr. Thomas is a nice guy, he was a disappointment for our family who wanted to see fairness for our family member, who is a disabled veteran and gets most of their money from a partial disability rating. I feel as if Mr. Thomas is very distracted by his personal life and in no way should be representing people unless he can give them his very best, which our family did NOT receive! If you are going through one of the hardest times in your life, an unfortunate divorce, I advise you to reconsider putting all your trust and money into this attorney!
Mr. Thomas helped me in a situation with my ex. He explained what would likely happen in the court with the judge. The outcome turned out to be exactly what Mr. Thomas predicted. Would definitely recommend this guy to anyone needing an attorney! Very impressed!
