Very effective & skilled at fixing problems
Tom helped me with a debt that was not mine. This hostile collection agency was after someone with a similar name, but they thought it was me. I kept telling them that they had the wrong person, again & again, but the calls kept coming. Tom made one phone call for me and the phone calls stopped. It took some paperwork to get this fixed, but it was worth it. Highly recommend!

A True Hero
Tom is the kind of lawyer that confuses you because he's the antithesis of the stereotypes. He's always available. He checks in with you. He takes time to go over every detail of your needs and your solutions. This man has changed our lives to a course of success. We will forever be indebted. We never thought we'd be out of a crushing financial hole. We were so depressed and hopeless, and after our first consultation with him, we walked out feeling like we were out of our hole. He spent two years with us helping every step of the way. He is the most honest and caring person. Thank you, Tom. Thank you so much. You set us on a path of financial success!

Tom has handled both business and personal legal work for me for over 10 years. He has handled each case in a most professional, straightforward and trustworthy manner. I would highly recommend his legal services to family, friends and business associates.
