Appointed for family law
Tom was appointed to me. Gave me advice, walked me through the basic system, let me know what to expect from the judge, read the room expertly, and walked me through what was required of me. Answered a lot of my "what if" questions. I can't find anything to complain about, Tom explained things clearly for my first time in a court case.
