An exceptional attorney
Mr. Thomas J. Connick is a World-Class passionate skilled legal advocate that takes special pride in protecting his clients and making things right. Tom has keen perception and unique abilities to cut through the complexity, remains highly focus in developing excellent strategies and skillfully presented my case with clarity, straightforwardness and most of all with comprehension. During discovery Tom unfolded layers of convoluted wrongdoings, deceitful actions, fabrication of documents, backdating and found evidence contradicting opposing party testimony. Tom has outstanding memory, he recalls even the smallest details. Tom is very skilled with structuring depositions and asking the right questions at the right time, he succeeded in obtaining testimonies supporting my case. Tom is a brilliant minded, highly intelligent attorney.

Review by Kim Wendel
I have availed myself of Mr. Connick's legal services repeatedly and have always gotten first-rate, top notch representation and consultations. He never hesitates to go the extra mile and my results have always been positive. His never-quit attitude and reasonableness earns him my respect and the respect of other attorneys.

Professional, Personal and Practical...
The way Tom Connick practices law is the way it is meant to be; Professional, Personal and Practical. Tom has represented me and my firm on multiple occasions for different reasons. His knowledge of the law and ability to communicate it effectively to us, as his clients, and more importantly to our clients, has allowed us to avoid unnecessary and costly lawsuits. Integrity and Character are the cornerstones of who Tom is; this is evident in his practice of law as well.

Tom has handled a couple of cases for my company over the last few years and has done an excellent job for us. He is agressive, yet fair. He studies and understands the case intimately so he can fight for us until a setlement is reached.

Old Spice deodorant class action lawsuit/Settlement
Connick law firm had myself and 100 plus victims removed from the Old Spice deodorant class action lawsuit. Connick law firm used myself and the 100 plus victims to get the old spice deodorant settlement amount. Connick law firm accused me of not communicating with their law firm. I stayed in constant communication with the lawyer and paralegal involved in the case. I have emails between myself and Connick law firm. I was never given the opportunity to provide my evidence to the court or judge before being removed from the class action lawsuit/settlement. Myself and the 100 plus injured victims are entitled to our part of the settlement because were used to get settlement amount. I will never waive my rights to my portion of the settlement. I need someone to help myself and the 100 plus victims removed from the Old Spice deodorant class action lawsuit/settlement get our part of the settlement. We was used as pawns to get a settlement amount and was never given our percentage of the settlement.

Response from Thomas Connick August 2, 2021
Connick Law, LLC successfully handled nearly 1000 Old Spice claims for those clients who participated in the REQUIRED claims process. For those, like Mr. Sanders, who either failed to participate or chose not to, their claims were dismissed without prejudice, after MULTIPLE WARNINGS AND NOTIFICATIONS. Mr. Sanders, specifically, chose not to participate, and was advised that he could get new counsel to prosecute his claim -- which he still can if he so chooses. We have confirmation of Mr. Sanders voluntary non-compliance in the claims process. All clients, the vast majority, that did comply with the claims process have been successfully paid on their claims. Thank you - Tom Connick
