The Best!
Mr.Essex has been my attorney for a long time, at least 10+ years. He has always been dependable, upfront and honest, a plethora of knowledge and most importantly, caring. He's been there for my family every time we have needed him, everything from traffic violations to criminal law. He's never been judgemental, just honest. Mr. Essex, thank you for all the times you've helped my family and I out, you've never let us down! You are appreciated more than you know!

Great Attorney
I went through a divorce that included my children, I'm happy to say that thanks to Thomas Essex , I have custody of my two children and the divorce wasn't the nightmare I thought it would be, and the pricing is more then fair.
