  • Ryan Christopher Plecha

    It is without hesitation that I endorse Tom. He is technically skilled in and out of the court room, while mastering the substantive law of bankruptcy. Tom's attention to detail is keen and his insight is invaluable. I have and will continue to recommend bankruptcy clients to Tom.

    I endorse this lawyer. Tom and I have worked together and on opposite sides in a number of matters. He is among the most knowledgable, conscientious, and pragmatic attorneys I have dealt with or observed in the field of bankruptcy law, and I have the utmost confidence and comfort level in referring clients or questions to him for assistance in bankruptcy and related areas of the law.
