also known as Law Office of Thomas Baynton PLLC
How does someone choose the "right attorney"? I believe that the client must feel comfortable with the attorney, along with having confidence in the attorney's abilities in dealing with the issues at hand.
I specialize in criminal and bankruptcy law. I also handle divorce, license restoration, and debt settlement. I offer personal service and have been very successful in keeping my clients out of jail. In practicing bankruptcy law, in addition to guiding my client through the bankruptcy process, I offer advice to my clients on how to avoid various debt traps and how to live within a budget , but only if they want the advise. I respect my client's right to make their own decisions regarding their lives.
Come on in for a free consultation. I may not be the right fit for every person, but you will not get any high pressure tactics, and you can decide if me representing you and your family is the right decision for you.
Fixed (sometimes), Free consultation (30 minutes)

Tom is sharp. I roomed with him at trial college, and I am on a few list serves with him. He always "direct lines" any legal scenario right to the controlling issues, and is able to formulate the arguments for both sides, and of course, why his side should win!... Highest recommendation.
