Stronly Recommend
I hired Tom to handle a recent divorce. Tom did a great job of guiding me toward taking the high road with a spouse and attorney on the other side who were insistent upon doing the exact opposite. His demeanor was kind and relaxed and he ultimately was able to work toward a reasonable settlement. I would strongly recommend Tom for anybody who needs reasonable, responsible, and effective representation.
