The Right Lawyer for the job!
After my brother-In_law sat in MCJ for 18 months going through one incompetent PD after another I retained Mr. McClure. In just a few short months he was able to obtain a complete dismissal of all charges. All for a very reasonable fee. Something that four PD's were not able to do and countless private attorney's were not willing to do without charging an arm and a leg.

9 out of 11 charges dismissed
Mr. Thomas McClure, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me with all my Waukesha court cases and the process of getting through it. I am very happy with the results and I’m glad the judge is giving me a chance to make things right again. The probation will definitely help me continue to stay sober from alcohol and substances, which is a good thing. It’ll be better for me to quit drinking, not just to stay out of jail, but also for my health and future life as well. Thanks again for your help in all of this. For anyone that is looking for a very professional and skilled lawyer that can get you the best results, I would recommend experienced lawyer, Mr. Thomas McClure.

He won every Case
Mr. McClure is a phenomenal lawyer. 2011 I hired him because my son was unlawfully expelled from HS. He successfully and quickly win this case. 2015 my son was faced with a OWI, I am proud and honored to say Mr. McClure along with his unique abilities successfully won this case without going to trial. Having the confidence that I have in his Work, I encouraged my brother to hire him for a OWI in Minnesota, in which I am proud to say again, he successfully and quickly came out successful and put my brother mind to ease. I must add this was a difficult and complicated case. Mr. McClure approach to his cases are highly unique and I appreciate what he has done for my family. He is the Best in these parts and I recommend him to eveyone who may be in need of representation.

Tom McClure is a Great Attorney
I retained Attorney Tom McClure to represent my nephew in a dispute with an educational institution. Things had escalated very quickly and we were pleased with Tom's immediate attention to the situation. He dropped everything to meet with my nephew, review the facts, and establish a case defending my nephew. Tom remained professional and level-headed in heated meetings with the educational staff all while protecting my nephew's interests. I would recommend Tom without reservation.

Trustworthy & Effective
Attorney McClure represented our son when he was facing losing his license due to multiple traffic violations. He was successful in helping our son to not only keep his license, but in reducing some of the charges and points against him. His attitude of concern and wise counsel had an impact in our son's life. He is efficient and a very effective communicator. Most importantly, he is honest and a man of integrity. His rates were very reasonable. I would highly recommend him.

Best Choice I Could Have Made
I highly recommend attorney Thomas McClure. I was facing serious charges in my school job, and Tom took over control of the situation and got me out after months of diligent work. I know I can trust him in the future if needed.

Very Impressed!
My son was struck by an inattentive driver while coming home from work. I asked around and a couple that I trusted recommended Attorney McClure. They thought very highly of him. I now see why! The first time I met him, I was immediately put at ease. I could see that he was very knowledgeable, and experienced in personal injury cases. From beginning to end, Tom was always looking out for our best interests. He kept us well informed of any matters and processes that would concern our case. He was very fast to return calls. He was also very diligent and kept our case as a priority until he won. We received a tidy settlement and he was very fast to get our checks to us. I was so pleased with how he helped us and handled our case. He's a great Attorney! I am so thankful to have found someone that I could trust!

Fantastic attorney
Thomas McClure has been our family attorney for over ten years. He has done a fantastic job on every case we have hired him on. This includes multiple cases where he has worked out agreements for probation only and expungement. He has also beaten a trial case for a relative. He is compassionate, willing to work with you on payments, available at all hours and willing to put in a lot of work for you. He is an amazing attorney and person

My goto attorney for all legal matters, has always done an amazing job in everything I've needed him for!!!
Tom McClure has been my attorney for a solid decade now. He has gone above and beyond for me on more than one occasion and has always exceeded my expectations (I have quite high expectations) I don't believe any other attorney would have done for me what Tom has. That's why he is still the only attorney I use nearly 12 years later. He is also just an all around good guy with good character & values, that means a lot to me in the people I do business with. Thank You Tom, for everything. It's reassuring knowing I've got a guy like you in my corner whenever I need legal assistance!!

Best possible outcome
I hired this attorney after an incident occurred in a state I do not live in so i was relying on online services to find an attorney. Tom was very friendly and knowledgable he responded to all questions and concerns thoroughly and quickly. And in the end he got me the best possible outcome from a bad situation. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His fee was also a flat fee with no surprises.

An excellent lawyer
Attorney McClure helped a friend of mine get very serious criminal charges dismissed. I then hired him. He was there for me every step of the way. He listened and gave me hope. He did a great job for me, quickly and at a good price. Unlike other lawyers where you walk into their office and feel like just a number in a sea of clients; Attorney McClure treated me with respect and dignity and at the end of my case got a GREAT result for me! Highly recommend to anyone!

General practice Attorney | Dec 10
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Thomas McClure is a very capable and skilled attorney. I knew Tom before I myself went to law school. I have known of Tom's professional work and results for over three decades, often recommending him to clients needing help in personal injury, criminal, contracts, litigation of all sorts, including traffic matters. When I came out of law school 10 years ago, as a second career graduate, I found Tom more than willing to act as a career mentor. His range of knowledge and procedure is epic and always growing. He is always personable and professional with others. I am aware of the respect and admiration judges and other attorneys have for Tom's expertise and his always "give more than you have to" work ethic for his clients, the high level of client service and his consistently excellent results in court. He is the high caliber of attorney that clients and colleagues in the legal profession respect and admire. I would recommend him to anyone."
Criminal defense Attorney | Nov 25
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Tom for over 30 years. First, as a prosecutor in the District Attorney's office, and the for last many years as a fellow practicing attorney in private practice. Over the years Tom and I have participated in representing clients who were involved in the same matter. These cases were long, difficult, and complex, and required a great deal of skill and judgment. I can say without hesitation in each of those instances his clients were very pleased with the work that he did for them. Tom is a very knowledgeable and skilled lawyer, whose negotiating skills, I believe, are second to none. To every person who is looking for a highly skilled lawyer, who will work hard for them and always give it his all, I can recommend Tom McClure without reservation."
