Quick Expertise!
I needed a legal opinion on an employment contract that a potential employer had presented me with. I was referred to Thomas through the Milwaukee Bar Association. He gave me a detailed opinion on my questions, and he was speedy about it! I would definitely recommend him to someone with questions related to employment law.
