Tom, to my knowledge, is now retired. However, in researching his replacement I found bad reviews for him on this site. The fact is, he was known as one of the best lawyers in the state! He handled my divorce case very well. I was at risk of paying half of my ex's $80,000 in student debt. Tom's preformance during the divorce trial was the reason I was only ordered to pay a couple thousand of it. He was expensive, but you get what you pay for! That said, he didn't charge me for every phone call and email either. This was in 2008.
He's also a calm guy with a good overall personality. I could understand not liking him if you were up against him in court though.

I had the unfortunate experience of using this attorney. Didn't listen to me or my wishes. He advances his ideas with no regard to what you, as a client wants accomplished. Don't waste your money. After using other attorneys I have come to understand the difference between those who care about their clients and those who don't. Me Sleik likes to pad his bank acct and after that's accomplished, he doesn't like to be bothered with actually doing his job. Worst money I've spent I think maybe my entire life.

I would have been better off representing myself. This guy is a pompous conceited person who thinks he is above his clients. He treats you with disrespect but loves your checkbook. Stay clear of this attorney. He is only concerned about his checkbook. He will tell you names of his other clients and tell you personal details of their cases. Very unprofessional and unethical

Tom is/was one of the best family law attorneys in SW Wisconsin. No attorney can satisfy all his/her clients but the negative reviews of Tom by one or more clients on this site are not at all representative of how attorneys in the community or most of his clients regard him. There are good reasons he won the professional recognition he did and why he was able to charge a premium rate for his services.
