Home Closing
Tom Sammons is highly knowledgeable and experienced. He is one of the best attorneys that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He will do his best to negotiate the best deal for you. Thanks to him, our closing process went very smoothly and even resulted in material cost savings for us. His fees are reasonable and I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell any type of home property. Thanks Tom!

Chapter 7/Real Estate
After speaking to three different attorneys requesting assistance in a complicated real estate issue. All the other attorneys seemed dismissive and uninterested in helping me. During my search I came across Tom’s profile. I scheduled an appointment to meet with him. During our meeting he laid out my options clearly. He was very patient and provided useful information. He answered all my questions (of which I had many). After spending months trying to make a decision on how to resolve my dilemma, I finally had all the answers I needed that was thanks to Tom. He made the whole process regarding my bankruptcy/real estate easier to go through. His assistance gave me ease of mind that I was going to have the best outcome for myself. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family should they find themselves in need of his assistance.

Tom was great to work with, he helped us with our closing and was always responding immediately to our questions. We had many concerns which he took time to address and reassured us that all will be good and taken care of. He is very easy to talk to, and great at explaining things. We have and will be recommending him to others. Thank you Tom for everything

Highly Recommend Tom Sammons
Our experience in dealing with Tom has been nothing short of amazing. Our journey to working with Tom started with real estate woes that led to significant financial troubles for our family. We spoke with 4 attorneys before finding Tom’s information on-line. After the initial meeting with Tom, we knew were finally talking to the right attorney. Tom’s experience with real estate and bankruptcy law is impeccable. He was able to lay out our options in simple terms, but with a level of expertise and experience that told us he had a firm grasp of our situation, as well as how the laws would affect us. The attorneys we spoke with prior to Tom all required significant fees. Tom’s fees were fair and equitable, and did not have strings attached as we saw with other attorneys. He has always been straight-forward and up-front with us, and very responsive. We had done quite a bit of research into our options prior to consulting with him, and therefore had lots of questions and concerns through each stage of the process. He always took the time to explain even the smallest nuance of the law and what we could expect. We have recommended Tom to family and friends and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an expert and responsive attorney in the real estate and/or bankruptcy field. After finding Tom we finally felt like we had the answers we were seeking and could finally move on with our situation.

Estate Planning
We worked with Tom in creating a Family estate plan. Tom was knowledgable and experienced, he would point out items that needed reviewing that we had not thought of. He is patient, communicated with us through out the process, organized, and really worked with my husband and I to understand our needs. Tom is business casual which made us feel very comfortable talking with him. I would recommend Tom to my family and friends.

Support on trust planning
Tom is truly a lawyer acting in the best interests of his clients. He takes time to truly understand the situation and clearly explain options. When dealing with Tom, you feel like you are working with an expert - though his style may be a little more casual than the stereotypical attorney. We have used Tom for trust planning and updating and have referred several friends and family members to Tom - all were very satisfied with his work.
