I had a complicated issue and Mr. Thomas SanFilippo helped lessen that burden. I was extremely stressed about the situation but he was able to get it taken care of no problem.

Excellent work!
I was injured in an accident, which is never fun. But Thomas and his team went out of their way to help me through it. At first, I was unsure if I needed an attorney at all, but I can say that it was an extremely wise choice to hire him. Both he and his team went out of their way to keep me in the loop at every step of the process, and I could not be more pleased with the results. If you find yourself in this situation, give Thomas SanFilippo and his team a call!

Dedication
One of my friends needed someone to take care of a charge that could have ruined any future career she might have. I referred her to Mr. SanFilippo. The case was out of state but Thomas and his firm still did everything they could in order to help her fix this. He went out of his way to speak with her on the phone about the situation and find the right lawyer for her in Oklahoma that would handle the case in the best way possible. The issue has since been resolved. It is genuine dedication like this that makes me want to do repeat business with this firm. Thank you for all your help!

Great experience for traffic violation
The law firm was very helpful for my traffic violation. They were able to meet at a time that was helpful for me, explain the process, and got my ticket thrown out. His team was able to get this done in little over a week, and I was greatly appreciative.

Couldn't care more!
Thomas is very personable, approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys in the trade. He is also a staunch, steadfast and passionate advocate when you are dealing with a case like mine that was sensitive to work transportation. He is a great when confronting non-reasonable people. When the other side tried to use coercive tactics, Thomas pushed back with even better ones.

Exceptional Work On A Difficult Case
Thomas SanFilippo went above and beyond to get a positive result on a real estate transaction that went bad. It took experience, skill and dedication to track down a seller that had moved out of state and force the seller to comply to the letter of the contract. Thomas did a great job and delivered the just result we were looking for.

Dilligent and Honest
Thomas Sanfillipo heard my case and listened to my situation. His team offered a fair and reasonable assessment of my case and laid out a plan for resolution. After only a couple months they were able to achieve a reasonable settlement. Communication was easy and fast and they were upfront with all charges and expenses that would be occurred. I highly recommend their services.

very smart, thorough, and attentive attorney!
Mr. Sanfilippo has been my attorney for many years. He has gone above and beyond for me since the very beginning of our relationship with legal matters as small as traffic violations to bigger items such as personal injury claims from a car wreck I was involved in. He is knowledgeable and informative, always updating me on any case he has worked on for me. While he is very bright and well rehearsed in the legal system, he is wise enough to seek the assistance of a co-counsel in specialty cases. I am recently involved in such a specialty case, and he has brought on another attorney who specializes in the particular field surrounding my case without extra cost to me. My point is, he will go the distance to ensure your case has a positive outcome for you. As a St. Louis native, he is well connected and very comfortable and familiar with the not only St. Louis but also all of Missouri and Illinois. I highly recommend Thomas Sanfilippo, without reservation, for any legal issues you may encounter!

Great STL Lawyer
Mr. SanFilippo is a fantastic lawyer with much knowledge of many areas of law. He kept me updated on my case, definitely had experience handling similar cases, which was apparent through his ability to articulate my case's arguments in court (and win), and was always clear and up front about my attorney fees--no hidden costs. Would definitely recommend!

Great legal representation--would recommend to any of my family or friends
Tom was not only dedicated to my case, but understanding of my situation and the personal effects going through this process was having on me. He was not only a great lawyer in the courtroom but also out of the courtroom--he kept me updated, and responded to every one of my calls, even when there were no new updates. Knowing that my case was in his hands made me feel comfortable and confident, unlike some other attorneys I have hired who have made me feel uneasy about letting them handle my case.

Great Legal Counsel
Everyone in the office was very friendly and kept me informed every step through my case. They were trustworthy lawyers who were very knowledgeable on the subject matter and really helped me. I highly recommend contacting Thomas for any of your legal needs.

Personal Attorney, Will Fight for YOU
Tom is not only an extremely intelligent attorney with great experience and a winning record, he also provides the assurance you need to know that you will be taken care of. Tom was always willing to listen and do anything in his ability to better my situation. Trust is something that can be difficult to find in a successful attorney. With Tom, I knew that I had a competent attorney that I could rely on.
