Thomas was excellent with our case. He was our defense attorney in a telephone trial and countered every point the prosecutor brought up. He was completely prepared for our case and took time to explain to us honestly what would happen in the trial and with our chances. Whenever we called or emailed he always got back to us in a timely manner. We would definitely recommend and use his services again.
