Tom received an AV rating from Martindale Hubbell’s peer review rating system – the highest rating available.

Great attorney!
Tom helped me with the acquisition of a new business. He was very professional and allowed me to go through the process stress free. He was able to negotiate a deal that saved me money and future heartache.

I was very pleased with the services I received from Thomas Stauch.
He helped me with legal matters in handling property in Medida, Mexico. He gave me the convidence that was needed to proceed with the sale of properties and was always available if needed.

Skeptical no more
My case was a legal malpractice case. I had very little trust for lawyers. Upon my initial meeting, I immediately felt that Tom was genuinely concerned about me and my situation. As they spoke with me, I knew that they would aggressively work in my behalf. They were committed and kept me informed as promised. I was pleasantly surprised that they treated me like a ‘person’ and not just a case number. They accommodated my work hours and met with me in the evening so I wouldn’t have to miss any work. Tom was extremely polite and always displayed confidence. I would highly recommend Tom and his firm without hesitation.
