    I had the pleasure of working with Tom on several complex title matters. I quickly came to admire his depth of knowledge, sharp attention to detail, and astute analysis. I heartily endorse Tom to anyone seeking thoughtful representation.

    If I could endorse Tom for all of the things he does in his office I would. Thorough, knowledgeable but open minded to opposing points of view. Scary good at risk assessment.
