Excellent Experience
I never needed an attorney before, so I was hesitant to call one. But after contacting several law firms, I finally found Mr. Anderson. I was very impressed with him. He was approachable, kind and professional. It was the best call I ever made! Mr. Anderson was prompt, personable and great to work with. He took care of everything for me. His expertise gave me confidence and I would highly recommend him. It was a positive experience for me. He has excellent negotiating skills and very knowledgeable.

Effective, professional and just plain smart!
I am very grateful that I found Tom Anderson to represent me in my complex legal case. The stakes were very high, the situation seemed intractable and unlikely to end well for me, and I had little confidence that I would find a way out. Other attorneys that I had contacted offered what seemed to me “cheap tricks” or strategies that would have dragged the matter on for months in litigation with uncertain outcomes. Tom, on the other hand, went straight to the relevant statutes and built an airtight case from the start. When this was communicated to the opposing party, I avoided the expense and stress of litigation and the matter was settled out of court and 100% in my favor.

Excellent, Effective Lawyer
Mr. Anderson,has helped me with many business and real estate matters. He is knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, and kind. In my case he displayed patience in a volatile real estate dispute and was aggressive when necessary. He was always easy to reach and communicated back right away by phone and email, especially in time sensitive situations. I appreciated his dedication to my case and his overall professionalism.
