VERY Dependable and Excellent Criminal Defense Lawyer
Mr. Rounds came through for me in a variety of cases, he was able to get a multiple count traffic ticket dismissed, and when I again asked for his services, he also assisted me in my DUI case that was much more extensive than I had known at the time of my arrest. It was simplified and charges were dropped while others were reduced. I appreciated his thorough communication with me on my cases, which was something I had heard many lawyers in this city did not practice. I am so grateful, and I would 100% recommend Mr. Rounds for any traffic/DUI case. You will be in good hands.

Brilliant Lawyer!
Mr. Thomas Rounds was fabulous handling a complicated case of misdemeanor and a master not only by overturning the charge but also by doing it so in time record. Mr. Rounds was very attentive, kind, prompt to respond to all questions and easy to reach. Words can’t describe how thankful my mother and I are to him. We highly recommend him!
