This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
A censure or reprimand issued by the Supreme Court or the State Bar Court that is not a matter of public record unless imposed after the initiation of formal disciplinary proceedings. No period of suspension is imposed. The reproval may be imposed with duties or conditions.
Tom’s comment: “I was disciplined by the California State Bar in 1992 because I paid a referral fee to another attorney for referring a case. California State Bar rules a person paying a referral fee must 1. Get client's consent in writing 2. State terms of the referral fee 3. Referral fee paid must be added to the client's fee. All of the above were complied with, except while the client consented verbally, it was not obtained in writing. It was clearly a technical and not substantive violation.”

Tom is everything his website says he is, tenacious, prompt, well mannered, well spoken, well dressed. Everything is gone through with a fine tooth comb, no stone is left un-turned. Mr Medrano dots all his (i's) and crosses all his (T's). I fought a Life sentence for first degree murder and if not for Tom and his relentless team of professional's, I wouldn't be here today writing this post.
Thank you Tom from me and my family,
Believe me when i say Tom is a no brainer choice when it comes to fighting for your freedom.

Mr. Medrano represented me in a criminal threat case. He spent 3 hours with me during my consultation. He took the time to explain the laws surrounding the events, my rights as a witness and my options. Mr. Medrano is an expert and highly knowledgeable in his profession. Most important, he provide top notch customer service. He communicated with me via phone, texts and email which was very convenient with my work schedule. He was very timely with responding and updating me on my case. Mr. Medrano remained highly committed to my case through then entire process. He ensured everything worked out to my favor and in the best interest of me. I will recommend Mr. Medrano to anyone because I am confident he will do the best job for all his clients. I cannot thank you enough Mr. Medrano. You are the best attorney!
