I cannot say that I “technically” hired Thomas Simpson; however I have two records indicating that he represents me, and he certainly lined his pockets with money in assets that belong to me.
He seems to have the ability to “win” a case on personal influence rather than facts and evidence, so that would be a plus for those of you who have none, or poor ones.
If you are looking for that creepy, bottom-crawling, ethics-free attorney – this is your guy.

Tom Simpson and his office of attorneys and support staff did a great job handing my divorce case. When a contentious issue came up, they were available to calm my fears and talk me through it. Sometimes you have to do a cost-benefit analysis, and sometimes it's not worth fighting every fight. I saved a lot of money focusing on what mattered, instead of smaller issues that made me crazy. It was comforting to know that Tom would give it to me straight and help me make the right choices in moving through my case.
I think Tom and his attorneys would be great for any case, small, medium or large. They've got the experience and knowledge to go up against anybody. This really makes the difference when negotiations get tense. They settled my case and helped me move on with my life. I can't thank them enough!

Integrity in Spades!!
Integrity is the quality that stands out most for me when I think of my experience with Tom Simpson. Tom and his associates, as well as his support staff, displayed the utmost professionalism and care throughout my divorce. Tom displayed impeccable honesty whether it was in good news or bad news he may have needed to communicate. Tom never overpromised a potential outcome, and always gave me the reality of every possible outcome, both positive and negative. In my particular legal situation, Tom thwarted each and every attempt by opposing counsel for a litany of legal gyrations. Tom prevailed on my behalf in each and every situation.
Tom’s demeanor is warm, kind, reassuring, confident, and wise. These attributes became so helpful and welcomed during many of the highly emotional moments during this process. In addition, Tom always kept uppermost in his thoughts the welfare of my daughter. In every conversation and meeting, he first asked about my daughter.
Lastly, but certainly not least, Tom was always cognizant of expenses and made great effort to keep them at a minimum. I never felt taken advantage of or felt he took frivolous legal actions for his own financial benefit. This is a unique attribute in the legal world!!
I would, without hesitation, recommend Tom to anyone!
