I hired Tom to handle my case after consulting with several other local attorneys. He was by far the most attentive and personable of all that I talked to. He was great to work with and went above and beyond to get me a more than fair settlement. Tom was great at keeping me informed and making the process as easy as possible. His fees were more than fair and while I hope to never need his services again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or hire him again.

I was involved in a serious motorcycle accident on the freeway. I called another attorney first and they rejected my case so I called Tom. Tom came out and met me and my family. Withing a few weeks he got my Harley replaced. Tom was great. He returns calls even on the weekends. He works hard and in the end he got me a really great settlement. I highly recommend Tom to anyone involved in a motorcycle accident.

This is a review of services and my opinion, based off of my factual interaction and results with my case.
His fees plus the additional costs of printing at kinkos and the fake mediator he hired somehow cost me 78% of my settlement. This was taken out BEFORE the 14k medical bill/lien (fyi. Even though I wasn't at fault the insurance company wants the bill covered by settlement money).
He kept wanting me to accept the 15k settlement offers from the auto insurance company. I refused these lowball offers for two years. I would only hear from Tom after my bi-monthly insurance adjuster phone calls to check the status. Finally they gave in after realizing I wasn't faking it and offered 90+k.
I'm still undergoing treatment after the case was settled and I'm in debt. Because I was left with squat to pay for continuous physical therapy.
I advise you to negotiate in your contract to have the medical lien paid for before any lawyer fees are collected as well as itemized expense reports the same month they incur.
note: this was not a "lane splitting case". I refuse to reveal my full name due to Tom's history of posting case/client information in his review rebuttal.

Hiring Tom was literally the best decision I have ever made in my life. From start to finish he was there. Right from the start. From personally driving out and meeting me in the hospital and spending 2 hours in my hospital room to completion of my case -Tom was there. In the end I received an excellent settlement. I surely hope I am never in an accident again but if I am he will be the first person I call. Hire him. You will not regret it.

I can't thank Tom and his staff enough for all of their help in processing my case. After my motorcycle accident, Tom came to the hospital where I was recovering from multiple injuries. Tom and his team were always professional and supportive and returned my (endless) calls in a timely manner. From beginning to end, they were incredible. The last thing I needed to worry about was the stress of dealing with the legalities of my accident. I would highly recommend the Reinecke Law Firm to anyone in need of legal counsel.

My husband's case was settled very professionally by Tom.
He did a good job of keeping in touch with us thru the process. Happy with his firm (and his staff is excellent too, very friendly). Highly recommend.

Last March my husband broke his wrist in a motorcycle accident...9 screws and a plate later, we were being hounded by insurance companies and hospitals. When these things happen, the bills are kind of a mess - He had been to the ER, an ambulance, three different hospitals for treatment and surgery, and physical therapy. These all come with different bills and different accounts. It's a huge headache.
I came across The Reinecke law firm website and we had a consultation with Mr.Reinecke himself. Mr. Reinecke accepted our case and from that point forward he was the point person for all calls, bills, questions and it was such a relief. My husband and I felt like it was all being handled and we could concentrate on his recovery and getting back to work.
He was very knowledgeable about the process, clearly answered all of our questions, and took care of EVERYTHING.
Highly recommended if you ever find yourself in this unfortunate situation!

I will keep this short.
I STRONGLY SUGGEST AVOIDING MR. THOMAS G. REINECKE AT ALL COSTS.
After a motorcycle accident in 2012, I came to Mr. Reincke as he appeared open, courteous, and extremely helpful according to personal phone calls and his website, but he soon turned into a cowardly attorney once his fees and costs are brought to attention. He will stop answering phone calls (he will have his many secretaries email you), he will try to do as little work as possible but take 45% of your settlement, based on his crafty designed retainer agreement, and in the end you will probably have been better off fighting the case yourself or with a more reliable attorney.
I eventually settled my case 2 years later, just to avoid having to go to trial with Mr. Reinecke because for the last year of my case I felt as if it was me vs. my attorney vs. the opposing party.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY HIS CUNNING WAY WITH WORDS AND RHETORIC, ***YOU WILL SURELY BE DISAPPOINTED***. I walked away 1 year later than my first settlement offer with ONLY $66 more than if I were to have settled last year. He turned into a careless, insensitive representative of my case and my long term injuries and I am glad to finally be done with this relationship.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND MR. THOMAS G. REINECKE TO MY WORST ENEMY...yes he is THAT bad.

If I can give it less than one star I would. DO NOT HIRE TOM AS YOUR LAWYER. He said all kinds of things and did none of them. I had to contact him constantly to find out the status of my case. He also said he would get my get my medical insurance settlement down to nothing, which didn't happen. He told me the case was a half a million to million dollar case and didn't get a 1/4 of that, and then he took as much from the settlement as I got. Do yourself a favor and find a better lawyer. Toms lies through his teeth, he will say anything whether it's about his 2 sets of twins or where he goes to church. This guys a hypocrite please don't have what happened to me happen to you. There are other guys out there that aren't looking to rip you off but rather represent you like you would expect them to.

I will try and keep this short, he said he would reduce his fees to 40% well after case settled, he charged me 45% on top of all of the other charges, (which I NEVER saw until after the case settled ! ) And then told me he didn't reduce his fees because he didn't charge me for "negotiating " the medical bill, There was NOTHING to it, he sent them a letter, and they accepted, I have talked to several lawyers and they said they don't charge for medical liens unless there are problems with the settlement WHICH THERE WAS NOT ! He charged me a lot of money for court fees etc ... and then didn't even go to court ! even though the other person was at fault and had really good coverage ($250,000 I was told) well he ended up getting more than me ! even though I was the one that was injured pretty severely ! I understand he had to pay fees upfront before case settled, but that does not give him the right to lie to me about the percentage ! Please look for someone else ! I have no reason to lie about this .... the amount I ended up with was NOT worth waiting the TWO and a HALF Years I waited, I probably would have gotten this amount from the insurance company if I didn't get (this) lawyer
