 A seasoned attorney, litigator, and consultant. I am an expert in software licensing, product monetization, and open source software issues. I help companies, both large and small, protect and license their intellectual property. 

I've held several different positions in my career: prosecutor, software engineer, staff attorney and general counsel. 

I have helped start up companies stay out of trouble with the SEC, won jury trials, and reported a security breach in bar exam software to the State Bar of California. My passions are to help bring excellent products to market, zealous advocacy, and quality teamwork.

Made all the difference in prevailing in court
Tomas supported me through a process that could have been handled without representation but that could have easily become mired in an extremely stressful back-and-forth trial that I might have lost. With his help and representation, an agreement was reached without going to trial that gave me everything I needed for peace of mind. That would never have happened without his expertise. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

More actions than words
Tomas is an excellent lawyer. I had an unfortunate running with the law (racial profiling) that resulted in some trumped up charges. Tomas was low key, calm and collected. When I saw him at court he was reassuring and came out with a good offer from the persecutors. I would recommend Tomas he is an outstanding lawyer.

In Tomas I Trust
I originally contacted Mr. Flores with questions regarding a business I was starting. His responses were always prompt and well researched. As a result of the positive results I had, I began consulting with Mr. Flores on a wider and wider array of subjects. He has helped me many times over the years and has become indispensable! He is my go-to guy with all of my legal questions.

I asked Tomas to write a motion so I could get off of probation early. He responded quickly and answered my questions. I would recommend this attorney.

Endorse Tomas
Computer fraud Attorney | Apr 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. This lawyer's contributions to this site are invaluable. I happily endorse this lawyer's work, ability and charity to those asking for advice. Further, I like to endorse good lawyers, because I find the AVVO rating system to be dishonest and corrupt. Frequently, disgruntled litigants on the opposing side (not your clients) will bash a lawyer on this site, pretending to be "your" client. When this situation is brought to the attention of AVVO, Avvo refuses to do anything to investigate and remove the false, slanderous "client" reviews. AVVO is a mean petty internet blog site trying to make money off of lawyers, and does not care if the public receives truthful information."
