Great guy and even a better Lawyer
If you unfortunately did something that requires a Lawyer and legal advice Thomas is who you want in your corner for all aspects. He is very thorough, easy to reach, fairly priced and makes it easy for you to understand. Won my difficult case that we had about a 10% chance of. Highly recommend by myself and again thanks so much Thomas…

this is the lawyer you want
Thomas was always available to chat if I had any questions about my court date or the process of the court system. He was always updating me on what was going on and what could possibly happen next. He was smart and ready for any possible way the DA could turn things around. I had no idea how the legal system works or what to do. Thomas was always on top of showing me he was ready for anything and making sure I knew what was happening. My outcome was not expected and was more than we hoped for! I highly recommend Thomas. He is a godsend to the Bay Area!

Very satisfied with his knowledge and expertise.
I found Mr. Daly to be kind and caring. Thomas as he preferred to be called treated me with respect and sensitivity. He listened and understood my situation and was able to immediately assess the environment necessary to seek a positive resolution to my concerns. Even before interacting with the opposing counsel, Thomas was able to make simple, yet effective recommendations which facilitated an amicable resolution to both parties with the least amount of friction and push back. I would recommend Mr. Daly to others with no reservations. Thank you.

Professional, personable attorney
I could not have asked for a more accessible attorney to represent me. Anytime that I had a question, Thomas was able to respond via text or phone. I was very happy with the outcome of my case, and Thomas made it clear the pros and cons of our potential actions. I would highly recommend Mr. Daly.
