With a new baby, my husband and I knew it was time to do a family trust. I was referred to Tom by a friend, and from the beginning I felt that we were in very good hands. What could otherwise be a complicated process went very smoothly and quickly. Tom was knowledgable, thorough and patient - walking us through all the various options and scenarios that need to be considered - a true professional. It was a pleasure to work with Tom and I can highly recommend him.

Though I really think this review should be 100% focused on Tom's ability to come through when needed, I feel like I should shed some light on "why" we needed Tom in the first place. Truthfully, I don't think we would have won without him, so a review is the absolute least I can do..
Long story short; my Grandfathers Estate was illegally misappropriated after his passing by his Ex-Wife. Since we live in Seattle, we didn't find out about it until quite a bit of time passed. So much so I wasn't sure we could do anything about it. Tom was one of the very first Attorney's I spoke to about the situation and after a dozen + more phone calls just like ours, he was the Attorney I chose to hire.
Tom was very knowledgeable, helpful, understanding, and truthfully WAY more patient than I could have ever been. Especially with a few situations dealing directly with people whom are "less-than-pleasurable" to deal with. Tom always held his ground, always communicated promptly, and was ALWAYS honest about possible outcomes of our case, whether good, or bad. Which isn't always easy to hear, but it's very much appreciated, and I admire his integrity, especially in his field.
You may choose any Attorney you'd like, but if you're serious about winning your case, I'd highly recommend Tom. Without sounding too much like a Sales Pitch, I truly don't think we would have won without him, and he's worth far more than his weight in Gold if and when you need a Estate Attorney. There wasn't a thing throughout our entire case I think he could have done better.
If you ever read this Tom, I thank you much my friend. I appreciate everything you were able to help us correct and your guidance, both as an Attorney, and a person, throughout the entire case. You were always able to see the bigger picture, keep me level headed, stay composed when most others wouldn't have, and last but not least, you were able to fulfill the ideals my Grandfather always stood for, by successfully completing our case.
We wish you nothing but the best in the future, thanks again Tom.

Tom was very efficient and knowledgeable about my trusts. He was well prepared in reviewing my old trusts and in making the necessary changes. He was very inclusive about all the different items/forms that needed to be signed by myself and trustee. I have recommended him to my friends.

I was referred to Tom back in 2012 when my mother passed away. There were many things that needed to be handled in regards to probate. During a very difficult time in my life Tom made it much easier for me. It is very important in these types of situations to have someone that has your complete trust and confidence. I have no knowledge of law, so everything to me was murky waters. I was a mess and Tom took care of everything. I am sure he had many other clients and cases he was working on, but he always made me feel like I was priority number one. He handled everything in such a timely and professional manner. I would suggest to anyone that needed legal help to talk with Tom. Any time I have had any questions or concerns in other legal matters, I have gotten in touch with Tom and he has always responded right away, and always calms me down and helps me out. I can not say enough good things about him, there arent many people I hold in a higher regard.

From my first conversation with Tom all the way through to the completion of a the management of a difficult trust, he displayed every attribute you could look for in a true legal professional. Where there was chaos he quickly established order. He has a remarkable ability to sort through complex complicated scenarios, identify the key points, and come up with effective plans. His organizational skills, attention to detail, quality of drafting, and ability to communicate are all exceptional. Being his client was an education, particularly in handling difficult situations and people calmly and constructively while always keeping an eye on what matters. He was truly a pleasure to work with and brought wonderful decency and intelligence to every aspect of his support of my family's trust. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and recommend him to anyone who needs help setting up or managing a trust.

Tom Rossmeissl is dedicated attorney. In the most extreme and ugly of circumstances, he has carried our family's burden on his back. Ours was a complex and heavily charged emotional case, involving probate matters related to a Wrongful Death case. He has solved numerous problems for us with apparent ease and overall sophistication. On a personal level, he has shown compassion and patience to the wide cast of characters in our family. He also has a talent for articulation in the courtroom, which is clearly evident in the reactions from his peers, and the results achieved. He is not merely a performer of law, but conducts himself as a true professional in all regards. He pays meticulous attention to detail, and amidst a seemingly dubious task, he somehow manages to share humor and delight in his resolve. While utilizing his extensive knowledge and experience, he consistently maintained and developed a close relationship with our family. Tom Rossmeissl posesses a high degree of ethics in legal matters, great care and consideration for all parties involved, and I would definately recommend his services to my friends and family.
