    I had been dealing with a family court case since 2010 with a horrible person. Allegations of abuse and neglect false domestic violence reports calls to cps and law enforcement! I was in a fierce custody battle with a Habitual Liar. No evidence just accusations. Thomas A Neil rolled up his sleeves helped defend me against domestic violence trail that was dropped before trial date! He even defended me in criminal case started by the mother stating that I came to her home and assaulted her and I didn't even know where she lived! So as you can imagine I burned through my retainer quickly but Thomas Neil believed in me and even completed a disposition for more custody at no charge to me. It was written so well I went to court 08/2016 and finally received the custody I wanted and ran circles around her and her council and I was pro per. I highly recommend Thomas A Neil! Listen to his advice be honest and if he can't help he'll let you know. He will try his hardest to save you money also. He is a honest law abiding attorney... I know that sounds hard to believe but I swear to you its true!!! If your being dragged through the mud and your not doing well and you know your a good person dealing with someone horrible like myself please call him you will not regret it! I don't call him Thomas A Neil my attorney... I consider him a friend and family member!!

    I hope to see him soon.

    I called him and told him to expect an email from me.
    I expected no more than an O.K. from him.
    What he did was say let us talk and was kind enough to discuss the problems that arise for our family. He was kind, he was attentive, he certainly appeared well versed in his child custody field. I think it's going to be a good meeting .

    Mr Neil was my divorce lawyer and am really greatful to him for what he did for me.Before I hired him I had already discussed my case with a few other lawyers and was pretty disappointed with their unaffordable fees.But Mr Neil charged me very reasonably considering the hours he had to work for me.And he always kept me well informed and made sure that I was understanding things correctly.I truly appreciate his professionalism and enthusiasm he had through out the duration of our case.Above all I can't thank him enough for contacting me to discuss my concerns while he was out of country for a vacation.I would recommend Mr Tom Neil as an attorney for the genuine person he is.

    I am more than happy to leave a review for Tom. He helped my fiance and I with a custody case that was complex and had many nuances. We tried to manage the case on our own for as long as we could and when we finally decided to look for an attorney, we are endlessly grateful we ran into Tom.

    Tom is a genuine, good-hearted guy that asked us all the right questions, took our case on as his own, went into court, and got us an outcome that was far and beyond what we were even seeking. He always responded to our calls, met with us quickly, was very reasonable in his fees, took as much time out of his busy schedule as we needed, and really has been a friend as well as an attorney.

    I can't recommend Tom enough.

    Tom Neil was a good and effective lawyer and one who represented me well durning my nasty divorce that I wouldn't want to wish on no one. My divorce was like something out of a horrible movie that was being played out in my life. Being married for 22years at the start of the divorce it was about: Greed, Betrayal of the worst kind,Deception continual, Lying in and outside of courtroom, cunning and crafty, ...... I had to seek a personal counselor. My career suffered do to time taken off.I lost my home. I lost my: Father,Grandmother and Mother n- law. The list goes on. I said all that because durning my nightmare divorce ordeal, Tom Neil became an emotional and psychological dumping ground which was not my intention. Tom had a listing ear aswell as staying on top of my case. He was not overbearing or insensitive to my situation. Tom did everything in a timely manner, this really helped a lot. Tom is thorough in and out of the court. Tom caught things that could of cost me greatly. Because of tom professional thoroughness in a state where it seems it leans towards women; Tom was masterful in saving me from having to pay "Spousal support", which I'm truly greatful for. And not having to pay my "Ex" attorney fees. Most people said I was most lucky. I always tell people I don"t believe in luck, it's about preparation. Attorney Tom Neil was ready, professional and "Most" prepared to take on my "Divorce From Hell". You"er in good solid hands with Mr. Neil.

    Called for a consultation and left three messages. Never returned calls. Not sure why he is listed on here if he's not practicing. Don't bother calling him since he's MIA.

    Having had no previous experience with attorneys, I was fortunate enough to find Mr. Neil. His integrity, responsiveness, and compassion made the entire court experience bearable. He kept me informed every step of the way and filed all the proper paperwork. If you are looking for an aggressive attorney, he is probably not for you. However, if you are looking for an attorney who will work to get you a fair and equitable outcome, you should hire him. Mr. Neil looked at the facts of the case and was not afraid to say that what I wanted wasn't achievable thus saving me money.

    Tom Neil represented us in a child custody case initially and later in a parent-move situation. Besides ensuring all necessary paperwork was filed, Tom was extremely supportive. He took our calls and answered our questions even outside work hours. Tom explained confusing issues and suggested possible options. He brought us back around to the proper perspective when issues seemed overwhelming or negative. This alone was invaluable. In an emergency situation, Tom rescheduled other commitments and saw our problem through to complete resolution. He truly went above and beyond normal expectations.

    Mr.Neil had represented me in a Family Law matter and was very responsive to my needs as a Client. He is easy to contact anytime, and he takes his time to explain things. He is truly a genuine person who cares about his Clients. And his rates are quite reasonable.
