  • John Franklin Sherwood

    I have known Tom Gores for more than thirty years. I have worked with him on Washington State Bar Association matters and participated with him in Continuing Education Programs. He is intelligent, knowledgeable, and brings a certain "reallity" or practicallity to sophisticated estate planning tools. I have no doubt but that his clients' interests are his primary concern. He is one of the best lawyers I know.
