This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Thomas’s comment: “This was a regulatory action initiated by the State Bar over concerns about a conflict of interest disclosure form that was created by the partners in my firm in 1992 when I was an Associate.”

Tom is extremely sharp and knows the technical aspects of the law extremely well. But he is also very focused on developing a relationship with his clients so he can offer additional connections to other professionals in a variety of areas. He understands estate planning, wills, trusts, and probate issues exceptionally well and can put them in a language you can understand. He is extremely personable and is passionate about getting you the best solution possible for whatever the need. He is extremely ethical and someone you can trust implicitly with your legal needs. Bottom line is "he cares" and that is a great think to combine with exceptional knowledge of the law.

Tom is an outstanding attorney who not only cares significantly about his clients well-being, but is one of the most knowledgeable I have witnessed in the industry. His estate and wealth transfer planning skills surpass all others that I inquired with. He is very affordable and I promise you will be more than satisfied with his services.

I highly endorse this lawyer. I have known Tom Lofton since 1998 and can attest to his character, commitment, thoroughness, integrity and honesty. Tom Lofton seems unflappable. I have seen him in extremely stressful settings; he remains measured and thoughtful. He is highly intelligent and resourceful, and understands the law and its vagaries. His sense of fair play and integrity is shown by his daily actions. Tom is a father and family man, committed to his three children. He is mindful that he is an example to them, and an example to all of us who work with him. I am proud to be a colleague and to call him a friend.
