movie finish
I was illegally arrested charged with a crime i did not commit simply by being in the car with the person the police aimed to arrest. Tom got the case dismissed AND is going to represent me in a civil suit against the state. I would habe a ten year prison sentence if it were not for his representation. Of that i have. No doubt. Best lawyer you cann hire in the treasure valley.

Exceeds expectations, works hard, very good to have on my side
I worked with Tom through what was at the time, the most difficult period of my life. Tom took the time to thoroughly listen and understand my case. He then constructed the best possible legal approach to my particular case. I was very impressed with his honesty, his dedication and tenacity. Tom went above and beyond the call of duty. I am very pleased with his representation, his professionalism and hard work was exceptional. Communication was above average, I could always count on a return text or phone call with in minutes. Top notch professional - will exceed your expectations.
