Great Supportive Attorney!!
Tom did a great job of helping create an updated parenting plan and assist me in going back to court to get back child support for my kiddo as well as provide support to me throughout when issues would arise. I have used him twice, both during my initial divorce and to file a contempt and I spoke not use anyone else to help me! He is knowledgeable and he really cares!!!

Tireless Support
Tom was able to help me and my daughter relocate to our hometown in way less time than I expected--we were able to settle even before mediation took place. His drive was tireless; he worked weekends and weeknights to get my case resolved quickly due to the sensitive nature of the case and my pending job offer back home. I appreciate how he maintained a consistent presentation to my ex-husband and his lawyer, and I feel that this unwavering stance is what caused the eventual concession. I also appreciate how Tom was extremely concerned for my and my daughter's well-being, educating me about our rights and how we can expect to be protected under the law. Tom was able to help create a tremendous improvement in the quality of my and my daughter's life for years to come with this move, and I would 100% recommend him to anyone for his knowledge, follow through, and unwavering support.

Thank you!
I am very appreciative of Toms services. English is a second language to me, and this proccess seemed difficult because of that barrier. He was very patient and thorough making sure I understood everything before he proceeded. I will recommend him to everyone! He truly cares about you, as does his wonderful, helpful team.

Successful Resolution!
I had a very prickly case that could have resulted in financial liability for life. I contacted and worked with Tom and was thoroughly impressed by his approach to my case. He developed a powerful strategy, identified a wealth of precedent to support that strategy, and presented everything related to the case in a completely professional manner. When the case was ruled upon, the Court adopted Tom's arguments verbatim, ruled in my favor, and dismissed the case. I firmly believe that no one could have provided the level of service or expertise than that provided by Tom Cossitt. For anyone who may be considering an attorney to represent them and their interests, I highly recommend Tom Cossitt.

Couldn't ask for anyone better
I met with as many as 10 different attorneys before coming across Thomas. After our initial consultation, I was very pleased with his knowledge and realistic expectations. During the really tough time, Thomas kept me calm and helped tremendously to get custody of my daughter. He kept me informed on what was going on and would ask for my input; if it was something that was unrealistic or could be done a different way, Thomas would tell me right away. During the hearings, he was amazing. He kept a professional attitude and was great at cross examinations. He took in all of the facts and evidence, and was able to present them efficiently and effectively. Ultimately helping me gain custody of my child.

Tom is an attorney who is able to hear what you need and also decide a cost-effective solution.
Tom has represented me on several different legal actions and I have been very pleased with each of the outcomes. In my opinion, he has a knack for hearing what you are saying and taking the unproductive emotion out to make a realistic, appropriate plan. Tom is a thorough and caring person who keeps the best interests of the children top priority. I recommend Tom for all your legal actions.

Great Family Representation
Tom and his team helped me with multiple cases over a couple years. First we addressed child support, and later a case to get my daughter out of a potentially dangerous situation with haste. From the initial consultation, to checking in a month after the cases ended, he kept me informed of all options available and acted only when asked. I was really impressed with the manner in which he conducted himself in front of the judge. It has been my experience with previous representation that they talk a mean game plan, and choke in the court room. Tom nailed both of my cases, even when the state brought representation against me, he still got the judge to rule in my favor. My last case was a very sensitive situation that required subtlety and discretion over the course of almost a year. In the end, he and his team, got my child support addressed, and my daughter out of harms way with the least amount of collateral damage possible. As a father in Colorado, the chances of gaining any ground in a custody battle for split households is few and far between. I am certain that the difference maker in my case was Tom and the Harris Law Firm. Thanks again Tom!

Tom is thorough, personal, and focused on my desired outcome
Tom guided my case to a desired ending point. He kept me informed,explained to me all of the options, and made appropriate recommendations. He is extremely thorough and I would hire him again

My priorities were his priority.
Mr. Cossitt managed and resolved several post divorce actions on my behalf. These included financial obligations, visitation matters and disregard of court orders. He understood my position, evaluated the facts, advised me and performed beyond my expectations. He protected me, my son and resolved my problems quickly and professionally. If there are ever any other legal matters that I need resolved I will be using Mr. Cossitt and would give him the best referral to my closest friends and family.

What a joke
The best thing that happened to me when I was using this law firm was when they fired me as a client. The mistakes this place makes are unbelievable. Wrong names of my kids, not holding a deadline, not holding the opposing party accountable, legal knowledge all very sub standard IMPO. Run from this law firm. All they will do is suck up your money and do very little for it. Of the few reviews you have one is a lawyer that works for you. Lol wow

Horrible Experience
I hired Tom Cossitt to represent me in a custody case. For the first 2 weeks he called me by the wrong name and put the wrong name on legal papers sent to my ex-husband's attorney. He asked me to work on very "important" documents then he wouldn't get back to me because he was busy with other clients and missed deadlines with the court... then he would say well they weren't that important anyway. He told me to say mostly positive things about my ex-husband to the Child Family Investigator so I didn't look like the crazy, bitter ex-wife and wanted to re-write (and did) what I wrote to the CFI to make it all sound positive. My new attorney said it made it sound like my ex was a great father - he was NOT! I felt like Tom Cossitt was fighting me the whole way, never once did I feel like he was on my side fighting for me. It was absolutely awful. At a time when I needed support and someone to fight for me I spent time, money and my energy fighting my attorney. I spent $7,500 and got NOTHING for it. I was actually worse off when I left to find a new attorney than when I started with Tom Cossitt. Then I needed to spend more money to get a new attorney up to speed. Tom Cossitt kept pushing for a hearing and did nothing to try to resolve things out of court. My new attorney settled things out of court getting me almost everything I asked for within a couple of months, she fought for me, with me and I felt like someone had my back. I would not recommend Tom Cossitt to anyone, ever.

Looks good, sounds good doesn't mean it is.
I experienced the same as one of the other reviews. Mr Cossitt has no courtroom presents. He is nervous and showed no confidence. He was not organized with the facts. He was destroyed in the courtroom by the respondent that represented themselves and had no more than a high school education. When I had the consultation with Cossitt he was confident that there would be a better out come than what I was facing prior to court. I left the courtroom after he was schooled by the non-attorney worse than I ever thought. After this Mr. Cossitt ABANDON me with court still pending. He cut his loses and left me to finish the case. He would not take my phone calls and charged me over $16,000. He did nothing for me. This shows he has no care for his clients. His staff is constantly after you about payment after he says he will work with you. Mr. Cossitt charges more than most attorneys. He rarely called when he said he would. He was always behind and not prepared. He would ask for information the night before the information was due or before court. He would charge for calls from his staff stating he would call at a certain time and then never call. I am retired from law enforcement and have been in the courtroom many times both for civil and criminal cases. I haven't seen worse. Based on my case I can not and would not recommend Tom Cossitt. Save your money and time, find a competent attorney that cares about you and won't abandon you.
