I can’t thank you enough for all you have done to help Kim and I through all the suffering and hard times. Thank you for being there and helping me with all my emotions.

I will never forget you. God bless you and we will pass on more clients to you.

After my motor vehicle accident, I was not getting anywhere with workman’s compensation. When I met with Tom, he assured me that everything would be taken care of. Immediately, I was no longer going to a Centre Care, I was seeing specialists that greatly assisted me in my recovery. His concern for my well being was extraordinary. Tom is professional, reliable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would not hesitate to recommend Tom to anyone who requires the serves of an excellent attorney.
