  • Tom's the BEST period!
    I have retained Tom for the better part of 2 decades. I've referred dozens of clients and friends all with positive reviews about him. He is as solid as the come. He does not item his mouth for no reason. If you want to win your case hire him.

  • Insurance Nightmare
    I was involved in an automobile accident in Tacoma a little over 2 years ago. The accident was not my fault so I didn't think I needed an attorney. When the insurance company contacted me they were requesting my insurance information to file a claim against me! I tried to explain to them that it was their clients responsibility and by the time I was done I was questioning the situation myself. My car and body were banged up pretty good. I contacted Tom and explained the situation. I retained him and that was the last I heard from the insurance company. By the time this ordeal was done, I was compensated for my injuries and my car was repaired just as good as new!
