From our clients

“I want you to know that I doubt any other case you win will ever mean more to the plaintiff than this victory means to me. I feel like I’ve been set free. I feel like I have my life back.”

“Tom always answered his emails and his phone when I called. Tom and Sue always made time to make sure we understood what was happening throughout the lengthy litigation. I can’t imagine how we would have navigated this process without someone like Tom in our corner. He truly is a helpful and knowledgeable person.”

“I probably can’t express sufficiently to you the sense of victory and relief I have felt since this was settled. I feel completely vindicated. I feel like all the things that were put out of balance 20+ years ago have been returned to their proper place.”
