We have done many deals together. Tom is a great deal strategist regarding structure, terms, negotiation, and papering deals. I have used other lawyers in my career and none come close to Tom.

-Patrick Sullivan
Jigsaw Health

"Tom is the best corporate attorney I have ever worked with! The depth and breadth of business experience is offered in a calm and reasoned demeanor, no matter the topic or the difficulty of the situation. You get advice that makes sense from a businessperson's perspective. On matters ranging from corporate governance, public company reporting, M&A transactions, licensing, capital structuring, and contract negotiations of all kinds, Tom is prompt, effective, focused, and finds win-win solutions to solve the essence of business problems."

"Tom is unique in that he has been intimately involved in the Railway from its inception in 1988 to its eventual sale in 2007. During those 19 years, Tom has guided us through some very complicated and involved legal issues involving a number of federal and state agencies. Tom has an unbelievable legal mind but his real strength is in his ability to apply the law to business realities. He is a strong person with the wisdom to be a good listener. The sale of the company was very complicated and involved both federal and state agencies. Tom identified potential problems early in the process and had them resolved in a timely manner. He led the contract negotiations and, in doing so, added significant value to the transaction. He has a real knack for knowing when and how hard to push and when to back off. Tom is a true professional with strong morals and impeccable integrity. "
