Attorney at Law
"We have a small, start up business and we were receiving unfair, improper and false reviews from a former employee that wanted to harass our company. Tom helped us figure out what to do. He has a good business sense and got the job done efficiently and successfully. We will definitely use Tom again for internet and other business legal issues."
"Tom helped us on numerous occasions reviewing and responding to civil subpoenas seeking information on our social networking website. Tom understands the applicable laws and efficiently handled drafting the response. We had lots of questions for Tom but he explained everything for us. We will definitely use Tom again."
