"...There is not enough I can say about Tom. He was there for me every step of the way, going above and beyond throughout the process. I was able to reach him anytime day and night, and felt he had a genuine interest in me and my family. Tom was upfront and honest, and always gave me all possible outcomes to best prepare me for what may happen. He was organized, well respected by his colleagues, understanding and firm. With Tom’s guidance, I avoided a lengthy sentence. After my case was complete, Tom not only helped me with one, but two additional legal issues that stemmed from the outcome of my original case. There were no additional charges, I am fairly certain he barely broke even with me, and both cases also ended with positive results. Tom believed in me and I am forever grateful for his help. I would highly recommend Tom Splain. There is no one else out there like him and I am blessed that he was able to represent me."
