“Tom helped us with a large oil and gas project. His land title experience really showed. His efficiency and ability to navigate the land records in different courthouses was very impressive. Tom was and continues to be a great resource for our company.”
“I tried to handle my divorce on my own. After struggling and losing sleep for months I talked to Tom. His advice helped me relax and he was able to get the divorce finalized with the outcome I’d hoped for in a couple weeks.”
“Tom was there for me when I needed legal advice. Just the thought of going to court was intimidating. Having an attorney present is so important for achieving the best possible outcome.”
“Tom helped us with a mineral acquisition involving numerous title defects. He talked to record owners and reviewed wills from all across the country. Somehow he made sense of it all. We got the title cured and got the minerals. We couldn’t be happier.”
“I had so many questions when my husband was in the hospital. I didn’t know what I would do if the worst happened. Tom put us much more at ease by making sure we had a plan and all the right documents.”
