“In the 26 years I have been practicing law, I have never seen a new attorney with the drive, determination, talent and skills as I see in Tom. I saw his potential when he was a law clerk at the firm, and knew we had to hire him as a new associate when he graduated from law school. That has turned out to be one of the best decisions I’ve made at Bisnar Chase. His skill level rivals that of attorneys who have been practicing for 10+ years. He has earned my trust so much that he works hand in hand with me on some of the firm’s largest cases.”
