Tom and Kristal, Thank you both so much for everything you have done on my case. Your professionalism and diligence have made a difference in my life. I hope you found joy in the resolution of this case. You deserve it! Thanks again!
Dear Thomas Ham, You have been very helpful over the years with my divorce. Recently you assisted in getting charges dismissed for my son who had some teenage legal issues. You have made it easier to deal with problems.
Tom was great to work with. Very reassuring and gave me the security measures needed to ensure my safety. He even moved his schedule to accommodate my timeline due to the nature of my concerns – highly recommended.
Tom is an amazing human being who is kind, knowledgeable, timely, polite, and understanding. Moreover, I would recommend Tom if you need help and live in fear of harassment or torture, this is the company to call.
