Tom Malley and I are working on a property issue. He has been most helpful in trying to resolve issues between the parties involved. I have appreciated his candor, honesty, and resourcefulness in finding various possible resolution scenarios. He has sought consult with other professionals and has kept me in the loop throughout the process. He is an excellent communicator and has made himself available when I have had questions or comments to make. Some of which has been after office hours. He is clear in his communication and provides clarity if I have questions or don't understand. I trust him completely in protecting my interest.
