"Thomas Burckhard is a brilliant attorney who fights hard for his clients. He truly cares about you and works in your best interest. My sons ex would not agree to a reasonable parenting plan so the case ended up going to trial. Thomas prepared and fought for my son as if they were brothers, you could tell that he is very passionate about doing the right thing, he was prepared and carried himself well during the trial. The trial ended on a posit[i]ve note with the judge witnessing how much my son loves and misses his daughter. Thomas also wrote a well written post hearing brief that highlighted the important testimonies that took place during the trial along with facts about the case. I would recommend Thomas to anyone who is in a custody battle, he will work hard for you and cares about your family as if it was his own.
