A message from Tom Burton

To me, the practice of law is an art, not a science. It is a service-based career that I have dedicated to solving my clients’ most distressing problems. While the principles of the law do not change from client to client, no two cases are identical, and a customized approach is what I have found works best. Working state-wide throughout Texas has given me a unique perspective on the various local courts, and serving as in-house counsel for a national non-profit has sharpened my resolve to advocate for clients, even at the risk of offending local judges. I am absolutely invested in zealous advocacy for my clients, many of whom are in dire circumstances.
