Tom’s investigative approach has allowed him to become one of the leading experts in the areas of real estate, and creditor’s rights and remedies law. Using the lens of experience that comes from over 30 years specialized practice in the areas of real estate transactions and financing, judicial and non-judicial real property foreclosures, real estate contract forfeitures, evictions, proceedings under Washington’s Receivership Act, and the representation of creditors, trustees and other interested parties in bankruptcy court proceedings, Tom is known for finding resolution in often difficult cases.
A good communicator, with an in-depth knowledge of Washington state and federal bankruptcy law, Tom works closely with his clients to develop sensible and strategic plans that he executes with a capable and experienced hand. His expertise, forensic approach, ability to think outside the box, and track record of success for problem cases has made him a sought after speaker and educator on creditor’s rights and remedies, and foreclosure and bankruptcy issues in particular. As a result, Tom is often called upon by others to provide counsel and insight on highly specialized cases that cross over into emerging law, and to act as an expert witness.
Tom received his B.A. degree, magna cum laude, in History from the University of Washington where he was elected Phi Beta Kappa. He earned his J.D. degree, with honors, from the University of Washington School of Law. Tom is a frequent speaker at continuing legal education seminars relating to creditors’ rights and remedies. Tom is a member of the King County, Washington State and American Bar Associations and the American Bankruptcy Institute. He is a past chair of the CLE Committee for the Washington State Bar Association, a past chair of the Bankruptcy Section for the King County Bar Association, a past co-chair of the Bankruptcy Committee of the Federal Bar Association for the Western District of Washington, a past chair of the Creditor-Debtor Section of the Washington State Bar Association, and a past co-chair of the lawyer representatives from the Western District of Washington appointed to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference.
