Tom helped me with a bunch of Legal Understanding when I first started my graphics company. His heart, spirit and generosity stayed in my memory, making him my go-to-guy for all Business Legal Needs & Questions. And he often offered services at no charge. Talk about a Great Guy!!! His generosity stays with me today, and it's THAT that I want to continue in his legacy. As I help others...I remember when he helped me! Thanks Tom!

My sympathy to the Thomas Fisher Family. He helped me when my son passed away and also when my husband passed away. He was truly a wonderful friend and attorney in helping me. I understand your loss.

Tom acted as a lawyer to us several years ago when we ran across a very difficult situation. He was so humane, sympathetic and yes, he even ate some of our costs because he excuded sympathy. We were looking him up to get advice on another issue when we discovered that he had passed. Our hearts are heavy and wanted the family to know that he made an impact in ways that you will never know!
