"I've lived in the Gastonia area for about 11 years and on several occasions need some legal advice and legal help. Tom Kakassy was very helpful and saved me a good bit of money. I needed a lawyer to assist me with a storage company that totally ruined my high end furniture. Tom and his staff were amazing. He fought for what was right and won! On another occasion my son was purchasing his first home, Tom and his staff treated my son with respect and walked him through the process all the way. I'm so thankful for what he has done for me and my family. I will definitely use Thomas Kakassy again!"    - Lisa W.

"I am so pleased with my experience as a client of Tom Kakassy. Tom was incredibly attentive and helpful. He gave me the unvarnished truth and provided unbiased insight based on the law and his experience. I don't know about you, but I'm not paying an attorney to tell me what I want to hear. I'm paying for guidance that prevents loss or hardship and benefits me. While Tom gave me feedback to burst my bubble, he was gracious and sympathetic. I am grateful he prevented me from making a mistake."    - Anonymous
