Tom wears many hats, but none more important than his role as an award-winning transactions attorney with more than 20 years of experience – focusing on real estate, corporate and commercial transactions, and public-private transactions.

With regard to real estate, Tom represents homebuilders, developers, investors, owners, infrastructure groups, construction managers, municipalities, health care companies, manufacturers, golf course owners, wind and solar developers and many others. His practice encompasses the acquisition, development, financing, lease and sale of residential, commercial, office, industrial, and agricultural properties.

Tom also has significant experience with public-private transactions, development and land-use agreements, improvement and community facilities districts, water agreements and utility agreements.

For the past 14 years, Tom has been ranked among the Best Lawyers in America for his real estate practice. His name has also graced the lists of Southwest Super Lawyers (2007-2016), Arizona’s Finest Lawyers (2014-2016) and Chambers USA (2014-2016) – all hallmarks of the passion he puts into his practice every single day. But, Tom’s fervor for the legal profession doesn’t live in a bubble inside his practice. He has been actively involved in Arizona’s future through his participation in numerous initiatives, including the Greater Phoenix Economic Council-Community Building Consortium and his current role on the Legislative Committee for Valley Partnership.
