A brilliant lawyer...

I needed help...

I needed help when my new supervisor at work wanted me fired for job failure, despite my previously receiving good performance reviews. With only one meeting and a few short email exchanges, Mr. Thal guided me so I could express my side of the story such that I was offered a very favorable severance package.

Mr. Thal has a brilliant mind. I experienced this first hand when he represented me in a wrongful termination case against the state of Washington and the AG office. Mr. Thal's expertise in matters such as this won him my respect. During the whole proceedings, Mr. Thal was cool, calm and professional. Mr. Thal won my case and I was reinstated with full compensation. I owe him my livelihood and my future.
