Tom is a strategic partner who is tuned-into his clients’ culture, understanding their risk tolerance and supporting each move from client-centric focus. Employment law is a very people oriented business and Tom identifies each issue and crafts a solution, with the people factor in mind. At times it requires digging deep through complicated and conflicting facts, interpreting contracts and the law, while sorting out emotions, but Tom always reduces these factors to find an answer to a problem.

Tom [Godar] and Paul [Karch] provided incredible expertise throughout the long negotiations. They had an amazing ability to understand all the moving parts, and quickly resolve issues. And their genuine interest and friendship gave us the confidence we needed to keep moving forward.”
Tom is ready to share the late night worries clients have of recruiting and retaining the best employees at all levels by offering his experience on recruitment, policy development, training and discipline.
