Q. Please rate this lawyer on the following:

Legal Knowledge: Excellent

Whenever faced with some unusual nuance of law, I turn to Tom Nathan to ask the question. He never fails to answer those questions and provide the guidance needed to succeed. He is keenly familiar with the Illinois Pattern Jury Instructions (Civil), the code of civil procedure and the most current case law.

Legal Analysis: Excellent

Tom has demonstrated repeatedly his knowledge and practical application of the law. Some say that good facts make good lawyers, but Tom has the ability to apply the law to the most daunting case facts and still prevail.

Communication Skills: Excellent

Tom has succeeded with juries for more than 40 years. He is able to relay his special knowledge of complicated medical, engineering, chemical and scientific facts to the jury in a way that the unfamiliar can fully understand. That comes perhaps from Tom's early career as a high school teacher.

Ethics and Professionalism: Excellent

Tom has an impeccable reputation of ethical conduct and in practice is sincere and honest with clients and opposing lawyers. It's a fact that many of Tom's opponents have turned to him for the handling of catastrophic injury cases that they know from opposing him will be well-handled.
