  • Tom helped me with my paternity as well as my declaration for my custody hearing. Tom does what he says he is going to do and I recommend his services. –Justin K., Newport Beach, CA

  • Tom has assisted me several times over the years. He is professional, responsive, and accurate, and I recommend him to others. His fees have always been fair, and I will return for Tom's professional assistance in the future.–Bill T., Orange, CA

  • I was referred to Tom Hicks by a friend who had her trust done by him. I needed an addendum to my trust and I had gone to three other lawyers who wanted to charge between $1000 and $2500 for a simple one page addendum. Tom did the addendum for an incredibly reasonable fee, and he explained everything completely. I will go back to him when I do decide to update my trust. I would recommend his services, you won't be disappointed.–Beverly B., Seal Beach, CA

  • I needed to have some changes to my Living Trust and Health Care Directive, and chose not to continue with the lawyer who did the original work because her price went way up. Tom made all the changes I asked for in a timely manner, was professional, and yes, I'd recommend him to others seeking these types of services.–Alicia T., Culver City, CA

  • In 2001 Tom drew up a trust for my parents. They were very happy with his work. In 2014, with both of my parents now deceased, my siblings and I made an appointment with Tom to review the trust and to discuss our questions and concerns. Tom made himself available to us, answering all our questions and patiently explaining different aspects of the trust. He was very helpful, knowledgable and professional... And he refused any payment from us! I would definitely recommend Tom Hicks, Attorney Alternative and will use his services when the legal need arises.–Suzanne L., Mission Viejo, CA
