How To Handle The Legal Aftermath Of
A Truck Accident

The best way to make sure you are being treated fairly and compensated in full is enlisting the aid of a qualified and experienced truck accident lawyer.

CF Carpenters

Very competent attorney. Very serious case. I was guilty but wasn’t taking the states incarceration deal so did an open plea today. If I was innocent I’d like to have used him in trial. Scales of justice were balanced.


Thomas Grajek did an awesome job communicating with me and my my family. He handled this case profesionally, is well liked in the court room. If your seeking legal help i highly recommend him.

Brian S.

Sharp trial attorney, I dealt with him over 9 month and was very impressed with him in action which was completely different than his office visits and his determination to win and not just let things happen, the amount of preperation, his ability to think on his feet and change gears, his questioning skills and the legal mind to get the results he is after. Id recommend him to family and friends any day.


Mr. Grajek got my case dismissed so fast, I did not even have to go to court. I was referred to him by a friend of mine that said he was the best lawyer they have ever dealt with. He explained the strategy he was going to use for my defense by using terms that made the court process easy for me to understand. He started working on my case immediately and my charges were dismissed in less then 2 weeks. He is very nice and professional, but also aggressive and smart, which was just what I needed.

I contacted Tom because I had a domestic violence charge. Tom was there to answer all my questions and put my mind at ease when I was concerned. Tom was able to get my charges dropped. I would recommend Tom to anyone looking for help. He was there no matter what time of day it was. I wish I could give him more stars than 5
