A common perception of most lawyers is that they're confrontational and aggressive. Tom Fraser goes the other way. He is known for his preternatural calm. He's helped find solutions to all manner of disputes as a complex litigator: sharholder and partnership actions, business valuation cases, securities claims. He's also mediated more than 400 cases and arbitrated more than 100. Above all, he has a keen sense of ethics and an appetite for social justice, as is evidenced by his work representing death row inmates in state and federal court in habeas corpus cases.
