I am a Certified Criminal Law Specialist in the State of California. I meet Mr. Driscoll when I was handling a criminal case where a teacher was accused of molestation by 13 students. I won the case. During that time Mr. Driscoll was working on defending the teachers credentials. I got positive feedback from the client and was able to observe his work product. Since that case over 20 years ago, we have worked on cases jointly. All have been very hard cases and all had a positive outcome.

I have known Tom Driscoll for approximately 25 years. We both practice in the field of Education law. A substantial portion of his practice and mine is devoted to representing members of the California Teachers Association. I see him every year at the annual conference of CTA attorneys. He is almost always asked to be presenter at the conference. I also communicate with him from time to time throughout the year directly and thorugh a list serve email system. He is an outstanding lawyer.

Mr. Driscoll is an excellent attorney. He does at times, however, use his obligation as a zealous advocate to belittle opposing counsel, and opposing counsel's clients. In most cases, this is unnecessary and creates an environment that is not conducive to settlement.

Mr. Driscoll has been a leader in the field of Education law regarding the rights of teachers for many years; he has litigated through appeals several major cases which lead to clarifications and changes in the law governing teacher classification and tenure.

Tom is a "pocket guide" to the Education Code and law, and probably the foremost legal mind on the subject in California.
