About This Firm

At The Law Office of Thomas G. Tripp, I provide personal estate planning, elder law and probate services. I tend to think of my law office as a kitchen table where we can talk about your family, your property and your concerns.

As a solo attorney practice consisting of myself and two legal assistants, I get to know my clients and their extended families. I think that is an important part of estate planning. The law tends to create certain presumptions about your family. If those presumptions are not true, then your lawyer needs to know and plan accordingly.

In the real world, life is complicated. We have second marriages, blended families, life partners and nontraditional relationships that we need to plan for. A one-size-fits-all approach to estate planning simply does not work. It can end up accomplishing the opposite of what you want.

For example, if you want your life partner to make health decisions for you if you are incapacitated, you will need to spell out your wishes in your Designation of Health Care Surrogate. Otherwise, the state could put someone else in charge. If that someone else is a family member who disapproves of your relationship, your life partner could be barred from even seeing you.

The estate plan that is appropriate for someone else's family may not be appropriate for yours. To be effective, your plan needs to be based on your assets, your family dynamics and your wishes.

My law office is located in Pinellas County. It is easily accessible from Interstate 275 and U.S. 19 and offers free parking in front of the office.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
