The Lawyer Referral Service of the Legal Hotline for Texans, a program of Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC), truly appreciates the attorneys within Texas who accept reduced fee cases throughout the year. TLSC would like to specifically recognize the outstanding efforts of Plano, TX attorney Tom Daley, of Power Daley PLLC.
Mr. Daley became a member of the program in October of 2010, and has since accepted 77 referrals. During his time as
a volunteer panel attorney, Daley has assisted close to 50 percent of these family law referrals at a reduced fee. Recently, Mr. Daley assisted in a case where a client had voluntarily paid child support since his children were born, but had never lived with the children or had time with them by himself. TLSC referred this client to Tom Daley, who agreed to reduce his fee significantly and represent him at his child support and visitation hearing. After the hearing, the client called TLSC to report how happy he was. He now has legal rights to see his children, independent of their mother. He said he feels like a regular dad, and can’t believe he will get to take his children places and do things with them like other dads get to do with their kids. He said he actually feels free to move on with his personal life, too, without jeopardizing his ability to see his children.
Tom Daley truly goes above and beyond to assist all his clients, and always receives excellent reviews. Many referred clients go as far as referring their friends and family to Mr. Daley themselves. It is a pleasure to have attorneys such as Tom Daley as a member of the Referral Service, and TLSC hopes to continue the partnership for many years to come. Many thanks from TLSC to Mr. Daley, and to all of our panel attorneys around the state.
