Tom Stone is very dishonest, he will run up charges, and demand you prove he didn't use the time. The real problem is... he takes the easy way out in mediation, requests info that has no relevance or is useless in litigation. Fortunately i have worked with competent caring attorneys, both on business and personal issues and know the difference. Find someone else, the plants that are rating this guy are just that.read more
I wanted to send a sincere note of thanks to Tom and his team for their recent support. It was almost 2 years ago that... I reached out to ask for assistance to care for my cousins estate after his unexpected death. There was no will and his estate was somewhat complicated. Adding to that complexity was the fact that my cousin lived in KY and I in Illinois. Tom worked with me to address all that needed to be done and was very professional and responsive. Although we never actually met in person, I felt he had the best interest of myself, and my cousin, in mind at all times. I am thankful for the support and could not have made it through this process without him. Thank you!read more
I moved to KY in 2017 from out of state, forced to embark on the process of restarting my life after experiencing... several stressful life events in rapid succession. Not knowing anyone in Louisville, I relied on resources like Google to help me select various providers, including an estate planner. While I entered into many of these new arrangements with my eyes wide open, I was really taken by how easy it was to work with the Stone legal team. They provide a graceful mix of trustworthy competence and a quick compassionate grasp of the complexities of my particular situation. They listen and have worked effectively with me to achieve what appears to be an optimum solution for the successful execution of my future estate goals. I feel fortunate to have them as partners in my life.read more

Great attorney who will work with you to make sure your affairs are in order.
We were limited in our knowledge of what all was required as executor of an estate but Tom was very thorough in guiding us through the process in a professional manner.

I've worked in the legal field for 30 years and I've known Tom Stone for more than 25 years. He has drafted estate planning documents not only for me but for family members and friends. He takes the time necessary to listen to his clients, to gather all of the information needed, and prepares high quality, professional estate planning documents that I know comport with my wishes and which I can rely upon to take care of my family. When people ask me for a recommendation for an estate planning attorney, I never hesitate to give them Tom's name.
Thomas Stone has always provided great service in our personal and professional lives. We highly recommend Mr. Stone for any legal need.

Tom Stone has given me both personal and professional legal advice. When my mother became ill and needed to be put in a Nursing Home, Tom gave me advice about the necessary powers of attorney that we would need to both be able to administer her affairs and protect her finances.
I had a very positive experience with the Stone Legal Group. Making out a Will can be very personal and at times emotional. Tom was very thorough and actually made it quite easy. I feel good that I have everything in place for my family for their future. Thank you Tom.
Tom provided great insight and direction in multiple situations. He helped me navigate the administrators responsibilities for my father's estate. He explained different options for distribution of assets. Personally he helped to amend my Living Trust and other documents. His advice is non biased but thoughtful. I would and have recommended him to colleagues and friends.
