"Tom is a great lawyer and his conduct and character exemplify what we strive for at Ryley Carlock. I could not be more proud of Tom for his accomplishments in the law and in becoming a shareholder, and I am also proud of this organization which is very adept at selecting, including and nurturing great talent," said Ryley's Managing Shareholder Rodolfo (Rudy) Parga, Jr.
