“I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Tom Tosdal, Michael Feinberg and other attorneys on the Conchas Fire case in New Mexico for the past 5 years or more. This case involved one of the biggest and most destructive fires in the history of New Mexico. Mr. Tosdal was the lead attorney for the Motions and Trial arguments for all the plaintiffs. He specifically represented the Cochiti Indian Pueblo which suffered substantial damages to its infrastructure. Mr. Feinburg represented a group who owned ranching properties impacted by the fire.

I have commented to many of my colleagues that I have never seen a better overall courtroom presentation than what I saw Tom Tosdal do as lead counsel for the Cochiti Indian Tribe. He and his team, including Michael Feinberg did an extraordinary job in preparation, briefing and presenting the overall case. I spoke with one of the key tribal members last week and our discussion was that the tribe was blessed to have had what I and they consider to have been the most outstanding representation either of us had ever seen.

I have personally complimented Mr. Tosdal as being one of the best, if not the single best attorney I have ever seen in a courtroom.”
