Thom Snyder (Of Counsel)
Experienced Criminal Defense & Family Lawyer In Hanford, Ca
Attorney Thom Snyder joins the Carlos Navarrete Law Firm as a Partner, bringing with him an invaluable wealth of knowledge and experience that can only come with over 40 years of practice as an attorney. Over the course of his professional career, Snyder has been a fierce and effective advocate for the wellbeing of children involved in family law case and for the wrongfully accused as a dedicated criminal defense attorney. His trials skills are accompanied by impeccable dealings with clients, offering clients a thorough understanding of what lies ahead of them and communicating fully the intended course of action toward their goals.
Before becoming an attorney, Snyder worked as a teacher and school administrator. This works in favor of our firm’s clients, as Snyder is able to seamlessly communicate all aspects of the case at hand in a way that simplifies the details and allows more emphasis to be placed on the implications and importance of the steps made toward a favorable outcome. Snyder cared for the well-being of the schools he managed and the children who attended them. He later translated this passion into a law degree he uses every day to fight for those who can’t fight for themselves.
Family Law & Criminal Defense Experience
After becoming an attorney, Snyder has spent a total of more than 40 years in and out of private practice advocating for those going through a family matter and those facing the potential loss of their freedom. He is notably proud of his civil work related to termination of parental rights and adoption, including prevailing in an international child abduction case which allowed a 3-year-old child to be returned to his Peruvian mother after being abducted by his American father.
As a criminal defense attorney, he has successfully obtained an acquittal for his client who was facing a first-degree murder charge. Few criminal defense attorneys can say they have helped a client to such a magnitude, facing at one time life in prison (or worse), then later being set free with the opportunity to expunge the matter completely from their record, as if it never happened.
