In addition, Tom represented lawyers to bring about judicial and legislative reform of funding indigent defense and was instrumental in creating public interest law firms to provide cutting edge capital defense (Louisiana Capital Assistance Center) and the closure of abusive juvenile prisons with long term reform of the juvenile justice system (Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana).
