Tom Guilfoil was my boss, law partner, and advisor for many years. I cannot recall a conversation with him that did not make me re-think something. I named my City Hall conference room after him to remind myself that the decisions made there are only as good as the advice that is given. Tom was smart, fierce, and funny ' though the humor was the kind that they use to cut diamonds. He left an indelible mark on the law, on his City, and on those who worked with him.
