About Me

A native of Pittsburgh, Thomas D. Berret  attended Central Catholic High School and the University of Pittsburgh, where he graduated with a B.S. in Psychology. After graduation from the University of Akron School of Law in 1995, Tom returned to Pittsburgh where he practiced with a small personal injury law firm, thereafter serving as a Law Clerk of the Honorable Charles Alexander, P.J.

Tom joined Hal Waldman & Associates in late 1997, and practices almost exclusively in the areas of personal injury, including Motor Vehicle Collisions, premises liability, Dog Bites, and medical malpractice.
