About me

Tom is a Trial Attorney for the South Sound offices of Graham Lundberg Peschel. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Cincinnati in 1981, and for the next 20 years he worked in the insurance industry defending personal injury claims caused by automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, premises liability, product liability and professional negligence.  During that time, Tom tried approximately 100 jury trials in just about every county throughout Western Washington. 

In 2004, he began solely representing persons injured by the negligence of others. Since 2004, Tom has resolved hundreds of personal injury claims through negotiation, mediation, arbitration and trial. He partially credits this to his years on the other side of the fence, and his ability to know what strategies the defense uses and how they assess the case.

When he is not working, Tom enjoys spending time with his grown children and first grand child. He also enjoys fishing, riding his motorcycle, and hiking the many trails of Washington State.
