About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Tom’s practice is focused on the representation of clients in complex civil litigation and criminal law.

Tom has been rated as a “Massachusetts Super Lawyer” since that designation was established by the Thompson Reuters rating service in Boston Magazine. Tom is one of only four attorneys designated as a Super Lawyer in the field of plaintiff personal injury in the four Western Massachusetts counties, Hampshire, Franklin, Hampden and Berkshire. It is an honor the organization gives to less than five percent of the lawyers in Massachusetts.

Tom’s civil practice is concentrated on personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. However, he regularly represents clients in business and real estate litigation, First Amendment and civil rights claims, and environmental, zoning and municipal law.

Tom’s criminal practice is diverse, ranging from representing clients charged with first degree murder, white collar violations, drug related crimes, and operating while under the influence violations.

Tom graduated from Harvard Law School in 1972. In addition to practicing throughout Massachusetts, he is admitted to the United States District Courts in Vermont and Connecticut. He has taught at Western New England School of Law, as well as continuing legal education courses in the fields of personal injury law, criminal law and technology.

Tom was active in the Obama campaigns in 2008 and 2012, serving on the National Finance Committee in 2011 and 2012 and on the New England Steering Committee since 2007.

Senator Elizabeth Warren recently selected Tom as one of five attorneys in western Massachusetts to serve on the Advisory Committee on Massachusetts Judicial Nominations for the purpose of recommending candidates for federal judicial vacancies in Massachusetts.
