About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Criminal defense
    I've handled thousands of criminal cases with the attitude that each client deserves the respect and attention I expect when I am negotiating with a prosecutor, arguing to a judge, or speaking to a jury.

    24 years

  2. DUI and DWI
    DUI defense is becoming a specialized area of practice where your attorney, like me, must stay on top of the constant changes in the law.

    24 years

  3. Violent crime
    I've found that in defending these complex cases, especially murder cases, I can expect to spend dozens, or even hundreds, of hours working on a case before I ever step into a courtroom with my client. I have developed strong professional relationsips with private investigators, DNA experts, ballistics specialists, and doctors who are available to offer their expertise when preparing the right defense for my clients.

Don't hire this attorney.
This so called attorney handle my PFA and child custody. He failed to repsent me in child custody. He was failed at repenting me in these cases. His main focus is criminal attorney, so if you have any other cases that you have don't go to this attorney. I WOULDN'T recommend him AT ALL! !
