As the owner and founder of Kreger Law Firm, I take the work we do here seriously. I believe strongly in easy communication between attorneys and clients, high quality legal work done quickly and efficiently, and especially in successful outcomes for our clients. After graduating from college, I worked for four years as a claims adjuster for Progressive Insurance in Raleigh, North Carolina. While at Progressive, I saw how often the lack of good representation harmed people in their fight against large corporations. This experience led me to go to night law school while continuing my work in the insurance field. Upon graduating with highest honors from law school, I worked briefly for Mayer Brown, LLP, a large Chicago-based law firm, doing banking and finance legal work. I quickly realized that banking and finance work was not fulfilling my desire for working directly with clients who needed immediate and personalized help. So in 2010, I started my own law firm in Durham, North Carolina in an effort to use my experience in the insurance and banking fields to support my clients to the best of my ability.

I now work primarily in the fields of personal injury, vehicle accidents, workplace injuries, and other forms of civil litigation. With four years of direct experience in the insurance industry and nine years of experience as an attorney fighting insurance companies, I have helped thousands of people struggling to be fairly compensated for their personal injuries and property damage. I truly believe that having a hard-working, experienced attorney on your side can be a great equalizer in your fight against insurance companies and large corporations.

While not working at my law firm, I like to stay busy. As a former NCAA All-American long distance runner, I try to keep in shape by running as much as I can. If you happen to be in the Woodcroft area, you might see me running the local trails. With four little kids at home, however, I don’t have the energy for running that I once had. Most of that energy gets used up teaching the kids to swim, golf, play tennis, or just keeping the kids clean, fed and generally well-behaved. If I am lucky and get a quiet night out with my wife, we are usually exploring the amazing new restaurants that Durham has to offer.

TOO GOOD OF A LAWYER, BECAUSE OF HIS TOUGHNESS, THOROUGH AND PROFESSIONALISM, I RETAINED HIM AS MY COMPANY AND FAMILY LAWYER.
Tom Kreger represented me during my Auto accident (Dump Truck Accident) in 2015. He represented me with his toughness, thorough and his professionalism. He was there for me for the entire time and made some money for me. I'll recommend him to anyone that needs a lawyer services. Due to his TOUGHNESS, THOROUGH AND PROFESSIONALISM, I've retained him as my Company and Family Lawyer. HE IS REAL GOOD.
