About me

Thomas J. Lamb


I am a lawyer in Wilmington, North Carolina, with a national litigation practice and I have been recognized by other lawyers (that is, my peers) as practicing law at the highest level of professional experience -- which is indicated by me having an A-V rating (highest classification) peer-review rating from the Martindale-Hubbell Lawyer Directory, again, in 2013.


I started the Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb in 1996 after working at one of the nation’s largest plaintiff law firms, Ness Motley Loadholt Richardson & Poole, in Charleston, South Carolina. Prior to that, I worked on the other side of the fence at a defense firm, Keesal Young & Logan, in Long Beach, California.


I have had some of my articles published online by Reuters, Fox News, and other media sites. Over the years I been interviewed by The National Law Journal, CBS Nightly News, The New York Times, and Forbes, as well as by other journalists working in print and on TV.


I was first licensed to practice law in California (1988). I was admitted thereafter to practice in the District of Columbia (1990) and in North Carolina in (1992).


I went to law school at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C.


I did my undergraduate work at the College of William & Mary, in Williamsburg, Virginia.


I enjoy living near the coast with my wife and family, which in large part is why my law firm is located in Wilmington, North Carolina, close to Wrightsville Beach.
