Thomas Gerard Pye

About me

I have practiced law for 31 years. My firm and myself are very well recognized in the community of professionals. In addition, I teach as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida. My class is centered on legal issues.  


I have been a member of the Florida Bar since 1982. During my years I joined the United States District Court of the Northern District of Florida Bar as a member. Shortly thereafter, I became a board member of the Northern District of Florida Bankruptcy Bar. Additionally, I am a member in good standing of the United States District Court of the Middle District of Florida and the United States District Court of the Southern District of Florida.

I personally assist all of my clients. I take on no case or client unless I personally meet with them and assist them from start to finish. It is this personal professional service that has kept me interested in all aspects of all client's cases. I know all of my clients by name, and all telephone calls are personally answered or returned.
