Adrian Philip Thomas

About me

Attorney Adrian P. Thomas is the “AV”-rated, managing partner of an eight-attorney boutique law firm concentrating its practice in probate, estate, trust and guardianship litigation. The law firm has represented more than 800 clients in estate-related disputes, both prosecuting and defending, with a wide variety of causes of action. After many years and hundreds of cases, we have learned that the facts are always the same in a general sense, but have infinite variety as to the particulars. There is always an elderly person, usually alone, and a predatory relative, friend, or caretaker who takes advantage of the loneliness and dependency of old age.  We understand that while clients are best served by first attempting to negotiate an honest, fair and prompt response to a dispute, it often becomes necessary for an estate attorney to litigate in order to preserve and protect a family member’s personal rights and assets or a client’s inheritance.
