About Edward

Learn Edward’s areas of practice.

Edward prides himself in developing a rapport with clients by providing a comprehensive, yet cost-effective, approach to understanding the legal significance of each transaction, while taking a practical approach to the resolution of disputes. His straight-forward, honest style has earned him the deserved respect of colleagues and clients, as well as a reputation for being an effective and reliable ally. As one of few attorneys with a Masters degree in Business Administration, Edward understands the "big picture," as it relates to running a business, and provides legal and business counsel with the goal of protecting and advancing his clients' bottom line.

Prior to founding Thomas Law, Edward gained valuable legal experience as an associate in the business and commercial transactions practice group at a large Indianapolis law firm, where his practice consisted of handling complex business and commercial litigation in state and federal court, including issues involving shareholder, partnership and LLC disputes. Edward's practice focused on representing individuals and businesses in a variety of areas, including business transactions, succession planning, and commercial, industrial, and residential real estate acquisitions, leasing and financing. Edward also represented individuals, executors, and trustees when disputes arose in the settlement of estates and the administration of trusts.



Prior to joining the Indiana Bar in 2010, Edward gained valuable experience while serving six years active duty as a paralegal with the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps. While deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Bagram Afghanistan, Edward cleared a database backlog of international damage claims against the U.S. government dating back to 2001. Additionally, he ensured quick accessibility of opinions by interfacing seven years of legal files into an electronic database while deployed with NATO's Stabilization Force Headquarters, Bosnia-Herzegovina. Edward further expanded his legal knowledge by serving as a law clerk for the Honorable Cynthia Ayers, Marion County Superior Court Civil Division, as well as the Public Defender of Indiana during law school, prior to joining an Indianapolis law firm as a summer law clerk in 2007.

Edward currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Indiana State Bar Association, and is one of fourteen commissioners appointed by the Governor to serve on the Indiana Business Law Survey Commission ("BLSC"). The BLSC is responsible for advising the General Assembly on current laws affecting the business community, including making recommendations to ensure that the State of Indiana promotes a healthy and attractive business climate.

Excellent Advice, Extremely Helpful
My wife and I are dealing with an FHA discrimination case that escalated to a retaliatory immediate-possession eviction. This left us scrambling to get an attorney, as while Indiana Disability Rights is able to help with damages, etc, they did not have the resources to help with the eviction issue. Edward responded within an hour of my sending a message through Avvo and we discussed the situation. Edward was willing to work with us to get us the information and assistance we needed on short notice. Thankfully, Indiana Disability Rights decided that due to the maliciousness of our landlords they would make an exception and take our case, but Edward's advice was sound and mirrored IDR's recommendations. He was a breath of fresh air in our current situation and was responsive to our needs. I highly recommend Edward D. Thomas to anyone in need of an attorney or legal advice in his areas of expertise.
