About Thomas

Learn Thomas’s areas of practice.

My wife, Kim, and I both grew up in small communities.  After living from 1989 to 2001 in the Indianapolis area, we decided to relocate to Salem, where I grew up.  For almost 10 years, I represented the interests of insurance companies almost exclusively.  Since moving to Salem, I have phased out of all insurance defense work.  I now represent injured parties and provide legal services and counsel to individuals and small businesses.  This is not a wealthy community like the one I moved from.  But it is our community.  I have found there are far greater rewards in representing real people rather than insurance companies.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with family and freinds, reading, sports, volunteering at my church, and coaching soccer.
