About me

Tom Kemmy has been representing people and families in personal injury, medical malpractice, business disputes and workplace accident cases since 1986. From 1990 to 1993 Tom took a temporary leave from the practice of law when he and his family served as lay missionaries in Mongu, Zambia Africa, where they provided villages much needed agricultural and medical support. Upon his return Tom continued in law and established his own law practice in 1994. Both Tom and his wife, Ginger Saldana Kemmy, are from San Antonio, have been married for over 30 years and are parents to eight children---the first four of whom are lawyers. The Kemmy/Saldana families carry on a tradition of service in the law and community that began with Tom's father (John Kemmy Sr., a lawyer who served in the FBI for over 30 years), and Ginger's father (John J. Saldana, Sr., San Antonio's first Hispanic postmaster). That tradition continues today. See Kemmy Lawyers working in the Community here.

Tom is board certified in personal injury law and was listed as a Top Lawyer in both personal injury and plaintiff medical malpractice by the San Antonio magazine Scene in 2010, 2011 and 2012. Tom's skills in personal injury litigation also earned him the recognition to be included in the 2010 and 2011 Texas Super Lawyers. Tom is also a member of American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an invitation-only national group of experienced trial lawyers and judges dedicated to the preservation of jury trials.

Tom draws on his extensive experience in litigation when representing clients in legal disputes involving personal injury, medical negligence, business law, work injuries, and oil and gas disputes.

The Law Office of Tom Kemmy has been given AV Preeminent* rating by Martindale-Hubbell. He has successfully tried a significant number of cases and he is known for aggressively representing the interest of his clients. The practice is founded on the belief that a trial lawyer's primary responsibility is to represent people struggling with serious life-changing problems who often times lack the resources to confront those responsible for the injustice.
