Tom joined CMG in 2015 after spending nearly 15 years working for a small Seattle law firm representing clients in a variety of legal matters. His past experiences included everything from representing clients cited for speeding, to representing large corporations in multimillion-dollar lawsuits before the Washington Supreme Court. As a result of these diverse experiences, Tom realized that he felt most comfortable assisting individuals injured by others.
The product of a family including three generations of medical professionals, Tom’s decision to focus his practice on helping patients injured by negligent medical professionals was natural. He views his current practice as an extension of his family’s tradition of ensuring that all medical professionals provide patients with the highest quality patient care.
When not at work, Tom enjoys spending time with his wife Traci and their four boys. Perpetually in motion, Tom and his family can generally be found traveling around the Pacific Northwest to youth hockey tournaments, in search of fish and wild game, or skiing in Cascades and Sawtooth Mountains.

My first job out of law school was with Tom's firm. During that time with Tom, I learned from him the right way to practice law: with tenacity, with compassion, and with honor. He is a great person and a great lawyer.
