Special Counsel
Email Tom
My approach is centered on understanding each client’s unique needs and objectives from the outset. Litigation unfolds like a narrative, so in finding the most compelling story to tell I take care to focus my attention on the details, internalize the nuances, and strategize around my clients’ goals. In doing so, I can better ensure that our strategies are tailored to maximize our strengths while adhering to the joint principles of efficiency and efficacy. Quotation mark

Outside the Office

Outside of his legal practice, Tom is an active community supporter, contributing to initiatives aimed at enhancing Boise’s livability and providing opportunities for the education and development of Idaho’s youth. A lifelong runner, he can often be found seeking clarity through the agony of miles under his feet on Boise’s greenbelt and trails. Tom's love for the outdoors is at home in Idaho's wilderness, where he explores the state's natural wonders with his family and dogs. Mostly, he’s a devoted father, always on the sidelines and in the stands enthusiastically cheering for his children in their various academic and sporting exploits.
