Integrity. Loyalty. Candor. Respect. Thomas incorporates each of these values in his day-to-day practice. Born and raised in Northwest Ohio (Bowling Green), Thomas returned to this corner of the state after several years of legal practice in the Cleveland area. Thomas focuses his practice on residential and commercial real estate and construction law and litigation, as well as general civil litigation, small business law, personal injury law, and civil rights law.
Thomas emphasizes comfort, trust, and approachability in his client relationships, and creative, exhaustive and appropriately aggressive methods of actions on behalf of his clients.
Thomas earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Cincinnati College of Law, where he participated on the Moot Court team and served as a Fellow with the Ohio Innocence Project. Prior to his time in Cincinnati, Thomas graduated cum laude with a BA in political science from Bowling Green State University, where he was also inducted into Phi Beta Kappa honor society. Before pursuing law, he briefly worked toward a Ph.D. in political science at Texas A&M University. Thomas has authored two peer-reviewed academic articles with BGSU Professor David J. Jackson, Ph.D., published in The Harvard International Journal of Press/Politics and The International Journal of Canadian Studies, respectively.
