Dedicated To Helping People From A Young Age
Perhaps Tom realized his calling as a child when he saw bullies picking on the weaker kids. Perhaps it was when he was a young college student, alone and helpless as he recovered from a motorcycle accident. Whenever it was that he discovered his passion, one thing was irrefutable: he knew his calling in life was to protect working people and their families who had lost strength due to the wrongful, negligent acts of others.
He committed himself to creating a law firm 100% devoted to litigation. He actively sought to surround himself with injury lawyers who had the same grit, tenacity, and determination to fight for the rights of people who had suffered a catastrophic, life-changing event.
Metier Law Firm was born.
