What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
In addition to my law degree, I also hold a Doctor of Dental Surgery. I am a frequent guest lecturer at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, lecturing on various dental-legal issues, including dental malpractice avoidance, potential liability of dentists related to dental malpractice actions, Dental Board investigations, and representation of dentists after they have been charged by the Dental Board.
What makes your law firm unique?
While there are many great law firms in the Columbus area, we feel that Thomas Law Group provides service on a personal level that other firms may not be able to offer. The experience starts when you contact our office by telephone and are greeted by a live person instead of the voice mail maze we have become accustomed to. Our staff member greets you with "Hello, how may we help you?" The goal of Thomas Law Group is truly to help our clients resolve the legal problem that brought them to our office and to do it in a kind, compassionate, and professional matter, understanding that in many cases the matter that has brought our client to us is very stressful. We are a personal service oriented company. We strive to accommodate your schedule, both before and after normal business hours, to allow clients access to our attorneys and them to feel more involved in the legal process. At least one attorney is always on call, should you assistance after hours.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
I love to travel, though I don't get to do enough of it, in particular visiting my parents in Florida and my daughter in Las Vegas. I enjoy spending time with my new grandson. And, of course, watching the Buckeyes!
Describe your charitable activities.
Thomas Law Group supports several charities including Operation Buckeye (which sends care packages to troops over seas), Capital Area Humane Society, and American Cancer Society. We provide support directly with monetary contributions and, in addition, host an annual event to solicit funds from others. We also are involved in a recycling program that benefits the Capital Area Humane Society, as well as the environment.
