He has defended cases involving all-terrain vehicles, automobiles, bicycles, motorcycles, electrical equipment and major bus accidents.

Tom also has a very active discovery practice. He is responsible for coordinating all discovery for the largest ATV manufacturer, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., throughout the nation.

He also participates in other areas of discovery and pre-trial preparation, including foreign and domestic company witness preparation and pattern issue defense strategy development.
Before joining Bowman and Brooke, Tom practiced in California, defending claims involving medical malpractice and product liability. In addition, he handled real estate and bankruptcy matters.
