Tad Thomas, a successful trial lawyer from Kentucky and one of the co-founders of Lawyer Minds, interviewed about his career and what he’s learned as a trial lawyer. Beginning with his decision about choosing this profession, Thomas talked about reading an article about a lawyer named Frank Haddad. Inspired by similarities in upbringing and Haddad’s tenacity when fighting for his clients, Thomas spent some time working for Haddad and the law has been his career ever since.
Robin Armstrong, medical director of The Resort at Texas City nursing home, is conducting a controversial observational study on the elderly patients diagnosed with COVID-19 in his nursing home. He’s administering the drug hydroxychloroquine to residents with the virus even though the drug has not been proven to treat coronavirus.
On Monday, April 13, 17 bodies were found in the insufficiently sized morgue of Andover Subacute and Rehabilitation Center in Sussex County, New Jersey. An anonymous tip led police to the nursing home, where they found the troubling amount of bodies crammed into the morgue intended for only four bodies. The anonymous source also said that the bodies were first stored in a shed but were moved to the morgue.
As our local communities and the world continue to react and implement measures to contain the coronavirus referred to as COVID-19, you may find yourself turned away from the nursing home where your loved one resides and unable to visit them. A responsible plan to protect nursing home residents has been mandated by most state governors. Nursing home residents are most vulnerable to the symptoms associated with COVID-19. Therefore, there is solid science and logic to such a quarantine.
If you have a loved one in a nursing home, we recommend the following:
On Friday, March 6, 2020, the first case of coronavirus (COVID-19) in Kentucky was confirmed in Harrison County. The individual, whose name has not been released, was first treated at Harrison Memorial Hospital and then airlifted to a hospital in Lexington. They were a resident in a nursing home. A team of doctors will be sent to Harrison County to figure out how the infected person contracted the virus and who they have been in contact with recently.
In response to this news, Gov. Steve Beshear declared a level 4 State of Emergency for the state of Kentucky on Friday night. Local nursing homes in the area have also stopped allowing their residents to have visitors. This is due to the fact that nursing home residents and other elderly and/or those with compromised immune systems are often the most susceptible of contracting any type of virus. In Washington State earlier this week, COVID-19’s contamination into one nursing home led to multiple deaths.
My family's attorney, Ms. Lopez, was professional, compassionate, and really believed in fighting for justice for our family. She was extremely diligent and we were very pleased with the services rendered.
Ms. Cordes has been wonderful to work with. She’s helped me with a situation that didnt seem to really matter to anyone. I felt entirely alone in the situation. I’m so glad to have her in my corner because I know she cares. I will forever be grateful for her help. If you need an attorney please don’t think twice! I will trust this firm with my life!! Chewy and I send our love and thanks ❤️🐾
Lindsey was very professional and caring. I felt like our case was a priority and she communicated everything. She took the time to get to know us and understand. It was a pleasure to work with her. Would highly recommend.
Lindsey and Tad were amazing! They worked to make sure that I was taken care of and they never once made me feel like my case was less important than any other that they were working on. The completely changed my life and I will forever go back to them with any questions or future needs that I may have in life!
I’m so thankful to have found Lindsay Cordes and the Thomas Law firm. Ms. Cordes is thorough, empathetic, and the best advocate I could’ve hoped for for my Title IX case. She went above and beyond my expectations, and it’s clear she is passionate about her clients.
Wonderful team that helped so much after my auto accident. My case was a little more complicated since it involved my work but they were so helpful in explaining the process and making sure everything was addressed with all parties involved. I would have been lost trying to deal with it on my own.
We initially hired an attorney in FL where we live but since the accident happened in KY, our FL attorney referred us to the Thomas Law Firm and I'm so glad they did. The experience was wonderful, they were very responsive to all our calls and emails and Lindsy has always advised us openly about our options. The case was rather unique and complicated but they were able to get us a great settlement as they fought very hard for us. They even got us additional benefits in addition to the settlement with the insurance company. I highly recommend them and wouldn't look further.
These are by far the utmost professional attorneys. they are very responsive and are willing to help anytime you call them. If you are in need of a law firm that will work hard for you then this is them. A special shout out to Lindsay Cordes and Tad Thomas they are the greatest.
I highly recommend Lindsay Cordes and Thomas Law Offices! The diligent work put forth for my Title IX case was of impeccable quality. This is a law office that cares greatly about its clients and their needs. I am extremely thankful for all that was done for my case. If you are looking for lawyers who give their all in the pursuit of justice, look no further, Thomas Law Offices is the place to go!
The hard work and dedication from Lindsay Cordes, Tad Thomas, and the entire team was able to receive a settlement in my TITLE IX LAWSUIT. (Caps lock for emphasis, trust me, it's needed.)Lindsay and Tad were the fiercest of legal defense as we fought stiff odds, the kindest of spirits as I cried from recounting trauma, the most reliable of sources when I found myself lost in legality, and the most effective of lawyers for winning this case! Title IX is a volatile field and campus rape a traumatic matter. Lindsay, Tad, and Thomas Law Offices navigated this battlefield of an issue with the utmost kindness, tenacity, compassion, reliability, and genuine investment in me not as a client, but as a person. I wouldn't wish anything less for your legal needs!
Tad is AMAZING! He handled two LLC's for my businesses and also did my WILL. He has been our attorney for several years and now has become more like family. He is professional, hardworking, and his team is GREAT!
Thomas Law Office was exceptional in handing my daughters car accident. They went above and beyond working with all the medical bills to get them lowered and with the insurance company to get us the best possible settlement w/o having to file suit. They were quick to always answering emails and phone calls. They even helped with answering questions we had with other issues that didn't involve our current case. They were great to work with. I highly recommend them and their services.
I have used the Thomas law office on several occasions for a myriad of legal matters. Everyone in the office was very professional and seemed genuinely concerned with my well being all of my concerns all the way to the receptionist. I highly recommend working with Tad and his team.
Tad and his team where an absolute blessing in my time of need and I could not have done it without them. Any questions I had where always answered in a timely manner and they worked diligently to get me everything I deserved and that takes time so don't expect anything to happen overnight. Thank you Tad and team! Especially Roxanne, I know you pulled for me a lot!
