Have You Been Injured? We're Ready to Fight for You.

Innovation is Part of Thomas Law Office’s DNA

Published on Oct 4, 2016 at 12:00 pm in Fun Stuff.

When I restarted my Louisville, KY personal injury private practice in 2011, I had a clear vision of a paperless office. I hired people who could help with that vision, and together, we built a law firm that uses the best technology available. All of our systems are digital, and many are cloud-based. Case-management, document storage, phone systems, email — everything that used to take stacks of paper now happens virtually. This allows us to stay organized, be more productive, and get better results for our clients.

It’s an innovative approach, but I was raised in an innovative family. My paternal grandfather came to this country and ended up in Louisville. He saw that there were plenty of locals with fruit, vegetables, and other goods to sell. But they needed a place to sell it. He found a site on what was the edge of town at the time and started the Louisville Haymarket. In a time before big chain grocery stores, the Haymarket was where savvy buyers went to get the best ingredients around.

My grandfather was an impressive man. He survived polio, but the doctors said he’d never walk again. They didn’t know him very well, because he walked the rest of his life. If you didn’t notice his limp, you’d never know there’d been anything wrong with him. The same was true of his mathematics skills. He had a sixth-grade education but he could add faster in his head than I can with a calculator. He wanted the best for his children, and my father graduated from the University of Louisville with a degree in engineering. He worked for General Electronics for many years — another job that required innovation.

When you innovate, people see your success and want to do the same thing. My grandfather’s Haymarket drew crowds of sellers and buyers. I’ve seen the same thing with my paperless office. Attorneys want to use my approach in their own firms. There’s been so much interest that I teach seminars on the topic regularly. In addition to those trips, I’ll be in Charleston this month and in New Mexico on two separate occasions.

It looks like I’ll be on the road just as often in the future, too — I’m running for parliamentarian of the American Association for Justice. I’m already on the AAJ’s Executive Committee, and I’m ready to take my commitment to the next level. You’ll hear more about the campaign in the months to come.

I hope you find innovative solutions to any challenges you face this October. Stay tuned to our blog throughout the entire month of October for more legal info and fun, Halloween-themed posts as we share some of the content from the Thomas Law Offices October newsletter.
