Tad Thomas Elevated to President of Southern Trial Lawyers Association

Published on Feb 5, 2021 at 10:07 am in News.

Thomas Law Offices is proud to announce that on February 3, 2021, Tad Thomas was elevated to the position of President of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association.

The Southern Trial Lawyers Association was founded in 1988 by a dozen lawyers. Lawrence “Larry” J. Smith served as the first president. Smith named the organization as such after the already established Western Trial Lawyers Association.

The Southern Trial Lawyers Association promotes fellowship, learning, and networking among trial lawyers throughout 13 southern states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.

To qualify for membership, a person must be a practicing attorney, as well as a current member of their state trial lawyer association and the American Association for Justice. Decisions to approve membership requests are made by a member of the Board of Governors from the state in which they reside or practice or by a national officer of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association.

As President of the Southern Trial Lawyers Association, Mr. Thomas will choose a charity for the organization to support. The Association is committed to supporting charitable causes and helping those in need.

As the organization has grown, the amount of the annual president’s donation has increased as well. In the recent past, organizations like the Waccamaw Community Foundation, Churches Assisting People, Katrina’s Kids, Water Mission, Child Protect Children’s Advocacy Center, and DeKalb PATH Academy have received donations. The Southern Trial Lawyers Association is also proud of the support members provide to those throughout their own communities.
