Tad Thomas Named Lawdragon 500 Leading Consumer Plaintiff Lawyer for 2023

Published on Feb 27, 2023 at 2:54 pm in News.

For more than 30 years, Lawdragon has been compiling lists of the top lawyers across a variety of categories. Among those honored on the Lawdragon 500 Leading Consumer Plaintiff Lawyers for 2023 list is Tad Thomas, founding attorney and managing partner of Thomas Law Offices. With offices in Louisville, KY; Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; and Columbia, MO; Tad is a proud legal advocate for those who have been wrongfully harmed by the negligence of others.

To be named among the top consumer plaintiff lawyers in the nation is an honor. Among this group are attorneys who have advocated for consumers harmed by defective 3M earplugs, negligent opioid prescribing practices, and contaminated water at U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

Lawdragon’s selection process is built upon its three decades of “researching and reporting on the legal profession.” To be included in one of its guides, a lawyer must have had a significant impact in their area of law. Categories for plaintiff consumers on Lawdragon lists include wrongful death, catastrophic injury, pharmaceutical and drug injury, aviation liability, product liability, toxic environmental liability, and childhood and sexual abuse.

We are proud of all that Tad has accomplished during his time at Thomas Law Offices, including the roles he’s served in various major mass tort cases and the pivotal ways he’s helped victims of sexual abuse, nursing home abuse, and negligent security. He is a passionate advocate for injury victims and families who have prematurely lost loved ones in what should have been preventable incidents. In his capacity as a legal expert, Tad has served on a variety of committees, published numerous papers, given dozens of seminars, and currently serves as President of the American Association for Justice.

We strive to provide compassionate, steadfast, and unrivaled legal representation to injury victims and families who have had to say goodbye to loved ones far too soon.
