Lindsay Cordes and Tad Thomas Recognized as Super Lawyers for 2017

Published on Jul 6, 2016 at 6:47 pm in Press Release.

Among the legal industry’s organizations that focus on high-degree peer recognition and professional achievement, one of the most well-known groups might be Super Lawyers, a rating service, magazine, and organization that recognizes the best U.S. attorneys every year. As part of the group’s strict selection process which consists of peer nominations and evaluations as well as independent research, the top 5% of attorneys reach Super Lawyer status—designating them as top-rated. The top 2.5% reach Rising Star Super Lawyer status which designates that the attorney is top-rated and either under 40 years old or has practiced less than 10 years.

In 2017’s round of evaluations, Thomas Law Offices is pleased to announce that our very own Tad Thomas has been recognized once again as a Super Lawyer—one of Louisville’s top-rated personal injury attorneys. As a Super Lawyer since 2012, this is his sixth time obtaining the recognition. Mr. Thomas is the owner and founder of Thomas Law Offices as well as an award-winning personal injury and product liability attorney. Earlier this year, he was recognized as one of Louisville’s best product liability attorneys in the plaintiff category.

We’re also proud to announce that Lindsay Cordes, associate at Thomas Law Offices and one of Kentucky’s Top 40 Under 40, was recognized as a Rising Star Super Lawyer this year. This is the first year she was elected to join the ranks as a top-rated Louisville, KY personal injury attorney. Ms. Cordes joined Thomas Law Offices in 2014. Her primary areas of practice include civil litigation with an emphasis in products liability, serious personal injury, and nursing home negligence as well as domestic relations and sexual harassment claims such as Title IX claims.

Aside from peer nominations and evaluations, Super Lawyers and Super Lawyer Rising Stars are researched and evaluated on 12 indicators of peer recognition and professional achievement from verdict/settlement history to experience, honors/awards, special licenses/certifications, bar and/or professional activity, pro bono/community service, scholarly lectures/writings, education/employment background, representative client history, and other outstanding achievements.

The entire team at Thomas Law Offices is honored to have Ms. Cordes and Mr. Thomas practicing with us and wishes to congratulate them on their accomplishments. As a private practice that’s dedicated to giving back to the Louisville community however we can, our law office feels peer nominated reviews and evaluations like the Super Lawyer organization are vital to helping spread the word about the exceptional legal services our city has to offer as well as recognize those who care as much about Louisville as we do.
