Tad Thomas loves his time in the courtroom, but when he’s not advocating for his clients in their personal injury and civil cases, he’s a leader among lawyers.
Tad is a member of the American Association for Justice (AAJ), an organization that is committed to education and to providing trial attorneys with “information, professional support, and a nationwide network that enables them to most effectively and expertly represent clients.” There he educates his fellow attorneys through his involvement with the organization’s continuing education courses and with numerous committees.
Locally, Tad helps educate colleagues and citizens as chair of the Kentucky Justice Association’s (KJA) Continuing Legal Education Committee, and through his involvement with their Legislative Affairs Committee. The KJA is an organization similar to the American Association for Justice. But unlike the AAJ, the Kentucky Justice Association is specifically concerned with educating the local lawyers and citizens in our fair state.
As recognized leader in technology for lawyers, Tad travels all over the country to deliver speeches and presentations to his fellow attorneys about technology in law. He often speaks about the ethical challenges that he and his colleagues face in the social media arena and gives presentations on how to utilize technology in law to get the absolute best results for clients. Recently, he was asked to speak in New York at the AAJ’s Weekend with the Stars, an event where the AAJ says that “legendary trial attorneys share their experience and insights gained through hundreds of jury trials.”
