Firm Overview

In Texas it only takes one person's word that you broke the law to find yourself in handcuffs. Someone can tell the police you hit them, and you get arrested; an officer can claim you were driving drunk, and you're arrested. And when that happens, it can instantly feel like the whole world is against you. Let McCathern criminal defense attorneys stand behind you and be your voice. We are in this together.

Thomas "Tommy" Perkins joined McCathern in 2016. Previously, Tommy worked for the Dallas County Public Defender's Office and the Dallas County District Attorney's Office. These positions helped him to gain the necessary experience and knowledge to work in McCathern's Criminal Defense section.

Tommy is a member of the Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyer Organization and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 2013.
