Where Your Concerns Are Our Top Priority!

For over two decades, the attorneys of Thomas & Thomas Law, PLLC have served those who call Virginia their home. In April of 2016, however, he and J. Aaron Thomas (father and son) partnered together in an effort to distance themselves from the impersonal nature common in larger firms and to return the emphasis of legal counsel to where it belongs--on the client. Thomas & Thomas Law, PLLC provides courtroom representation for individuals, military personnel, and small businesses, and delivers quality service at affordable rates, with low down payments and payment plans for legal services.

What distinguishes your law firm from others?

At Thomas & Thomas Law, we believe an attorney should be the "captain of the ship" from the beginning of when a case sets sail until the case resolves, successfully docking in the harbor. The reality is any case represents the lives and concerns of those who must resort to legal action to ensure their interests are protected. That means for effective representation attorneys must recognize their clients are depending upon them to safeguard their rights, while being captain of the ship means fighting to protect those interests and making any client concerns a priority. Some larger firms have forgotten this basic principle and operate by taking in an unreasonable volume of cases, essentially operating as a "mill," i.e., investing as little time and resources into a case as is possible, disposing of it, and moving onto the next. Also, in some larger firms, the vast majority of case development is performed by legal staff, who are not attorneys, which raises the question of who exactly is making big decisions in the case. Under this model of legal representation, the attorney only takes command once a case is "packaged" to go to a hearing or the question of settlement has been raised. Ultimately, clients may become stuck with an attorney who does not truly understand them or the details of their case. The details, however, often make all the difference when fighting to prevail on your claim or in negotiating the maximum settlement value possible. At Thomas and Thomas Law, however, competent and experienced attorneys are at the helm the entire time. We place the interests of our clients first and strive to carefully explain the risks and benefits of each significant decision so our clients can make good informed decisions. Furthermore, we invest as much time or resources as we believe are required to successfully resolve a case, regardless of the size. While we value our experienced legal staff, who work incredibly hard at our direction and whose effort allows us to fiercely advocate for our clients, at Thomas & Thomas Law it is a captain whose hand is on the wheel from the time a claim is filed, whose heart is open to the concerns of the client, and whose judgment and experience guides the case toward resolution.
