Tom joined Offering Solutions in 2013, and there is absolutely no denying that he has truly changed us for the better. Bringing positivity, levelheadedness and a hopeful vision to everything he does, Tom's gift for calmly assessing a situation, weighing each of the possible paths, and determining the best path forward has shaped the way we do business. Quite simply, he has helped us create one success story after another for our clients. His respect for the fact that each person brings his or her own knowledge, perception and sensitivity to every circumstance, as well as his appreciation of its value regardless of whether it matches his own, is an unquantifiable strength that benefits not only our clients, but our firm as a whole.
Tom's practice currently emphasizes business law and general civil and commercial litigation. He has successfully represented business owners in disputes between members and with employees as well as owners and their insurers in liability and casualty claims. Tom is also experienced in construction law, representing general contractors, subcontractors, and homeowners in lien claims. Having previously served as an assistant general counsel to a large privately held emergency physician staffing company, Tom's diverse repertoire of work also includes healthcare law with an emphasis on compliance, reimbursement, billing, collection, and revenue cycle issues.
A graduate of the Loyola University School of Law where he served as a member of the Law Review, Tom is licensed to practice in both Louisiana and Texas. He successfully completed a course of study at the International Association of Defense Counsel Trial Academy in Colorado. A lifelong learner and believer in the power of education, Tom also serves as an adjunct professor of Business Law at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and as an Assistant Examiner for the Louisiana State Committee on Bar Admissions.
While Tom's professional career certainly benefits from all that he brings to the table, his community is better for it as well. If there is a need, Tom is there and can be counted on to stay until the absolute end. A continual source of inspiration in the ways that he finds to give back, he is currently the President of Kiwanis Club of Lafayette and serves as a lector at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist. He is a Knight of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem and also serves as the Recording Secretary for the Knights of Columbus Lafayette Council No. 1286. And because he seems to have time on his side with all the things he's able to accomplish, he of course still finds the time to support his beloved UL Ragin Cajuns with his family at his side. Wife Anita and children Emma, Adam, William, and Luke are Tom's truest treasures. It is this joie de vivre, constant optimism and boundless dedication that our clients find so refreshing and reassuring. We at Offering Solutions simply couldn't live without it.
