Nationally recognized as one of the top civil litigators in her region as well as the entire country, Ms. Thomas focuses her practice almost exclusively on personal injury law, and she has achieved significant success advocating on behalf of plaintiff clients across her region who have suffered injuries or lost loved ones as the result of someone else's negligence or wrongdoing.

Among those cases, Ms. Thomas has maintained a particular focus on claims involving medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and other related issues.

An effective negotiator as well as a trial attorney, Ms. Thomas has helped recover substantial settlements and verdicts on behalf of her plaintiff clients, including numerous recoveries well in excess of a million dollars and several multimillion-dollar awards. Honored for her professionalism and service as well as her success, she received the Litigator of the Year award from the American Institute of Trial Lawyers in 2019. She has also earned designation as among the Top Ten Personal Injury Attorneys in Massachusetts and a Top Women Attorney in her state.

A 1999 graduate of Ursinus College, Ms. Thomas obtained her Juris Doctor in 2002 from Temple University's Beasley School of Law. She holds her license to practice in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She is also an active member of the Boston Bar Association, the Women’s Bar Association of Massachusetts, Massachusetts Bar Association, Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys, New Hampshire Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association and Philadelphia Bar Asociation, and USA500, among her other professional affiliations.
