Attorney Profile

Brady R. Thomas is a partner at Richardson, Thomas, Haltiwanger, Moore & Lewis. He focuses his practice on personal injury and wrongful death litigation, and he has experience with both individual lawsuits and class actions. Based in Columbia, South Carolina, Mr. Thomas represents clients throughout the state, including the areas surrounding Charleston and Greenville.

Mr. Thomas has handled consumer protection cases as well, and he was the lead counsel in a class action against motor vehicle dealerships that was based on excessive closing fees. In this case, the plaintiffs received an award of $4 million after an appeal of the lower court’s decision.

Mr. Thomas has been equally successful in his personal injury practice. He has obtained significant amounts of compensation on behalf of people who have been harmed due to the negligence or recklessness of other parties in cases involving medical malpractice, motor vehicle crashes, and defective and dangerous products. In the latter area, he has represented clients who were injured due to gas cans that had the tendency to explode, and his efforts in dozens of these cases led to their manufacturers installing flame arrestors starting in 2017.

His successful track record has earned Mr. Thomas a great deal of favorable recognition from his fellow attorneys, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and an “Excellent” peer review rating through Avvo. He has also been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America. Mr. Thomas is admitted to practice in both South Carolina and Georgia as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Middle, and Southern Districts of Georgia, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. He is a 2004 graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law.
