Tom is a former Deputy Attorney General who prosecuted DCP&P (formerly DYFS) cases and is always ready to diligently, zealously and fiercely protect his client’s rights in family and criminal court. After obtaining his Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy from Lafayette College and then his Juris Doctor from the Seton Hall University School of Law, Tom spent a year clerking for a New Jersey Superior Court Judge and learned what counts when a judge hears cases. Following his clerkship, Tom worked for a short time in private practice and then spent almost five years in public service with the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General.

During his years as a Deputy Attorney General, Tom tried countless cases for the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (formerly DYFS), conducting Order to Show Cause custody hearings, case management conferences, pre-trial conferences, child abuse and neglect fact-findings and termination of parental rights trials. Tom learned what it takes to manage an extensive caseload and develop effective case strategy. He also worked with expert witnesses including pediatricians, psychologists and psychiatrists. In addition to developing his trial advocacy skills, Tom also wrote numerous appellate briefs for DCP&P and presented oral arguments before the Appellate Division.
