Biography

Tom’s experience and background provide him the ability to understand the needs of his clients and efficiently and effectively communicate solutions to the issues at hand. From solo start-up ventures to large corporations, Tom is able to utilize his corporate experience to achieve the desired results for his clients.

Tom has been responsible for everything from the purchase and acquisition of multi-million dollar companies to the successful formation of federally recognized 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. His experience in both real estate and commercial transactions allows him to comfortably articulate any issues that may arise in the process of a deal.

Prior to joining Verrill, Tom was a corporate associate in one of Connecticut’s largest law firms. He gained valuable experience preparing and executing all types of deal documents and was regularly the point of contact when issues with the client arose. Tom was also an integral member of the law team utilized to establish a COVID-19 fund in the State of Connecticut and given formal recognition by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in less than 4 weeks.

During law school, Tom was a member of the American Constitution Society and served in the role of President for two years. He was also an intern with the Connecticut Children’s Law Center, where he provided valuable guidance to children and families that were navigating the Connecticut family court system. Prior to law school, Tom was an arborist for nearly five years, was a direct care giver at a Connecticut group home for teenage autistic boys, and gained experience in the Chicago Public School System after obtaining his undergraduate degree in education.

When Tom is outside of the office, you can find him with his girlfriend, Nikolinka (Nikki), struggling to learn Bulgarian, or with his family, where he is the proud uncle of 9 nieces and nephews.
