Thomas specialises in claims involving complex liability issues and has a broad experience of pursuing cases in Scotland’s Sheriff Courts, the All-Scotland Personal Injury Court and the Court of Session.

As a result of his expertise representing vulnerable road users, Thomas is often called upon to appear in the media to provide a legal commentary on topics relating to this user group.

Outside the office, Thomas enjoys riding his Triumph Scrambler on a sunny day, going on long forest walks with his labrador, mountain biking in the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders and spending time with his family.

I truly believe I can make a real difference when progressing my clients' claims, because I am both a cyclist and motorcyclist myself.
