Thomas and Paulk

Meet Jeff Thomas

I have some law enforcement and firemen in my family and there was a natural gravitation to do something that was justified, or something that was good or right. So I became a prosecutor. It was a giant learning experience. There was nothing that could prepare me for what I do today and who I am today, but getting that first-hand experience from being on the front lines, you see how someone deserves a break because they really didn’t do something terribly wrong, they weren’t trying to hurt anybody, and the guy who doesn’t deserve a break.

So I think that’s why we start looking at criminal defense, you get this feeling that you’re making that part right for everyone else that deserves that break. Because everyone says, “How can you defend those murderers?” Well, obviously, I don’t defend those murderers. Our clients are people just like you. Good ordinary people that had a bad day, that made a mistake, that need to figure out what we can do to get this taken care of, pay penance, and move on to get a second chance at life.

That’s basically how Jeff and I got started.

"When someone gets Jeff Thomas as their attorney, they’re getting an excellent attorney. If he wasn’t an excellent attorney, I wouldn’t be his partner. He’s a great advocate in court. Over the course of my career I’ve probably seen him in court thousands of time. He’s not afraid to ruffle some feathers. If he sees that a law enforcement officer has done something wrong, he’ll call them out, same with a prosecutor, and that takes a special kind of attorney." - Jeff Paulk

After 20 years, you look at doing the same old thing every single day, you have to have something that motivates you other than a paycheck. We don’t work for paychecks around here. We work for results. I’m going to look you in the eye and then I’m going to tell you what our plan is to get past this and to move forward and to successfully defend your case.
