Tom brings his extensive experience and expertise to the firm, helping clients navigate thorny legal and regulatory issues. He will play a key role in the firm's ongoing efforts to provide top-notch representation to individuals and corporations confronted with criminal investigations and prosecutions, as well as complex civil disputes.

"I am honored to join Morvillo Abramowitz and work with such a talented group of lawyers. The firm's reputation for integrity and excellence is well-deserved, and I look forward to being a part of it," commented Tom.

Prior to joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Tom served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Karen LeCraft Henderson, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, and the Honorable Paul A.
