Overview

Thomas is based in Reminger’s Columbus office. His practice focuses on governmental/public entity liability, employment litigation, professional liability as well as a broad range of pre-suit investigative work and general litigation matters.

Prior to joining Reminger, Thomas served for three years in the United States Navy as a military police officer and for seven years in uniformed civilian law enforcement. Over his decade in police work, Thomas obtained several certifications and served in a variety of roles ranging from use of force training to hostage negotiations. Thomas also served for six years as a police union steward for the nation’s largest federal employment union representing fellow officers in pursuing grievances and against adverse employment actions.

These practical experiences give Thomas a unique insight into public entity liability and employment defense.

Thomas graduated cum laude and was awarded the Dean’s Award in recognition of his leadership and academic achievements.
