Tom is a graduate of Northeastern University School of Law and Wesleyan University. Following law school, Tom served as an attorney in the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Monitoring at EPA headquarters in Washington, DC. Prior to joining Preti Flaherty, Tom served for more than two decades as a Partner and Of Counsel at two notable law firms in Boston.

His track record has distinguished him regionally and nationally, and we are excited to welcome him to our already outstanding environmental team.”
