Tom realized a natural desire to help others early on. After earning a degree from Georgia Tech, Tom decided to put that desire to the test and enrolled at the Cumberland School of Law. During his time in law school, Tom worked full time at a large Birmingham law firm where he would continue to work for the next 10 years. During this time, Tom developed a work ethic and legal foundation which still guide his practice today.
One of Tom’s strengths as an attorney is being able to relate to all walks of life. Whether it was growing up in small town Alabama or attending college in Atlanta, Tom has learned to adapt and excel in any situation. He uses that ability to connect to both clients and jurors when it is necessary.
While the ultimate goal of any personal injury case is to obtain a fair and reasonable outcome, Tom realizes that no two cases are the same. Therefore, Tom strives to put each client’s needs first and formulate a course of action that will produce the best outcome for each individual client.
Tom has dedicated his career to helping clients who were killed or injured by the negligent or wrongful actions of others. He has focused his career primarily on motor vehicle accidents, premises liability, trucking cases, traumatic brain injury, nursing home malpractice, and wrongful death cases.
Tom and his wife Riley have been married for 10 years and have three children – Russell, Harris and Grayson. They currently reside in Tom’s home town of Alexander City. In his spare time, Tom enjoys playing golf, hunting and relaxing on Lake Martin. Tom is also active in youth sports, where he has coached wrestling, baseball and soccer. The Goree’s are active members at Trinity United Methodist Church in Alexander City.
