Tom was born and raised in Port Williams, Nova Scotia. He graduated from Dalhousie University with a degree in International Development in 2014 before moving to Fredericton to pursue Law at the University of New Brunswick, graduating with his Juris Doctorate in 2017.
Tom joined Valent Legal in March 2019. He is passionate about improving his client’s lives through the law and using humour to make the legal profession more accessible for his clients – something he tries to do every day at Valent Legal. His practice includes personal injury and accident claims, disability law, general civil ligation, small claims matters, and other forms of advocacy.
Outside his practice at Valent Legal, Tom has a long history of being involved in the performing arts and musical communities of Halifax. When he isn’t at work, he can likely be found writing sketches, or performing stand-up comedy. You might even catch him live with an Improv Comedy troupe, or playing ‘Julius’, his trusty guitar, at an open mic night.
