Thomas is renowned for helping his clients find the strength and courage they need to right the wrongs of the past, and the compassion to stand by their side every step of the way. 

Thomas has been a tireless and vocal advocate for survivors of sexual abuse for a decade and a half, helping hundreds of clients get justice in the face of evil. 

He has taken on schools, church bodies, government departments and sporting organisations which harboured and enabled predators to carry out their unspeakable acts, often against children. 

Thomas has secured millions of dollars in compensation for his clients, helping them access the vital support services they need to try to manage their trauma and rebuild their lives. 

On top of his work in abuse law, Thomas also has expertise helping clients with public liability, workers compensation and motor vehicle accident claims
