Tom was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and in 1992, graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Politics and a History minor from Saint Joseph's University (PA). Upon graduation, Tom relocated to Maryland to study at the University of Baltimore School of Law. He earned his Juris Doctor degree in 1995 and gained admission to the practice of law in Maryland later that year.
Tom began his career as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Susan M. Marzetta, General Master of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City from 1995-1996. He went on to work for the Legal Aid Bureau, and later, the Baltimore City Department of Social Services. Tom handled numerous child abuse and neglect cases, representing both children, and later, Baltimore City in these matters. This work provided valuable trial experience and cultivated an interest in working with families who are seeking resolution for their legal and practical issues.
Later, Tom broadened his experience in private practice firms that focused on domestic matters, civil litigation, elder law issues, guardianship and probate. Today, he enjoys working on a broad range of practice areas at Berger & Bums, LLC, the firm he co-founded in 2009 with his partner and friend, Victor Berger. Tom is also a divorce survivor, and as such, brings empathy to his clients in his domestic practice.
He and his current wife, Kristin, a Maryland native, reside in the Baltimore area. From his first marriage, Tom has a daughter who attends school in Howard County and who brings him much joy. Tom is also an avid fan of sports and the arts.
