In 2000, Mr. Ericsson left the world of civil litigation to pursue his passion for defending individuals accused of crimes. He accepted a position as a Clark County Public Defender, where he successfully tried hundreds of criminal cases. He re-entered private practice in 2005 with the goal of founding a firm that could provide a combination of expert trial work and aggressive representation for each and every client, whether the client is dealing with a serious personal injury or facing criminal charges.

Today, Thomas Ericsson is considered one of the state’s leading trial attorneys in the areas of criminal defense and personal injury litigation. As an AV® Rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell®, he has been singled out for numerous consecutive years by his peers and local trial court judges for having the highest level of legal ability and professional standards.
