As the former owner of an applicant’s firm, Mr. Somers practiced personal injury law, as well as representing claimants at Social Security Disability Hearings.
When he joined the firm in 2011, he came with over twenty-five years of experience as an applicant attorney, and the refined listening skills that remain central to his commitment to communication. “Research is important, of course, but it is the personal relationship that makes all the difference. Yes, you’re talking business and always working the case, but what is at the heart of your clients’ challenges? You want to know what you can do to provide the best possible service.”
Thomas is involved in Whittier College’s alumni organization, the Orthogonian Society and is a platelet donor at City of Hope Hospital. Hiking, kayaking and golf top the list for Thomas, though this devoted outdoorsman acknowledges never having had a single digit handicap.
