Prior to joining Smith Haughey in 2006, Tom was a trial defense attorney in New Orleans, Louisiana in the practice of defending corporations, their executive officers and insurers in complex asbestos and silica exposure personal injury suits. In addition to the above described skills and experience, you will find Tom to be a very personable person with excellent communication skills who forges strong client relationships.
My practice revolves around three main standards: setting goals, achieving those goals, and building successful relationships. Each standard is set with an individual client and their unique challenge in mind. In order to achieve mutual success, I work to get to the heart of the problem, then continue to work to overcome every unique challenge and to acquire a cost-effective resolution in their favor. -Tom Aycock
