About our Tacoma, WA: office

With over 20 years of experience, attorney Thomas A. Balerud devotes his legal practice to representing clients in personal injury and criminal defense cases, including injury claims arising from car accidents and aggressive defense of felonies and misdemeanors involving drug charges, DUIs, and domestic violence. He and his dedicated staff serve Pierce, King, Thurston, and Kitsap counties in Washington State.

Mr. Balerud opened his own office in downtown Tacoma after working for 17 years as a senior partner at a local law firm. He has enjoyed success in many well publicized, high profile cases in state and federal court, and he has achieved favorable results for clients as far reaching as California, Oregon, Alaska, and South Dakota. Past clients and fellow lawyers alike recognize his legal talent and skill, with one colleague noting that "Mr. Balerud is not only an excellent attorney, he is an institution in Pierce County courts."

In every matter, Mr. Balerud works closely with his talented paralegal Kayleen M. Murphy, who has been with him since he opened his practice. Before joining Mr. Balerud, Ms. Murphy worked in the medical field, giving her special insight into personal injury matters, and began her legal career at one of the most prestigious law firms in Southern California.

Mr. Balerud and his family reside in University Place. In his limited free time, he enjoys coaching his children's baseball teams, fishing, boating, and sailing.

    I was charged with a serious crime and was looking at 10 years of my life taken away from me. With the help of Tom Balerud the case was thrown out and I did no jail time. Tom really cared about me and my case and made it clear that he would handle the mess and he did just that. That mistake I made could have been a defining moment that destroyed my life. Because Of Mr Balerud, I was given the opportunity to watch my daughter grow up and make something of myself. Thanks Tom Read less
