Thomas J. Dwyer
Personal Injury Attorney
Thomas Dwyer grew up in Chicago. As a child, Tom’s father worked as a claims adjuster for auto accidents, so he was familiar with the impact these incidents have on people’s lives. Tom enjoyed speeches and performing while in school, which lead him down the path of a career as a lawyer.
“I think the one thing that I’ve really always enjoyed about personal injury practice is that you don’t have to wake up and wonder what your motivations are,” Tom said. “Everybody here is injured due to the fault of someone else and we’re trying to get money to get the back on their feet.”
Tom says he thinks McDivitt Law Firm’s team approach sets them apart from other personal injury law firms. With case managers and attorneys assigned to each case, clients are able to easily get a hold of someone when they have questions.
