Kilpatrick Law Group's mission is to help clients make smart decisions to resolve disputes as economically as possible. Some cases need to be tried and some cases need to be settled -- either way, Tom provides excellent advice and representation.
Tom regularly appears in North Carolina’s state and federal courts, and has litigated or arbitrated cases nationally and internationally. He is well prepared for his cases and enjoys litigating in the courtroom. His ability to compellingly and artfully litigate a case in the courtroom helps Tom to negotiate and mediate cases outside of the courtroom.
Tom's practice covers a variety of civil disputes including business contracts, commercial real estate and development litigation, executive compensation, franchising, construction, insurance coverage, fraud, self-dealing, and many other issues. He also assists individuals in matters such as condemnation, employment, trust and will contests, personal injury, and wrongful death.
Tom is a Certified Mediator for North Carolina Superior Court Civil Actions.
