“We are thrilled to welcome Tom back to Blank Rome’s national litigation practice,” said Michael A. Iannucci, Co-Chair of the Firm’s General Litigation group. “Tom ran an exciting and inspiring congressional campaign, especially as it related to student and volunteer engagement. We are excited for Tom to bring his passion, energy, and unique background to our team and to our clients.” 

In addition to his litigation and congressional experience, Tom is a published author and contributing columnist with the Pennsylvania Capital-Star, and has written several articles on issues related to cybersecurity, privacy, biometric data, immigration, and cryptocurrency. He is also a member of the American Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association, and Philadelphia Bar Association. 

Tom is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. He earned his J.D. from the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law and his B.A. in Philosophy from Dickinson College.
