Thomas SlatteryDivorce & Family Law Attorney
JD, University of San Diego School of Law
If you are looking for a compassionate, experienced family law attorney in the San Diego area, Thomas Slattery is a trusted advocate ready to guide you through the legal complexities of divorce, custody, and other related cases, all while prioritizing your best interests.
A highly skilled and dedicated divorce lawyer, Thomas provides in-depth and comprehensive representation. An unwavering advocate for his clients, he has a deep understanding of the intricacies of the process and a sharp mind for crafting effective legal strategies.
Before making the shift to family law full-time, Thomas initially worked as a prosecutor. However, he spent the bulk of his career as a criminal defense attorney, working thousands of cases ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. This gives him a rare and valuable perspective on the legal system that he puts to excellent use for his clients.
“Family law appeals to me because I believe the court system often impacts people unfairly and denies them the opportunity to present their side of the story,” Thomas says. “The opportunity to help and counsel people when they are in what is—all too often—an unfair fight is something that is rewarding and gratifying to me both personally and professionally.”
Born in Britain, Thomas began his legal journey at the University of San Diego School of Law, where he earned his Juris Doctor in 1999. Additionally, Tom has been certified to practice in his home country of England and 30 other countries.
During his undergraduate days at Barry University in Miami, Thomas majored in English Literature, and often spends his free time buried in books. He also has an artistic streak, playing piano, composing music, and dabbling in screenwriting. And if there’s a Chelsea Football Club match on, you’ll be hard pressed to find him anywhere else.
