North Phoenix Arizona divorce, custody and bankruptcy attorney Ronald V. Thomas is the sole owner of Thomas Law Office, which he established in 1996. Mr. Thomas was born in Providence, Rhode Island and spent his childhood there. He then pursued his college education in California, earning a B.A. in Psychology in 1993 from the University of Southern California and his Juris Doctor degree in 1996 from Southwestern University School of Law in Los Angeles.
While attending law school, Mr. Thomas clerked for a personal injury law firm that actively litigated many of its claims. Mr. Thomas was heavily involved in assisting the lead trial attorney in preparing cases for trial. Later in his law school career, Mr. Thomas clerked for a trial judge in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, in Burbank, California. Mr. Thomas had the opportunity to research legal issues and to observe hearings in various high-profile cases. Mr. Thomas and the trial judge would discuss various aspects of each case, including what the trial attorneys in those cases did well and not so well.
After graduating from law school in 1996, Mr. Thomas moved to Arizona to form the entity of Thomas Law Office after passing the bar exam in 1996. Mr. Thomas' practice grew quickly and he hired his first staff member in 1998. Mr. Thomas got married in 2000 and resided in Maryland for three years. There he obtained certification to practice law in Washington D.C. and Maryland and started to focus his career on representing bankruptcy, personal injury and family law clients. He also got admitted to litigate in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. After returning to Arizona in 2003 Mr. Thomas re-established the Arizona branch of Thomas Law Office and focused his efforts almost exclusively on handling Arizona family law matters and Arizona bankruptcy cases. In addition, Mr. Thomas has successfully handled a variety of personal injury cases.
As Thomas Law Office, PLC continued to grow, Mr. Thomas welcomed his first associate, Timothy R. Geiger, in early 2009. Mr. Geiger brought with him considerable experience from his former employment at the Attorney General's office and now handles many aspects of the firm's bankruptcy cases. This enabled Mr. Thomas to focus his skills and efforts almost entirely on family law cases in Arizona. Mr. Thomas has handled a plethora of different Arizona cases involving divorce, custody, child support, adoption, prenuptial agreements, grandparent rights, paternity issues, cross-state custody disputes, mediations, relocation cases, international divorces and custody battles, support enforcements, appeals, and high-asset dissolutions.
Mr. Thomas has shared his legal expertise on radio programs (KTAR and others) and in newspapers (such as the Arizona Republic). Mr. Thomas is an active member of several bar associations and is an active participant in discussions regarding recent legal changes and tips on litigation tactics. In addition, Mr. Thomas was appointed as a Pro Tempore Judge of the Maricopa County Superior Court in 2010.
