Thomas Maddrey is the founding partner and lead attorney for Maddrey PLLC. Prior to attending law school at the SMU Dedman School of Law, Thomas was a commercial photographer, entrepreneur, and gallery owner.
His photography training was at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California where he obtained his first bachelor’s degree. Next, Thomas came back to his hometown of Dallas, TX and obtained a Business degree from The University of Texas at Dallas.
Realizing that his entrepreneurial endeavors and artistic background give him a unique perspective on the laws and cases facing those groups, Thomas enrolled at SMU where he obtained his Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree. Shortly thereafter, he passed the Texas Bar Examination and was licensed as an attorney by the State of Texas.
Thomas first worked for Harrison + Hull, a boutique litigation firm in McKinney, TX where he was focused on litigation. In his role at the firm, Thomas was a constant presence in the courtrooms of Texas, defending his clients and arguing on their behalf to tribunals across the state.
In October of 2015, Thomas knew the time was right to fulfill his dreams and launch his own firm, Maddrey PLLC. Inundated with clients from day 1, Thomas has grown into a master of keeping all the balls of running a law firm in the air at once. In December, he hired his first associate attorney, and multiple clerks to assist with his workload at the burgeoning firm.
Thomas knows that the choice of legal representation is not one undertaken lightly, no matter how big or small the matter. To that end, he is personally engaged with each and every client, and is always available to the clients of Maddrey PLLC.
“There is added responsibility when your name is on the door. I consider that the first contract I enter into with my clients. I will put my name on the work I do for you. I will fight on your behalf. There is no passing the buck. It stops with me, and my clients know it. That forms a bond between this firm and its clients that is built on pride, trust, and honor.”
