Thomas was born in Union City, Tennessee. The youngest of three brothers, he was raised in a family of grain and cotton farmers, which enabled him to experience the delight of living and working in a rural community.
Thomas graduated in 2021 from the University of Tennessee, where he studied accounting and finance and was the President of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity.
Thomas met his beautiful wife, Virginia Claire Walker Barnes, in Birmingham, Alabama while attending law school at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law. They married in August of 2022. Virginia Claire introduced Thomas to the South Georgia way of life, and they haven’t looked back since.
Thomas is in the top 15% of his law school class and will be graduating with his Juris Doctor in December 2023. He will sit for the Georgia Bar Exam shortly thereafter in February 2024.
Upon joining the firm as an attorney-at-law, his practice areas will include commercial litigation, general litigation, and business law. He is eager to join the South Georgia legal community and to serve his clients with his small-town values.
