I am very much among the living. My personal involvemen with Thompsons ended in 1983. I went back to the University of Georgia and earned my B.A. in 1985, followed by the Georgia State Univrsity College of Law, earning my J.D. in December 1987. I clerked for Prof. Alan M. Dershowitz at Harvard Law School in 1987/1988 I am admitted to the Bars of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, as well as many Federal courts. We moved to the Pittsburgh area in 2009 from Boston, to enlarge my practice opportunities. While I continue some activity in Boston, it's winding down because of the distance, and most of my work will be in Pennsylvania now, especially in the Federal courts.While I do have some fond memories of tracking down Thompsons and their history in my 20's, I have received even greater satisfaction in my legal career. Last year, for example, I succeeded in overturning the 1997 murder conviction of an innocent man, Grant v. Lockett, 709 F.3d 224 (3d Cir. 2013).

 

I married my wife Aileen in 1989, and we have three sons and a daughter. We live in a farmhouse on 13 acres outside of the Pittsburgh suburb of Butler, Pennsylvania. My office is in Butler, but my cases are mostly in Federal court in Pittsburgh, Johnstown and Erie.

Welcome to the forum.

You said "My personal involvemen with Thompsons ended in 1983"

Are you really out? Completely out?.... Once bitten by the Thompson bug, you are hooked for life. There is no cure. You will be back.

Roger,

 

glad to hear you are doing well in your personal and professional life.  I owe you a great debt of gratitude for taking the time back in the mid 1970's to share leads with me on collecting machineguns, when I called from my dorm room in central Ohio.  I found the oddest assortment of Thompsons, BARs, German MG's, a Stoner 63a and even some Vietnam bring back MGs.  Almost to a person, everyone I contacted mentioned that you had been in contact with them and how honest they felt you were in dealing with them.  I think I had better timing than you since the economy was in such bad state then, and I was able to close many deals on great items.

 

I also owe you for warning me about a character located in the suburbs of Chicago.  I did truly have to count my fingers after shaking hands with him, and even though I never completed a deal with him - it did come up during my background check for my first job at the Dept of Justice that he had fingered me as a possible buyer of MG's......no sh*t.  I had the tax stamps to prove it.

 

Semper Fi,
