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.

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.
