Tom Werge's legal practice focuses on complex commercial litigation at both the trial and appellate level. He has represented clients in breach of contract, legal malpractice, franchise, employment, personal injury, premises liability, and insurance cases in both state and federal courts. While he primarily handles civil litigation defense matters, Tom has successfully pursued affirmative causes of action in favor of his clients.

While in law school, Tom worked as a student attorney in the civil division of the D.C. Law Students in Court legal clinic.
