In 1977, ten men and women joined their practices to form a new law firm in Harrisburg, PA that would later become known as Thomas, Thomas & Hafer. Serving the utility and insurance industries, their “mission” was a modest one: survival.
With the passage of each month and year, the confidence of this group grew as did the expectations of a satisfied clientele. A vision for the future began to emerge as Thomas, Thomas & Hafer earned the trust of its clients and the respect of its peers in the legal community. It soon established itself as the largest civil litigation defense firm located in Central Pennsylvania.
That vision—a regional law firm dedicated to the defense of insureds, insurers, and self-insureds—continues to grow today. With offices located in Allentown, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Spring House, Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania, Baltimore Maryland, Washington DC, Marlton & Clinton New Jersey, and Fairfax & Richmond Virginia, the firm’s 86 lawyers practice law in six (6) states — Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, Virginia, Ohio and West Virginia — and the District of Columbia. Their mission statement: to provide exceptional legal services tailored to the needs and expectations of a diverse client base in a manner that meets the highest standards of professional integrity.
