When lawyers need innovative solutions for difficult legal issues, they call Thomas Neville. With a background combining appellate and trial experience, Thomas is Ogborn Mihm’s radical legal scholar, finding new and creative paths to solve problems. He brings this unique perspective to his primary practice area, handling insurance disputes for corporations and individuals whose insurance companies have abandoned them by leaving claims unpaid or by refusing to protect their insureds’ assets and livelihood. Thomas represents clients in insurance litigation both at the trial court and appellate levels. He also represents clients in legal malpractice, trusts and estates litigation, catastrophic personal injury and appellate cases.
Thomas grew up in Alaska, where he got his first taste of legal work as a student attorney with the Anchorage Youth Court. Educated at Gonzaga University, he spent six months studying at Oxford University, where he rekindled his passion for the law. Thomas graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in the top 10% of his class. After graduating from law school, he worked as a law clerk for the Colorado Court of Appeals for two years. During that time, he clerked for three judges, the Honorable JoAnn Vogt, Bob Kapelke, and Bob Hawthorne. Following his clerkship, Thomas went to work with Murray and Mike Ogborn in 2005. His analytical and writing skills make him well suited to address complex, technical issues.
Thomas Neville has been an active member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) since 2006. In 2010, he was asked to co-chair CTLA’s Amicus Curiae (Friend of the Court) committee. Members of the Amicus Committee donate their time to support plaintiffs who have appellate issues with far reaching impact for the people of Colorado. In 2011, he was elected to CTLA’s Board of Directors and served in that capacity until 2018, when he was elected as an officer of the organization.
