Thomas D. Berret
Thomas D. Berret grew up in Pittsburgh where he graduated from Central Catholic High School and the University of Pittsburgh, before he left for law school. After graduating from the University of Akron School of Law in 1995, Tom returned to Pittsburgh and began practicing personal injury law with a focus on helping people who were injured as the result of someone else’s carelessness or negligence. In December of this year, Tom will mark his 25th anniversary as a lawyer. This year also marks the seventh consecutive year that Tom has been rated a Super Lawyer by 2020 Super Lawyers®, part of Thomson Reuters.
For the last 23 of those years, Tom has been with Hal K. Waldman & Associates, representing people who have been seriously injured or had family members killed in car crashes, tractor trailer collisions, motorcycle accidents, premises liability incidents, dog bites, and medical negligence cases. In his time at the firm, Tom has helped countless residents of Pennsylvania obtain money to help them recover from the results of other people’s negligence.
Although he is recognized for his skill in handling personal injury claims, due to his depth and breadth of experience in the law, Tom has also been asked to help people with commercial claims, property damage claims, contract claims, landlord-tenant disputes, and workers’ compensation actions.
Tom has represented clients in courts throughout Western Pennsylvania, as well as in the Commonwealth, Superior and Supreme Courts of Pennsylvania. He is also licensed in the federal District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
Tom is a member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
