Drew Thomas has dedicated his career at Hartline Barger to seeking justice for clients by defending their products, businesses, and livelihoods, litigating commercial disputes, collecting debts to make clients whole, and passionately representing them in court to achieve fair outcomes. He has handled numerous civil litigation matters, each with its own set of unique facts and issues. He analyzes each claim at the beginning of the case to evaluate and pursue legal remedies that can make an immediate difference in the value or outcome of a case. Some of these legal strategies are detailed in his article Venue and Removal: Don’t Trust – Verify, published in the October 2022 edition of Headnotes, a newspaper published by the Dallas Bar Association. Drew has successfully defended multi-million-dollar disputes through settlement and trial and has litigated small claims. He can handle any claim, big or small. His peers have recognized his achievements and abilities by nominating him for selection in the Risings Stars list published by Thomson Reuters.
