Thomas Tabor Jr | Tabor Law Office


Firm Summary

He studied law under the late Tony Sutin, Academic Dean, and other fine faculty members too numerous to mention. He was provided with the opportunity to work part-time for the school’s founder, Attorney Joe Wolfe. The Appalachian School of Law became provisionally accredited by the ABA during the year of 2000-2001. Tom Tabor graduated from the law school during May 2001.

He then took the bar exam at the end of the summer of 2001 in Knoxville, Tennessee. While he waited for the results, he worked as a clerk for the Honorable Circuit Judge Stephens and Honorable Circuit Judge Murensiky in McDowell County, West Virginia. He received notification that he had passed the Tennessee Bar Exam in October 2001.

At the end of the summer of 2002, Thomas Tabor and his family moved back to the Claiborne County, Tennessee area with intentions of making it a permanent home. He recognized that God had moved for him and had granted his request to return to the Claiborne County, Tennessee area where he began working in the legal arena. He was given an associate job by the late Attorney Benjamin S. Pressnell, in Tazewell, Tennessee in 2003. He was then admitted in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee in 2002-2003. After awhile, Tom found that he had a desire to start his own law practice.

In November 2004, his solo law practice was started and he began practicing out of his own office in Tazewell, Tennessee. There, he has acquired extensive trial court experience in the State trial courts of Claiborne, Union, Campbell, Knox, Grainger, Hancock, Jefferson, and Scott Counties, and in the State Appellate Courts, and in the Federal Court system. He has been admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court since 2009.
