Experienced Trial Lawyers. A Family Legacy of Success.
Thomas M. Thistle, III, Esquire
Tom grew up in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and was a graduate of LaSalle High School in 1982 and Gettysburg College in 1986. He joined a public accounting firm following college and passed the certification requirements to become a CPA (Certified Public Accountant). After three years in general accounting, Tom worked in Internal Audit for three more years for an international manufacturing company. With six years in accounting, Tom felt a strong desire to follow in his family’s law tradition and became a third generation lawyer graduating from Villanova University School of Law in 1996. While attending law school, Tom clerked for the Honorable James R. Melinson of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Upon graduation, he began his career as a trial lawyer alongside his uncle, Dan Thistle, Sr. seeking justice for those who were catastrophically injured through no fault of their own. In 2006, Tom obtained his Master’s degree in Trial Advocacy from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law.
An accomplished trial lawyer, Tom has achieved numerous outstanding results for his clients. He focuses his trial skills representing individuals seriously or fatally injured due to the negligence of others whether caused by medical error, product defects, motor vehicle accidents, defective property conditions or the like.
Outside of his work, Tom loves to spend time with his wife and three beautiful daughters in Mullica Hill, New Jersey. An active member of the community, Tom coached his daughters in all of the local sports and is an active member of the Knights of Columbus aiding in their numerous charitable endeavors.
Daniel T. Thistle, Esquire
Dan Thistle grew up in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and is a graduate of St. Joseph’s Preparatory School and the University of Pennsylvania. After graduating from Penn, Dan followed in his father’s footsteps and attended the Villanova University School of Law. In October, 2006, he was privileged to join him as a member of The Thistle Law Firm.
In joining the firm, Dan’s hope was to provide the best services possible for his clients. This desire led to his decision to obtain his Master’s Degree in Trial Advocacy from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law in 2010. He was named to the Pennsylvania Rising Stars list by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers in 2015 and 2016 – an honor bestowed on only 2.5% of attorneys under the age of 40 in Pennsylvania. In addition to his excellent legal training and advanced degrees, Dan learned valuable lessons practicing alongside his father, Daniel L. Thistle, one of Philadelphia’s premier trial attorneys. Dan, Sr. advised his son to always put his clients’ interests first, to work hard in order to get the best possible results for them, and to complete these tasks with honesty and integrity.
Dan keeps these principles in mind as a partner of The Thistle Law Firm where he continues his father’s practice of representing those who have suffered serious personal and economic injuries due to medical malpractice, products liability, auto and trucking accidents, wrongful death situations, defamation, construction accidents, and miscellaneous mishaps.
The eldest of three children, Dan is a resident of Center City Philadelphia. An avid Philadelphia Phillies fan, he attends games whenever possible. He also hopes to return one day to rowing on the Schuylkill River where he spent eight years on the crew teams for St. Joseph’s Prep and the University of Pennsylvania.
