Attorney Spotlight – Thomas N. Kerrick

  • Jul 15, 2019

Tom Kerrick grew up in a large family in small town USA.  While living in Elizabethtown, KY he was taught important values and principles by his parents, many aunts and uncles, teachers and coaches.  For the last 37 years, he has called Bowling Green home.  Since moving to Bowling Green in 1980, he has practiced law at the same firm.  Although the firm has gone through many changes through the years, Tom has been the foundation of the firm since 1980.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the University of Kentucky, he went to the University of Kentucky College of Law where he became interested in litigation.  Tom began trying insurance defense cases almost immediately upon graduation from law school.  He quickly developed a reputation as a trial lawyer, trying all types of cases ranging from automobile accidents, slip-and-falls, arsons, construction claims, and products liability.  Tom’s reputation for relating to jurors encouraged other attorneys to refer clients with personal injury claims to him.  Tom has successfully represented clients on both sides of the courtroom and sincerely believes that trying cases from both perspectives allows him to more thoroughly and objectively guide his clients through litigation.  Tom’s experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants, combined with his reputation for reasonableness, has led to a successful practice as a mediator.

Tom has served on the Kentucky Bar Association Board of Governors since 2013.  He served as Vice-President and was sworn in as President-Elect at the KBA Annual Convention last month in Louisville, KY.  After serving one year as President-Elect, Tom will serve as President of the KBA beginning in 2020.

 

Tom is married to Dr. Leslie Tutt.  They have three children and five grandchildren who seem to be involved in many, many activities.  Tom and Leslie enjoy playing golf and are currently building a house at Olde Stone Golf Club.
