Tom Bulger has been with us since 1996 when he moved here from Philadelphia, where he had worked for a large personal injury law firm. He is a graduate of Canisius College (honors in History, and International Affairs) and Rutgers University School of Law (1993). He has worked for a United States District Court Judge and the U.S. Attorney's Office in its criminal and Organized Crime Divisions. He has been successful as sole trial counsel and also before appellate courts. Tom’s record in jury trial includes verdicts for our clients of $640,000.00 (motorcycle accident), $160,000.00 (auto accident). Recently his advocacy on appeal preserved a $470,000.00 judgment that he had won in Adams County in a slip and fall case. Tom has also obtained millions of dollars in quiet, confidential settlement for our clients, and has received a rating of 4.4 of 5 from the Martindale-Hubble peer review process (Distinguished) and 4.8 of 5 (Preeminent) based on client surveys. Tom has handled cases all over Colorado, from trials in the Denver Metro area (Denver, Arvada, Wheat Ridge, Boulder, Lakewood, Littleton, Thorton and Broomfield) to the mountains.
In addition to his background in personal injury law, Tom has developed a strong employee benefit practice which focuses on long term disability, short term disability and ERISA cases. Tom has helped hundreds of Colorado workers obtain needed insurance benefits.
At Silvern & Bulger, P.C., we have spent years focusing on our practice areas to provide our clients with the best representation possible. We do not handle every type of case, but hope we can be of assistance to all those in the community that need legal assistance.
