Thomas Maddrey founded Maddrey PLLC in order to help those people who woke up every morning and went out into the world to create. As a former entrepreneur and artist, Thomas realized that for many individuals and small and medium sized businesses, the legal cards were stacked against them. Maddrey PLLC is a different kind of law firm, and it starts from Thomas’s desire to help companies and individuals grow not just this year or the next, but well into the future, knowing that they have a legal partner in their corner each step of the way.
