Tom is an attorney in the Civil Litigation practice based in Wiedner & McAuliffe’s Chicago office.

Over two decades, Tom Soule has prosecuted, and defended against, complex claims at all phases of the litigation process, up to judgment and trial. He started at a preeminent plaintiff-side consumer protection firm, where he pursued classwide relief in federal and state courts across the nation – including a victory at the Supreme Court of the United States – for those facing unfair or deceptive trade practices. He then moved to the defense side, representing insured individuals, businesses and local government agencies, against claims seeking relief for common negligence, fraud, contractual breaches, personal injuries and wrongful deaths. His emphasis on thorough research, effective questioning in written and oral discovery, and plain-English briefing allows decision makers to develop litigation strategies and successfully execute on them.

A native of Glens Falls, N.Y., he is an avid fan of the Chicago Blackhawks and Chicago Cubs. He lives in Palatine, Illinois with his wife, Megan Dwyer.
