Washington-area based telecommunications, media, and technology law firm Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth, P.L.C. is pleased to announce that Thomas F. Urban II has joined the firm as Of Counsel. Tom has experience representing clients in everything from business disputes and class action cases to RICO actions and complex mortgage fraud cases.

When it comes to education, Tom has an exceptional pedigree. He received his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M where he studied Aerospace Engineering and graduated magna cum laude from the Georgetown University Law Center, serving as an associate editor of the Georgetown Law Journal. After graduating from Georgetown, Tom clerked for Judge Carolyn D. King, formerly the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Not many members of the U.S. Supreme Court bar can say they’ve boarded a burning ship and extinguished the fire, but while serving in the U.S. Navy, Tom did just that in a practice exercise. He is also a member of the bars of District of Columbia and Virginia, as well as a member of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, the U.S. District Courts for the District of Columbia and the Eastern District of Virginia, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

“I am very excited to be joining this excellent telecommunications law firm to bolster their already superb litigation practice,” said Tom. “I look forward to working with their attorneys and developing new relationships.”

Tom is passionate about his substantial pro bono practice representing preschool children with autism in Northern Virginia and working on behalf of the Southern Poverty Law Center opposing a Cert Petition. Somehow, he still finds time on the golf course where he has met Arnold Palmer and Jimmy Buffett.

“We are extremely pleased that Tom has joined Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth. His breadth of expertise in diverse areas of the law is remarkable,” said co-managing member Matt McCormick. “Tom brings substantial litigation experience to the firm and will help expand our growing practice in that area.”
