Tom Sampson is the Managing Partner of Thomas Kennedy Sampson & Tompkins. His roots are in Durham, where his father the late Daniel George Sampson, was a law professor and Dean at North Carolina Central University. Like his father, Tom graduated from Morehouse College and sought a career in the law. He has since practiced law for more than 35 years, building a national trial practice and reputation in the fields of Personal Injury, Wrongful Death and Medical Malpractice Litigation.
Tom has represented major municipalities, governmental entities, and individuals in complex litigation, and has successfully prosecuted and defended catastrophic injury and death cases in state and federal court. Additionally, Tom has successfully represented Fortune 500 corporations in major litigation.
Throughout his career, Tom has often been tapped to serve government, the Bar, and the community. He was the first African American inducted into the Georgia Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and he has been listed in every edition of the Best Lawyers in America since 1993. Tom has served as a Master in both the Bleckley and Logan Inns of the American Inns of Court. In 2007, Tom was inducted as a Charter Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America, an honor reserved for less than one half of one percent of lawyers in America.
Locally, Atlanta Magazine has consistently included Tom in its list of the “Best Lawyers in Atlanta,” and he has been selected for the list of Georgia Super Lawyers® every year of the publication’s existence, an honor reserved for the top 5 percent of lawyers in the State.
