Law Offices of Thomas Gelwicks – Accident & Injury Law
After 21 years working in a small law firm, in 2003 I had the opportunity to launch my own solo practice. This decision allowed me to continue to develop my niche practice in personal injury and wrongful death and get more involved in the community as a speaker, writer and volunteer.

I enjoy what I do and after 30 years, I am pretty good at what I do. My goal is to obtain fair compensation for individuals and families and help them put their lives back together.

Areas I focus on:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Rear end collisions
- Motorcycle accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip and fall
- Dog bites
- Head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Wrongful death claims

Tom Gelwicks has instructed Ohio lawyers with lectures on evidentiary requirements, trial strategy and arbitration/mediation techniques. He has written for commercial publications on the influence of law in our daily lives.

He has served as Chairman in arbitration hearings and he also has represented many clients in hearings involving injury claims. Mr. Gelwicks has generously shared his expertise with others regarding the subtle and interwoven strategies for successful arbitration and mediation advocacy.

For decades, Tom Gelwicks has been a member in good standing of the United States District Court and the Supreme Court of the United States. He successfully has argued cases before the state Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court of Ohio.

His most noteworthy achievement, in the appellate review system, has been Stanton v. Nationwide. This case substantially widened the scope of recovery after prevailing in the Supreme Court of Ohio. The Stanton case was heralded as significant by the national publication Lawyers USA.
