D. Margeaux Thomas spent nearly 10 years practicing at elite BigLaw firms. In 2016, Margeaux, an entrepreneur at heart, took a leap of faith and became the founding member of ThomasLaw. Why? Because Margeaux longed to build something different and valuable for clients – a law firm rooted in a client-centric culture, essentially a law firm that seeks to make the client and the client’s objectives the primary focus. A firm that defines what “victory” looks like from the onset, so that the focus of every decision is results-driven. Margeaux thrives to provide every client of ThomasLaw with the experience gained from BigLaw litigation practice, all with the personal touch and greater value, efficiency, and flexibility of a small firm. Margeaux approaches litigation matters pragmatically – with an eye toward early resolution, balanced with an enthusiasm for aggressive courtroom advocacy when appropriate.
Margeaux, formerly with Miles & Stockbridge P.C. and Williams Mullen, has gained significant courtroom experience representing individuals and small businesses in complex commercial and business litigation, consumer fraud, and class action cases at the trial and appellate level throughout Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Margeaux has first-chaired numerous bench and jury trials on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants and obtained successful outcomes for her clients. Margeaux specializes in business partnership disputes, commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, and contract disputes (franchise, partner, shareholder, non-compete, non-solicitation, trust and trademark to name a few).
Margeaux graduated magna cum laude from Bowling Green State University where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations. Margeaux received her law degree from Catholic University of America, Columbus School of Law. Margeaux has been recognized in the Super Lawyers – Rising Stars Ed. From 2013 – 2019. Margeaux has lectured on consumer and commercial litigation issues throughout the country.
Margeaux grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and also resided in San Germán, Puerto Rico prior to moving to the Washington, DC area for law school. Margeaux enjoys spending time with her husband and twin boys, and in her spare time can be found cooking, and dabbling in her vegetable garden.
