Meet the Founder, Attorney Tom Saunders


As the founder of Saunders Law, attorney Tom Saunders has a long history of experience in civil litigation. Of over 100,00 lawyers practicing in the state of Florida, he is one of less than 100 who have been board-certified in both civil and business litigation. This has given him the opportunity to become familiar with both sides of a suit, allowing him to provide plaintiffs with the most comprehensive representation possible.

Tom has had the privilege of serving as the president of the Polk County Trial Lawyers’ Association, Chairperson of the 10th Judicial Circuit Bench/Bar Committee, Chairperson of the 10th Judicial Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission (the nine-member commission who makes recommendations for judicial appointments to the Governor of the state of Florida) and Chairperson of the Florida Bar Civil Trial Certification Committee (the organization that writes and grades the full-day examination given to candidates for certification as civil trial attorneys).

Additionally, Tom has served on the board of directors of the Willson American Inn of Court (an invitation-only organization dedicated to helping mentor younger attorneys with an emphasis on the professionalism required for the legal profession).
