Thomas D. Neville joined Kamerman, Uncyk, Soniker & Klein in 2023. Prior to joining the firm, he spent 18 years practicing personal injury, insurance bad faith, complex commercial litigation, and legal malpractice cases in Colorado. His cases included one of the largest single plaintiff personal injury cases in U.S. history and an appeal in which the Colorado Supreme Court set aside a common law doctrine that had persisted since the thirteenth century. Mr. Neville is an adept appellate advocate, who has argued in front of the Colorado Court of Appeals, the Colorado Supreme Court, and the South Dakota Supreme Court. His published decisions include Rudnicki v. Bianco, 501 P.3d 776 (Colo. 2021); Affiniti Colorado, LLC v. Kissinger & Fellman, P.C., 461 P.3d 606 (Colo. App. 2019); Bailey v. Duling, 827 N.W.2d 351 (S.D. 2013); and Nunn v. Mid-Century Ins. Co., 244 P.3d 116 (Colo. 2010).


In 2022 and 2023, Mr. Neville served as the President of Colorado’s largest specialty bar association, the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (“CTLA”). He was elected to CTLA’s Board of Directors in 2011, and served as the co-chair of CTLA’s amicus committee from 2010 to 2018. Published cases where Mr. Neville wrote amicus briefs for CTLA include LeHouillier v. Gallegos, 434 P.3d 156 (Colo. 2019) (holding that collectability is not an affirmative defense in a legal malpractice action); Calderon v. American Family Mutual Insurance Co., 383 P.3d 676 (Colo. 2016) (holding that auto insurers may not offset Medpay benefits against an injured person’s liability recovery); Bedor v. Johnson, 292 P.3d 924 (Colo. 2013) (abolishing the sudden emergency doctrine); and Cloer v. Secretary of Health and Human Services, 654 F.3d 1322 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (en banc) (recognizing availability of equitable tolling under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program).


Mr. Neville grew up in Alaska, where he got his first taste of legal work as a student attorney with the Anchorage Youth Court. He graduated from Gonzaga University with a degree in History. He spent six months studying at Oxford. While there, he rediscovered his passion for the law and studied the iconography and theology of angels. He received his J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2003, where he was a Chancellors’ Scholar and served on the board of editors for the Denver University Law Review. After law school, he clerked for the Honorable JoAnne Vogt, the Honorable Robert Kapelke, and the Honorable Robert Hawthorne, all of the Colorado Court of Appeals.


Prior to starting law school Mr. Neville worked as a quality assurance tester at a Boulder, Colorado game studio.


Mr. Neville is admitted to practice in the state courts of Colorado, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
