It is with great sadness that the firm announces the death of our partner and friend, Thomas J. Leonard who passed away on April 8, 2020 due to complications from COVID-19.
Tom was a great trial attorney, dear friend and wonderful husband and father. He started his legal career as an assistant district attorney in the Bronx and then worked as counsel of record for St. Paul Travelers. He joined Barry McTiernan & Moore in 2005 and practiced out of our White Plains office. Tom tried cases throughout New York City and mentored other attorneys. But he was more than that. He was a friend, someone with whom you could share a story or a golf game. He was respected by fellow attorneys, clients and the Judiciary.
Tom leaves behind his beloved wife Patricia and their twin sons Brian and Gavin. The family has set up a website to remember Tom, and we ask that you share your remembrances of Tom there. The memorial page may be accessed at http://www.gatheringus.com/memorial/Thomas-j-Leonard/3005
