Firm Overview

The law firm of Thomas, Garvey & McKenna, PLLC has been serving the tri county area for more than 30 years. Over the years we have earned a reputation as tough, results-oriented litigators who are not afraid to take on large insurance companies and corporations.

We understand that our clients and their families have experienced life-changing injuries or the death of a loved one and we are here to help them through that process. From our offices in St Clair Shores, Macomb County, Michigan, we have represented thousands of clients in cases involving medical malpractice , defective products , personal injury and wrongful death cases . We have represented clients throughout the State Of Michigan and nationally.

The Right Firm for Your Case

Our personal injury attorneys prepare every case as if it is going to trial. This actually increases the liklihood of settlement . Insurance companies are aware of the fact that we are selective and that we thoroughly prepare our cases. If our clients are treated unreasonably we will trust the judgement of the jury. More often than not when we take matters to trial juries award far more than the pre trial offers.

The decision to proceed to trial is always left to the client, with advice from your attorney.

We are not a “volume firm” . You WILL NOT see our lawyers on billboards, busses or TV . You WILL see our lawyers honored by rating agencies such as Martindale Hubblell, U S News and World Report Best Law Firms In America , Best Lawyers in America , Super Lawyers ( top 100 lawyers in Michigan), and D Business . Additionally, Mr Garvey and Mr McKenna are members of the American Board Of Trial Advocates. Mr Garvey is a Fellow of The American College Of Trial Lawyers. The latter two organizations require a rigorous vetting process for admission that evaluates the candidates trial experience, trial results and standing in the legal community.


U.S. News and World Report has designated our law firm as one of the Best Law Firms in America…The only personal injury law firm in Macomb County to receive this recognition.

We have worked hard one case at a time to earn the trust of our clients and the judges and jurors we practice before.
