Tom is a proud member of the Injury Board, a group of like-minded trial lawyers from the United States and the United Kingdom selected based upon their proven successful results, leadership positions in state and national trial bars, and involvement and commitment to their local community.
As many of you know, Tom Chairs United Community’s Board of Directors, so it was the natural choice for Curcio Law to financially support and pack UC food boxes as our Day of Action contribution. We were joined by local missionaries from the Church of the Latter-Day Saints and dedicated UC volunteers. Together, we packed 106 boxes with Thanksgiving foods and fixings, such as macaroni and cheese, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rice, and gravy.
The Day of Action is always a great reminder of the many blessings that we have. Working with the missionaries and UC volunteers was a joy, and we hope our contributions helped many needy families in the Alexandria Community.

This amazing couple has been married for 75 years and are supported daily by the wonderful nursing staff from ACCfamily, which allows them to stay in their home. Now they can depend on a little additional help from “Alexa” throughout the day with verbal medication reminders, improved safety by asking Alexa to turn on and off lamps from across the room, and even tune in to their favorite music and radio programs.
Curcio Law is part of the Injury Board, an association of experienced trial attorneys practicing both in the United States and the United Kingdom. In order to become a member of Injury Board an attorney must prove his or her commitment to the four key areas that define the best of the legal profession: Relationships, Leadership, Community, and Results.
Each year the Injury Board hosts a Day of Action, a nationwide community outreach effort hosted by the Injury Board to bring together plantiffs’ firms from across the U.S., all working for the same cause on the same day. Through our involvement with Injury Board, Curcio Law has volunteered and aided the United States Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and the Boys and Girls Club of America.
