Brian Thomas provides a wide range of legal services to land trusts, nonprofit organizations, and private individuals in the areas of real estate, conservation (including conservation easements), wills and basic estate planning, nonprofit governance and support, and policy consulting. 


First trained as an historical archaeologist, receiving a Ph.D. in anthropology, Brian Thomas worked for over 25 years in the areas of cultural resource management and environmental permitting and policy before joining Fred Stocking to form Stocking & Thomas in 2016. Fred retired at the end of 2017, and firm changed names to Thomas Law in 2018.

Brian has a law degree from Georgia State University and is an active member of the bar in both Maine and Georgia.

In addition to a legal practice focused on land conservation, non-profits, real estate, and estate planning, Brian leans on the experience he gained during 9 years as a state representative in the Georgia General Assembly and his environmental permitting experience to assist clients on natural resource and other public policy issues.
