He began his legal career at the law firm of Dunton, Simmons & Dunton, LLP in White Stone, Virginia, where, like all new associates, he represented indigent criminal defendants along with his other clients.

Tom Hendell returned to Charlottesville in 2015 to try cases with Tom Albro, whom many consider the greatest trial lawyer in Virginia. He is guided by the belief that most clients know exactly what is most important about their stories, and it is his job to listen, learn, and help them present their best case.
