THOMAS J. DEMARCO, ATTORNEY

I was born in New York City over 67 years ago into a poor Italian-American family. I attended school in New York and held a variety of jobs.

Eventually, I left New York and went to Law School in Arkansas. That was quite a change! I applied myself and worked hard. In June, 1980 I passed the bar examination as the highest scorer for the entire state of Arkansas.

After law school, I obtained employment in New Jersey. In 1983, I moved to South Jersey and I immediately fell in love with the area (Philly fanatics be warned: you can take the Knicks fan out of New York, but you can't take the New York out of the Knicks fan). I worked a tad under 9 years for the Public Defender Office. In 1992, I opened my criminal defense practice in South Jersey.

I have successfully represented Defendants in thousands of municipal and criminal matters and cross-examined hundreds of witnesses in all manner of criminal trials, including:

  • Kidnappings
  • Robberies
  • Multiple Murders
  • Carjackings
  • Drug Possession and Distribution
  • Resisting Arrest


I have even been published by the Camden County Bar Association. Lawyers read Bar Association articles, for guidance on what to do with a particularly tricky drug case.

Outside of the law office: The DeMarco's are active in their local church, homeless shelters, and with our local animal shelters. And with helping raise two of our granddaughters.
