Thomas Bulman

Thomas Bulman founded Bulman Law Associates PLLC after working as a law clerk for the Montana Supreme Court and as an enforcement attorney for the Montana Securities Department. From the beginning of his private practice, Mr. Bulman focused on medical-legal cases involving car crashes, workers’ compensation benefits, and social security disability benefits. Bulman Law Associates PLLC has since merged with Jones & Cook Attorneys at Law to form Bulman Jones & Cook PLLC.
"I have dedicated my practice to assisting those that need it the most when they need it the most."

Medical knowledge is mandatory for any attorney who wants to successfully negotiate and, if necessary, file and win lawsuits for the client. Mr. Bulman has dedicated his continuing education to medicine and science as needed for the thousands of cases he and his team of lawyers have successfully concluded for their clients.
