Discovery with Tom Driscoll III

Tom Driscoll III on hoops, unexpected judicial naps, and the food truck of his dreams

Published in 2016 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers magazine

I can’t go a day without … drinking practically a bucket of coffee.

If you were in my office, you’d … wonder how I get any work done with this mess.

The lawyer I most admire is … Judge Vincent A. Bifferato Sr.

The quality I most like in a lawyer is … integrity.

My career high point (so far) has been … assisting the Wilmington Education Improvement Commission in its efforts to improve the educational opportunities for students in the city of Wilmington.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a math teacher trying to start a food truck down the beach during summers—a taco truck serving all different tacos: fish tacos, Irish tacos, Italian tacos, Thanksgiving tacos. Nothing but tacos.

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … Justice Kennedy.

The SCOTUS decision I’d overturn is … Citizens United.

A different practice area that intrigues me is … space law.

My favorite Twitter feed is … @CoachBarney

I can’t believe more people haven’t read … Rockin’ Steady: A Guide to
Basketball and Cool
by Walt Frazier

I can do a pretty good impersonation of … Eddie Vedder and Dr. Phil. That’s not true. My impersonations are actually terrible.

My fictional hero is … Han Solo.

My real-life hero is … my dad.

The talent I wish I had is … being able to dunk.

The most fascinating person I’ve ever met is … There’s two, and they’re my kids, Lily and Thomas. 

The craziest thing I witnessed in a
courtroom is …
a judge falling asleep on the bench (I will not name any names here).

The last TV show I binge-watched was … Torchwood.

Nothing cheers me up like … an Eagles win.

If I won the lottery I’d … pay off my mortgage. Then buy a Tesla.
