Tom Carney is a Delaware real estate attorney, concentrating his practice in the areas of administrative and government law, land use and real estate, and business and banking transactions. Tom’s practice involves a wide range of commercial and residential real estate transactions and land use matters. Tom was born and raised in the City of Wilmington, attended elementary school at St. Hedwig, and later graduated from Salesianum High School. Tom has a B.S. in finance from the Pennsylvania State University and received his J.D. from the Temple School of Law. After attending law school in Pennsylvania, Tom made his way back to Delaware where he began his career. For the period from 2010 to 2017, Tom practiced in New Castle County in the public sector as an Assistant City Solicitor at the City of Wilmington and in the private sector as an attorney at Morris James LLP. In 2017, Tom moved his practice to Sussex County, Delaware. After practicing real estate law in both the public and private sectors throughout the State, Tom founded T. Carney Sussex Law LLC (TCSL) in 2019. After observing that sophisticated legal services were lacking in Sussex County, Tom founded TCSL to provide sophisticated legal services matching or exceeding comparable services found in larger metropolitan areas at competitive prices. Tom is the current Chair of the Real and Personal Property Section of the Delaware Bar, and now having offices throughout the State of Delaware, he is an active member of the Delaware legal community. As a native Delawarean, Tom is proud to call Sussex County home.
