Tom Curti

Tom was born in LaCrosse, Wisconsin and raised on a dairy farm, the second of twelve children. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in History and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse in 1972, graduating Cum Laude. After receiving a LaFollette School of Public Administration Fellowship, he attended the University of Wisconsin Madison attaining a Masters Degree in Public Administration. In 1973, Tom was admitted to the University of Arizona School of Law, where he met his future partner, Robert Fleming. They quickly bonded as there were few out of state students.

Tom was admitted to the Arizona Bar Association in 1976 and entered the private practice of law handling cases as varied as class actions, real estate, criminal law, labor law and elder law. In 1990, after Robert Fleming resigned as the Pima County Pubic Fiduciary, Tom and Robert acquired the historic (1910) Hinchcliffe residence located at 330 N. Granada Avenue in the downtown area of Tucson.

Robert and Tom formed the firm of Fleming & Curti, P.L.C. in 1994, specializing in elder law issues. The firm maintained the office at 330 N Granada for 26 years, moving to their current, more modern office, in 2020. The firm continues to date and continues to specialize in elder law.

While in practice with Fleming & Curti, Tom was a Certified Specialist in Arizona in the area of Trusts and Estates, an AV rated lawyer, and a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. He was also licensed to practice law in Montana. In addition he was a Licensed Private Fiduciary in Arizona and acted as a Trustee, Guardian, Conservator and Personal Representative in hundreds of cases.

His community activities included serving on Board of Trustees for St. Gregory’s College Preparatory School (now the Gregory School), elected to and serving on the Board of the Pima County Bar Association, serving as Treasurer of the Pima County Bar Association, and serving as a member of the United Way Supporting Seniors Impact Council. He donated his services to Pima Council on Aging and volunteered as a Judge Pro Tempore for Pima County Superior Court.

Since retiring in 2019 Tom spends his summers in Flagstaff, Arizona with his wife Lois. He is the father of threes sons and has three granddaughters. His hobbies include golf, reading especially in the areas of solar energy and electric mobility, and he holds a private pilot license. Tom is a senior member of the Caballeros Del Sol and the Knights of Columbus and donates his time at Interfaith Community Services.
