Attorney Tom Demakis in his Downtown Lynn law office.
By Paul Halloran
Attorneys who practice business and real estate law typically do so in relative anonymity, operating about as far out of the legal spotlight as you can get.
That wasn’t always the case for Tom Demakis, a Lynn attorney who has worked the last 35 years at the family firm in Lynn founded by his father, Charles, in 1942. While Demakis is recognized as a go-to lawyer in his field, you’re probably not aware that he once played a leading role in the busiest and most prominent district attorney’s office in the country.
