Courtney Thom is an associate attorney with Manly, Stewart & Finaldi. As a career sex crimes prosecutor, her practice is focused on representing survivors of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment.
Before joining Manly, Stewart& Finaldi, Courtney served as an Orange County Deputy District Attorney for more than a decade. There, she represented the People of California in the prosecution of criminal cases, including sexual assault, rape, child molestation, child pornography, kidnapping, robbery, domestic violence, attempted murder, aggravated assault, and burglaries, among others. She conducted over 50 criminal trials during her career in the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
Starting in 2016, Courtney worked in the District Attorney’s Sexual Assault Unit where she exclusively prosecuted felony sexual assaults, including child molestation and forcible sex crimes. Many of the survivors in those cases were children as young as infants, adults abused as children, and vulnerable elder adults. Courtney worked closely with law enforcement agencies to investigate sexual assault crimes, filed criminal charges, directed criminal discovery, met with survivors, and conducted jury trials and sentencing hearings.
Waymakers, a prestigious Orange County foundation that provides critical services to survivors, presented Courtney their Sexual Assault Victim Service Award in 2019. Further, she has provided Sexual Assault Investigations training to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
