Around 600 people packed into Superstition nightclub on Friday as he celebrated his 62nd birthday and his team securing $1 billion in lawsuits over the past four years.

Staff, clients, and friends of the firm walked the red carpet before being greeted with a fantasy-like scene with gigantic floral arrangements and aerial performers.

Porsches, Ferraris, and Lamborghinis that belonged to Thomas were parked outside the venue, while the lawyer also made a big entrance in a flash Bentley.

He was dressed in a dapper black suit and accompanied by his girlfriend Evelin Crossland in a glittering dress, as photographers gushed over their dog, Tito, who joined them on the carpet.

The two-level nightclub had several VIP sections and Thomas was seen pouring champagne for guests and sipping on a Modelo.

CHAMPAGNE STYLE

Steve Aoki had the crowd going wild within seconds of his 45-minute set and picked up a huge check for his DJ appearance.

He stomped across the stage as smoke machines went off and guests appeared to be having the time of their lives.

Aoki mixed hits from Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On and Britney’s Baby One More Time to Beyonce’s Texas Hold ‘Em and Morgan Wallen’s Last Night.

Women were going wild for the rising star as he performed his hits including Glamorous and Lovin’ On Me.

He was rumored to be paid six figures for his 30-minute set.

Jack told the lawyer his middle name is Thomas as he wished him happy birthday on stage after catching up with him backstage in the green room.

Guests were also treated to a lavish spread from Austin’s top-rated J – Prime Steakhouse.

Blinis with crème fraîche were among the appetizers, while partygoers were also treated to a seafood station with oyster shooters and shrimp cocktails.

Pork belly sliders, mini ribeye tacos, and a dessert table offering mini creme brulees were also set up on the second level of the venue.

The U.S. Sun went behind the velvet rope to chat with Thomas who was surrounded by revellers.

Asked about his lavish parties, he said, “They’ve been gigantic over decades, big figures, but the reason I do it is that half the people in here work with me at my law firm, we’re like a big professional family.

“When you run a big law firm it’s hard to meet everyone but I deal with them every day.

“We all get to go out, have a great time and rip it. I’m turning 62. We work hard, we do a lot, so let’s have a lot of fun. I feel 32.”

MILLION DOLLAR PAYOUTS

He’s pulled in $1billion for clients in the past four years and is believed to be America’s most successful personal injury lawyer.

Thomas is expanding his team in 2023 and has a proven track record of growing his workforce by 20 per cent each year. 

His big wins included $67million for a company vehicle accident resulting in spinal cord and back injuries, along with $60million for a drunk driving accident.

“I’ve been doing this for 35 years so a billion is kind of a small drop in the bucket for me,” he admitted.

“My goal is to lead people and then on the biggest cases go to trial and try those lawsuits. I’m multiple things. Besides a trial lawyer, I’m a mentor, I’m a teacher, I’m a leader.

“And most importantly, I get to be part of all of their lives, they have families; wives and husbands and children. That’s the best part.

“We all work hard and when we keep our heads down we can forget. Every once in a while we gotta do it [get together] because life will run you by.

“I like to work with people who work hard but we should all enjoy our lives.

“I’m very grateful for all the amazing people I work with.

“These things that we do, dealing with the most tragic things in life, yes there may be one guy standing in front of a jury, but it takes a huge team who get you there.”

As the night drew to a close, confetti fell from the sky and guests were sprayed with champagne before heading out around 2 am.
