I currently represent numerous clients in a wide variety of personal injury accident cases in courts across New York State and prosecute claims for healthcare providers seeking reimbursement of denied healthcare services under the New York State No-Fault law.  

In addition, we represent clients in all matters of civil claims and litigation, with a unique "flex fee" approach, utilizing a cost containment approach.

Since its inception in 2001, my law firm, TonaLaw, has built a reputation as one of New York’s premier legal firms due to its expertise and integrity. TonaLaw’s consistent track record of successful outcomes coupled with uncompromising ethics instills confidence and trust in our clients. 

I’ve been a Suffolk County, New York resident since infancy and currently live on the north shore of Long Island with my wife, daughter, two dogs and cat. I’ve been a martial artist since the age of 15, and I am currently working towards my black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Excellent from start to finish.
Working with Tom and his team was a true pleasure. Excellent communication, excellent results, and they always have your best interests at heart. Working with Christina in particular was a breeze. The Tona Team made every part of an arduous process easy to manage and exceptionally clear. If you happen to find yourself in need of an attorney, I would highly recommend TonaLaw.

The Best and Most Caring Law Firm
After my insurance company unexpectedly dropped my car accident case, I hired Tona Law for assistance. I can’t express how much I love the people who work here. They are ALL extremely caring and professional and have stayed in touch with me to make sure I was receiving the medical treatment I needed. At one point I actually told Thomas to just drop my case because I was emotionally exhausted, and my insurance company told me I had little hope for a settlement. Thankfully he refused to give up on me and somehow got the wheels in motion again. But this is about so much more than money. It's a pleasure to work alongside someone who cares for you as a human being. Thomas is honest, compassionate and extremely professional. I thank God every day that I found this law firm and have them advocating on my behalf. I couldn’t be happier and recommend them highly.

Knowledgable and understanding with soft tissue injuries
I recently used Mr. Tona's services for a soft tissue injury. It is important for me to have an excellent rapport with whomever I am working with and he works well with understanding his clients needs. We had many discussions and he is open and honest and also a good listener and accepted some of my own feedback in dealing with this case. He is frank and gives me honest straight talk when it comes to doing what is best for the client.

Very Professional and Knowlegable.
I am a Chiropractor. I have been a client and friend of Toms for over 10 years. He has done professional work including arbitrating my denied no-fault billsand have won 95% of the times. I also refer my no-fault patients to him because I know he will be there for them and guide them and get the best settlement he can get. Great lawyer, great friend.

Excellent
I was involved in a major car accident last summer, the first of my entire adult life, that left my minivan totaled, the left side of my upper body mangled, and my psyche traumatized. Mr. Thomas Tona and his law team rushed to my legal aid by opening a suit against the person who could have killed me and left my young children without a mother. Mr. Tona promptly took my case and expertly advised me about the "no fault" process. He recommended credible doctors and therapists to help me reclaim my physical and mental health. Now ten months later my mind and body are nearly 100% restored, and Mr. Tona won the full financial settlement on my behalf. During those ten months of doctors visits, therapy sessions, and struggles with full-time work, housekeeping, and child rearing, Mr. Tona or one of his lawyers periodically checked in on my wellbeing. With specific regard to the suit, someone from the firm would keep me apprised of each stage as it arose throughout the process. In the end, justice prevailed, and I have Thomas Tona, JD and his outstanding team to thank for it.

Excellent experience with firm!
I was involved a car accident. As a small business owner I had to fight tooth & nail to get reimbursed for wages I paid out for placement needed to help run my business. I couldn't work for over 6 months. My insurance company kept telling me they were there to help me....not to worry about lost income & wages paid. Just submit and will be reimbursed. Well I did that and was turned down. Even had my attorney file and they were denied. I was referred to Mr Tona's office by my attorney and I have to say it was the best referral! Sadly I have a brain injury and everyone in the office was so patient & professional to me. Not only did they help me win my case against insurance company but they will also be representing me in another matter that I wasn't aware that I could dispute. Would recommend them to family & friends.

Personal injury
Aug 2014 my husband and daughter were involved in a car accident, they were both seriously injured, we were fortunate enough to be referred to Tom Tona. Tom work very hard to negotiate the cases for the maximum setulement amount, in a short period of time. Our cases were settled in less then a year and a half. Tom was a hands on attorney, when we called his office with questions he got on the phone and answered them promptly. We would highly recommend Tom Tona to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.
