I was once asked to write 120 words that best describe me; here was the result:

 

Dad, husband, and lawyer are all labels given to me by default. I AM a defender of the poor, the less informed, and to those in which nothing extraordinary is expected. I fight injustice in the civil and criminal matters and am on the front line of defending our constitutional freedoms that are so frequently trampled on by those more fortunate.

 

The jury is the least corruptible instrument alive in today’s justice system and public opinion is being carefully crafted to reflect the interest of Goliath while David’s freedoms are being washed away in the name of Justice. I am not here to judge, I am here to inform, educate, and defend. (8 words shy)

Passionate about my case.
Mr. Tonry handled my case well. He was very passionate and empathetic to my needs. From the initial meeting until my case was over, he walked me through everything.

Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Tonry represented us in civil dispute. It was a very difficult case and we won due to his expertise. During the trail the Judge had to stop to verify the statute Mr. Tonry cited as he himself was not familiar with it. Upon departure he told the other counsel that had Mr. Tonry not cited that statute the case would have gone in their favor. It was a very emotional time for my family and Mr. Tonry was extremely professional, was very patient in answering our many questions, and truly seemed to care. His office staff was incredible as well. I would highly recommend him.

Communication is key. He calls me back quickly and answers all of my questions.
