Matthew Tomkiel


Matthew Tomkiel is a third-generation attorney. His grandfather and father have represented injured workers since the 1970’s. Matthew has continued the family profession since 2003. Before that, Matthew worked in law firms throughout high school, college and law school. As an attorney, Matthew’s name appears on the letterhead of several firms where he is frequently asked to assist at trial and act as appellate counsel.



Matthew Tomkiel believes that the role of the plaintiff’s attorney is to guide the injured client through the civil justice system, which is a difficult and treacherous path. The insurance companies required to provide compensation to legitimate injury victims will do anything in their lawful power to delay or deny paying full fair and just compensation. Matthew Tomkiel publishes answers to common questions injured people may have about their case and how to avoid the common mistakes that insurance companies hope an injured person will make to reduce the value of their claim.

Matthew is an elected member of Super Lawyers and has the highest rating possible on AVVO. He received the ASLA top 40 under 40 award in 2016 and the ASLA top 100 attorneys award in 2019. In 2017, Matthew secured the third largest premises liability settlement in the state of New York, recovering $1,750,000 for his client.
