Michael Tomasino, Esq.

Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Attorney Michael Tomasino

In the last five years alone, Mike has recovered in excess of $20,000,000  for his clients in workers’ compensation cases.

Mike is a member of the firm’s management committee and a  lifelong resident of Middlesex County. One hundred percent of Mike's practice  focuses upon the representation of seriously injured persons. Mike has  appeared in every worker’s compensation court in the State of New Jersey; and  has substantial experience obtaining favorable settlements on behalf of those  deprived by insurance companies. In the last five years alone, Mike has  recovered in excess of $20,000,000 for his clients in workers’ compensation  cases.

Mike approaches each case as if it were to proceed to trial. In  this way he can maximize the recovery for each of his clients. Mike routinely  handles claims arising from specific accidents, occupational exposure, and  exposure to toxic chemicals. Mike - whose father was a card-carrying union  member until the day he died -- has become a go-to attorney for members of  both private and public-sector unions.

In addition to workers’ compensation claims, Mike forcefully  litigates a myriad of personal injury claims. In fact, Mike has substantial  experience in automobile, UIM/UM, tractor trailer, ridesharing, medical  malpractice, and product liability cases. To that end, Mike has tried a slew  of jury trials to verdict with an overwhelming success rate for his clients.

Prior to joining Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq, Mike managed the  New Jersey and New York workers’ compensation departments at a nationally  renowned 2,000-attorney firm. Additionally, Mike served as an in-house trial  attorney for New Jersey's largest auto insurer.

 

Community Activities

During law school, Mike performed nearly 700 hours of pro bono  work -- largely due to his serving as a clinical student-attorney for both  the Rutgers Community and Transactional Lawyering Clinic and the Rutgers  Child Advocacy Clinic.
