About Steven J. Tomesko Senior Litigation Attorney
Hi, I am Steven Tomesko, a proud Central Florida resident for 15 years, a husband of 11 years and a very proud father of two boys. I have not always lived in the Sunshine State; I was born and raised in a small blue collar community, Pompton Lakes, New Jersey.
As a young man I learned a lot about hard work and the importance of helping people in need. I saw how trial lawyers helped people in need, taking cases to trial and from that moment forward, the law has been my passion.
Following graduation from high school and the University of Tampa, I entered St. Thomas University, School of Law, located in Miami, Florida. In my second year of law school, I received the high honor of being selected to serve on the St. Thomas Law School Law Review, where I served as The Notes and Comments Editor. In addition, I was also fortunate enough to be selected to study one semester of law in Rome, Italy, which was an amazing experience.
In 1996, following law school, I accepted a position with an insurance defense firm and began my career as a trial attorney. In 1998, I continued my practice as a trial attorney and accepted a position with Travelers Insurance Company. I proudly represented Travelers Insurance Company and their clients for over thirteen years as a trial attorney handling thousands of cases in both State and Federal court, predominately in the areas of car accident litigation, wrongful death litigation, tractor-trailer litigation, slip and fall litigation, product design and safety litigation and dangerous construction litigation. Most recently, before accepting a position with the Law Offices of Dan Newlin and Partners, I was nominated in October, and again in November, for outstanding success as a Travelers trial attorney. I was awarded the Bronze Medal in 2006 through 2010 from the Florida Supreme Court for pro bono work on behalf of the Orange County Legal Aide Society.
Today, I am proud to bring all of my experience and expertise to you! I am passionate, informative and relentless in my representation of all of my clients. If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me directly.
