Melissa Peace Tomaino is an Associate in our Northeast offices and is admitted to practice law in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Melissa handles cases in the areas of Construction and Property Damage, Commercial Trucking/Personal Auto Accident Defense, Employment/Sexual Harassment Defense, General Liability and Workers’ Compensation.
She has been practicing in the tri-state area since 2012. Throughout her career, she has devoted her practice to successfully representing and defending corporate entities and individuals in premises liability, commercial and personal motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, multi-party construction defect claims, sexual abuse/assault, vertical transportation cases and subrogation matters.
Melissa has had former experience being on the other side of the fence, which gave her valuable insight when she started her defense practice. The key to her success has been keeping in close contact with her clients, including pre-suit, to determine potential exposure, to ensure that they are always kept updated on every matter, and to bring claims to a resolution as quickly and efficiently as possible.
