Tumelty & Spier, LLP

Founded in 1998 and located in New York City, Tumelty & Spier LLP provides a variety of quality legal services to our individual and business clients. While the bulk of our practice consists of plaintiff's personal injury and wrongful death litigation, we also provide defense representation to clients throughout the area who have been charged with state or federal misdemeanors and felonies.

Our firm's attorneys have more than 60 years of legal experience. John P. Tumelty began his career as an associate district attorney with the Brooklyn District Attorney's office and later became a deputy bureau chief in charge of overseeing all staff attorneys. He then entered private practice and represented insurance companies in civil lawsuits before co-founding Tumelty & Spier LLP. Thomas P. Spier followed a similar path, trying 25 felony cases to verdict while at the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.

Since the firm was founded, we have been able to achieve many sizable settlements and jury verdicts on behalf of our personal injury and wrongful death clients. Some representative results include a $3.1 million jury verdict on behalf of an elderly client in a premises liability case, a $1.3 million verdict in a medical malpractice lawsuit and a $1.7 million settlement for a construction worker who was injured on the job. Our fellow professionals have taken note of our successes, as evidenced by both Mr. Tumelty and Mr. Spier being named to The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100. Our attorneys are active participants in a variety of legal organizations, including the American Association for Justice, the New York County Lawyers Association, and the Association of the Bar of the City of New York.
