Biography

Tony Cosentino has recovered over $50 million in awards and settlements for victims of negligence and injured workers in Pennsylvania. Tony's cases involve motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, workers' compensation claims, construction accidents, liquor liability, premises liability and cases involving the general negligence of others. Over his career as a trial attorney, he has successfully represented firefighters, police officers, sheriffs, first responders, teachers, doctors, nurses, heavy equipment operators, welders, masons, electricians, selectors, forklift operators, truck drivers, roofers, blast operators, maintenance workers and highway workers.

Tony's legal victories have resulted in safer workplaces throughout central Pennsylvania, safety reforms in state agency practices, changes to industry standards, increased protections for the public, and the prosecution of businesses that refused to protect workers by illegally failing to carry workers compensation insurance.

In 2013, Tony became one of the first and one of the youngest attorneys to be certified as specialist by the Pennsylvania Bar Association's Section on Workers' Compensation. He has been listed in the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers-Rising Stars since 2014, which recognizes the top 2.5% of attorneys 40 years or younger in Pennsylvania. He has secured several million and multi-million dollar recoveries for his clients, and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, National Trial Lawyers Top 100, National Association of Distinguished Counsel, and achieved a 10.0 rating from Avvo.

Tony is a past president of the Franklin County Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division, currently serves on the Executive Board of the Franklin County Bar Association and will proudly assume the role of President of the Franklin County Bar Association in December of 2021. He was appointed to serve as a Franklin County representative to the Pennsylvania Bar Association's House of Delegates from 2009-2018. Tony is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice and the American Association for Justice. In the community, Tony provides pro bono services to Franklin County Legal Services and was recognized in 2020 as the Chambersburg Rotarian of the Year.

Tony attended Boston College and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. After graduation, he attended the Temple University Beasley School of Law, serving on the editorial board of the Temple Journal of Science, Technology and Environmental Law and earning distinction in Temple Law's highly acclaimed trial advocacy program, ranked #1 in the nation.
