Tina M. Wells has a wide variety of legal experience but currently focuses her practice in the areas of personal injury and nursing home negligence. She has vast experience in the courtroom and brings a unique perspective to her practice. Ms. Wells began her career as an attorney at a New York City defense firm where she specialized in personal injury and medical malpractice litigation. It was her compassion for the injured that ultimately led her to Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., where she continues to provide the highest quality representation to the victims of negligence.

Her defense experience provides the firm with a novel insight that helps maximize the recovery for all her clients. Since joining the firm in 2002, Tina spends most of her days in the courthouse fighting for the rights of the injured. The great respect she has earned from the Judiciary and her peers has enabled her to procure millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts in motor vehicle accidents, trip/slip and falls, construction accidents, premises accidents and nursing home negligence cases. Recently, Ms. Wells was elected First Vice President of the Bronx County Bar Association in recognition of her tireless efforts to improve the efficiency and equity of the Court system.
