Patrick James Toscano

Founding Attorney

Trial lawyer Patrick J. Toscano is the founding attorney of Toscano Law Firm. Mr. Toscano has handled hundreds of personal injury cases, including auto accidents, medical malpractice, product liability, premises liability, and workplace accidents across the state of Texas. His dedication to his clients and personal motivation to best serve them has allowed him to win against some of the biggest insurance companies and largest corporations.

Before his time in the courtroom, Patrick received a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from University of Texas – San Antonio. Soon after, he left for Lansing, Michigan to study law at Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. After his first year at Cooley, Patrick received an academic scholarship based on exemplary academic performance. In 1999, Toscano received his Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) from the university. He was licensed by the State Bar of Texas on May 03, 2000.

A native of San Antonio, Mr. Toscano returned to his hometown to begin his career fighting for those within his community. There, he applied what he learned in the classroom while learning how cases are defended and under which state defendants pay to settle lawsuits. After a decade of practicing law, Patrick continued to search for the best way to serve his clients and fight for the compensation they rightfully and legally deserve.

In January 2010, Mr. Toscano opened Toscano Law Firm. He wanted to be able to have a more hands on approach with his cases to ensure that his injured client and their family got back on their feet. The size of his previous firm prevented him from being as personal as he feels his position requires. So, when he opened his own firm, he made it a point to make the injured party and their family come first by providing his personal cell phone.

Now with almost two decades of experience, Mr. Toscano has recovered millions of dollars for his clients through “out of court” settlements and trial verdicts. His exceptional performance on behalf of his clients has qualified him as a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious group of U.S. trial lawyers with million and multi-million dollar verdicts, awards, and / or settlements.

Never has Mr. Toscano and his staff been more focused on providing victims of negligence and other wrongful conduct outstanding counsel. Determined to meet your goals, Patrick will explore all possible avenues of your case and determine the best course of action. Through hard work, creative problem solving, and an attention to detail, he hopes Toscano Law Firm best serves everyone that walks through their doors.

I was having a serious problem with a family member. I saw Patrick Toscano’s page and that he gave his personal phone number. He, not his assistant nor his secretary, answered immediately. After a short discussion, he told me what he could do for me then suggested we meet at MY convenience: no appointment, no having to wait, he was ready to help me right away. When I met him at his office, he had already started the necessary paperwork. I have never had an attorney be so quick, efficient, and ready to go. Mr Toscano’s phone number is now in my contact list and he will be the first person I call when legal help is needed.
