Tonda Curry


Tonda Curry has twenty-seven years' experience as a litigator in State and Federal courts.  She began her legal career as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Texas in the criminal division.  Tonda was respected by all the Judges of the District, as well as the defense bar, as a prepared and honest prosecutor.  Tonda went in to the private practice of law in 2001 and has represented thousands of individuals across East Texas.  Building on her criminal law foundation, Tonda has tried cases involving all types of offenses from misdemeanors to capital murder.


Since her criminal law beginning, Tonda has expanded and focused her practice to include areas which she finds personally rewarding and areas she believes are under served in the region.  Tonda particularly enjoys the challenge of health care fraud lawsuits.  Whether they be defending individuals or corporations accused of submitting fraudulent claims or whistleblowers pursuing qui tam litigation, health care fraud cases present a system of intricate rules and exceptions that require a litigator with a mastery of the subject.  Tonda takes pride in having mastered those intricacies.  She has tried to verdict significant health care fraud cases in both state and federal court.


As an outgrowth of her criminal law practice, Tonda learned that certain groups of East Texans were being left without options for quality representation.  In response, Tonda added immigration law  to her practice repertoire.  With her Spanish speaking staff, Tonda offers quality, honest representation to those looking for a way to obtain or maintain legal status in this country.


While the criminal justice systems prosecutes individuals on behalf of the community, it is possible for a crime victim to bring an action in civil court.  While it is not feasible to do so in every case, if there is a way, Tonda will find it.


Tonda is a 1988 graduate of Texas Tech University School of Law where she earned her litigator wings by successfully representing the law school in moot court competitions across the United States and Canada.  Also while at Texas Tech Tonda served as law clerk to the Honorable J.Q. Warnick, United States Magistrate Judge.
