Ned Tonner received a Bachelor of Science in Finance in 1982 from Indiana University and received his law degree in 1985 from the University of Tulsa, in Oklahoma. He then clerked for the Honorable Michael S. Kanne, Judge of the Federal District Court in Hammond, Indiana, where he participated in numerous trials and learned the nuances of trial work.  

For the next five years, Ned practiced in insurance defense litigation firms in downtown Chicago and Los Angeles and in Orange County, California, where he defended various businesses and entities in personal injury actions. In 1992, Ned returned to his native Indiana and in 1994 opened a general law practice in Rensselaer, Jasper County, Indiana, where he concentrates in plaintiff's personal injury litigation, business/corporate law and wills & trusts. His understanding of insurance companies has been a key to the success of the firm's personal injury practice.

In order to accommodate its expanding personal injury practice, in 2007, Tonner Law opened its second office in Lafayette, which is located near St. Elizabeth East Hospital on Creasy Lane, just North of the Unity Group Physicians.  The Lafayette office services clients in Tippecanoe, Clinton, Carroll and Benton Counties.  The Rensselaer office services clients in Jasper, Newton, Lake, Porter, White, Pulaski and Starke counties.

In 2006, our firm became a licensed Title Agent through the State of Indiana Department of Insurance.  The firm provides title and mortgage insurance, prepares real estate contracts and deeds and conducts real estate closings through its licensed closing agents.

In addition to representing various businesses, Ned served as City Attorney for Rensselaer for 10 years for successive Mayors and has also been a Public Defender in both Jasper and Tippecanoe Counties. He is a member of the Jasper County and Indiana State Bar Associations, as well as the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association. He is admitted to practice in Indiana and California and in the Northern and Southern Federal Districts Courts of Indiana.
