Attorney Thomas B. Bellwoar, Esquire

Tom BellwoarBiography

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in Psychology at The Catholic University of America, Tom Bellwoar graduated from The Villanova University School of Law and was admitted to practice in 1990. He began his legal career as a law clerk to Federal Chief Magistrate Judge Tullio Gene Leomporra in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Tom has been recognized as a top lawyer by Main Line Today in 2015, 2016, and 2017.


Tom previously worked as a prosecutor for the Chester County District Attorney’s Office where he tried a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony cases. In 1993, he was prosecuting a case involving a dispute between neighbors, and he met Stanley Luongo Jr., who was representing the defendants. The two lawyers struck up a long lasting friendship that would eventually lead to the foundation of their firm, Luongo Bellwoar LLP). Their mutual interest in protecting the rights of crime victims and personal injury law became a mainstay of their practice.

Tom left the DA’s Office in 1997 and opened a law practice that focused on representing people who have been victimized by criminal wrongdoing. His former position as an Assistant District Attorney provides him with valuable insight into the inner workings of the court and criminal justice system that he employs every day when handling civil cases for crime victims. Tom and Stan represent citizens in Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Berks Counties as well as Federal Court in Philadelphia.
