99.9% chance your money's as good as lost at this point.

To avoid similar costly mistakes, get a hardware wallet (Trezor or Ledger are fine) and keep your seed in a safe place.

It won't hurt to shoot an email to every one of these coin tracking/blockchain analysis companies on the rare chance they know something, or might know in the future. If the thief is a Romanian then you might have stand a chance at recovering the bitcoins, if it's a Muscovite consider the money lost.
