Barry Krengel thinks and talks in sports analogies, a natural tendency for a man who plays to win, whether on the tennis court, where he plays U.S.T.A. doubles, or in the courtroom, where he is a passionate litigator. He represents clients, not cases, he explains. “When it comes to my clients, I don’t leave anything in the tank.”
As a trial attorney, the majority of Mr. Krengel’s practice deals with the representation of plaintiffs in personal injury suits including products liability and medical malpractice cases. Like the avid athlete that he is, Mr. Krengel has set challenging career goals for himself, and has managed to meet many of them, including receiving a million dollar verdict and arguing in front of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
Mr. Krengel is a long-time associate of Joel Todd, whom he considers a mentor. He has been with Dolchin, Slotkin & Todd, P.C. (DS&T), where he is a shareholder, since 1989. Prior to private practice, Mr. Krengel served as a law clerk to the Honorable Bernard J. Goodheart, in the Court of Common Pleas. Mr. Krengel has shared his professional knowledge in seminars for business groups and through writing for The Barrister. Martindale-Hubbell* has given him a BV rating for his very high legal abilities and ethical standards.
Mr. Krengel received his J.D. from Temple University School of Law and his B.A., magna cum laude, in political science from Villanova University. He is admitted to the bar in Pennsylvania; the U.S. Court of Appeals, the 3rd Circuit; and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern, Middle and Western Districts of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Montgomery County Bar Association and both the Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Associations.
Mr. Krengel lives in Bryn Mawr with his wife and children, the oldest of whom plans to practice law.
