Litigation

Overview
Attorney Profiles

At DS&T, every litigator is an experienced trial lawyer, having trained in such intense, high-volume arenas as the Attorney General’s office and the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office. DS&T’s litigators are experienced in all manner of courtrooms and hearings, including local and state courts, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission.

The group represents firm clients in all litigation matters, including commercial litigation; catastrophic personal injury; products liability claims; and employment and discrimination matters. DS&T has substantial experience protecting doctors from personal excess exposure in malpractice cases, and is one of very few firms to handle complex cases in Orphan’s Court.

It is also one of a few firms in the region to have success in representing both defendants and plaintiffs in litigation matters. While most firms view a case from the narrow perspective of either a defendant or a plaintiff, DS&T has the unique advantage of understanding a case from all sides.

DS&T helps clients with litigation in the following areas: Disputes with Insurance Companies, including: bad faith claims; civil RICO; and first-party billings; Professional Negligence, including: defense of excess claims; plaintiff's malpractice cases; and expert testimony (legal malpractice); Real Estate Litigation, including: contract disputes over sale agreements; claims for hidden defects; and construction disputes; Business Litigation, including: commercial collections; employment law disputes; and dissolutions; Orphan's Court Litigation, including: contested estates; disputed claims; and fiduciary disputes; and Criminal Matters, including: white collar defense; motor vehicle cases; and protection from abuse.
