About Me

I am Michael Monheit, the managing attorney for Monheit Law, located near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I have practiced law since 1989. I was also the managing attorney of the Law Offices of Herbert Monheit, a firm founded by Herbert Monheit in 1963. I am also the managing attorney in charge of all Internet business development for the firm of Anapol Schwartz. I was chair of the Fosamax Litigation Group with AAJ from 2007-21012. I currently serve on Trial Lawyers Care, Website and IT Advisory Committee, Marketing & Practice Development Committee, and Public Education Committee within AAJ. 

Monheit Law, P.C. concentrates its practice in the field of plaintiff personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis.


During my legal career my firms have successfully prosecuted thousands of cases and, at present, I am focusing my practice on complex cases involving defective health care and pharmaceutical products. I have developed a national reputation, including involvement in latex allergy litigation as a member of the Plaintiff's Steering and Executive Committee in MDL 1148.


I was also lead counsel in class actions involving childhood lead paint poisoning against public housing authorities (including The Philadelphia Housing Authority) and claims against the lead paint industry. 

I am an active member in various social networks including FacebookLegal Examiner,, PA-Law-Blogs, LawGuruLinkedInSlideShare, Google+, and Blogger.
