About Me

Alan Schwartz, a Shareholder and one of the Founders of Anapol
Schwartz, is recognized as one of the outstanding medical
malpractice attorneys
in Pennsylvania.


He has been involved in cutting edge litigation
throughout his career. Whether handling the first case against a
landlord by a tenant who was raped by an employee with a prior criminal
history, or expanding your right to sue your HMO, Mr. Schwartz is known
for his attention to detail and his thorough preparation for trial. As a
result, juries have awarded his clients many million-dollar verdicts.
The colleagues and opponents of Mr. Schwartz acknowledge his ability to
convey even the most technical information in a manner that allows
juries and judges to understand the most subtle issues in a case.

Association of Trial Lawyers of America, as well as with the
Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association. He is also a member of the

School of Law, the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the Philadelphia Trial
Lawyers Association, the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, the
Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the Iowa Trial Lawyers
Association, the Montgomery County Medical and Legal Conference, Thomas

Mr. Schwartz was the President of the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of
the National Board of Trial Advocates in 2002 and is currently a
