About Me

Dennis is the Senior Trial Partner with Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. His practice is focused on medical malpractice litigation. Dennis joined Lowenthal in 1986 after serving under Attorney General Dick Thornburgh in the criminal environmental section.


 


Prior to joining Thornburgh, Dennis served with the Attorney General of West Virginia, beginning as an Assistant Attorney and working his way up to Deputy Attorney General. During his time with the Attorney General of West Virginia, Dennis created an environmental task-force funded with federal government tax dollars. At its peak his task-force had 8 attorneys which under Dennis’ watch wrote or rewrote most of the rules and regulations relating to the environment for the state of West Virginia. Dennis also implemented guidelines for aerial spraying of power-lines to protect communities from being negatively impacted by the chemicals utilized for spraying. Throughout the implementation of these guidelines Dennis worked with the cooperation of the power companies.


Always interested in pro bono work, after winning a 13 million dollar verdict in a medical malpractice case in 2001, Dennis decided it was time to give back to his community in a grand way. He is the co-founder of the Christian Legal Clinics of Philadelphia which provide free legal advice in the 55th street area. The clinics continue to grow and expand with the goal of having five clinics running within the next few years.


 


Dennis obtained his undergraduate degree from Middlebury College and his law degree from West Virginia University College of Law where he was a member of both the Law Review and Moot Court. Dennis was named to Top Lawyers 2009, by Main Line Today (Medical Malpractice Law.)


 


In his personal life, Dennis is married and the proud father of two children. In his spare time he likes to grow a large vegetable garden each year and engage in woodworking and cycling.

    I met Dennis when I began working with his firm in early 2011. I found him to be both cordial and talented. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of a malpractice attorney. His manner and abilities are most impressive.
