Edward Clement Sweeney

About Me

Edward C. Sweeney is a partner at Wusinich & Brogan and has been engaging for the last twenty years in civil litigation and dispensing legal counsel.  His practice is mainly a trial practice with focus in employment/labor law, disability coverage issues, and auto/personal injury.  A major focus of his practice is to litigate major civil  death and injury cases, including defective intersection, construction site accident cases, and work injury cases.  Lately, he has pursued several FMLA, ADA, and wrongful discharge based on retaliation for protected activity like reporting discrimination or filing a work injury.


Mr. Sweeney clerked for the Hon. James R, Cavanaugh of the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.  He is a graduate of the prestigious University of Chicago Law School and graduated with highest honors from La Salle University.  He is a St. Joseph's Prep graduate. 


Mr. Sweeney is not only a litigator, but has been a part time Solicitor for various independent offices in Chester County, including the Office of the Prothonotary, the Office of the Recorder of Deeds, and the dual Offices of the Register of Wills and Orphans' Court.


He is active in local public affairs and in his church.  He has served several terms on the Tredyffrin Planning Commission.  He is on the Parish Council of St. Isaac Jogues and is active in the SIJ Knights of Columbus. He is a leader in the Chester County Red Mass, and was one of its original founders.


Mr. Sweeney has published scholarly articles on various legal topics and has lectured on them.
