Alan L. Poliner was born and raised in Philadelphia. After graduating from Temple University with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, he worked as a civilian engineer for the U.S. Navy. While working full-time for the U.S. Navy during the day, Mr. Poliner attended Temple University School of Law in the evening, and graduated with honors, cum laude.
It was during law school that Mr. Poliner caught the “trial bug.” Temple Law School has one of the best (if not the best) trial advocacy programs in the entire country. Since you should not go to a great seafood restaurant and order chicken, Mr. Poliner gave the trial program a try. He loved it – the excitement, the challenge, the strategy, and winning.
After law school, Mr. Poliner received “biglaw” training at a large Philadelphia law firm. Thereafter, he went in-house and took on a role as senior counsel to two national automotive franchises where he handled litigation, transactions and compliance for the franchisors. Mr. Poliner moved on to New Jersey litigation boutiques, litigating sophisticated and high value cases.
