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.

Thorough and knowledgeable.
Alan is excellent. From my first consult with him in a franchisee suit, I knew I was in good hands. He had a thorough and deep understanding of the law, and he had excellent insight into my particular case. He was able to help me understand my options and, as such, I was able to avoid litigation. It was a huge win for me and my company. His attention to detail was second to none.
