Very Capable and Caring Attorney
Steve handled my case with great care and concern. He kept us informed of all details and offered both the pros and cons of proceeding or not proceeding with our claim. His staff was also very knowledgeable and responsive. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone who has an accident or injury or worker's compensation case. He will put you first in all decisions.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Seach was very helpful and knowledgeable when I met him to go over what to do after the death of my father. He maintained himself very well in a hard situation (death of a family member). I believe the actions he recommended were right on point and I will definitely be using Mr. Seach as my lawyer in the future should anything come up.

"I've known Stephen for a number of years, including some transactions across the table. He is professional and personable. He handles some litigation matters that I don't, and I have no problem referring clients to him for issues that are outside my area of practice."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 05
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Attorney Seach is a professional in every sense of the word. He is very methodical in his approach to each case. Steve and I were successful in convincing the PA Charter School Appeal Board to overturn a school board's denial of a Charter School Application. We represented the underdogs and won the appeal on sheer determination, countless hours of document review and comprehensive legal document preparation. Steve respects his clients and treats the practice of law as a noble profession."
