I am a Board Certified Civil Trial attorney in Northeastern Pennsylvania with over 17 years experience.  I have successfully represented clients in jury trials in Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Wayne, Wyoming, Lehigh, and Bucks County, as well as in the Federal Courts in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.

I have secured on behalf of an injured client one of the largest verdicts in the history of Wyoming County for a car accident case.  Additionally, my representation of autistic children who were abused by their teacher resulted in a recovery for the students in excess of $10 million.

I have become well-known for my aggressive and successful representation of clients seriously injured in auto, truck and motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, wrongful death and other catastrophic loss claims, construction accidents, medical malpractice, as well as accidents involving burns, amputations and product liability claims.

very knowledgeable
Consulted with Attorney Conaboy for a matter, while I did not hire him he did answer my questions and assisted me and gave me legal advise on how to proceed. He did not just take my case for financial gain as the one review says. He could of easily took my case to make money, but instead he did not and in the end it helped me and saved me money. Also on the one review where it says he represents very questionable with a felony past. It does not and should not matter where yuo come from, or what your past is, you are still entitled to an attorney for any legal issue that may arise. I am glad that there is an attorney that does not judge his clients and helps regardless. I would recommend him to anyone who needs assistance for personal injury or Social Security.

Criminal and resigned.
FYI he is disbarred do to lying to clients about a settlement for years and forging judge's signatures when the case was actually dismissed. https://www.pahomepage.com/news/crime-courts/scranton-attorney-disbarred-after-accusations-of-misconduct/

"I have know Attorney James Conaboy long before I became an attorney myself. He is a gentleman and a brilliant attorney. James is at his best when representing his injured clients in front of a jury. He never backs down from powerful insurance company attorneys, because he cares so much for his clients.
