Sometimes people make the mistake of thinking that quality legal representation must come from a big law firm. What they fail to realize is that big law firms are often unable to provide the one-on-one attorney-client relationship that helps attorneys deal with all of the challenges clients face when suffering from a personal injury. After 16 years as a partner of Wapner Newman and Associates, Attorney Louis Podel left to open his own firm, the Law Offices of Louis Podel, with offices in Philadelphia and Medford, New Jersey, so that he could establish those closer client relationships and provide the type of representation he believes all personal injury victims should have: personal, attentive, caring, and determined.

Mr. Podel is a graduate from Temple University and cum laude graduate of the New England School of Law, where he was on the law review. In 1981, Mr. Podel began practicing major personal injury litigation, making a name for himself in the Philadelphia area as a formidable plaintiffÍs attorney. Mr. Podel is a member of the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, was the Chancellor of the Brandeis Law Society, is a member of the Board of Directors of the Brandeis Law Society, and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Mr. Podel is also a popular lecturer and attorney-educator in civil litigation, with a focus on personal injury issues like trial tactics, emergency room negligence, ethics, medical malpractice, and products liability. His fellow attorneys, around the nation, often consult with him on complex medical malpractice and products liability cases.
