Introducing your lower fee attorney
Lower fees plus tremendous experience

 
Donald J. Feinberg, J.D., LL.M.
MY STORY
Four phrases best describe my life: Second chance; Family; Opportunity; and Pursuit.

EDUCATION
After graduating from LaSalle University where I received a BA in Mathematics, I worked for eight years in the actuarial field assisting in the management of defined benefit pension plans. In 1991, I returned to school, Temple University School of Law. I quickly discovered that my true passion was trial advocacy and the law. Temple University School of Law recognized my passion, desire and hard work by awarding me Dean's List Honors every semester of every year as well as numerous outstanding class participation citations. I graduated cum laude in 1994, missing magna cum laude due to GPA rounding versus truncation issues. I would not have been able to succeed in law school without the support of my family who gave me the room, time, and motivation and encouragement to study. I also owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to my father, more on him later, who helped me understand the law and legal argument methodology during my training. Finally, in 2003, I returned to Temple University School of Law and received my Masters of Law degree in trial advocacy.

SECOND CHANCES
EVERYONE deserves a second chance. Sometimes good and honorable people make stupid mistakes. There are at least two ways to deal with stupid mistakes: Recognize your mistake and learn and grow from it or keep making the same mistake. With the support of my family, mother and father, I was able to learn from my mistake and to blossom there from. It was at this point in my life where I learned to love and recognized that people as a whole where good hearted and helpful. It is where I learned to help people. A lesson my father had been preaching his entire life. In dedication to my father, recently deceased in, February 2013, I made the decision to open my own law firm named in his distinguished honor "The Feinberg Firm". It is in my father's honor that I decided to charge clients reasonable attorney fees. It is also in his honor that I decided to handle first offense criminal cases, at a reasonable fee. If someone would not have given me a chance to succeed, I would not be doing what I love doing today. I am committed to attempting to give this same chance to deserving people.

FAMILY
In the background of every person is his family and friends. We are what we are because of family and friends. I am the younger of two children. My mother was stricken with multiple sclerosis when I was a young teenager. She spent most of my adult life in a nursing home. Seeing her in the nursing home was excessively difficult for me. However, my mother's circumstance made me empathetic towards individuals inflicted with unnecessary suffering. It has fueled my desire to help those who cannot help themselves. It is one of the two backbones propelling me in this newest venture. The second backbone is my father. I was raised by one of the pre-eminent personal injury litigators in Philadelphia. My resolve and dedication to helping others stems directly out of my relationship with my father. It took me a long time to realize that personal injury law is not about making money to live a rich lifestyle, but rather, helping others so that they can merely live comfortably. Again this is one reason for my REASONABLE fees. It is not about me, IT IS ABOUT YOU. My family has taught me about loyalty and dedication. I am blessed with two honest and intelligent children showing me that all people need is an opportunity. It is my cause to afford every client that I come in contact with this same opportunity.

OPPORTUNITY
After law school, I was fortunate to join my father in his law firm from 1994 through 2013. I started my career in a courtroom. I learned I passed the bar exam while assisting my father with a trial in Allegheny County. Working for my father allowed me to start trying cases immediately. Since that day, I have tried cases in many counties from Blair County east to Philadelphia County and north to Luzerne County. I have represented clients in over 20 different counties throughout the Commonwealth. I have met many wonderful, wonderful people and have enjoyed being able to assist them. Many are still friends today.

PURSUIT
You would think that the pursuit of justice should be easy. People make mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes injure others. Sometimes those injuries are small and sometimes those injuries are life altering. In either case, justice MANDATES that those injured should receive adequate compensation for their harms and losses. While all may agree with that point, the civil justice system has many pitfalls to justice: From greedy attorneys to greedy insurance companies. I am committed and dedicated to fixing what is wrong with the system. I believe in reasonable attorney fees, reasonable settlements and loyal and dedicated representation. I will pursue your claim, not a paralegal or other legal assistant. I will respond to all of your inquiries whether by e-mail or telephone. When you hire me, YOU HIRE ME not non-attorney support staff. Once you hire me I will pursue JUSTICE and not quit until JUSTICE is obtained. I have lived my whole life on a goal-obtainment basis. I set a goal and I achieve my goal.
